I absolutely love soap and glory products, they are a brand I am loyal too and often have many spares lying around. Each year I am gifted with the large soap and glory gift set containing a mixture of old and new products. This sugar crush body wash was in one of them and I very often like the scents that Soap and Glory use however this one I was not a fan of at all. Because the products are a little pricey I always try to use them and so I have had this available to use as a body wash in the shower, but if there is another option I would usually always pick something else instead. I love the texture of this product and it always makes my skin feel lovely and soft. From using this product, once my skin would dry it would leave a soft scent which if I liked the scent I think is a lovely thing. As I said I hate to waste these products and I know I will eventually use this product up but I imagine it will gradually disappear. I would avoid any other products from soap and glory that are scented the same as this or with lime in and this has made me slightly weary of avoiding products with smells I haven''''t yet tried. I think this is a great product but it''''s just the scent that puts me off. Of course this is my personal preference and I''''m sure this smell would be loved by many! :)
I absolutely love Soap and Glory, and was pretty excited when my boyfriend got me one of those massive gift packs from Boots for Christmas (I had dropped hints about loving Soap and Glory). He actually bought two packs (one for my birthday) so I am drowning in the products a bit, which is great with the good ones, but really one would''ve been enough. I have been using Soap and Glory shower gel for ages now, generally liking "Clean on Me" the most but also dabbling in "Clean, Girls" and "Foam Call". However, in the gift pack was one I hadn''t come across before, which is this "Sugar Crush Body Wash". This comes in the usual pretty Soap and Glory packaging (which looks great in the shower), this one being mostly pink (like the colour of the gel) and yellow. There is a push nozzle dispenser making it easy to get out of the bottle. I tend to put a few squirts onto my poofy shower thingy-to, then rub into my body. The first thing you notice about this is its very distinctive lime scent to it, which is pretty strong and unusual. I do like citrus flavours, and I do like this to an extent. However, for me it is nowhere near as nice as the usual Soap and Glory shower gel which I use. It does lather well and leaves me feeling clean. But generally I am a little bit disappointed due to the smell. However, this is purely my personal opinion, and am aware that many people will absolutely love this! It costs 6.50 for 500ml of shower gel which is standard for Soap and Glory - it should be available in the 3 for 2 deals which are frequently available. A bottle lasts a long time, which is good when you consider the price, but not so great since it''s not my favourite and I have two to get through before I can justify going out to buy myself some of my standard "Clean on Me" shower gel. 3 out of 5 stars from me.
Like a lot of Soap and Glory lovers I was lucky enough to get the Beauty Bag this Christmas. I have never used the Sugar Crush body wash before so was looking forward to it.
The product is a great bathroom size of 500ml and is the colour of bright pink. Has a pump action nozzle so very easy to use. I find the pump action best for myself as I don't overuse the gel then.
A couple of squirts is all you will need in the bath/shower and you are ready for your day. Lathers up very quickly and is a very creamy texture. I was trying to think of what the smell reminds me off and its keylime pie scrummy. A very fresh, invigorating body wash with a lovely sweet biscuit smell as well as tangy lime. I always find this shower gel wakes me up first thing in the morning, and the fragrance remains on my skin for most of the morning.
If you buy a lot of shower gels, body washes etc I would really recommend this.
Price is £6.50 in boots and they are always have 3 for 2 promotions on these items.
This Christmas as you may have read on my mascara review I received the Yule Monty Soap & Glory gift set and within this were 9 full sized items so I was very excited. One of these items was the Sugar Crush body wash which looked exciting with the green and pink labelling.
I cannot tell you how much I love the scrubs, butters, washes and moisturisers from Soap & Glory and all my family know this so I get at least 3 sets for Christmas. As I am lucky enough to have thoughtful family members I never actually have to buy a S&G product for myself! Its a good job we now have 3 bathroom areas as I can spread my products out over the rooms and brighten them all up with the attractive packages.
Another plus with Soap & Glory is the fact it is a company established in the UK in 2006 and I believe in supporting home grown companies.
