Soap & Glory?! Or Soap and Gory?! We'll see!

For years now, I've avoided Soap & Glory. I still don't like the smell of their products BUT I gave in because of my friends' great reviews! 
Now I'm sat here... in my little room trying to avoid admitting defeat. I love an item from Soap & Glory's range.
I am in love with their Breakfast Scrub... as you can clearly see!
The Breakfast Scrub by Soap & Glory (£9.50, Boots)

I think I love this more because it doesn't have the usual Soap & Glory smell!
I think I'm the only person in the world who cannot stand their original scent.
This smells of maple... yes, you read correctly... MAPLE. I want to eat it so badly.
I use this twice a week in rotation with my Body Shop exfoliation body brush... I don't want to scare the life out of my skin!
It's has lasted for 4 months so far and I think it still has 1 to go!
Definitely worth the money. Deffffffinitely.
*sniffs it*

L-R: Hand Food (£5.00, Boots) & Heel Genius (£5.50, Boots)

Okay, this is my third Hand Food! It's lovely and my hands have never been softer BUT that could also be my almond hand cream from The Body Shop... which smells so much better too!
Once I've finished all three tubes, I won't be buying anymore! I just don't love it as much as everyone else does. And I find that if you accidentally squeeze just a smidge more than a pea-sized amount... you're rubbing it into my hands for ages! 
Onto Hell Genius... I... love... it.
The biggest and only negative about this is that it smells worse than Hand Food. It smells so horrible BUT I can ignore that in this case because it's the best foot cream I've ever used!
I put a lot on before bed and then put my little moisturising socks on top and in the morning my feet are softer than a feather brushing against a cherub's chubby cheek.
And the packaging on it is gorgeous!

I got this as a gift off my mum for Christmas and they're still full! I don't have a price for them because they came in a set that Boots just seemed to sell at Christmas.
They're both in handy (no pun intended!) pump-top bottles! I leave these on my dresser in their metal holder so I can just pump on the go! 
The packaging is adorable so I don't mind them taking up space in my room.
Both have the usual Soap & Glory scent.
Last forever!

So, I'm not the biggest Soap & Glory fan (excluding the cosmetic line, it's amazing)!
I'll be walking past 90% of their products in Boots unless they change the smell!

Off to work I go!

  1. I literally just used Breakfast Scrub for the first time today and was going to do a post about it because I didn't think anybody used it and then I came across yours! The smell is amazing :) I love how I come out of the shower smelling like pancakes...I'm officially obsessed.
    I completely agree with you about the normal Soap and Glory smell. I've read so many reviews where people are raving about the smell of the Righteous Butter but it doesn't really do it for me.
    Great post :)


    1. At last! Someone who use The Breakfast Scrub! I cannot believe I've not seen one review on it. It's amazing!
      I cannot stand the smell of the Righteous Butter. Yuck!


Thank you so much for the comment and I promise to reply as soon as possible!
Have a lovely day!
