This stuff is no joke. A few drops deliver that lit-from-within glow everyone wants come summer, but without big pieces of glitter or heavy shimmer that often make products look and feel too juvenile. It comes in two shades, Sheer Bronzed and Sheer Golden, both of which subtly illuminate skin while delivering a serious boost of antioxidants and hydration.
And when I say serious, I mean it—it’s formulated with hyaluronic acid’s more powerful relative, polyglutamic acid, which holds 4000 times more moisture than its own molecular weight. Not to mention it has blackberry extract, which is full of antioxidants that neutralize free radicals and defend against damage. (Side note: This ingredient gently exfoliates and leaves skin so smooth, too!) But arguably the best part is that over time, with regular use, these ingredients increase your skin’s own natural moisturization factor, which improves surface hydration and maintains elasticity. I’ve only been using Luminizing Glow Drops for a few weeks now, but the shade Sheer Golden has quickly become a staple in my routine. Before I get into both shades, below is a picture of my skin without anything else on so you can really see how the soft-focus, light-reflecting pigments give skin a natural, radiant glow.
