6 Illuminated Lotions to Keep Up Your Sparkle This Fall

Share Tweet Pin

Fall is officially here, and although we're beyond excited to breakout our fall faves, we can't help but hold onto a little bit of summer. One way we're taking a touch of summer with us is through illuminated moisturizers. We first spotted this trend at Sephora, which appropriate dubbed these radiance boosters as "glotions." With just a kiss of shimmer and illumination, these moisturizers are a fantastic way to add a little sparkle to your skin—without full-on faux tan. 

Get your glow on with these five finds.


Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Prism Cream: All that glitters is gold with this find. Formulated with 24-karat and colloidal gold, this all-over cream creates a subtle illuminated glow on any skin tone. 

Fresh FreshFace Instant Glow Luminizer: Wear this moisturizer alone or with makeup to enhance any look. You can thank vitamin C and E for the supple mix of hydration and brightness.

Volition Illuminating Body Milk: This indulgent body milk is so luxe, you'll fall for the pearl glow it leaves behind.

Tata Harper Illuminating Moisturizer: This indie beauty fave is ideal natural lovers as it contains only good-for-you, all-natural ingredients. Oh, and did we mention its infused with diamond dust?

GLAMGLOW Glowstarter: Fans of GLAMGLOW likely already know the benefits of this cult beauty fave. Ceramides, jojoba oil, hyaluronic acid, and more make this as efficacious as it is radiant.

Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm: Not in the mood for sparkle? This balm from Elemis has more of a dewy effect but still boasts a super hydrating feel.
