I absolutely love the Soap & Glory brand and have made it my mission in life to try all their products. So far some have blown me away whereas some I have really struggled to be positive about, however Pulp Friction is definitely one of the products I will be adding to my regular purchases. *What Soap & Glory Say* Get fresher, smoother and softer skin with fig powder, pumice, peppermint oil, lemonade tree liquid, orange waterjuiceTM and vitaminballsTM (A,C,E). Scented with our new FruitigoTM fragrance. *Packaging* One reason that I love this scrub and prefer it to the others in the S&G range is that it comes in a squeezy tube with a flip lid and not a tub! I have an issue with tubs in the shower as I find them difficult to use and before you know it they are filling up with water etc I just find tubes a lot more user friendly when showering. As with all the other S&G products the packaging is pink and very eye catching with their large slogans and quirky phrases on the front and the ingredients and usage instructions on the back. *Soap and Glorys Instructions for Use* Squeeze out a handful and rub it between your palms, then work it around in circles on damp skin. (You can start at your shoulders and work down, or tackle dry shins and feet before scrubbing up.) Rinse when you're finished. *My Experience* I am always worried when using new body scrubs as my skin can be sensitive at times but I have always found the S&G range to suit my skin. When you first squeeze the product in to your hand you are greeted with a pleasant off white thick substance which easily flows out of the tube which is quite different to S&Gs other scrubs which I find to be quite thick. When applied to the skin it has a thick, creamy feel and starts foaming instantly, it doesn't feel any different to using a normal shower gel, you can feel the little pumice particles working through on to your skin. It foams up lovely on your skin and has a very luxurious, gentle feel, some scrubs can feel very harsh on the skin whereas this is very different but still packs as much punch as a full on body scrub. It doesn't feel scratchy on my skin and once I have rinsed it off my skin feels soft, smooth and refreshed with no red patches (which is always a bonus!) I have also noticed that my skin never feels like it is burning after using this, as with some scrubs once I have got out the shower and dried myself my skin can feel like it is on fire! The other thing I love about this product is the scent, it isn't your original S&G scent which I am a big fan of. It has a quite a sweet citrus fresh scent and the only way I can describe it is when opening up the tube it is like walking in to an old style sweet shop, I just feel it has a really sweet mixtured scent. When applied to the skin the scent erupts and you are met with quite a fruit, clean exotic scent. A personal opinion of mine is that I find it great as a self tan prep scrub as previously mentioned it is gentle but really leaves your skin feeling smooth and works wonders on your elbows, ankles and knees etc. I have never come out streaky after using this scrub and it is a lot cheaper than the brands recommended by the tanning companies. I have also found that you don't need t use much of this scrub at all for an all other application so it lasts a very long time which is very appealing! It also has three accompanying products which can be bought separately which include body butter (pump or tub form), foaming shower gel and hand cream. *Price, Where to Buy* The scrub is priced at £8.00 for a 250ml tube and can be purchased from Boots in store or online. I tend to wait for the 3 for 2 offers as it obviously works out better value for money or just ask everyone to buy me it for Christmas :) The price isn't too bad when you take in to consideration how well the product works and how long it lasts. *Ingredients* Aqua (Water), Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate, Butylene Glycol, Hydrated Silica, Pumice, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Acrylates Copolymer, Coco-Glucoside, Ficus Carica (Fig) Fruit Powder, Lauric Acid, Glyceryl Oleate, Sodium Methyl Isethionate, Sodium Chloride, Parfum (Fragrance), Citrus Reticulata (Mandarin) Leaf Oil, Citrus Sinensis (Orange) Peel Extract, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, PEG-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate, Synthetic Wax, Tetrasodium EDTA, Dipropylene Glycol, Sodium Hydroxide, Zinc Laurate, Limonene, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Water, Polyquaternium-7, Propylene Glycol, Lactose, Cellulose, Citric Acid, Methylisothiazolinone, Adansonia Digitata Fruit Extract, Ficus Carica (Fig) Extract, Coumarin, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Potassium Sorbate, Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tocopherol, Triethyl Citrate, Lecithin, Sodium Citrate, Benzyl Alcohol, Hydrogenated Palm Glycerides Citrate, Sorbic Acid, Trisodium EDTA, Dehydroacetic Acid, Sodium Metabisulfite, CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 73360 (Red 30), CI 77491 (Iron Oxides) *Conclusion* My favourite scrub by far in the S&G range and any other range! It is gentle enough for sensitive skin and to be used daily and leaves my skin feeling and looking refreshed and healthy with no unwanted redness or scratches! If you haven't tried this product give it a go as I am sure you won't be disappointed! 5 stars from me!
