It’s that time of the year again… Shops are filled with the advent calendars and it is really hard to make a decision on one, isn’t it? Since I shop at M&S regularly, missing the M&S advent calendar offer was not an option. Rosie for Autograph Amazing Radiance Body Glow is the first product which revealed itself from the first door.
Since Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has a collaboration with M&S, seeing her product in the calendar wasn’t really a surprise. Last year there was a makeup product, Rosie for Autograph Lip Glossy and now a body care which actually comes handy for the festive, party season. 50 ml is a decent size. It would definitely last for quite a few uses (unless you apply it all over then maybe 2-3 uses max). So how good is Rosie for Autograph Amazing Radiance Body Glow?
Let me start with the not so good bits… If you’re expecting anything moisturising, then I’m sorry to say that it might disappoint you. Well of course if you have baby soft skin then no matter what you apply, your skin will feel soft anyway but if your skin is prone to getting drier in colder months then it’s worth moisturising your body beforehand. The last one is, the tint isn’t dark enough to make much difference on darker, tanned skins. It would only add a little bit of glow and sparkles, apart from that don’t expect much. I believe this is mostly for the lighter skin tones, however, I must admit I like the tiny sparkles and glow.
Apart from those two not so positive comments, it is not actually bad. It applies streak free and smoothly. If you let it dry and set properly then it doesn’t transfer on the clothes(I can’t talk about white though, only tried it with light colours but not white). It washes off easily so you don’t need to worry about having colour patches after the shower, there might be a few micro size sparkles left, but it is almost impossible to see.
It has floral, sweet smell which doesn’t fade away quickly. I wouldn’t say it has a light fragrance but more on the overpowering side. If you use this all over, you could actually skip your perfume or opt for something lighter which has the same notes.
Rosie for Autograph Amazing Radiance Body Glow is £12.50 for 120 ml. Would I recommend it? It depends on what actually you are looking for. If you want something for tint/colour then I’d say pass it, however, if you want something that smells nice and lasts long then adds a little bit of glow and shimmer then go for it. Would I purchase it? I am not really sure.
Have you tried Rosie for Autograph Amazing Radiance Body Glow or anything from her body care range?
