Superdrug Natural High- Radiance Balm | Review
I have no idea why I even bought this. I hadn't heard anything about it before but for some reason when killing time in superdrug, I decided to throw this in my basket.
I have mentioned before how horribly dry my skin is. As a result, I am always looking for ways to make it look like my skin isn't a similar texture to dry, dry sand. So I was pleased to discover that this product gives my skin a really dewy finish which I am in love with.
What it says:
"Naturally high in...
Organic Olive Oil
Smoothes, softens and tones
A smoothing anti-inflammatory
Nourishes and tones to improve radiance
Contains light reflective particles to give an instant, illuminating lift to skin, leaving it soft, smooth and radiant"
I find that this works great on its own or under makeup. It gives a gorgeous dewy glow to the skin and leaves it feeling velvety and smooth. I generally use this as a primer-esque product. I find that it just makes me skin more glowing and 'shines through' my makeup.
I haven't seen any extra benefits to my skin, but I definitely think that the name 'Radiance Balm' is accurate. I'm not claiming that I look in the mirror and say "My, aren't you looking radiant today!" But I definitely look a little more radiant than my usual dull self..
It also has what I find to be a pleasant smell. It isn't overpowering and because I seem to be completely incompetent, I can't really describe it. But if you've tried any other products from the Superdrug Natural high range, it smells like they all do.
According to the packaging for an 'extra treat' you can apply this in a thick layer over your skin and leave it on. I'm afraid to say that I haven't actually tried this. I probably should have before reviewing it on here. But I am happy with the one use I have for it.. making my skin look glowy and turning me into a radiant person!
Would you want to try this product or do you get your dewiness in other ways? Or maybe you don't even like the dewy look, in which case, this probably isn't a product you want to start using (in fact, I apologise to you for having to read this post).
