Elemis - Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm (Anti-aging) *

So many people will know my love for Elemis as the Fresh-skin range is basically my all round everyday skincare for use with my clarisonic as well, also there wipes being my all time favourite wipe. Im just wishing the price comes down soon in a deal so i can stock up on them as I'm having to now go back to the affordable version i use. Anyways back to the current releases, which I'm really excited about as i just received a wonderful tub of the Pro-radiance cleanser  in a goody bag, which has on record time scales sold a seriously impressive amount. 

So i was so excited when i saw there was a Pro-radiance illuminating Balm was being released. 
What the website says  

This is a proper, effective moisturiser designed to be applied directly onto clean skin. The ingredients, as you would expect from an Elemis product, are all hardworking and pertinent to the cream’s success. And then the scent: a neroli, bitter orange, bergamot and lemon mélange, which is clean and mood-enhancing, and adds enormously to the pleasure of the application.

Balm Benefits 
— It won’t ball under your fingertips if you choose to apply foundation, unlike many optically improving products.
— It won’t sparkle under the light. There are no conspicuous luminising particles in our balm.
— It won’t leave the skin tacky, or overly dewy, which can be the tendency with products that deliver this kind of fresh, super-hydrated finish.

skin tone*An illuminating balm that i could use as a primer was my main excitement, as i saw a pre-release and its qualities being hailed as a 'hybrid moisturiser' capable of a 3 in 1 properties. Plus during its consumer testing achieved amazing results after only 14 days.

With - 89% claimed boost in radiance instantly, 85% agreed it moisturised and helped fine lines and wrinkles then 91% as a primer said it helped provide a more even skin tone. 
"Formulated with a powerful vitamin complex which helps prevent moisture loss and the purple orchid,  noni and acai to help prevent against the signs of ageing "

Elemis - Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm 

So shall we test these theories out that the consumer statistics claimed this product could achieve and il admit my main aim for this products use will be as a primer. I do have some un-even skin-tone and can look very tired plus have fine lines in my forehead and under my eyes. Basically every woman's problem at a certain age hitting. I wont lie i have fine lines beginning and my lip area tends to be slightly darker in my smile lines. Also i have two tiny birth marks on one cheek that only are noticeable when my skin tone gains some colour.

So the Elemis packaging comes in a tube form method of dispensing and has as always the sleek logo at the top and the title at the bottom. In its simple packaging its chic, plus i prefer the tube as i find pumps will make you loose some product when your near the end. If you spend for high quality you should be able to use it all so in this case i will be. It has "Anti-ageing" also added to the tube which we will see as im planning to do the 14 day test the consumers did with makeup. I want to see all the positives plus, i also want to see whom this illuminating balm is most useful for. Being of a dry skin type i alway use a moisturiser and primer to help protect my face from being dried out by my makeup but also barrier from any products that may make my skin look dry. So on the leaflet it does instruct to use on top of the moisturiser, which makes sense for the illumination when used as a primer.

The consistency is thick, but is very easy to spread with the body's warmth to help the product absorb. Now my main concern on using this firstly is that its scented which can be a main cause of sensitivity with cosmetic products. How ever when it was rubbed into my skin it did not feel sore in any way or irritated by the product.
I then on using more and more realised it was more of a camomile scent then any sort of fragrance plus has a light tinge to it of beige. So I'm assuming no actual scent is within the product but its just the ingredients natural essence I'm smelling. Now i have used this as a primer and moisturiser to see if the bold statements stand true. I can honestly say i used a silicone based primer if my skin was to bad. As I would say "polyfill" it, as i don't want my dry skin to show up more. Then with putting loads of makeup on then reverse the work of moisturising too etc.

As a primer it works brilliant for my skin, being more normal to dry skin tone (Dry in cold weather), i found the product absorbed really well. Plus i was making sure to really use circular motions to get it really into the pores, plus all areas that suffer fine lines and unevenness.
Now the main area i noticed a difference is under my eyes, I'm going to look into this with the leaflet more to see if there is some form of reflective additive. As my bags and the need for concealer lessened or was non existent on some days. You may think well how bad can my bags be, I'm a insomniac so i have grey circles needing a ton of product to correct the light effect in this area.
Im so impressed again with these new gems Elemis keeps on releasing. I would repurchase this in a heartbeat as i feel it really makes a difference plus i suffer with skin that needs a moisturising barrier between my makeup. So multifunctional product that can be used in so many ways is a huge thumbs up for me.
