Sugar Crush... | PaigeyPumpkin

Hello everyone, 
Today I thought I'd share my opinions on the Sugar Crush body wash and scrub by Soap&Glory with you lovely lot!

Scent: Limes, Lemons, Sweet Vanilla Musk and Coconut Oil.
Products with this scent: Sugar Crush Body Wash, Scrub and Body Buttercream.

Soap&Glory Sugar Crush Fresh&Foamy Body Wash

True to the name, this was very foamy and fresh. I find with all Soap & Glory body washes that a little goes a long way and I only have to use one pump (sometimes two) which makes this last for absolutely ages (around 3 months). It foams up really well which is something that often draws me to a body wash/shower gel. 

Soap&Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub
 This is a very grainy scrub and if you are using it in the bath you will need to clean the bath as it does leave grains at the bottom. It is harsh enough to remove dead skin but isn't too harsh that you can't use it very often (I use it 2-3 times a week). Also, it contains almond oil, macadamia grains, brown sugar and sweet lime. Like the body wash, it is very fresh and leaves me feeling very clean. 

Overall, these are both great products but I am not the biggest fan of the smell. It has a very strong citrus smell which I'm not very keen on but the smell isn't very off putting for me. You can pick these two up in Boots for £8 (scrub) and £6.50 (body wash).

Soap&Glory Scrub 'Em&Leave 'Em Mini-Review | PaigeyPumpkin

Hello everyone!
Recently I've been testing out the Soap&Glory, Scrub 'Em & Leave 'Em body scrub. (RRP. £8)

I am a huge fan of Soap&Glory, particularly their scrubs, so I was rather excited to give this a try. 

This has the typical Soap&Glory scent, which is called "Mist Your Madly". I love the scent of it and, although if you smell the scrub in the pot it is rather strong, and for some overpowering, once the scrub has been used the scent isn't too strong and doesn't stay on your body for a long time.

The packaging, as always for Soap&Glory, is very girly and pretty compared to other brands. I like how the packaging for Soap&Glory always stays within a very girly theme. 

As for the scrub itself, it is pink and has a lot of micro-beads in it. Although this first came off as looking like a harsh scrub, it is a lot more gentle than my Soap&Glory favourite "Flake Away". In comparison to Flake Away, it is less grainy but is still a sugar based scrub but, unlike Flake Away, the scent didn't last as long, but that is a factor I'm not really fussed about. My skin was left soft and smooth and I will definitely purchase this again!

Overall, I really liked this scrub, but, there have been a few mixed reviews, so if you're thinking of purchasing this then you may want to have a peak at a few other reviews.