The Sugar Crush body wash comes in the 500ml stand up pump action bottle, I love these as they are much easier to use in a hurry or even in the shower as you don't end up pouring it all over the shower tray and slipping. I find the doses are measured and actually makes the product last longer (my moisturiser comes in the same format and I have used it daily for at least 3 months now!) The bottle is the S&G standard issue pink which makes them so well known with dashes of green across the label to make the Sugar Crush Range stand out from the original range. The pump is an opaque, frosty coloured plastic almost like that of sugar.
The label has Sugar Crush in large letters on the front label and an image of a wedge of lime. The label states it is a 'fresh & foamy body wash' which instantly makes me think of summer and my holiday to Turkey picking the fresh limes from the trees. This is described as having a sweetly squeezed sweet lime fragrance, with lime oil, coolcapsule X, kiwi juice oil and omega rich veggie oil. When reading the description on the front it makes me feel positive towards this product as the ingredients sound natural and skin friendly; however, coolcapsule X did baffle me somewhat and the spellcheck on my computer! Afetr reading their webpage it states this is designed to cool and refresh but is one of those trademarks from brands designed to draw us in I think.
One side of the bottle has a white background with the green word 'zest' standing out and this is in relation to how to use the product. There is a warning not to get the product in your eye and how to remove it (this reminds me of getting Herbal Essences in mine and ending up with an eye blister so be careful!) The product is to be used within 24 months of opening.
The other side has half a citrus fruit image with the recommendation of doing a 2 minute rinse which is a popular item on Soap & Glory's social media pages to get people interacting and also save water. Further information here is the ingredients list (which does contain a lot of words I do not understand and I think I would bore you here if I were to look them all up) and a recommendation to visit their company website.
So I use this is the shower keeping it in the bathroom on the little box shelf by the window as the shower room cubicle is quite small and I would be worried the weight might break the little shelf. The pump action as I have said before works really well and helps regulate the flow of product so it does not end up being wasted and spilled everywhere.
The product comes out white in colour which surprised me because I was expecting a clear gel (maybe something like melted sugar due to the name). The crème is nice and silky with a nice sheen and smells sweet expected of a sugar name and has a lovely hint of limes almost like a key lime pie. In the shower with the steam the product smells quite strong and the citrus scent goes a long way on both my skin and in the rooms upstairs so has a double purpose. When applied to my S&G shower puff it lathers up lovely and feels silky on my skin. The product recommends lathering a small handful over your body giving a really good rub in and then rinsing.
The instructions advertise following with a body lotion or butter which is a good advertisement for them and I do this as water always makes my skin feel dry regardless of the wash products I use.
So I received this item as part of a 9 full size piece gift set which was £27 on star buy offer in Boots so worked out at a bargain £3 per item. However, in the shops this is £6.50 a bottle which is £1.30 per 100ml, I think this is quite good for the size and time the pump bottles last but some may think this is expensive. Soap & Glory products are available officially from their webpage or from Boots, other items can be found on Ebay or other places being sold on but be aware of prices and values.
So all in all I give this a whopping 5 stars for aesthetics, pump action bottle creating value for money and the wonderful fresh and fruity scent reminding me of gorgeous holidays and desserts (maybe it will stop me eating them too?)
A lovely gift for the ladies out there.

I've already got the Sugar Crush body scrub which I love, especially the smell, so I thought I would give the matching body wash a try.
***Price & Packaging***
The 500ml bottle of this shower gel costs £6.50 in Boots which is fairly reasonable (by Soap & Glory standards) for such a big bottle. It is in a large pale pink bottle with white, black and line green writing on the front. It looks bold and fun and looks great in the bathroom. It has a squirty top so is easy to use and you can get just the right amount out. The only trouble will be that it might be hard to use up as it gets empty as the squirter doesnt always get the last bits.
The fragrance was the main reason I bought this shower gel and it didn't disappoint. It is a really fresh but sweet smell which is made up of limes, sparkling lemon, vanilla musk and coconut oil. It is fruity but also has the sweet musk smell coming through and reminds me of Refresher sweets! The smell is strong which is a good thing as I love it and I can still smell it on my skin after drying off. Somehow it doesn't smell quite the same as the sugar crush body scrub though and isn't quite as sweet but its still nice all the same. Because it is quite heavily fragranced it may not be suitable for those with sensitive skin and definitely shouldn't be used on broken skin.
