We all want to have that enviable glow this Summer but do you need to fork out for a high-end product or is drugstore just as good? Benito have hand picked our favourite drug store and high-end body illuminators and given our verdict.

Drug store – Barry M In The Glow Tahitian Body Oil

Price: £7.99


  • Contains pure coconut oil which will leave your skin silky smooth and moisturised
  • Leaves skin with a sunkissed glow
  • Leaves you smelling amazing with a Tahitian Gardenia scent


  • Does not contain an SPF so sun cream will be needed
  • Slight transfer onto clothing
  • It helps if you have a slight tan already as this has a bronzed colour


Drug store – Revolution Glow oil

Price: £10


  • Gives your face makeup a dewy finish
  • In an easy to use spray bottle
  • Said to last “all – day” with only a few spritz needed


  • Does not contain an SPF so sun cream will be needed
  • Slight transfer onto clothing
  • No scent


 High-end – Huda Beauty N.Y.M.P.H

Price: £40


  • Can be used on the face as well as all over
  • Helps blur imperfections
  • Water and transfer resistant
  • Lasts all day long


  • Does not contain an SPF so sun cream will be needed
  • 30ml bottle (but little goes a long way)



Our final verdict between a drugstore and high-end body illuminator is… with the drugstore you get a lightweight, shimmer on top of your skin perfect for on holiday just to add that extra glow! Whereas, with the high-end is better suited to a day/ night out where your legs are on show and you want a glow that also covers up slight imperfections as this won’t transfer onto your clothes.

We think it is worth investing in the Huda Beauty, N.Y.M.P.T.H if you want a glow all year round and for any occasion but if you are just looking for that slight Summer glow for your holiday we definitely think Barry M’s Body Oil and Revolution Glow oil is worth a try! But make sure you apply some SPF first.

We would love to hear how you get on choosing the right product for you.
