No7 Skin Illuminator Review
No7 has such a wide range of products it can sometimes be difficult to know where to start! I came across the No7 Skin Illuminator when I was actually looking for a glowy BB cream. And while this doesn’t provide coverage, it does give such a beautiful glowy sheen to the skin and I have fallen in love with it!
Multi-faceted light reflectors instantly enhance your complexion, for a natural looking radiance.
And that’s it. It literally does what it says on the tin (or tube in this case). I think that what I love so much about this is just how natural it is. If you’re looking for a blinding highlight then this probably isn’t the product for you, but it gives a radiant glowy finish to the skin that is so addictive! I use it under a BB cream, as I think putting a full coverage foundation over the top would just cover up the gorgeous finish of this and would be a bit pointless! As I mentioned earlier this product doesn’t provide any coverage, but it makes skin look so healthy I end up trying to cover up as little as possible! A thin layer over the top of a moisturiser on “no makeup” days is spot on.
The No7 Skin Illuminator comes in 2 shades. I have the shade Nude and it is absolutely perfect. They also have a Bronze shade which I am desperate to try out as I think it will be beautiful for Summer.
The packaging is great, and I love the simple design of No7 products – keeping it looking classic and elegant. The 30ml tube will last ages, as a pea sized amount (a small pea – think “petit-pois”) literally covers the whole face. Priced at £12.50 this can seem on the expensive side compared to other brands with primer style products, but the No7 Skin Illuminator is completely different to any product I have used.
So even though my first encounter with this product was on a search for something different, I am SO glad I found it! A wonderful happy accident – some things are just meant to be!