Soap & Glory Pulp Friction Body Scrub This was in my lovely Soap and Glory gift bag from Christmas. =Packaging= The packaging is that of what we have come to love of Soap and Glory, pink, quirky and fun. =Price and Availability= Although this was in the gift set, it can be purchased separately and is around £8 at Boots, for a 250ml size. =Pulp Fiction= Pulp Fiction is a foamy scrub, and has a fruity feel to the product. The scrub is in a tube, and what I tend to do is squeeze some into my hand, to control the amount that I am using. The scrub is a white base and has little beads contained within it, this at first reminded me of a sherbet dip. =Using= I use mine under the shower, what I tend to do is run the water from the shower then rub the scrub into my legs, arms etc, the mixture foamed up well on my skin, and I could feel the scrub working on my skin. I then rinse off. =Verdict= I like the way that is comes in a tube as you can control more easily how much you are using, I use a scrub once a week to keep my skin soft and I find that this is long lasting, my skin felt soft and refreshed. The product is described as fruity, I will be honest and say that I couldn't identify any fruit smell, just the sweet smell that I associate with Soap and Glory. =Would I recommend= I would highly recommend this scrub as a little does really go a long way, not only giving you smooth skin, but making the product a bit more cost effective.
I received this in the S&G Christmas gift set, but is available separately from Boots for about £8 - Which I don't think is too bad really as you get a lot of product (250ml) which lasts aaaaages as you don't need too much, or to use it too often. The packaging is amazingly pink and girly (I *adore* S&G branding), and is a standard squeezy tube with flip cap. The product itself is cream, and has tiny grains of sand or sugar or something in it. The only other body scrub I've ever used is a well known apricot one which I found the grains too sparse in the scrub to be able to work effectively. But this is just packed full of grains, so its really effective. And the best bit about this is the smell - Its amazing! Sort of fruity, sort of flowery its just lovely and when used in the shower the smell just emanates up and is lovely. And it sticks around for a little while afterwards too! This is described as a foaming scrub, and it really does foam up which makes application a lot easier, as you can cover a larger area with less product. I just use my hands to apply, which does mean I get numb hands due to the grainy rubbing! But this could be avoided with a mitt. The product also rinses off easily, as when I used the other scrub would find grains of sand everywhere once out of the shower! This scrub leaves skin feeling smooth, and slightly moisturised too (which I imagine is from the various vitamins and oils contained in it). It doesn't last long mind you, hence the 4*, as although I'm not an expert in scrubs and have only used a couple so have minimal comparison, I'm not sure if it scrubs deep enough! The effects of this only last a day or two before the dry skin returns, but I wouldn't want to use this more than once a week as I imagine it could irritate the skin if used more often. I have fairly sensitive skin, and using this product occasionally has not had any reaction to it at all which is a thumbs up! I do love this product, and will be buying again when I run out purely because it feels like such a treat to use!
