I was on the hunt for a high facial SPF at the beginning of the summer and came across this new release from one of my favourite brands, Soap & Glory.
After using the Soap & Glory Make Yourself Youthful Sunshield Superfluid SPF 50 since the beginning of summer I thought I would share my thoughts with you!
The Soap & Glory Make Yourself Youthful Sunshield Superfluid SPF 50 offers very high protection from UVA and UVB rays, which makes it perfect for the summer. It comes in a small, sturdy packaging which makes it the perfect accompaniment for travelling and going on holiday. Soap & Glory describe it as having a lightweight and translucent formula and, along with UVA/UVB blockers, it also contains Vitamin C and a fancy sounding “technology” which releases sun-activated antioxidants! In addition to this, it also contains micro oil-absorbing powders to help mattify the skin (which I definitely need throughout the hotter months!).
So, what did I think of the Soap & Glory Make Yourself Youthful Sunshield Superfluid SPF 50? After using it throughout the summer months I can say that I love it! After giving the bottle a good shake, I apply a layer of the product to my face, prior to applying my foundation, and find that it takes very little time to sink in! I also find that my foundation applies nicely on top of the SPF, something which I was wary of at first – but it seems to work! (I’ve used it with Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation and L’Oreal True Match Foundation and it has worked well with both).
Once the product sinks into the skin I find that it is quite mattifying – although I do still have to powder after applying foundation, especially when the weather is really warm/sticky. Another thing I should mention is that when first applying the product, it does have a rather strong fruity smell (which I quite like), although once it sinks into the skin, the smell is pretty much undetectable.
Soap & Glory Make Yourself Youthful Sunshield Superfluid is available for £15 for 30ml from Boots (although it is regularly on offer).
