==A Foam Call, for me?==
I always like to pick a brand of toiletries that my children and family can by me as a treat at Birthdays, Christmas etc. I don't pick anything too expensive but I do pick something I would consider to be out my price bracket for everyday purposes. My recent favourite has been Soap & Glory shower and bath products that are usually sold in boots.
For my last birthday my Son and Daughter brought me three of the Soap & Glory shower products. The one I am reviewing is Foam Call Dual-use Shower & Bath Body Wash.
==Dialling up the details==
The 500ml bottle of Foam Call comes with a handy pump dispenser. I find this great for in the shower as it is quicker and easier to give the bottle a couple of pumps onto a shower flower than it would be to fiddle around with wet hands flipping up or unscrewing lids on such a large sized bottle.
I find three pumps are enough for a quick shower or twice that amount if I am feeling the need of a foamier shower experience. The Body Wash is white in colour which for me was a bit of a disappointment; I was expecting a vivid flamingo pink to go with the colour of the plastic bottle.
The girly and slightly retro label tells me that the Body Wash contains peppermint essential oils, grapeseed EFA's, fruit liquid fig and orange water juice. The fragrance of the Body Wash is frozen yuzu, orange oil, green fig and jungle pomelo essence. In all honesty I have not got a clue what these fruits and oils should smell like all I can say is that the Body Wash smells creamy and fruity. It is a mild fragrance reminiscent of orange blossom.
==Foam me back please==
The Body Wash leaves me feeling fresh and clean and my skin feels exceptionally soft and nourished. I have been using this Body Wash on and off for the last six months and I am now down to the last 20% so despite the rather high price tag of £6.50 it does work out quite good value.
All things considered I do recommend giving this Body Wash a try. It does not have the Soap & Glory signature scent but it is nice enough despite not being very strong or long lasting.
Thank you for reading.
I LOVE Soap & Glory (it's one of my few extravagancies these days), falling in love particularly with their 'Clean on Me' shower gel. However when I was shopping for some more in the Boots 3 for 2 offer, I decided to get a couple of different things, and one of them was this 'Foam Call' dual-use shower and bath body wash. I only ever use this in the shower.
The packaging is fairly standard Soap & Glory, being mainly pink (my FAVOURITE!) I have the 500ml bottle which has a pump action to release the gel, which works very well. I find that the bottles of Soap & Glory products generally last quite well. Also as well since it's so girly my boyfriend isn't likely to be using it!
I love the packaging, Soap & Glory products really brighten up my bathroom. This one has a picture of a woman on the phone in her bathroom - random! I love all the little comments on the bottles, like on this one "Everyone uses soap (at least everyone we like to spend time with)". There is a great long list of ingredients - I suggest you check before buying if you have any sensitivities.
---Using Foam Call---
I usually squirt three times onto my shower puff thingy-do. The smell is lovely - the packaging says that it contains peppermint essential oils, grapeseed EFAs, fruitified fig and orange waterjuice. It is said to have notes of frozen yuzu (what?!), orange oil, green fig, and jungle pomelo essence. I can definitely smell the peppermint in there, but it's not overpowering. Although these smell notes sound made up to me, generally I think that the fragrance is just very nice, fresh and slightly fruity.
The actual liquid is bright pink, slightly darker than some of the other Soap & Glory shower gels. Apparently this is 'formulated with M-SUDS moisture system molecules and grapeseed EFAs to reduce the drying effects of your daily soap-up.' It does leave my skin feeling clean and soft anyway.
The first time I used this I was amazed by just how much it did foam up - it definitely lives up to its name. Although it's quite novel at first, for me this wore off, and I have to say that I prefer the normal Soap & Glory Shower gels. Also, this can leave quite a lot of scum at the bottom of the bath (my shower is in the bath), and this can actually become pretty slippery and dangerous, which isn't something I've found with other shower gels.
Although I like the smell of 'Foam Call', and it cleans me, I doubt I'll be purchasing it again. The rrp is £6.50 (although I always make sure I buy these in 3 for 2 offers in Boots), and 'Clean on Me' which I absolutely love and is my all-time favourite shower gel, is 50p less! I also love the 'Clean, Girls' shower gel. For more information about Soap & Glory and their products visit www.soapandglory.com or the Boots website.
