Soap & Glory Solar Powder

Friday, 13 June 2014

I've been wearing make-up for years now but Soap & Glory Solar Powder is the first bronzer I've ever bought. Most of them look too orange or just too dark and being a pale girl I don't want to look like I've applied mud to my face.

This bronzer is different. The compact contains two shades  a bronzer and a highlighter  and neither of them have left me with the dreaded orange complexion. You can sweep a large fluffy brush over the compact and dust the powder over your skin, or you can use a smaller brush and apply each shade individually to define areas such as your cheekbones.

Not surprisingly, the paler shade works better with my skintone but both of them blend nicely  they have a buttery soft, cream-to-powder texture. There's a sprinkling of shimmering pink powder on the top but this goes away after a couple of uses, so you don't have to worry about looking like a glitterball!

In the usual Soap & Glory style the packaging is uber-cute and there's a mirror in the compact in case you need to reapply. I've found that the bronzer has pretty good staying power though, which (naturally) I'm really happy about. 

I'd really recommend this, especially if you have pale skin like me and struggle with finding a decent bronzer. I've found that the powder gives a healthy glow when applied, and who can resist that?

Soap & Glory Solar Powder costs £11 and is available from Boots.
