With L’Oreal Cushion Foundation (reviewed & all shades swatched here):

Bright Glow under L’Oreal Cushion Foundation

I find this gives a nice soft and brightening glow and light mattifying effect. It does perfect the skin, but I think this is more of a primer than a foundation product. It would be great for no makeup days, and also for under foundation when you skin needs a bit of help on the glow factor. I like it! When I applied it, it mixed it in with my moisturiser and it gives a very comfortable finish. If you’re quick, you can catch me applying it this way on my snapchat – reallyree – see my snap code below.

I think I want to try the Peachy Glow too. I’ll update when I do.

The Body Shop Instaglow CC Cream is £14 and available to order online HERE.