4 out of 5 stars from me, because it is nice....but I prefer 'Clean on Me'.
I love Soap and Glory products because they are girlie, excellent value for money and work really well. I was lucky enough to get a massive Soap and Glory goodie bag for Christmas, and included in that bag was Foam Call Body Wash. I could not wait to use this body wash and I had very high hopes!
**** What is it? ****
This is a body wash from the Soap and Glory Cosmetics Company. The body wash comes in a 500ml, tall, pink, plastic bottle, with a push down dispenser. To apply, you simply push down on the applicator and apply the body wash to damp skin until it bubbles up.
On the front of the bottle is a label containing:
- The products name (Foam Call)
- What it is (Dual-use shower & bath body wash)
- Ingredients (please see www.soapandglory.com for full details)
- Fragrance (Fruitigo fragrance with notes of frozen yuzu, orange oil, green fig and jungle pomelo essence)
- A retro, black and white picture of a woman on the phone
- And a witty comment, which are on all Soap and Glory products (Everyone uses soap - At least everyone we like to spend time with)
**** Price and Availability ****
You can purchase this body wash from Boots for £6.50, and is currently on a 3 for 2 offer, or from the Soap and Glory website: www.soapandglory.com.
**** My Thoughts ****
The first thing that draws you to this product is the girlie, retro packaging. It looks sophisticated, and I am quite happy to let it sit next to my bath ( unlike some other cheap body washes that are hiding in the cupboard in shame). I have been using the same bottle since Christmas and there is still over a quarter left. It really goes a long way, which is excellent value for money. I like the push down dispenser as you only dispense the amount you need, unlike some other body washes where you have to squeeze it out, and loads come rushing out at once.
The colour of the body wash is white, and the consisteny is thick and creamy. I usually dispense 3 or 4 squirts of this body wash, to get a good lather on. It glides on the skin smoothly and lathers up easily with a little scrub. Once it is washed off my skin feels immediately smoother and hydrated. My legs can get quite dry, but if I am using this body wash I don't always feel the need to use a body moisturiser. This may be due to the 'Super Moisture-Suds'. I suffer from Psoriasis and this has never irritated my skin
Like all Soap and Glory products, this body wash smells delicious. The scents smell juicy and fruity. This may be due to the orange oil, green fig and jungle pomelo essence. I have never seen some of these extracts in any other products before, but I will definitely be looking out for them now, as they are devine. Some Soap and Glory products have some very sweet, and sometime, overpowering smells, which can be quite sickly. This body washes scents are very subtle, so if you are not a big fan of 'sweetie' smells, this is perfect for you. The scents linger on your skin all day, and I have had compliments from my other half on how good I smell.
****Would I Recommend? ****
Yes! I would definitely recommend this body wash, it is incredibly girlie, smells great and lasts for a long time. This is another wonderful product from Soap and Glory, which is affordable and does exactly what it says it does. 5 out of 5 stars. You won't regret making this FOAM CALL!
Thanks for taking the time to read my review :)
As a massive Soap and Glory fan, nothing delights me more than waking up on Christmas morning to a Soap and Glory gift set under the tree! This year I received Showers That Glee! That included:
250ml Pulp Friction Body Scrub
300ml Butter Yourself Smoothing Body Cream
500ml Foam Call Shower and Bath Body Wash
Sudsy Shower Puff
"These super moisture-suds contain peppermint essential oils, grapeseed EFAS, fruitliquid fig and orange waterjuiceTM. Scented with our new FruitigoTM fragrance."
The 500ml Foam Call Shower and Bath Body Wash looks amazing, with the trademark Soap and Glory hot pink bottle and a vintage style photograph and font. The bottle looks fantastic in my shower with all my girlie products but surprisingly (especially being a 500ml bottle) doesn't take up all the room. Although I received this product as a gift the RRP is £6.50 for 500ml which I feel is very pricey for a shower gel, but as I am a massive fan of Soap and Glory I know that their products are of good quality and will purchase their items when I can afford them.
