miracle product

Dee

I use this everyday and it makes me feel ten years younger. I used to use it on its own and that works well but as I lightened my hair, I felt I needed to wear make up so Now I mix it with foundation and it is still serving me well.

Most Helpful Criticism

Not effective on me

YXM

I have combination skin that was a little tired to due long hours, and purchased this product based on the positive reviews. I found it too drying under makeup and so have been using as a mask. I find it irritates my skin and I don't get result I'm after like I do with a particular product from Japan.

  2. Gives a lovely glow

    Rissa

    This balm is great! I usually use on makeup free days on top of a light moisturiser and it gives the skin a beautiful dewy finish! It also works as a primer in a pinch, although there are other primers out there that make your makeup last longer and look fresher. I had my mum try it on too and her skin looked instantly better! I highly recommend this product. Clarins is a fantastic brand!
  3. The perfect primer

    Ed

    This is my favourite primer to use under make up, which was recommended to me by some friends who always have flawless looking make up. Makes my skin look smooth and maintains my make up for the entire day!
  4. great all rounder

    Vanessa

    Love this balm as a mix for my foundation. Really brightens the skin. My favourite moisturiser by far.
  5. Tightens and brightens

    Minka

    I was really surprised at how well this product works. I makes my face look brighter & tighter, which I love! It also works as a primer. It's quite pricey so I only use it for special occasions.
  6. An all time favourite!

    Jess

    I’ve purchased this in the past, and forgot how much I loved it, it’s such a great all round product and really handy as I travel a lot. So I can use as a mask or primer and it rehydrates my skin especially after flights. Plus, it’s kind of the OG primer.. I’ll keep purchasing!
  7. Leaves skin looking glowy

    DPom

    So nice. Leaves your skin looking dewy & glowing. Nice product to use when you want a no makeup day!
  8. good in-betweener

    Alison

    Love this product for a quick and easy morning routine, but as a moisturiser it's not as nourishing / hydrating as some other products, and as a primer it's also not as good as some other primers, but if you just want to slap something on quickly rather than use a 2 step it's a good bet! It's beautifully scented but I prefer a non-scented product so not sure its right for me.
  9. Love this little beauty

    Amelia

    I first started using Clarins in my late teens and I've been a fan ever since. They have good, classic products that deliver the goods. This product is no exception - always have to give my skin a 'pep up' and doubles as a perfect primer for makeup. I also love to layer it on thicker in the evening to give my skin a dose of hydration and glow. Only issue I've ever found is if I get a little over excited and use too much (under makeup) it will ball up/flake off my skin so only use a small amount!
  10. Best primer

    Amy

    I was given a sample of this product and will definitely be buying it. It is by far the most effective primer I've used. It really allows your makeup to set in nicely, giving you a nice glow. This primer just makes your overall makeup look more natural and flawless.
  11. Such a classic!

    Lara

    I remember my mum using this!! It is such a classic product that is so reliable and smells and feels great on skin. Definitely do think there are better primers that will make your make up sit and last longer
  12. A classic product

    sue

    Ive used this Beauty Flash Balm for many years now, always keep some in my makeup kit, as its a beautiful creamy mask that feels and smells wonderful, deeply moisturises and leaves skin dewy. Highly recommended!
  13. Holy Grail

    R

    This is actually my fav product from Clarins. It's a beautiful primer underneath makeup. It helps to brighten my skin and makes me look less fatigue.
  14. Not for me

    Sarah

    I bought this due to all the great reviews as something to wear on no makeup days. I was hoping for it to give me a bit of a glow and even my skin but unfortunately I didn’t see much difference. I really wanted to love this product as I’ve used others from Clarins and loved them but I just don’t think this product is for me.
  15. Old classic

    Alicia

    This balm has the ability to calm your skin and give you s glow. It’s a thick lotion kind of substance, has a little fragrance but not overpowering at all. I don’t use it everyday but just when I need a boost. Although I could buy a big tub and use all over!!!
  16. it does what it says

    jixa

    After reading reviews i bought this one and it worked wonders on skin..what a instant glow it gives..due to long working hours i need something to give me instant glow and this is what gives me the glow i need..mostly i use it as a mask but it works as a primer too..really good product highly recommended.
  17. Non-primer primer

    Talia

    This is such a beautiful product for adding glow and life to your skin when you're tired or a bit dehydrated. Pat this onto your skin, leave for a minute, then a little foundation over the top and your skin should have a nice soft luminosity. It's also nice on its own for a dewy finish.

