Hello! It’s been a long time since I wrote a Soap and Glory review so that must be remedied, pronto! Today I will be talking about the Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Shower Gel; a product that took me by surprise… *raises eyebrow mysteriously*

I need to start off this post by saying that whenever I have the remotest of thoughts about this product, I cannot stop singing “Sugar Rush” by the Japanese girl band AKB48. I think Soap and Glory should work out a deal with them to use this song in their advertisements!
I really want to be in AKB48 now!
Now I’ve got that out of the way, I can talk about the product in detail. I have tried many a shower gel from Soap and Glory; I think this was one of the last few that I had left. I received it in a Christmas gift (probably from myself… to myself!) and I wasn’t expecting much. I had previously tried the body scrub and I didn’t like it (nothing will ever compare to The Breakfast Scrub!).
This particular shower gel is different from the others on offer as this is more of a zingy, in yo’ face smell compared to the other S&G gels that I think are quite soft and subtle. This is a sugar + lime scent combination that does take some getting used to. It was that strong in the first few uses that I began to worry my teeth were rotting. Over time, I began to love the smell and enjoyed using it in the bath and shower as either a morning awakener or as an evening pick-me-up.
As well as having quite the unique smell, I’ve also noticed an improvement in my skin from using this – yes really! I think it is a combination of the various fruit oils present in the formulation that provide a very gentle (almost chemical) exfoliation on my skin. I’ve noticed my skin is smoother and softer, and I don’t have those pesky little bumps on the back of ma guns *flexes bingo wing seductively*.
It’s not often I repurchase a shower gel but I think for this I will make an exception. Bring on the 3 for 2 offer!
