Spring skin brighteners

So we all want to look our best in the summer, here are five of my favourite skin brighteners to get you summer beautiful.

The Body shop vitamin c facial radiance capsules. Made to smooth and revive skin,apply one capsule at night time before applying night cream. These capsules leave skin smooth to touch and vibrant when you wake. Improving skin elasticity and protecting against environmental aggressors. 28 capsules for an amazing £15

The elemis pro radiance flash balm. A new type of 'hybrid moisturiser'. This radiance boosting moisturiser helps to prevent moisture loss,fights the early signs of ageing and acts as a primer for make up. I love this cream,unlike most radiance creams it doesn't contain reflective pigments which can sometimes be quite obvious and just cover imperfections rather than fixing them. You can use it on top of a serum if you have a drier skin type or on its own for a normal to oily skin type. £33 for 50ml.

Decleor life radiance energising vitamin cure formally known as the 10 day powder cure. This ten day active serum helps to reduce blemishes, moisturiser, and tighten pores for a smooth, even and radiant skin. In the set you get two lids. One containing the powder and one to use as a dropper. To activate this serum you click the lid down to release the powder into the serum and shake until well mixed. You only apply this for ten days as after this time the active ingredients become inactive. A little more on the expensive side but a great last minute booster if you only have a couple of weeks until a special occasion. £24

Maybelline dream fresh BB cream, now this is the ultimate last minute fix. BB creams are made to blur imperfections, smooth and protect the skin. Apply directly to freshly cleansed skin and voila. I love a good BB cream they make you look fresh and awake and have the fab price tag of just £6.99 :-)

Benefit 'that gal' brightening primer. A luxury pale pink cream which helps to brighten and smooth skin. This primer does contain very small reflective pigments so gives a very gentle glow,the pale pink colour gives a beautiful dewy look to the complexion. I sometimes use this alone if I'm having a make up free day just to brighten my look or for a full on make up I use under make up.I loove this product, great for when I just want to look perky.  A bit of an investment at £22.50 but a little goes a long way and it stays all day.