  19. Instant Glow

    Iqra

    If u are after instant glow..this is the one u need..2 in 1 property this one has u can use it as mask n a base too for makeup..i have used in both ways and it worked well for me..leaves your skin glowing n supple soft.holy grail.
  20. must have

    aron

    This is awesome, it has so many uses!
    A daily brightening moisturiser or a daily primer! or even mix with my foundation to create a more dewy look.
    It has so many uses, it is very versatile and. must have in my make up bag.
  21. great!

    lily

    This is a great base for makeup, or works just to brighten skin. I love all the ingredients that help my skin glow, just wish it was more suitable for oily skin
  22. Great

    Phoebe

    This remains one of the all time great Clarins products. It feels great on my skin, hydrates well and is a perfect base for my makeup. I would highly recommend this product.
  23. great corrector

    Abbie

    Probably the best clarins product!!!!
    I use it as a primer and it is great, it has a brightening affect and its not too light or heavy its the perfect consistency.
    It gives my skin a brighter complexion and more even skin tone. I have oily skin and I use this and it is not too oily at all it just glides on.
  24. Not for me!

    Irene

    There are a lot of great reviews for this but it just wasn't for me, no matter how hard I tried to like it. I tried patting it on but right when I put my make up on, it starts to ball up. I eventually used it as a face mask to finish the tube but it didn't do anything for my skin as I didn't notice any difference at all.
  25. Surprising free sample

    Emily

    I received a sample size of this product as a part of the Clarins promo. It smells divine and has definitely improved the texture of my skin. I will agree with other reviews that say it does have a tendency to flake if layered with other products, but this isn't really an issue for me as I seldom wear makeup. I will be purchasing this again.
  26. luxury

    Maddy

    A little bit of luxury. My skin feels fantastic when I use this. It illuminates the face and helps make up stay on longer. I find if you pat it into your skin, rather than rub it just smooths your skin out and makes a perfect base. No need for primer with this. You can also mix it with liquid foundation or bb cream. This is especially good in winter too. What a great product.
  27. Best primer

    Madeleine

    Amazing primer sets my makeup perfectly. I actually cant live without it and refuse to try anything else. Its very hydrating as well without making me oily.
  28. Long time fan

    Lynette

    This is one of the first skincare products I started using more than 20 years ago. I generally use it as a primer. I love the texture and fragrance. It is a bit sticky but once you apply make up I feel the result is perfect for me. I've also used Dermalogica and Jane Iredale Primers over the years but Clarins BFBis still my fav
  29. Not as effective as I'd hoped

    Danielle

    I have been using the Beauty Flash Balm for a little while now and pop it on after moisturising and before make up application. I find it does have some brightening effects, but these are not particularly pronounced - they're only subtle and certainly not as much as I'd expect from a product like this. I'm not sure I'd purchase this (I was using this as a gift) in the future considering that the results weren't as good as expected. Others may have more luck with it but for a fair complexion it didn't do a great deal for me.
  30. Flakes once make up applied

    rebecca

    This cult product is so overhyped. I love the smell but I find this comes out in little flakes after I use my foundation. I tried different foundations to no avail. I have pale combination dry skin and this doesn’t work for me.
  31. New must-have

    Kirsty

    I'm a bit late to the Beauty Flash Balm party at 44 years of age, wondering how I lived without it! Best primer, with lovely moisturisation and firming action. I wear it every day under makeup, and it still looks fresh at the end of a long day. Great consistency, and lovely fresh smell.
  32. Like