The gel is quite thick and clear in colour. It foams up really easily although I've found I need to use a bit more than with other S&G products so it may not last quite as long. I still don't use much compared to other shower gel brands though. The foam is nice and thick and leaves me feeling really clean and refreshed. It is slightly moisturising but I still need to use body lotion afterward but it didnt dry out my skin either.
I would recommend this shower gel as it smells gorgeous, foams up well and is really refreshing. However it is probably too strong for sensitive skin.
As a self confessed 'Soap and Glory' addict, I can rarely go into boots without being drawn to the aisle where all their cute, retro looking, candy coloured products sit in all their glory and seem to shout 'buy me!'. One of my favorite soap and glory products was the sugar crush body scrub, so when this body wash of the same name and scent came out I just had to try it out!
The 'sugar crush' scent is a lovely, fruity, zesty scent. I'm sure it's not to everyone's taste and is probably a 'love it or hate it' kind of smell as I know a few people who are really not a fan of this product! Personally I love it! When I shower in the morning I like to have a fresh fruity smell to wake me up a bit and leave me feeling nice and refreshed. This is perfect for that as the zesty fresh lime and kiwi water juice contents of it really shine through, but not in way that is too overpowering thanks to the underlying scents of vanilla and coconut. Personally I don't think body washes/ showe gels really do anything particularly amazing and all I look for in one is that it leaves me smelling nice and leaving my skin feeling fairly moisturised and this does just that.
When applied in the shower the white creamy body wash lathers up very nicely and you only need to use a small bit - a little bit goes a long way. It feels lovely on the skin leaving it feeling hydrated and moisturised. A great feature of this product is that it can also be used as a bubble bath - a 2 in 1 product! It comes in a pump dispenser which I think is perfect for bathroom use as it's easy to dispense and insures you don't use more than you actually need and therefore waste the product. It is of course packaged in Soap and Glory's signature retro, girly, quirky packaging which is one of the stand out features of the range in my opinion. Soap and glory products always look very asthetically pleasing sitting in my bathroom!
The one small downfall of this product is that after use the scent doesn't longer on the skin for a lengthy amount of time, however I think this is to be expected in most shower gel type products and doesn't really bother me too much.
I bought mine from Boots for £6.50 for a 500ml bottle which is worth it considering how long you can make it last. Soap and Glory are often on offer for 3 for 2 so keep an eye out for that if you want to give it a try. All in all I'm going to give this 5 stars. Probably my favorite body wash!
For Christmas my parents of course asked me about the gifts I'd like to receive. On a limited budget (aren't we all at the moment!?) one of things I rarely buy myself these days is stuff from the Soap & Glory range.
I am a huge fan of Soap & Glory products so of course I mentioned those to my parents however I was lucky enough to not just receive one set of the stuff but two as my Mum bought me a box set and quite unexpectedly my mate bought me the biggest set of Soap & Glory available in Boots and this was a product within that set!
This means now I have a bathroom full of Soap & Glory to use and I'm sure I'll be smelling sweet now for at least a year.....maybe even longer!
I however tend to be a big fan of the original scent of Soap & Glory products and to be honest when I looked at the packaging of this and it saying that it contained lime I did have a moment of thinking oh no! I don't really like fruity smelling bathing products and certainly don't want to feel my skin tingle however when recently I had a shower I decided to give it a whirl....and wow what a lovely, scrummy product this is!
I always like the quirky yet good quality packaging of the Soap & Glory Products and think they look very nice in my girly bathroom which was why I was drawn to them in the first place years ago!
The bottle is made of robust, light pink coloured plastic and to the top of there is a frosted white lever style 'arm' as to which you press the top of that to dispense the product out of. On the front of the bottle we are clearly told that it is Soap & Glory Sugar Crush 'Energy boosting citrus conditioning' and that it is a 'Fresh and foamy Body Wash' and that it contains Lime Oil, Coolcapsule X, Kiwi Juice Water & A Skin Softening Omega - Rich Veggie Oil and the size is stated which in this case is a very large 500ml bottle. Other information on the sides of the bottle include being told a bit about the product and how to use it, the ingredients are listed, we are told that from once opened to use the product up within 24 months and contact details for Soap & Glory are given. I really do like the appearance of this bottle and find it practical to use however some people may not appreciate not being able to see the product through the bottle so they know when it needs replacing, me I don't want to see half empty bottles of products hanging around my bathroom anyway and the the bottle is recyclable though the 'arm' section can be removed so me, I think that I will keep the bottle when the product has been used up and refill it with some sort of other shower product!
