Hi My Lovelies,
I told you guys I was on a roll with these blog posts. I secretly wish I could post everyday but I need to work which is what pays the bills so I can only post when I am free. I received some goodies from Soap and Glory from my lovely friend on my birthday and the contents include The Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub and the Heel Genius Foot Cream and I was really pleased. I will be reviewing in the Foot Cream in a separate post. I have actually never tried a Body Scrub*gasps in shock*..I know, I know but that's because my skin is silky smooth (I kid, I kid!!). I just never thought of using it. I have used a facial scrub on my face in the past but i quit because it was too abrasive. Now, I only use micro beads facial scrubs as other scrubs are too much for my skin. I digress, again. Let's just dive in...
The Soap and Glory Brand
Soap and Glory was founded by Marcia Kilgore, a celebrity facialist who has performed thousands of facials on celebrities including Madonna, Demi Moore, Cameron Diaz to mention a few. The brand has a range of products ranging from skincare, body care and makeup. They are well known for the fun names they choose for their products and the witty clever packaging they use and this has worked for them because most of their products always catch my eyes while perusing Boots or Super Drug stores here in the UK.
Sugar Crush Body Scrub
As stated earlier,I am quite new to the whole body scrub business but I really like the Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Scrub and I think it's important to have a good experience because I can now venture deeper into the lovely world of body scrubs. It comes in a 300 ml tub which looks really nice in bath/shower. I kind of like the name as well; Sugar Crush because it reminds me of my favourite game on my iPhone which is the ever addictive Candy Crush Saga..:-). I also like the pink packaging as it's not a very girlie pink but a warm pink that I think is agreeable with many people.
I believe most scrubs should have granules which act as the physical exfoliators and the Soap and Glory Sugar Crush uses Smashed Brown Sugar as its main exfoliant and it does not feel too abrasive to the skin. It is also enriched with Sweet Lime, Almond Oil and Macadamia Grains. I actually feel hungry having listed all these ingredients above and I have the same experience when I use it. It smells absolutely delicious..so delicious you may actually want to eat it.
As advised by Soap and Glory on the tub, I use this in the shower at least 3 times a week and I have been loving it. I wet my body a little so it's damp and takes well to the scrub and I gently massage this usually starting from my feet which looks a bit dodgy now with the dry weather. I leave it on for some time while I attend to other parts of my body then I rinse off. It smells amazing and leaves a slight scent to my body after use (of course, this disappears after a while, how sad because i quite like the scent). It has a slight granular texture but it's not abrasive and I believe it is fine for people with sensitive skin although you are advised not to use it on open skin/cuts/wounds, etc.. which is really common sense anyway.
I like it. A Lot. It leaves my feet really smoother than when I was not using it. No matter how much moisturiser or foot cream I use, the skin on my feet still looks/feels dry and different to other parts of my body. It has not completely changed but the scrub has helped to improve the appearance and feel of the skin around it. I would definitely repurchase if this finishes. I hope you enjoyed this lil' post and let me know if you have tried any Soap and Glory products and which is your favourite?...xx
