Review: Face of Australia Mineral Therapy Face and Body Illuminators

I am a huge fan of illuminators and highlighters. It’s actually quite an unhealthy obsession according to Mr. X who thinks all highlighters/illuminators look the same. I beg to differ.

When Tina, a fellow beauty blogger and brand manager of Face of Australia, offered me the chance to review these illuminators, I jumped at the chance!

Face of Australia Mineral Therapy Face and Body Illumminator

Get gorgeous glowing skin with Face of Australia Mineral Therapy Face and Body Illuminator. Light reflecting illumintaing liquid for the face and body to create a gorgeous sheen with a touch of colour.

Features and benefits:

  • Pure mineral formula with jojoba, vitamin c and e to protect and nourish the skin.
  • Pearlised, light-reflecting formula
  • Suitable for sensitive skin


The illuminators come packaged in a huge plastic squeeze top tube. A word of warning – they do dispense more product than required so just be a bit careful squeezing the tube.

They do come sealed so you’ll know whether it has been tampered with or not. I find this a welcome feature as I always seem to come across products that have been opened, tampered with or used! at the stands. Gross.


Unsealed and broken


The illuminators are liquid which dry to a satin finish. The shimmers are very soft and give off a very pretty glow and not a disco ball kinda glow either. Though they are liquids, they don’t give off that oily sheen.

Both products didn’t fade and lasted all day on me.

I received Angel Glow and Angel Mist to review.

Angel Glow is the perfect illuminator for a glowing bronzed look. I like mixing it with my moisturiser to give my skin that sunkissed look without overdoing it and turning into an oompa loompa.

Angel Mist is my favourite out of the two as it’s fantastic to use for both face and body. It gives off a very healthy looking glow.
