Soap & Glory Mighty Mouth Lipcare & Plumping Kit
Advantages: The exfoliator and moisturising stick are fabulous!
Disadvantages: The 'Mighty Mouth Lip Balm' is sticky on your lips :-(
I first came across Soap & Glory a few years back, when I was given a body wash and moisturising set.
The products were soft on my skin, and I loved the quirky packaging.
So, this year for Mothers Day, I decided to treat myself to a Soap & Glory Bonus Bumper pack!
I saw the pack advertised on an offer via Martin Lewis 'money saving tips' website. I purchased the pack on-line for £35.00 instead of £40.00. My partner collected my present from our local Boots store (therefore, no further costs added for delivery).
There were many fabulous items in my bumper pack. This review is based on the 'Mighty Mouth, 3 Steps To Gorgeous Lips Kit'.
The items are contained in a bright pink rectangular cardboard box, with a retro 'old fashioned' black and white picture of a beautiful lady with 'pouty, shiny lips'. The Soap & Glory logo is also well displayed.
There are several quirky slogans on the front i.e, 'You want full lips? I'll show you full lips'
The front of the box also opens displaying the contents inside through a clear plastic screen.
The inside cover contains informative instructions and tips on how to best use the product. This is done in in a rather comical way i.e, 'use twice a day maximum, unless you want lip colour to default to red and raw'
The bottom of the box displays ingredients for each of the three products inside.
On the back, there are more tips on how to make the most of the product, along with more witty comments.
There is also product contact information and a website address to leave feedback on the product.
'Mighty Mouth Smooth & Soft Lip Balm - This is a double ended stick with each of the products at either end. The stick is black with silver writing. The lids at either end are clearly labelled 'Smooth over' and 'Soften up'.
Both products are sized 4g ( 0.14 U.S. 0z)
'Smooth over' -
A gentle exfoliating stick for you lips. It is beige in colour and contains little grains to exfoliate. It has no particular smell.
'Soften up' -
A moisturising stick for your lips. It is also beige in colour. It has a fruity (pineapple) smell.
'Mighty Mouth Super Filling Lip Balm' -
This product comes in a seperate clear squeezy tube with a black lid. The lip balm also smells fruity (pineapple) and appears to be an orangey/coral colour. It is sized 9ml 0.3 U.S fl 0z.
MY EXPERIENCE OF USING THE PRODUCTS:
When I first used these products my lips were extremely flaky, dry and sore. I followed the instructions and applied the exfoliating stick, followed by the moisturising stick. I needed to use the exfoliating stick a few times before the grains came to the surface. The moisturising stick felt very smooth and creamy on my lips, a little greasy, but no more than other lip moisturisers. My lips felt instantly hydrated. I was very impressed when i woke up the next morning to find that my lips were no longer 'flaky' and felt nice and soft. I also liked the light fruity smell of the moisturising stick. I use the stick a couple of times a week to keep my lips in good condition. Thumbs up!
The 'Mighty Mouth Super Filling Lip Balm' felt quite tingly when first applied, but that soon fades away. My lips did look slightly fuller but the balm was quite thick and gloopy. It also felt very tacky on my lips. The balm has a clear appearance once applied, so it may be worn over coloured lipstick. The balm does sink in after sometime, but still feels slightly tacky, which I do not like. No thumbs up there then!
The double ended stick lives up to my high expectations from using other Soap & Glory products. However the 'Mighty Mouth Lip Balm' ruins the set for me. I would definitely want to purchase the double end stick again (It is the best conditioning product I have found for my lip care) but I would not want to purchase the 'Mighty Mouth Lip Balm again!
As far as I am aware these two products are sold as a twin set and are not sold separately. This set costs around £10 in Boots. I would not want to pay that much knowing that I wouldn't be using one of the two products.
I like the fact that there is a website displayed on the packaging where consumers can leave feedback on the products. This makes me feel that Soap & Glory care about their customers and the products they sell.
The compact double ended stick saves space and is a great size to carry in your bag :-)
Summary: Loved the 'smooth over' 'soften up' stick! Not to keen on the Lip Balm though :-(
