I am a big fan of the soap and Glory range and have tried most of the products in the range with positive results. My family and friends know how much I love the range and so it is no surprised that I receive soap and glory products as gifts. Last Christmas I was very happy to be given a beautifully gift wrapped selection of soap and glory products from a close friend. One of the items was a bottle of wash by the name of *peaches and clean*.
Peaches and clean.
The face wash comes in a plastic, pump action bottle. I really like this kind of dispenser and it is easy to use and dispenses the correct amount of face wash without any waste. The information on the bottle claims that this cleansing milk has a special * clogged pore formula with peach and gojuice extracts and oxyginseng technology*. I have no idea what any of this actually means! However the promise of clean skin that is also invigorated sounds good to me!
Soap and Glory say that this cleansing milk will not only melt away make up and grime, but will also remove water proof mascara. I have sensitive skin and am always very careful of any product I use around my eye area. However I did give it a try and was less than impressed at how well (badly) it dealt with mascara. On the positive side it didn’t cause any irritation.
Soap and Glory recommend you use this cleansing milk twice a day; first thing in the morning and before bed. It is suggested you use two pumps and then massage the cleaning milk over your face and neck. As with most soap and glory products the scent is gorgeous. The milk itself has a silky feel and it does feel very pleasant on my face. It is easy to rinse away, but this is where the positives end for me.
I used this product for a couple of weeks both in the morning and again before bed to remove my make up. At first I was pleased with the results and thought my skin felt clean and soft. However after a few weeks of use I started to notice that6 my skin was becoming very dry with flaky patches at the bridge of my nose. I always use a good moisturiser after cleansing and in the past my skin had not suffered in this way. Unfortunately I have had to stop using this cleansing and my skin has now improved.
I suspect that although soap and glory claim that this products is suitable for all skin types, it is really best suited for oily skin that is prone to blackheads. If you fancy trying it for yourself then it is available from Boots at £8 for a 250ml bottle. At present it is part of a 3 for 2 promotion.
I got this as part of a giftset and i love it. It cleans my skin of all make up, cleanses deep and leaves my skin soft and refreshed. Like all soap and glory products, it's nicely packaged and has a great scent. I often leave it on for 10-15 mins for an express face mask.
I got this Peaches and Clean 3-in-1 wash off as part of the massive Soap and Glory gift set that my boyfriend gave me for Christmas last year. At night I tend to just wipe my make up off/cleanse using a facial wipe, but for the purposes of writing a review I have been using this facial wash instead for the past week. It was a good excuse to use it anyway, even if annoyingly it means that somehow I have managed to lose my nose ring along the way, probably when drying my face afterwards!
I have a 200ml bottle which retails at £8, or can be bought in the 3 for 2 offers in Boots.
The bottle is slightly different to dooyoo's picture, being clear, and the wash is white. The writing is in pink though like other products. This is described as a deep purifying cleanser, with special clogged t-zone formula with peach & GoJuice extracts and oxyginseng technology. It all sounds very posh. In reality it really is just a face wash. It does smell very peachy (reminds me of Archers, which isn't really a great thing after a bad drunken night in 1996) and is ok, but not my favourite by any means. Just use a couple of pumps, then wash off. It does leave my face feeling clean and moisturised, and it feels and looks good the next day too. I haven't had any spots in the week I've been using it, so that must be a good thing.
I think that if this had the traditional Soap and Glory pink fragrance then I would score this higher, but really although it is a nice enough facial wash, I'm not a massive fan of peach smells, so can only give this 3 out of 5!
I’m a huge fan of the brand Soap & Glory, and have used many of their brightly-packaged, effective body products. The brand also makes facial skincare products, which I also like to sample. I am currently using the Peaches & Clean 4 in 1 Wash-off Deep Cleansing Milk, which I got in a set at Christmas.
The bottle has a pump dispenser, making it easy to get the cleanser out in a hygienic and simple way. A couple of pumps is enough to cleanse my face. I rub the cleanser over my face, adding a little water to help it lather. It has a pleasant peach scent but doesn’t irritate my skin at all. I remove the remains of the cleanser with a cotton wool pad, and follow with toner and moisturiser. If I have been wearing heavy eye makeup I sometimes use a specific eye makeup remover first; otherwise this is the sole cleansing product I use. I only use it at night, as I have another product for the daytime.
