Perk up dull skin, give your body a natural glow and create a luminous look all over with the best illuminating lotions for your face and body. Beauty experts from leading women’s magazines handpicked these so you could reap the benefits of healthy, beautiful skin from head to toe.

Eve Lom TLC Radiance Cream

This illuminating face cream by Eve Lom is an Allure Editors’ Favorite. How’d it get this prestigious recognition? Because it helps to hydrate skin while firming, making skin glow. It does this with ingredients like silica mica, which helps to diffuse light and minimize fine lines and wrinkles, and Arctic raspberry seed oil, which boosts collagen production, making skin look young and glowy.

MAC Strobe Cream

MAC is known for its professional-quality makeup line, but "The Oprah Winfrey Show" contributor Paula Begoun loves the MAC Strobe Cream moisturizer. It is ideal for boosting skin's radiance and giving skin a beautiful glow. It does this with a vitamin-infused formula and iridescent particles. This means it helps illuminate skin instantly while giving it a glow for the long haul.

DuWop Revolution Bronzing Body Moisturizer

The DuWop Revolution Bronzing Body Moisturizer helps to luminize the whole body. It is a body lotion that also gives a hint of tan tint. The lightweight formula leaves skin feeling soft with a slight glow. It works so well that Allure gave it a Best of Beauty Award in 2007.

Burt’s Bees Radiance Body Lotion

Burt’s Bees, a company known for its natural beauty and body products, brings you one of the best illuminating body lotions, according to Real Simple magazine. The lotion delivers a subtle glow without being shimmery or glittery. It’s perfect for when you want to show off your gams.
