S&G One Heck Of A Blot Foundation | Review

Soap & Glory have the most gorgeous bath and shower products, and I have heard brilliant things about their powder, SuperCat eyeliner and Thick & Fast mascara. I am a big fan of their skincare products, particular the products that are geared towards people with oily/combination skin, aka me, such as the No Clogs Allowed face mask. For this reason, I was excited to check out their new foundation. The One Heck Of A Blot (£12) foundation comes in a measly four shades, which off the bat is very disappointing to me. Finding a foundation in the "drugstore" is hard enough as is when you're testing dirty bottles on your hand so having a decent range of shades available is a no-brainer.

Aside from this, Nic from pixiwoo gave the foundation a glowing review on the YouTube channel she shares with her older sister, so I decided to try it out for myself. I tested the two darkest shades, Happy Medium was too light and Caramel seemed closest to my skin tone, although in retrospect it seems too dark. In future, I would suggest go for the lighter shade than the darker shade as you can always warm it up with bronzer. 


I didn't enjoy this foundation, I thought it was very yellow, but a cool yellow, I would have liked a little more warmth. Of course, the colour was all wrong but that can't be helped with such a sparse selection of shades to choose from. This foundation is said to be suitable for oily/combination skin types. It claims to conceal pores, fine lines and redness, as well as having a wear-time of twelve hours and a shine-free finish.

Another claim made is that it doesn't look heavy on the skin, I thought it did. The application was patchy for me, it wasn't as easy to blend as I would have hoped. In addition, I like my foundations to be very lightweight and comfortable to wear, to feel like nothing on the skin, this felt like a layer on my skin, most likely because I couldn't blend it as seamlessly as I would like. Maybe with a Beauty Blender you get a better finish, I am not sure. I wouldn't recommend this foundation, I might be willing to try it again if they bring out more colours. Have you tried it? What are your thoughts?

@ummbaby
I have quite a few foundations that I love from the drugstore that are cheaper than the £12 this foundation retails for, if you would like a post on my favourite foundations from the drugstore or otherwise then let me know in the comments. I would love to hear your suggestions for future posts. Have a lovely week. Take care.

  1. I really love the powder of this range, so I was intrigued by the foundation! £12 does sound a little pricey though xx

    1. I just wish they had more shades and then I would be willing to maybe try it out again. It is a little pricey though. Thank you for commenting!

  2. I saw pixiwoos video that mentioned this as well and considered trying it, it's such a shame it didn't work out for you after their glowing review

    1. Yeah I was gutted, but it should've raised a few flags to be honest, as Nic has dry skin and this foundation is actually specifically marketed towards oily and combination skin types (my skin type).So the fact that she liked it so much should have made me realise that it might not be the best choice for my skin. Thank you for your comment, lovely!

  3. Ah I think I'll be giving this one a miss, £12 for a not good foundation doesn't seem worth it. Can't believe they have such a limited colour range to start with, I'm sure they'll extend it over time but not great for first impressions!

    1. Yeah it is a missable foundation as it stands at the moment, I think girls with drier skin might really like it though. A lot of the other products in this range are really lovely, however, I know many who adore their primer. Thank you for your comment, Sally!
