Beauty Review: Soap & Glory The Scrub Of Your Life

Seeing as how I have a huuuge toiletry stash (and because job hunting is driving me crazy), I figured that I should probably review some of it! And where better to start with than the product I started on yesterday, Soap & Glory's The Scrub Of Your Life...

I've got to admit that Soap & Glory is one of my 'things' - if I had to only use one toiletry brand for the rest of my life this would definitely be in the running. The products do what they say they will, smell fantastic and have the most gorgeous funky retro packaging. And I say that as someone who doesn't like pink! I've got a fair few of their products on the go at the moment, but as a lot of them are currently in the study at my parents' house waiting to be delivered to the flat tomorrow and I needed scrub yesterday I figured I'd break out The Scrub Of Your Life (as I've mentioned before I'm a sucker for a good pun).

As you can see it contains tiny little pink scrubby beads which help exfoliate, and goes into a nice creamy lather:

The scent, as with all Soap & Glory products, is beautiful - kind of floral, a bit powdery and generally a nice 'clean' smell. I also thought there was a stronger note of rose in the blend this time, more so than usual, which is great for me as I love rose fragrances.

In terms of how well it worked, I found that whilst it was nicely scrubby and got the job done, it wasn't as abrasive as Soap & Glory FlakeAway which I was using before. This is because of the 'moisture-foam formula', which translated from fancy product-speak seems to mean that it's more like a moisturising body wash with scrubby bits in it than a pure body scrub. I didn't feel like I needed to use body lotion after this so it's ideal for those mornings when you don't have time to moisturise or you're simply in a lazy mood.

All in all, I'd say this is a pretty great product as it's multi-functional and also does what it says on the tin by being exfoliating but without being too harsh, and is fantastic for everyday use or when you're a bit pressed for time. It's also very reasonably priced at £6.50 for 200ml, seeing as a little goes a long way - especially in comparison to FlakeAway which has a bit of a tendency to end up going down the plughole. Highly recommended.
