Tried & Loved - Soap & Glory - Scrub, Actually





I have fallen in love once again for the Soap & Glory brand, this time with the 'Scrub, Actually' body scrub!

This sugar sweet treat (and I mean literally sugar!) is such a yummy way to freshen up your skin! I am a sucker for all things sweet and pink, so I couldn't go past this when I saw it in Kit recently. 

Soap & Glory describe the scrub as "An absolute smash of a body buffer, with smoothing brown sugar, white sugar and natural apricot kernel oil. Loaded with kukui oil, mango butter and vitamin E. Scented with our fruity Blueberry fragrance." 

To use, simply squeeze your desired amount (a medium handful is a good amount for me) into your hand, then apply to damp skin in a circular motion until the product dissolves. Easy! And fresh skin with a beautiful scent will follow. :)

Being in a squeeze tube also makes things super simple in the shower. I have found with tubs that it's quite easy for water to find it's way into the packaging, but this is avoided completely having the scrub in a tube, and it's definitely soft enough to squeeze out as desired. 

The scrub itself is a nice light scrub as the sugar granules melt quite quickly in the heat of the shower. After using it my skin feels nice and soft, and not dry at all like some other scrubs I've used before. I'm assuming this is due to the Mango Butter and Vitamin E infused in the scrub, and the beauty of a sugar scrub is that it doesn't burn any teeny nicks or bumps  (I'm looking at you shaving cuts) you may have - like I feel salt based scrubs can sometimes do. 

The packaging, in unison with the rest of the Soap & Glory brand, is filled with cheeky puns and slogans like "All you need is scrub" (I can't get the song from Moulin Rouge out of my head every time I use this now, sigh. Haha), and vintage imagery on a bright pink colour base. Very cute and girly, and the scrub colour matches being bright pink!

This is a nice light scrub that is great for use even a few times a week if you'd like a little pick me up for your skin, nothing too abrasive about it though so maybe not great for removing the toughest troubles. I have noticed that there are about 5 different body scrubs in the Soap & Glory range though so I'm quite interested in checking out a few more to see what different goodies they may hold for my skin. 

This scrub is available from Kit Cosmetics in Myer, or a Kit store near you or online at Kit or Mecca for only $16.95. So cheap! 

Have you tried the Soap & Glory - Scrub, Actually body scrub before? What's your favourite body scrub? x

    1. Oh me too! I'm a total addict after only 2 products, it's probably a good thing I don't live too close to a Kit store to buy more all the time. Haha.
      I think I might try one of their packs next so I can try a whole heap of products at once. :)

  2. I've only tried flake away which I reviewed on my own blog, this ones seems better, but too expensive over here for me!

    1. They are a wonderful brand. :) I think the only problem is, everything looks good so I never know what to try next! If you're after a nice light scrub I'm sure you will love this too. x

  5. I fell in love with Soap & Glory after using Hand Food (thanks hehe!) and this product sounds just as delightful! The Righteous Butter body moisturiser is also an AMAZING, I seriously don't know how they can make so many yummy products but so glad they do ;-)
