Weekly review....Soap & Glory for Daily Youth....

I've not had chance for one of these posts for a while what with getting used to my camera and getting the new hair done. I've been buying a lot of Soap & Glory products at the moment, they seem to always be on a 3 for 2 in Boots, and there's always something that really appeals to me! I needed a new daytime face moisturiser and am a sucker for anything from Soap&Gory. 

As always, lovely packaging from Soap & Glory. The moisturisers claims to brighten skin, clear imperfections etc etc etc all the usual moisturiser claims. It comes in a 50ml pump bottle, and the actual moisturiser is quite a thin consistency that reminds me a bit of the Olay beauty fluid but with a slightly stronger scent (but strong in a very nice 'Soap&Glory' way). 

I've been using this for about two months now and as much as I do think it's a gorgeous moisturiser, I'm not to sure it does everything it claims to do. It's £12 which in my opinion is quite expensive for a moisturiser but some people may disagree with this. 

The one thing this is good for is a makeup base, for that job along this product is worth every penny. I have a bit of a love hate issue with primers, the only one I love is Benefit The Porefessional but I only really use this at night as it's quite expensive and does tend to sit quite heavy on my skin. 

I pop this on first thing in the morning when I wake up, give it a couple of minutes to soak in to the skin while I shove my hair in a top knot, then apply my foundation as normal. I've got normal to oily skin so some would say a moisturiser as a primer is a bad idea but this would prove those people wrong. My makeup stays exactly where it should be for most of the day, makes it looks fresh and my skin glowing.

Overall I'd say if you're looking for a primer but aren't keen on some of the 'makeup' type primers around then definitely give this a go. Highly recommended!
