    Natural glow is best, dry skin is unattractive.

    I’m a huge fan of the Clarins Beauty Flash balm – there was a time when it was the only radiance boosting product out there, but I have to say it’s got some stiff competition nowadays! I’m testing the Ponds Gold range at the moment and the serum is great. It’s not a cover but does add radiance to the skin with little flecks of gold. And the price is not too hectic.

    I have the MAC Strobe Cream, and I’ll either wear it under my foundation, mix a few drops into my foundation before applying, or just use it as a highlighting cream.

    There are many cheaper options for a natural glow. Yardley has a great highlighter.

    Hi Firefly, The Body Shop has a lovely illuminating primer which you could use beneath your foundation for a natural glow. Alternatively you could mix some shimmer lotion into your face moisturiser.

    I have never tried any of these… They are quite pricey.. Any recommendations for something a little more affordable?

    Clarins Beauty Flash Balm is fabulous, but I need to get my hands on the Ponds Gold Radiance Serum (hmmmmmm)!

    My go to product from this lot is Clarins Beauty Flash Balm. I’m not a fan of the scent but it fades quite soon after application. It does a great job at making my skin took tighter and dewy if I’ve lacked beauty sleep. I’m one of those unlucky girls that have sad skin when not getting enough hours of shut eye.

    I agree, maybe for more younger skin but I am a bit of a Clarins fan so I might want to try that.

    The Clarins Beauty Flash Balm is my go to product when I haven’t had enough rest and my skin needs to be refreshed. The scent is a bit strong initially but the pay off is great.

    I have been in hot pursuit of this trend and never quite knew which products to use to achieve that natural healthy glow that’s so popular right now. Thanks for this! :-)

    I heard that the trends for 2013 will be natural make up. Finally, I can be lazy (by not slathering make up on my face) and still look trendy :) Thank you for the options above!
