Never before has there been more excitement about the name of a product. Soap & Glory’s whimsical packaging and slogans never fail to put a smile on my face. The smile was much needed the past week as I’ve been feeling very sorry for myself. Curling up in the foetal position for most of the hours of the day due to illness is not my ideal way of spending time. I’m pleased to announce that I’m on the track to recovery now though (phew)!
During the hours where I actually had to leave the house this week, I seriously needed some help to give my face an added boost. If I’d have been ill a week later I could have just passed it off as an early Halloween costume attempt, but alas I needed to look mildly presentable. I found myself reaching for a new daily moisturiser, which claims to give you a sunkissed glow – much needed for my zombie-like complexion.
I have to say that I’ve completely fallen for this product! It’s a really light formula, with a moisturising texture that sinks instantly into the skin. The colour is slightly tinted to cover up any of them dull spots on your face. I like how it isn’t really shimmery or glittery, as that’d be a bit too much for the Autumn/Winter season (and I don’t usually go for that anyway). Instead, it gives you that effortless fresh-faced dewy look. It is the perfect base for your foundation or BB cream as it isn’t heavy, and applying it underneath creates a lovely subtle ‘lit from within’ glow.
Paying £11 for a highstreet moisturiser may seem a bit steep at first glance, but I’m convinced that it’s worth the price (and Soap & Glory are always on a 3 for 2 offer anyway). The size of the product is generous, and you only need to use a pea-sized amount each time, so I know mine will last me ages. There’s a 2 for 1 Boots offer on S&G at the moment, so click here if you want to have a little browse.
What moisturiser do you guys love that boosts your complexion? I’d love to give more of them a go!
