Another affordable one today, the drugstore seems to be stocked full of great products at the moment, and this one is no exception. Soap and glory are a brand i've never really tried out, but having recently repackaged a load of their products and with boots 3 for 2 going on, i thought what better time to get to know the brand.

The Soap & Glory Feel Good Factor is marketed as a translucent bb cream, basically meaning its a pretty souped up, multi tasking version of your daily moisturiser. The cream is loaded with hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin, Vitamin E to protect against free radicals, Vitamin C to brighten the skin and SPF 25 UVA/UVB protection to protect skin from ageing and sun damage. All this sounds great even just for a moisturiser, but this product also claims to work well as a primer. Does it work? It sure does.

Applied in the morning over my moisturiser as a primer it can feel a little heavy, so instead it completely replaces it. At first i was a little sceptical as i wasn't sure how a budget cream would work on my normal but dehydrated skin, but it works a treat. This cream sinks in quickly, leaving my skin feeling soft, smooth and prepped for makeup. It somehow manages to smooth over dry patches and overall improve the texture of my skin instantly, which is pretty amazing in my eyes. My skin is left feeling moisturised all day long, not tight nor greasy, and any makeup applied over the top glides on with ease and sits much better than on top of my usual daily moisturiser. The fact that it also includes SPF 25 is a real bonus, as it means i don't have to worry about applying a separate sunscreen as well. This product is great for the spring where i don't necessarily need a heavy SPF but still want to protect my skin, and is also going to be the perfect 'in a rush' product when i don't have time to apply all three steps before makeup. All in all i'd definitely recommend picking up this product, and although it's not replaced my daily moisturiser completely, its one i know ill be reaching for an awful lot. It's currently on offer at boots for £8 rather than £12, so save yourself some dosh and pick it up now!
