Ok, I officially love this glow balm. It's such a unique moisturizer-meets-primer with just a hint of glow. It kind of has a slightly tacky finish — think J.One Jelly Pack but way less sticky — without the usual K-beauty "tone-up" (read: white cast) and gives my skin a glow without being overly shiny. It really "grips" my sunscreen and my cushion compact, which I always appreciate during the summer when everything seems to slide off. The pretty packaging doesn't hurt either.


How does your sunscreen hold up over this?


I actually find that it "grips" my sunscreen as well, so I feel like I'm getting a more even layer all over my face.


I'm getting this in the mail today I'm so excited!


Thanks for this, Anna! Why 4 stars instead of 5 then? You seem to only have positive things to say :)


Actually, I have no idea why it shows 4 stars. I could've sworn I gave it 5 stars, because it definitely deserves it! And I can't edit the stars for some reason ... 😩