When using the product, it foams up very well and feels incredibly creamy and luxurious. The bottle is sturdy and has a flip cap ensuring easy use. The smell of the product is to die for, I love this scent and it definitely lingers on the skin leaving me feeling clean and pampered after every shower. Afterwards my skin is soft and smooth, it's definitely a luxurious product that does exactly what it says on the tin and more. Another plus is that the 500ml bottle lasts for ages, it only takes a small amount on the shower puff to lather up and covers my entire body twice over and provide the maximum result. Even my boyfriend loves it and as it sits in my shower for my family to use it has actually amazed me that this bottle has lasted this long!
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who loves being pampered and would just like to have a good quality product introduced into their routine shower. The price is a little off putting, but a little goes a long way and the quality of the product is outstanding.
***Soap and Glory Foam Call Shower and Bath Body Wash***
I am fan of Soap and Glory product so was very pleased to receive a gift set containing Foam Call Body was and Body Butter which I will review separately. The gift set also contained a shower sponge which I now use with a Foam Call Body wash. The gift set came in retro looking cardboard box pink in colour which I found very useful and now use for my daughter's hair clips, brushes and other accessories.
Foam Call body wash came in 500ml round bottle with flip top lid. Bottle is baby pink in colour and has very recognisable Soap and Glory label on it. I like the retro yet girly look of Soap and Glory products I think they really stand out. Body wash itself has nice creamy consistency and is white in colour.
This was a first time I used Soap and Glory body wash and to be quite honest I was not overly impressed by the smell to start with but I also didn't hate it. It definitely smells fruity and upon looking at the label I am informed that it has notes of orange oil, green fig, frozen yuzu and pomelo essence. By quickly searching Google I had learned that both yuzu and pomelo are actually type of citrus fruit originating from different part of Asia. I normally like to use 2 or 3 different shower gels but since I had been given this one, I have been solely using it. The more I used it more I like the smell and now I actually really love it.
***Use of the product***
The first time I used the product I put a generous blob on the shower sponge which was part of my gift set. I was quite overwhelmed by the very generous amount of the lather the body wash produces. It was quite obvious I have used to much product also since then I have actually read the label advising that I could also rub the product onto damp skin, massage until it bubbles up and rinse. I have tried this technique but prefer to use it with my shower sponge.
Body wash lathers very easily and fruity smell quickly fills the bathroom. It doesn't dry my skin out and leaves it feeling rather soft. Definite bonus for me is that the smell lingers on my skin afterwards.
***Price and availability***
Available from Boots or Boots on-line at the price of £6.50 if brought separately. Soap and Glory products can be brought quite frequently on offer which makes them better value for money.
***My verdict is***
I like this product due to reasons described above. I would recommend this product but probably wouldn't buy it for myself simply because it is a bit pricey in my opinion for a body wash and I personally think that it is no more special than other body washes I have tried in the past and can buy from supermarket for a pound or two. I would be happy to receive it as a gift though in future as I think it makes a nice present.
Awarding 4/5 stars for a high price tag.
Thank you for reading :)
Foam Call is one of many shower/bath products offered by Soap and Glory. S&G market this product as being a 'dual-use' shower and bath body wash. This body wash is formulated with a 'M-SUDS moisturise system', peppermint essential oils, fruitliquid fig, grapeseed and orange waterjuice.
Most S&G products fall into different scent families. Foam Call is part of the Fruitigo family which has notes of jungle pomelo essence, frozen yuzu, orange oil and green fig. This body wash hasn't been tested on animals.
Foam Call is presented in a tall, pink plastic bottle which features a pump dispenser. Inkeeping with the retro design of the other S&G products, the bottle features a black and white picture of a lady on the phone in the shower and some quirky sayings. The bottle can be recycled and has a 24month shelf life.
~Price and Availability~
Foam Call is available in a 500ml sized bottle from www.soapandglory.com and Boots. Expect to pay around £6.50 from Boots. The Fruitigo range includes body butter and body scrub as well as the body wash.
