Boots No7 Skin Illuminator
Advantages: Nice for a natural look.
I went into Boots recently to originally buy a blusher brush as I had a £5 voucher to use on No 7 beauty products, but the assistant came over to me and asked if I wanted any help etc, so we chatted about some of the products and I was trying some of them from the testers, I really liked the look of this one and so I decided to buy this one instead of the brush, as I already had lots of brushes but I had not tried this illuminator so I thought I would give it a try as I really like this range of beauty products.
I do wear foundations but a lot of the time I just like my skin to breathe, and I like a natural look on my skin most of the time, I have been looking around for some time for something a little lighter for my skin that I could use to give a fine coverage, and so when I saw this I thought it would be perfect for my skin.
This illuminator comes in a tube, with a pull off cap, it has a brush at the end of the tube to apply it to the skin, the colour I have is the Pink as it suits my fair skin much better than the darker shade that was available in this range, when using it has to be turned on and off via the top, it is easy to turn but once used it has to be turned off again so it does not come out of the tube and onto the brush, any excess can be wipes on the back of the hand.
I just shake the tube and then brush it onto my face and it really covers the skin very well, I had to use it a couple of times to get used to it as I first applied too much but I just then blended it with my fingers, and it gave excellent coverage for my skin, after I used the couple of times I got the hang of it and have ever since, the brush has to be wiped gently after use to keep it clean, and the brush cannot be washed or rinsed but I have found the brush is nice and clean after I have wiped it and had no problems.
It is a pale liquid, it is a very good texture and it nice and soft, it is very gentle on the skin while applying it, it does not have any fragrance that I can smell, it feels nice and soft on my skin, it is also light and not at all too heavy, just how I like it, the brush feels really soft on the skin and does not scratch, the bristles are very fine.
It can be used under foundation or just onto the clean skin, it gives a lovely glow to my skin, it dries in no time and it has a lovely shimmer too, I have been using this for a few about a week and I really do love the way it sits on my skin, I have not had the need to top it up, but it is a very nice size for my make up bag, and I could easily fit it into a hand bag if I wanted to top up while outdoors.
I think this is nice for day wear or evening, I think it is just perfect for a nice radiant glow for any skin, since I have a pale skin, I decided the Pink colour would suit me much better and since I have blonde hair it looks much lighter for me, but the other colour available would suit darker hair or a darker skin and that colour is Peach.
It is priced at only £10.50 for a 30ml tube, it has to be squeezed from the tube gently to release the liquid and then it is just brushed onto the skin, simple as that, with no problems at all, I have found this does not dry my skin, I have dry sensitive skin and it is perfect for my skin type, it is a skin booster beauty liquid which I would definitely recommend for anyone to try.
I really do love this illuminator and I will certainly buy it again in the future and with a voucher it is saving me lots of money for a beauty product that I really am happy with and the results it give for my skin.
I give it 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review.
