Soap and Glory was founded by a lady called Marcia. Marcia was also the founder of Bliss.
Soap and Glory have an extensive range of bath and body, makeup, skincare and even perfume products and have been designed to have very retro packaging which is girly and wouldn't look bad in anyones bathroom!
Their products are currently stocked in Boots and Harvey Nichols.
They have recently released a range of Mens beauty products.
Below are the types of items sold in the ladies sections!
Gift sets - a huge range of gift sets which are mainly available at Christmas. The most common known set is the Hat Box which is a huge collection of full and travel size S&G goodies for the avid far.
You can also buy smaller gift sets with various items and prices are from £8.00 up to £50.00 for the Hat Box!
*My favourite of the gift sets is the Soaper Heroes which is basically a mini selection of 5 different products. Perfect for trying before buying full sizes. This set is £12.00*
Bath and Body - from shower gels to cellulite creams and body butters to hand and foot creams. You will find a huge choice here. There is different ranges to choose from which are different scents.
*I love the body butters and my favourite by far is the traditioner Righteous Butter at £9.00 for a huge tub. I also use the Clarifying Shower Gel on a daily basis as it makes my skin super soft and has a deliciously sweet scent. This is £5.00 for a massive pump bottle*
Skincare - cleansers, masks and wrinkle creams. Perfect range for all skin types.
*I personally have not used the skincare products so cannot comment on favourites etc*
Cosmetics - for your lips, eyes, face and brows you have a nice selection of makeup items to choose from. There is various shades as well.
*I love the Solar Highlighter as it works perfectly with my skin to give it a healthy glow. It costs £12.00*
Fragrances - S&G has a perfume called Eau de Soap and Glory. There is also 3 Moisturising Body Mists available which double up as body sprays and scents.
*I have personally only smelt the fragrance and it is sweet and sexy. The Girligo Moisturising Mist is beautiful and comes through like a milky mist leaving a beautiful scent on my skin. This is £6 for a large bottle*
Accessories - shower caps, scrunchies etc. You can also get back massages and pillows from the gift sets.
*I use the back massager which came in a gift set and I plan to buy a scrunchie after seeing glowing review on dooyoo*
Overall I love the Soap and Glory range. The packaging is retro and girly and the range is mainly pink. This is with the exception of the Spa range. S&G has known for their witty remarks on their packaging which adds a bit of quirkiness to the deal.
The prices may seem high but the quality of the products you buy well make up for the prices. The sets are excellent value. I am in heaven at Christmas when they there is a whole display dedicated to their gift sets!
My favourite products in the range are those that have the sweet Girligo scent including the moisturising mist, Righteous Body Butter and Clarifying Shower Gel amongst others.
I have only been unhappy with a few items mainly due to my own personal taste if I haven't liked the scent or the way it was dispensed but on the whole I am extremely happy.
I have managed to accrue a reasonable sized collection of S&G items and they are well looked after and treasured! I tend to buy alot of them on ebay cheap or wait til Boots have them on offer at 1/3 off then I go a bit daft!
If you haven't sampled Soap and Glory before..what are you waiting for???
Thanks for reading :)
Well where do I start really? Soap and Glory, even the name is enough to set your heart racing. What a great product range, produced by the lovely people who came up with the Bliss range of products. Soap and Glory is a quirky, kitsch brand that is loved and adored by so many and if you have tried the products you will understand why.
Last xmas they came out with a fantastic hat box gift which had a mouth watering range of products in it. It was priced at £50 but was eventually on a special offer for one week at just £20, which was exceptional value.
The box and its contents were and still are coveted by Soap and Glory fans. It was one of the seasons must have/ give gifts, so well done to Soap and Glory for coming up with it.
You can join up to the Soap and Glory website and this gives you a chance to enter competititons to win fabby promotional products, try out new things and get the latest updates on what the company is doing and where its heading with its products.
You are also able to send in pics that you feel may be suitable to be used on the next big product. Just imagine your pic on the next killer product, how cool would you feel.
The range of items on sale are also not tested on animals as Soap and Glory prefer to test them on what they call, very picky people. Nice to see a company that are steering away from that sort of thing. So I say, Long live Soap and Glory and all who sale in her.
I had not been that much aware of Soap & Glory before Christmas time. I had heard of their body butter The Righteous Butter as I often saw it picked as cream of the crop in magazines such as glamour or in newspaper beauty columns and knew people generally had a high opinion of it as with Lush which again I know little about, but other than that nothing. So it was only when the Hatbox went on sale and I thought well £50 worth of products for just £20, why not. Little did I know at the time how much of a challenge it would be to get hold of but at last I got there.
The box I got contained 11 products as well as a lovely huge pink body puff, drawstring bag and hat box. This is probably about 1/5 of their range so it gives me a pretty good idea of the range. Some of the products were a bit of a let down. The Sexy Mother Pucker plumping lip-gloss was a bit of a non-entity especially given all the hype I'd heard about this product. I didn't notice anything special about it and it was much stickier than my personal lip-gloss favourite L'Oreal Glam Shine. Glad I didn't pay £8 for it as I'd have felt a bit ripped off. Another disaster was the Hair Supply that promised much but never delivered. If there's one product to avoid it's this one as it left my hair looking like a greasy mess.
On the other hand, there are some products that I just love such as Flake Away, which is a body scrub that smells of something between sugar and peach and I regularly open the pot to inhale it it's so nice. I also love iFoam which is a body wash that smells fresh for the morning and lathers so thickly and easily. There were two body butters in this box, one called Butter Up, which is fruity and thick and the other, slightly thinner but smells divine called The Daily Smooth.
The presentation of these products is great. They tend to fall into one of two categories. The more fruity smelling products tend to come packaging in mainly turquoise tubs and tubes. The sweeter smelling products tend to come in Soap & Glory's signature colours of pink and cream, the essence of femininity. They tend to feature pictures of women in 50's looks and clothes in a very cute kitsch way. I also love the names they give these products and they do genuinely make me smile. Some of my favourites are Scrub Em & Leave Em, The Fab Pore Cleanser and the iFoam.
I have also been into Boots to investigate other products in their range and am quite tempted. I would like to try Scrub Actually and Some Like It Hot Thermal Scrub amongst others. Prices tend to be higher than most drugstore ranges but it's not that bad. Some products come just in the one size but some have a small version too so if you want to try it out first or take it away on holiday you can do so. Most of the larger products are priced roughly £6-£10 and the small versions about £3.
So it would seem that yes Soap & Glory's tactic has worked. It has won itself another fan and though it would have suffered a £30 hit on the hatbox, it's most likely that anyone, like me, who joins their growing number of customers, will probably spend this and more on products in the future. Although the hatbox was not an unrivalled success, I am lucky that of the products I received, the ones that I liked tended to be the large sizes. The rest that I haven't mentioned by name were all nice enough products but not nice enough for me to be particularly keen to go out and re-buy.
There is a new website you can check out for their product ranges, games, new and commentary. You can also sign up to their e-newsletter which will give updates and offers from time to time. Their products can be bought at Boots or at Harvey Nichols. Currently Boots is running a 1/3 off promotion so now is an excellent time to try it out.
