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'?


  1. Since you mentioned that you got these the other day, I refound the love I have for my soap and glory scrubs! My skin feels fantastic and ready for some sun in Croatia! I was never keen on the face mask found it too greasy but agree that it smells gorgeous! xx



  3. i've never tried these products before, but they look great! i'd love to try them! :)

  4. I did the same, I have dry skin too though and didn't realise that the Scrub your nose in it was targeted at oily skin. Like you, it was a bit of an impulse buy and I didn't do any research. I do like it though but will probably only use it once a week or something as to not dry my skin out too much! I am a new follower :) - would love for you to check my blog out at some point.

  5. Ciao Bella,
