The summer may be well and truly over and some people may think bronzer should only used in those months but it’s actually a product that can be used all year around. Everyone in the blogging world including myself has raved about NARS Laguna bronzer and whilst that is my favourite, another which I enjoy using is Soap and Glory Solar Powder.
Soap and Glory Solar Powder is a product that has both pros and cons for me. Let’s start with the latter. Whilst, I like the original shell shaped packaging I do find it annoying because it has no catch on it so it can literally just flap open. This makes this is a product I refuse to take in my make-up bag otherwise I end up in a big bronzer mess. It’s such a shame because a mirror is also included in the lid of the packaging and it’s one of those products which is always good to pop in your hand bag for use on the go but it’s one thing that definitely does put me off using it on occasions.
Now the negatives are out of the way let’s move onto the positives. Soap and Glory Solar Powder is actually two toned so you have a light beige which contains a subtle shimmer as well as a darker matte brown. You can easily use these colours separately but I tend to swirl my brush in the pan to get an even mixture of both as they work really well together. You get a huge amount of product so this bronzer will last a very long time as you only need to use very little and the embossed ‘S&G’ finishes off this product really nicely.
The formulation of the powder is very soft and blendable so it is very easy to use and it gives you a very natural sun-kissed look. As you can see in the swatch picture above the colour is very subtle so is perfect for people with pale skin or those who are new to using bronzer and don’t want to use anything too heavy or risk looking orange.
Soap and Glory Solar Powder is a really great high street bronzer and available at Boots for £11.00.