    Zhaowei

    I have tried a lot of primers over the years, and this is one of the few that both hydrates my dry skin whilst also making my makeup last. It seems like with others you either get one of the other.
  33. Great primer

    Abbie

    I use the beauty flash balm as a primer under my foundation and it works great. I have oily skin that looks very dull and this balm brightened my complexion and gives me a smooth base for my foundation without making my look oily or disrupting my make up. It smells great and goes on very easily, it has a great balmy consistency.
  34. Party pick-me-up

    M

    I first started using this about 14 years ago, it's an excellent pick me up and I used it after cleansing and toner / essence but just before moisturiser and sunscreen. Helps brighten my complexion when feeling dull and tired, smells great and you only need a pearl sized amount each time. I haven't repurchased as I really only use it in 'emergencies' as opposed to being part of my daily routine but would not hesitate to recommend.
  35. Perfectly Blurs my complexion

    Janelle

    I just love using the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm under my foundation whenever I feel like I need extra help to smooth and brighten my complexion. I add a small amount to my foundation on my fingertips and blend evenly across my face. This product really helps to blur and even out my skin tone. I will definitely repurchase and can highly recommend.
  36. It's a reliable product

    Tennille

    Beauty Flash balm does what it says and it is good if your skin needs a pick-me-up
  37. Excellent primer

    Doreen

    I’ve been using this as a primer for about 6 months and I’ve found it’s one of the only products that leaves my makeup looking fresh at the end of an evening. A bonus is that my skin looks and feels so soft when I remove my makeup. The key is to not rub it in too much. I apply it by dotting it on my cheeks, forehead, undereyes and chin and then I smooth it out until my skin becomes tacky and then I immediately apply my foundation. It makes the skin look extra glowy and makeup stays put! Will definitely be repurchasing!

    Note: I have an oily skin type .
  38. Still amazing

    Emma

    This is one of the first beauty products I ever owned, and more than 15 years later it's still fabulous. It plumps up my skin, makes it glowy and dewy and gives that wow factor. I used to use it on it's own, now i struggle with more redness than I used to so I need at least some powder on top and it works beautifully under minerals. 5*.
  39. Leaves skin looking beautiful

    Shan

    I really wish this was more affordable because it makes my skin glow and look absolutely amazing. I agree with the other reviewers here, this is better used as skincare rather than a primer under makeup. And the way it plumps up my skin and leaves it glowing, i wouldnt want to cover it with makeup
  40. Love it.

    Robyn

    There is a reason this has become such an iconic product. It does brighten and tighten and is so luxurious. A beautiful product that makes my sensitive skin feel amazing.
  41. Very good product

    Anita

    I tend to use this at night as face mask that can washes off in the morning. You can use under makeup but I find it better suited as a mask. Awesome product overall.
  42. Pleasantly Surprised

    Michelle

    As someone with combination/oily/sensitive skin, this type of product is something I would usually avoid. I received a sample of it and decided to give it a try.

    As I applied it for the first time, I was still skeptical as it feels quite sticky and thick. I left it to absorb and was wonderfully surprised by how nice it felt on my skin. I didn't get the slick mess that I was expecting, and my face just felt so nourished all day. I have now used it under mineral makeup as well and it sets perfectly.

    A little bit goes a long way, and I will definitely be purchasing again.
  43. Magic

    Siani

    This is one of those holy grail products - it brightens, tightens and firms, smoothes and make up stays on longer and goes on easier. I absolutely love it. I should use it everyday really! Its worth the price. I have combination skin - dry with an oily t zone and use this as a primer before make up and a mattifying powder and have no issues with oiliness.
  44. Hard to describe but it IS kinda magic

    Kellee

    I go through phases of not using this but whenever I come back to it, I always think to myself 'I should use this every day.' I don't know how it works but my skin looks brighter, smoother, and at the end of the day I look less tired. Make seems to stay fresher throughout the day. I was very hesitant to repurchase but ultimately I do like this product and appreciate having it in my arsenal of makeup.
  45. Amazing

    Eleanor

    Brightens and tightens as it promises, I definitely get more compliments on my skin the days that I wear it! Works well on its own (under moisturiser and sunscreen) or under my Clarins BB cream or tinted moisturiser. Love it!
  46. I love it!!

