Beautiful skinfinish! It gives my cheeks a beautiful flushed gold sheen and although it looks really shimmery in the pan, it actually doesn't leave a lot of glitter on the skin. The product is sheer but buildable to get more of that beautiful gold.

On my fair (almost translucent!) skin I find that Soft & Gentle is the perfect mineral highlighter for when I want a soft wash of pale gold/shimmery colour. It's a great day highlighter as it doesn't offer too much colour just a subtle wash or at least on my skin tone, however it is buildable (I find it works best when building the colour with a duo-fibre stippling brush or face brush). The great part about this product is you can apply it wet which works best if you want a gorgeous pale gold highlight at night. Soft & Gentle does tend to fade, not so much when you apply it wet (depending on your skin!) and there can be a bit of fall out of in the pan (as is the case with most mineral based products) Overall for me it's a must have highlighter (:

By Jade 7 years ago.

Soft and Gentle is a highlighter within the Mineralize Skinfinish family. It appears champagne and very shimmery/glittery in the pan - on my skin, it is more reflective sheen with noticeable warmth and gold-ness. It is a bit much for daytime wear, so I mostly wear it at night. I frequently get positive comments when I wear this, but they're usually along the lines of "you're very pretty!" as opposed to "I love your makeup". I personally love this product. It's very golden and shimmery, so won't be for everyone.
