HUMGlow Sweet Glowreview

HUM packs three of your skin's favorite ingredients into one delicious vegan citrus gummy

Overall

Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins C & E are beauty power players. Plus HUM added Amla Fruit, a lesser-known antioxidant that's a cornerstone of traditional Ayurvedic medicine.

Effectiveness

Beauty comes from the inside out, and we love to know our skin is getting all the nutrients it needs. But are these more effective than topical products with the same ingredients? Hard to say. Depends on where you want your Hyaluronic Acid budget to go!

Tastiness

These are the most delicious of the HUM gummies. A bright and tangy tangerine that tastes like candy.

Bang For Buck

Considering there's no biotin, collagen or keratin, these are a little pricey for ingredients found in many supplements and skin care products.

We personally try and independently review every product featured on this site.

It’s no secret we’re big fans of Hum products. And the Glow Sweet Glow gummies are even more delicious than the other Hum gummy offering, Hair Sweet Hair. We could eat this tangy tangerine all day like it’s candy.

If you’re living in a dry climate or facing those winter skin blahs, then you’re probably going to need more than moisturizer alone to keep your skin healthy and hydrated. Sometimes topical solutions alone don’t do the trick, and we need to moisturize from the inside out.

That’s why we love to incorporate a little something extra in our beauty gummy regimen. 

So what’s beyond that delectable, tangy flavor? Let’s take a bite:

hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is vital to keeping skin hydrated from the inside out, and helps stave off fine lines and wrinkles. It keeps skin juicy, while also promoting quicker wound healing and even helping with joint pain, by keeping our joints lubricated, too. 

We’re big proponents of getting that hyaluronic acid into our gummies one way or another, and we did a little deep dive into how this miracle molecule works in our OLLY Glowing Skin review

Glow Sweet Glow has 120mg of hyaluronic acid, and also contains your recommended daily amount of Vitamin C and Vitamin E. So if you forget the multi, these can do a little bit of double duty on some crucial daily essentials.

But why the Vitamin C and Vitamin E for a beauty gummy??

vitamin e

If you haven’t noticed, Vitamin E is a common ingredient found in many skin care products.

That’s because Vitamin E, when ingested, serves as an antioxidant and helps protect the body (and skin!) against free radicals. And nothing compromises that dewy look like an onslaught of free radicals. Boo, we say.

And it’s not just protective! It’s also strengthening and healing. So no matter where you are on your skin journey, Vitamin E can play a part to get you to where you want it to be.

vitamin c

Vitamin C plays a critical role in collagen synthesis, so if you’re looking at old baby photos of yourself and wondering why you don’t look like that anymore: it’s because babies get all that sweet, juicy collagen and us oldies don’t!

In fact, our collagen production levels start falling off a cliff after we turn 25. Very unfair.

But there’s ways around this! If you want to learn more about the connection between Vitamin C and Collagen, check out our vegan collagen gummies post.

Basically, you can think of Glow Sweet Glow as a mini-vegan collagen booster! Oftentimes, gummies are touted as “vegan” collagen gummies and this is something of a misnomer. Collagen is never vegan. Or even vegetarian!

We break it down in our Collagen 101 blog, if you’re considering taking the plunge.

amla fruit

We’ve often wondered why Hair Sweet Hair has been our holy grail of hair supplements, when we’ve taken plenty of other Biotin-based Beauty gummies.

We kiiiind of suspect that it might have something to do with some of their other ingredients they pack in, ingredients we haven’t seen anywhere else, that we’re responding to so positively.

In Glow Sweet Glow, the magical addition that we’ve never heard of is Amla Fruit. It’s also known as “Indian Gooseberry”, and is considered an antioxidant superberry in its native India.

It’s a cornerstone of Ayurvedic medicine, and its unique qualities are well known in natural medicine. And it’s not just great for achieving dewy skin: amla fruit is traditionally used for a variety of supposed benefits from circulatory support to helping the body with any kind of oxidative stress!*

yes sweet yes

Now, at the end of the day, these may not be as effective as a gummy with Collagen Types 1 & 3 in terms of improving skin elasticity.

For example Olly’s Glowing Skin gummy is also a Hyaluronic Acid gummy, with the addition of animal-derived collagen.

But the big benefit of springing for the Glow Sweet Glow, however, is that they are vegan, non-GMO and sustainably sourced. And deliver a wild amount of legendary hydrators and skin protectors. Plus they’re super delicious. 

That top shelf quality pedigree is not always easy to find, and we’re grateful that HUM gummies are out there in the galaxy. You can’t put a price tag on that clean conscience!
