If you're looking to invest in a new make-up bag addition ahead of spring, we have just the buy for you: Shiseido's brand-new Revitalessence Skin Glow Primer, £39 here.

If you recognise the Revitalessence name there it might be because it's just launched into the same range as the brand's popular TikTok-trending Skin Glow Foundation, £49 here, which has been impressing app users and influencers for its glow-giving, 'skin-filtering' abilities.

This new priming addition to the Revitalessence range also means serious business. In tests, 100% of users noted their bare skin looked more radiant and pores were less visible after 28 days of use, with 98% noting those same results after one week of regular wear – and you only need to look to the ingredient list to see how it does it.

This £39 primer impressed 100% of testers who say it transformed their skin in 7 days

Featuring niacinamide – which smooths, evens tone and strengthens the skin barrier – two potent forms of probiotics, fermented kefir and SPF 25 PA++, it's powered by the same skincare actives as an anti-ageing Shiseido serum, from £96 here, but is made for use before foundation.

The silicone-free formula creates the ultimate canvas for make-up by locking moisture into the skin for up to 24 hours, meaning your foundation looks fresh and product is less likely to settle into pores and fine lines. When worn alone, it also helps to strengthen the skin barrier and restore radiance. The fusion of skincare and make-up means you're getting insult results with long-term benefits – win, win.

We predict this primer to be the latest 'it' product to take off on TikTok after the success of its predecessor foundation, which has glowing reviews on Boots' website.

If it's glowy skin that you want, Shiseido's Revitalessence range is for you

"The technology they put into this foundation is another level. Very impressive. Beautiful natural coverage. I use my hand and Shiseido’s Daiya Fude brush to apply and I love it! Also I noticed after I remove my make-up, my skin feels very smooth and hydrated which is a fantastic bonus. I would buy another bottle once I finish this one," writes one.

A second notes: "So hydrating and makes your skin glow, in love with this foundation".

If you love the sound of this primer but it's slightly out of budget, don't worry, there are plenty of other glow-boosting picks available under a tenner. We love e.l.f. Illuminating Face Primer, £9 here, and By Beauty Bay Glow Filter, £10 here.
