It's great to use on its own but I usually blend it with my day cream to add that extra shine.

I recently purchased this product and I’m very glad that I did. It does exactly as it says on the tube and provides an instant glow. I’ve applied it by mixing it with my foundation and by putting it on various parts that I like to highlight - on separate occasions. Using both methods has given me different looks to suit the time of day and occasion. _x000D_

The only negative that I can really point out is the amount of cream in the tube. It doesn’t really last as long as I would have liked it to for the price that I paid.

My skin is normally good and I take care of it, but it was looking a bit dull. I looked through illuminator reviews and saw that HF got very good reviews online. I have to say it is a lovely product. I look healthy and softly glowey in a very subtle natural way. This is for you is you want to look to look candlelit rather like someone covered in illuminator. works really well on it’s own or under makeup. I’m going to buy it for friends.

I was given this product as a gift and have repurchased twice now. One little drop mixed in with my foundation produces a flawless, healthy glow and a natural highlighter all in one. Well worth the price tag. As a new mother with a seriously tired looking morning face, this product instantly makes me look wide awake and glowing again. Like a vitamin boost on the outside. Love it!

This is the second time I've bought this product. It's really good & does what it's supposed to do._x000D_
In the past I've bought much more expensive illuminators but this product does a great job and costs much less._x000D_
Give it a try - I'm sure you'll like it!.

It makes an excellent base for foundation and definitely lightens my complesxion making it seem brighter. It lasts quite a long time too, so happy with the price.

I was looking for something that made my skin glow as a highlighter but with a more natural look and this works perfectly! I mix it with an equal part of my bb cream and it creates a lovely dewy-glowy effect. I'm very pleased!

This product is lovely! I don't wear foundation so I just wear this as a base, and it has a lovely dewy look without making you look overly highlighted or sweaty. It dries fully after a couple of minutes and it's so light on the skin you forget you're wearing anything. Would highly recommend! :-)

Tried this and Bourjois as my first foray into brightening primers. I'm nearly 50 yet this one was way too heavy and oily for me. It smells like and feels like Oil of Olay and (like Olay) brings me out in spots.

I thought I'd give this a go and also try it a few times before reviewing..... and.... I really like it :) alone a drop or two can give a dewy sheen to your cheeks and it does mix ok with liquid foundations. Great as a base highlighter and a little goes a loooong way - I've got loads left in my wee bottle so it is good value for money. Definately recommend :)

This is a brilliant product! I've looked at it before and always been quite skeptical of primers and illuminators. I thought i would give it a go after reading some good reviews. Boy am i glad i did! Its a brilliant product that gives the skin a lovely, dewy finish without appearing shiny. I've tried many different primers before, some very expensive, but this is the best one by far! It is a small container but you only need a smidgen and it lasts for ages! Will definitely buy again and highly recommend!

I thought I'd give this a try as I'm a huge fan of S&G products, however I'm a little disappointed with this one._x000D_
_x000D_
Whilst it smells great, it's claims to illuminate skin doesn't really stand up. This isn't glittery or shimmery, it's more of a cool toned pink and yellow iridescent fluid that you can mix in with your foundation or BB/CC cream, use as a base layer, or individually as a highlighter. Sounds pretty perfect, right?_x000D_
_x000D_
Used as a base layer I find that it glides on easily but once you put your foundation (etc) you've lost the pretty iridescent quality and it makes little to no difference to the end result. I think if you don't wear make up then a couple drops of this in with your moisturiser would look gorgeous._x000D_
_x000D_
Now if you mix it in with your foundation or BB cream, you do get a slightly dewy finish, but I've also noticed that it lightens the colour of whatever you're putting in your face, so beware that this could make you look pale and you may need to compensate by using Bronzer to warm your skin back up. Not ideal if you're in a rush._x000D_
_x000D_
Assuming you've done your face up and just want to use this as a highlighter, do not put this on any bits you've powdered. It dries on top of powder very quickly and you've got to be very quick too blend it in otherwise you could be left with little blotchy streaks. Best to powder lightly afterwards._x000D_
_x000D_
I think for £11.99 it's not really worth it (for me personally) but I can see the benefits of used alone with just moisturiser on those days you don't want to wear make up._x000D_
_x000D_
I won't be repurchasing, but don't let that put you off buying. It's worth a try as it could be perfect for winter use x

