Soap and Glory 'Pink Big' Box Set - Review of products

Hello lovelies.

So this post is long overdue. For Christmas, my sister got me a fabulous present. It was the Soap And Glory 'Pink Big' box set.
  This was my first time trying Soap and Glory products despite seeing many of their products in boots. All of the products have quirky names as you will notice below. You can even submit ideas of product names on their website HERE and if it's used you get some free goodies!! The company bases their marketing on a 40's/50's/60's chic glam-housewife vintage sort of theme - which I really really like (self described - wouldn't you know!!)  Here is what was included:

CLEAN ON ME - Shower Gel
This smells lovely and the packaging is nice - as you can see it has a squirt pump which is handy for the shower. Other than that i'm not overly fussed on this.

GIRLIGO - Body Moisturing Mist
This is a scented spray on moisturising must. Nice to spritz on all over the body after a shower. Again, i'm not overly fussed with this other than it having a lovely smell. (blend of bergamot, peach, strawberry, jasmine, mandarin and musk.)

SCRUB YOUR NOSE IN IT - Face scrub & mask.
This; I am impressed with. On first impressions I wasn't too keen on the smell, well more so I wasn't expecting it to smell like it did. It smells of menthol/mint. It's an exfoliating scrub aimed towards people with large pores & doubles up as a face mask when applied and left on the face. The formulation is quite thick with a very grainy texture - which is what I like, as I feel it really does scrub and clean my face. Some may find this too coarse and harsh to use. I use it every 2 or 3 days. It also has a fruit acid formula which claims to leave the skin bright and more radiant - which I also agree with. Loving this and will repurchase!

OFF YOUR FACE - Cleansing Wipes
Wasn't expecting too much from these - at the end of the day most wipes are the same!! Didn't like the smell at all (Chamomile & Mint ) The wipes also claim to have "poreshrinkers". HA! I'd say not!! I just use wipes to initially clean make up from my face and then continue to use my facial cleanser or scrub.

THE BREAKFAST SCRUB - Body Smoother/Scrub
THIS is quite beautiful! Not everyone will be keen on the smell (brown sugar and maple). It smells like something that you could eat but I could imagine some people finding it a bit sickly - but on the other hand the name is quite fitting as if you use it in the morning it would remind you of a breakfasty smell!! It also contains Golden Sugar scrub particles, Natural Organic cupuacu bio scrubs, Gentle Oatmeal grains, Banana, Almond and Honey extracts, Shea Butter and Glycerin. (I am only now realising that there is banana in there which I DESPISE, but I do not get that smell at all from it. It is really exfoliating and I really feel as though it does a good job at scrubbing away dead skin cells, leaving my skin really soft. I will repurchase.


THE RIGHTEOUS BUTTER - Body Butter
Apparently this is an award winning product? I personally didn't love it. Not that it particularly had negatives but I just don't like using perfume scented creams on my body - I much prefer natural, organic smells such as cocoa butter, fruits or milky almond smells! I tend to get a rash/dry skin on my arms so I didn't fancy using this there but I did use it for the rest of my body and legs. It blends in quite nicely and doesnt feel sticky. It does leave a nice smell to the skin, basically the same as the shower gel: (bergamot, strawberries and mandarin, with floral and fruity mid notes and musk, amber and warm vanilla notes on the bottom)

HAND FOOD - Hand Cream
Again this has a similar smell to the typical Soap and Glory smell of the shower gel and body butter ( shea butter, macadamia oil and marshmallow - sounds ideal to me!!) It is relatively non-greasy and leaves hands feeling quite silky. I like to keep it in my handbag to apply occasionally not even because of dry skin, but just for the smell!

FLAKE AWAY - Body Polish/Scrub
This is one FABULOUS product. It is a scrub that polishes the skin on your legs basically. It is similar to the Breakfast Scrub in that it is really grainy and defiantly scrubs away dead skin - but I would say this is more salt grainyish than sugar grainyish! Basically it contains smaller grains!! It smells fabulous and leave your legs silky smooth - it really actually does!! It contains Shea Butter, sweet almond oil, peach seed powder, sea salt and sugar. This is another of my absolute favs and is the best exfoliator I have ever used on my legs. Will certainly be repurchasing! :)

 GLAD HAIR DAY - Shampoo
I actually forgot to add this into the pictures but it did come with the set. This contains Raspberry Fruit Vinegar, Panthenol, Glycerin and Phytantriol to Smooth,Gloss,  Repair and Strengthen hair. Meh, I dono. It was just a shampoo that smelt nice to me, nothing major.

SHOWER PUFF
The set also included this super thick and compacted shower puff which does suds up quite well.

SEXY MOTHER PUCKER - Plumping Lipgloss
It was nice to see a cosmetic/make up product throw into the mix also. This is the Peach flavoured/shaded one. I say flavoured/shaded as it does not smell of peach but perhaps the colour of it is meant to be peach!? It strongly smells of chocolate! It DEFINATLY has that  swollen & tingly effect so if you're not mad on that I wouldn't recommend this. However if you do, this is quite a good one. The texture of the gloss is really sticky but I find the staying power of the shine brilliant because of this. It looks really nice on too, really smooth and shiney. I like it.

The set comes in this big foldable box which is quite nice. Not sure what I'll use it for. Currently it has Cathals toys in it but it's much to pretty to be his so I might use it to keep my big bottles of.... stuff in! Like shampoos, moisturisers etc. What else could I use it for!?
 Also the box is in a bag. I've seen people use these as shopping bags; not a bad idea I guess. Would make a nice park/beach bag too.

So that's that. Overall I was delighted with this set. Some great finds in here. My top three would be the Scrub Your Nose In It, Flake Away and Sexy Mother Pucker. The things I wasn't overly impressed are just because of personal preference but they do all smell lovely. Soap and Glory do not test on animals and are available from Boots, Harvey Nichols (in Dublin only but the website deliver) and Asos.  Has anyone else tried any of the above? Thoughts?

Slán!
Laura  xo

PS: apologies for the not so great photo quality. I took these on my phone a few months ago

Hi Laura, fab review and great blog! Have been checking in now n then since seeing ur link on beaut.ie :) I also got that S&G set for xmas! May be strange request but do you have any interest in swapping your 'CLEAN ON ME' for my 'SCRUB YOUR NOSE IN IT'. I have not even tried it ( so its unused) as usually only use dermalogica on my face as can be quite sensitive!

I won’t be able to thank you fully for the articles on your web-site. I know you’d put a lot of time and energy into all of them and hope you know how much I appreciate it. I hope I could do the same for someone else sometime.