    Ashley

    This is honestly one of my favorite skin care products I have ever purchased! It is so versatile! I have rather dry to sensitive skin which isn't problematic except a few pimples here and there. I use this product as a primer mostly and it gives me the most stunning dewy skin when I put foundation on just after I've applied it to my face. I'll even use it as a face mask on .myself or on my boyfriend who has rather oil and black head prone skin and it works on both of us! Using it as a mask makes both our skin radiant and soft. I love this product! and will continue to purchase it in the future!
  47. Cabin crew must have

    janette

    This is my go to when I fly.
    I use it as a mask as a primer and as a glow booster.
    Use it before bed for a pick me up or when u wake up ur glowing this cult product stands the test of time for a reason.
  48. Didn't deliver

    Rebecca

    I tried this product a while back and it just completely failed to impress me. I'm not even completely sure what it's supposed to do exactly?! I don't think it really makes a lot of impact as a primer and a beautician friend of mine said to add more product and leave it on as an overnight mask, but even then...I didn't see massive results. Maybe it's my skin type - I'm oil-prone - or perhaps it just isn't the right match for me. Whatever the case, I can't recommend it and didn't see the same results as the very positive reviewers here.
  49. Bloody fantastic primer!

    Lucy

    I use this as a primer and holy moly it’s awesome! I can use it with any foundation or concealer and it looks so pretty! I have oily and acne prone skin and it doesn’t cause any flare ups or breakouts or make me look oily! I also just wear it over my skincare on no makeup days after applying spf!
  50. Holy cow

    Sophie

    I'm with the lovers on this one. While dubious about the miracle claims, and having been burned by primers before, the reviews on this product won me over, or lulled me into a little product-buying trance, or something. incredibly, I wasn't disappointed. After watching a few tutorials I used a pea sized amount to prime my face before immediately applying my lightweight foundation and baby I was instantly GLOWING! Amazing. It really does do something like blur all the imperfections to make you look kind of supernatural or airbrushed.. but in the flesh. Also lasts all evening long. Apparently you shouldn't use it too often so I've been saving it for when I want to look like a total babe - usually date night with my man. My only criticism is that it does have quite a strong fragrance - this dissipates over time but is quite noticeable when freshly applied.
  51. Cult classic

    Emily

    This product has stood the test of time and for good reason. Recommended to me by my mum, I either wear it as a glowy moisturiser or in with foundation to give a fresh natural glow
  52. Didn't notice a difference?

    coco

    I apply this cream as per instructions, but didn't notice a significant change in my complexion. perhaps suited to more youthful skin types? disappointed as it was quite expensive. also smelled like the inside of a old lady's purse, which didn't help much.
  53. Quick pick me up

    Dora

    An amazing product in that it can be used as a brightening mask or a primer . I mostly use it as an everyday primer and it’s wonderful . Seems to immediately have a brightenening effect and my foundation glides on beautifully . A little goes a long way so well worth it . My skin is normal to sometimes dry in cold months
  54. My beauty bag staple

    girlbythewindow

    I've been recommended this since i was in uni by a classmate and I've been hooked since then. Its an amazing makeup base, makes my skin dewy. Also an amazing moisturizer on long flights.
  55. Feels very nice

    Ann

    I’m not sure I agree with the utter hype of this product, but it is good. I feel as if it’s great to dab on my cheeks before applying foundation as it makes the foundation go on beautifully and look nice and hydrated.

