Soap and Glory Series: Body Scrubs

Hey Everyone ♥
If you've been following my blog for a while you may remember back in May I published part one of my Soap and Glory series which was about shower gels. Well, that series may have slipped my mind and therefore there were no follow up posts...until now that is! I finally have part 2 to share which is on body scrubs and I promise I won't keep you waiting for so long for the rest of the instalments! If you weren't following me back in May, I created this series to give mini reviews on each product I own from Soap & Glory as I have a lot and love them all so I thought this would be a good way to share my thoughts on some of the many products they do. You can read part 1 here

These are the current two I have but I will briefly mention two others I have previously tried too.

The Breakfast Scrub £9.00 - This smells amazing! It is a super sweet maple syrup scent which makes my teeth ache when I smell it! This is a coarse scrub and is definitely something to be used less often if your skin isn't that dry but if you do have exceptionally dry skin, or even when your skin is that bit more dry in Winter this is the scrub for you.

Pulp Friction £7.00 - This has the frutigo fragrance which I personally am not crazy for which is surprising as I love fruity scents but there is a note in this which is almost alcoholic? and it takes away from the sweeter notes in it. This is a cream scrub so the exfoliating beads are immersed in the cream so this is a lot easier to work with than the scrub mentioned above and this is my go to scrub for that reason. I think this is the perfect amount of exfoliation for me at least as it does what it's meant to but it doesn't leave your skin feeling dry or like you've over scrubbed.

I've also previously had Sugar Crush which is a citrus lime scent (again, I'm not fond of this as it has slight alcoholic or similar notes in it but it is a really popular scent as there's now a full line in the scent) and has a similar texture to the breakfast scrub so it's a little harder to work with. I would say you don't need this and the breakfast scrub as they are very similar so it comes down to personal preference on the scent. I've tried a mini Flake Away which is a cult Soap & Glory scrub. This is slightly more mild as it's got a sort of gel texture and is quite thin but saying that it does have a lot of exfoliation beads so doesn't lack in how scrubby it is!

So that's part two! I'm sorry it took so long to get up but as I said at the start the final instalment should be up by the end of August. Let me know how you are liking these posts and if you would like to see other posts like this featuring other brands!
Soap and Glory products can be found at Boots

    1. Yeah, I do prefer it a little for that reason. I do think I would re purchase it for that reason, I hope they come out with a scrub with the same consistency but with a different smell at some point x

  9. I have pulp fiction and I use it more of daily scrub as its easy to use rather than the sugar crush scrub which I use for more 'intense' scrubbing! When I run out of sugar crush I will try the breakfast scrub because I'm keen to smell it haha
