Review: Soap & Glory Hocus Focus

A very long while ago now, I received this product for reviewing purposes. I know I have been a bad blogger recently, but I have so many products that I want to review and so little time on my hands that sometimes it takes months to review something.

Anyway, Hocus Focus was a new product when I went to Dublin in September and it immediately grabbed my attention as it is marketed as
An INSTANT visual flaw-softening lotion with long-wearing LIGHTSCRAMBLE™ lumisphere technology that mixes mica light-diffusing powders with high-tech encapsulated soft focus pearls and leaves the wearer looking ‘candle lit’ and ready to glow!
Its specially blended luxury skin smoothing emollient complex gives a beautiful silky sensual feel and sheer look to the skin, whilst helping to lock moisture in too. It softens, smoothes and illuminates the skin, just where you need a little soft focus.
 You can really use this product to reduce the appearence of large pores and uneven pigmentation (says on the package, wrinkles as well, but I don't have any wrinkle, so I can't comment on that), and it will work very well. You can put it straight on your face, after you have moisturized your skin, or you can also mix it with your foundation for a candle-lit, glowing effect.
What it does is reflecting the light due to its perlescent particles, diffusing a lovely iridescence on your face, and destracting the eye from imperfections.
Also this is an extremely good highlighter! That's my favorite way of using it: as a highlighter on my cheekbones, browbone, cupid's bow.
The consistency is rather liquid and runny, and it appears as a dense white rose lotion with a pretty iridescence to it. It also has a gorgeous smell.

Soap&Glory Hocus Focus retails for £ 12 and comes in a 30 ml-sturdy-glass-bottle. I really think it will be a great alternative to Benefit's highlighters (especially if you find them to be too shimmery) and for a half the price. You can never go wrong with Soap & Glory. Here is another hit!

Have you tried this product? Let me know what you think of it in the comments below.

  1. bello, mi intriga... *_* Avevo pensato di prendere il fondo layla luce, per illuminare il volto le volte in cui mi sveglio con le fattezze di una neandhertaliana insonne a dieta, però potrei anche pensare ad un prodotto illuminante da mischiare al fondo normale...

  2. Not tried it yet, but I think I need to get some. Love this blog post! :)
