Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash
Advantages: lasts well, scent, cleanses and refreshes, soft skin
Disadvantages: initial price
Sugar Crush is one of several body washes in the Soap and Glory range. This body wash is marketed as being a 'fresh and foamy' bodywash. It has a 'Coolcapsule X' formula which helps refresh and cool the skin. Other ingredients include kiwi water juice for its radiance-boosting properties, lime oil and omega-rich veggie oil. This body wash also has a 'M Suds' formula and skin conditioners.
Soap and Glory products are not tested on animals. There is a matching body scrub and body butter available.
I love S&G packaging. This particular body wash is presented in a tall, pink bottle with bright writing. It is quite eyecatching. There is a convenient pump dispenser included making it ideal for using in the shower. The bottle can be recycled and this product has a 24month shelf life from first use.
~Price and Availability~
Sugar Crush is available in a 500ml size from Boots and www.boots.com priced at £6.50.
Whilst out Christmas shopping back in October, I treated myself to a few Soap and Glory products as part of a 3 for 2 offer in Boots. I was keen to try Sugar Crush body wash as I have tried every other body wash from this brand. I'm sure most would be shocked by the amount of different body wash products I have in my bathroom. I like a bit of variation and this particular shower gel is one of my 'morning time' shower gels for various reasons.
The pump dispenser works effectively at releasing the body wash. I normally find two pumps of this body wash on my body puff is more than sufficient to cleanse my skin. The body wash has quite a thin consistency but is light and creamy. A little goes a long way. This body wash feels very pleasant and slightly indulgent to use. A soft, creamy lather is created with very little effort and the body wash does feel cooling against my often irritated skin. It is a very gentle body wash which is kind to my dry, sensitive skin.
The main appeal of this body wash is the fragrance. As soon as it starts to lather up on my skin and mix with the water, a rich, citrussy aroma with a creamy undertone is released. The lime oil is definitely noticeable and whilst it won't be for everyone, I find it sweet, bright and very fresh smelling. It is definitely a wake up sort of scent which is perfect for use in the warmer months but also as a way to brighten up a dark Winter morning. The fragrance fills my bathroom and smells absolutely gorgeous. It is quite exotic smelling and would be perfect for using whilst on holiday.
The lather rinses well from my skin and leaves no residue. Once dried off my skin feels refreshed and clean. I would say that this body wash does a good job of leaving most of my skin soft and hydrated but a body moisturiser is needed for the rougher areas of skin. A sweet, subtle lime scent lingers on my skin for a short while but doesn't interfere with my perfume of choice which I like.
I love using this body wash as it feels good and smells amazing. I have used my 500ml bottle a lot since buying it and it is still half full so it is definitely worth the initial £6.50 cost in my opinion. I do personally prefer Clean On Me offered by S&G but Sugar Crush is still a fab body wash to use as the scent makes it a little different.
Thanks for reading :)
