Tired of people not remembering you, yet don't want to make an impression by such obvious means as silly clothes, designer sunglasses or expensive hats ?

GlowCream(TM) is for you. Made with luciferin, the stuff that makes fireflies glow, GlowCream does more than just soften, moisturise or de-wrinkle - it brings a subtle glow to your face that makes others notice you, but without knowing *exactly* why. Somehow you'll just seem to stand out that little bit more than the crowd of non-glowing people around you.

Get remembered, get asked to the prom by that hot football player, and of course never get lost in the dark.

       Scientifically sound, provided you use the corresponding enzyme, luciferase, in your formula as well. It doesn't sound very subtle though. It may end up looking more martian than you expect.

       Not good if you're taking a date out to the cinema.

       Sounds good to me! But, are you sure a) you can't already get glowing creams? b) that stuff doesn't decompose in the air? c) that a phosphorescent is better than a flourescent agent?

       Are you okay? You look a little .. pale.

       Luciferin sounds like it could smell horribly. Have you tested your cream for its odor?   

       Also, maybe this is handy to make condoms from.   

       Anyways, it's an ok idea, certainly for young people. As you get older, I have noticed discreetness becomes more important. Do have a bun though.

       This might be great for expectant fathers!

       This would be great for actors going into auditions... In fact this cream would be flying off the shelves in LA.

       When I was a boy, my brothers and I would go out at night, catch the fireflys, and proceed to squish them when they were glowing and wipe the glow-juice on our face and hands. I like the cream in a jar idea much better.
