Hardly noticed the glow??
Summary
I am not sure if it was something I had on my skin or that there was no illuminating effects, but when I was given a make over a while ago, they had used this on my skin and my skin looked no different.
My skin did feel softer but I have to admit, my skin did not "Glow".
Could have been something they had used before, or on top to stop the effects?
I would recommend it though as it is a really good moisturiser though.

Texture Too Thick & Too Much Glow!

I had a small pot of this cream in with my multi-pack purchase and at first was quite excited about the illuminating properties as well as the deep miniaturisation. The cream comes in a pot package and is a medium to thick consistency with a slightly pink colour. I discovered immediately that this cream is highly concentrated so I over applied it first time around. You really do only need a pea size for the whole face so be careful not to overload. The cream has a very subtle rose fragrance. I noted that the cream does not absorb as quickly as I would like and it took a little extra work to apply it. Sadly the mica content which is designed to give a dewy brightened complexion is a little too heavy and it gave my face a sort of metallic sheen which on my olive skin just looked too obvious and falseOnce the cream has penetrated your skin feels beautifully soft and supple but I did have to wait a while to apply my makeup.
Sadly this cream is just too thick and heavy for my skin and I did not like the mica sheen it gives so I gave this pot to Mum who has a much lighter skin tone.
