So I purchased this product wondering what the heck a translucent BB cream is, back when it was still summer, and it was a greasy mess to use back then. I forgot all about it, until winter approached and my skin became a dry, scaly, flaky mess. I turned to Soap & Glory for help, and you know what? They didn’t let me down.
Moisturizer? Check. Primer? Check! (Best surprise, this was.) Sunscreen? Check.
This product was made for dry/sensitive skin. My skin drinks it right up. And the best part is that when it sets, it makes my skin look matte, yet moisturized, yet bright and radiant at the same time. This is the best way I can explain it, really.
As a moisturizer, it keeps my skin, um, moisturized until I wash my face/hands/neck/wherever I applied it.
As a primer, there is so much WIN in this product. Honestly, this product is, to date, the best makeup primer I have tried. And I’ve tried stuff from Laura Mercier to LÓreal. I wear it underneath my LUSH Color Supplement and the combination gives me beautifully even, polished, matte-yet-luminous skin that lasts for hours before getting slightly oily. (Around 6 hours, if you really want to know.)
And it has SPF! You get 50 ml for the price you pay, which is a lot IMO.
If you have very oily skin or live in a very humid climate, this may not be for you I think.
I don’t know why they marketed it as a BB cream, because it really isn’t that. It gives NO coverage whatsoever.
Availability is an issue with most UK drugstore brands such as Soap & Glory.
I wear it on its own as a moisturizer, or as a primer underneath my makeup.

Do I recommend this product?
If you have dry skin and/or need a good moisturizer and/or primer for winter, this is a great option. I plan to repurchase it if I’m ever in Dubai again, which is where I got it from.
