Soap and Glory "Bright here, bright now" face balm



I'm really loving the luminous skin look at the moment and stumbled upon this when i was rummaging through soap and glory's skincare collection.

The product is a pearly pink colour but on application it turns clear. The apricot kernel oil moisturises the skin whilst the aloe vera adds a touch of brightness to your face.

The packaging is typical of S&G's quirky style and the aluminium casing makes the product really easy to get out.

I use this product in two ways; I rub it in before applying my foundation in place of a primer/moisturiser or i just wear it on its own to make me look more awake and radiant.

What i really like about this product is that it's really lightweight. When you are wearing some particular products your skin can feel quite "heavy" but i've found this product to be virtually weightless on my skin.

The only annoying thing about the balm is that it can sometimes cause break outs on my forehead but the rest of my face tends not to get affected by the product.

Overall, i highly recommend this product to anyone who needs a morning "pick me up" or wants to achieve a glowy/dewy finish. A tube costs £10 from boots (here). I've had my tube for 3 months and have been using it every day and it is still half full so you're getting value for your money.

  3. I love Soap and Glory, but I really didn't see any brightening happening with this. It did feel nice on, it just didn't seem to do anything else for my skin. It's the first product of theirs I've ever been disappointed with xx

    1. Ah that sucks that this didn't work well with your skin! It's the only facial product i've tried from their range!

  4. This looks like such a good product. My skin is incredibly sensitive though so I am not sure if this would work for as as it made your forehead break out!

  21. Firstly I just want to say thankyou for the comment on my blog! Was such a lovely thing to read! ♥♥ and secondly, I've never tried any of Soap & Glory's facial products, hadn't actually heard about this one. I've only tried their bath stuff so far (and the hand cream because it smells amazing!) but I'm quite tempted to try this out, especially since it doesn't feel heavy on your skin :) Lovely blog, followed you on Bloglovin' xxx