I am a big fan of Soap and Glory products. Recently whilst doing my Christmas shopping in Boots, I noticed that S&G was on a 3 for 2 offer (something which is quite common) and couldn't resist treating myself to a few bits. I love the shower gels and normally opt for Clean On Me. On this occasion, I swayed and picked up a bottle of Foam Call and Sugar Crush.
I have previously sampled the Fruitigo scent in the form of the Pulp Friction body scrub and really liked it - it is different from the more popular S&G scents but lovely all the same. I have used the body scrub and the body wash together which enhances the scent and effects. This body wash is also brilliant for using as a stand alone product. The bottle is girly and stylish. I really like the pump dispenser as it makes dispensing this product so much easier in the shower. The pump has never failed me yet and releases a decent amount of body wash with one pump.
I shower twice daily and find this body wash to fit in with my morning routine perfectly. I tend to use something less invigorating for my evening shower before bed. This body wash is of a thin but substantial, creamy consistency - a bit like a thin body lotion. It doesn't look as thick and luxurious as other S&G body washes but a little amount goes a long way. I find I get the most from this body wash by pumping one or two blobs out onto my netted body polisher (also S&G). This amount creates more than enough to cleanse my full body.
This body wash lathers up beautifully and forms a creamy and soft yet surprisingly lightweight layer of bubbles. The lather feels gentle on my dry, sensitive skin and I have experienced no form of irritation from using this product. The lather rinses easily from my skin and I am immediately impressed by how soft and clean my skin feels. The scent of this body wash is identical to that of the body scrub - exotically sweet and feminine with light citrus undertones. It won't be to everyones tastes but I like it. I prefer the original scent from S&G though.
Once dried off, my skin feels incredibly smooth and smells absolutely gorgeous. The scent lingers for a short while (longer if the matching body scrub/butter is used too). My skin feels very clean indeed and also nicely moisturised. Some body washes have a habit of drying my skin out but this one actually seems to lock in moisture. I don't feel the need to apply a body butter or lotion but do so on most occasions anyway to ensure my skin remains soft and smooth for the whole day.
This body wash is pleasant to use and offers an uplifting, refreshing sort of scent which is perfect to wake me up in the mornings. A little goes a long way allowing a 500ml bottle to last incredibly well. £6.50 is expensive for a body wash but the quality is high in this case and this is a real treat for my skin so I can highly recommend it. I do prefer Clean On Me but find Foam Call to be a nice alternative.
Thanks for reading :)
Just after Jayden was born my friends clubbed together and purchased a few presents for me, Jayden and my Husband, one item them bought was a hamper made up of all bath products for both me and Jayden. One item which was in this hamper was a large bottle of Soap and Glory Foam Call Body Wash, I received several Soap and Glory products for Christmas and was very pleased with them so was happy when I received some more, this was one item in the range that I hadn't tried so I was hoping it was going to be as good as the other products.
The Soap and Glory Foam Call Body Wash comes in a large pink plastic bottle, it has a clear plastic pump on the top of it and a label wrapped around the middle of the whole bottle. The front of the label is made up of a cream top with the words Foam Call written in large letters in pink and silver, there is a pink section half way down with Body Wash written across it in black along with other facts about the product and the bottom half of the label is made up of a picture of a woman on the telephone and a speech bubble containing what is in the body wash. The two sides of the bottle contain various pieces of product information including information about what the product does, warnings, directions for use and the ingredients, this is all clearly written in the same pink, cream and silver colours as the front of the label.
The Body Wash
The Soap and Glory Foam Call Body Was is white in colour and has quite a thick consistency compared to other body washes I have used in the past. This body wash is described as being suitable for use in both the shower and the bath, I always think that Soap and Glory products have quite a distinctive fragrance to them, however this smells a little different, it is said to contain notes of Frozen Yuzu, Orange Oil, Green Fig and Jungle Pomelo Essence, when I first read this I had only heard of orange oil and green fig and to be honest have no idea what green fig smells like, I can definitely detect fragrance of orange oil in this product but am not too sure about the others, I would describe the fragrance of the Foam Call Body Wash as being fruity with a slight hint of floral, it also has quite a sweet smell to it which I think comes from the orange oil. Other ingredients are Peppermint Essential Oils, Grapeseed EFA's, Fruitliquid Fig and Orange Waterjuice, this product is formulated with M-Suds moisture system molecules along with the Grapeseed EFA's, these help to reduce the drying effects that some products can have on your skin.