When I was packing up my belongings to move house a few months ago I was shocked to discover how many beauty products I had stocked up over the years and never got round to using - shower gels, body scrubs, body lotions, shampoo and I vowed not to buy anything else until I had worked my way through all of these (I don't have a compulsion to go out and buy loads of these, they were mainly presents from birthdays or Christmas). Anyway having recently finished a shower gel the next product I grabbed randomly from the box was this Soap and Glory body scrub. About the product I'm sure you are all aware of the Soap and Glory brand by now so I wont go into detail on that. This particular product is called Pulp Friction and is described on the packaging as a 'foamy fruity body scrub'. The packaging also states that the product has fig powder, pumice, peppermint oil, lemonade tree liquid, orange waterjuice and vitaminballs (A,C,E) as well as notes of frozen yuzu, orange oil, green fig and pomelo essence. (I have a feeling S&G may give their ingredients made up names to make them sound more exciting) The product comes in a plastic bottle which is the shape of a toothpaste tube with a flat cap on the bottom, which I like because it means the product stands up in the shower. It is decorated in the trademark pink of Soap and Glory products. You flip the cap to open the bottle and then squeeze the product out of the hole. The instructions on the back state that you should squeeze a handful of the scrub into your hand, rub it between your palms and then work it around in circles on damp skin. The first time I used this product I squeezed a small amount into my palm and then had to pick up the bottle and check that this was a body scrub and not a face mask. I was really surprised by the consistency, it was very thick and gloopy and not like any body scrubs I had used before, instead much more like one of my face masks. Finding it was fine I proceeded to rub this into my damp skin. As soon as you begin to rub this in you can feel the exfoliating beads against your skin, which I really like as I feel it is giving me a good clean and hopefully getting rid of any dead skin. Although it doesn't seem like it will at first this product does go quite far and a small amount was enough to cover my whole body. I would have to say though that although this product does cover my skin and feel nice I have not experienced any foaminess which I would expect from a product that claim to be a foamy scrub. The product rinses off very easily under the shower. I found the scent of the scrub to be quite lemony which is nice and refreshing when you are having a shower, although I am glad that the scent doesn't linger once you have had your shower as I would personally find it a bit overbearing to smell like lemons all day. After my shower my skin does feel softer and so I think this product does work quite well although Im not quite sure I would go so far as to describe my skin as velvety smooth as it claims on the packet. Conclusion This product does work efficiently as a body scrub and does leave my skin feeling soft. The scent is fairly pleasant, although I find quite short lived which is good for me but may not be for others. At £8 for a 250ml bottle I personally think this is quite expensive as due to the consistency of the scrub I don't think the bottle will last very long, but then I guess all the S&G products are around this price and those who love this brand will be happy to pay that. Personally I am unlikely to purchase this product again once this one runs out as I believe there are better scrubs out there which work just as effectively, have a nicer, longer lasting scent and are better value for money. Also I like to use a shower gel/scrub which I can put on my wash puff thing (sorry don't know the technical term, but those puffy things you get for the shower - I think they are also known as body polishers and bath lilies depending where you buy them!) as I feel you get a better wash from these and the product generally goes a lot further. Anyway, I did try this once with this product but it was a massive fail as it kind of gets absorbed into the puff and you lose the scrub effect so don't try this at home!
I really love Soap & Glory products and I have purchased a few of their scrubs. On a recent shopping trip, I spotted Pulp Friction which I had never tried so I thought I would give it a go. What does the product do? The product is a body scrub which promises to remove all the dead and dull skin cells from the body and to reveal the healthy new ones underneath. The scrub promises to give you fresher, smoother and soft skin using pumice, peppermint oil, fig powder, orange juice and vitamin balls. It has been fragranced with the Fruitgo fragrance which is a fruity scent made up of frozen yuzu, orange oil, green fig and pemelo. How do you use the product? The product is to be dispensed from the bottle into your hand and then massaged using a circular motion into damp skin. When you have finished, it is to be rinsed away with warm water. Packaging and Price The product comes contained within a plastic bottle which is bright pink in colour. It has some writing about the product on the front and it has a flip top lid on which it could stand so it will look need and presentable on display in the bathroom. It will cost you around £8 for 250ml of the product and it can be bought from department stores such as Boots and also from a range of online websites. Appearance and Aroma The product has a citrus aroma which is really quite strong. It's not the fragrance which I would normally choice but it is really invigorating and awakening which makes this one good for the morning time. The scrub is actually white and creamy in colour which I wasn't expecting but if you look closely at it then you can see the scrubbing particles within it and the pink vitamin balls. Application and Performance The product has a thick consistency like that of a paste. Once I have dampened my skin, I then turn off the shower so that it doesn't rinse the product off before it has done its job. It is very white so you can see exactly where you use it and although it doesn't foam as such, it is still easy to massage the product over the skin. The product glides over the skin easily and you can feel the massaging particles. You can control the hardness of the particles by varying the pressure that you use as you massage the product into the skin so it can be as hard or gentle as you like. You can't feel the pink balls at all. It didn't irritate my skin or cause it any discomfort. The aroma of the product is evident throughout the whole process and it is very refreshing. The product is easy to rinse off and it leaves the skin feeling a bit smoother and a bit softer. It does help to remove the dead and dull skin and leaves my skin looking a bit brighter and in a slightly better condition. It doesn't really tackle the tricky dry spots like my knees and elbows but it works well on the rest of my skin. The aroma lingers on the skin after use and it smells nice on the skin. My skin doesn't feel particularly hydrated after use so I do feel the need to moisturise afterwards. If you do find that you like the aroma then you can buy a matching moisturiser by Soap & Glory with the same fragrance. Conclusion All in all, this is a nice scrub which does leave the skin feeling softer and smoother. It doesn't work miracles but it does improve the appearance of the skin and it leaves it smelling fresh and clean. I will happily continue to use this product until it is all gone.
