Erborian is one of those brands that I like more with every product I try. It started with the Bamboo Glow Dewy Effect Cream, which I used over the summer (and wrote about here). I find that glowing skin looks more youthful and whilst I try to achieve it through my skincare, sometimes it needs a little help and that's where these two Erbrorian products come into play.
First up is Glow Créme, which is a similar to MAC Strobe Cream but the finish is more subtle, which I personally prefer as I find that some products that offer a glow are too pearlescent and fake looking. This cream feels cooling and soothing on the skin and it can be used in a number of ways - on no makeup days to banish signs of fatigue and dullness, mixed with foundation or under foundation. Skin instantly looks fresher and it blurs pores and fine lines, which is something that most illuminating products don't do - sometimes, they exacerbate imperfections by highlighting them. It is ideal for dry skin as it has moisturising properties so if you have a matte foundation that you find a little drying, this glow creme will add some luminosity but also help it to feel more comfortable on the skin. Price starts at £16 and goes up to £37 depending on the tube size.
The next product is Copper Glow, which you may initially dismiss as just another bronzer but it is so much more. It's quite a small compact, although it has a mirror and applicator sponge inside so it's ideal for handbags. For me, I wouldn't call this a bronzer - this is a perfecting powder that happens to have a hint of bronze. It blurs pores, doesn't cling to any dry patches, adds some luminosity (but no glitter or sparkle) and a hint of bronze/warmth to the skin. On a good skin day, just this, some concealer and the glow créme would be ideal for a healthy, glowing skin look without any greasy or discoball effect. It actually reminds me a bit of the blur powder in the Becca Be a Light Face Palette, which I reviewed here except this one adds a hint of colour - it has similar blurring properties though. £34.
Have you tried either of these products? What do you use to mimic the effect of glowing skin? I'd love to hear!
