Since I sampled my first Soap and Glory product a couple of years back and instantly fell in love with the brand, I always ensure it’s at the top of Christmas list every year and this is one product I received in a gift set this year.
This normally retails for £6.50 and it is available from Boots, Amazon, eBay and Soap and Glory direct, this price is for a 250ml bottle. What I like about the range is that it is frequently has promotions running such as 3 for 2 and there are also a lot of gift sets available which offer some good savings.
The bottle is quite tall, with a slim neck; it is white in colour and topped with a silver spray top lid. To the front of the bottle is the brand in black, pink and white writing, I must admit the bottle is quite pretty looking. The fragrance is a little different to the other Soap & Glory moisturisers I have used before, this one is a mixture of peach, strawberry, jasmine, mandarin and musk, I must admit, I cannot pick out any of the notes individually however this does smell rather nice – although it is a little faint for my liking and a few hours after applying, I cannot smell on my skin anymore.
One thing that does annoy me about this is that the spray needs a bit of force to operate so after the first squirt and my hands are a little greasy; I find my hands just slip down the bottle. Having said that, I do find applying this is quite quick and the milk like fluid does absorb really easily into my skin and leaves my skin looking soft and hydrated all day long.
Overall, I quite like this however I much prefer their creams and butters so this only gets 4 out 5 stars from me.
Thanks for reading.
I love this stuff, smells gorgeous and gives a bit of moisture to the skin. Perfect for summer when your skin needs something but you don't want anything too heavy.
I have somehow managed to get two bottles of this, one is a smaller 100ml bottle which comes in the gift sets, and a friend bought me a full sized one for Christmas last year. I was planning on keeping the full sized one for use later, but my mum was checking what I had received and opened it. Thankfully, this moisturising spray does have a shelf life is 24 months after opening. I was drawn to this product though in that as this was a spray, it would be easy to use and would be handy to use after a bath/shower if I was in a hurry but wanted some extra moisture.
I may be potentially revealing my blonde side, but I didn't know whether to use this straight after the shower, like I do with a body butter or baby oil, or whether it works on dry skin. As I couldn't find any instructions on the bottle to say whether or not to use this on wet or dry skin, I tried both. When I used it on wet skin, the moisturiser slid off my skin, so I have been using it on dry skin.
I like Soap and Glory products on the whole, and I love the fresh scent that a lot of their products have. As my friend once described, Soap and Glory products on the whole smell 'clean' and I do understand what she meant by that comment. This moisturising mist is scented with a blend of bergamot, peach, strawberry, jasmine, mandarin and musk, which means that it has a really fresh, fruity scent. When I spray this, the peach is the scent that I can detect most, and disappointingly, I can't really detect the mandarin and strawberry (two of my favourite scents). I love the fresh, fruity scent of this spray and I find that the scent does really last on my skin as well, in fact, the next morning I can still detect the musky scent of this on my skin. Apparently "Sensible men have been driven to dizziness by this moisturising scented mist" but as I am currently single, this lotion hasn't helped with the man attraction (maybe I should start using this when I am on dates?). This does smell quite similar to the 'Clean on me' shower gel, so would be ideal for layering with this.
I do find that the spray on this lotion makes it easy to apply, even with wet hands, as you just spray and rub it in. It also means that you can control how much of this that you use, as you just spray it where you need most moisture. Maybe the first couple of times you use it,(as I did) you might spray too much on, but you soon get used to how much you need each time. The spray is a thin, light lotion but thankfully it's not so thin that it drips before you are able to rub it in. I also did find that it only took seconds to dry after application, so no standing around naked for 10 minutes waiting for your moisturiser to dry.
Initially, I did find that this felt slightly greasy on my skin, but the next morning, it had soaked in and left behind slightly softer feeling skin. I don't like that slightly greasy feeling that I get with some moisturisers, with this one, I did feel the difference in my skin.
This costs £6.50 from Boots but often on a three for two, which means you can stock up for less. Boots also kindly send me vouchers every new months for extra points when I buy Soap and Glory so it's another incentive for me to buy more. The range is also stocked at Harvey Nichols and at time of writing, it is on sale on the website for £5.20.
Soap and Glory only test on humans, not animals (though I do have to ask the question, how do I volunteer my services as a tester?).
