This Multi-Use Glow Product Is Juicy Summer Skin in a Bottle

When our Adore Beauty Senior Makeup Buyer messaged me to say she'd found a new product I'd love, I kind of... left her on read.

I know, I'm a crap colleague (and beauty editor), but after almost a year of working from home and only interacting with people through my low quality computer camera, it takes a lot to get me excited about makeup right now.

The product in question? INIKA Organic Radiant Glow 30ml - a glowy primer that also happens to be certified organic, vegan and generally good for your skin and the planet.

So I tried it and THANK GOD because Meike was right. It was love at first drop. And not just because said primer delivers golden, juicy skin in less than 60 seconds, but also because this one product has roughly nine uses - and that's just what I've come up with so far.

Alright, alright. Enough chat, here's what you need to know about the new INIKA Organic Radiant Glow skin veil.

What is INIKA Organic Radiant Glow?

INIKA Organic Radiant GlowINIKA Organic Radiant Glow

INIKA Organic Radiant Glow 30ml is a primer, hydrating product and illuminator in one.

Oh, and the non-greasy formula has added skincare benefits with ingredients like aloe vera, argan oil and magnolia bark extract.

So, yeah, it's basically radiant, dewy summer skin in a bottle.

With the light, syrupy consistency of a hydrating serum and the warmth of a champagne liquid highlighter that's flattering on every skin tone, this luminous skin primer reflects light for a 'golden hour' glow, even when it's cloudy. Or raining.

And if it wasn't already enough of an over-achiever, the formula is certified organic, vegan, made from 100 per cent natural ingredients, cruelty-free, mineral oil-free, paraben-free and free of artificial fragrances.

How to Use INIKA Organic Radiant Glow.

Technically, this product reckons it's a three-in-one primer, hydrator and illuminator. But honestly, there are so many ways to use this one bottle.

If spontaneous travel was still a thing, it'd be the perfect product to chuck in your bag for a holiday because it ticks so many boxes while leaving plenty of room in your suitcase for other essentials... like the six pairs of shoes you always pack but never wear.

Here are just nine of the ways I've been using this one product so far. Because who doesn't love a good cost-per-use calculation to justify a purchase?

1. Worn on its own after serums and before sunscreen for a 'lit from within' glow on no makeup days. IMPORTANT: Never mix other base products like this one into your sunscreen to ensure you're getting the advertised SPF protection, but go for your life applying before or after.

2. Worn in place of foundation with minimal makeup when you need to get ready real quick. Exhibit A below.

When I'm in a rush or really can't be bothered applying foundation, I pop a generous few drops of this on top of my sunscreen before adding a tiny bit of concealer, blush and a slick of tinted lip balm. And don't forget to brush your brows! Sounds like a lot, but it's easy as.

3. Applied as a liquid highlighter on the cheekbones, nose and brow bone. And if you don't get a chronically sweaty upper lip like me, whack some on your Cupid's bow, too.

4. Applied underneath or mixed into foundation or tinted moisturiser like I did in the selfie below- would you check out this glow??!!

5. Pressed on top of your base for extra glow, without disrupting your foundation underneath.

6. Worn as an eyeshadow primer, on top of eyeshadow for added sparkle, on its own as a wash of colour over the lid, or applied in the inner corner of the eye to brighten weary eyes (amen).

7. Mixed into a liquid bronzer for a subtle wash of colour over the face that'll match your tan. My favourite product to mix with the INIKA Organic Radiant Glow 30ml is the Clarins SOS Primer 30ml in Bronze or Amber Pearls.

See? They're made for each other.

8. Buffed over the collarbone for a bit of something spesh on the décolletage.

9. Mixed into your body moisturiser before going out for some extra shimmer on your arms, legs, chest and dec.

10. Sorry, I tried really hard to come up with a 10th reason but alas, no dice.

Really, there's no right or wrong way to wear this glow product. Apply it sparingly with your fingers, buff it into the skin with a stippling brush, dab away with beauty blender or - my favourite - rub a few drops between your palms and go to town like it's a moisturiser.

And the best bit about this illuminating primer? The glow it gives is never too much.

No blinding beauty YouTuber frosting or hectic highlighter swatches (no judgement though, you do you!), just the natural radiance of a functioning human being who never forgets to wash their makeup off, eats enough green veggies, drinks 1.5 litres of water a day and submits their tax return on time.

Bless.
