What’s not to love about a good old body scrub-down? I am a body scrub hoarder. I have a collection of body brushes, I whip up homemade scrubs in my kitchen, and tend to buy a whole stack of branded scrubs ranging in scrub-strength.
Have you tried UK skincare brand Soap & Glory before? If you are a regular at Boots Pharmacy, it would be hard to miss seeing their pretty pink products on the shelves. Love their packaging and retro-style branding.
I was recently sent 5 of the best-selling body-scrubs, and asked to declare one as my personal favorite. Each scrub is uniquely different and caters to uniquely different needs so it really was a tough choice (oh the perils of being a beauty blogger… lounging in my tub trying one decadently scented scrub after another!).
Here’s a brief intro on the 5 scrubs… Read on to find out which of these I’ve chosen as my favorite:
Sugar Crush: loaded with smashed brown sugar sweet lime, almond oil & macadamia grains. Perfect for the weekly scrub-down .
Scrub ‘Em & Leave ‘Em: For a brilliant buff, try the Scrub ‘Em & Leave ‘Em enriched with babassu oil, sea salt and skin-loving jojoba & mandarin oils .
Scrub Of Your Life: a light skin polishing mix featuring sugar, natural apricot kernel oil, kukui oil, mango butter and vitamin E .
Flake Away: For those who like it gentle, Flake Away is a decadently rich, mildly exfoliating scrub featuring shea butter, sweet almond oil, peach seed powder, sea salt and sugar .
Smoothie Star: I’ve saved the best for last… My absolute favorite out of the five is the Smoothie Star. This rich, creamy scrub has the decadent scent of maple syrup and is loaded with organic cupuacu bio scrubs, bananas, almond and honey extracts. It’s moisturizing yet also happens to be a hard-working exfoliater. It leaves my skin super soft and squeaky clean, and that scent… I hope they come up with a bottled up version of it!
