Review: Soap & Glory

I always pass by the Soap& Glory products at Target but never pick any up. Finally about a month ago i picked up the Scrub Triangle Mini gift set which includes Flake Away, The Righteous Butter and Clean on me shower gel, and as well as Greatest Scrub of All.

The Soap & Glory gift set can be purchased for $9.99. That is a good deal so you can sample the products for less before you buy the full size product.

Clean on Me creamy clarifying shower gel is soothing and cleansing. However, i didn't find this product to be outstanding. To me it is just the same as any cream based shower get, nothing to fancy about it. The scent to me is on the masculine side, my husband liked the smell, but i can not say the same about myself. The full size bottle costs $9.99

The Righteous Butter is smooth and creamy. It is a body butter, but feels more like thick lotion..if that makes any sense. When applied it leaves the skin feeling smooth and moisturized. It has the same scent as the Clean on Me shower gel. Again this product is not outstanding there are many other products out in the market that are just as good or better. The full size product cost's $14.99

The stand out product of the gift set was Flake Away. Flake away is a body scrub that worked magic on my dry skin. I have never used a body scrub before using this product and i am now addicted. There are large grains of salt that exfoliate the dead/dry skin on the body. And it did just that. I used it from my neck down and my skin felt like a baby afterwards. I never knew my skin could feel so soft. I having been using Flake Away twice a week for a month and my skin is smooth and soft and i will continue the use of this product. Another area on the body that the scrub works wonders on is the feet. I took some product and massages it into my feet and exfoliated the dry skin and left them feeling smooth as well. The full size jar can be purchased for $9.99 and is worth every penny in my opinion.

The next item i picked up from Soap & Glory was their Greatest Scrub of All. It a facial scrub that is meant for all skin types. Now I wouldn't say this is the great scrub of all time, but it is really good. There are tiny little beads that burst when you press them on the skin. This is a very gentle scrub and shouldn't irritate your skin. The directions say to use it 2-4 times a week or oily skin and less if you have dry/sensitive skin. I have been using it everyday since i purchased it. My skin is left feeling exfoliated and smooth. However, this is not the scrub to use if you are looking for blackhead reduction. Before this i was using St. Ives Apricot scrub to remove blackheads and it was working, but the Soap & Glory and little to no effect on my blackheads. This is the main reason i don't think it is the greatest facial scrub. If you are looking for a gentle scrub to use daily this would be ideal in my opinion. This scrub cost $12.99.

All Soap & Glory products can be purchased at Target. For other info about where to buy Soap & Glory check their website.

I always walk past Soap& Glory in Boots. I WILL get round to trying some of the range someday! Flake Away sounds interesting and I don't have a body scrub at the moment ... hmmm.