    I’m prone to break outs but this hasn’t caused any break outs as yet.
  56. No make up look

    sarah

    This product is great for days when you don't want to wear make up. It gives the skin a nice healthy glow ready to take on the day.
  57. multipurpose wonder

    lucy

    I have found that this balm is perfect for so many uses. My skin feels smoother and more hydrated almost instantly, which I have not found with another product. Although it is expensive, it is worth it in my opinion.
  58. Really great for low maintenance days

    Kellee

    This is my go to for days I dont want to wear a full foundation. It makes my skin look plump and hydrated while just help to even out and perfect the color slightly. It is such a classic
  59. An old favourite

    Caitlin

    I used to use this product religiously YEARS ago, but had then moved onto other products in the intervening decade or so... However, I recently rediscovered Beauty Flash Balm and remember now why I always loved it so much - it really is a fabulous "pick me up" for my skin whenever I need to give it some extra plumpness or moisture, and can be used either under make-up as a kind of moisturising primer, or on its own as a mask. It is not astringent and harsh, and has the same fabulous formula that it has always had. So glad I've rediscovered this product and it's still working its magic on my skin (which is now more than 10 years older!). I'll be sticking with the Beauty Flash Balm for a while again now!
  60. Fantastic

    Kristian

    Makes my skin feel brighter and less tired, also makes a great primer. Will always have this in my routine. Love
  61. A great product!

    Watto

    You will notice visible results after using this every time. It brightens and tightens my skin and gives a more youthful appearance - a skin savior when you need a little extra help!
  62. Great product.

    Tarliha

    Can wear as primer under foundation or alone. Will be re purchasing.
  63. Great with or without makeup!

    E

    can be used as a primer or on its own to make you look more awake. makes your skin feel nice and soft!
  64. A great pick me up

    Christy

    This product is perfect for those days when you need to look brighter and fresher. It tightens my skin and minimizes the look of pores. Perfect under foundation!
  65. Amazing!

    S

    Great product, i use this under makeup as a primer and also on my makeup-free days as i feel like it makes me look a little more "alive" and fresh
  66. Great makeup primer

    Nicola

    Love this brightens my skin, tightens my pores. There is a very good reason this is a beauty staple for many.
  67. Great as a primer

    Jaymes

    This is great as primer. I've used it a few days only but so far love it. Feels so light to use and makeup sits perfectly over.
  68. Cannot live without this

    Happy Customer

    I have used this every day since I bought it a month ago, even on my pyjama days! It makes my face look so much fresher than it ought to, and the finish is perfect for under makeup. I apply my moisturisers first, then the beauty flash balm, and then my liquid foundation.
  69. In love already!

    kathryn

    Only been using for a few days and I already love it! Leaves my face feeling so fresh! Perfect primer for my liquid foundation. I was using another popular primer but wasn’t seeing good results after applying the foundation. So glad I read all these positive reviews on this miracle balm to convince me to purchase! Will be buying again!!
  70. Been using for over 20 years.

    Esther

    I’ve used this product for over 25 years.
    I’m turning 50 this year and look in my late thirties, whether it’s my DNA... I know that Beauty Flash is the only mask I’ve ever used...only now I’m trying other masks but I see no difference because I really need nothing other than beauty flash.
  71. Been using this for 15 years

    girlbythewindow

    I was introduced to this back in high school by a girlfriend who still uses this! I always come back to this for my under foundation cream. Its the thing to use on the plane, and it makes my complexion much better and very dewy. Its the ultimate moisturizer for a long time to come.
  72. Second purchase

    Gabrielle

    I first bought this product to use on a long plane journey. It was a success, and now, in need of some glow for my sensitive, older skin, I remembered how lovely this product was. Definitely worth the cost, and the luxury of Clarins products is lovely. Of course I also appreciate a multi purpose cream.
  73. Absolute must have

    Amy

    If I was stranded on a desert island and could only have one thing...At least I'd die pretty. This cream just makes you look better. I can't even pinpoint what it is, but I can tell the difference when I dont use it before applying my make up.
  74. A must have!

    ANNE-MARIE

    Clarins Beauty Flash Balm is a must have that makes my skin feel more awake and "glowy". Perfect if you are traveling and need a little pick me up, or as a base to makeup. Would definitely recommend.
  75. Game changer

    Sarah (Adore Beauty Staff)

    I'd used this months ago but it'd been stuck at the back of my draw. After Whining about the state of my foundation mid way through the day, I decided to pull out my trusty BFB.

