Eve Lom Moisturiser TLC Radiance Cream is a daily moisturiser to help your skin look and feel soft, hydrated, youthful and radiant. Suitable for all skin conditions and ideal for everybody who looks for a lightweight daily moisturiser which not only hydrates, but also provides lifting and complexion boosting action.

Naturally fragranced with the most luxurious and natural essential oil Rose Otto of Bulgaria, Eve Lom TLC Radiance Cream contains an exclusive blend of highly effective ingredients:

Arctic Raspberry seed oil, a powerful antioxidant,

Rosehip seed oil, a natural source of Vitamin A and Vitamin C to protect skin from damaging free radicals and to restore skin elasticity. The result a more youthful complexion

Oat Kernel Extract and Sepilift, a triple action lifting complex provide immediate skin lifting and help to smooth fine lines instantly.

For a more radiant complexion added Silica Mica smooth out skin imperfections and add natural sheen and radiance to the skin.

Combined with Hyaluronic Acid skin will be immediately moisturised and longer lasting skin hydration is guaranteed.


I was totally amused by this new moisturiser; Unlike the rest of Eve lom’s product, this wonderful moisturizer is lotion gel like in texture ( despite  it’s named cream ), totally refreshing and non occlusive! It even mattifies my skin when i use it over my holy grail face oil ( ILA ), during day time.

I find my skin less greasy whenever i use this miracle product, be it over serum or oil. This is definitely my new holy grail multi-purpose moisturizer. It’s also a great makeup primer, helping my powder to glide on effortlessly.

The only claim it fails to fulfill is adding radiance, as the silica/mica formulation fail to  deliver even a subtle sheen on my skin upon application.

A powerful anti-ageing concentrate of a potent blend of vitamins, antioxidants and peptides.This contains double the concentration of many actives found in Dynamic Defence.

In addition Revolutionary Renovage™ and Matrixyl™ 3000 peptide combine with triple skin-brighteners and precious iris, rose and jasmine. This helps to give an improved feeling of plumpness, appearance of clarity and restored natural moisture balance.



  • Omega rich oils and vitamins A, C and E provide the skin with essential nutrients for optimum skin health and vitality.
  • Beta glucan, shea and mango butter intensively nourish and comfort dehydrated and stressed skins while extracts of iris, rose and jasmine calm and soothe.
  • Vitamin A helps regulate sebum secretions and improve skin health whilst protecting the skin from environmental damage alongside antioxidants coenzyme q10 and idebenone.
  • Unfortunately, I suspect this product is causing me to have breakout and i also prefer a finish that is more matt. Otherwise, it’s a great anti-aging product with adequate sun protection, high tech moisture magnets & anti-oxidants.