Directions for Use
The directions for this product are quite self explanatory and I always wonder whether they are needed on shower gels and body washes, however they state that you rub a handful of the Soap and Glory Foam Call Body wash into your skin until it bubbles and then rinse. Personally I prefer to put a few pumps of the body wash onto my sponge/body puff rather than using my hands, however this is just a personal preference.
Again these appear on the side of the bottle and state that you should avoid getting this product into your eyes, if this should occur then rinse with clean water. This is standard for this type of product and is what I expect to find under the warnings heading.
Price and Availability
As I have mentioned I didn't purchase my bottle of Soap and Glory Foam Call Body Wash myself, however I have had a look around to see what this product costs. The 500ml bottle that I received is available in Boots and cost £6.50, I did think this was quite expensive for a body wash, however since using it I have discovered that you only need a small amount of it making it very long lasting and worth the money so in the long run it doesn't work out that much at all as you will not need to replace it that often.
I have been using my bottle of Soap and Glory Foam Call Body Wash for a while now and have been very pleased with it. Firstly I really like the sweet mix of fruity and floral fragrance that that the product has, it is described as being more of a fruity smelling product however I personally feel that there is a floral hint to it as well.
When I first used the body wash I was surprised at how little you needed and actually used far too much the first time, the body wash produces a nice creamy lather which as promised really does prevent your skin from drying out, after washing with this my skin feels lovely and soft and not dry.
After using the Foam Call Body Wash my skin feels and smells clean and fresh, the fragrance is quite long lasting and does linger on my skin for a while. There are no promises of this being suitable for sensitive skin as it is quite highly perfumed, however I personally have had no problems with using this and it has had no adverse effects on my skin and has not caused irritation at all.
In my opinion this is definitely more of a feminine product and there is no way I could imagine my Husband borrowing it. For me the only disadvantage if I had to choose one would be the price, whilst it is worth the money as it is an excellent quality and also long lasting it is a little on the expensive side to lay out for a body wash in one go. I would certainly use this product again in the future and would definitely recommend it to any one, it has certainly lived up to the expectations I had of the Soap and Glory products.
Soap and Glory Foam Call
This product can be used as a shower gel or a bath cream. Personally, it has never bothered me to use a shower gel in the bath or visa versa, if it lathers enough its good enough for me! It is white in colour and has a light, smooth texture and a pleasant smell which isn't to overpowering. After using it my skin was left feeling soft and moisturised with a lovely smell remaining on the skin. It has exotic sounding smells such as pomelo, but the over scent is of rich fruit with a creamy smell to it.
This product is priced at around £6-£7 for 500ml depending on where you buy from. As I have mentioned before, both Amazon and Boots sell this and other products. It is a little bit more expensive than other shower gels on the market.
Foam Call lathers up very easily apparently, thanks it its "M-suds" and only a small amount is needed to cover most of the body in foam. The more the cream is manipulated the more the smell fills the air. As I have said before, it doesn't become to overpowering, but is strong enough to leave behind a pleasant scent on the skin after the cream is rinsed off and skin dried. With the pump action lockable nozzle the product can be easily transported without it leaking. It doesn't have any wow factor, but there is a certain feel to it which makes it lovely to use of a regular basis.
A pretty decent product considering the price. It has a lovely smell and leaves the skin smooth and soft. It lasts a moderate time with regular use. I will rate it 4 stars, sadly it loses one, because it is slightly over priced and does lack a bit of dazzle power, however it is a nice product to use regularly.
I received this as a gift for my birthday from my husband back in April. He knows I like soap and glory products, so when he saw that this was a freebie at the time if you spent £10 on the range, he bought me some bits and got this free for me.
As a freebie, how great to get a full size 500ml bottle of product. Normally this would cost £6.50 in Boots, although this range is quite often on 3 for 2 promotion so you can get it cheaper if you buy a few products together.
