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!).

I love Soap & Glory products! I’m sure it has something to do with their bright Barbie-pink packaging with retro nineteen-fifties style fonts.

A Soap & Glory product I regularly carry around in my handbag is their ‘Hand Food’; a decadently scented hand cream enriched with Shea Butter.

Who doesn’t want a dewy, youthful complexion clear of blemishes and tell-tale signs of aging? I for one have scoured the retail isles trying one cleverly marketed pot after the other, and then I discovered Human+Kind.

It all made sense. Why pile up your skin with scary, unpronounceable lab concoctions when you can turn back to nature for a simpler, cleaner answer? Developed in Ireland, Human+Kind takes on a refreshingly simple approach on beauty. I have been using their Anti-Ageing Cream, and this nifty product is a face cream, an anti-aging cream and an under-eye cream all in one. I am not exaggerating when I say I felt my skin tighten on first use. It must have something to do with their key ingredient, Achmella Oleracea aka ‘Nature’s Botox’.