The Body Wash Itself:
The body wash is easily dispensed out of the bottle and a little of it really does go a very long way indeed. Its smooth, white in colour and looks a bit glossy and has the most wonderful aroma to it which really which I think is rather feminine. Mainly to me this smells of sweet smelling vanilla icecream in a way with a hint of the lime fragrance sort of wafting over the top of it. If I smell this straight from the bottle or once I have dispensed it onto say my scrunchy I do think this smells really too strong and like it has a sort of chemical aroma to it but once in use and rinsed off it really smells wonderful on my skin.
Like I say a little of this goes a very long way indeed, it feels very soft and moisturising in use and foams up really well. I love the aroma and was initially worried as previously mentioned that this may smell a bit too much of lime (I'm thinking of Original Source here!) or that it may may my skin tingle but it really doesn't!
I can shave my bits and pieces with this as well, it leaves my skin feeling smooth and above all I look and feel clean and smell it though the scent on my skin doesn't last all that long sadly. It rinses off with ease and we are told on the bottle to follow up if we want to with a body butter or lotion, something I don't feel the need to do after using this to be honest.
All In All:
Some people may think that at £6.50 a bottle that this is rather expensive compared to the fact that we can quite often find bargain shower products for ourselves on offer and in discount stores for around the pound mark....... However this is a fabulous quality body wash and in a huge size and I feel that this will last longer than probably a few bottles of cheaper shower products in the long run cos so little goes such a long way!
I love everything about it! It smells wonderful in use, is kind to my skin and cleans me up a treat and simply think that it is superb quality. I wouldn't have just gone out and bought this for the price it retails at without having tried it first because I'd of seen this as a bit too indulgent with watching my pennies as I do however I will certainly buy this again and so far this is my favourite ever product from this range!
I do think that this is best suited to women though because of the sweet scent and do feel it is very kind to my skin and probably any skin type so it comes with a huge thumbs up from me!
Available from Boots stores.

After a disappointing experience with a Boots sugar scrub, I decided to give one of the Soap and Glory's scrubs a go. After seeing many recommendations on dooyoo for the Soap and Glory range I picked up this Sugar Crush Scrub from Boots around 6 weeks ago on a 3 for 2. This is the first one I have tried and tests (2 others to go)! This is a review of the 300ml tub and not the pump dispenser as above and cost me £8. I think £8 is average in comparison to other products similar to this. After using this twice a week for 6 weeks I am coming to the end of the pot - but think this is good value for money still.
The Soap and Glory range cover products for the body, bath, scents, face, lips and eyes (pretty much the whole shebang then)! However they seem to be more well known for their quite extensive ranges of exfoliators/scrubs. Other scrubs in the range include: flake away, scrub em and leave em, pulp friction, breakfast scrub, scrub actually, the scrub of your life, some like is hot. In terms of the sugar crush product Soap and Glory also do a wash and a buttercream.
I chose this product as it was a sugar scrub and I wanted a very good and robust scrub to get rid of dead skin cells and leave smooth skin, ready for spray tanning (alas the sun has long gone)!
The Soap and Glory range is well known for it's retro styling and quirky titles. This scrub comes in a plastic pot with a pink lid and is very feminine in it's appeal I would say. You can see the product inside the tub so it's easy to know when you're running out.
The scrub itself is very thick in texture, with lots of brown sugar grains (thus the very brown colour) and the (more visible) macadamia grains. Unlike the Boots scrub I recently tried however it is not so thick that water bounces off it and there is almond oil in it which makes the texture feel a little bit more moisturising.
On opening the pot the smell instantly hits you - it is sweet and citrusy (sweet lime). The smell is very pungent and some people may find this a bit overpowering and sickly. I am not a big fan of sweet smells but I didn't find it too bad as once you've taken in the initial smell it tends to fade a bit, it is actually very pleasant.
