I promise to make this Olly Glowing Skin review a very worthwhile one. This will be all about covering various aspects to help make the most educated decision.
Thus, we will spend some time on the promotional materials and their promises. But we’ll spend quite a bit more on dissecting the beneficial ingredients. We will not forget about looking at the additives like most other reviews out there do. And, of course, some insight into customer feedback is always a great addition. Which will couple with discussing pricing, too.
This Olly Glowing Skin Review To Test All Of Their Promises & Beyond
According to the manufacturer, Olly Glowing Skin is “a juicy blend of super nutrients to help replenish and hydrate your skin from within so you can keep that youthful glow.” And per their words, to us have a “baby face.” Which overall, I imagine, does sound kind of nice. I mean, I guess many people are after something like that these days, right [R]?
The product page itself is a typical Olly production. Olly Women’s Multivitamin (review), Olly Kids (review), and Olly Undeniable Beauty (review) all had a very similar version of the page as far as the structure goes.
They even copy-paste certain sections of the page. And it’s also visually quite appealing just like its siblings.
As for the potential benefits, the tagline of this one concerns hydrated and youthful skin. Which I believe does cover quite well its main undertaking.
Other promises include getting a youthful glow for our skin, having an improved skin’s strength and structure, as well as revitalizing and nourishing the skin. In other words, all about the skin, exactly as the name of the thing suggests.
As for the marketing tactics, there are a few. Buy three right off the bat and get a discount like Olly Collagen Peptides (review). Get a 30-day money-back guarantee as It Works! CollagenWorks (review). Get free shipping when ordering over a certain amount like with the Reserveage Collagen Booster (review). And, of course, customer reviews just like PureNature Collagen Ultra (review).
But, overall, definitely a very well-thought-out product page. Is the supplement as well thought out though?
Hyaluronic Acid Is The Core Of This Olly & What Is That Collagen?
From an initial look, it may as well seem so. There are three capable ingredients. It’s, for sure, a better attempt than what we typically see from Olly. At least as far as the beneficial ingredients go.
Olly Glowing Skin is a supplement that per serving (two gummies) offers 120 milligrams of Hyaluronic Acid, 120 milligrams of Collagen Peptides, and 50 milligrams of Organic Sea Buckthorn Juice Powder. And we get 25 such servings per container.
Hence, we’re potentially looking at the full range of benefits here. Which include not only healthier, more hydrated, elasticity-abundant skin but also reduction of wrinkles, dandruff and bag under the eyes healing, benefits to the eye and joint health, as well improved wound healing among other benefits [R, R, R, R].
So, that’s pretty great. What not so great, however, is the Collagen contents.
I mean look at any proper Collagen supplement like Orgain Collagen Peptides (review) or Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides (review). Such typically come with 10-20 grams of the protein per serving which is 10,000-20,000 milligrams instead of just 120 milligrams. Or to paraphrase, that’s about 80-160 times more. With that in mind, I don’t think there’s really anything we should be expecting from this addition [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
I mean, it’s almost like it’s there for them to just have the opportunity to brag about it. Not that it will actually deliver any tangible gains. Personally, really not a fan of such non-sense hoaxes.
And the last ingredient is kind of a similar story. It’s not as bad as far as the amounts go, but not quite ideal either. So, I imagine the benefits here might be quite limited. We might be potentially seeing something like improved heart health, skin health, immune function, liver health, digestion, as well as among other benefits it can help battle inflammation, diabetes, and cancer. But as mentioned, it’s sad that the amounts are kind of low though [R, R, R, R, R, R].
So, with the Olly Glowing Skin, it’s kind of all about that Hyaluronic Acid. It’s quite abundant here unlike the other two it adds.
To Review Additives, The Brand Is Such A Sinner, It’s Ridiculous
Additives is a pretty huge tripping point for quite many supplements, as well as at times for entire brands like Vitafusion (review) or Smarty Pants (review). These two are just too hard on their sugary approach to supplementation. But even if it doesn’t involve sugar, these is plenty that can go wrong.
On that note, what about this Glowing Skin of Olly supplement?
Well, it’s actually pretty decent. That is if we don’t account for the sugar contents.
The product uses Glucose Syrup, Water, Beet Sugar, Vegetable Oil (Coconut, Canola), Carnauba Wax, Gelatin, Natural Flavor, Citric Acid, Blackberry Juice Concentrate, Pectin, and for coloring Carrot and Blueberry Juices.
Generally speaking, most ingredients probably won’t cause any trouble despite the supplement of this review not actually being NSF-certified [R].
But the way I see it, sugar-related ingredients like Glucose Syrup and Beet Sugar can definitely do some damage and contribute to quite devastating health conditions.
The consumption of this carbohydrate has been linked to learning difficulties, eating disorders, weight gain, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, aggressive behavior, hyperactivity, as well as among other stuff cancer. It also messes with the brain health and makes us quite literally dumber [R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
But to make matters worse, two things. First, we typically already consume too much sugar daily. Adding more with supplements makes no sense to me. Second, Glucose Syrup may actually be one of the absolute worst sugar forms there is. Namely, it may actually be the High-Fructose Corn Syrup just hiding under an altered name [R, R, R, R, R].
Here’s the whole thing from another perspective. With Olly Glowing Skin, it’s 10.3 milligrams of sugar per every milligram of nutrients. Or in other words, it contains 10.3 times more sugar than the beneficial stuff we get.
