Soap & Glory Skincare | First Impressions

I'm not particularly loyal to any skincare brands (sorry Love Island's Georgia) but when I do buy skincare it needs to tick a few boxes. It's always got to be for dry or dehydrated skin and more recently I'm on the lookout for under-eye products and for ageing because lets face it I'm getting no younger and planning a wedding and being a teacher are both rather stressful. I've tried a few skincare products by Soap and Glory but with the help from a 3 for 2 offer on the Boots website I've got three new products and I've been putting them to the test.

Soap and Glory have a good range of skincare products and the affordable prices mean you can try out products and build up a whole range to suit your day-to-day routine. Soap and Glory also have a skin diagnostic test which can help you find out exactly what you should use for your particular skin concerns. It's quite handy if you're not quite sure what's out their for you. When I did the test it highlighted some of the products I've already used and suggested some of these...

I have dry skin, that's just my skin type, drinking lots of water and applying moisturisers helps it but it's never going to be normal. I want to use moisturisers that are going to make my skin feel healthy and hydrated every day. If I can apply a moisturiser at night and my face still feels soft and happy the next morning and throughout the day then it's a moisturiser worth using. Soap and Glory Speed Plump Overnight Moisture Mousse sounded like it was going to tick all the boxes. 

I've never used a mousse moisturiser before and I can't believe how amazing the texture feels. It's really light-weight and sinks in fast so you can head straight to bed and let it get working. In the morning my skin doesn't feel at all tight or flakey, instead it's soft and smooth. It definitely works. I think I've found a new favourite.

I've been on an eye cream mission for most of 2018 trying out all sorts of high-end and drugstore products. My latest one to try is Soap and Glory Puffy Eye Attack. It's got loads of ingredients in it that's meant to firm skin, reduce dark circles and boost collagen. It had quite good reviews and wasn't the most expensive one in the market at £12.50 so it was time to give it a try.

The pot is absolutely tiny but after using it for a couple of weeks it still looks like it did when I first opened it so maybe it's going to last a long time regardless. I've been using it morning and night and it sinks in nicely and feels quite hydrating. Under my eyes might look a little less dark from the botanical soy and rice peptides and yeast protein ingredients. It has only been a few weeks though so it's not an astonishing transformation or some kind of miracle worker. I'm looking forward to continuing using it in my skincare routine though.

My last purchase in my 3 for 2 was Soap and Glory The Fill Monty Instant Wrinkle Filler. This was definitely a case of 'what product should I try for free?'. I don't think I'd have bothered buying this if it wasn't for the offer. Wrinkles aren't actually something I'm conscious of but it's one of those things that I feel like I need to be prepared for and rather than just let them appear do something about it. Soap and Glory certainly have quirky names and The Fill Monty Instant Wrinkle Filler is meant to have results within seconds from Virtual Retouching Technology and Frozone - whatever that is.

I'm not sure what I think of this just yet. I've not seen any instant changes in my skin or face but then there's not strictly places I was looking for definitive improvements. The tube is quite small but the cream feels quite concentrated, thick and creamy. I'm a little bit hesitant whether this is actually just a quick fix rather than a long lasting skincare product. I think I'll have to keep trying it out to see.