I will discuss the different claims of the product below:
3-in-1 cleansing, smoothing and revitalising milk – The product definitely cleanses effectively. It is very good at removing makeup and my face feels very clean afterwards. My skin does feel soother and fresher afterwards: by night time I can often feel tired and lethargic but using this product helps my skin feel refreshed and revitalised – which makes me feel better in general.
Deep purifying, T-zone declogging – My oily T-zone certainly feels fresh and clean after using this. It is certainly a deep cleanser as when I wipe off the cleanser with a cotton wool pad all my makeup comes away – so the product is clearly shifting it. In general, my skin is in better condition with fewer spots and clogged pores.
Boosts circulation and re-energises skin – My skin certainly feels reenergised and revitalised after use.
Melts away make-up and blackhead-causing buildup – it definitely does this, even removing mascara effectively. I do like to use an eye makeup remover when I am wearing heavy eye makeup, just because it ends up all over my face otherwise, but this cleanser does an excellent job.
Balanced for all skin types – My skin can be sensitive but I have experienced no irritation with this product at all. I have oily-combination skin and the cleanser seems to help balance out my skin. It is non-drying so I think it would be good for dry skins too.
Overall, I highly recommend this cleanser. It’s a little pricey, but it lasts for ages, doesn’t irritate my skin, removes makeup effectively and thoroughly cleans my face, leaving it glowing and refreshed.
I used to love this but all of a sudden my skin has become sensitive to this. I like the smell of this and the way it deep cleans the skin. I don't like the fact you can't use it on your eyes though and sometimes it can leave my skin feeling a bit tight.
For the past few years in the run up to Christmas, I have treated myself to the Soap and Glory Christmas gift set when it has been reduced to around half price in Boots. This is an economical way of stocking up on toiletries for the coming year, and also to try things out without having to pay full price for them. One of the items in the most recent gift set was this Peaches and Clean face wash, which currently costs £8 for 200ml, although is available on a 3-for-2 offer which Boots often run.
The cleanser advertises itself as being a "3-in-1 wash-off, deep purifying, milky creamy face cleanser with super T-zone decloggers, antioxidant-rich peach & gojuice extracts, and detoxifying oxyginseng technology". Wow, what a mouthful that all is! In everyday language, the cleanser is designed to remove make-up and dirt in a gentle manner, and re-energise your complexion.
The skin on my face is quite dry, and can be sensitive to new products, so I was a bit alarmed when I first used this that it smelt so strongly of peaches. Obviously the clue is in the name, but personally I found this fragrance far too overpowering and it didn't do much to convince me that this is a particularly natural product, as it is quite an artificial fragrance in my opinion. I found it a bit bizarre to be honest, as the smell of peaches isn't particularly uplifting, and doesn't linger after use (thankfully), so I'm not sure what the point of it is really.
Once I'd got over the smell, I started using this in conjunction with my other current facewash, and was quite disappointed with the results. The main issue for me is that it doesn't do a very good job of removing make-up, as my bathroom towels will confirm. I don't wear a lot of make-up, preferring a tinted moisturiser to full on foundation, but this cleanser failed to remove the minimal make-up I was wearing effectively, and I ended up having to put a couple of face towels in the wash prematurely once they had been covered with my brown make-up. This basically means that I can't use this cleanser for its intended purpose, and have relegated it to use in the mornings only, when my face is make-up free and just needs freshening up during my morning shower.
On the plus side, the cleanser itself is very creamy, and does feel luxurious in use. It's quite a thick cleanser and I do feel that it hydrates my skin and possibly smoothes it out a little. It certainly feels smooth when I'm applying this cleanser. Rinsing it off is best done in the shower I found, because otherwise it doesn't feel like it's come off completely if you're doing it over the bathroom sink.
Packaging wise, this is in keeping with the Soap and Glory retro feel, and I like the fact it has a pump dispenser as it makes it very convenient to use without having to fiddle around with flip top lids or even worse the dreaded screw top. This has been well thought out, because not many face washes or cleansers come in this type of packaging, but it's just a shame the product itself wasn't more effective. Not one I will be using again, and it's only because I hate waste that I'm plodding through the rest of the bottle.

