Soap and Glory - Show Good Face Review

Last week I finally ran out of my Rimmel foundation, so thought I'd try something new. I had twelve pounds worth of advantage points on my Boots card, so thought I'd give the Soap & Glory 'Show Good Face' foundation a try! It actually only cost me nine pounds worth of points, as it's be reduced from £11. I am a huge fan of Soap & Glory skincare, however this is the first of their makeup products that I've tried. This little review comes from someone who doesn't really have any expertise when it comes to makeup. So if you're looking for a 'normal girls' makeup point of view, without the use of any special make up words, read on!



I'm fairly pale, so picked the lightest colour (luckily there was just one left in store!) 

The product on my horrible vainy hand (apologies) I was going to
use my wrist but that was even worst.

The product rubbed into my skin.



The cute retro style packaging that the foundation came in!
Soap & Glory makeup packaging is consistent with the branding of the skincare packaging.
So as I mentioned above I am NO MAKE UP EXPERT, I am simply a normal (well we'll call me normal for the moment) girl, sharing my opinion!

Packaging
First of all I am a huge fan of the Soap & Glory retro branding, I think it stands out from the rest of the products on the shelf, it definitely can't be mistaken for anything else out there, even if there are some cheaper brands that I've seen trying to replicate it in Supermarkets! The actual bottle itself is sleek and lightweight, small enough to fit in handbags and smaller clutches. The only thing I've found is it is a little tough to squeeze the product out.

The foundation itself
The foundation feels quite thick when you squeeze it out and almost feels like you are putting a cream on your face as opposed to makeup. Although the product feels thick, the coverage on your face is the opposite. I've found that it bares some resemblance to a tinted moisturiser, only with a little more colour if that makes sense. This won't be ideal for everyone, especially if you like complete coverage, however I quite like that it's not too thick, as I'm not a huge fan of foundation anyway, if I could get away with not wearing it at all I would definitely go bare. The product claims to leave a 'dewy, bright, flawless' finish - dewy I agree with, but I wouldn't go as far as saying 'flawless.'

Some extras
The foundation also claims to work as a primer - I don't know much about primers other than that they provide a good base for the rest of your makeup. I would say that this definitely leaves your skin feeling smooth, and would agree that it provides a good 'face base.' - I'm even rhyming my awful make-up words now, awesome.

Conclusion
All in all, I think this is a good foundation for people only wanting a light coverage. The product is easy to apply and rubs in relatively well. I wouldn't say it is the best foundation I have ever tried, however I feel that I am still yet to find my perfect foundation, so if you have any suggestions please comment below! I hope this has helped anyone who like me, isn't a beauty expert and needs an every-day-girl's point of view.
