Erborian Glow Creme

Glow.  Radiance.  Luminosity.  Yup, I want all three! The Korean brand Erborian delivers the goods with its GLOW CRÈMEa multi-tasking complexion enhancer that does triple duty for skin. My how I love anything that multi-tasks! This complexion cream is a primer, a highlighter, and an illuminator all in one.

So what is the difference between those three things? Well, a primer preps skin for makeup, creating a smooth canvas for better application and staying power. A highlighter is used in specific areas to bring them out, like the cheekbones. An illuminator is used over the entire complexion for an all over luminous blurring effect.  Erborian says that their GLOW CRÈME catches and reflects light for a subtle hologram effect.

Erborian GLOW CRÈME does even more than highlight – it also moisturizes and treats the skin with licorice extract and squalane. I like it as a primer, although I need something more heavy-duty than this. If you don’t need major primer help you will be very satisfied, but if you need more help with smoothing out pores or makeup longevity, this wouldn’t be the product to buy specifically for priming. As a highlighter, I find I need to apply a few coats to get that real drama going.

Where GLOW CRÈME really shines (ha ha) is as an illuminator. I have been using this as an all over illuminating cream for a few weeks now, smoothing it on after my primer and before my foundation, and I love the results. It makes my skin look radiant, glowy, and healthy – really wonderful in a natural, youthful way. It is exactly what a glow cream should do!

You can find Erborian online and in person at Sephora.  – Lisa


  1. I wouldn’t be able to use this as a primer. My skin needs heavy-duty help. However, I’d love to try some Erborian products.

  3. I have this, and I absolutely LOVE it! It is amazing, and my skin looks so healthy and luminous when I use it. I also like to mix it into my foundations, tinted moisturizers and BB creams to make them more luminescent!

  4. Looks like it would work great for my skin!

  5. I love a great multi-tasking product! It sounds like you are having great luck with this Glow Cream.

  8. I’m on my third tube of this!

  9. You can mix it with your foundation if you want an “illuminating” effect. I do that sometimes.

  15. Katie Marie says

    I hear good things about this brand a lot, so good to know it’s worth it!

  16. Aha… This sounds amazing. I love such glow creams which doesn’t give “bang on your face and can be seen from the moon” highlight, which doesn’t look artificial, but blends nicely to give a subtle glow..