I enjoy using this product. It's good for taking off make up, particularly eye make up. Just be careful not to actually get it in your eyes as it will sting like mad! However, I do like to follow up with another cleanser after use as I'm not quite sure whether it actually cleans my oily skin well enough. Another thing: I do feel like it can be harsh on sensitive skin and I do worry regular use would do more bad than good over time, so for that reason I took off one star. I usually find S&G products quite overpriced, but this product lasts ages if used sparingly so it's pretty good value. I also prefer the older packaging of S&G products, but the current packaging is nice too. I like the fact that it has a pump as well. Not sure if I'd repurchase as I don't love it, but I said yes as if you really do like the product then it's definitely worth buying again!
I have had this product both in gift sets and I have bought it as an individual item because I found it worked so well for me. I am quite a Soap & Glory fan (or addict!) as you may already know if you have read some of my other reviews. This particular product is a facial cleanser which removes make up.
Dooyoo's product picture for Peaches & Clean shows the old style of bottle which matched many of the other products with it's pink colour and bold writing. The packaging has since changed (although not too drastically) to fit in with the style of products in Soap & Glory's new skin care range.
Unlike the old bottle, the new one is colourless and so you can see the creamy colour of the product inside. It's really handy to be able to see how much of the product is left as you use it. The label now features pink and black writing which is still clear and bold, but a little more streamlined than the old label which had several different fonts and colours on it. The rest of the bottle is still the same, being a slim cylinder with a pump action dispenser at the top.
Although easy to use, I do have a bit of an issue with the pump dispenser. The design means that there is always a little product left in the bottom of the bottle and I really dislike waste and so in this respect the packaging could be improved slightly. However, I do find that the pump works well without blocking, breaking or sticking which is great.
***Price and availability***
Available from Boots or Harvey Nicholls along with other Soap & Glory products, Peaches & Clean will set you back £5.33 for a 200ml bottle. If you have a Boots advantage card you can earn 20 points with this purchase.
Seeing as most facial cleansers or make up removers will cost me around the same amount or more then I am more than happy to pay this price for a product that works well, I feel it offers reasonable value for money.
***What do Soap & Glory claim the product does?***
Soap & Glory claim that Peaches & Clean will remove both make up and impurities from your skin whilst boosting circulation, unclogging the T-zone and being balanced enough for all skin types. They say; "It's gentle, effective, melts away make-up (even waterproof mascara), and re-energises your complexion in two minutes. " This all sounds pretty awesome! If I hadn't already received this item in a gift set then reading these claims would have been enough to encourage me to buy it.
Some of the other claims lost my attention a little however as "antioxidant-rich PEACH & GOJUICE extracts, and detoxifying OXYGINSENG TECHNOLOGY" are all things that don't mean much at the end of the day. I mean hands up who actually knows why antioxidants are good for your skin? (without looking it up please!) And who knows what gojuice is? Also, I prefer my technology in my electronics rather than my skin care. However, I imagine that these things might well make the product sound attractive to many.
When I first used this product I noticed how lovely it smelt, I can certainly detect peaches in there, it is quite delicately scented though which is nice for something you use on your face. I also noticed how smooth and soft my skin felt after using this, which was fantastic. The creamy cleanser was very good at removing all kinds of make up and so I was rather impressed.
Within a few days of regular use I found that my skin got rather spotty! I put this down to hormones, but I have noticed that any other time I have a break from this product and come back to it my skin reacts the same. I suppose this could be the product clearing my skin of impurities, but it is annoying!
***Results after long term use***
After persevering through the spotty stage which thankfully didn't last more than a handful of days I find my skin looks and feels fantastic! I tend to use 2-3 pumps of this at night (or sometimes in the morning if I commit the awful sin of falling asleep in my make up) and my skin feels clean and soft just as it did after the first use. It certainly does live up to it's promises of unclogging skin and removing make up and so I'm very pleased with it.
I'm prone to problems with my skin because of eczema and allergies but my skin looks so good after using this that others have commented how much better it is!
***Overall opinion of Peaches & Clean***
As I said to begin with, this product does work well for me, I have purchased it many times before and I will do again in the future and so I clearly like it. Because the face cleanser is suitable for all skin types I would recommend it to others without worrying that it may not work so well.