    Wow this product makes all the difference! Why did i ever stop using it?!
  76. Must-have

    Joanna (Adore Beauty Staff)

    I'm not surprised that this product is so popular. I didn't really understand what it was when I first got it - is it a primer, is it a moisturiser? I still don't even know, but the best way I can describe it is 'skin refiner'. I feel like it airbrushes my skin and provides a great base for makeup while keeping the skin feeling hydrated and comfortable. I love wearing this product when I'm not wearing any makeup at all, because I find it evens out any slight redness or unevenness in my skin.
  77. #1 best pick me up face moisturiser

    Kerryoh

    I've been using this product ever since I can remember and my skin always looks fabulous. I use it every morning to give my skin a quick pick me up
  78. A great picke me up for the face

    Jules

    This balm works really well to give my face a more awake, fresh and healthy look when I'm feeling a bit flat and feeling as though my skin is looking a bit dull.
    I use it more so under my make up in the thin layer than I do as the short 10min wash off treatment. A clever product that I'm sure I will buy again.
  79. one of my must have product for my make up routine

    DH

    I have a sensitive and prone to breakouts skin. I hesitated to go for it at the first time since it contains fragrance, but am glad i went for it, not only it helps to brighten my skin, its actually helps to calm my breakout down. It works wonder!
  80. The contradiction of glowing and calming

    Gab

    I loved this product. It adds glow to my ageing skin, at the same time as it calms the redness. I will definitely buy it again. I think it deserves its reputation.
  81. THE primer - full stop!

    YlangYlangLover

    While I disagree about the 'radiance' Clarins Beauty Flash Balm emits, I can certainly vouch for its quality as a primer.

    For 5+ years I have used this over light sunscreen and under foundation, and I've never felt the need to change. Three reasons:

    1. The biggest 'pro' is that it protects my skin from any chemicals in my beauty products (even mineral products) and everyday pollution. It's like a protective layer for my skin. I really believe it has reduced the number of breakouts in my pre-primer days.

    2, It helps my foundation glide onto my skin. I use mineral powder foundation and Clarins Beauty Flash Balm leaves my skin well primed i.e. it's not sticky or too dry, making it ideal for even foundation coverage.

    3. It works great with a range of sunscreens and foundations. I have used a gamet of different products and, unlike a silicon-based primer I used, Clarins Beauty Flash Balm doesn't get 'claggy' or streak or dry up my skin. It is hydrating and wonderful!

    I have also used it as a mask like Clarins says you can, but have not found it to be anything special (there are better masks out there).
  82. Outstanding

    Terri

    Beauty Flash Balm really does exactly what it says it will. It gives you this beautiful radiance without even trying!
    I have been told that you can see more results when used as a mask, and I can't wait to give it a go!
  83. Best primer ever!

    DanielleforDollface

    This product is amazing, I love the way it preps my skin for makeup, It makes me use less foundation and makes my foundation last longer.
  84. Blank

    janaya

    I LOVE this product as a primer under foundation. Without it, my foundation looks chalky and my skin seems to lack that glow that it has when I use beauty flash balm underneath. I put on the balm and then the foundation on literally straight after while the skin is still damp. It is an amazing product, if you haven't tried it- do!
  85. Blank

    Anonymous

    Purchased this product to give my skin a bit of a boost and overall I am happy with it. I find it does it's best job under my makeup, as a primer. When I wear it without makeup my skin does look alot better but nothing too dramatic. Like the texture - it can feel a little think on your hands, but gets absorbed pretty well. I also love the scent for some reason. Its a strange scent, but somehow satisfying to wear.

    I just love this product. It gives a nice healthy glow even when I am not using a foundation. This is going to be a staple product in my beauty bag!

    I note that many of the reviews are by users who are young! I'm in mid 60's and find this product wonderful for a mature skin also. Definitely brightens and gives my skin a glow, particularly for a special occasion or if I'm feeling a bit off-colour. Highly recommend.

