Soap & Glory Clean On Me Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel
Advantages: Divine scent, Luxurious lather,
Disadvantages: If you don't use with a shower puff you wont get that luxurious lather
Soap and Glory is a range that was launched back in 2006 by Marcia Kilgore (also the founder of Bliss spa). Marcia had a strong desire to create high quality bath, body and beauty products at affordable prices through a belief that "You shouldn't have to spend an arm and a leg just to moisturise one" and with the Soap and Glory range she almost certainly achieved this.
Anyone who has read any of my Soap and Glory reviews will know that I am a self confessed Soap and Glory Addict, I cannot get enough of their product, I have different bottles, tubes and tubs all around the bedroom and bathroom. Stashed away on shelves and in drawers you will even find spares for when I need to replace one. I love their bright, sassy, quirky packaging and I will admitt its probably one of the main features of the products which attracted me to them in the first place, that along with positive feed back from friends.
Knowing my addiction many friends and family members decided to fuel this addiction at Christmas by purchasing me Soap and Glory Gift sets and one of the products in one of these sets was a 500ml bottle of "Clean on Me" creamy clarifying shower gel.
Clean on me is described as a luxurious shower gel with a built in body lotion that will simultaneously clean and smooth your skin.
Now I really liked the idea of a built in moisturiser as with most shower gels that I have used in the past my skin has been left feeling dried out, tight and itchy and Ive found myself having to cover myself in moisturiser to relieve that itching sensation.
The shower gel itself comes in a clear plastic bottle with pump dispenser,
when it comes to shower products I do prefer the pump dispenser design, it means that you only need to push down on the pump aplicator to get the gel out so your not having to try and unscrew a bottle with wet hands making it all slippery and really difficult, it also means you can control how llittle or how much of the shower gel you want to use, saving on wastage.
The label on the bottle follows the usual Soap and Glory image that I assosiate with Soap and Glory products, its cute, sassy and uses quirky quotes and 1950s images. Its very girlie.
The gel itself is pale pink in colour and when you dispense the gel you discover that it is thicker in consistency than many shower gels out there, it feels soft, thick and creamy and far more luxurious than most gels I have used in the past
The scent of the gel is divine and as soon as your dispense the product your nose is treated to the gorgeous combined scent of strawberries, mandarin, bergamot and vanilla . Its a very femenine scent that fills the room as you wash.
Directions for use are simple: : apply a handful of clean on me to damp skin, rub into a thick luxurious lather and then rinse
The product also advises that you turn off the shower why you use to avoid the product being washed away although I just usually move out of the way of the direction of the shower head.
When using I personally find that two to three pumps of the cream gel is more than adequate to provide full body coverage although I would like to emphasise that this is with the combined use of a shower puff.
The first time I used this product I used my hands to rub the gel over my body and I was left disappointed that I was not getting that thick luxurious lather it claims to produce on the bottle. The second time round I decided to combine the gel with a Soap and Glory shower puff I had been given in one of my sets, I feel that this really is the key to be able to produce that thick, creamy lather with lots of bubbles as I have since tried this gel along side a sponge and a flanel and neither of them provided a lather that could match up to the shower puff.
so the results.
Well the shower gel is certainly invigorating, that luxurious lather helps to leave me fealing nice and clean, the gel works well at thoroughly cleansing my skin riding it of any dirt residue that I may have.
The skin is then left with that divine Soap and glory scent that fills the room as you shower and lingers on the skin for a good few hours which I really do love.
The moisturing effects the gel claims to have are also evident because as soon as I dry off my skin is left feeling soft and smooth instead of dried out like many shower gels leave your skin feeling.
Now even though my skin is left feeling moisturised after using this I stil personally like to apply either Soap and Glory Righteous butter or the Righteous butter lite onto my skin to help lock in that moisture and to make sure that that smooth, soft, moisturised feeling lasts.
All in all this is a really good product but just remember that if you do desire a rich, creamy lather than combine the gel with a shower puff or you are not going to get one and you will feel let down. I also feel that these shower puffs are great at aiding in exfolliation if you use enough pressure so this will also help to keep your skin smoothe too, added bonus!
You can purchase "Clean on Me" in two sizes
a 75 ml travel size bottle is £2.25p which I feel is Ideal for if you want to just try this product, it means you dont have to buy the full size bottle
You can also get a larger 500ml bottle for £5.00p. Now some may think that paying this amount for a shower gel is expensive but I feel the cost is justifiable. You only find yourself using a small amount each time so it will last. I find a 500ml bottle will last me between 3 - 4 months and thats using it on a daily basis
Yet again I have not been disappointed, another great product from the Soap and Glory range
