I’m usually a stickler for routine in the skincare stakes, and live by Nivea soft moisturiser, which has served me loyally since I was about thirteen and as a result I have never once had so much as a blackhead. It is a simple, inexpensive skincare product that does everything that it says on the tin. However, now that I am a little order than thirteen and have the niggling issue of wrinkles to worry about, I needed to find a skincare product that not only did everything Nivea soft did, but worked hard to fight those signs of aging. And that’s where Soap & Glory, of which I already own their lipgloss (Sexy Mother Pucker – it’s my favourite lipgloss that I own) products came in.
I bought three products, one for the night time (Night Cream), and two for the day – the 6-in-1 cream as well as the Instant Radiance Energy Balm. I keep the latter in my handbag as it’s more travel friendly, and use the former every morning after I’ve washed my face.
The night cream has worked a treat; each morning when I wake up my skin feels smooth and nourished. I require less of it to cover my face than I did of the Nivea soft moisturiser due to the thickness of the cream, meaning that, whilst the container seems quite small, it has a very long life length (I bought the product back in April and am less than a quarter of the way through it now.) Indeed, used sparingly is the most effective way of applying the Night cream moisturiser as it is so good it doesn’t require massive dollops to work its magic.
The two moisturisers for the day are slightly more watery in consistency, and markedly less effective than the night cream. Due to the more liquidy content, they feel quite useless, and the 6-in-1 cream in particular has a has a close to nil effect on my skin, certainly nothing positive.
So a mixed bag, the night cream was a treat but the other two not only smelt poor but didn't do anything as moisturiser.
