Land of 'Soap & Glory'

2.7.09

This is one of my favourite brands so I'm going to have a mini rave about a couple of their products.


First up is the hand cream, Hand Food. I always keep a hand cream on my desk at work and in my handbag and I apply it religiously. I usually just buy the cheapest/the one on special offer/or the one I can afford to buy with my Boots points!

A couple of months back I bought a travel sized tube of Hand Food for around £2, just to give it a try. It claimed to be a "non-greasy hydrating hand cream with shea butter, macademia oil & marshmallow". I was sold. Anything with marshmallow in it gets my vote!

I loved this stuff straight away. The smell is divine! It reminds me of being on holiday (which can never be a bad thing), it sinks right in and doesn't leave any greasy residue behind. I ran out earlier this week and bought another, this time the full sized tube which was around £4.40 I think.

The great thing about Soap & Glory is that a lot of the products come in mini travel sized pots so for a couple of quid you can try something out and if you don't like it, it's not such a big deal!

Another Soap & Glory product I have been using regularly for a while is Fab Pore. It's a 15 minute facial peel which claims to reduce the appearance of pores. This does exactly what it says on the tin, so to speak! Every time I use it I'm left with visibly softer, smoother skin and I always see a visible difference to my pores.


This product has lasted me ages as you only need a grape sized amount (the pot is only around £5). The mask should be rubbed into the skin until all the little green beads have disappeared and then either left for 5 minutes (for a quick fix) or 15 minutes for a deeper clean.
.
I was pleasantly surprised by this product. I didn't expect to see or feel any difference but I did, even after the 1st use. I will definitely re-purchase this when it runs out!
.
Next on my list of things to try are the Flake Away body scrub and the Righteous Butter body butter! :)

heya. I have this hand cream from avon called African Shea Butter or something. It's really greasy though however if I use it every day it does get my cuticles looking really nice. It stinks though I once put it on in the morning before school and some people where moaning aboutthe smell :S I was so embarassed. :P

p.s. I read your post on Helesays. I was wondering what you do in body balance? I used to do football but gave it up and am hopefully starting wsimming now :)

@suzannah - great minds think alike! :) yeah the names of all the products are really clever & different. xx

@butterfly - me too! and i love the packaging/product names too. xx

Victoria said...

@hele - yeah you should! it's lovely. and i'm so pleased you found the perfect place! it sounds lovely! xx

Victoria said...

@luc - that story is funny. it sounds good as a product to use before bedtime, that way no-one can smell it! :)

i'm not sure about body balance, it was my mum and sister that did it. i never tried it. if you google 'body balance' there is a Les Mills website and it explains all the different classes e.g. body pump, body combat, body balance. xx

Victoria said...
