Soap & Glory The Scrub Of Your Life Body Scrub Review!

Hello everyone! Today I'm here reviewing the exfoliator I've been using for the past couple of months and I've actually just finished it so I feel it's the right time to talk about it. I cannot be the only one who loves the feeling of pure silky smooth legs and who genuinely enjoys the sensation of exfoliating their legs, right?! Spoilers, this exfoliator does that for me. Oh by the way, I'm talking about the Soap & Glory The Scrub Of Your Life Body Scrub, if you hadn't guessed that already. Which you most probably have. Anyway..

Coming in at £7, it's on the cheaper side (in my opinion) for Soap & Glory. You get 200ml of product and I used it up in a couple of months, which for me was quite quick and I wished there was more in it but for £7 that's still a good deal!

First off, the packaging is standard Soap and Glory, nothing too exciting but I do have a love hate relationship with the fact it's a tube. I love it because when you use it in the shower no water is getting into the actual tube so it doesn't go all watery (wow, really?! Yep.) However, it also kinda annoys me because even after a couple of months of using it I couldn't work out the exact amount I wanted to exfoliate so most of the time I used too much product.. I think I love the packaging more than I hate it though, as the tube packaging is overall just really handy and practical.

I'd also like to point out that Soap & Glory do not test on animals, which is a huge bonus for me personally.

When you squeeze the product out of the tube, it comes out in a kinda gel consistency with little pink beads inside the gel. I personally use this on my legs in the shower as my arms are quite sensitive and can break out extremely easily so I stay clear of using any products that aren't super natural on them. Since I do still have sensitive skin on my legs, I do tend to gravitate towards more gentle exfoliators. I wouldn't say this was super gentle, however it wasn't too harsh or rough for my skin and it didn't break me out at all, so I would still recommend this for sensitive skin. Just to be safe though, if you do have sensitive skin/suffer from eczema and want to try this, maybe buy the mini and test it out on a small patch of skin first, I do this quite a lot just to be safe, however I do suffer from both sensitive skin and eczema and so far, no Soap & Glory product has broke me out at all and I've tried quite a few!

What I really love about this product is when you use it in the shower when you are obviously wet (duh), it lathers up as you massage it into your legs into a thick foamy soapy consistency (as you can see below), so it feels like your not only exfoliating your legs but also really deeply washing and cleaning them if that makes sense? Usually I massage it in for a couple of minutes then wash it off, then I shave my legs so that I get that super silky feel. Once I've washed it off, honestly, my legs literally feel like silk. They are so soft and glowy, it's unreal, and this softness lasts for a good couple of days. As always though, you do have to moisturise when you get out of the shower as they will leave your legs a little dry and needing some hydration, but that's just standard so it's not a big issue.

I should also mention how much I love the scent of this product. In general I love the smell of most of the Soap & Glory range, especially the Original Pink line which is what this product is a part of. It apparently has scents of fresh bergamot and mandarin, rose, jasmine, peach, strawberry, oakmoss, amber, woody notes and warm vanilla.. Honestly though, who smells all of that? For me, it just smells fresh and fruity which is what I gravitate towards in body products and the smell lasts all day/night (depending on when you have a shower/bath)

For me, I used it once/twice a week for a couple of months and it kept my legs feeling very soft, silky and my legs didn't look as dull as they usually do, they had a glow to them which was a nice surprise! Overall I would recommend this product, it really is good at buffing and exfoliating and I personally love that it lathers up into a foamy/soapy consistency, it feels like I'm giving my legs a deep clean whilst exfoliating them at the same time.

That's about it for this post! I feel like I rambled quite a bit so I do apologise. I'm not very good at writing concisely, I'm the type of person who has to cut down 2000 words in an essay so it fits the word limit. Not kidding. I hope you enjoyed reading this review, have you tried this product before and do you have any recommendations of other Soap & Glory products that I can try? Let me know!

Have a lovely day, and don't stop smiling. :)

Hannah, xx
