Soap And Glory product selection – my ultimate evening treats.
Winter brings dark days and long evenings and bubble-bath.
With the cold and the dark, it is only natural that we should use nice bath products to give ourselves a lift. And with a Christmas haul to explore I was able to do just that. Someone who knows me very well bought me a tin of Soap And Glory wonders. It is round as a drum and lined with tissue-paper and contains a whole selection of treats.
So how have I been getting on with the products?
Like a dream. I haven’t sampled everything yet, but those have opened have become integral to my evening routine. Soap And Glory is just a bit special. It fills the niche between luxury bath stuff and day-to-day regular products. The vintage feel to the labels is instantly recognisable and I am a fan of their pinks and oranges and unashamed love of all things peaches’n’cream.
Here are my thoughts on four Soap And Glory products.
Clean On Me – creamy shower gel
If you’re looking for a pre-bedtime shower treat, this one is for you.
Clean On Me is like a shower-gel with extra moisturising cream. It feels smooth as it rubs on and bubbles up into a perfect lather. Once rinsed, it leaves my skin silky-shiny. The gel has a gentle orange smell which is more like orange-oil mixed with vanilla than a full-on tangerine. It only takes a few squirts in the palm for a full massage.
A lovely day-to-day treat.
The Scrub Of Your Life – body scrub
A body scrub which doesn’t take your skin off? Sign me up.
There are two types of body scrubs – the heavy duty and the daily helper. This is a daily, a body buffer rather than a scrub, but I love it for that because it allows me to add a different texture to my daily routine. It comes in a handy squeeze tube (yay to no extra plastic toppers) and comes out as a thick gel layered with orange beads.
The scent put me in mind of a walk through an orchard. Think mandarin and strawberries and vanilla and amber. It is a dreamy, fruity scent which is much stronger than the Clean On Me shower gel.
Afterwards I felt fresh, much more so than after an ordinary shower, and that feeling lasted for hours.
Hand Food – Hand Cream
A scented hand cream which keeps my hands soft. Magic.
I have the kind of skin which throws up a reaction to the tiniest hint of artificial ingredients. Especially on my skin. I use olive oil soaps, unscented hand cream and even have to buy a specific brand of washing-up liquid.
This is why Hand Cream is such a revelation. It not only keeps my hands in a reasonable state, it actually hydrates them. It is so light too, and not the tiniest bit greasy. The scent is described as marshmallow although it put me in mind of strawberry ice-cream.
Melty Talented – Multi-use balm
This is a multi-talented pot of glory.
It looks like wax but is more like oil to the touch. On application, it is light and shiny and nourishing. I use it on my cuticles most of all, but it is also there for dry elbows, scaly-skin, and emergency lip balm.
The almond and mango scents come out above all the others, although there is a hint of coconut.
The tin is really useful to slip into a handbag or travel case. It would be a great product to carry around for any little irritation.
All products featured were Christmas gifts from family members and I have no affiliation with Soap And Glory.
