I always get very excited when one of my favourite brands launches a new product, so when I heard about the new Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm from Elemis I knew I had to try it. It’s a very effective moisturiser and you can use after cleansing. But you might be wondering what makes it different from any other moisturiser? Well, as always with Elemis it’s the outstanding ingredients used in its formulations. This one contains purple orchid (very moisturising), acai (a punchy antioxidant), noni extract (promotes skin radiance and moisturises) and silk mica (to soften away imperfections) and it’s scented with neroli, bitter orange, bergamot and lemon (a very luxurious combination!) to enhance your mood on application. It feels very soft to the touch and adds an instant dewy feel to your skin, and although it’s not shiny it adds a vibrant glow to your complexion. It’s perfect to use as a daily moisturiser if you don’t wear foundation or as a make-up base, as it will provide a blank canvas for you to work on.
It’s available at selected John Lewis, Debenhams, and harvey Nichols stores and online at Timetospa.co.uk. Priced at £32.00 (50)ml.
