I love the color pink – while it’s not my favorite, it’s a color I do really enjoy. But, this color is much more than just a shade but a representation of women all over the World who battle or are battling Breast Cancer. I had a scare last year after finding a lump in my breast and found out after a few tests that it was benign but there are so many that are not so lucky. October is Breast Cancer awareness month and today I want to share with you a product I’ve been trying that has a special edition for this month and Breast Cancer Awareness. ELEMIS is a new brand to me, one I have not heard about before. I was given the opportunity to try the Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm in their Pink Edition for Breast Cancer Care and today I would like to share this product with you.
The limited edition Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm from ELEMIS is their hybrid moisturizer and primer that is housed in a pink tube and comes with a pink zippered tablet pouch to support Breast Cancer Care. ELEMIS is proud to donate £10,000 annually to Breast Cancer Care which doesn’t just support people affected by breast cancer, they also highlight the importance of early detection and answer your questions about breast health.

Let me just say – the packaging itself is gorgeous and I love the pink and girly feel to it all. The product itself is white in color, squeezes out of a tube (which I love – very easy to use packaging for dispensing) and has a creamy liquid-like texture. A little of this product goes a long way and smooths onto the face easily. I apply it onto my face after cleansing and over my moisturizer. You can use the Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm as your light moisturizer daily, but since my skin needs the extra hydration, I use it in combination with my normal moisturizers. It applies easily and quickly blends into the skin leaving a light feel similar to moisturizers I have used in the past. Since I don’t use foundation, I wasn’t able to test how well it worked as a primer for that purpose, but used under blush and bronzer – it worked well and kept my makeup lasting longer. I love how light weight this product feels on my skin and since I have sensitive skin and didn’t have any reactions from the product – I consider that a win.
The ELEMIS flash balm can be used as a radiance booster, by helping your skin look more radiant and luminous instantly. I noticed the first time I used this product that my skin looked brighter and dewy – without the oily feeling. My skin felt smooth and glowy without products and I loved how my face looked bare and without makeup.

With ingredients and key actives like Purple Orchid, Noni (which is known in Hawaii for it’s healing properties), Acai and Silk Mica – the balm is a moisturizer, but brings radiance and softness and casts a light-scattering veil to melt away the appearance of imperfections. The formula really feels great against the skin and I think that each woman should try this stuff – at least once. I really love how my skin feels and looks after using this product and I think it may be something I’ll continue to buy in the future once I run out of it.
Every woman deserves to feel good – no matter what she’s going through. I’m a huge supporter of companies and brands that incorporate great cause into their products and ELEMIS has gone pink to show their support for the extraordinary work Breast Cancer Care does.