The scrub is fairly easy to use. I use around a 50p pence piece blob for each of my legs, then each of my arms and then another blob for my body. For each section of my body I tend to scrub in circular motions for anywhere between 30-60 seconds, depending on the intensity I want. I use it with my hands but you could use a mitt or exfoliator glove for extra intensity. The scrub is recommended for use a few times a week and I tend to use twice a week prior to having a spray tan which seems to work well for me.
After scrubbing over my body I then rinse off. Sometimes with sugar scrubs this can take a long time but I found that this scrub washed off in under two minutes, which is ideal especially if using in the morning before work. Another bonus is that it doesn't leave a nasty filmy residue on the shower - whilst I clean my shower on a regular basis I don't think I could clean it twice a week! The particles also don't seem to block the drain from my experience so far.
A note from the manufacturers also warns you not to use this scrub straight after shaving your legs - as the scrub could sting! Ouch!
I do tend to get the odd spot here or there - especially on my back. I have found that using this the skin on my back is less congested. I have also found that my skin is smooth, yet not overdry (although obviously I still moisturise after use). Straight after I use this I find that my skin has a healthy glow although doesn't look too scrubbed (ie red).
*Are there any downsides?*
Not really. The colour is a bit murky and not that appealing, although if you are a fan of oatmeal you may like it (it looks a bit like oatmeal)! Also some people may not like the smell as it is very sweet and pungent, although it doesn't linger on the skin and as you only need a bit of this it isn't too overpowering. Also - I don't know much about nut allergies but if I was allergic to nuts would avoid this due to the obvious presence of nuts in the product.
Most definitely will be buying this again. Also cannot wait to delve into my two other pots (watch this space for further reviews)!
I really like Soap and Glory products but haven't tried anything new from the brand for ages, but then I had a sneaky sniff of this range in Boots recently, and loved it so much I ended up buying myself the Christmas gift set! So expect reviews of the whole lot on here shortly...
So to start with the body wash. This costs £6.50 for a 500ml bottle in Boots, but of course you need to look out for offers so you can get yourself a better deal. As with all Soap and Glory products the packaging has a quirky, retro look, and this comes in a bright pink bottle with fun graphics, and a pump action dispenser on the top. The body wash contains fresh lime and kiwi water juice, and is designed to cleanse and moisturise the skin.
Well my first impression was bad as the dispenser at the top of the bottle didn't work! So I had to unscrew the top and pour this out. It is a white wash, and has a creamy texture, that isn't too thick. It's very easy to apply to the skin and it certainly feels like a good quality product. But it is of course the smell that makes it. Sniffing this, it immediately reminds me of cocktails on a sunny day - completely inappropriate for chilly autumn nights and mornings! The over-riding scent for me is definitely of lime, and it has a real zingy sweetness to it. It's quite an unusual fragrance for a shower gel, but I really like it. I doubt this would be to everyone's taste as it is quite a strong scent, and if you prefer a fragrance to be more fresh and neutral then this wouldn't be for you!
After use, this leaves skin feeling soft and smelling sweet!
Overall I really like this body wash - it is good quality and it has a lovely, unique fragrance. However it is expensive and I would be very unlikely to buy this unless it was part of an offer. So for this reason it has to lose a star.
My very large collection of soap & glory products started off as a box set given to me for Christmas from my son, prior to receiving this gift i was always a fan of the dove products mainly because I knew with dove it is a quality product and brand name , I must say thou after trying soap & glory for the first time i was converted, I absolutely love the fresh fruity fragrance of sweet lime and its rich creamy texture, ever since that day I have bought nothing but soap & glory products it really is a brand that you can trust. I have no problems using any of the soap & glory range even thou I have sensitive skin that in the past has been plagued with dry itchy skin conditions .
I can honestly say I have everything in the soap & glory range from liquid soap, scrubs, masks, moisturisers, shampoo & conditioners, the shampoo used alone leaves my thick course hair soft sleek n shiny.
Soap & glory also do a makeup range which are the main contents in my make up bag.
Having said all that the soap & glory range are somewhat a lot pricier to other brands but are worth every penny, altho i do tend to purchase mine when boots have there 3 for 2 promotion.
