Bright Here Bright Now Review


I've had Soap and Glory Bright Here Bright Now for a good few months but it's only recently I've discovered how amazing it is. It's one of those products that takes a while to get you used to but when you do it's amazing. Bright Here Bright Now is an instant radiance energy balm that can be used in place of a moisturiser or mixed in with a foundation. If you have oily skin then you should properly steer clear 'cause this is all about the bright dewy finish. Think Mac Strobe Cream but golden and you're on track.

                                       

I have tried using this as a moisturiser and whilst it does help brighten up tired skin the effects aren't too noticeable. For me it isn't moisturising enough during winter but in Summer time it will be perfect. It makes my skin feel super soft but as I'm only seventeen I can't comment on if it did firm my face.

The best way to use this is by mixing it in with foundation. It instantly makes a dull matte foundation have a healthy dewy finish. For example Estee Lauder Double Wear is a heavy matte foundation but when mixed in with Bright Here Bright Now it becomes a creamy full coverage dewy foundation. Perfect for people who like to mix between matte and dewy foundation but can't afford lots of different foundations. It has completely given my double wear a new lease of life and I now wear it so much more. It also stops the foundation sticking to dry patches and instantly brightens up tired skin. No one has to know how little sleep you had the night before. As for mixing the energy balm with a already dewy foundations I wasn't so in love. Mixed with the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum it was far too dewy for my taste but some people may like that.

I absolutely love this product. At only £10.50 it is worth it because it has revamped old foundations so I don't have to by more. Soap and Glory skin care is yet to let me down!

Have you tried this? What do you think about S&G skincare?

  2. That sounds like a really good product, generally I love S&G. I used to use double wear but went off it due to it's matte finish, I wanted something more dewy so maybe this is a better option as dewy foundations tend to be less coverage.

    Nice post :)
