Soap and Glory Hocus Focus Review (or not)...

I was really excited to try this product, so when I saw it half price on asos (I can't find it anymore :() it was meant to be. This is a highlighting cream from Soap and Glory that can be put straight onto the face, so mixed with your foundation to give you a nice glow. I thought it would be perfect for summer.

What do they say?

'What is Soap & Glory Hocus Focus Lotion?

A BLAST OF BRILLIANCE FOR TIRED SKIN! An INSTANT visual flaw-softening lotion with long-wearing LIGHTSCRAMBLE™ lumispheres. Contains a delicate hint of our popular Rose & Bergamot fragrance.

How do you dew it?

Use Hocus Focus alone as a cheekbone highlighter, mixed with moisturiser as a gorgeous skin brightener, or blend 2-3 pumps into your foundation (for a youthful, dewy, luminous look).
Can be used in conjunction with Catch a Wrinkle in Time daily moisturiser.'

So I don't want this to be a review yet - I want it to be kind of an 'update'. As it stands, I'm not all that into this product, but I really WANT to love it, so I'm going to continue using it a little longer. Everything on the packaging screams out for me to love it, but so far, I really can't see it making any difference. I've put it on on its own and it just kind of makes me shiney and greasy looking. I've mixed it with moisturiser, and it doesn't really make much difference, I've mixed it with my foundation, and again, not much difference. Maybe its me. Maybe I'm using it in the wrong way. Anyone got any tips? I want to love it I really really do. Usually at this point I would have given up on a product but I'm going to stick it out a little longer.

I want to end this on a positive note... it smells fabulous :)

To be Continued...

Lots of Love



  1. Nope, I totally agree with you - I've tried everything! :( I much prefer Benefit's Girl with Pearl primer, but both barely do anything! If you find a good way to use it, let me know :) xxx

  2. I also tried this and didn't love it. I have combination to oily skin so it didn't do me any favors as it does look a little greasy like you said. Have you tried The Body Shop Radiance Highlighter? Its fab x
