Description

Formulated with a powerful vitamin complex that helps protect against moisture loss, whilst exquisite purple orchid, noni and acai help defend against the early signs of skin ageing.
Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm delivered an incredible response during consumer tests after just 14 days!*
• Radiance Booster: 89% felt the product helped skin look more radiant & luminous instantly
• Moisturiser: 85% agreed the product helped smooth the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
• Primer: 91% stated the product helped provide a more even & brighter skin tone
Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm benefits:
• It won’t ball under your fingertips if you choose to apply foundation, unlike many optically improving products.
• It won’t sparkle under the light. There are no conspicuous luminising particles in our balm.
• It won’t leave the skin tacky, or overly dewy, which can be the tendency with products that deliver this kind of fresh, super-hydrated finish.

Gives luminosity to my skin

User Reviews

Strongest points
Easy to apply, has a nice scent. I have tried using as a light moisturiser on it's own and over the top of Pro Intense. My skin did look brighter after using.
I love Elemis products but I am not sure this has a real place in their collection.
Weakest points
A little expensive for the kind of results it gave
Summary
A nice to have additional product which does give some luminosity to the skin but a little expensive for the kind of results achieved. I don't feel it is a necessity though

Too niche for me

User Reviews

Excellent quality product
Weakest points
Expensive for the results.
Summary
I am a huge fan of Elemis and this is just as good quality as any other products I've used from them but I wont be buying this product, not because it doesn't work but because I can't justify using it as opposed to other products. The scent is nice as is the texture (if a little gritty feeling). Absorption is fine and frankly it's a very nice product. The impact is limited in terms of lightening and tightening the skin but it's still a nice moisturiser. Good but just not for me.
