REVIEW: No7 Instant Radiance Beauty Balm!


If you are looking for the perfect radiance balm – a lotion you put on your face right before your foundation that offers that radiant looking skin –  then I have the answer for you!!

The no7 Instant Radiance Balm is a fabulous cream that gives your skin that lift and glow it needs when your skin is feeling tired or stressed. I honestly dont know how I’ve applied my makeup before without it.

A couple of months ago I was finding that my skin was a little tired looking and I needed a quick fix to get it back to its glowy self.

When I am super busy and stressed, the first thing to be affected for me is my skin. It looses it’s natural glow, radiance and most of all that younger brighter look. I picked up this little miracle in Boots to give it a try. If a product has the word RADIANCE on it, it’s pretty much sold to me!! That evening I went home exfoliated my skin, followed through with my normal skin regime – byt  the following morning I applied this beauty balm under my makeup and my skin was glowing.

This little miracle pot is a total pick me up for tired looking skin and what I love the most about this balm is the really light, thin consistency so it doesn’t feel heavy on the face… yet it leaves your skin glowing! Perfect 🙂

How To Apply It:

1. After moisturising, apply a small amount to the entire face.

2. Let it all soak in

3. Apply your foundation


  • Price €22
  • Available from Boots!

Happy Shopping!

    I love that you only review products worth investing in. There are way too many products out there to be writing about (for you) and reading about (for me), I haven’t the time to read about what’s not worth it, so keep the reviews coming on what is worth our time and hard earned cash! 😉

    Just wondering what’s the difference between this and their other “Instant Illusions Rapid Radiance Balm?

    Why do people come on here just to be mean, i don’t know how you deal with all the haters 🙁 I personally love your reviews and I wish you would do more. I know my bank balance won’t thank you but I do 🙂 Bonus is that nearly all the products you review can be bought in boots and when i do purchase i get loads of points on my boots card, its a win-win situation for me 🙂 Keep it up!

    I actually dont get paid a CENT!! And if you were a real fan then you would know from reading my book and attending one of my talks/ workshops that I only review products I love! There is far too much doom and gloom, as well as negative people like you around to be giving out about products here on SoSueMe.. if I like it – I scream bout it, if I hate it – it doesn’t come near the blog. I prefer to spread positivity. Ex fan – GOODBYE! You wont be missed.

    Another 5 star review?? Really?? Such a joke. So obvious you get paid to write all of these. Losing all credibility.
