An Ode to Soap and Glory

An Ode to Soap and Glory

There comes a point when I feel as though I need to share with you just how good one particular brand is. It is not very often that I write posts like these because to me it is a big statement to make, however that being said when I feel like my experience has been that good I really do feel as though posts like these are warranted; it feels good to shout about a brand that you love.

Soap and Glory is a brand that I have being using now longer than I have being blogging. I still remember the very first time I was introduced to the brand when my mum brought both me and my sister the Soap and Glory Pink Tote Gift Set at Christmas which was filled the brim with what would soon become firm favourites of mine. From make up to skincare and pampering body treats Soap and Glory really does have you covered with some of the best (in my opinion) products on the high street; they're also pretty affordable too!

The Breakfast Scrub instantly springs to mind as one of my firm favourites as to this day it is still my favourite body scrub. To me it smells utterly incredible like maple syrup which is just one of the reasons as to why I like it so much, it also leaves my skin feeling beautifully smooth and hydrated. Likewise I also think Flake Away is pretty awesome too yet it doesn't get mentioned half as much which I think is a shame because it does the job just as good as the Breakfast Scrub. The only real difference that I have personally noticed is the scent because Flake Away follows the more traditional scent of Soap and Glory which is fruitier in comparison. 

Once dead skin has been buffed away you'll want to treat your skin to something extra nice which is where products such as Butter Yourself and The Righteous Butter come in. Both of these are fantastic body moisturisers that once again smell delightful! I know that I have been through a fair few tubs of The Righteous Butter in the past which is a favourite of mine for the winter time as it is thicker in texture to Butter Yourself. Generally speaking I'm a huge fan of the original Soap and Glory scent where in comparison I'm not too keen on Orangeasm; although having said that I do quite like Sugar Crush! There quite a wide variety of products available now which I think is awesome, of which after narrowing it down Smoothie Star is next on my list.

From the make up range on offer I have tried very little so far however there has been one product that I have tried which has impressed me immensely, so much so in fact that I have already gone out and purchased a backup. The Soap and Glory Archery Brow Pencil* in the shade Hot Chocolate was originally sent to me to try in which at the time I had heard very good things about it but if I'm honest I wasn't too sure how I would personally get on with it. I think purchasing it myself so soon already speaks for itself but if you're looking for a decent brow pencil that looks natural, is easy to use and doesn't cost a small fortune then for £8 it is worth checking out; my only real gripe is that the shade range is too small. 

Whilst in the past I have used the Supercat Liner and loved it, I have recently being trying out the Supercat Fat Eyeliner* which is essentially is the same thing only with a much thicker tip that has a slant to it. This was a product that took me a little while to get used to because the pen is much thicker than I'm used to however once I had got the hang of it I was left feeling pretty impressed. It is just as good as the original Supercat Liner for me in terms of pigmentation and longevity however I do generally prefer a thinner line for my eye liner. If however you are looking for a chunky liner and want to achieve an awesome cat flick in the process then again this is one to check out. Sticking with make up for one moment more I'll mention briefly the Sexy Mother Blusher* in the shade Berry Jamm which is quite a bright pink cream blush at first instance however once applied it is easily blended out to create a soft summer flush to the cheeks. Sadly when I opened this particular one the whole thing fell out of the packaging onto my big white A3 card that I use for blog photographs, uh oh! That was a bit disappointing however aside from that one aspect the product itself is actually pretty nice as it blends out beautifully from what is a cream to powder finish. Personally I really do like this one, it'll be one I reach for in summer a lot although if I could say one thing about this it would be that I would have preferred this to have been in a little pot as opposed to a tube as I do think the packaging could have been designed better.

Finally onto skincare there is a now quite a few products within the line however a stand out to me in the past has been No Clogs Allowed which was one of the very first products I purchased from Soap and Glory back in the day when it still had silver packaging. At the moment I'm giving the Drama Clean Micellar Water* a whirl although if I'm honest this will only be a product I reach for on light make up days because so far I have found that it struggles against heavy eye make up. To be honest for me this is something that I would put into a toner category more so than a make up remover as I found that ultimately it didn't do a good job in that department.

Upon reaching the end of this post I do feel a little sad that I've ended on somewhat of a dim note, yet when I actually sat down and thought about it, out of what must have been almost fifteen different products or more that I have tried from Soap and Glory in over three years I think that only finding one that I wasn't too keen on is actually a pretty darn good achievement. For me Soap and Glory have created a brand that is fun, creative, affordable and accessible in which nine times out of ten the products actually work and do what they claim to do , which is why I ultimately felt that an ode to Soap and Glory was warranted here today.

What are your favourite products from Soap and Glory? I'd love some more recommendations.

Soap and Glory can be found at Boots.

  4. Love the archery pencil but agree with you that the shade range is far too small. It's silly as I guarentee if there was more options, a hell of a lot more people would purchase it!

  7. Soap and Glory as a whole is just such an adorable brand! I've tried a few skincare and body products which I've really enjoyed. I love the breakfast scrub too! I really want to try their makeup but we only have a suuuper small range (like...the lipglosses) over here which is unfortunate!

  8. I've definitely bookmarked this post for future reference for the next time I find myself in Boots! (Which hopefully will be soon) I've heard such great things about Soap&Glory which makes it a shame that it's international reach is so limited.


    Have you tried the Make Up Revolution Ultra Brow Arch&Shape? Granted they only have one shade more in their shade range than the Soap and Glory, but it might be a better shade match, and I've personally yet to find a brow pen I love more x

  16. i loveeeee the breakfast scrub! it lasted me forever though so by the time i finished i thought i'd try something different and i picked up the sugar crush scent which is also delicious! it's such a shame we don't really get S&G makeup in australia - just their bodycare, cause i'd love to try more from the brand and UK girls are always saying how good their makeup is.

  23. If they add even just a few more shades to the line it would open up the product to so many more people x

    ReplyDelete
  24. They are all awesome products x

    ReplyDelete
  25. The best time to try them is at Christmas, they produce some fantastic gift sets x

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh that's a shame Tasha, in all honesty though I haven't tried much from the make up line yet, I've only a few things so far. For me it is their body products where they truly excel x

    ReplyDelete
  27. It is a shame, I wasn't aware of how bad it is to be honest. Oh really, I will definitely look into that thank you! They only sell it in Superdrug here or online however for a new product I like to see it myself before I order it, I'll have to pop in and have a look next time I go into town. Thank you for the recommendation xx

  32. They come up with some interesting names! x

    ReplyDelete
  33. I know, I realised that too when I was writing this post which I think is testament to just how good this brand is x

    ReplyDelete
  34. I haven't yet tried Peaches and Clean to be honest, I've read a few mixed reviews on that in the past but the general consensus has always been pretty positive. We're all different though so not everything will agree with everyone x

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'd like to give that a try for sure! Personally I'm not a huge fan of the micellar water, I couldn't recommend it for removing make up as for me it didn't do a very good job, particuarly on mascara and eye liner x

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yep the Supercat line is pretty great Caroline x

    ReplyDelete
  37. Their make up really is great from what I have tried but I must admit I love their body products even more :) x

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh that's a shame, when you come back you'll have to stock up! x
