*To the tune of Jump from Love, Actually.*
Scrub! Scrub me good. Scrubbing, inside my tub. Scrub if you want to make your skin really soft, yeahhhh. Scruuuuub, in the tub.

I rarely stray away from S&G when it comes to bath products; what can I say I’m a creature of habit. During one 3 for 2 binge (or 6 for 4 in my crazy beauty blogger brain!) I picked up a few bits, some new items and some repurchases. I decided to give the Soap and Glory Scrub, Actually body scrub a go, mainly because the name reminds me of the film Love, Actually.
To be fair, this GIF is necessary to show you how I look in Boots; pacing the containing aisle up and down, arms full of Soap and Glory products, frantically muttering “BUT I CAN GET 6 AND JUST PAY FOR 4 AND I MUST BUY THEM NOW AS IT WILL BE AGES UNTIL ANOTHER 3 FOR 2 DEAL!”
When it comes to scrubs, I want industrial strength. I want liquid sandpaper. You would think the Soap and Glory Scrub, Actually would be quite abrasive, but I find it quite mild, and a little underwhelming.
The texture and consistency of it reminds me of sugar that pools in the bottom of your tea… to be fair it is, considering this contains both brown and white sugar. *mind blown* The apricot kernel oil provides some … oiliness? lubrication? slip? so many words! This allows the scrub particles to disperse easily whilst coating the skin. I did take a picture of the scrub but it just looks right weird…
Like I said above, I do find this quite mild on my skin and if I want to have a good scrub I have to apply some pressure. I also find that it’s so easy to use a lot of this quite quickly, as the small grains of sugar “melt” away fast; within about 5 seconds of scrubbing for me personally. During the first use I was a little enthusiastic until I realised I had nearly used half of the tube!
This isn’t a product I would repurchase sadly, but alas I do already have a favourite scrub from S&G! If you are after a scrub you could use every day that won’t strip five layers of skin off, then maybe this is one for you.
Thanks for reading!