One thing I really wanted for Christmas was some Soap & Glory bath, shower and body products. I am a huge fan of most of the products from the range though keeping to a budget at the moment they have not been something I have gone out and treated myself to in some time. Lucky for me Mum bought me loads of them and mostly they are products I have used and reviewed on here already but a new one to me was this Pulp Friction Body Scrub and I couldn't wait to try it out in my mums shower Christmas Day! The Packaging: This comes in a dark pink tube with a flip top opening to one end of it concealing a small hole and it is a squeezy tube. On the front of it we are told what it is and who it is by clearly and that it contains 'Fig powder, pumice, peppermint oil, lemonade tree liquid, orange waterjuice & vitamin balls (A,C,E)' and that it is the Fruitgo Fragrance with notes of frozen yuzo, orange oil, green fig and jungle pomelo essence and that the tube is 250ml in size which is really a large tube of product. On the back of the tube other information listed includes being told a tiny bit about how to use the product, warnings are given, the ingredients are listed and contact details for the manufacturer are also given. This is girly looking packaging in my opinion but not as retro looking as alot of other Soap & Glory products I have used in my time. Using It: The instructions on using it are really rather simple. We are told to rub it between our palms a bit and then to work it onto damp skin in a circular motion. This is a rather runny white coloured scrub with little pink flecks within it. To me this has a very natural fragrance of mint to it in the main and I cant really detect any of the other ingredients it is meant to have in it apart from the fact it has a softness and slightly sweet fragrance to it. Its pleasant enough but rather unisex in its scent in my opinion. A little of this really does go a very long way indeed because as soon as it is squeezed out into my hand it starts to foam up slightly then when in contact with my damp/wet skin it really does foam up really, really well and this I was impressed with! I use this after I have washed though I don't know if you are meant to use this as a shower gel kind of product or what to be honest. I dispense a small amount and gently circle my skin with and although I can feel a little pumice in it it doesn't scratch my skin at all or make it tingle or anything really. I thought though that I would love this product and sadly I don't. I am not all that keen on the basic looking packaging from the start and it wasn't what I was expecting and I'm not keen on the scent and then when I smelt its minty aroma I thought it would further cleanse my skin and make it tingle or something but no. My skin doesn't feel buffed up after using it or fresher and all I can say is that my skin feels smooth after using it and the scent lingers a couple of hours after using it but I could never justify paying £8.00 for a tube of this as it simple isn't that great. I don't hate it. I just don't see it offers me anything new really and for me I can only say that if you like it or want to try it least it works out ok value for money because at least a little of it does go a very long way indeed but it isn't one I be purchasing for myself in the future I'm sure! Available from Boots stores. This review is also posted on Ciao under this same username.
As I've said in other reviews, I LOVE soap and glory. No really. I LOVE THEM! I can never afford their products to use as essential hygiene products but if I could, I would! I received the shower gift set for Christmas which included BUTTER YOURSELF, PULP FRICTION, FOAM CALL, a hair towel and shower puff. So on Boxing Day after all the festive partying went on I felt like I really deserved a pampering day so I went for a shower with my new goodies! The packaging of Pulp Friction is very attractive and looks great on my shower rack. It's a very 'in your face' pink that really grabs your attention with the classic Soap and Glory vintage style writing. The bottle also has a flip top lid which allows the product out with ease and without any mess which I liked, the convenience really cuts the job of exfoliating in half without having to balance tubs and lids whilst in the shower which is something I've found problematic with other exfoliating products before! The product smells absolutely delicious and has a good, thick consistently which feels great being worked all over my skin. After running on my skin in circular motions the exfoliant begins to wear off and transforms into a foam which cleans and scents the skin while feeling super soft at the same time. The product washes off easily too. After my shower my skin felt silky and really, really soft. Often some exfoliants can leave my skin feeling sore and dry but I think the foaming action of the product really takes the edge off of the exfoliating on my skin and nourishes it at the same time. I would recommend this product if it weren't for the price. I received this gift knowing that the gift set itself was £20, but ordinarily the Pulp Friction exfoliator is £8 from Boots which is quite a lot of money if you're like me and spend a lot of money on bills and can't afford luxuries like this!
