Beauty editors have no shortage of skin-care and makeup goodies that come across our desks. So when we become obsessed with something, it says a lot. In our new “Beauty Product of the Day” series (#BPOTD, for short), we wax poetic about the items that are truly game changers for hair, skin, and nails.

There’s more than one way to nail that lit-from-within glow. If you’re looking to do it with skin care, there’s a serum for that. More of a makeup gal? Highlighter has you covered. So, when celebrity facialist Dr. Barbara Sturm—the skin-care guru behind the famous blood moisturizer—released a single product that combines the two, my ears (er, my skin?) immediately perked up.

Glow Drops, as they’re fittingly called, aren’t the kind of glow-inducer you simply work into your face between toning and moisturizing. The directions say you can either apply them post-moisturizing or on top of makeup. The sole purpose is to make you radiant, after all, and this hybrid helps you get there two ways.

The magic happens because the drops contain a complexion-boosting blend of hydrating glycerin, purslane (an anti-inflammatory succulent), rose extract, and mineral pigments (essentially crystal particles!), which deliver that glisteningly dewy look that everyone pines after.

To test it for myself, I try it for both purposes: as a skin-care step and as a sort of gloss over my makeup. When I slather over my skin post-moisturizing, it evens out my complexion and helps demolish any redness. On top of my tinted moisturizer and highlighter duo, on the other hand, the Glow Drops add an iridescence to my face. They also take care of dryness, which tends to come back to my skin after a few hours spent inside with heat.

The moral of the story? Dr. Sturm’s radiance-inducing creation is basically a shortcut to an enviable luminosity any way you use it.
