Soap and Glory

Soap and Glory Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths

I adore soap and glory, its my favourite "smellies" brand alongside Lush. I tend to buy Soap and Glory more just because its stocked in my local Boots whereas the nearest Lush is about half an hour car ride away. I love the smells, packaging, quirky names of products and the fact that it actually does make a difference. It does what it says on the tin! I got an insane amount of Soap and Glory products for Christmas and many of them I have never used before so i've decided to do a review of each one. I know its a fashion blog but I honestly love smellies as much as clothes! I can spend hours in the bathroom!

My boyfriends sister brought me this lovely gift set for Christmas with so many goodies inside. Look how massive the big sponge thing is! I was so pleased to open this, she knows me well haha! I love the shape of the wash bag, its just the right size to fit all my toiletries for when I go away.

Along with it came some Soap and Glory Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths that I have been wanting to try for a long time. I haven't yet because as a student they are too expensive for my budget! I cannot wait to splash out certain things once I have a real job!

At the minute I currently use Boots own band of facewipes (pictured below). This is only because I am cheap and they are always on offer. Currently they are three for £3. Ive been using since I was in school so for about 5 years. However I have found recently that they tend to be quite dry (even when first opened) and have began to hurt my eyes when I try to remove stubborn make up. There does not seem to be alot of mositure in the wipes. Im sure the scrubbing is not doing my wrinkles any favours!

First off I really like the fact that the pack has a plastic cover as there is nothing worse then the lid pealing off and the wipes are all dry as result the next time you go to use them! When I opened them up the smell reminded me of toothpaste, it was minty fresh smell. It is a really strong smell. Im not much of a fan of mint but thats just personal choice. I used kids bubblegum flavored toothpaste until was about 18 because I hated the taste haha!

The make up remover test:

I dont wear that much make up during the day. I only use concealer, bronzer and mascara but cake it on when I go out of an evening so im not sure how the wipes work with lots of make up on. But I found when I used the wipes that they were full of moisture and did not feel rough on my skin. They were slightly textured and were a good size. They didnt feel as rough on my eyes as the Boots ones have recently and my eyes did not sting afterwards. They were very good at getting every last scrap of make up off. I really like the fact as well that they have a built in exfoliator so your skin is getting two work outs. Overall I think I would buy them again, I got used to the minty smell and it doesn't bother me anymore. They feel a lot softer on my skin and I think they are well worth the money. Im a convert!On a side note Ive tried out a new nail varnish that I got for Christmas. Totally Teal by No7. Im not too sure, I dont know if it suits me. I love it in the bottle but don't know if its too dark. Im going to leave it on anyway to see if it grows on me. Sorry for the blurry image!
What do you think? Yay or nay?

  10. I love Soap and Glory too. I got a big box set thing of it for Christmas and I'm hoping that'll keep me stocked up for most of the year. My skins a bit sensitive when it comes to cleansing wipes so I found their wipes stung a bit, but I love the rest of the stuff X

  14. I've never tried Soap and Glory, but I think I'll have to now! The nail varnish looks good - a nice alternative to black (my favourite nail varnish).