I do like this spray, but it wouldn't be something that I would buy myself, as I don't really need additional moisture most of the time, as my skin tends to be on the oily side. If you suffer from dry skin though, I think this would be ideal. I will probably use up the two bottles, as I hate wastage, but if I received any more bottles, they may be donated to the charity shop - might sound awful as after all, I appreciate any gifts, but I'm sure that others love this it's just not perfect for me.
I am usually a fan of the thicker body creams that are available and would not have chosen to purchase this myself, but received it as part of a set as a gift. At first glance, the packaging is lovely as with all Soap and Glory products - a nice sleek canister with a witty name emblazoned stylishly on the front, and a feminine pink lid. The product has a spray nozzle which you depress to get a mist of moisturiser.
The nozzle depresses very easily and dispenses a good amount of product - you get plenty to apply to your skin but not so much that you end up running out of places to put it. The consistency is liquid with a slight oiliness to it, but not greasy. I found that the flirtigo mist soaks in to skin nicely with a little gentle rubbing, and leaves a nice sheen to the skin. It doesn't feel greasy and didn't transfer onto clothing. The fragrance of this product is similar to other Soap and Glory products - light and fresh with a hint of fruitiness to it without being overpowering.
After use I felt that my skin looked lovely and had a real glow without looking as though a lot of product had been applied (in other words the effect was quite natural). I didn't feel as though my skin had been deeply moisturised but it felt smooth and soft. I think this product is probably not one for everyday use (especially in winter when a thicker moisturiser is required) but is a nice product to apply before a special event to give a healthy glow. It is very easy to use and apply quickly without mess, and it did seem to last a while. I think this is a nice alternative to a body oil - it gives the same sort of finish to the skin without the greasiness.
Soap and Glory's Flirtigo spray-on body moisturising mist was one of the first products I used from Soap and Glory and I have had a few bottles since, all of which I have received in gift sets.
~ Packaging ~
It comes in a white plastic bottle, which is tall and thin narrowing at the top. There is a spray dispenser pump on the top and a clear plastic lid sits over the top of it.
The front of the bottle has a pink cloud shape with, 'Soap and Glory Flirtigo 100ml' written in.
Underneath there is a pink rectangle with the words, 'spray-on body moisturising mist' and there are white stars, which surround the round pink Soap & Glory logo underneath.
All of the writing on the bottle is quite small.
On the back are the directions, 'Do your own flirty work: Spritz Flirtigo on all-over post shower for temptingly fragrant, softer, smoother, more supple skin.'
Below this are a list of ingredients, company address and website address in much smaller writing.
~ In use ~
Soap and Glory products have their own unique scent. There is a sweetness to it, without it smelling cheap, but it also has a slightly sharper floral scent. I really like the scent.
The body mist is really nice to use.
If you hold the bottle close to your skin when you are spraying it I find that quite a lot comes out onto your skin. You can even see a thin white coloured liquid on your skin and it needs to be rubbed in or else your skin is left feeling wet and sticky.
If you hold the bottle about 40cm from your skin when spraying it, there is space for a much lighter mist to develop and it hits your skin as a fine mist, but it does feel like you are wasting quite a bit of the mist this way as a lot of it falls to the floor as it disperses.
It has that lovely distinctive Soap and Glory scent and it feels as though it is helping to refresh, hydrate and moisturise my skin.
It rubs into my skin easily without leaving behind any residue, but the sweet scent does linger on my skin for a few hours after spraying.
I used to carry a bottle of this around in my handbag and use it to freshen up and rehydrate my skin during the day, but one day it leaked all over my bag so I always just use it at home now.
~ Price and availability ~
My bottle of Flirtigo is 100ml and was from a gift set, but the full size 250ml bottle is available to buy from Boots for £6.50.
I think this is quite expensive for what it is and although I like the product and enjoy using it I don't think I would buy it for myself at this price.
Soap and Glory products are often on 3 for 2 offers, but they wouldn't have to be if they were priced appropriately in the first place. While I do think their scrubs are well worth the asking price,I don't think, for me, a moisturising mist by any brand would be worth paying so much for. I have used similar products in the past that only cost £1.00.
~ Conclusion ~
This is a nice moisturising body mist, with a lovely sweet scent.