I that really the way? Especially, when options like Stevia and Monk Fruit exist for making stuff sweeter while having none of the terrible health effects and being actually healthy? Yeah, I don’t think that what this Olly does is the way [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Customer Reviews Promise Success But Realistically They’re Low
If we look at the customer feedback that we can find on the supplement’s product page, it looks really great. I mean, there are a total of 29 Olly Glowing Skin reviews there. Of these, 21 are five-star, 5 are four-star, 2 are two-star, and then, a single one-star rating to round things off.
Meaning, 28 positive reviews versus just a single negative one. It would suggest that the global success rate of the supplement of this review is upwards of 96.6%. Which would be a busted high one. But is that a genuine thing?
From where I stand, it doesn’t seem to be that way at all.
I mean, many supplement manufacturers have review sections for their supplements. The problem with them, however, is that they rarely represent the truth. Because most manufacturers are well aware that great reviews help drive sales, and hence, naturally, they’re interested in boosting those. Which is what commonly happens.
So, these can give some idea but if we’re after the real truth, they’re as useless as they come. Therefore, knowing that, I took it to all third-party sellers and retailers for a reality check.
And it turns out, it’s at least 10% worse. Meaning, in total, I managed to find 1,031 Olly Glowing Skin reviews. Of them, 866 were positive whereas 165 were not that happy with their purchase. And that’s not a 96.6% success rate as the product page claims. No, that’s an 84.0% success rate. Which, generally speaking, isn’t that great.
But to that end, I did quite many people being extremely enthusiastic about it. And then, there were some that went as far as even saying that this is the best supplement out there. Which, personally, I would disagree strongly but that’s their opinion, right? Either way, it certainly was more fascinating to look at the negative feedback.
I guess the most prominent complaint was that it tasted nasty. Others were unhappy with the gummies being stuck together. For others more, it did not work at all. And then, there were those for whom it did the exact opposite that it promises. Namely, for them, it ended with breakouts and other side-effects.
But these were not the most concerning pieces of feedback, the way I see it.
At least a few Olly Glowing Skin reviews reported that people were sent old, expired gummies. Whereas there were other comments that enforced this idea that these gummies sold on Amazon might actually be fake. Which certainly isn’t a good vibe.
Higher Price With Gummies Is Expected But Skinny Glow Isn’t Good
I didn’t actually see anyone complaining about the price when going through the customer reviews of the Olly Glowing Skin. Still, from experience, gummy vitamins are not usually the most affordable of supplements. I mean, of course, it depends on the actual ingredients but just generally they tend to be more pricey than, say, capsules.
So, what the price is like for this particular product?
Well, I probably wouldn’t say that it’s terrible but it isn’t great either. I mean, the regular price for this one is $13.99 for 25 servings worth of product. And that may not seem expensive. But it’s $0.56 per serving or 46.6 cents per every 100 milligrams of Hyaluronic Acid (plus, of course, the minuscule amount of Collagen and some Sea Buckthorn).
Now, check that against something like the NeoCell Hyaluronic Acid, and it seems pretty equal. I mean, the NeoCell costs typically about $22.94 for 60 servings. That’s 38.2 cents per 100 milligrams of Hyaluronic Acid. So, slightly cheaper but it doesn’t have the addition of Sea Buckthorn or Collagen (no matter how ridiculous).
But the bigger difference becomes quite apparent once we compare the additives. You see, NeoCell has none of the harmful ones. Whereas the Olly Glowing plenty. Plus, the former is also Non-GMO certified. Whereas Olly doesn’t even claim to be GMO-Free without a third-party certification. Hence, it likely does carry some GMO ingredients. Which is never ideal.
Now, but if we compare the supplement of this review with something like the Now Foods Hyaluronic Acid, it’s just bad all and throughout. I mean, not only would I prefer the Now Foods option in terms of quality every day of the week, it’s also significantly cheaper. And it has none of those sugar-soaked additives.
To illustrate, the Now Foods option typically costs about $23.74 per container of 120 servings. Per 100 milligrams of Hyaluronic Acid, it costs 19.8 cents. That’s more than twice the difference in price. Plus, Now Foods adds a bunch of other useful substances beyond the mentioned acid as well.
I Strongly Believe This Supplement Is A Definite Must Avoid
I genuinely believe that Olly Glowing Skin does some really awesome marketing. The beneficial ingredients without context also look pretty great. And then, the good-looking packaging is like a cherry on top. Oh, yes, and the superficially low price. I mean, I can absolutely see how people get persuaded into buying this product.
But I don’t think it’s a decision in our best interests to get it. And I think at least a number of reasons support that conclusion.
First, the biggest reason, for sure, is the additives. Diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and 10 times the sugar for every beneficial ingredient. It’s just ridiculous.
Second, it doesn’t have that great success rates. Third, not that great actual price per 100 milligrams of Hyaluronic Acid. Fourth, there likely are GMOs in it.
Hence, (out of avoid it, consider it, shortlist it, buy it) I reckon we should simply avoid this. There is no point in ever going for this. I mean, if you need to, then pick a decent Hyaluronic supplement like the one by Now Foods, and just buy a candy bar. It will be more beneficial, tastier, and more affordable.
But if you’re serious about adding to your skin’s health, as well as you’d love some gains to hair, nail, and joint health, I would highly recommend looking into a decent Collagen supplement instead. This is my favorite one (full review with a summary).
Above all, I hope this Olly Gloving Skin review helped you find the information you were looking for. Would you still go for it? How did this one first appear on your radar?
