REVIEW: SOAP & GLORY WISH UPON A JAR

I’m a big fan of Soap and Glory products, some might say borderline obsessive. Like honey to a bee I’m enticed by the chic, girlie packaging, cheeky strap lines and oh so delicious scents. I’d been wanting to try their WISH UPON A JAR™ 21 Day Collagen Overhaul Cream for some time, but when I tried to buy it, it  was sold out – a good sign I thought?

The jar says Take a deep breath, concentrate, and make a…WISH UPON A JAR™ 21 Day Collagen Overhaul Cream For tired, dull and aging skin, with shea butter, tetrapeptides, antioxidants and oxygen boosters. It claims to illuminate the skin and minimize the visual aspects of lines, wrinkles, shadows, large pores, pigmentation and discolouration.

The packaging is fab, the little silver ball is the perfect compliment to my bathroom, as is the signature S&G scent, but at £14 a pot, it needs more than fancy packaging to win me over. The cream itself is very thick and luxurious. It spreads easily and a little goes a long way.

Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to penetrate the skin, it just sits there and after a while it feels quite greasy. As someone with dry skin, it’s rare I find a product greasy. The instructions advise using it morning and night, which I did for the first week, but found it too greasy to wear under make up. I’m persevering, but only using it in the evening.

I can’t say I’ve noticed any benefits in my skin. It makes a nice enough night cream, but after 21 days, have I had a collagen overhaul, are my pores smaller, lines reduced? No, No and No.

It’s my first thumbs down for Soap and Glory I’m afraid.

Skincare is very individual, just because it isn’t working for me, doesn’t mean it won’t for you. If you fancy giving it a go, Soap and Glory products are 3 for 2 right now at boots. If not I can highly recommend Righteous Body Butter, Flake Away body scrub, Fab Pore 15 minute facial, Hand Food… you get the gist.
