Another Soap and Glory product for me to review that I recently bought is this. Whilst in Boots, I couldn’t help myself and went off to buy three new bottles of ‘Scrub of your life’ (I have reviewed this separately) which as you know if you have read my review on that product is simply because it is my all-time favourite one in the range and I had run out so I thought whilst the three for two offer is still running I will stock up on it! However as I was looking at the shelves, I came across this particular product which is one I had not spotted before and even though I have used the ‘scrub your face in it’ product and loved it, I knew I couldn’t walk out of Boots without buying this to try as it looked so nice and also had a rather nice scent to it.
The product: This particular scrub from Soap and Glory is a facial scrub and wash. Much like ‘Scrub your nose in it’, it is geared for use on the face as a facial exfoliator. The difference is that this scrub is just a scrub as opposed to being able to be used as a mask as well.
Packaging: Usually, most Soap and Glory products are housed in a pink coloured tube or bottle. Instead, this is the opposite way around and is housed in an off white tube with pale pink writing on it. However it is still very obvious it is a Soap and Glory product by all the funky sizes of the font and the fact that there is a massive Soap and Glory logo on the front! The back has the usage instructions on as well as the ingredients being listed.
Using it: I did exactly as the tube told me to and what I do with every scrub I use and wet my face first and then squirted out some of the exfoliator (about the size of a 50p piece) and then rubbed it all over my face. It tells you to rub for about thirty seconds but, I just rub until it feels I have done everywhere that needs doing and then to rinse, which I do. I found the consistency of the exfoliator quite funky as it is a lovely white colour that has a slight shimmer too it and almost looks like it has been whipped and there are also small orange coloured beads in it too. These beads are advertised as being ‘smooth boost spheres’ that pop open when you press on them! All sounds a bit technical but, they do appear as little beads and when you start to rub in they do break up although they are that tiny anyway it wouldn’t take much to pop them. Rinsing the scrub off is easy enough and a few splashes of water are all it takes to get it off. It doesn’t get stuck on your skin so there is no need for hefty rubbing to remove it. After my skin had dried, my face felt smooth and silky so I was pleased with the results.
Price: The scrub can be bought in Boots for £9 for the 125ml tube. As always Boots, run the 3 for 2 offers a lot and this usually includes S&G products in it. I have been given S&G products as presents before but, if I ever want or need to purchase products, I tend to wait until this offer is on because then it works out much cheaper and even better value per item.
Overall opinion: I am a bit undecided with this scrub as to whether or not I feel it is worth the money as when I was in boots I got a bit confused and thought it was £8 but, when I got to the till it was £9. By this point I already wanted to and as I was only paying for two items it was still pretty good value per item anyway as both my other items were considerably cheaper than this. However if I was paying for this on its own and there were no offers on, it is quite a hefty price tag to pay £9 for a face scrub. It smells much better than the other scrub I have which is the ‘Scrub your nose in it’ and works really well as a face scrub but, despite the great smell and the fact that it works well, would I really want to pay £9 out if the three for two offer was going on? Probably not. Overall it does its job well, smells good and I would definitely use it again. However, I think for that price tag, I would be definitely put off buying again so would probably only get it if I was lucky enough to be given it as a gift.