My mum had no idea what to get me for my birthday in April so I told her to get me some toiletry type products as I love them! I have so many already that I haven't even started but I can't resist receiving more. She ended up making me a lovely hamper full of goodies, one thing inside this hamper was this Soap and Glory Pulp Friction body scrub. It is easy to tell that this body scrub is from the Soap and Glory range with it coming in pink coloured, retro packaging and having a weird name! All the information you may possibly need is presented on the tube. I'm not too keen on the scent, when you first open the tube you are met with a fruity type aroma which then turns into a citrus type smell as you apply the scrub to your body, whilst I normally like fruity fragrances, this is too much of a citrus fragrance for my liking especially as it does linger on your body for some time, even after using body butters after. I tend to use body scrubs the most around my ankles as knee's as that is where I normally suffer from rubbish skin, I do this daily, and then every other day use it on the rest of my body also. The consistency of the scrub is almost the same as most other types of scrubs, I would say it's only slightly more runny than others. That being said, it is still quite a thick consistency. There are a good amount of small beads in the scrub, these beads don't feel tough when rubbing the scrub in my body, it's almost as if there aren't any beads in there as they are so gentle but they still work on problem areas as well as scrubs with harsh beads. Whilst rubbing the scrub into your body, you will find that it lathers up quite quickly but it's quick to wash off in the shower. After showering, the scrub leaves my body feeling and looking better, particularly around my knees and ankles, giving them a fresh lease of life. It also leaves the horrible citrus aroma lingering, even after using other scented body butters so it isn't that great! At around £8 for a 250ml tube of this Pulp Friction Soap and Glory body scrub, it's not one I will be purchasing as the citrus scent definitely isn't my favourite body scrub scent. However, for those who like this type of scent it would be a good scrub. It is effective even though it feels so gentle when using it.
Yes the Soap and Glory bug has really taken hold ever since I received a huge bumper pack as a gift at Christmas. I have to say S & G never really appealed to me at first but when I tried a few of their products I certainly changed my mind! Soap and Glory - Pulp Friction Foamy Fruity Body Scrub: 'Get fresher, smoother and softer skin with fig powder, pumice, peppermint oil, lemonade tree liquid, orange waterjuice and vitaminballs (A,C,E). Scented with our new Fruitigo fragrance.' My Findings: I really love body scrubs and always use them a few times a week, I personally found this one to be just ok as far as a scrub goes. I guess after using the other Soap and Glory products and liking them a lot I was somewhat left feeling a little let down by this one. A lot of people have used products from S & G and will know what lovely fragrances come from their items. However in my opinion I found this to have a sight masculine aroma to it which put me off from the start as I love fresh and fruity fragrances. Reading its description I was looking forward to trying as it states 'foamy and fruity' but I did really struggle to smell any fruitiness at all. Following the instructions to rub this in circles on damp skin, straight away the initial scent reminded me of a males body wash. For me it was the peppermint that stood out more so, the body scrub has a thick consistency with lots of exfoliating beads within the mix. When rubbing this over my skin it is not as harsh as other scrubs I have tried in the past I actually found it rather mild on my skin. It does create a nice soft foam which I found to feel lovely over my skin. Once washed off and dried my skin was nice and soft to touch and did feel nice. But for me it wasn't any wonder scrub at all and I have used much better ones in the past. The packing is without doubt in true S & G style bright over loaded with information and pink! I do think it hypes up the product more than it needs. As it is plastic, once empty it can be recycled, it has a nice and easy flip open lid so you only need to squeeze to obtain the product. Price and Availability: 250ml tube is around the £8.00 mark and can be seen on the three for two offers at Boots. Overall: For me I was expecting more from this product, sure it was nice on my skin but I have used much better scrubs in the past. The scent was really the major let down for me but I now others whom like a more masculine scent so I would recommend it to them. The other thing that I looked at was the ingredient list and just how many items went into this product. Just seem to me to be overloaded with ingredients. Three out of five stars from me. Thank you for reading.

