Even if I have oily skin, I want to look dewy and glowy. I want to cover my imperfections every morning but still leave it looking bright, healthy and hydrated. Wander Beauty sent over products that might help.
Okay, I rarely say this but using the Glow Ahead Illuminating Face Oil ($42) was love at first application. It says it’s a face oil on the tube so, I was surprised when I pumped out the actual product because it’s so light and watery. It’s also pink and it has some glitters on it. These glitters are light-diffusing pigments blended with castor oil, black currant oil, niacinamide, and arginine to form a product that promises to brighten, moisturize, and improve the appearance of skin.
I personally don’t like using face oils however, when I put this on my face, it glided on smoothly and sunk into my skin quickly. It left my skin silky but semi-matte. The glitters were unnoticeable but it did make my skin glow. Aside from this, my skin also feels nourished and hydrated whenever I use this. I like using this before applying my makeup because it keeps my skin healthy-looking and soft.
The Hidden Glow Brightening Cream ($40) contains golden light-diffusing optics to brighten, soothe, and protect the skin, along with eon centella asiatica extract, adenosine, elderberry extract, camellia japonica flower extract, along with cranberry fruit extract, which help give skin a smoother, younger-looking appearance.
This moisturizer is a bit thick so I will have to pull this out come colder days. It does feel nourishing and it offers a slight brightening effect so those with dry or normal skin would like this.
Looking at the Smooth Sailing Perfecting Primer ($36) always makes me smile. This light gel-like primer has gold flakes in them. It contains gold, vitamin c, and vitamin e to mattify, minimize pores, and blur imperfections.
It feels a bit oily but applies matte and light on the skin. It makes applying foundation easy because it feels like silk on the skin. This is not mattifying enough for my oily skin so I always apply powder on top of my foundation to keep the oiliness at bay. It does blur imperfections a bit so, I like using this on days when I wear a light makeup but want that extra glow.
These products are indeed brightening and would be a good option if you want that extra glow to the skin. For those with oily skin, the Glow Ahead Illuminating Face Oil and Smooth Sailing Perfecting Primer are worth checking out. I have been using these everyday since I got it because they just provide that dewy glow I like to have when I wear my everyday makeup. All these products are also cruelty-free, gluten-free, vegan, and are formulated without parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrance, and mineral oil.
