Bethenny Frankel uses this $13 lotion from L'Oreal to make her skin rosy, glowy and bronzy in seconds

First Martha Stewart and now the 'Real Housewives' star — is this illuminating tint the Hollywood secret to looking like a million bucks?

We all love to get glammed up every once in a while, but every day? That takes commitment. And if you've got a to-do list that's a mile long, chances are a 10-step makeup routine isn't a top priority. If, however, you want to look like you spent a lot of time perfecting your makeup without, well, spending a lot of time, check out L'Oreal True Match Lumi Glotion.

We've seen Martha Stewart use it, but as it turns out, Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel is also a fan. She posted a TikTok demonstrating how she applies the product — and how she uses three different shades to achieve the perfect glowy, bronzy complexion. Right now, the best-selling lotion is on sale for almost 30% off with an additional on-page coupon at Amazon.

This top-rated face lotion is available in five shades. Wear it on its own or layer it with foundation if you want extra coverage.

Prices on beauty products fluctuate often on Amazon, but the discounts are usually in the 20% off range. Right now, the Lumi Glotion is nearly 30% off with the on-page coupon, which makes it a can't-miss deal. Heck, at less than $15, you can follow Frankel's lead and grab it in a few shades!

Perhaps the better question is, how have you lived this long without this glow-enhancing face lotion? Is there anyone among us who doesn't want to look luminous and sun-kissed in seconds? As Frankel demonstrates in her video, applying Lumi Glotion is as simple as squeezing some of the product onto your hands and massaging it onto your face. Almost instantly, your complexion is transformed and your skin looks brighter and more radiant.

We love that you don't have to be a makeup pro to apply Glotion, but the lightweight formula is also a huge plus. If you hate the feel of heavy foundation that feels cakey on your skin, or even worse, emphasizes fine lines, this lotion is worth a try. You only need a little to start, and it really does feel weightless on your skin. If you want a more flushed or bronzed look, just add a little more until you're satisfied.

Beauty lovers on social media love L'Oreal Lumi Glotion — and so do Amazon shoppers. The product has more than 33,000 five-star ratings. Many customers say it really does give your skin an incredible glow.

"This stuff is amazing!" one person wrote in their review. "It's perfect for those of us who don't wear foundation, or a day when you don't feel like it. This gives me just the right amount of glow. ... It evens out my skin tone but without coverage, if that makes sense. It's very hydrating and blends beautifully."

Another Lumi lover commented, "I have been using Lumi Glotion for some time now. It gives my skin a healthy glow without looking as though I'm wearing makeup. It's great for a more casual look as it evens out my skin tone while remaining sheer. I mostly wear it for daytime activities such as yoga, hiking, etc. It's possible to look fabulous without appearing to have tried too hard!"

A final fan called this "bronze vacation glow in a bottle." They continued: "I typically buy very high-end make-up products, and this has blown all of them away. I wear it alone or I mix it with a tiny amount of foundation for a youthful, sun-kissed, shimmery face. I am over 50, and this evens out my skin tone, gives a youthful look, and is very lightweight on the face."

Though many people are very pleased with the L'Oreal glow enhancer, some have complained that it can be difficult to blend.

"I think this product is pretty OK, but I think it's kind of patchy and you have to watch your blending. Sometimes I'll just randomly see during the day that I didn't blend one spot and then it just looks really bad," one shopper explained.

Another added, "I got this for that glowy bronze summer look and it just looked dirty on me. The product is a little harder to blend than I expected. Under foundation, [it] is nice, but alone I look like I just went swimming in mud."

Fun fact — you can use Lumi Glotion on more than your face. If you want to give the rest of your body a subtle glow, apply a bit to your chest, collarbone and shoulders.
