Why are people saying this product has a nice fragrance? Have I got a dodgy out of date one because mine smells funny..

Shyamane from Abudhabi said on 09/11/2013

I'm a Soap & Glory addict , but not happy with this product, it starts to flake off and I found it has a shimmer as well, don't know whether anybody else has noticed that ?? And made my face itchy , this is not what I expected from a moisturising balm, Extremely disappointed !!!

Love many of your body products but this facial one didn't love me. I came out in tiny blisters on my temples and upper lip, and have an itchy forehead. Back to Nivea and No 7 for my face!

vj from Northampton said on 30/08/2013

Huge fan of S&G but not impressed with this product. As others have said, it flakes off! Last thing I need is to put my foundation on and have my moisturiser flake off with it. And the smell is overpowering, floral like heather, made my eyes water. Would not recommend. Wont use again. Want my money back!

One of the best moisturisers I've ever purchased. It is a brilliant base for my make up and my skin looks and feels great.

Kamala from Canterbury said on 02/03/2013

I love this cream. It's probably the one beauty product I use every day religiously, it brightens my skin just like it says on the tin. Not greasy, but a subtle glow. My skin does also feel slightly tighter.

It mixes nicely with my liquid foundation which makes for a nice tinted moisturiser for those who don't want to wear loads of foundation and just want a subtle coverage.

Only downset is the flaking. I saw others mention in the reviews as well. When it dries, it sort of flakes or crumbles off. You can pretty much pick/scrape it off your face, its really odd.

However I am still going to go back and buy/use it again, just hopefully they fix the flakes.

Have just bought this product while on a special price and i like the smell very delicate not overpowering and must admit it made my skin very bright and very soft i'm 54 and i love it

Tiger Lily from Uk said on 23/12/2012

I love love love this balm... When I bought it ,I intended to use it as an occasional lift for my complexion,but once I put it on I was hooked. I love the consistency, and it definitely lives up to it's name. It gives you an instant radiance and soft glow, which doesn't look greasy or like you've been showering in shimmer. It works beautifully under liquid foundation, especially a satin or velvet finish foundation. I also like that the fragrance is different to their signature Soap and Glory smell. The aloe vera is invigorating and cooling.... I'm not sure but I feel there may be some peppermint in there too. This will definitely be replacing my moisturiser.

I agree with s&g addict.
I used is and usually look bee soap and glory no matter if it's from the bath and body range, skin are or cosmetics so pretty much got it all lol.
I got this as one of my first soap and glory products ove a year ago now, and I still have it because I can't bring myself to like it as much as I want to.
I have so many different ways of using it but it keeps flaking off! When it dries, if you touch your face it flakes off. I have seen a few reviews where people have had the same problem. It does look like it would illuminate but when on the skin you can't notice.
Also the smell is a let down for s&g, normally they have scents that are addictive but this one smells like grass.
Wll not buy again.

S&g addict from Eastbourne said on 18/07/2012

I bought this in a gift set and was really excited to use it! Loved the smell and was really light and refreshing to apply and thought I was on to a winner...however when it dries it seems to rub and almost shed off?! If I try to apply foundation over it, it's virtually impossible! It just cakes off in little bits if that makes sense? Anyone else having this problem? I'm gutted coz my skin looks lovely when I've rubbed it in...just the peeling that I'm not happy about...

Rachel from Bath said on 05/02/2012

This product is where i stop my search for moisterizer. I have combination skin which drives me mental as i seem to be breaking out in spots and having peeling dry skin at the same time......until i started using this. Now, now more spottiness and no more dry patches either. It feels silky not oily and the aloe vera definiately makes your face feel tingly and fresh! I am confidence enough in its power to go out into twon with nothing more than this on my face!

Bells from London said on 18/01/2012

It made my skin soft and smooth but I didn't notice my skin looking brighter or anything like that.

smithie from USA said on 12/12/2011

Fantastic daily moisturizer for any type of skin. It gives skin healthy bright radiant glow (do not expect shimmers) and feels so good once applied on. It has thicker consistency, but it is super smooth, lasts all day and soothes as well. Definitely a must if you crave beautiful luminous complexion

Laura from Birmingham said on 27/09/2011

I got this yesterday as I'd never seen this particular product before, I love all Soap & Glory body butters and since this product has three of them I just couldn't resist! All of the butters smell gorgeous and the packaging is just fab, I'm definitely buying another of these for my friend's birthday as they would make great gifts too! x

Jessica from Manchester said on 27/09/2011

This product has a gorgeous smell and leaves my face feeling lovely and soft and positively radiant!

Margaret from Cambridge said on 27/09/2011

As every product from S&G cosmetics range, "Bright Here, Bright Now" has it all: fantastic smell, catchy name and makes you feel good every day! I loved it from the first moment, it gives you very beautiful radiance which does not appear to be too strong and doesn't stand out too much which makes it look natural. It's the perfect glow you're looking for!

G from London said on 27/09/2011

Did nothing for my skin, not one bit. Claims to give instant radiance, my skin looked like nothing had been applied, disappointed by this item. A shame as I like Soap & Glory items, but for me this didn't do it.

Nicky from Sheffield said on 27/09/2011

I must confess that Bright Here Bright Now is THE only product I have found that actually does what it says it does. This product gives a fabulous glow to my battered with adult acne skin, plus now lets see.... where did my eye bags go?????? it evens out my complexion to perfection. I love you Soap and Glory. Thank you

Holly from London said on 27/09/2011

Gorgeous! I was looking for a moisturiser but thought I'd try something new. This is perfect! It makes my skin soft and gives it a soft glow. Definitely a good buy if you're bored of splodging the same old daily moisturiser on your skin. A refreshing change.

Julie from My make up lasts longer! said on 24/09/2011

I love this - it really does even out skin tone and when i use it under my foundation, my make up lasts longer! The one criticism I have is that is smells weird - if Soap & Glory can make it smell as gorgeous as some of their body butters it'd be amazing!
