I'm a big fan of Superdrugs Naturally Radiant range - I use the hot cloth cleanser and moisturiser. I normally stock up when it's on offer for £2.99 and I decided to give the radiance balm a go at that price.
The balm comes packaged in a 50ml tube. The hot cloth cleanser comes in a 150ml tube, so you get quite a lot of product in the tube. I wanted to keep this in my make up bag, but it's quite bulky and the packaging is quite cheap looking, so it won't be leaving the house.
The consistency is cream-like and the smell compliments the other products in the range. According to the packaging, the cream is supposed to 'awaken skins natural glow' and 'instantly illuminate'. When I tested this product on the back of my hand, I could see my hand looked smoother and moisturised, but it didn't seem to improve the appearance of my face hugely. There are also tiny specks of glitter in this, which are supposed to illuminate, but I just find it pointless as it looks like specks of glitter as opposed to an overall glow. It is a relatively small amount, so isn't overbearing.
I will use up the remaining product, but I won't be buying it again as the cleanser and moisturiser are enough for me and this product doesn't add anything to my skincare regime.
TIP - the naturally radiant range is often on offer, half price, so stock up when it is.