Soap & Glory is a beauty company offering a large range of beauty products/cosmetics - founded by the owner of Bliss. S&G do not test their products on animals, which is delightful to hear! They also offer an extensive range of high quality products at a reasonable price. 'Pulp Friction' is a gentle yet VERY effective body scrub - presented in a tall bright pink tube (which is very handy for use in the shower) displaying quirky and witty phrases. It can be purchased for around £8 in many Boots stores, the Boots website (www.boots.com) or direct from www.soapandglory.com. The product is labelled as a 'foamy fruity body scrub' and I can tell you, it is exactly that! The scent somewhat differs from the signature scent of Soap & Glory products, it's more fruity and intriguing. The fragrance is known as 'Frutigo' and consists of a blend of jungle pomelo essence, frozen yuzu, green fig and orange oil. You can also grab yourself the full range of products in the 'Frutigo' scented range, which all complement this body scrub - leaving you smelling delicious! Like many others, I have very sensitive skin. I was thrilled when I used this product as it didn't irritate my skin or feel 'scratchy' and harsh; unlike most body scrubs. With this scrub, a small blob goes far! The scrub has a creamy consistency and feels more like a thick shower gel, which is very different to the usual 'thick paste' feeling of many scrubs. The scrub gently foams up on the skin as you start to rub. The pumice gently scrubs away all of your dead skin whilst giving you a slight 'massaging' sensation. Unlike other body scrubs containing pumice, the pumice particles aren't hard to get off of your skin - they easily slide off along with the foam. I would definitely recommend this product as it smells delicious and leaves you also smelling delicious. It's not harsh on the skin so is suitable for use on all skin types. A small blob is all you need, so the tube lasts for a long long time. And most importantly, this product leaves you with a 'satin' feel to your skin and is most definitely worth the money.
This product is amazing, I can't say I would have purposely gone out and bought this, however it was in a set and so thought I would use it; and boy I'm glad I did. It's a body scrub, however it feels less harsh than Soap & Glorys other scrubs. The reason behind this is the fact it's a foamy fruit scrub, containing fig pwder, pumice, peppermint oil, lemonaid tree liquid, orange waterfjuice & vitaminballs. It comes in a 250ml upside down standing tube, which is great to make sure you can get the most out of your product. When you squeeze the product out it's a very thick white product and you can see and feel the scrub beads inside. As soon as you rub the product in your hands you get a lovely scent and foamy cream lather up. If your add a touch of water also it makes the product spread really well too. As soon as I started to use this product I began to love it. It's so much more smoother on the skin and you can use it as a scrub or just use it as a normal body wash, either way it makes you smell lovely. I don't often repurchased products as I often like to try new ones, but this is deffinitely one on my list to re purchase. Available in Boots for the price of £8, which is quite pricey, however it has lasted me a while. It's better for Soap & Glory products though to wait for a 3 for 2 offer, as all their range is around this price bracket and it just helps keeps the funds down. Also look out for christmas sets that have gone half price on boxing day, thers normally always everyones favourites products stuffed in some form of gift bag, which when you work it out is cheaper to buy the individually products (but hang fire till boxing day sales)
Soap and Glory is a beauty company founded by the owner of Bliss (another beauty company). They offer a huge range of cosmetic, skin care, bath and body treats and also perfume. They do not test on animals and offer quirky titled products in stylish packaging. *~Pulp Friction~* Soap and Glory currently have 8body scrubs on the market. Pulp Friction is the newest scrub to be released and has been added to the collection alongside the popular Flake Away and The Breakfast Scrub. This body scrub is a 'foamy fruity body scrub' and is designed to scrub and exfoliate rough areas of skin on the body. The main ingredients are peppermint oil, pumice, fig powder, orange waterjuice, lemonade tree liquid and various 'vitaminballs'. Whilst many of the S&G range has the 'Original Pink' fragrance, Pulp Friction has a new fragrance known as 'Frutigo'. Expect a blend of jungle pomelo essence, frozen yuzu, green fig and orange oil. There is a complimenting body butter and shower gel in this fragrance should you wish to layer the overall scent. *~Design~* Some of the S&G scrubs are presented in round tubs though I prefer a tube to use in the shower. Pulp Friction is presented in a tall, bright pink tube with the flip cap at the base. The packaging is littered with essential product information and witty remarks which makes it a little different from the norm. There is a huge