It makes my skin feel refreshed and hydrated. It sinks into my skin quickly and the scent lingers on my skin for a few hours.
I do enjoy using this moisturising mist, but I think at £6.50 for 250ml, it is quite expensive and although I feel some Soap and Glory products are great and are worth the money, I don't think this moisturising mist is worth paying so much for.
Soap & Glory Flirtigo Body Moisturising Mist
This was another one of my items from the Soap and Glory gift set
This follows the retro theme of the Soap and Glory range, but has a pale pink colour, and has the most amazing retro 50s style photo on the front of the bottle.
This is at first hard to describe, it is not a perfume, nor is it a body spray, but an in between of a mist, light, and delicate.
The mist just sprays easily and can be used as a freshener, it is lighter than a body butter, but not as heavy duty, as once sprayed to the skin it gives a lovely sheen, and if you have used any previous products, such as shower gel, bubble bath or butter this further enhances the smell of the soap and glory fragrance.
The spray has a mixture of bergamot, peach, strawberry, musk and mandarin, although the musk is generally a heavy smell, when it is combined with these fragrances, it just falls into place and no fragrance tries to overtake the others.
Although mine was within the set, this can be purchased for around £5 from most Boots Stores.
=Would I recommend=
I would highly recommend this spray, as I find it is dual action, from a mist to give my skin a little treat, through to using this as a perfume for days when I want some perfume on, but not a strong fragrance, just something that is light enough to be there,
This is a nice product that comes in a pretty bottle and smells lovely but I'm not quite sure what to use it for. It is like a watery moisturiser that you spray on your skin and then rub it in to leave your skin feeling softer.
However, I don't feel this is thick enough to use as a moisturiser but is too heavy to use as a body spray. I didn't think it absorbed very well and didn't really help my skin (although my skin is quite dry).
It did smell beautiful and flowery but I didn't think the scent lasted very long, which again makes me feel it can't really be used as a fragrance.
To me this product is just an added bit of faffing when i come out of the shower. My beauty routine already takes long enough without adding this into it as I would still have to use a moisturiser and I just don't think this is worth the price.
Flirtigo or Girligo as it is now know, is a spray on body moisturising mist with fragrance that men will love - according to S&G, anyway! It is basically a mix of a moisturiser and a body spray and is available from Boots or Ebay priced at £6.50 for 100ml.
The liquid comes in a spray bottle which is contoured which helps with application of this. The liquid comes out in a light watery mist which is easily rubbed in and absorbed into the skin. Around 4 sprays is needed per limb, on my body. The fragrance of this is quite strong (those with asthma or respiratory problems, I would probably avoid this) - I'm not sure if it lives up to its claim of being able to attract men, but it does smell nice! It doesn't smell a typical synthetic body product, it actually smells like a decent perfume and the musky tones are very noticeable. When using this after showering, an additional perfume or body spray is not needed as this would result is a bizarre mix of scents, so I would avoid this if you like to wear perfume on a daily basis!
The mist is lightly moisturising, obviously due to the nature of this product it isn't overly conditioning but it is suitable for everyday use. Because of this I wouldn't recommend this to people with dry skin, or who prefer a more nourishing body cream. My skin does still feel moisturised at the end of the day, after using this, and the fragrance is still vaguely noticeable.
The mist doesn't leave my skin sticky or tacky and I am able to dress straight away after using this. I have never experienced any skin irritations whilst using this.
Overall, this is a nice, slightly different product. I am not sure it worth £6.50, however, but I would purchase this again if I saw it on offer. I recommend this to those who like fragranced, light moisturisers.
4 Stars due to the price
Some people may have now found that I am a bit of a fan of all things bath and body. To continue in my search for the best products I tend to buy gift sets, which give me the opportunity to often test a number of products at a collectively reduced price. I had purchased the Soaper Heros gift set, a collection of some of Soap and Glory's best products, contained in the set was a 100 ml bottle of Girligo, a new name for the product formerly known as Flirtigo.
*** A Little About Soap and Glory***
This doesn't seem to be too well known, but Soap and Glory is created by the same person (Marcia) that released the Bliss Spa products, which are about three times the price of Soap and Glory! She wanted to create a range that was more affordable, but still with the Bliss Spa philiosophy, with the idea that 'you shouldn't have to spend an arm and a leg to moisturise one.'
