Soap and Glory Righteous Body Butter Review

I have decided to start writing a review a week as I really enjoy reviewing products as you can go into more detail. I am going to try and review as many soap and glory products as I can as I love them so much.So I decided to review this body butter that I have had for quiet a while and love it so much that I save it for special occasions as it is £ 10 which is quiet pricey for a drugstore body butter but it is definatley worth it.

I love the scent it is the typical soap and glory scent that lingers on your body until the next time you have a shower. It is really nice to apply in the summer if your wearing a dress as then you won't need to wear a perfume. I especially like wearing it after I have shaved my legs as it leaves them very dry and this adds all of the moisture back into it instantly. It is super thick so you have to  apply it in the evening or when you can just relax and don't need to get dressed straight away. 

I find it very similar to the hand food which I used to use but now I use a different one or just the body butter as there's not much point having both. I normally use this after I have washed with the body wash and used one of the scrubs from soap and glory to really get the most out of the gorgeous scent and to really pamper myself.

Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro Primer Review

This Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro primer quiet an old product and everyone used to talk about this on blogs on youtube years ago and I finally decided to buy it a couple of weeks ago. I have oily to combination skin and I always found no matter how much powder I used my foundation would come of by the end of the day. I'd tried some cheap primers before but they didn't really do anything for me. This Rimmel primer is available from most drugstores and I picked mine up from boots on 3 for 2 for only £6.99.

 I really like how this primer acts as a barrier for your skin, some foundations make me breakout but they also have a really nice coverage and I like the foundation. I find when I use a primer I can use any foundation and it won't make me breakout or give me rash. 

On the bottle it says it smoothes, resurfaces, mattifies and protects and for me I find it pretty much does all of them. The only one I'd say it could do better is mattify I find it doesn't really do this and under the primer I do tend to use one of my mattifying lotions underneath which work a lot better to mattify. 

When you apply it, it feels really velvety and quiet luxurious when you rub it into your skin it blends out completely as it is a white lotion. It also sinks in very quickly so you don't have to wait around for it to set in before applying foundation. It also doesn't feel like you have it on which I like. I use mine with a moisturiser some people say not to but I haven't had a problem with it. I like how the packaging is nothing fancy just an easy to use tube.

Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation Review

I bought the Nearly Naked Foundation a couple of weeks ago from boots for £8.99 while it was on 3 for 2, I wanted to wait a couple of weeks until I reviewed it as my skin has been very weird at the moment. But, I think its finally back to normal so I am going to review it. It was advertised as a light coverage foundation which caught my eye as I normally wear a light coverage foundation or BB cream for school.  

When you apply it, its quiet liquid-y so you don't need a lot as it blends out really well, I find it easier to apply it with my hands as its such a light coverage and apply it in layer instead of a massive amount all at once. It isn't very buildable but you can get it from a light to medium coverage after an extra layer. But, if you want a fall coverage foundation then I wouldn't recommend this for you. 

I really like how light the coverage this is it just blurs redness and feels very light on your face and doesn't go cakey during the day. It normally lasts about 8 hours on my skin and I have oily to combination skin so it may last slightly longer if you have normal to dry skin. Also, I find if you powder once or twice during the day  pr use a primer it will last a lot longer. 

I don't like that this foundation, like other Revlon foundations, don't have a pump and just pour out, as I always find I either pour out too much and it gets wasted or not enough. But it is in a nice 30ml glass bottle and is quiet small and compact so would be good for travel. 

The shade range is really good for a drugstore I got mine in 130 shell which is the second lightest and matches my complexion perfectly, I often struggle if they don't have enough shade as I'm not super pale. They also have a powder in the range which I really want to try and I think they should have a concealer too.
