I am an Italian living abroad. I was born and raised in Napoli, Italy, but moved to the United States when I married my husband 15+ years ago. Currently, we live in New England (yeah, way too cold for me).

In 2012, when I started this blog, I did not intend to become a blogger. It just kinda happened that people started reading my product reviews and became curious about my thoughts on things. I am very grateful for the working opportunities that this blog has offered me, but this remains a passion project, not a full-time occupation. My education background is in Archeology and Art History of the Western World, which was my major in University. You could say I used to dig dirt for a living ;)

I am an advocate for beauty from the inside out. I believe that the better we take care of our inside (both physical & mental), the better we look on the outside. However, I also believe that products and treatments do work, which is why I am so passionate about making informed choices when selecting skincare and cosmetics.

I can be blunt in my product reviews. That is because I am not trying to waste anybody’s time or money. If you would like me to try your products, expect 100% honest feedback. I do not guarantee that products sent to me will be featured or reviewed on this blog. Email lilly@genuineglow.com if interested.

I currently do not have a posting schedule, so if you want to be notified when I publish a new post, you can subscribe via email by entering your email in the “stay in touch” box on the right side of this page, or you can follow me on Instagram.

A presto!