All in all this is a good quality product from a well loved brand which makes my skin look and feel fantastic. However, the sales patter would have been more attractive to me had it been kept simple, the tiny bit left in each bottle gets on my nerves and I have found that I need a period of adjustment when using this product before my skin starts looking good and so I feel it deserves to have a star knocked off, so I'm giving it 4/5
I was lucky enough to receive a bumper bag of goodies for Christmas and one of these goodies was the Peaches and Clean Deep Purifying Cleanser.
What does the product do?
The product has been designed to cleanse the skin on the face, removing impurities and make up. The product promises to clean the skin deeply, clearing out the pores and re-energising the complexion, increasing blood circulation and removing toxins from the skin. It contains vitamins to nourish the skin, promises to fight signs of aging and to leave your face feeling fresh and clean.
How do you use the product?
The product is to be dispensed from the bottle and massaged onto the face and the neck for a few minutes. Then it should be rinsed away with warm water and then followed up with a good moisturiser.
Packaging and Price
The product comes contained within a clear plastic bottle which has some details given about the wash in pink writing. It has a pump dispenser and you have to push down on it in order to release the product. The product will cost you around £8 for 200 ml and it can be bought from both Boots and a range of online websites.
Aroma and Appearance
The product has an aroma that is exactly like peaches. It manages to not smell artificial at all and it is just like the fragrance from a tin of peaches. It has a minty smell mixed in with it which doesn't mingle well and which ruins the fragrance in my opinion. It doesn't make the product impossible to use but it is a bit sickly in my opinion. The product is white in colour and it is really rich and creamy. It seems more like a moisturiser than a face wash when you pump it from the bottle.
The product is easy to dispense from the bottle and it took about three pumps to dispense the right amount. I closed my eyes and massaged this all over the face as directed. It feels incredibly creamy on the skin and it feels like you are rubbing a moisturiser onto your face. It is silky and glides well so it doesn't pull or drag the skin as you rub. It didn't irritate my skin and it wasn't too strong for me. The fragrance is very evident at this point but I did my best to ignore it.
It was quite hard to get all of the product off my skin because it's so creamy and it took quite a bit of rinsing. It really stings your eyes if you get it in them (which I did!) which makes them a bit rubbish for removing eye make up. When I dried my face, I was shocked to see all my make up coming off on my lovely white towel meaning it hadn't cleaned my skin at all. I ended up using my usual face wash after this to ensure that my face was still clean.
The positives were that it made my skin feel really soft and hydrated and didn't leave my skin feeling tight or dry at all. The aroma didn't hang around on my skin either which was a good thing in my eyes. I decided to use this face wash in the mornings when it is already make up free and to remove it with a damp flannel to ensure its cleaning my face properly. When used in this way it does brighten my skin and make it look and feel fresh and clean.
All in all, this is a confusing product to use. It stings if you get it in the eye and didn't remove my make up leaving my white towels in a mess. It works better as a morning wash when removed with a damp flannel and it is creamy and moisturising on the skin. I will continue to use this in the mornings but I wouldn't repurchase my own bottle once this is all gone.
I have been using this since Christmas 2012 when I received a small sample in a Soap and Glory facial gift set. I was so impressed I went on to buy it in Boots.
The picture above is the old bottle, recently Soap and Glory have revamped their skincare range. I can't say I am a big fan of the new packaging as it is a boring white bottle. The product costs £8 for 200ml and is frequently on 3 for 2 in Boots.
The bottle describes the product as a 3 in 1 wash off deep purifying cleanser. The product contains what S&G call a special clogged t zone formula with peach and something called 'Go Juice'
The formula is described gentle, effective and can remove make-up it is also designed to re-energise the complexion.
This product is suitable for all skin types.
To use the product you apply 1 or 2 pumps to dry skin. The product is like a normal cream cleanser. It is white in colour and has a lovely peachy smell. As soon as I applied this to my face I noticed it was tingling slightly. It melted into my skin and was easy to massage in. Once you have massaged this in you can then rinse it off with clean water and follow with moisturiser.
