Soap and Glory – Feel Good Factor Review

I am a BIG fan of Soap and Glory products, and I slowly hope to work my way through trying all of them! I love the branding concept, packaging, fragrances, the actual products and that they’re British! I am quite weirdly patriotic… I don’t know if that is actually weird, but I feel it is, especially amongst the young people I know! A lot of their products say they’re made in the UK, and that automatically makes me want to like it and want to buy it more, because I’m like “yeah, that’s some British jobs involved in making these wonderful products!” Anyway… Enough of the economy.

I can’t remember exactly why I bought this product. I was either looking for a primer product, or for a product with SPF in it. It’s marketed as a translucent BB cream; a multi-purpose “primer, moisturiser and UV-protector”.
I do like using this. I first started using it on top of my other moisturiser because of the priming and SPF properties, but when I ran out of that I used this on it’s own before I bought a new moisturiser and it actually did the job perfectly on its own! I think I have an assumption of a BB cream being tinted and going on top of your daily moisturiser, but being transparent this one is basically just a nice moisturiser with SPF! It offers no coverage so I would never wear it on its own but it is a nice base for makeup once you let it sink in for a few minutes. However it’s not the best primer in that it doesn’t blur pores or anything like that. It contains that magical ingredient Hyaluronic Acid, but also, after a quick check of the ingredients, has Parfum (fragrance) in it which I know causes problems for some sensitive skinned people. No problems for me though, no breakouts caused by it either! I have spots somewhere on my face 24/7 regardless, boo.
I think this product is a very nice one to choose if you’re looking for a creamy day moisturiser suitable as a makeup base with a good SPF, which I am very hot on now (no pun intended). I make sure that I’m wearing some everyday whether that be in my moisturiser or foundation! It’s a good habit to get into while you’re young.
I’ll enjoy using this up as a moisturiser over summer, but I’m not sure if I’ll repurchase once its empty, mainly as I love trying new things, but also as I’m always on the hunt for a miracle moisturiser with blemish preventing properties to transform me to the perfect natural complexion. One can only hope. Probably doesn’t help that cake and chocolate is about 75% of my diet lately…