    Love Love Love! Just adore this product thrown into my routine from time to time. No matter what brands I am using in skincare and makeup I always have this in my makeup bag. I love throwing it on as a mask before (or after) a big night. When my skins feeling a bit blah! its the perfect pick me up! I massage it in as my night time treatment sometimes. and of course as its was designed as a primer under makeup. Lasts for ages. You only need such a small amount as a primer. Only wish it came in a bigger size!! Love the smell and consistency too. I have combo skin and have no problems with this product. I HEART BFB!!

    I have heard rave reviews on Clarins Beauty Flash Balm for quite some time now and after two year, I decided to take the plunge. It is not particularly a balm, as the name suggests, but rather a lotion. It smells nice, feels good on my skin (it does not react badly), and it leaves my skin glowing and looking fresh. Wearing it underneath my foundation and alone, I have received compliments on my skin and have been told I look healthier and fresh. I enjoy wearing it on makeup-free days, where I simply wear this alone or with SPF. The packaging is handy too - it comes in a tube so it is hygienic and good to pack with you when travelling. I can't say that I rave about this product but I am happy with the results, I like the idea of the product and what it is designed to do, and I would most likely purchase again in future.

    The 'flash' effect comes from the slight pinky colour and dew, glow or slight shine from the creamy emollient consistency. It made a difference but nothing too great - I dont want to glow or shine all over I like having contours. Maybe better applied only in certain areas? And I havent tried it over makeup/tinted moisturiser - maybe it works better then? Otherwise just unnecessary.

    This is a product that has always facinated me so I was delighted to be given a sample of it. I'd read that it was supposed to give you dewy, fresh looking skin and work as a primer to keep your make up in place and looking smooth. I tried it and....well...I didn't see or feel any difference in my skin or make up. This isn't the first time I've been a bit perplexed by a primer. I just don't see any difference. Personally, I just don't see any benefit for me in this product. That said, the product feels light on the skin and is pleasant to apply unlike some other primers which feel a bit heavy and sticky.

    First thoughts - over-rated. Great to use as a primer under make-up, or to use as an intense moisture boost for dry skin. I didn't see any difference in my complexion, only that it looked dewy.

    Not too sure about this one. Works well as a primer and glides smoothly onto the face. Even though I followed the instructions for application, I can't say that I noticed a visible difference in my skin - no great glow or freshened look. But it does help underneath foundation, so I'm not complaining. I just don't believe in the the hype, that's all.

    At first I didn't get this stuff, not sure how to use it. This stuff is great for when your hung over, sick or looking tired. It really makes you looking glowing but not over the top. I always use this for the days when I don't feel so crash hot. You put it on before your makeup but after your moisturiser. It's like a primer. The trick is not to rub the product into the face, just pat on face,

    I was initially a bit wary to try this as I have heard mixed reviews about it (not on here). I have been using it daily for about a week and I love it! It smooths on to the skin and works great as a primer. It stops my skin from getting oily during the day but it also leaves the skin glowing and the glow will shine through your make-up. I think it's great!

    This product has cult status, and it is easy to see why - it instantly brightens the skin and primes it perfectly for make-up. Great pick-me-up for tired, dull skin. Im never without this one :-)

    Two words: beauty staple. Dunno what's in it but oh I don't care! Brightens, tightens, soothes, smooths - the lot! You can use it before going out or before going to bed, as a masque, over your moisturiser - don't need much but boy you'll look radiant!

    For a bit of brightening, or as an emergency dark circle fix, this is the best! Everyone should have it in their kit. I also like it as a mask, when I have been a bit off-colour. Truly a miracle product.

    I love Beauty Flash Balm. Whenever I look in the mirror in the morning and think "Yuk" i reach for this. I don't know how it does it but it instantly brightens your skin and makes it feel much better. Your make-up glides on perfectly as well. I also like to use it as a face mask. It calms my skin and makes it feel so smooth. Definately one of those cult prodcuts that work!
