According to the people at Elemis, their Pro-Radiance balm is to be used:
“AM and PM by gently applying onto clean skin and under eyes on dark circles. Upon application you will notice a translucent glow to the skin. To use as a mask, leave for 10-15 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water.”
Created to instantly brighten the skin’s appearance, this Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm 50ml from Elemis gives you noticeable results, fast. Formulated to tighten the skin for a smooth, even and dewy luminosity, this innovative balm smooth’s imperfections to give you an even, flawless complexion.
Working as a fantastic base for make-up, this Illuminating Flash Balm can be used as an overnight mask to help soften and smooth the skin’s surface.
— It won’t ball under your fingertips if you choose to apply foundation, unlike many optically improving products.
— It won’t sparkle under the light. There are no conspicuous luminising particles in this balm.
— It won’t leave the skin tacky, or overly dewy, which can be the tendency with products that deliver this kind of fresh, super-hydrated finish.
Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm in terms of consistency is pretty thick but instantly absorbed into the skin with a cooling sensation. Although thick it spreads really easily and a little goes a long way, my only criticism would be that Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm is quite strongly scented, not unpleasant by any means (floral scent) but I do prefer skincare products for my face to be unscented.
This Flash Balm has been designed to smooth, soothe and instantly hydrate the skin all of which it does, despite being a thicker balm like product it is not at all heavy on the skin and is a fairly light moisturiser which is great for the warmer weather or for oily skin types like my own.
Unlike other products that can be used as a primer, this does not even out the skin tone nor will it help disguise pores rather it gives a slight glow to the skin as well as a light barrier of moisture and providing a lovely canvas to apply make-up on top off. What I like about Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm is that it gives the skin a beautiful and trulynatural looking dewy finish without the need for shimmer or glitter particles.
I love this balm! I woke up to a brighter, fresher looking complexion after using this overnight. With this under make up I feel my skin looks healthy and glowing. My skin type means I need a light moisturiser during the day, and this does the job amazingly well. I am so happy to have this in my skincare stash!!