From small beginnings focusing on bath and shower products, Soap and Glory's range now encompasses make up, perfume, skincare and haircare. Soap and Glory have gone to receive cult status due to their retro and kitsch packaging, fab smelling products and entertaining strap lines.
*** Packaging - Good to go? ***
As previously mentioned, I own the 100 ml bottle of the spray which can be purchased separately, a 250 ml bottle is also available. The larger bottle comes in a card box with a retro design with photos of a glamourous woman most likely from the 1950s/ 1960s. The smaller bottle comes without the box, but has the same curved retro shape. The bottle itself is white plastic, but it is not super opaque, so you can see how much spray you have left, when you hold the product up to the light. Like I had previously stated in the Mist You Madly, the slightly unadventurous bottle and sticker does cheapen the look of the product slightly, and is slightly uninspiring compared to most of their other products.
However, more important to me is not the look of the packaging, but if it makes the product easy to use. The 100 ml bottle is small enough to fit in a handbag, making it great for travel. The product is a non-pressurised spray. To prevent the spray going everywhere, there is a securely fitting clear plastic lid that firs over the spray itself. The bottle is easy to grip, and the spray itself operates smoothly to dispense a fine mist of product.
*** Is the scent suitably girly/ flirty as the name would suggest? ***
The scent is certainly young and fruity, to try and give an idea of what the spray smells like I have included the list of notes from Soap and Glory's page, and is the same as their original pink range.
Bergamot and Peach
Strawberry and Jasmine
Mandarin and Musk
I personally find the notes quite hard to distinguish, particularly when compared to the Mist You Madly spray. However for me the peach and strawberry definitely stand out, I can also detect that there is something other than just fruit which may be a combination of the jasmine and/ or the musk, but I can't identify whether that is due to the jasmine, the musk or both. Soap and Glory give the impression with giving top, heart and base notes, that the scent develops over time, which it does slightly, becoming less of the strawberry and peach, but by the time this is noticeable the whole scent has just faded into a fruity-floral musk.
The scent doesn't last as long as the other spray, Mist you Madly on my skin, I would say the scent is no longer noticeable after 45 minutes to an hour. Neither do I feel like this spray projects as well as Mist You Madly.
*** Moisturising Properties ***
The main reason I love this product is the convenience, a quick spray and rub in, means I can top up on my moisturiser throughout the day. In fact I normally keep this in a gym/ swim bag, so I can quickly rehydrate my skin after exercise. The product makes moisturising, quick, easy and relatively mess free.
When spraying the product onto the skin it has a similar colour and consistency to milk. It is thin and is easily absorbed into the skin. The skin on my limbs does feel softer, however it is nowhere near as moisturising as a body lotion or body butter, so I prefer to use this to top - up, rather than my main moisturising product. If i was to use this as my main moisturiser, I would probably want to top up every three to four hours to keep my skin soft and supple.
I have currently used a third of my bottle, I have been using it on my limbs once to twice a week, over the past six weeks. Compared to my bottle of Mist You Madly, I did find I needed a lot more product per application, so for me as just a spray, this isn't as economical.
*** Price, Availability and Other Products ***
Soap and Glory can be found in stores at Boots and Harvey Nichols, as well as online at ASOS, and I have always found this product easy to find in stores.
The price for a 250 ml bottle is £6.38, or £3.11 for the 100 ml, this making the 250 ml slightly better value.
Other products to go with this scent, the original pink range, are hard to identify, but I have always found them easy to find in stores. These include:
Clean On Me Shower Gel - a sweeter, more perfumed spray than Girliglo, but an exceptionally popular product that has one best shower gel by a number of beauty awards voted by readers.
The Righteous Butter - Smells like Clean on Me and has won countless awards, in my opinion, it is every bit as good as those rewards claim it to be.
Eau de Soap and Glory Number One - This can be a little harder to find, I have never owned it, but I have tested it and it smells very nice and fits in with the range well.
*** Recommended? ***
I would recommend this fun and fruity mist. Particularly if you find it hard to get into a good moisturising routine, or your skin needs a quick moisture boost throughout the day. However trying to satisfy both camps of body spray and moisturiser I feel that the product lacks a bit in both of these areas, so I'm deducting one star.
