4 Skincare Products Which Make Your Skin Glow

Even though I have an oilier skin type, I do like my skin to have a nice radiant (non oily) glow in the summer months. So I thought I'd talk about some new skincare bits I've been trying out recently which really do make your skin glow in ~that~ nice way and don't make me look like a sweaty, oily mess. 

The first product I've got to talk about because I've completely fallen in love with it is the Evolve Beauty Radiant Glow Mask* which smells like chocolate(!!). Evolve Beauty are an award winning, organic, vegan and cruelty-free brand and everything they make is handmade to ensure the freshness of the antioxidants in the natural oils, butters and extracts their products contain. They're also eco-friendly and I just love the concept behind the whole brand and I can't wait to try some more products from them after my results from their Radiant Glow Mask*. Anyway more about the mask - it's main ingredients are raw Cacao and Coconut and it's a kind of jelly-like consistency and it's also suitable for all skin types which I really like. It also contains clay to help to purify the skin and the coconut granules help to buff away any dead skin in a soothing, non abrasive way. The natural sugar extracts turn the mask into a milky consistency on contact with water so that it rinses away easily too. I've been leaving it on for about 10 minutes (it does recommend 5 minutes but it just smells and feels so nice!) and then I apply a bit of warm water and then rinse away. Sometimes I do have to go in with a warm flannel to remove any little granules but it's easy to remove and doesn't leave my skin red and irritated like some exfoliating masks do. It gives me such a nice glow after using it and my skin literally feels silky smooth too. I'm just so impressed and I will definitely be picking another one up when I run out. 


I received an unexpected PR package from Feel Unique a couple of weeks ago which was so surreal because I tend to buy quite a few of my go-to beauty products from Feel Unique. They kindly sent over the Lumene Instant Glow Fresh Skin Tint in the shade Universal Light* and I just thought it sounded perfect for the summer when you don't want to wear much makeup or want a "no makeup" makeup look. It's described as a skincare and makeup hybrid and I can definitely understand why. Lumene also claim that it hydrates and perfects the skin for a youthful and perfected second-skin look and I totally agree with that claim. The texture is like a gel, so I feel like it's a nice product for my oily skin type but also a drier skin type would appreciate the gel-like, moisturising texture too. It gives a slight tint which evens your skin out but it's not like a CC cream or anything like that so it won't cover spots unless they're fading. I do think it's something I'll be reaching for more when I'm having a better skin day and I have paired it up with a little bit of concealer in areas where it's needed, just to give me a bit more coverage and it worked well. Overall I think it is a lovely product for the warmer months or if you just want a bit of coverage. I've found that it lasts well on the skin throughout the day, doesn't cling to dry patches or sit weird on any bumps or spots on the skin and I just think it feels really comfortable and I like that it gives a nice healthy glow without going overboard.


Another glow inducing product which I've never heard of before is the Transformulas Flawless Photo Glow SPF 30+ Multi-Tasking Cream*. Why is it a multi-tasking cream you might ask? Well they claim it restores radiance whilst correcting imperfections as well has having a powerful SPF 30+. It also is packed full of antioxidants too! I've found this cream looks and feels nicer once it's settled a little into my skin. I feel like when I first apply it, it makes my skin look a bit too glowy for my liking but once it kind of settles into your skin a little after maybe 15 minutes or so, it looks really nice and gives a nice radiant glow like they claim. I haven't found it to help my skin by "correcting imperfections" like they claim but I haven't worn it every single day since I received it so maybe that's why. But overall it's a nice moisturising, glowy SPF which looks nice on it's own or under a natural summer makeup look. I'm also a big fan of the sleek-looking packaging too.

Lastly on the list is the Pixi On-The-Glow Multi Use Moisturiser Stick* which I'll admit I wasn't a big fan of until recently and I made that pretty clear in this blog post. However I've been trying to like it because I do think it's got potential to be a good product but it's because of my oily skin why I wasn't super keen on it. So I've been trying it out in different ways and I've found that it works well when I've gone in a bit too heavy with a powder and I want to give my skin a nice natural looking glow in certain areas and I've found that it's been working nicely for that. But I'll admit, I probably wouldn't pick it up again but at least I've found a way to use up the one I've got. I do think you have a dehydrated/dry skin type then you'll love this though.
