Happy Tuesday to you all… After having the bank holiday off yesterday I’m feeling in a complete muddle, like today is Monday. This’ll be an issue the entire week!
That aside though, I hope you all had a lovely pro-longed weekend! I had a couple of chill-out days – you know the drill, photo sessions, writing posts, relaxing in the garden and baking – and then went out with the family yesterday! Let me know what you got up to – I’d love to know.
Now onto today’s post – dedicated to a product that has ‘revolutionised’ my foundation routine, and by saying that I ain’t exaggerating one little bit! It’s from B Beauty, a brand that you can buy in Superdrug if I’m not mistaken, and it’s their Highlighting Serum. IN LOVE.
Time to tell you why.
The price tag that comes with this serum is £14.99, so quite pricey considering that it’s sold in the drugstore – is that just me?
The packaging is… Not my favourite, I have to say. Very plastic-y. And for the price, I at least would have appreciated a glass bottle! It does come with a pump though – I have no idea who’s brilliant idea it was to make products that don’t come with a pump, but it completely puts me off purchasing them (especially if you have to buy the pump separately, hence the reason that I’ve never considered NARS Sheer Glow).
One thing that I do adore about the packaging is that each time you pump it a plug at the bottom pushes upwards which means you’ll be able to use every last bit of product.

The serum contains highlighting pearls so when you pump it out it has a pretty odd texture – it feels lumpy almost, but it blends out easily. Once finished with it gives such a natural sheen!
You can pop this onto your skin just after your completed skincare routine if you like to give a natural glow, but my personal favourite way to use it is to mix it into my regular liquid foundation – just one small pump of both. As you may already know I hate heavy foundations, so mixing a blob of serum in sheers the product out and really hydrates the skin – a bonus for me, as my skin’s very dry. It also adds a lot of radiance and glow to the skin and makes you look really healthy.
Because of the finish I’m not sure that this would be great for any of you who are really really oily, but for very dry to slightly oily I think this would be brilliant! The glow that it gives doesn’t feel greasy or oily in the slightest, just hydrating.
You can pick this up here!
Overall this little serum has completely changed my foundation routine and I can’t say enough good things about it! Perfect for spring too – that dewy look is so ‘in’ now, right? Plus, there’s nothing as beautiful as healthy, natural looking skin.
Do you like dewy skin, or are you a matte lover?