This review is also posted on Ciao under the same username.
Another S&G item found in the xmas box on offer in Boots last year.
The product is in typical S&G style. I have the travel size which is perfect for handbags and suitcases. The bottle is easy to hold when squirting (some bottles need two hands but this one doesn't).
The product is a moisturising body mist. I don't normally go for products such as these as my skin borders on the dry and I find thicker creams are more effective.
I use by spraying on and rubbing in, the mist leaves your skin with a little glow so the appearance of your skin is immediately improved. It also isn't greasy so it wont mark your clothes or mess up longer hair. The scent is nice and subtle so if you don't want to wear perfume, this is pleasant enough.
However, as a moisturiser, I would not recommend it as your only moisturiser as I think every skin needs something a little more intense. As a one off for occasions where you are pushed for time and you don't have time to wait for moisturiser to be absorbed before dressing, then this is a reasonable product. I probably wouldn't advise that you bring it as a replacement for your normal moisturiser on holiday when your skin may be drier from the sun in any event. It would be good as a top up to give a skin an extra sheen
For christmas this year I received a whole santa sack full of soap&glory products and one of my favourite has got to be the girligo body mist. It's a really innovative product from soap&glory and really stands out from its other products for numerous reasons. Obviously, due to me receiving this product as a gift, I have had to do some research of my own to find out the price to see if this product really is worth it.
Owing to the fact that the mist came as part of a set I did not receive the tall cardboard box packaging as it came in a plastic packaging which housed the whole set. The actual bottle itself is a really modern, sleek shape so it looks excellent on my dressing table along with my makeup and perfume bottles etc. The bottle is a squeezy plastic material making it durable. It has a squirty nosel and a plastic opague lid. The design of the bottle itself, is again really modern and funky; typical of soap&glory products. My body mist came in a 100ml bottle, I still have over half the product left and received it at christmas and I do use it a lot so I think the size is perfect.
The mist itself is highly perfumed and it lasts for hours; the smell is really pleasant. It isn't sticky in substance and can be easily removed with water. It is transparent on the skin and adds a perfect sheen. This product can be used as a substitute for perfume, to freshen up a day to night look, to be used as a hair product to make your hair smell fragranced and also can be used on freshly tanned legs/arm/chest to add shine before a bit night out. Thw added shine to the skin makes the skin look really healthy as it gives the skin a glow.
The mist also doubles up a moisturiser, so as well as making you smell good it makes you feel good also. Your skin is left really soft even after removal of the mist.
As previously stated I did some research into the price of the product. At Boots this product retails for £6.38 which I think is a great price considering some perfumes are £30-£40! I would definitely recommend this product to a friend as it is really girly and unique and has dual advantages. I award this product 5 stars.
As you are no doubt aware I am a real fan of the Soap and Glory range and whilst I have had a few disappointments I am generally quite pleased with their products. My family are never lost for ideas on what to buy me for birthdays and Christmas because as well as Betty Boop figurines I always do extremely well with toiletries. My birthday in September saw me receiving a beautiful basket full of Soap and Glory products from my husband and the item I am discussing today is their Spray-on Body Moisturising Mist.
APPEARANCE OF THE PRODUCT
My narrow white opaque plastic bottle contains 100ml of mist and as far as Soap and Glory products go is considerably toned down in comparison with the large amount of unnecessary clutter that we generally receive. The familiar pink coloured Soap and Glory logo is situated in the lower section together with the name of the product. The container is quite eye-catching with its' appearance being somewhat similar to a wine bottle where the upper section tapers where we see a chrome coloured area on which the dispensing unit sits.
USING THE MOISTURISING MIST
We are provided will a few directions on the reverse of the bottle where we are informed to apply the mist post-shower for "tempting fragrant, softer, smoother, more supple skin". Ever since I was a child I have always adored beauty products so I couldn't wait to try out this product, particularly as I'm a real fan of the unique Soap and Glory fragrance.
