Along with the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, the Botanics Radiance Balm is a 'top product of the moment' for me but I completely forgot to include it in my January favourites! If you feel your complexion is looking a little dull and could do with an extra boost, this offers radiant skin in a nice squeezy tube.
The Botanics All Bright Radiance Balm is designed to minimise visible signs of fatigue and stress, leaving the skin radiant and full of vitality. It's made with Hibiscus, known for it's brightening properties and also contains natural AHA's (alpha hydroxyl acids) which act as a gentle exfoliator.
I tend to apply this with my fingers, over the top of my moisturiser, before my BB cream or sometimes I'll mix a little with my BB cream and apply it with a brush instead. It offers a lovely pink-toned illuminating glow, which leaves the skin looking so radiant and beautiful. Applying the Radiance Balm has become an important step in my skincare / makeup routine as I feel it makes such a difference to my overall appearance.
Reviews on the Boots website compare this balm to the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm and MAC Strobe Cream. Whilst I haven't tried the other products myself, it's great to know that a £5.99 product compares well to the likes of these much more expensive brands!
If you're interested in giving the Botanics All Bright Radiance Balm a go yourself, it's currently part of Boots' 3-for-2 skincare offer. A little goes a long way, so it's a product you'll really get your money's worth from.
