Review: Soap & Glory The Scrub Of Your Life Body Scrub

Posted in Beauty

Ever since I wrote this post (another post to rewrite… *cries*), I can’t stop singing BABY LET ME SCRUB YA DAAAAHN, THERE’S SO MANY WAYS TO BUFF YA so much so that I should just hurry up and release it as my first single. 


They say:

It’s thick, it’s foamy, it’s fantastically fresh, it’s satisfyingly stuffed with just the right ratio of scrubbing beads. Scented with our Original Pink™ fragrance.


I say:

I’m slowly but surely working through the Soap & Glory scrub ranges.  I need to have a scrub in my bath time routine or I begin to feel like the Sandpaper Man from The Mighty Boosh.  I just want to be loved scrubbed.

I bought this during 3 for 2 at Boots and it was a toss up between this and Scrub Actually (that’s next on the hit list).  What persuaded it for me was, how rather consumerist, was the “scrub of your life” claim.  Could it be the scrubbiest (grammar Nazi’s I’m waiting) scrub of all? Could it scrub away the inches and unveil a new woman?! 

*dramatic music*

Sadly, it’s not.  I think this is more of a body wash than a scrub.  (I bet you sensitive souls are aghast at my scaly skin) (how is she invincible to The Scrub of Your Life?!)


The formula is a mixture of the gel wash and small exfoliating beads. (you can see the pink little balls…) (HEEHEEHEE) (oh my god why did I type that no going back now) (YOUR MUM HAS PINK LITTLE BALLS) (brain that makes no sense…)

When rubbed, scrubbed or buffed it begins to foam up:

I’d like to add that it foams up more than this.  This was on my wrist and not a screen shot from my bath.  This may be Tumblr but that doesn’t mean I’m going to start getting out my foofoo out.  (Just saying).

Like I said above (^), this is more of a body wash than a body scrub in my opinion.    It’s kind of like when you get an exfoliating facial wash – it’s not overly gentle yet it’s not so harsh that you whimper in fear when you open the bathroom cabinet.

I think that if you want a dual action product then I would recommend this.  If however, you are like me and need an industrial scrub then perhaps give this one amiss and have a look around.

The Scrub of Your Life is one of the “ORIGINAL PINK” scented Soap and Glory products.  To see the rest of the accompanying products you can use, click here.

Rating? About 3/5.  It was alright.  It lasted a fairly decent amount of time, it did scrub (just not enough) and it also doubled up as a wash.  My only niggle is that it’s not the “scrub of my life”.  Maybe just “scrub for a month or two”(oo-er, keep the change you filthy animal) (I’m here all week…)