The pump dispenser is covered with a transparent plastic lid that tightly fits on the product, which is a huge bonus particularly as I own many products where the lids simply refuse to stay secure. The pump dispenser requires only one short press to release a fairly generous spray of the beautifully fragranced mist, which covers a good three squared inches of my skin with just one application. If you are familiar with the Soap and Glory range you will instantly recognise that the aroma is almost identical to both the Hand Food and Hair Supply, which is what initially attracted me to this range.
MY OPINION AND ITS' EFFECTS
The beautifully fragranced mist that is released is very cooling on the skin and to be totally honest, although it is intended that the product be gently massaged, on the first few occasions that I used the mist I left it on the skin's surface to work its' own magic. The mist is white in colour and glistens for a couple of minutes before it soaks in, which surprised me, as I had expected it to take quite a while. As I was unaware of the contents of the fragrance I checked online and learned that the mist contains bergamot, peach, strawberry, jasmine, mandarin and musk. Whilst I am not a fan of heavy musky fragrances, it is fairly subtle and most definitely a calming and very relaxing scent.
The mist did not feel greasy on my skin and within only a short space of time I could feel its' effects, as my skin felt extremely soft and moisturised. Having said that my skin is generally fairly soft and smooth other than my elbows and heels, which occasionally become a little rough, particularly in colder weather and if I've spent quite a lot of time indoors in a centrally heated house or office. This is a gorgeous product and most definitely comes with my full recommendation. As stated, my bottle contains 100ml of mist and consequently, is an ideal size for keeping in your handbag if you should wish to reapply during the day. The fragrance lingers on my skin for a couple of hours after use and that is one of the reasons why I love this product so much, particularly as the aroma is simply stunning.
The mist should be used within 24 months of opening and the bottle can be recycled once empty. You may not be aware, but Soap and Glory do not test any of their products on animals and there is some quirky information on the reverse of the bottle advising us that they've tested the product on many women! The list of ingredients contained within this product is huge, so for obvious reasons I do not intend copying them into this review. However, I can say that I have never suffered any adverse reactions when using.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
You can purchase Soap and Glory products in larger branches of Boots where you will often find them on offer for three for the price of two. A full sized bottle containing 250ml of Body Moisturising Mist will cost you £6.25, which in my opinion is a little pricey. Consequently, I will always wait for the offers and stock up on my favourite products. For the moisturising properties and fragrance this product receives 5 stars from me, but unfortunately, loses one due to its' high price tag.
I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
Over the months that I have been using dooyoo, I've realised that Soap and Glory is extremely popular amongst a lot of users! So when I discovered half a bottle of Flirtigo sitting forgotten in the back of a drawer, I thought I must start using it again and write a review!
The most noticeable thing about Soap and Glory products is the packaging. They are all pale cream and pink, with a fun retro look and feel. Lots of the products have dodgy puns in the names, such as Clean On Me shower gel and The Greatest Scrub of All exfoliator. The products can be found in Boots, Harvey Nichols and on asos.com, and are mid-range in price. And you can get everything from perfumes and lip gloss to face wash and body butters.
My review is for Flirtigo, which is a spray-on moisturising mist. I got the product a year or so ago as part of a gift set, and it comes in a 100ml bottle. But I think the full size bottle is 250ml and is about £6 or so in Boots.
As with the whole range the bottle looks cute. It's slim and slinky and is very simply illustrated. The back claims the the mist will leave skin fragrant, softer, smoother and more supple.
The product has a cap on the top, covering a simple pump action spray. As you press the spray, the mist is very light and fine. If you spray the product on up-close, it leaves a slight film of cream on your skin, which is a little watery but is incredibly easy to rub in. and if you spray from a little further away, you barely need to run the spray in at all as it gently coats your skin in a fine mist of the product.
After use it definitely leaves skin feeling a lot softer and moisturised - but I would say the affects are similar to that of a light lotion than a richer body butter.
But the very best thing about this product is the smell, which is simply gorgeous. The product contains a blend of bergamot, peach, strawberry, jasmine, mandarin, so it's obviously quite a fruity smell, but a little musky too and just delicious. The scent lingers really nicely on the skin, and I would say you definitely do not need to use a perfume afterwards.
I am so glad I rediscovered this product. It is fun and easy to use, and it smells wonderful. It makes me want to stock up on a few more Soap and Glory products too, so no doubt I'll be checking out a few other reviews on here soon!
I would also recommend checking out the company's website which is lots of fun - and full of temptation!
