Soap & Glory Solar Powder review

Soap & Glory Solar Powder Review we need a heavy dose of bronzer to fake that glow, but sometimes the occasion calls for something a little more subtle, and that’s why you need the Soap & Glory Solar Powder in your makeup kit.

Solar Powder comes in one, universal shade but it is a two-toned bronzer, one lighter and one darker so you can either mix them together for an all over glow or use the darker shade to contour and the lighter shade for a subtle bronze.

You might find that when you first open the bronzer, there might be a slight hint of pink highlighter on top, but just two swirls of the brush will unveil the matte powders underneath. We’re not entirely sure why it’s there, just be sure to know that these are matte powders, so if you’re looking for something shimmery, this isn’t the powder for you.

The formula of the powders is really excellent too, the powder is not chalky and it feels buttery and creamy meaning it’s a dream to apply.

The Solar Powder product is really pigmented too, and just a light dusting will give excellent colour pay off. It applies smoothly and blends effortlessly into the skin. Although the colour itself is very pigmented, the great thing is that these powders are very subtle, so there’s no need to worry that you can go too heavy handed and you’ll end up looking like a Wotsit. The colour is very natural and enhancing, this is a perfect product for pale skin tones as well.

For £11 you get an impressive 9g of product, a decent sized mirror and adorable packaging - although it could be a little sturdier instead of cardboard.

Soap And Glory Solar Powder 2Pros

Great pigmentation, beautiful natural colour, blendable, creamy powder, great value for money


The packaging isn't the best, but this is definitely something you can get over

Bottom line

The Soap and Glory Solar Powder has a pretty, sophisticated bronzing effect on the skin, it’s a subtle bronzer, which means it’s perfect for pale skin tones, but will look gorgeous to add some definition to darker skin tones too.

If you’re looking for a less intense bronzer, then this is the product for you. Both halves of the bronzer, one darker than the other, have great pigmentation and a butter-like consistency, which means this is a dream to apply. It’s soft, gentle and beautifully bronze.
