Soap and Glory Collection


Hellooo!

I'm sitting here trying to think how to describe the smell of Soap and Glory...
Marshmallowy, floraly, vanilla-ry, sweet...
I can't pinpoint it, It's just Soap and Glory!
There isn't anything else like it.
I'm sure you have all given these products a sniff at some point but if you haven't then you MUST!

I have been using this brand for a while but I got a super, mega, huge gift pack jobby for christmas from my Dad and I love it so  much. I have been using all this stuff for months now and it's still not finished, (which is impressive) but it's running low so I though I'd do this post now before I have to say goodbye! (And then say hello to new ones!)




S&G say: 'It has softening shea butter and aloe vera. A body moisturizing formula so virtuous you might swear you're wearing velvet.'

I say: This is my favourite product out of them all! I don't know about velvet but it leaves my skin really soft, smelling lovely and it's not sticky either. A little bit goes a long way so it's worth the price as well!



S&G say: 'Non-greasy hydrating hand cream with shea butter, macadamia oil and marshmallow.'

I say: Wait did I say the body butter was my favourite, can this be my top favourite too? I love it just as much, so moisturizing and again, not sticky or greasy. I use this whenever I do my nails and it makes my cuticles really soft.




S&G Say: 'Better than a pedicure? It renovates rough feet in a single overnight session, doubles as a foot cream. Featuring allantoin, glycerin, macadamia oil, menthol, bilberry, orange and lemon fruit acid smoothers.'

I say: This does exactly what it says, and it smells like peppermint! If only I could remember to do it every night!




S&G Say: 'Get fresher, smoother and softer skin with fig powder, pumice, peppermint oil, lemonade tree liquid, orange waterjuice™ and vitaminballs™ (A,C,E). Scented with our new Fruitigo™ fragrance.'

I Say: lemonade tree? hmm...I really like this, it smells different to the other products but it's still really sweet and lovely! It's a really good scrub because it has a sort of clay like consistency with big and small pumice bits to scrub the skin. It goes on to the skin really thick and turns into a foam as you scrub it in. It leaves my skin really soft and the smell lasts for ages!



S&G Say: 'For super clean, fresh and bright skin, you can rely on face soap and clarity, 3-in-1 daily detox vitamin C facial wash. A high-tech, gentle non-drying foaming facial wash, formulated with complexion-friendly, easy-rinse surfactants and special SUPERFRUIT™ PLUM skin brightening complex.'

I Say: I haven't used a great amount of this because I have been using my Body Shop Tea Tree Face Wash recently which I spoke about here. But I have tried this a few times and been really happy with it, it's nice and light and it smells a bit more like the Pulp Friction than the other products. It foams really nicely but as I have not used this continuously I can't say if it actually brightens the skin or not.



S&G Say: 'Featuring notes of bergamot, blackcurrant, magnolia, freesia, vanilla and musk. Application of this mist may bestow the wearer with a newfound and haughty kind of self-confidence, triggering uncontainable fits of flirtatiousness. Mist at your own risk.' 

I Say: I'm not sure about fits of flirtatiousness but I like this! It smells lovely and is great to keep in my bag for work, it lasts for a good few hours which is quite impressive for a body spray and it's very light and summery!



S&G Say: 'Scented with a tempting blend of bergamot, peach, strawberry, jasmine, mandarin and musk. Sensible men have been driven to dizziness by this moisturising scented mist.'

I Say: There has deffo been a name change, as you can see mine is called flirtigo but on the website it is called Girligo. Oh well, I still love this, it's a really light moisturizer that comes out in a spray. Almost like a watery consistency, it just melts into the skin and leaves it feeling fresh and soft, and it smells amazing!



S&G Say: 'Our deluxe formula comes with a built-in body lotion plus lemon balm, mallow extracts and moisture-magnetising skin conditioners to smooth you while they soothe you. Scented with our Original Pink™ fragrance.'

I Say: Who doesn't love a good bath? This has the signature Soap and Glory Marshmallow-y scent, it's really nice and bubbly and you only need to use a tiny bit each bath so it is very good value. The smell isn't overpowering but it does stay on your skin after the bath, not sure I felt overly moisturized though.


So that's all! 
I love the Soap and Glory brand, the packaging is so pretty and eye-catching, they have a great humour in their product descriptions, they don't test on animals AND all their packaging is recyclable!

I have tried one or two of the Makeup products too which I love and will be expanding my collection, but I haven't ventured into the land of Soap and Glory skincare or haircare as of yet!
Has anyone got any recommendations for anything new I could try?

Thanks for reading!
