Soap and Glory Glow All Out

Admittedly I'm not overly familiar with Soap and Glory. As a beauty blogger and a girl I feel like I should be a little ashamed about this fact. Mainly because pretty much all my blog friends and IRL mates use it and rave about it constantly. I've decided to familiarize myself with the brand a bit more, so I decided to give the Soap and Glory Glow All Out a whirl and here are some of my thoughts...

Right, I'll come out and say it. Personally - I'm not a fan of the uber girly kitchy packaging, its the same reason I'm not overly keen on Benefit. It's also cardboard packaging which again I don't like because it's so prone to getting battered. But, we shouldn't judge a book by its cover. The product inside is a pink toned finely milled illuminating powder. The shimmer is so minimal, that it's definitely more of an illuminater than a highlighter. Really subtle, a sort of candle lit come glow from within type product. I like to buff a bit on a small brush onto the high points of my face like the bridge of my nose, tops of my cheeks and brow bone to really brighten up the whole face.

I really like this product, I have a lot of illuminating products but this one has really caught my eye and been a regular in my routine since purchasing it. The pinkish undertone is super flattering and it really brightens up the whole face. At £11 it's an excellent quality product (despite packaging niggles) and definitely a drugstore product that gets a thumb up from me!
Have you tried this product?

  1. I'm just totally not into this whole faux-vintage-style packaging Soap & Glory and BeneFit has going on. It totally puts me off buying the products regardless of how good everyone says they are. I've been tempted by this one because it looks insanely pretty but.. cardboard packaging? NOPE.

  2. I've only tried soap and glory when I've got them in Christmas presents, and a free mascara sample from a magazine. I didn't like that but I really like the look of this, I haven't actually got a powder style highlighter but it looks really nice. I either want to try this or the balm's mary Lou-miniser.

  3. I do love S&G products, especially the lip products. The shimmer looks lovely and since I'm trying to use more highlighters it seems like a great value for money buy :o). Xx

  5. I'm not a fan of cardboard packaging either, especially when you certainly aren't paying cardboard prices! This does look lovely though x

  9. Love the look of this, although like most people I don't like the packaging, I feel like it could fall apart or be very easily squished in my bag, which would not end well at all! I think with this type of product you need to have some secure packaging too!

  11. it gives you a really nice light brightness lily, very subtle. i use benefit watt's up and it's a very warm/golden but makes my pale skin look a bit healthier

  12. I agree about the packaging, its a product I won't be taking out with me in-case the packaging breaks and it goes everywhere - no one wants that! But the product is gorgeous and I really can't fault it x

  31. Everyone raves about soap and glory products, only familiar with their eyeliner pen and that is fantastic. Should probably familiarize myself with more of their products too

  36. I have been using this for a while now and love the product so much, but would agree it's not the strongest highlighter ever.

  37. I stopped at the soap and glory counter a couple of days ago and wasn't sure if to get it or not and now wish I had. I haven't got many illuminators and it would be nice to try a new one! Great post :)
