Glimpse does not smell like anything I am used to using. Why is it not more fragrant?
Glimpse does not contain any synthetic fragrances. Its aroma comes from the blend of BioActive X3 Complex and other botanical ingredients. Each ingredient is selected carefully for the specific purpose of nutritional benefit and supplementation to your skin, but at the same time produces a subtle, natural aroma that dissipates quickly.
Who is the NPA (Natural Product Association)?
The Natural Products Association certifies products that are formulated without ingredients suspected of human health risk. And, XanGo is proud to announce our NPA seal of acceptance for Glimpse, the first network marketing company to receive this honor. Our certification from the Natural Products Association is just one more way that XanGo is leading the industry. For more information about the NPA visit www.naturalproductsassoc.org.
What does the NPA certified symbol mean?
Simply put, the Natural Products Association Standard for Personal Care Products states that all personal care products labeled or branded “natural” must be made with at least 95% all-natural ingredients and contain only synthetic ingredients specifically allowed under this standard that do not have suspected human health risks.
This standard is a set of guidelines that dictates whether a product meets the association’s definition of “natural.” It encompasses all cosmetic personal care products regulated and defined by U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Based on evaluation of the other personal care standards around the globe the Natural Standard for Personal Care Products aims to clearly define what a “natural” personal care product is and what it is not, and to help consumers, manufacturers, suppliers, retailers and the industry at large clearly understand and identify those products meeting the association standard.
Why is Glimpse serum not NPA certified?
XanGo pledges to provide green, sustainable, and natural products that deliver results. We proudly stand behind each Glimpse formula and its safe, non-toxic ingredient list. Five of the six current products in the Glimpse Intuitive Skin Care meet NPA certification standards and carry this designation on our packaging; our serum does not currently qualify. It is important to understand that the serum is extremely safe, and does meet the very high standards set forth by both the Compact for Safe Cosmetics and EU regulations, as do other Glimpse products.
There are two requirements for NPA certification: (1) at least 95% of a product must contain all-natural plant based ingredients, and (2) synthetic ingredients included in a product’s formulation do not have suspected human health risks. The Glimpse serum qualifies under the second, perhaps most important requirement of not containing ingredients with suspected human health risks. It falls just short of qualifying for the 95% all-natural standard. Glucosamine is one of our active ingredients from a marine source instead of a plant source. And, the other active ingredient is Niacinimide, Vitamin B3. XanGo has pledged that once naturally derived forms of these two ingredients become available in a source that delivers results, XanGo will integrate them into our Glimpse serum. The current use of these ingredients is based on the fact that consumer’s number one demand is performance and results, and in the case of these two ingredients, we did not sacrifice either of these attributes to achieve the NPA certification.
Where is Glimpse manufactured?
XanGo does not disclose the manufacturer information for Glimpse Skin Care.

Is Glimpse Skin Care for women only?
No. Glimpse Skin Care is for both men and women who are conscious about their skin health.
How often do I use Glimpse products?
XanGo recommends a very simple 4-step regimen twice daily, morning and night.
I love Glimpse but wonder if there is a quick tip for applying all 4 steps?
Absolutely. This quick tip is for anyone and we call it our “Glimpse Cocktail”. First, cleanse face thoroughly with your choice of Glimpse cleanser, then mix in your hand 2 pumps of toner, 2 pumps of serum and 4 pumps of each moisturizer. Mix your “Glimpse Cocktail” together in palm and apply over face, neck and chest.
Which product should I use?
XanGo recommends using a full, 4-step system for optimal results. The system represents significant savings compared to purchasing individual products. Use System I for normal to dry skin if you have dry or mature skin. System II for normal to combination skin is designed for people with overactive skin. In addition, many people like to use a combination of both System I and System II (ex. Use System I at night to keep the skin well hydrated during the night time, and System II for daytime to keep the skin refreshed throughout the day).
My skin is very sensitive. Can I use Glimpse products?
Yes, Glimpse Skin Care is designed for sensitive skin. But people have different reactions to skin care products. Sometimes the products you have been using for months and years can cause a reaction when a new skin care system is introduced. If you are concerned that you may experience an adverse reaction, apply the product to the inside of your forearm prior to using it on your face, check for any signs of sensitivity.
Why am I experiencing flushing/redness when I use Glimpse for the first time?
Rather than producing a cosmetic effect—as is the case with many traditional skin care products containing synthetics, fillers, silicones and occlusive emollients—Glimpse formulas allow your skin to breathe, supporting an optimal state of wellbeing. Glimpse formulas are active, biologically alive compounds that you may actually feel on your skin the first time you use Glimpse—this can manifest itself in an initial flushing of the skin. Similar to the slight flushing in your skin after exercise, this is a positive effect. The flushing you may experience with Glimpse is its own form of exercise for your skin, delivering oxygen that brings results! If you experience flushing, it usually subsides. However, if you experience swelling or other adverse reaction, please discontinue use.
Why am I suddenly experiencing breakouts?
It is common with the introduction of any new skin care regimen to experience a mild detoxification. With Glimpse, the introduction of green and toxin-free skin care will be welcome and refreshing to your skin, since it has never experienced something so natural and luxurious. But even this change in regimen may cause a few blemishes as the skin and body purge pre-existing toxins. Because this detoxification purge is a temporary—and for many of us, necessary—step, it is important that you continue your Glimpse regimen. Our experience is that after a few weeks of consistent Glimpse usage, your skin will acclimate to its new regimen, revealing hydrated, smooth, radiant and healthy-looking skin—skin that is no longer absorbing harmful chemicals. For optimal results, be sure to remove all traces of cleanser and other impurities each time you cleanse your face.

I received my Glimpse products but they expire within 6 months. Why is XanGo sending the products with such a short expiration date?
The safety of XanGo products is our number one priority. As Glimpse was created based on advanced green chemistry with a natural and gentle preservative system, we carefully monitor product stability and safety—as we do with all XanGo products. To ensure complete consumer safety, we carefully evaluate and determine the appropriate expiration date on each batch of each product produced. While most XanGo products are intended for 30 day usage, we anticipate complete product consumption to be within three months of ordering. For this reason, we do not ship product if the expiration date is less than three months from the order date.
How can I find the expiration date of External Wellness products such as Glimpse or Juni?
If your product comes in a box, you can find the expiration date on the bottom of the box. The format is MM/YYYY. If your product does not come in a box, you can find the expiration date on the bottom of the package.
