Nourish Skincare's Golden Glow Illuminating Face Shimmer has been on my lust-list for a really long time. If you don't already know about Nourish then let me give you a quick low-down. Nourish is a cruelty-free and ethically sourced brand, with organic (certified by The Soil Association) and vegan (accredited by The Vegan Society) products that rely on the highest quality natural actives in order to offer seriously effective skincare.

Nourish's Golden Glow Illuminating Face Shimmer* is 86% organic, containing golden mineral powders which give it an immediate glow. As well as radiance enhancing tonka bean extract to emit visible light, leaving skin looking more even and radiant. And you really don't have to take my word for it - I've included some before and after pictures of me wearing the Golden Glow Illuminating Face Shimmer. In these images you can see quite clearly see how the Face Shimmer evens my skintone and adds an incredible luminescence - instantly!

Nourish's Golden Glow Illuminating Face Shimmer is an incredible makeup-skincare cross over. It's thin and light consistency (similar in texture to Laura Mercier's Foundation Primer) make it a wonderful base for makeup, but it's also packed full of Vitamin C and E, which help support your skin's natural protein structures as well as aiding your skin's ability to retain moisture. It feels wonderful on your skin and really helps my makeup look it's best - both at first application and throughout the day. 

I personally find it a bit too glow-y to use alone without makeup, but you can be more sparing in your application (I tend to go all-out) and you can also apply it topically as a golden highlighter. However, when used as a primer, I've never found anything that gives me such a noticeable - but still natural looking - "lit from within" glow. If you struggle with uneven skin-tone, dullness or are just looking for something to leave you looking glowing then I'd definitely recommend it!

You can find Nourish's Golden Glow Illuminating Face Shimmer* on Nourish's website or on FeelUnique for £16.00.