ingredients list present for anyone who suffers from allergies to check. Once the tube is empty, it can be recycled. It is worth noting that this scrub has a 24 month shelf life. *~Price and Availability~* Pulp Friction is stocked in larger Boots stores, www.boots.com and can also be purchased direct from www.soapandglory.com. It is priced at £8.00 which gives you 250ml of scrub. It may be worth waiting for the regular '3 for 2' or '1/3 off' offers that Boots run. *~My Thoughts~* I am a massive fan of Soap and Glory products and have tried nearly all off them. I have a soft spot for Flake Away and The Breakfast Scrub as they perform well and smell absolutely lush! I was keen to try the newest scrub so was pleased that it was included as part of the huge Soap and Glory gift set they release at Christmas. My son and partner bought me this set as part of my presents! I use a body scrub a few times a week. I feel that most scrubs are too harsh for daily use. An exfoliating scrub is perfect for buffing the skin before applying self tan but I use it to simply relieve my skin of rough areas before applying a layer of body butter. S&G have got it spot on with their scrubs as they are effective, last well and in most cases, smell good too which makes the scrubbing experience less daunting! *~Foamy Friction!~* Many of the scrubs on the market (including the other S&G scrubs) have a wet, paste like texture. Pulp Friction is different. Once my skin is damp, I squeeze a small blob of this scrub onto my hand. It flows well from the tube and is an off white colour. The scrub has a creamy consistency as is quite thick and cool when applied. As I spread the blob across my skin, it feels like I am applying a thick shower cream. The scrub foams up gently on my skin and the little pumice particles sink through the foam and settle on my skin. The foam is soft and bubbly though I can still feel the pumice particles as I rub them around my skin. My skin is very sensitive but I found this scrub to be fairly gentle. The pumice particles 'tickled' my skin and didn't feel abrasive or scratchy like some scrubs do. I mainly use body scrubs on my arms and legs and concentrate on the knee and elbow areas the most. The foam rinses effortlessly from my skin and any left over pumice particles are washed away without hassle. I feel that the foam really does help protect the skin whilst scrubbing - almost like a shaving foam protects the skin from a razor. My skin didn't feel as sore or red as it has done with other scrubs and this was definitely a bonus for me and my sensitive skin. My skin is left refreshed and gently cleansed too. The main appeal of this scrub, in my opinion, is the scent. I am a big fan of the signature S&G scent but it is always refreshing to sample something a bit different. The scent of Pulp Friction is very natural and highly addictive - I often find myself opening the tube for a sniff when I am not even going to be using it! The initial scent is a creamy, fruity scent with citrussy undertones. Once applied to my damp skin, it transforms to an exotic, Summery scent. I can help but notice a creamy coconut aroma despite coconut not being listed as a scent ingredient. *~Friction or Fail?~* All in all, I have been impressed by the results that Pulp Friction offers my skin. Not only is it gentle, it is very effective. I noticed a significant improvement in the appearance of my skin and it felt completely smooth and silky to the touch. Dry areas are buffed away and my skin is left looking healthy and feeling revived. I still like to apply some body butter after scrubbing up but it really isn't neccesary except for to lock in moisture. The gorgeous exotic aroma lingers for an hour or so but can be enhanced with the matching body butter. I hope they release a Fruitigo body mist! *~Conclusion~* I only ever require 2-3 small blobs of this body scrub to cover my body so my tube is lasting well given that I use it up to 3 times a week. £8.00 is definitely a fab price for this as it works really well. I would buy it for the smell alone and find it perfect for Summer time use. When comparing Pulp Friction to the other scrubs from Soap and Glory, I would say I like this one for the packaging, smell and how gentle yet effective it is. I will buy it again for using during warmer months as I prefer the deep scent of the other two leading scrubs I mentioned for cold weather use and coping with heavy dryness from the cold weather. Overall 5 stars! Thanks for reading :)
