I just use a pea size of this product with my B&B cream and receive so many positive comments. When I add the brightening makeup, I get a soft shimmer glow that gives me a refined look without that heavy makeup face. I love it! So many of my friends and family comment on how bright and wonderful my face cream looks, but this is only because the B&B cream and the Borghese Brightening combined gives me a bright, light makeup look. Caution, you need to shake the product to make sure it is fully mixed or you get a watery glitter mess.