The shower and bath body wash is in a pink bottle which is slightly translucent so you can see how much product is inside. The bottle has a pump dispenser, so it is great to pump some out onto a sponge or some exfoliating gloves while you are in the shower.
The product is light pink in colour, and quite thin I find compared to some of the other shower products I use. The smell is not quite as nice as other prodcts in the range, still slightly sweet and fruity, but this product has peppermint essential oils in, and to me it is not as nice as the scent from the body scrubs and hand cream I have tried.
Because it is quite thin, I find I need 2-3 squirts to get enough wash on my gloves to make a decent foam to cover my whole body. The wash is not drying on my skin, but it doesn't leave any particular scent on it either, and overall, I find it a little disappointing for a soap and glory product.
I don't mind using it, but I can't see me buying it again as I prefer something that leaves a stronger scent, and to me I would rather pay a few pounds less and buy something like the N-spa range or even the Radox shower smoothies which also exfoliate. This is just ok, and not really worth spending so much on when it seems to get used quite quickly and is not a more premium shower experience.
I have been using a few Soap & Glory products lately and, as I generally find them very good, I been tempted to try some new ones. I received a full size 500 ml bottle of the Foam Call Bath and Shower Wash a few weeks ago when I spent £10 on Soap & Glory products in Boots. It is always worth looking out for that sort of promotion or deal on the range, as they happen fairly often. At full price, this costs £6.50 for a large 500 ml bottle.
=== Packaging ===
The 500 ml is a very generous size. It is a round bottle with a pump dispenser on the top. The pump can be turned sideways to turn it on, so that it will dispense the liquid shower gel when pressed, and when you turn it back it locks into an "off" position, meaning you cannot accidentally knock it and spill the contents out. I find this very practical as it is easy to get the right amount out and means the product will last a long time, with waste being avoided. I use one or two pumps on a shower puff.
The bottle has typical Soap & Glory retro styling, with a pink background, black and white retro photos and quirky comments and puns on it. Personally it's not really my cup of tea, but since I like the products I put up with the slightly cheesy look they have, and I know the design does appeal to a lot of people. Anyone who knows Soap & Glory will know what to expect from their design and branding!
=== Use ===
As stated, I generally dispense 1 or 2 pumps of the product onto a shower puff. As the name is Foam Call, I was expecting a generous lather and I was not disappointed. It really does lather up very well, producing plenty of foam and bubbles. I like a lot of bubbles as it helps me feel cleaner. It feels great to use when you really want to feel scrubbed clean, like after a work out. I have also tested it out by lathering it on wet hands, without a puff, as I know some people don't use shower puffs. This also produces a good amount of foam, but obviously not as much as with the puff, as the puff keeps on producing more foam as you use it.
Soap & Glory say Foam Call is formulated with "M-SUDS moisture system molecules and grapeseed EFAs to reduce the drying effects of your daily soap-up". I have no idea what M-SUDS are and I do find it a bit unneccessary that they create their own name rather than telling you what is actually in it, but it is not a big deal. I like that it includes grapeseed. Foam Call does leave my skin soft and in good condition, but I have to admit I don't really have any problem with dry skin on my body anyway and never feel particularly dried out after a shower. So I can't comment on how well it will moisturise if you do have dry skin.
The scent is delicious. It is called "Fruitigo" and includes notes of frozen yuzu, orange oil, green fig and jungle pomelo essence. I do find it appealing that Soap & Glory have crafted their own lovely scent for this shower gel rather than just making it smell of one fruit e.g. just plain orange flavour. You can definitely smell the orange in this, but the mixture makes it more interesting and original. It is more subtle than some of the strong plain fruit shower gels out there and smells very fresh and juicy. Personally I didn't find the scent lingered for long, but that is okay by me, as it does not interfere with my perfume.
=== Over all ===
This is a great shower gel which lathers up very well, smells great and I really enjoy using it. It will last ages and the pump bottle is practical. I would recommend it.
