Soap & Glory Shower Must Haves!

Of course a soak in the bath is more indulgent and often more appealing but to kick start the morning
or when time is of the essence a quick blast under a powerful shower is the best cleansing option.
I don't often talk about Soap & Glory products mainly because I haven't tried that many items from
their vast range ( I still haven't got round to picking up some of their cosmetic items) but what I have tried
have slowly but surely wriggled their way into my affections or at least pride of place in my shower!

Soap & Glory have a distinctive packaging style in which pretty much every item in the range
comes presented in sugary pink plastic tubs or tubes which a slight vintage pin up feel thanks to
the black and white female imagery that accompanies the products.
Another well know or trademark element if you will from Soap & Glory is the scent each product
is fragrenced with. I'm sure some love the scent and others loathe it, personally i'm not swayed one way
or the other. Much like the packaging it is distinctive and feminine and best summed up I'd say it is a blend
of both floral and aquatic accords, it is rather difficult to sum up so I do suggest testing a Soap & Glory
product before jumping to any scent based conclusions haha!

Anyway on to what I use in the shower...

Soap & Glory Flake Away - Body Scrub

Nothing gets the blood flowing and awakens me quite like a good body scrub
and in my opinion the best body scrubs are those that have a gritty texture.
This particular scrub has the most perfect consistency, a thick jelly like substance that is littered with 
well sized gritty particles with a slight only feel that buff the skin to a state of smoothness. 
As I mentioned the base that the scrub is suspended in is slightly oily but it does wash off a
and doesn't leave behind any yucky residue.
Due to it being a thicker scrub it is rather concentrated so a little goes a long way
but it is powerful enough to pretty much scrub away any fake tanner based mishaps!
For an extra strength scrub use this with a body brush and prepare to be dazzled.

Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter - Body Butter

After a good scrub you have to replenish any lost moisture and this is where The Righteous Butter steps in.
The Righteous Butter is a lighter than air formula which moisturises the skin without being heavy
or taking forever and a day to settle into the skin.
I particularly like to use this formula after a dip in the pool as I find it restores my skin particularly 
my legs from the drying effect that chlorine tends to have.
It can also double up as a hand cream in cases of emergencies!

  1. I love it. The flake away is my most favourite from their range. Brings back sweet memories :)

  2. I haven't tried anything from the soap & glory range but 'flake away' looks like something I would definitely use and love!xo

  3. I love these two as well! Have you tried their hands cream, that's also really good!

  4. im addicted to

  5. I love soap and glory and have a lot of their range. All high quality, indulgent and smell fantastic. I also recommend sexy motherpucker lip plumping gloss and soap and clarity face wash. Lovely stuff! X

  6. Im possibly the only person that isn't a fan. As much as I think that the products work well, I can't bear the scent! I know am in the minority here x

    1. Nope you're definitely not he only one!! I like their products that have the "traditional" smell - the Breakfast Scrub is GORGEOUS and their Face Soap and Glory is a great face wash :)

  7. I'm a huge Flake Away fan! I have two massive pots of the Righteous Butter but I never use it for some reason, I tend to prefer fruitier smells xxx

  8. I have Flake Away and The Righteous Butter, i love them both, they will always be a repurchase :) Ax

  9. after you've finished the flake away scrub, you need to pick up the breakfast scrub, it smells AMAZING! like maple syrup :)

  10. I love them both! They smell divine :-)

  11. I loooooove Soap & Glory, the righteous butter is my favourite thing from their range.

  12. I am absolutely LOVING Soap & Glory at the mo & am working my way through quite a few of their products from a big set I got last Xmas (yes, only now! Lol!) So far my fav is definitely the body butter, one of the best ones I've ever tried! Love how deeply moisturizing it is yet so light! :D

    Love Aysh xoxo

  13. My favourite body scrub is the 'Breakfast Scrub'. It smells amazing (not the same scent as their other products - has maple scent) & works so well.

  14. Since getting the 'Big Splendour' at Christmas I have been in love with Soap & Glory, my absolute favourite product of theirs is the 'Pulp Friction' scrub - it is amazing, it exfoliates like no other I have tried! I'm also a fan of the 'Righteous Butter' xxx

  15. Love Soap & Glory products! Haven't tried the body butter yet but is really keen to try it, now especially, it seems delicious! :) x

  16. I cant stand the scent of Soap & Glory its to heavy and makes me feel sick, having said that the JLS perfume KISS smells very similar but its sweeter and I love it so I guess if it was a bit sweeter Id love it, also I tried their body wash and I reacted badly to it because I ended ip coveted in a rash that lasted 6 days before disappearing :(

  17. I love Flake Away - am currently using the Scrub Of Your Life but will definitely be going back to Flake Away when it's finished because it smells nice but doesn't feel like it does such a good job. From reading the comments above - who knew they made so many scrubs?!! The Righteous Butter is too light for me, I prefer my body butters as thick as can be.

  18. I've been keen on trying Soap and Glory products and these two look like winners! I'm always on the lookout for a good scrub and I think I'll need to try Flake Away now :)
