Rated 4.39 out of 5 stars
I got this product as a FREE trial through the Hive Helpers club. I have maturing skin, and at 48 years old I don't want to over do the glow. This product goes on smooth. I did take away one star because I think it doesn't have a very pleasant smell. It did blend right in and it gave my face a nice looking glow that was not too noticeable! I like it and will continue to use it. Being older doesn't mean I can't enjoy a glow to my face! I am including a photo of a swatch of the cream a before photo with no make up on, a photo with just the glow primer, and a photo of my completed face. I did not add any other foundation or anything, just some blush.
As a primer? It draws attention to my blemishes and doesn't help smooth pores.
As a glow product? It feels more oddly shiny/greasy than glowy.
It also does not wear well. I bought this to pair with their tinted moisturizer and together they cling to dry patches and draw attention to any texture.
I now apply under my tinted sunscreen like a highlight so I don't waste it but I wouldn't buy it again.

I absolutely love this primer. It is better than others I have tried. It goes on so smoothly and leaves a bright finish. My foundation then just glides on and stays longer. I strongly recommend!

Gives a subtle glow without being sparkly. My daughter said I looked "glowier". Often use it without foundation for a natural, healthy look. Doesn't highlight my wrinkles (I'm 51).

i bought this so long ago and im just now reviewing it for some reason, but i dont like this product. i have really dry skin, and i thought this would be perfect, but it has a more lotion-like texture with shimmer that leaves shiny streaks on your face and takes forever to rub in. because it takes so long to rub in, it leaves your face feeling dry and gross after. it also smells weird. its a no for me.

Well at first it looked great. Then I notice how it would peel off my face if I put other product on top of it. Otherwise, it looks nice.

This product has some kind of silver shiny stuff in it that makes you look pale, kind of like an alien. It would also clump in places and I would have little globs of glitter on my face. I was hoping for a moisturizing glow like I get from glossier's skin tint. Not the case. I hope Rite Aid takes returns!

Like most of their products, a little goes a long way, which is awesome. This primer feels amazing on your skin, not greasy, but very shiny. I don't always wear a tinted moisturizer, which would probably cover the high shine. I wish this came in a matte version.

Perfect Primer. Keeps my face moisturized and glowing all day. Works great with Burt's Bees BB Cream, Tinted Moisturizer and powder! Love it and all your products!!

It's great if you want to look like a vampire from Twilight with literally sparkling skin, but also look greasy and highlight all your flaws. Every little pore and wrinkle was magnified by this primer, and I looked and felt super greasy. I use BB creams instead of foundation so maybe it would work with a super matte, full coverage foundation, but if you're like me and prefer lightweight creams this stuff is awful.

I love going to this primer to illuminate my skin. It's long lasting and doesn't have an odor. I really love Burt's Bees and I will always come back to this primer in the end.

This is beautiful under foundation or mixed in with a lighter cc cream. I honestly bought it as a last minute grab and was not expecting to love it as much as I do!

Honestly, I love the softness and sheer look of this primer however it did not sit well on my face. When applying and smoothing out onto my skin. it's like the product clogged up or rolled up on my fingers, leaving weird little globs on my face. Like the texture of small boogers (I know, I know). Not for me, personally!

I bought this product by chance. I used moisturizer first, then this primer, then concealer and next foundation. I have received many compliments on my make up from the time I began using it. I like the way it smells and goes on smoothly on my face. I highly recommend it. You will be happily surprised.

I liked how this primer made my face feel soft and moisturized. Unfortunately I do not use much makeup these days and never got to try it under makeup. I got comments that my skin has a glow. The event was light and fresh. I think many skin types would benefit from this primer.

Love the face primer. Light texture. Goes on well.
GGloria from California
This primer felt great on my skin. It did not make me break out. It felt light weight. I applied foundation and it looked great all day. It even out my skin. I really like the smell of the product. Perfect for everyday use.

I have combination skin so I tend to not wear much makeup and let my face do it's thing. This primer was moisturizing and lightweight. It has shine, which I enjoy very much, but it might not be for everyone. I wore it alone, but with foundation, I'm sure it would tone down the sparkle.

Illuminating primer goes on smooth. Didn't feel heavy on my skin. Felt very light. Made my skin glow. I would definitely recommend this product. I was given this product for a fair and honest review.

This Goodness Glows Illuminating Face Primer by Burt's Bees leaves your face feeling smooth and luminous. This long lasting face primo is perfect for smoothing your pores prior to putting on your foundation. It also very lightweight on your face.

I absolutely loved this primer! Primer is something that i use daily and i only use certain kinds, but i loved this one! The Burt's bees Goodness Glows Illuminating Face Primer was great. Very soft on the skin, and hydrating. I loved how it did leave that glow look on my face. i recommend to anyone wanting to try something new!

I have oily facial skin so I'm always worried about what products work with my skin type, I was very happy with the results of this product. After applying my face did not feel the least bit greasy and it had a healthy glow to it instead of an oily look. It worked well under makeup and foundation stayed all day long.

I really like how this makes my skin shine. If you want a product for your face to glow, this is it! I apply it as a primer and add a little powder to my face and the effect is wonderful! I will keep using it for that glowy look.
