Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Scrub
Advantages: great scrubbing power, lovely fragrance
This was the second Christmas I have received the largest Soap and Glory gift set from Boots and this Flake Away body polish was one of the products inside. I have also recently received another tub for my birthday from a friend so though it was a good time to finally get it out and give it a try. I do not tend to use body polishes or scrubs very often as I find they can dry my skin out a little too much but if I have a big night out planned or want to apply fake tan then a good scrub is usually on my to do list.
The Flake Away body polish comes in a 300ml Pink tub. The label on the top of the tub has a black and white picture of a ladies legs and a couple of slogans saying that a ladies legs should never be 'scaly'. On the front label of the tub there is the Soap and Glory logo and a brief description of the product.
The back label gives directions for use, full ingredients listings and a warning not to use the polish on irritated skin or abrasions as the salt scrubs can sting.
The screw on lid is easy to remove to reveal the body polish inside, the polish is very thick in consistency to the point where you can hold the tub upside down and the polish does not move at all.
Although my butter up cream came as part of a gift set an individual 300ml tub in Boots will cost £6.64. It is worth looking out for special offers, there is often a 3 for 2 offer at Boots on the Soap and Glory products.
I know this is not the cheapest body polish but you only need to use a small amount to give your skin a much needed scrub.
The polish contains shea butter, sugar, peach seed powder, sea salt, and grapseseed and almond oils. The fragrance of the cream is gorgeous, as tends to be the case with all of the Soap and Glory products that I have tried so far. The fragrance is of sweet peaches and shea butter, it is quite a strong fragrance but very yummy. I generally use this polish in the shower when I am getting ready for a night out. The polish leaves my skin lovely and smooth and smelling gorgeous.
~~~~~How to Use~~~~~
The polish is said to get rid of flaky old skin and is recommended to use on damp skin in the bath or shower. You should massage the polish in circular motions until the grains begin to diminish. I did find when using the polish that the grains did not really seem to disappear like it said they would but to me this was not a negative thing.
After using the scrub you do need to rinse it off your skin really well, I tend to rinse it off with just water then use some shower gel to get rid of any salt scrubs still hanging on. As recommended I always follow with some good moisturiser to help rehydrate my skin after its scrub.
For me this is a fantastic body polish with a lovely sweet fragrance. I do often suffer from dry skin especially in the colder winter months and this polish is not only easy to use it leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to have softer and smoother skin and especially before using fake tan as it helps to stop streaks from occurring or making dry patches so noticeable.
Summary: a brilliant little body polish
