Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Scrub Mini (50ml)
This is my second pot of the mini soap and glory flake away body scrub - I received both in various gift sets at Christmas and I absolutely love soap and glory products and this is no exception!
- Product description (from Boots.com)
"Superhero-strength skin smoothing body exfoliator with shea butter, sweet almond oil, peach seed powder, sea salt and sugar. Flake AwayTM a spa-strength dry skin body scrub."
- About the product
The pot is 50ml and it is pink! I love the soap and glory packaging, it is so girly, cute and quite retro. Also I think the mini soap and glory products make great stocking fillers or secret santa presents. The main ingredients in this product are shea butter, sugar and peach seeds. Soap and glory product are made in the UK and they do not test on animals.
The scent of this product is just divine - I don't know anyone who doesn't like the scent of soap and glory products! The scent is supposed to be composed of bergamot, mandarin, amber, woody/musky notes and floral notes too. The scent overall is just amazing, sweet but not too sweet, in my opinion and it is not too strong or too subtle.
- Using the product and results
This is my second mini tub and I love this body scrub - although it doesn't take long at all to go through one mini tub. I use this product in the bath, shower or before a shower on dry skin for extra exfoliation. The body scrub is really quite grainy which I love as I find that some body scrubs are more body wash than body scrub. I use about a ten pence size amount of this product for each area such as arms, legs, chest etc. I also find that this product works really well as a foot and hand scrub. The scrub is really quick and easy to use and I find it works best in the shower and I feel like it really exfoliates my skin well but it is fairly gentle and it is not too abrasive for me - although I think this product will be a bit too harsh or some people especially those with sensitive skin.
The scrub works really well with my skin especially feet, elbows, legs etc and it cleans my skin well. After I have used this scrub I find that it does leave a film/layer on my skin like wax - which is strange and I don't really like the residue. The scent from this scrub does transfer to my skin but it doesn't last that long which is a little bit disappointing as the scent is gorgeous, in my opinion. This product leaves my skin silky smooth, soft and a bit hydrated too although after exfoliating I do use a good amount of body moisturiser anyway. Overall, a gorgeous fruity sweet scent, an abrasive (but fairly gentle) scrub and really smooth skin - a fantastic product from Soap & Glory, highly recommended. Also the mini size is great for travelling with and it is great if you want to try the product before potentially buying the full size.
- Price and availability
This product can be bought as part of a gift set and it can be bought individually for £2.50 which I think is a good price but I do go through the one mini tub really quite quickly so it may be more economical for me to buy the larger 300ml tub which is priced at £7. This product is available at Boots.com, boots stores and eBay.
