Soap and Glory Hocus Focus Review | Skin Illuminator

Get Luminous Skin With a Dash of Hocus Focus

What's not to love about a product that describes itself as "visual flaw-softening"? Soap & Glory's Hocus Focus (£13) is, in essence, an illuminating lotion, with light-reflecting particles that help to create the illusion of flawless, dewy skin. This is a brand that doesn't take itself too seriously, and when Soap & Glory refers to the shimmer within this product as "Lightscramble luminospheres," we know it's done with tongue firmly in cheek. The mix of warm and cool shimmer particles sits in a base that somehow suits everyone when blended (even though it's a scary shade of beige in the bottle). Our favourite way to use this is to add a pump to tinted moisturiser for the ultimate lightweight base, but it also works neat or mixed into foundation. Use it sparingly with a tiny brush to turn powder eye shadows into shimmer liners, or add a few dabs along the collarbone to make your skin shimmer in a strapless dress.
