The rich cream sinks in beautifully and is fully absorbed in seconds. It leaves my skin hydrated and glowy, but also completely matte and touchable. In fact, if you've been searching for an alternative to silicone-based face primers, this just might be it. It can't completely erase pores or fill in lines, but it does visibly soften both. I also notice less makeup settling into the creases/lines of my face when I wear this underneath.
For more long term results, Pretty has also included sea fennel and alfalfa, which stimulate cell renewal, thereby promoting collagen production and, over time, actually helping to minimize scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. Rose, neroli, lavender, chamomile, and frankincense give the cream a soft scent - mainly floral, but not at all overpowering - while simultaneously helping to improve skin elasticity and giving your skin that bright, radiant look we're all searching for.
The Bottom Line
Whether you're looking for a superb moisturizer or a healthy makeup primer, Pretty hits it out of the park with Pure Radiance. The cream moisturizes like a dream - even the driest of elbows - and it plays well with other products too. I've used it both by itself and layered with serums or oils, and it works incredibly well both ways.
Another great product from Pretty! I'm beginning to think this line can do no wrong!
