I go to Shoppers Drugmart very often. Its a fabulous place to shop at for basically all your toiletry needs! On my most recent trips, I decided that I need a good body scrub. Now don't get me wrong, I bathe everyday with a body wash and pouf, however this time I wanted something that smelled good and had scrubing action in it!
Upon looking in the body wash section I came across this lovely pink tub of Soap and Glory. Now, I have to admit, I have seen this product before, but for some reason I kept confusing it with Benefit Cosmetics. Why!? I have no clue....maybe I need better contacts or just a better perception of name brands around me!! I mean its not like Benefit actually makes bath products and its not I don't use their products. Again better perception....or more sleep!!
Nonetheless, I pick up the tub, read it and opened it! OMG the smell that came from this pink lovely jar was mind blowing. I swear I died and woke up in fruit land paradise! I think people thought I was a (product) junkie because I just stood there sniffing this!! This smells like a basket of tropical fruit in such a relaxing way. I took it home and decided I needed yet another shower that day...well just cause I had to try it!!
I read online from a few reviews of people complaining that this scrub would slip off off their body and found this annoying. Duh!! It is a soap scrub, what did you expect it to do....to stick like mud!? Nonetheless for those having a hard time understanding how scrubs work, allow me to talk you through it.
1. wash yourself down with water.
2. Once you are nice and wet, step out from underneath the shower head!
3. Once the shower head is pointing down and no longer hitting you, attempt to open up the jar.
4. Once you have the jar open scoop out two fingers worth of product.
5. Rub the product between both hands and apply it carefully to your wet body.
6. Repeat step 4 & 5 till you are covered in scrub!
7. Step back underneath the shower head and wash yourself off.
8. Check scrub to make sure you didn't get water in it before you close the cap. If you did, turn it over and let the water rinse out and then close tight.
9. Dry yourself off and use body cream!
10. Get dressed!
This scrub really goes a long way. I was able to scoop out two fingers worth of scrub for all of my upper body and another two fingers worth for all my lower body. However as stated in point 8, a bit of water did get into the scrub from my wet hand. So make sure to pour out any water before closing the jar. If not you run the risk of messing up the consistency by watering it down.
When I came out the shower and put clothes on, people were still able to smell my wonderfulness :-) This scrub left my skin feeling so silky smooth, that when I applied it in the shower, I already felt how moisturizing it was. All day long I could smell and feel my skin so hydrated! Though I applied my usual body cream; I realized that my skin felt soft even before the body cream came along.
However with that being said, here is my disclaimer about this product. If you don't like strong smells or smells that linger, then this scrub is not for you. While I will not say that this scrubs' smell is overpowering, however it is strong in a fruity kinda way. So if strong smells aren't for you, then walk on cause you won't like this. However if you love your bath products to scent you in the same way perfume does, then go ahead and buy this scrub. Not only will you smell good all day, but your skin will feel soft and moisturized!
I wasn´t satisfied with that scrub, instead it got me rather annoyed. It basically consists of very coarse grains of sugar (or was it salt) in a creamy-oily, nice smelling base. What I liked, was the scent, what I didn´t like at all, was the effect, or rather the lack of effect. I tried massaging it onto my damp skin, but the grains are so big that some just fall off, and those which stay on the skin seem to dissolve in a matter of only half a minute or so. So there is actually nothing left to buff my skin. To put it in mild words: that stuff is VERY gentle, and thus not very effective. Won´t buy again.
I am a lover and long time user of soap and glorys' scrubs and figured I'd give this a try since it was on sephora's website. It feels like this scrub has more microbeads than their regular flake away. But the smell is very musky and it isn't as moisturizing. Not a fan. Going to stay with flake away.
Overall it is an ok scrub. On the up side it is pleasant to apply and turns a bit milky when I add water. It doesn't irritate my hands when I'm using it (some scrubs are too rough for my hands to apply). The smell does not last, which I don't mind. While it does leave my legs somewhat moisturized, I still apply lotion. Not a miracle worker by any means.
favourite scrub ever! leaves your skin so smooth and smells amazing. I wouldn't recommend using this before fake tan because it does have oils in it. it's a bit expensive (£7.50 from boots) so I don't use it all the time but you don't need to use a lot because a little goes a long way. will repurchase this over and over again.
I strongly dislike this scrub. The worst part of it for me is the smell, I really can't stand it. I know it's a hit or miss for smells, some find it divine I just hate it, it's such a sickly old people smell I can't really compare it to anything.
What I hate about it too is all the small beads that remain in the tub after using it. The scrub beads are very small pink particles that stick to the sides of the bath tub (and they stick well - you have to rub them away, just water won't be enough).
Third dislike about it, is that's in a jar, I don't like to always have to put my wet hands in it, I much prefer a scrub that comes in a tube.
I must say for it's scrubbing properties it's a decent scrub (if you can forget all the other downsides).
I used it when I had some ingrown hairs on my legs but for that it didn't help.
The price I find to high for what it is, I've had much better scrubs for half of the price.
In Europe it's hard to find, I bought it in Germany and there it was 20 euro for 300 ml.
I will definetly not buy this again.
I LOVE THIS SCRUB!
It was only the second body scrub I've ever tried. I used to use one by The Body Shop, but couldn't resist the smell of this one. I actually purchased this back when it was being sold at Target. I got it along with the Hair Supply hair treatment and a tube of lotion because they all smelled the same. This stuff scrubs and has actually healed some of my eczema patches on my legs to the point that they're no longer noticeable. I believe it's the salt that does the healing. It's also full of oils that make your skin soft and supple even before applying moisturizer. It's a little pricey, so I don't use it every day, but I would definitely repurchase. If you can get your hands on it, try it. You won't regret it!