Why is it everything runs out at once? Even though you buy them at different times of the month, week and so on? This week was shower gel, between the Hubby and I we usually have 3 different ones on the go and as you'd expect all three ran out together, how this happens I don't know, but as my Lush order of a years supply of Snow Fairy hadn't arrived I had to run to the nearest place that sells shower gel and that was Boots. Going into Boots is always dangerous for me because those 3 for 2 offers always wait for me to walk in the shop and shout 'pick me' and naturally I am always swayed when it is a brand I like.
Besides Lush and Snow Fairy which is my absolute favourite ever product from Lush, coming in second place is Soap and Glory products and in my time I have written a fair few reviews on the Soap and Glory range. Whether it is the pink packaging, the quirky black and white pictures or the funky names the products are given, I will happily try them all and whenever I need something there is always an offer on to tempt me to try something new and re-stock on my trusted favourite products.
So the shower gel I opted for was a new product from Soap and Glory called 'Foam Call Bath and Shower Gel' and it is marketed as being a 'dual use product for both the bath and shower', well I always use Lush Snow Fairy when I am in the bath anyway to wash with so dual use or not it would get used that way. Again as with Pulp-friction which is the last product I used from the Soap and Glory Range, this too has the new 'Fruity-go fragrance' which I really like the smell of and you are simply directed to 'rub a handful on damp skin, massage until it bubbles up and then rinse'. As this was on a 3 for 2 it turned out to be the free product but to purchase it would cost you £6.50 for 500ml at the full price.
The packaging on Soap and Glory products for me is one of their main selling points, I love the dusty pink coloured tubes and bottles and the 1950s styled pictures which are present on the front of the product which usually has a woman, in a black and white style photo laughing or relaxing and in this case said lady is clearing in the bath whilst on the telephone and she looks extremely happy. Now using the telephone whilst in the bath is not something I do regularly but it didn't stop me purchasing the product. As this shower/bath gel is within a bottle it has a dispenser on the top which is really easy to use and one simply pump action dispenses enough product to be used on your sponge, puff or whatever it is you are using, or if nothing then the palm of your hand. The first thing I noticed about the product was the fragrance because it is distinctly similar to Pulp-Friction although there was a slight hint of something else mixed in. The rest of the bottle is quite similar in design to the other products from within this range in that the lettering alternatives between being pink and silver, you can clearly see the name of the product and on the back of the bottle you will find a list of ingredients. One other thing to note is that the slight creamy colour background behind the wording 'Foam Call' is the exact colour of the shower/bath gel inside to me, not quite white but not cream either, an inbetween colour.
So to the ingredients, whilst the list isn't as exhaustive and full of essential oils like Lush, there are a few which are worthy of mentioning and they start with Grape seed Oil which is a great skin moisturiser along with the rapeseed Oil which is also present. Add to that Fig Fruit extract which again is kind to the skin and has moisturising properties, next comes orange oil which helps to detoxify the skin and remove impurities which can cause breakouts of spots and it also soothes dry irritated skin. Peppermint Oil was again a surprise ingredient for me because I like with Pulp-Friction, I still couldn't detect it was there at all and usually with anything minty it stands out and often dominates the aroma, however not this time and on the skin peppermint oil is used to relieve skin irritations and itchiness but also has a cooling action which is soothing especially for those skin irritations. The final ingredient I am going to mention is frozen Yuzu and that is because I have never heard of it before and I looked it up online to find that it is comes from Japan and it is said to be best used by those who are stressed, lead a stressful life or need to relax because it has a refreshing and uplifting effect on the body whilst calming the mind but also has another benefit and that is the "upliftment to depressive states, frustration, regret and also helps to build confidence. So with all of that included and more you would expect to find an absolute brilliant product and that is exactly what you get.
Following the instructions given when using this product I dispensed an ample amount onto my bright pink Soap and Glory shower puff and massaged it onto my skin to find that it creates loads of lather in no time and you certainly need no more than one dispensed blob at any one time unless you want to be overflowing with bubbles. After using in either the bath or the shower my skin felt silky smooth and was really moisturised and more importantly it smelt wonderfully of citrusy orange aroma that lingered on my skin and throughout the house for hours after using.
This is a product I absolutely love and wont hesitate to purchase again, I love everything about it and the way it leaves my skin feeling and smelling after use.