Soap and glory's "pulp-friction" was included in a rather large s&g gift set I received at Christmas time and not long a go I finally got around to trying it out. The packaging design is pretty obvious for soap and glory, bright pink and retro styled with wacky and quirky names to help you remember them over other brands and this body scrub does just that, especially if you love the film pulp fiction. You can pick this product up at your local boots or various websites that stock s and g products such as ASOS. This is around £8 for 250ml but places and websites do vary. If you buy from boots they always have 3 for 2 on soap and glory products. Pulp friction has been described as a foamy fruity scrub that will give you ultra smooth skin and then it challenges other body scrubs to 'beat that'. When squeezing a grape sized amount of this into my palm the scrub is very thick and white with little rubbing beads in it which you can rub lightly or harder depending what your skin needs. The ratio between the cream and beads is really good there is a lot more beads in this than expected which I love because that way you know it's going to do the job. As for the smell for me I never smelt anything except the usual signature scent from soap and glory, which I didn't mind because it's lovely, however when it say's it will be fruity and it isn't I was a little disappointed because fruit is my favourite smell. I first used this in the bath on my feet and legs, the grape sized amount in my palm didn't look like it would do the job fully and I would have to keep reapplying. When first applying this I did it to damp skin and when the creamy mixed with the moisture on my legs it started to foam up like it said it would and I would spread this over my full leg and foot easily. I rubbed this around in a small circular motion every now and then dipping my hand in the water to create more foam so it would spread better. I continued to do my full body even though I was in the bath but these days I usually do this before I get in the bath or the shower and then rinse off when I get in there. I still use body wash after using this to have a big thorough clean even though this will do the job I like to do both and then continue to moisturise for a bigger impact. Since using this even if my legs hairs (ew) have started growing back my skin really is super soft and today I even went out without tights on which I never do because I was proud of my silky soft legs. I noticed the changes from day one of using this as it takes effect straight away, you can use this where ever you want and be as vigorous with it as you want such as rubbing harder in dryer areas like elbows and knees. I couldn't detect much of an aroma from this but I don't mind because I always use body wash afterwards anyway so it's fine. I will continue to buy this after mind is finished but because you only need a tiny amount because it goes far, this one bottle will last me a few months.
I received this product as part of the Big Splendour gift set. I was pleased to see that it contained an exfoliator- I have dry skin with flaky patches that can be stubborn to remove! I believe it retails at around £10 yet can often be bought as part of offers in Boots. I also believe this price to be reasonable for a high quality scrub and think you will pay the same price most places. The packaging, like other soap and glory products, is very girly and looks great on your dressing table or bathroom shelf, especially if like me you own a lot of the products. The scrub has the trademark smell but is possibly a little more fruity. The product is essentially an exfoliator, although it comes in a squeezy bottle rather than the traditional tub. I actually prefer this as it means in the shower water doesnt get in the bottle and dilute it, as can happen with tubs of product. The texture of the product is very thick and yet absolutely full of exfoliating beads/scrub. I often find that exfoliators in bottles are more like body washes and contain few beads but this product is the opposite. It lathers with the water in the shower and is most effective if massaged in out of the stream of water and then rinsed off. I have dry skin on my bum and thighs and this scrub is amazing at making these areas feel soft and smooth. I also think it has improved the appearance of my cellulite- a wonder product!
I've been lusting after Soap & Glory's 'Pulp Fiction' for while and finally got some as part of my Christmas pressie. What attracted me to the product was the cute packaging, generous size and Soap & Glory's generally good reputation. The product delivered on it's promise which was no mean feat as I had quite a lot of dry skin for it to do battle with! The main problem I usually find with body scrubs are that the effective ones are usually gritty and harsh to use, and the more mild moisturising ones are not effective. Pulp Fiction appears to give the best of both. The product is in a gorgeous and fruity/ floral smelling cream but with tons of small scubby particles built in. This meant it was both pleasent to use and super-effective. I was able to use this on lots of different areas of the skin and it provided a really good clean as well as scrub. It even worked on my feet which are terrible for building up hard skin and weren't the most fragrant on first attack! As I've been using the product over time it has lasted superbly and continued to be effective. I was also very pleased to see it didn't irritate my skin after using it a while as some scrubbing products can do. It has also lasted for ages, I am just coming to the end of my Christmas supply now and will definitely be searching up some more. Overall I would definitely recommend this product as a great all-rounder.
