Soap & Glory Feel Good Factor Translucent BB Cream*
boots.com, £8 (50ml)
Is it bad that I’ve already started planning our Summer holiday destination? I know we haven’t even had Spring yet, so my excitement may be a bit premature, but the thought of sunglasses, tanned skin, mojitos, & flip-flops is the only thing getting me through this dreadfully miserable week we’ve had here in the UK. With that in mind, I think I’ve found something that will be coming with me on holiday this year…
This is the Soap & Glory Feel Good Factor Translucent BB Cream; at first I was a bit confused because in my experience, BB Creams are generally tinted, and even if sheer, they provide some sort of coverage. This BB Cream, however, is already described by Soap & Glory as a translucent BB Cream, which is a contradiction in itself; so avoid confusion I think this should be labelled as a moisturiser, not a BB Cream.
Nomenclature aside, this product claims to be 3-in-1: primer, moisturiser and UV protector. As a primer, I find this didn’t work too well for me; despite being quite thin when dispensed, the product leaves a very thick and luxurious layer of moisture on the skin, which took a long while to be absorbed. Initially I thought my skin would stay sticky and moist, but after about 15 minutes the product did eventually sink in. Unfortunately, that’s a relatively long time for a primer to sink into the skin, so I won’t be using this as a primer.
Now, as a moisturiser and UV protector, this cream exceeded my expectations. As I mentioned before, it’s quite thick in consistency and therefore perfect to give your skin a day off from makeup and a boost in the hydration department. It comes with a huge SPF 25, so I can see this being a big hit during the Summer, especially to take away on a Summer holiday and top up throughout the day.
Pardon the bare face! Look at all that redness and pigmentation… ugh!
Overall, I do recommend this as a moisturiser and a UV protector, but not as a primer and BB Cream. It’s affordable and you get a decent amount of product (50ml) for your money.