The back of the bottle warns that as this product contains AHA's it can make your skin photosensitive so it advises you to wear SPF if you are off out in the sun.
My skin is dry in places and I get the occasional greasy patch in my t zone. This product suits my skin really well. It does a good job of removing dirt that can clog pores and therefore prevent blackheads. I can always tell with my skin if a cleanser is good because my skin feels smooth. After using this my skin always feels refreshed. I always follow with the S&G serum as my skin does feel a little dry after using this.
I use this once a day as recommended on the bottle in the evening. I very rarely wear make-up but when I do this cleanser does a good job of removing it all leaving my skin looking clean and fresh.
I would highly recommend this cleanser it is easy to use and makes my skin look great.
Last Christmas, Santa brought me the large Soap & Glory gift set from Boots and this was part of the contents. Until this point, I had never used the product or the brand before so I wasn't in a rush to use it, especially the Peaches and Clean as my face can sometimes be quite sensitive. However, in mid January, I suffered an outburst of spots on my chin so decided to give it a go.
***Price and availability***
To buy the product individually, it currently costs £8 for a 200ml bottle and is available from Boots, in store and online, what I do like about the range is that it is quite often on offer, whether that be 3 for 2 or buy one, get one half price. I do think that the price is quite reasonable when compared to similar products on the market. Since discovering Soap and Glory, I always stock up when on offer, for example this year, this was included in the Yule Monty gift set which was on offer at £27 and contained several off the best selling products.
The packaging has changed slightly to that of the image, as have most of the Soap & Glory products; it now comes in a clear bottle which has a clear plastic pump to the top. The product description and brand is written to the front of the bottle in black and pink writing. The bottle has changed shape slightly too, it is now a little smaller in size but slightly wider, when I re-purchased this, I thought that the bottle actually contained less but is still contains 200ml as it previously did.
According to Soap and Glory, the products melts away make-up (even waterproof mascara), and re-energises your complexion in two minutes. Using the cleaner is really simple, I just pump a couple of squirts into my hands and then start to massage into my face, particularly concentrating on my problem areas, leave for a short while if you wish and then rinse with warm water. Although the product is designed to remove makeup too, I prefer to remove mine with a cheap facial wipe to start off with and then apply.
The cleanser is white and has a really nice consistency to it, it is quite light, much like a daytime face cream and I absolutely love the fragrance, just like the name indicates, it smells of sweet juicy peaches. When first applying the cleanser, it seems to melt on my skin, absorbing really easily and when it comes to rinsing, it comes away from my face effortlessly without having to rub hard.
Within a couple of days of using, I started to notice a difference in my complexion immediately, especially on my nose where I had larger pores and my chin which had turned into a problem area. My pores were noticeably smaller and so where my spots, within a week or so, my spots had more or less cleared up and I have never suffered an outbreak since. From the first time of using, my skin also felt softer and the nice fragrance, although not as strong was left on my skin which I loved.
From mid January last year, I have used the product twice daily and my skin has never been in such good condition, the bottle lasted me a good 5 months before I had to repurchase which I think is excellent, no over cream I have used has lasted so long and delivered such good results.
According to Boots website, the product is dA 3-in-1, wash-off, deep purifying, milky-creamy face cleanser with super T-zone decloggers, antioxidant-rich PEACH & GOJUICE extracts, and detoxifying OXYGINSENG TECHNOLOGY, I have no idea what this means, but whatever it does, I can say that it works and overall, I would recommend this product 100%, giving it 5 out of 5 stars.
Thanks for reading.
Santa was very generous this year and brought me a Soap & Glory Yule Monty set to open up on Christmas morning. This may or may not have had anything to do with it being on special offer throughout a small period of the festive season at £27 a pop for a number of their fantastic products, but either way I was absolutely over the moon! I'm a big fan of the soap and glory sets however I can't afford to use their products on a regular basis (let's face it, they cost a fortune) so I look forward to Christmas and Birthdays! I haven't tried many of the products in this year's Christmas set, and one of those was Peaches and Clean.
