Soap and Glory Cloud of Dreams Whipped Night Cream

(post contains affiliate links)

 It's been a while since I've bought facial skincare from Soap and Glory. Probably years actually! I once had a bottle of the Peaches and Clean cleanser (quite nice if memory serves) and the infamous Glow Job tinted moisturiser with the little spheres of pigment that burst on application and adapt to your skin tone. I think my last purchase before now was actually the Night and Flight Moisture Miracle cream - you can read the review for that here.

Cloud of Dreams is a relatively new moisturiser but the smell of it is incredibly nostalgic - it's that sort of sweet, citrus-leaning scent that many Soap and Glory products have and I'm pretty sure Glow Job smelled exactly the same. It really took me back in time for a moment- I love how fragrance can have that effect.

Housed in an airless pump with a hygienic press down lid, the moisturiser dispenses out of the top in a cloud (flower?) for a nice touch. The whipped formula is so light it's almost soufflé-like, and, if I'm perfectly honest, feels like an absolute pleasure to apply.

Designed for normal and/or dry skin types, the night cream is spiked with hydrating Hyaluronic Acid, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter and Coconut Oil.

It also features humectant Glycerin (third ingredient after water and emollient Myristal Myristate, a fatty acid that comes from coconut and palm kernel oils).

With humectant and emollient Vitamin B5 acts as an anti-inflammatory while Ceramides lock in moisture.

The instructions say to use a 'grape sized' amount of product but I use probably about half that- just a quick press of the pump dispenses the right amount for me and it's definitely not quite grape-sized.

The cloud-like cream absorbs fairly quickly and leaves skin feeling soft and smooth to the touch almost immediately. There's no greasy feeling or worry about the product transferring onto pillows while I snooze either, just the result of waking up with comfortable skin with a slight glow.

You can find Soap and Glory Cloud of Dreams Whipped Night Cream at Boots for £14, where it's often on special or part of some kind of promotion.