I have been using this product on and off since it first released and always find myself going back to it even after trying much more expensive products similar to it. It's so versatile and can be used mixed in to a moisturiser to give a radiant base before foundation or mixed with foundation to make even the mattest of bases glow or dab on the high points of the face for the ever popular strobing trend. Perfect glowy skin with no sticky or silicone residue and absolutely no glitter

I mix this in with my Estée Lauder double wear foundation which is very matte and it gives it a lovely natural glow. It smells fresh and blends into the skin very easily. I also occasionally use it on my cheeks for a natural highlight. Excellent product.

Sarah from 40 something dull skin. said on 01/05/2016

I bought this product to give my skin a glow without being to sparkly as I find most products do. It brightens my skin when mixed with my foundation and if I pat it onto the areas I want to highlight it does this with ease.

However, the packaging is nice looking yet the bottle when you squeeze it lets way too much out and some is wasted.

Jane1997 from Enhancing! said on 17/02/2016

This product is great for a subtle highlight without being too glittery or full on which is great for a day time look. It is also build-able, so if the extreme highlight and defined look was desired, then that too is achievable. A little really does goes a long way and to some it may be on the pricey side but this is the sort of product that will last ages in your make up bag!

I use this illuminator on my brow bones, cheek bones and round lips. It is white in the bottle with a kind of iridescent glow and is in a lotion formulation. It gives a really subtle finish and is perfect for everyday and evening use. It just finishes off your make up. Reasonably priced and I have had no adverse skin reaction to this so I am delighted. Will definitely buy another but this one will last me ages.

This is the first primer that I have tried and I love it! The smell is so nice and is a great base for my foundation. It makes my foundation stay on for longer and doesn't lead to a break out in spots. It doesn't completely blur imperfections on face, but otherwise, this primer is very good.

Kathryn from For younger skin? Wrinkle enhancer. said on 03/11/2014

After reading the five star reviews on this product I couldn't wait to purchase it. When it arrived I tried several times, mixed with my foundation and also on top of already applied foundation. All it did was enhance wrinkles that were not very visible to begin with. I presume therefore it is made for a much younger skin and not for a woman of 41 years who be to honest doesn't have very aged skin at all. I gave it away to a much younger friend and wasted my money.

This light fluid gives your skin an amazing glow. Skin is left looking flawless and an imperfections are smoothed away. Even better that it doesn't look glittery. Had so many good comments about my skin since using this - even better that Soap and Glory is often on offer. Cute little bottle has just enough product. Will certainly be buying this again.

This does exactly what it says it does! It brightened my normally dull, lifeless skin to a nice, smooth dewy appearance. It covered the little red veins on my cheeks ready for a light dusting of foundation powder and I was ready. Really good value too, even more so when on 3 for 2.

Lovely product that really does brighten up your skin. I use s little under my mineral powder foundation and it really makes my skin luminous but not too shiny. Another winner from Soap and Glory.

I use this long with my BB cream and mix them together - with amazing results. This adds that little bit extra, making it a must have. You could use it on its own too (you'd only need a little) and it would still be great!

This product does exactly what it promises, minimises flaws and gives a light dewy glow. It can be used with or without your foundation and gives a gently diffusing glow to your skin.

Light reflecting & dewy finish. I mix it 50/50 with my foundation, as Hocus Focus alone makes me look too pale (I'm very pale anyway) I'm nearly 34 & it definitely give you a youthful look. Love it
