My Knight in shining Armour

Hello humans! Today I am reviewing a skin care product I've been using for, I'd say, a good 8 weeks (or more!). It is the Soap & Glory Night in Shining Armour cream. Having used it religiously in my regime for a good length of time, I have definitely formed my thoughts on it, so let's get into it!

Of course, Soap & Glory's gorgeous vintage-y packaging (though they have since redesigned their look to be more clean...haven't seen all of the new designs but IMO it's much less fun...). The cream is packaged in a rather substantial glass jar. It's quite heavy and a little bit luxurious feeling. It's a light, oyster, duo-chromey pink (?) which is very pretty. Very simple though! 

Now, I'm only 16, and probably not the greatest person to be reviewing this product, as it's main draw is its 'wrinkle-reducing' properties. I don't have any wrinkles, and while it doesn't hurt to prevent them, I am pretty early to the party. What I was looking for in this product though was pretty much a good night cream that would moisturise my skin well, no frills. So, while I can't comment on the ambitious claims on the box regarding wrinkles, I can say that this is a very nice moisturiser. I wouldn't say its 'plumping' but my skin does feel very soft and smooth, never tight or dry. The weather has been a bit cooler (not anymore, it's practically Summer already!) and generally my skin tends to get a bit drier. With the use of this product, there hasn't been a single dry or flakey patch on my skin at all! That is, aside from healing breakouts, but my skin is smooth and feels really hydrated! In comparison to the Origins Drink Up Intensive, neither is really more hydrating than the other, so I would say that this packs a punch in terms of moisture!

The texture of this cream is quite thick, but in my opinion it doesn't feel heavy at all, but it's definitely not lightweight. It sinks into the skin really well and quite quickly and gives an instant boost of moisture. A little goes a long way and it's very spreadable, but I generally use a pea-sized amount (just 'cos). I haven't tried too many night creams, but this one is definitely not suited for use in the day time. I have combination/oily skin and my skin does tend to get a bit oily as the night wears on, but I don't really have a problem with that as I'm just lounging around at home. Considering it's so moisturising, I really wouldn't expect anything less. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for oily-skinned gals, but you could definitely still use it.  

This has an interesting scent though. Generally, Soap & Glory products have amazing scents, but I am glad that this isn't heavily scented as I would be quite weary of putting that all over my face. It doesn't exactly smell like it has been purposely scented with no detectable 'fragrance' fragrance but it does smell, lightly though. Some people may dislike it but I don't find it offensive and it dissipates once it is absorbed.

I hope you guys found my review helpful! Overall, I really like this as a basic moisturiser that really gets my skin hydrated and happy! I don't believe this is available for purchase in Australia (just yet at least) but it's quite easily accessible online. I bought mine from eBay and paid about $28 which is not too bad for 50mL of product. We'll see about those wrinkle claims though ;) haha.

What's your favourite night cream?


  1. I'm always impressed when I see S&G products, they're packaging is just too cute! I really need to try out more of their products as well, especially their skincare/makeup!

    1. Theur packaging is/was SO adorable! I've only tried 3 products from them. I need to get more of their body stuff too!
