Soap and Glory Scrub ‘Em and Leave ‘Em Body Buff

Posted in Beauty

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

£8.00 – Boots

They say:

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.

I say:

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…

    I’m not usually big on microbeads either, but for some reason the S&G Scrub of Your Life actually went down really well with me. Body Shop do some quite good scrubs if I remember rightly though!

      I have tried the SOYL but I didn’t think it was that good! I really want to try the body shop scrubs as apparently they smell really good :) x

    The Breakfast scrub is on my forever repurchase list as well. There’s nothing quite like it, although the Body Shop scrubs are also really good. I really want to try the Raspberry one, it looks like jam *__*

    I’m not sure if the are mircobeads as I was under the impression that Boots had removed them from all recipes by 2012 and Soap & Glory is manufactured by Boots themselves.