What I particularly like about soap & glory's sugarcrush is that it comes in a 500ml pump dispenser bottle so you don't waste much unlike squeezy bottles, it also foams up pretty well so it's fare to say a little goes a long way. It leaves your skin feeling silky soft without the need to moisturise after if your in a hurry.
It's pretty pink bottle can be reused as the label is easily removed, which is a great way of recycling , i find on all there products they have a funny warning slogans which are quite comical to read , on this bottle it says ....nothing ruins the mood more than lime in your eye, rinse well with cool, clean water should these suds go astray.
To summarise this is a fresh n foamy sweet lime body wash with energy boosting citrus conditioners that soften the skin. It's main ingredients are lime oil, coolcapsule x, kiwi juice water and a skin softening omega-rich veggie oil. The price is £6.00 but will last for several weeks unlike other body washes , so in my opinion well worth the money but you will find that boots have plenty of promotions on the soap @ glory range so you will always be able to grab a bargain.
I would say it was suitable for everyone but .......I like my men to smell more masculine so best suited for the female population
I recently finished a tub of Sugar Crush scrub and loved the lime-y smell, so I bought some of the body wash recently on a 3 for 2 offer.
~Soap and Glory~
Soap and Glory are something of a mid-luxury brand, this body wash costs £6.50 on its own for 500ml. The range tend to be vintage style with distinctive pink packaging, and a range can be found at most Boots stores. The scents tend to be musky and floral and very unique. Personally I'm a huge fan of this brand and find their products to be high quality. (For my birthday last week my friends all bought me wine and Soap and Glory products - they know me well!)
S&G packaging is usually a distinctive pink with a vintage feel. The Sugar Crush Body Wash is certainly pink but differs from other products in that it is a bit 50s style in the font and lay out, but doesn't have a vintage woman picture on it. The front of the bottle tells you that it's 'freshly-squeezed sweet lime fragrance', 'energy boosting citrus conditioning' and containing 'lime juice, coolcapsule x, kiwi juice water and a skin softening omega-rich veggie oil'. So an emphasis on the lime/citrus flavour then! I have no idea what 'coolcapsule x' is. The rest of the packaging gives you usage instructions, and advises you not to get it in your eyes!
The bottle is a pump bottle. I tend to squirt around 3 pumps onto a shower pouffe and that's enough for a good wash. I like the pump bottle as I find it easy to use in the shower when your hands are wet, and the pump easily screws off so if you need to get the last bits out you can pour them out.
This product foams up like crazy! A few squirts goes a long way and foams up for a good all over wash. The body wash is a white colour. The smell is delicious - citrus-y lime and sugar. I think this is much sweeter than the scrub. I can't help but think it smells a bit like dolly mixtures! The body wash certainly leaves you feeling cleansed and fresh, and my skin does feel lovely and soft and smooth after showering with this product.
Overall this is a great sweet sharp smelling product that leaves you feeling very fresh and clean. I find this a great wash to use first thing in the morning or post-gym as it's so refreshing and zingy. A little bit goes a long way. And anybody who doesn't want to smell like sweets probably isn't worth knowing!
I am now onto my second bottle of Soap and Glory Sugar crush Body Wash. I bought the first bottle as it was reduced in price at the supermarket but since finishing that one off, I have been really forced to go out and buy a second bottle. I love this so much. I don't like all Soap and Glory products, if I am absolutely honest, and a few of them have been pretty horrible. This one, however, is so much nicer than the others and if you love the smell of fresh limes, then you are sure to love this super body wash.
I also love the face that not only can I use this in the shower (it works much better with a body puff) but I also can use it for a lovely invigorating bubble bath, if I am ever lucky enough or have the time to have a long bath during week days.
The gel itself comes in a pump action dispenser and it's quite thick in consistency. As I say, it works much more effectively in terms of lather and bubbles, if I use a body puff. The smell is possible the best thing about this lovely body wash. It really does smell of gorgeous fresh limes and the smell lingers on my skin for ages after my shower. My husband also loves to use this product and I always know when he has used it in the shower, as he smells strongly of limes when he comes downstairs.
