Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub Review

Sugar Crush is my absolute favourite scent by Soap & Glory and for a long time now I’ve been meaning to try the body scrub. I’ve already tried the body butter and body wash which I love!

Soap & Glory Sugar Crush

This 50ml is from a gift set, I’m not 100% sure if you can buy this separately but if you can the travel size items cost around £3; the full size is 300ml and costs £8. The packaging is simple and stands out and comes in the form of a screw top pot.

The scrub smells fresh and divine, it’s a mixture of brown sugar, sea salt, lemon and sweet lime. It is thicker than other scrubs I’ve used but it isn’t a problem as it still glides on the skin and a little goes a long way.

After use my skin felt soft, there was no irritation and it wasn’t drying. The scrub isn’t harsh so it can be used frequently but if you want a deeper exfoliation then you may want to try the Scrub ‘Em and Leave ‘Em body buff.

I would definitely recommend giving this a try and picking up Sugar Crush gift sets, there’s no better scent!

May Favourites 2018

Hey everyone, just a quick post today to show you what products I have been loving recently and haven’t put down throughout the month of May, there are tons more products but I’ve kept it short and sweet. 

May Favourites

Delicious Destination Body Mists: I believe these are a relatively new launch in Superdrug and cost £3.99 each, I love the Layering Lab Body Mists but they are usually sold out so I thought i’d give these a try. The Watermelon & White Lotus mist smells fruity and fresh whilst the Kiwi & Palm Leaves smells very similar to the Gucci Bamboo fragrance which I absolutely love.

Wake Me Up Caffeine and Green Tea Wipes:  These are Superdrug own brand wipes and cost £1.29 they are great for removing make up whilst being gentle on the eyes as I have had problems in the past with wipes making my eyes sore. I love using these on bare skin without make up as it makes my skin feel refreshed. These wipes are suitable for all skin types as well.

Carmex Strawberry Lip Balm: I use this everyday and it definitely keeps dry lips at bay, its one of the best lip balms I think you can get and it retails at £2.69 with loads of different flavours to choose from.

Maybelline Falsies Mascara: This is by no means a new product but I rediscovered it last month after my favourite L’Oréal Paradise Extactic Mascara ran out and I don’t know why I stopped using it, it’s a great volume mascara and only costs £8.99.

Models Own Chrome Indigo Polish: I’ve had this polish a while from a Chrome gift set but I hadn’t actually used it before and its now my favourite shade. It looks great and is the perfect mix of blue and purple, the only downside is that it doesn’t last too long without a top coat applied over it. You can get this shade off the Models Own website for £4.99

Soap & Glory Scrub ‘Em and Leave ‘Em Body Buff Review

Time for another skincare review and todays product of choice is one I’ve been loving lately and its the Soap & Glory Scrub ‘Em and Leave ‘Em body buff. I have the 50ml pot which retails as £2.50 but you can get the huge 300ml pot for £8.

Soap & Glory Scrub 'Em and Leave 'Em Body Buff

Firstly this body buff smells amazing it contains Babassu Oil, Sea Salt and is scented with their Mist You Madly body mist. It is a great exfoliator and feels rougher than any other body scrubs I have previously tried, however, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing as it didn’t feel scratchy but if you have sensitive skin it might not be for you. 

I also think it would be perfect to add into a tanning routine as it leaves your skin feeling very smooth and exfoliated after use with no need to moisturise.

A slight issue with this scrub is it does collect in the bottom of the shower rather than washing away completely.  If you are unsure whether or not to give this a try then I definitely recommend picking up a travel size. 

“At Soap & Glory, we absolutely do not test our formulations on animals, however we can’t say that each and every ingredient that goes into them has not, at some point historically, been cleared for human use, by animal testing.” (Soapandglory.com) 

I loved this product and would have no problems with purchasing a full size. 

 

L’Oreal Pure Clay Detox Mask

Introducing the L’Oreal Pure Clay Detox Mask! One of three new masks introduced by the skincare experts, as well as the detox mask you can also purchase the glow mask for dull skin and the purity clay mask for oily skin.

Loreal Detox Mask

One of the things I love about this mask is the charcoal properties that draw out imperfections which is one of the main reasons  I purchased this one over the glow mask, I also have the purity mask which I will leave for another review.

L'oreal Pure Clay Mask

My preferred way of applying the mask is with a makeup brush as ive heard it can be quite messy otherwise, I just purchased a cheap one from Poundshop and surprisingly it hasn’t ruined! Only a thin layer is required which means plenty of applications to be had.

Like any mask it goes on for around  10-15 minutes, its also gentle enough to be used 2-3 times a week which is a bonus as I love weekly face mask. I can comment that the mask can be messy to remove but its less messy with a warm wet flannel/cloth and it is a quicker method of removal.

The mask always leaves my skin feeling soft and fresh and I would fully recommend it to anyone who’s curious to try it.

Currently the mask is on offer for £5 (introductory) and will go up to £7.99

Deep Action: Pore Cleansing Pads

Are blackheads and blemishes the bane of your life? or are you a sufferer of oily skin? If these problems affect you then try giving Deep Action a try! The range is part of Superdrug’s own collection and are great for skin problems with a small price tag to make them even more desirable.

Deep Action Pore Cleansing PadsEach pots contain around 40 pads and the scent isn’t too strong which makes them perfect to use each morning and night. The pad has two sides, a ‘rougher’ edge which you use first and then a ‘smooth’ surface and instantly you can see any dirt which has been removed. These are similar to the Clearasil pads you can purchase but I personally are not a fan of those as I find them to be quite greasy feeling at times, I never have that problem with these pads.

At first use I was shocked at how much dirt the pad had picked up! I don’t necessarily have bad skin but recently it had been oily and a few blackheads had appeared but within a week or two of using these pads daily I’ve found that my skin has vastly improved.  The product states it is not for sensitive skin and just like all Superdrug branded products it is cruelty free and suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians.  

The pads are usually BOGOF for around £2.70 (or below) and often found at half price. It just goes to show that own brand products can meet the expectations of the high end products.
