Well they do say diamonds are a girl’s best friend…and this girl could not resist an invite to be one of the first to try skincare containing diamond dust!
‘Diamond Lift Brightening Complex’ is the latest launch of cosmeceutical specialist, Transformulas, and contains diamond powder, vitamins and minerals to tone the skin’s collagen fibres.
‘Along with unique anti-ageing and reviving Gaultine Expression, the rich cream is packed with luxurious ingredients to provide instant results, semi-permanent effects and long-term benefits.’
Design to keep skin looking skin youthful, lifted and toned, this product claims to help your complexion look radiant even after a night’s partying. According to Transformulas, this product brings the following benefits…
Hydrates the epidermis and the derma of the facial skin
- Creates luminosity and radiance to the skin
- Immediate and continual luminance and hydration
- Nourishes and promotes cell stimulation
- Promotes the toning of collagen fibres
- Illuminates the skin with diamond powder
It does feel lovely on the skin and provides an instant radiance and slightly shimmery sheen. The shimmer is visible so it can’t just be applied ‘willy nilly’. I like to use it as a highlighter on my cheek and browbones and have been complimented on my skin when using it. I’m not sure whether the ‘luminosity and radiance’ are more than a temporary effect, but it is a lovely product to use and I can’t deny the thrill of smearing diamonds into my cheeks!
Diamond Lift will be available online at Transformulas at £41.95 for 10ml, from the end of January 2012 (website says March but I’ve been told it will now be late January)

I tested a little sample tube and my skin really did look more radiant and ‘pepped up’ afterwards. As for camera ready? Hmm… not sure on that score!
While it contains no artificial colours or fragrances, there are some parabens in there - along with lots of goodness, including… Volcanic Rock, Volcanic Mineral Ash, French Sea Clay, Purified Clay, Real Pieces of Green Tea Leaf, Green Tea Seed Oil, Grape Seed, Chamomile Flower, Marigold Flower, Cucumber, Ivy, Herb Leaf, Lavender Oil.
GlamGlow does come at a price and is something I’d definitely save for special occasions. Sadly out of my budget for twice weekly use!