It lathers well and I also love the way it moisturises and softens my skin. It's not dehydrating and it actually seems to really add moisture to my dry skin patches on my shins and tops of my arms. I don't think it's the sort of shower gel you are going to want to use if you are planning on a relaxing fragrance, nor would I use this before bed as I find it rather an invigorating and refreshing gel, but it's great to use in the shower first thing on a morning if you need a little help in waking up. The last bottle I bought cost me £6.50 from Boots, and though this seems like a lot of money to pay, the bottle is 500ml and as I hardly need to use any in order to create a huge amount of bubbles, it really does work out quite cost effective.
I am currently having a love affair with this product! Extreme reaction you say? You clearly haven't smelt it!
If you aren't all for florals or sickly sweet smells, this may be right up your street, how do I know?
Because I have just described myself and it is right up mine!
I know at first glance it looks pricey, but I cannot explain to you how much it's worth it. It's a fairly large bottle, and I know mine has lasted me a number of month (and I have not been scrimping with it whatsoever).
The smell it sweet, citrus, sharp, fresh and so much more; it's the most perfect holiday scent. But I would be lying if I said that I won't be using throughout winter!
Other than the scent, this body wash is incredibly moisturising; I suffer from (many) dry patches on my skin, specifically, my arms, and I find that this hydrates my skin nicely, so I don't look like a snake mid-shed when I hop out of the shower. (Quick side note: if you want to up the deliciousness even more then use the accompanying body butter after showering, I guarantee you'll be walking around like a nutcase sniffing your arms).
I am not normally a sweet scent sort of a girl but the citrus that cuts through, is just enough to make me fall in love with it. It's like the best smelling cola bottle sweets of all time!
I can't rave about this product enough. Soap and Glory, I love you.
I recently went to Boots for a body scrub and I love Soap & Glories sugar crush scrub I had a lot of points on my Boots card to spend and there was a 3 for 2 offer on as there often is. I like to but similarly scented things so I picked up this shower gel and also the body butter.
The shower gel costs £6.50 for 500ml. The packaging describes the product as an 'energy boosting citrus conditioning fresh and foamy body wash'. The scent is described as sweet lime. The gel contains lime oil, kiwi juice water to make the skin look radiant, omega rich vegetable oil and something called cool capsule x which is designed to cool and refresh the skin.
The shower gel also doubles up as a bath foam. Like other Soap & Glory gels this one comes in a large container with a pump action dispenser. For best results you should use the shower gel on a puff or sponge. The gel is a creamy white colour when it is dispensed and it is thick in consistency. If you use a body puff then a small amount goes a long way. The gel smells really nice. It is fresh and smells heavily of limes which I really like. You can actually feel it cooling on the skin as you wash. The gel produces a good lather.
After using this my skin felt really soft and smooth. The smell of lime lingered throughout the morning after use. My skin also felt moisturised and not tight like it feels after some shower gels.
I have also used this as a bubble bath a few pumps of the dispenser gives a good foam which lasts for the duration of my bath which is around 20 minutes.
I really like this shower gel, I like the container with the pump dispenser which is easy to use. I have been using this daily for about 3 months and I still have half the bottle left so even though it is expensive it lasts for a long time. 5 out of 5 from me.
If you have read my reviews before you will know that I love the soap and glory products so was excited to give this body wash a try I hadn't seen it before but as usual it smelt gorgeous!!
When I bought it they were on offer 3 for 2 so I got a bargain, if it hadn't been on offer it would have just cost me less than £7 which I think is expensive for a body wash although with soap and glory you are guaranteed quality.
I love browsing the Soap & Glory products in my local Boots Store. I've tried a lot of products from Soap & Glory in the past and I'm a huge fan of their body products, especially their body washes.
The great thing about this is that it has a pump dispenser on top which makes it easy to use in the shower.
When I used it that night I found I hardly needed any it really did go a long way and I only used 2 pumps for my whole body so I hope it will last me ages.
The bodywash lathered up really well I used one of their shower puffs which also was good and I think this helped lather it up more than normal. I used it directly onto my damp sking.To
The great thing about this was it felt lovely on my skin and I felt really nice and clean afterwards. As always the smell was gorgeous and stayed on my skin for a long time after. It also makes the bathroom smell nice which is a bonus... I think the body wash and other products feel luxorious and make you feel as if you are pampered.
