Soap and Glory

Hurray, another post on my newly fixed laptop! *small cheer* And I'm going to chat on about something you probably all know quite a lot more than me about - Soap and Glory. I made my first Soap and Glory buys a while ago now, on an ill fated shopping trip early on in my uni life, before I realised I had a budget. It was nice while it lasted! I've always really fancied buying Soap and Glory products, because I hear so many nice reviews about the smell - I'm a sucker for nice smelling things - and also because the packaging is just so pretty! I know it's terrible to buy things simply because the packaging is nice but oh I can't help it...

Luckily, I love them to bits!

The products were on 3 for 2 offer in Boots when I bought them, although sadly I'm not sure they still are. Obviously, 3 for 2 grabbed me, and I had to buy three, so I'm now the proud owner of 'Clean On Me' body wash, 'Flake Away' salt scrub, and 'Butter Yourself' body cream.

'Clean On Me' shower gel/body wash. Okay, first, I love the names of these things! And now that's out of the way, I can actually talk about the product. It smells amazing. No, really, it does. It's fruity and fresh, great to wake up with in morning, but also not too much of a kick, so I really enjoy using it on lovely girly pampering nights. I wasn't entirely convinced at first as to whether I liked it or not, but I think that's because I'd heard so many amazing things that anything was going to be disappointing straight away. Over the time I've been using it though it's grown on me so much, and now I can't stop smelling it. It really clings to you too, I find, unlike some body washes which you can't smell the minute you rinse them off, which is a massive bonus.

'Flake Away' salt scrub - This stuff also smells amazing. It's much sweeter than the body wash, I think, but there's also a sort of fruity tang to it. I can't really describe smells, so I'll just leave it at great :p I have really quite sensitive skin, so I always worry about scrubs like this, in case the grains irritate my legs, but this hasn't so far. It feels lovely as an exfoliating scrub, and although I'm not sure it's a miracle worker in terms of making my legs baby smooth, I would definitely buy it again. It also lasts forever, it looks like I've barely made a dent in the surface so far!

'Butter Yourself' body cream - Sadly, I'm not as much of a fan of the smell of this one. I think it smells more chemical and medicinal than the others - there's an odd tinge to it - but, that said, it does still smell nice. Just not fantastic. That's balanced out for me though by the fact that I may be in love with it. It has a very thick, creamy consistency, but it soaks into my skin quickly, and doesn't leave my legs feeling greasy or oily, so I can't really complain. I just wish it had the smell of 'Clean On Me'!

That's all for now folks, but I'll be much less busy this week so hopefully some more posts will be coming your way!
