Review: Soap & Glory

I shared with you recently my first impressions of a couple of new moisturisers.  I thought I would share a more detailed review, now that I have a feel for them.

 

L-R Speed Plump, For Daily Youth
L-R Speed Plump, For Daily Youth

 

Speed Plump:   Soap & Glory claim that this moisturiser will actually smooth out lines and wrinkles.  I wish that this were the case, but I guess that is a bit too much to ask for a £13 product.  However, this is a really nice moisturiser, that creates a soft, glowing base for makeup.   It smells great, is light (despite being formulated for dry skin) and it is very pleasing to apply. The name suggests it will leave skin plumped and hydrated, and that is exactly what it does, in my opinion. It somehow keeps my afternoon oily forehead under control, while also hydrating my dry bits all day long.  Speed Plump is one of the nicer day creams I have used in my time, and I may well repurchase it when I have finished this tube. I have been slightly afraid of parabens for a long time, so the fact that this cream is a paraben-free zone makes me very happy.  All in all a great find.

 

For Daily Youth:  I have been using this as a night cream, because the Lush serum bar that I had been using had a little accident.  Alright, if you must know, I left it on the windowsill and it melted.  Now, usually I like a nice rich night cream – which For Daily Youth is not – so I wasn’t sure if it would be too light.  However, I have found it to be just right for the summer, particularly after my post workout shower, when I don’t like to feel too hot and slimy (it takes me a good hour to cool down properly, even after showering.  Nice). It also smells like peaches and cream, which makes applying it a joy. For Daily Youth contains lots of hard working ingredients, and apparently ‘features our exclusive SUPERLUMINOUS™ BIOPEPTIDE COMPLEX ‘, along with ‘HIGHDRATION™ 365’ which quite frankly sound made up, but I would say that it softens and hydrates, so I am happy.

 

Have you ever tried and Soap & Glory skincare?  What is your favourite daily moisturiser, or night cream?
