I had quite high hopes for the The Body Shop Instaglow CC Cream – they look a bit ‘strobey’ but with the exception of Peachy Glow, these did not work for me at all.

Warm Glow is indicated for dark skin tones, so my test of that isn’t terribly helpful because I don’t have the right tone to blend into. The Peachy Glow did better in that it felt a more natural fit tonally, while the lightest tone again, was totally wrong for my face.

Across the board (I’m wearing all three right now and praying the postman doesn’t come to the door) I find this CC texture too dry, and there’s no real glow that I can see – to the point that I’ve re-tested on my arm just in case the light was wrong or I’d made some error. I haven’t and I don’t think it gives any discernable glow at all. What they do do, however, is some minor evening out of skin tone and if that’s all you need, and if your skin is on the oily side, then The Body Shop Instaglow CC Cream offers SPF20. It’s described as a ‘healthy glow reviver’, but on me, I looked anything but revived!

They’re £14 HERE.
