Clarins Instant Light Base dupe

Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base dupe

Hot of the heels of my latest Clarins dupe post I’ve found another drugstore version of one of my favourite Clarins products. The Seventeen Wow Skin Tan Liquid Glow is a near perfect dupe for theInstant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base. The Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in shade 03 was part of the summer drop from the brand as has quickly become a firm favourite in my Muji tower.

It’s a lightweight base that boosts the completion for that much desirable model glow from within look. It leaves a glowy but flawless look to the skin all the while hydrating and soothing the skin. On a usual trot around Boots I picked the Seventeen Wow Skin Tan Liquid Glow to see how it compared and if it’d be a little more purse friendly. Much to my surprise it’s very similar. It gives the faux glow effect but adding a bit more of a tan to the skin. Use it alone on good skin days or mixed with your favourite foundation or dabbed onto the tops of the cheeks like a liquid highlighter.

At a budget friendly £5.99 this is one of those summer products you can’t afford to miss. Big purse friendly thumbs up from me!
