Who among us isn't looking for a healthy glow during the cold months of winter– I certainly have sought wonderfully luminous products for the season, and I have rounded up three of my favorites from Babor, Bodyography and Tata Harper.
Babor Perfect Glow Hydration Ampoule Concentrates ($39.95 for 7 ampoules 2ml each from Babor, Macy's, Birchbox, Skincare RX, Skinstore and Walmart): If your skin is dull and in need of luminosity and hydration, then these wonderful ampoules are just what you have been looking for! One ampoule per use offers the skin a wonderful dose of sustained hydration, and the light-reflecting particles blur imperfections and leave skin with a beautiful luminosity.

According to Babor,

A concentrated skincare booster for dull skin in need of radiance. Thoroughly hydrates the skin, while light-reflecting luminizing pigments create a youthful looking glow and help to even out skin tone. With regular use, PerfectionPeptide P3 helps promote natural skin rejuvenation. Helps to even out irregularities in skin tone, provide intensive moisture, and give the complexion a luminous, smooth, youthful and radiant glow.
•Use after cleansing with BABOR CLEANSING products.
•Shake the ampoule before use.
•Wrap a tissue around the neck of the ampoule, grasp it firmly, and with a sharp movement snap it open at the lower, colored ring. Alternatively, use the enclosed ampoule opener.
•Pour the concentrate into the palm of your hand and then smooth over your face, neck and décolleté. Pat gently and follow with a BABOR moisturizer.
•Always apply the entire contents of the ampoule.
•Use daily for 7 days.
Key Ingredients: PerfectionPeptide P3, Cacao Extract, Sugar Beet Extract, Luminizing Pigments, and Polysaccharides.
Ingredients: Aqua, Betaine, Polyglyceryl-5 Laurate, Phenoxyethanol, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Carbomer, Parfum, Lecithin, Ethylhexylglycerin, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Disodium Edta, Mica, Sodium Hydroxide, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Theobroma Cacao Seed Extract, Limonene, Benzyl Alcohol, Tin Oxide, Alumina, Hexanoyl Dipeptide-3 Norleucine Acetate, CI 77891, CI 77491.
Tata Harper Illuminating Eye Crème ($115.00 for 0.5 oz. from Tata HarperSephoraNordstromSpace NKNeiman MarcusSaks Fifth AvenueBergdorf GoodmanNet-A-PorterCult Beauty and The Detox Market): Described as an, "age-defying eye cream with a universal pearl blush tint that minimizes the look of lines and wrinkles and instantly illuminates with diamond dust"– I thought that this would be the perfect combination of a luminizer and a nourishing eye cream, and it does not disappoint.
If you love Tata Harper skincare, then this eye cream definitely lives up to the rest of the line. It is a lightweight cream that has a creamy and smooth texture and consistency that resides somewhere between a serum and a lotion. It melts into the skin upon contact, can be used on the eyelids as well as below the eyes, and feels refreshing against the skin. It is filled with nourishing ingredients and hydrators, such as Hyaluronic Acid, Shea Butter, and all sorts of active extracts and oils that smooth and plump fine lines, reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles and leave skin soft, smooth, hydrated and supple. Additionally, the "Diamond Dust Mineral Blend" subtly illuminates the skin and optically blurs imperfections. It has a light pink tint, that is pearl infused, as you can see in the swatch below, but when it sinks into the skin it imparts no color, but just a light luminosity.
It has a very light herbal aroma from the natural ingredients, not from artificial fragrances, but it in no way irritates my very sensitive eyes. It takes very little to make my eyes water, and there is absolutely no hint of irritation or discomfort for me when using this cream.

According to Tata Harper,

This illuminating eye cream is equal parts brightening and age-defying. The formula's pearl blush tint provides a subtle, universal glow and diamond dust reflects light to instantly illuminate the look of the eyes. Hyaluronic acid, Spanish lavender oil, and date palm kernel extract work together to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and hydrate for fresh, glowing skin, while buckbean extract visibly firms and lifts. It provides a beautiful, soft luminescence when worn around the eyes, and helichrysum essential oil lends a green floral aroma.

The swatch above illustrates the color of the Tata Harper Illuminating Eye Crème before it is blended, but once it melts into the skin there is no color whatsoever– just a lovely luminosity.
Bodyography makes sensational cruelty-free professional makeup that boasts clean ingredients, and they are always very high quality.

Their Inner Glow Stick ($26.00 for Highlighter: 0.12 oz / 3.6 g and Essence: 0.11 oz / 3.2 g from Bodyography): is a dual-ended highlighter and essence that gives you the perfect luminous glow, without glitter, and it enables you to achieve a wet-looking luminosity. The highlighter, which is a gorgeous champagne, glides across the skin effortlessly, it deposits color evenly and it neither settles into fine lines, nor does it emphasize pores. The highlighter can be used alone for a lovely luminous glow, or it can be used in conjunction with the clear essence for a wet look. The essence, which can also be used alone, imparts a dewy finish without any color. Whether you layer the two, or use them individually– they offer a lovely radiance without any sort of chunky glitter or fallout. The creamy formulas never dry out the skin, and in fact leave it lightly hydrated. This is a perfect choice for an ethereal glow this winter!

Directions: Swipe essence onto high-points of skin for a fresh, wet-looking luminance. Apply highlighter to accentuate bone structure and impart a golden, shimmering glow. Layer essence and highlighter for elevated radiance. Each end can be worn alone or layered together for elevated radiance.
