Discovering glow-enhancing primers was a life-enhancing moment for yours truly. It was like magic watching my tired ol' skin come alive as I swiped and wiped Clarins Beauty Flash Balm on my skin. Since then I've never looked back, and if a primer doesn't glow.... it has to go! (Slight exaggeration...I use a glow-enhacing primer everwhere, and because I'm a bit extra I'll pat a pore-minimising primer on my cheeks/nose/between the brows...)
So what are the Top Rated glow-creating primers on Beauty Review? Take a look... and get ready to get glowing!
They say: A lightweight gel lotion formulated with special-effect silicones. Evens out skin redness and skin tone while adding radiance. Improves the laydown and application of foundation or powder.
You say: The primer feels rather silky I suppose a bit like silicone. It has a slight shimmer to it which adds a subtle luminescence to the skin without looking like you have rubbed glitter all over your face. It guides/absorbs into my skin well and it makes my make up look fantastic and last all day. BR Member - Emily-jane.
They say: CLARINS Beauty Flash Balm helps eliminate signs of fatigue in a flash! Instantly moisturizes, brightens and tightens facial contours so skin looks rested and relaxed.
You say: This is the best cream ever!! I have mature skin and have been using this product now for at least 5-10 years and it does exactly what it says it will do. It is perfect over your moisturiser and fantastic under makeup. Your skin glows and feels smooth and youthful. BR Member - Nearly-fifty.
They say: Enlighten your complexion with a light infusing primer. Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer is a unique liquid light formula that blends seamlessly into skin to boost its liveliness and luminosity. Texture is smoothed and toned for a natural-looking complexion.
You say: The light-infusing formula is lightweight and easy to apply (and you don't need much so the bottle will last a while), I love the pump (have I mentioned it's easy?) and it primes the skin beautifully. I wear it beneath my BB cream and it gives my skin a beautiful glow that, at age 47, I thought I'd lost forever. BR Member - AmandaD.
They say: Super-powered with potent botanicals; de-snoozes, de-stresses, moistens, freshens and boosts the look of dull, flat or tired-looking skin with a fully loaded vitamin zap and a mega dose of green tea. Brightens and clarifies with iridescent particles and antioxidants.
You say: This may be a bit pricey for a moisturiser, but it is definitely worth every penny. It is great for those minimal makeup days or when you don’t want to put any makeup on at all. It gives a gorgeous glow to skin and it personally makes me look awake and alive - very good for those early mornings. BR Member - alzeeee
