Soap and Glory-ously Smooth Skin...


I thought I would share with you a couple of Soap and Glory products I picked up the other day in Boots.  Boots were, hopefully still are, doing 3 for 2 on Soap and Glory products (excluding cosmetics).

Being essentially walking dry skin in the cold months (and all the other months) I always jump at the chance for smoother skin.  So I picked up this gorgeous scrub and body butter.  Oh my God! I love these two.  The scrub has the most delicious lime scent, which is so refreshing, the smell makes me want to eat it. But I won't.  Despite being a sugar scrub it is gentle enough to use quite a lot, which I have been.
The body butter has a lovely vanilla scent, which normally I don't like but it's very subtle.  It's very thick but absorbs into the skin quite quickly.  I have been using these two quite a bit since I got them and my skin feels great.  Neither has that typical 'Soap and Glory smell', which I love, but I know not everybody is keen on.  So check them out if you're one of those people. 

For my 'get one free', I chose this face scrub/mask on an impulse.  I don't have much to say about this as I've used it once but then I got Lush's Ultrabland Cleanser, which I've been solely using to improve my skin (post to come).  However, that said, the one time I used it I did enjoy it.  It has a refreshing minty kind of scent, it feels very strong on the skin (which for my dryness isn't the best at the moment). But I do think it will really help cleanse pores... so I do look forward to using it in the future.

Have you tried any of these products, what do you think?  Any opinions on the 'Scrub your nose in it'?

Zip it... #OOTN

top: republic
discopants: missguided £25.99


Yet again it has been a while since I've blogged (so busy with uni).
So this was another unplanned post hence the instagram pictures.

Anyway... I got this cute crop top in Republic.  They've had huge sales on lately, due to being in administration and there has been a few beauties to find at cheeap prices.  This top was marked at about £16, reduced to £7 and when I got to the till it was about £4. I love it when that happens!
Essentially it is a crop top which unzips at the front and is kind of backless, I wish I had a picture of the back but I don't.  This paired perfectly with my discopants for a simple but effective night out outfit.

Have you found any gems in Republics sale?
