Soap and Glory Review

Hello everyone,
This week I bought some more Soap and Glory stuff. Usually I rarely buy it as it is sort of expensive here in Germany (like 15 € for Rich and Foamous), but they had a sale on face products this week. AND a few weeks ago I had a Douglas voucher so I treated myself with something else.And there is some stuff I had before... so I figured it is time for a Little Soap and Glory post ;-)
Soap & glory has great Quality products and the packaging is all pink and girlie, often featuring Little pin up Girls onn those.. Seriously: How could I possibly resist? But let´s tell more about the products itself.
"At last - a simple solution for large pores and clogging. Just Scrub Your Nose In Itâ„¢ with this amazing face scrub. Our fruit-acid formula leaves skin looking bright and Radiant."
My declared favourite product is "Scrub your nose in it" which you can use both as a mask and a Peeling. It has a  minty fragrance and feels fresh on the Skin. I don´t use it all the time. I have combination Skin that is often "getting used" to a product to an extend that a product that used to work before stops working so I have to Switch to something else for a while (that´s really annoying. So I have several go-to products that I use for about a month and than Need to go to another one. But as I know this it´s no big deal anymore). In short: It is one of the products I regulary return to ;-) It was a re-purchase cause Douglas put it in their sale.
"Our special clogged T-zone formula Includes peach extract (with skin smoothing fruit acids), quillaja bark (a gentle natural ‘soap’), jojoba oil (an emollient skin softener), Detoxyboost™ technology (to help purify and deep clean) and Poreshrink R2™ (for a clearer, fresher, brighter complexion). In our opinion it’s the best cleansing milk on the market! "
Peaches and Clean is not available in Germany. I bought it from the UK via ebay. Surprisingly you can get Soap and Glory for half the Price via ebay, but often the shipping costs turn out so high that it Ends up beeing only 2 or 3 € less if you get it from there. So in the Long run it´s not worth the weeks of waiting :-( However I was curious to try this one as I read about it so I bought it, had it shipped to me and Boy, do I love it. It smells delicious like peaches (the Name gives it away, huh?;-) and has a lovely creamy texture (well, that was hard to figure out as well, right?) It is a great cleanser for the Skin, but not as thorough as Bloggers Claim it to be (or my make up is just too water-proof for it). Usually I first use my Sebamed Foam to clean my face and if there are any remains I use Peaches and Clean to get rid of it, I really like the pump dispenser, too!
"A high-tech, gentle non-drying foaming facial wash, formulated with complexion-friendly, easy-
rinse surfactants and special SUPERFRUITâ„¢ PLUM skin brightening complex. "
Face Soap and Clarity is a completely new product to me. It was in the Douglas sale for roughly 5€ so I thought I try it. I only used it two days for now, but like the soft Feeling it gives my Skin. This could be the beginning of a wonderfull friendship.
"Scented with a tempting blend of bergamot, peach, strawberry, jasmine, mandarin and musk. Sensible men have been driven to dizziness by this moisturising scented mist. "
Girligo is a really nice spray on moisturizer if you are on the run. If I am in a hurry I just spray it on before I have to run to make sure my legs are moisturized and smooth :-) I have been using the same bottle forever so it is a looooong Lasting product ;-)

"Almond and honey milks, oat extract, and our soft and frothy MoistureBoost system leave skin clean, supple and irresistibly scented. The next best thing to waking up to the smell of fresh baking is taking a shower with RICH & FOAMOUS Body Wash. Super creamy, ultra sudsy, conditioning on dry skin, it's everything you ever wanted in a wash. "
Rich and Foamous is another new product I purchased. Oh god, it smells so delicious. I only wish the fragrance would be more Long Lasting! Now I could buy the Smoothie Star Body Lotion which has the matching fragrance, but it costs 17 € in Germany... I just can´t justify paying this for a Body Lotion! Maybe I´ll put it on my wishlist for Johns and my anniversary or Xmas.


  1. ooooooooooooooooooh DIESER Post von dir ist mir höchst symphatisch :-D ich hab ne eigene kleine S&G Theke daheim wo ich alle meine Schätzchen stehen habe und im Wechsel benutze.
    Die Face Soap benutze ich bestimmt schon 1,5 Jahre täglich und bin absolut begeistert von ihr. Mich ärgert nur immer der hohe Preis -.- immer wenn ich in london bin schlage ich da zu, denn die Sachen sind dort viel günstiger. Falls du mal nach UK kommen solltest, schau dir auch mal die Kosmetik von S&G an. Eine meiner liebsten lidschattenpaletten ist von denen, aber auch nicht hier erhältlich.

    Schönen einkauf hast du gemacht, viel spass damit und ich freu mich, dass du auch ein S&G Fan bist <3

  2. Haha, da kann man mal sehen was ein Blog Post ausmacht ;-) Hoffe du hast noch bei Douglas zugeschlagen, weil die Face Soap ja auf 5 € runtergesetzt ist. :-) Ich hoffe mal in die UK zu kommen und dann werde ich sicherlich einiges an S&G nach Hause schmuggeln ;-)

    1. Ich habs leider zeitlich nicht zum douglas geschafft :-( ausserden habe ich mir noch Tage bevor die Aktion gestartet ist die face soap zum vollen Preis gekauft *argh*. Und auf der HP war die dann auch schon weg...irgendwie hat sich da alles gegen mich verschworen haha.
