Quick-fire recommendation: Gleam Body Radiance

I never thought I'd come across anything as good as Rio Blush (as blogged about here) until I tried GLEAM Body Radiance (RRP: $15 but available in the UK) - love love love it!

Created by Melanie Mills, the  make-up artist for Dancing with the Stars, GLEAM was originally developed for use on the celebs and dancers on the programme to keep them looking hot without any smudging or transferring.

What I love most about the product is that it makes the skin look healthy, while delivering as much colour as you want as it comes in four different shades (light gold, rose gold, bronze gold, and deep gold), not many other instant radiance products do that. I received all four shades to test so used a darker shade to create an instant tan on my legs, then lighter for winter when I had no colour but needed my skin to look glowing. When I do have a slight tan there is also the perfect shade to enhance rather than add to it.

Although this isn't necessarily noticeable because I only use it occasionally, it's still nice to know that GLEAM contains anti-ageing ingredients that slow the breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin to keep it healthy; made from water and Olive Oil, the lotion is infused with Jojoba Seed Oil, Safflower Seed Oil, antioxidant Japanese Green Tea and White Tea extracts, Aloe Leaf Extract and Brown Seaweed as well as a hydrating marine extract that stimulates synthesis of Hyaluronic acid and increases elasticity. 

Secret Beauty Verdict: GLEAM does exactly that; leaves a gorgeous glow for all skin types and lasts until you want it gone!