I have had a bottle of Flirtigo sitting on my dresser for ages. That by no means makes it a bad product though! Flirtigo is a moisturisng mist in a spray bottle and its a really cunning idea from the makers of soap & glory, its just not something I like to use everyday.
Flirtigo comes in the usual soap and glory pink 50's style. What I love about this product is that it comes in a box. I know some people will think that this is a waste of packaging but I think it makes it seem much more expensive and stylish. I also like the fact that alot of the writing and soap & glory witt is saved for the box, where as the bottle inside looks simple and stylish and doesnt look too out of place alongside my perfume bottles.
I just had a quick look on boots to see how much this product cost (as I said I have had mine along time) and it looks like its names been changed to girligo. To investigate further I had a quick rumage through the hatbox I bought myself before christmas and found a small bottle of girligo. I had a quick spritz and as far as I can tell its exactly the same. No idea why they changed the name but a 250ml bottle of girligo will set you back 6.00. Whether girligo is available to buy individually in travel sized bottles I'm not sure but they do appear in the gift sets!
The box claims that flirtigo is scented with a mix of 'bergamot, peach, strawberry, jasmine, mandarin and musk'. Now in my opinion thats alot of smells to mix together and with that combination you would think it would smell flowery and fruity. However, to me it smells pretty much the same as the other pink soap & glory range there might be something slightly different about it, but not enough to be noticeable.
The back of the bottle says 'do your own flirty work: spritz flirtigo on all-over post shower for temptingly fragrant, sofrt, smoother more supple skin' Quite a big claim for just a moisturising mist. The bottle is right in saying to use it straight after a shower. I find this is when it works best. After you have had a shower just hold away from you a little bit and spritz all over, letting a fine moisturising mist descend on to your skin. I must admit one thing....the fact its a spray makes it really handy for moisturising your back!
Flirtigo is definitely for the more lazy soles out there and I think soap & glory have hit on a bit of a niche market as we all love a shortcut from time to time! Flirtigo is perfect to use straight out the shower so you can have soft skin without the hassle of sitting down with a tub of moisturiser all the time. Aftert using Flirtigo, my skin feels noticeably softer, though not quite as soft as a normal moisturiser. The flirtigo smell also stays on your skin for quite a long time after spraying it which is really nice. Personally, I use this when I really cant be bothered or when I happen to notice it on my dresser after a shower. Though if I do the latter, I must admit I will still end up using a normal moisturiser aswell later on to make my skin extra soft. I find flirtigo to be a nice way to spritz myself before a night out knowing I have moisturised my skin and of course it helps makes me smell extra nice!
The only issue I have with Flirtigo is that if you spray it too close to your skin you can end up with too much moisturising mist leaving a puddle on your arm and then having to rub it in. When this happens I end up with my skin feeling a little sticky and greasy. Its not really a pleasent feeling and none of the other soap & glory moisturisers do this! However, used at just short of arms length and making sure it does reach your skin as a mist it does work really well.
I think for its purpose it works well and when I am feeling lazy its nice to know I've moisturised with very little effort. However, I dont think its a good substitute for day to day moisturising, its just not quite the same. I personally dont find it does much good on any tough areas such as elbows. Thats why the bottle I bought ages ago isnt even half empty yet - which I guess is a good thing as it makes it very good value for money for me!
Overall, if you're lazy with your moisturising then this product is for you. Even if you get lazy from time to time its handy to just have a little bottle of this lying around as it does moisturise well and it is nice to spritz on your skin before a night out. However, I wont be throwing away my normal moisturiser to make way for flirtigo anytime soon!
For Christmas i recieved this as part of a soap and glory gift set and i have just been to Boots to buy the full sized version. It as on special offer for £3.99 so every better!
I love this product, it's great that its a spray as i hate squeezing moisturiser out of bottles then it gets all crusty round the top! Discusting i know!
This smells great and isnt too thick or greasy. Its in a cute bottle and i love the quirky slogans on the box. This is the first product i have bought from soap and glory and it definetly wont be the last. It reminds me of benefit skincare however at a fraction of the price!
Overall i would say its a lovely smelling fun and pleasurable product to use. Also with all soap and glory 1/3 off at boots just now i would buy it now!
