So recently I went into Boots and came out with 3 random Soap & Glory products as they had a 3 for 2 offer on their range. This was the first time I had bought anything from Soap & Glory and I'd heard such good reviews of this range that I wanted to try some of their stuff! This Sugar Crush Body Scrub was one of the 3 products I bought.
The first thing you notice about this product is the size of it. It comes in a huge 450ml tub and it weigh's quite hefty. The packaging of the tub is clear and you can clearly see the brown sugary and grainy substance in it. The lid is a lovely turquoise blue twisty lid and has The Sugar Crush Body Scrub wrote on it. On the back there isn't long instructions. It simply says to use the scrub in the shower once, twice or three times weekly. A warbubg states that this scrub should not be used on irritated or abraded skin, and it also warns you that this is not food. Although it looks like it is!
The price of this tub is a rather pricey £8.81 at the moment with the VAT cut. This is quite expensive and I probably wouldn't have bought it if it hadn't been on offer.
The aim of this scrub is for people with dry, flaky and rough skin and the ingredients helps make your skin feel more smooth and gorgeous. It does say on the back use in the shower, but I use this scrub fine in the bath.
When you unscrew the lid you will find a flad turquoise covering over the scrub to protect it. The first time I opened the lid of this scrub before even lifting the lid I was hit with the smell. It was a truly yummy smell! You see thie Body Scrub is made with brown sugar, sweet lime, almond oil and macadamia grains. I really could smell a sweet lime smell but it wasn't sickly, there really isn't enough words to truly describe how nice this stuff smells. I finally lifted off the little lid and underneath I saw the scrub, and it had that lovely 'just poured' effect that you can get on little squares of chocolate or tubs of margarine. This just made it look even more yummy! When I scooped out a small portion with my fingers I noticed a wonderfully grainy thick texture and again the smell was just everywhere.
You only need a small amount of this product to spread over your body, and it spreads nicely. I rubbed it in and it did an excellent job on my skin. I don't actually have any badly dry areas of skin on my body, but this scrub really did leave my skin feeling smooth and silky soft. It didn't leave my skin red raw, and you don't have to be too rough with this scrub as it's lovely and grainy. I can imagine this stuff being great on your thighs as it's grainyness reminds me alot of the Lush Buffy Body Bar.
I really recommend this scrub to people, get rid of your boring shower gels and get this! It's so scrummy and yummy you have to try hard not to eat it!
