Hello! Back in the golden olden days of my blog I used to churn out the Soap and Glory reviews like there was no tomorrow. For a while, Soap and Glory took a little back seat in my affections as I dabbled in other brands. I went a little crazy during the last Boots 3 for 2 and I picked up a few body scrubs. One of them was the Soap and Glory Scrub ‘Em and Leave ‘Em Body Buff.
Soap and Glory Scrub ‘Em and Leave ‘Em Body Buff
Scrub ‘Em And Leave ‘Em™ Body Buff is scented with Mist You Madly’s™ beautiful notes of bergamot, blackcurrant, magnolia, freesia, vanilla and musk. Contains babassu oil, sea salt and moisturising jojoba and mandarin oils.
The Soap and Glory Scrub ‘Em and ‘Leave ‘Em Body Buff is one of the last few body scrubs from Soap and Glory I had yet to try. Yep, I’ve pretty much tried them all. Could that make me a Soap and Glory master? I’m not sure that is one achievement to put on the CV…
When it comes to body scrubs, I like them gritty and I like them to make me feel about a stone lighter without any hard work or exercise on my part. This body buff is a mixture of sea salt and artificial plastic pink microbeads. To be honest I’m not keen on the microbeads in this body buff; the salt disappears but you or the bath will be left covered in pink little balls. Ahem. I’m not too keen on microbeads in my products after I learned they are polluting our oceans… but that is another story for another time.
I don’t feel this is as good as it could be. It doesn’t scrub that well and you have to use a lot to feel a difference. And £8.00 a tub, you want to get your money’s worth, don’t you? I can’t help but feel underwhelmed with this body buff. I also don’t feel any benefits from any of the oils on my skin. Usually when I fall in love with a body scrub, I like to use it in every single bath I have. With this, it has been sat in my bathroom cabinet for weeks on end as I feel it doesn’t really do anything for me apart from make a mess.
I do have to say that I love the smell of it; the Mist You Madly scent line is one of my favourites from Soap and Glory. For £8.00, would it be worth repurchasing for the smell alone? Sadly not. Soap and Glory should not lose all hope though; I often proclaim my love for The Breakfast Scrub and that will be something I will repurchase forever. Look out for my thoughts on that really soon.
What is your favourite Soap and Glory scrub? I bet I have tried it…
