Illumination

I was going through my bag of free samples from Sephora the other day and came across a gift pack from Tarte Cosmetics (if you’re not a VIB member at Sephora, you must do it). In it was their Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Illuminating Serum. Perfect-just what I need! This time of year skin starts to get a little dull and dry, so it’s always good to find a great skin brightener. I decided to give it a try and am so glad I did!
I’ve been mixing it in with my Dr. Jart’s Beauty Balm (dollop of each in my palm, mix to perfection). I find I need less of the beauty balm and that the concoction spreads very easily over my face. It gives me just the right amount of glow (sometimes illuminators can make you look shiny instead of glowing) and it’s actually really good for your skin. It’s packed full of vitamins and tea extract which moisturize and replenish skin. The healing Amazonian clay keeps oily skin in check and neutralizes skin imperfections. All you’re left with is radiant skin, and who doesn’t love that!?!?

A more affordable version would be Revlon Age Defying Spa Face Illuminator. It has SPF 8 and can be worn with makeup or alone.
