So I was in Boots the other day, six bottles of Soap and Glory products in hand (what…it was 3 for 2!) when it was like my beauty life flashed before my eyes. Images of my shower, bathroom shelf, and makeup stash began to flash in front of me. I hastily dropped everything and headed back to my flat at warp speed to see if it was true
This is what I found.
And this is just products, I’m not even going to go into how much makeup I have.
The crazy thing is, this is the one brand where I actually use every product I own, and I love it!
Anyway, I thought I’d give you a little product rundown of my favourites. I love them all so much, I’m actually surprised you haven’t been forced to listen to this sooner…
I bought Rich & Foamous after I moved to London, since the water up here is so different to back home, I get out the shower feeling like my skin is so dry it’s about to flake off. I adore this, the clue is in the name, it is super duper foamy and makes your skin feel silky and smooth. Also, it’s smells like heaven on earth, like pancakes and waffles!
My boyfriend’s mum used to have this, and every time I’d stay at their house, I’d steal a handful in the shower. When she ran out (I think I was the only one who used it) I just had to buy one for myself. Aside from being a great exfoliant, this stuff is actually pretty reasonable, a little four-finger-scoop will do my whole body (and I’ve got a pretty big one) and this is less than a tenner. Plus, it literally smells like pancakes. What could be better?
I know the blogosphere is mad for Hand Food, and I am too, but if I had to choose one or the other I’d pick this. It’s like a super intense older sister of Hand Food, it’s marketed as a hand mask, slap it on thick before bed, pop on your pink Soap and Glory Gloves, and let it soak in overnight, but you can also use a little less just as a hand cream, and it’s like Hand Food on steroids.
Peaches and Clean was the first Soap and Glory skincare product I bought (not pictured, but I also have Scrub Your Nose In It, all their different wipes, You Won’t Believe Your Eyes and a moisturiser…) and it will forevermore remain my favourite. I love a multifunctional product, and as the bottle says, this is 4 in 1. I keep this in my shower and use it daily, but it also comes with me on trips, much easier than lugging around cleansers and toners and everything else!
Are you as obsessive as I am? What are your favourite Soap and Glory products?
