Soap & Glory Clean On Me Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel
Advantages: Smells gorgeous, Lathers well, Moisturises skin really well, Easy to dispense, Long lasting!
Disadvantages: None for me.
For Christmas, I received loads from the Soap and Glory range at Boots. I am glad I received so much as I am a huge fan of Soap and Glory as a brand, and I think their range smells great and works well. One of my all time favourite products of theirs is the 'Clean on Me' creamy clarifying shower gel. I had used this previously in the travel size and loved it, so I was thrilled to receive this huge bottle full of the stuff.
As mine was a gift, I obviously did not have to pay for this. I will start in noting that a full sized 500ml bottle retails at £5.50. This seems a little steep, but for the amount you get and how long it lasts, it is actually very reasonable! If you would like to test it out, you can purchase a travel sized shower gel which is £2.50 for a small 75ml bottle. Soap and Glory are exclusively stocked in Boots stores and their website if you are interested in getting your hands on this.
Soap and Glory as a brand are well known for their retro, girly designs and quirky names for bath and body products. 'Clean on Me' is no exception of this, with its catchy name and gorgeous retro style bottle. I think they are lovely to display around the bathroom. This particular shower gel comes in a tall, 500ml with a pink and white label displaying a retro lady which I love. The best thing about the design of this shower gel is that it is a pump dispenser, which saves fiddling around with lids when showering. I have found this much more convenient and quick when I'm in a rush in the mornings! (The travel sized version is just in a regular bottle).
Using this shower gel really is so simple thanks to the dispenser. I like to press down on it around five or six times, until I have a good sized amount in the palm of my hand. This is sufficient to cover all over my body, and it lathers up really well when applied to damp skin. Whilst using this, the gorgeous smell fills up the room, and it almost feels as if it is moisturising your body as well as just cleaning it. I really enjoy using this shower gel, and I feel that it holds a touch of luxury which perhaps basic shower gels do not.
The first reason I enjoyed this so much was because of its gorgeous scent. If you are a fan of Soap and Glory, you will be familiar with their original pink scent. It is difficult to describe, but it has a very clean scent as the name suggests. It has a slight floral hint but overall it is just a very clean scent. I really recommend going and having a sniff of some of their products because I couldn't possibly put into words how scrumptious the scent really is!
I like to use a body lotion or body butter about twice a week after I have showered. This is to make my skin soft and silky. Clean on Me is the first shower gel whereby I have never felt the need to moisturise the skin after. This is all down to its built in body lotion which really comes into effect when using. It left my skin clean, smelling great and so soft to touch. Technically, you get a 2 in 1 product as this is a shower gel which doubles up as a body lotion too.
Overall, I could not recommend this shower gel enough. Sure, £5.50 seems quite a lot but for 500ml this shower gel does last some time. It cleans the skin thoroughly, as well as moisturising the skin well thanks to its built in body lotion. It smells divine and I just couldn't fault this at all. Although this was a gift, I would be more than happy to go and buy another one once mine has ran out. A brilliant, quality product from Soap and Glory. Thanks for reading.
Summary: One of the best shower gels I've ever used.
