Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm £32.00 (*)

Elemis has been a brand I have known and loved since my college days. Seeing it develop over the years, bringing out better versions of existing products and newer products always excites me and I am always keen to try them all out. What I love most about Elemis is, the unique ranges they have within all their products, each collection targeting different skin types using natural active ingredients, but remaining very specific, so that it is not too complicated.


One particular range that I have tried and loved is the Pro-Radiance range. I am a avid fan of the Pro-Radiance Cleanser and Hand Cream, it was only going to be a matter of time before I test the Illuminating Flash Balm and I’m so glad I did it as soon as possible because it really is an amazing product. 


A new generation “hybrid moisturiser” formulated with a powerful vitamin complex that helps protect against moisture loss and help defend against early signs of ageing. It is a multi-purpose product that acts as a radiance booster, moisturiser and primer ensuring your skin is more radiant by smoothing out the fine lines and wrinkles and providing a more smooth and even base for make up. 

 Unlike most primers out there, the texture is creamy and extremely moisturising on my skin. Even though the title contains the word “illuminating”, there are no luminous particles at all, so your skin will not have that sparkly sheen that we all don’t like. Being of a balmy formula, you’d think your skin will be left over tacky, but in fact, my skin has never been so matte and my make up just glides on nicely and stays intact all day. The scent of this is incredible and that is the same with most Elemis products, I just love sniffing them all day long. 


Have you tried any Elemis products before?

    I did a review on this same product just the other day! It really is brilliant isn't it? I haven't tried any other Elemis products yet but I'm so in love with this flash balm that I'm sure I'll find myself splashing out on some others soon!

    I'm a big fan of this – I love it and use it all the time. In the Winter especially, it's great to use such a luxuriously hydrating product as your primer! x