This product is 200ml of promise, stating "3 in 1 wash off deep purifying cleanser" and promises to "smooth, purify, revitalise, de log, boost circulation, re-energise skin, melt away make up and suitable for all skin types." The packaging is very attractive and really girly which sold it for me. It's a lovely soft pink colour and looks very attractive in my bathroom full of girly things! The scent is faintly peach which suits me fine, as I can't stand the smell of peaches but I miraculously enjoy the smell of this. The packaging consists of a sleek 200ml bottle and an effective pump which is beneficial for bacteria control and controlling how much you would like to use.
Applying the product is very pleasant as the consistency is milky however not too thin, around 2/3 pumps is enough to cover my face and neck which indicates to me that I'll be getting a lot of use! It smooths onto my skin like a dream and covers my skin evenly. It doesn't foam up or anything and feels lovely and silky on my skin. For the past week I've been alternating between this product every night and a scrub every few days which appears to be working well. My skin has a lovely silky feel and it has that lovely 'well looked after' feel. One thing about using this every night is that it can leave my skin feeling a little bit tight, and although I don't have sensitive skin I would advise buyers who do so to skin test this first.
My skin feels baby soft and the product is a great pampering treat at the end of a hard shift. It removes my make up effectively and sets me up for some beauty sleep. This does however make my skin feel tight and uncomfortable but as soon as I apply moisturiser it's fine. I would recommend this product as it's a nice treat for any girl who likes her spa like treatments! At £8 a pop it's expensive compared to other ones on the market, and the price is usually what puts me off soap & glory.. But hey, if you can afford it why not?
Peaches and Clean is a 3 in 1 wash off cleanser that claims to remove make up and impurities, and re-energise complexion. It is part of the Soap & Glory product range and can be found In Boots for £8 for a 200ml bottle.
The packaging is very aesthetically pleasing, looking fantastic on the shelf and in your bathroom, just as every other Soap and Glory products. It uses a pump dispenser which is my favorite as it allows you to control how much you pump out and it also looks better. The best thing about this cleanser was definitely the smell. I'd describe it as a mint and peaches scent. It's the perfect scent for a cleanser; fruity and refreshing, just what you need when you wake up in the morning. However scent alone is not enough to make it worth buying...
As a big fan of Soap and Glory I was quite disappointed to find that this cleanser did not live up to my high expectations. I trialled this as part of my everyday skincare routine, applying it and washing it off before toning and moisturising but found it did my skin no favours. The consistency of the cleanser was lotion-like but when applied to my skin felt quite greasy and not at all creamy like my cleansers usually do. I also noticed after around 10 seconds of leaving the cleanser on, it really started to irritate my skin and sting a little bit. This meant I couldn't leave it on for as long as I usually do with other cleansers.
I found overall that this cleanser simply didn't work. I didn't notice that it did anything great for my skin and I would certainly not recommend it to people with sensitive skin or oily skin. It may do a better job for people who to tend to have more dry skin.
Overall rating : 2 stars.
Thank you for reading!
This cleanser is brilliant for anyone who doesn't want to have to scrub away at their face to exfoliate - the fruit acids do this for you without the risk of broken capillaries, or damage to your skin from over-zealous scrubbing.
It's best used after you've taken your makeup off, so that you get the full effect and your skin is left feeling clean and smooth. The cleanser doesn't foam up when your rub it onto wet skin, and it doesn't really feel as if it's doing a vast amount - it does exfoliate, but very gently, so it can be used every day without irritating the skin. One or two pumps should easily cleanse your whole face, and the bottle does last a long time (even though, for me, it's quite an expensive cleanser). It leaves your skin feeling smooth and soft, without causing any irritation, and it cleans out your pores to prevent spots/blocked pores effectively.
I must admit I am a Soap & Glory fan. I got the Peaches & Clean within a Christmas gift set, and the first thing I loved about it was the smell. I'm not a huge peach fan, but it smells lovely.
The bottle is pump action which is great for not wasting any. It feels smooth on the skin, and does what it's meant to - removes make-up, dirt and softens the skin. I like how quick it is, and your skin really does feel clean after. it's also moisturising enough that if you are in a real rush you could go without a separate moisturiser as it is softening to the skin.
My only negative is that this is a smooth cleanser, without any exfoliation. I tend to use it with an exfoliating pad every other day and my skin shines!
I would recommend this product to anyone who has "normal" skin, it may not be exfoliating enough for someone with problem skin.
