My Top 5 Soap & Glory Products


Soap & Glory is a brand most beauty bloggers confess to loving. I first discovered them years ago when The Righteous Butter was recommended on Gok Wan's How to Look Good Naked (remember that show?!) and I have come back to them time & time again ever since. Since I have quite a large collection of their products (anyone else buy the massive gift set as a Christmas present to themselves?!), rather than show you them all, I thought I would share with you my current top 5 favourites. Believe me, this was a very difficult decision to make! So, in no particular order...

1. Heel Genius Foot Cream I used to suffer very badly from rough skin on my feet but never really thought to pick anything like this up. I first tried Heel Genius when it came in one of their Christmas gift sets and instantly fell for it. It doesn't smell very overpowering like a lot of foot creams do, and has quite a nice scent to it. You just massage a generous layer onto your feet before bedtime, pop on some socks and let it work it's magic. It did take me a little while to get used to wearing socks in bed - to me it just feels weird - but the results are worth it. I tend to use this 1 or 2 times a week and it leaves my feet feeling lovely and smooth. I've recommended this to my sister too, who suffers even worse than I did, and she's also converted!

2. Hand Food Hand Cream This one is a big favourite of S&G lovers and one of the first of their products I ever picked up. I don't tend to suffer from dry hands regularly, but this winter I have been suffering quite a bit. The non-greasy formula absorbs into the skin quickly, so you're not left with that sticky feeling you can get with a lot of hand creams. It leaves my hands feeling soft and hydrated for a long time, and smells divine too. I've tried a few hand creams in the past but it's this little lovely that I've always come back to and I always have one with me - I have a larger tube at home in my bathroom and one of the travel sizes in my handbag!

3. Smoothie Star Breakfast Scrub I won't rave on about this one too much, as I've already done a whole blog post, which you can see here. All I will say is it smells amazing (like pancakes with syrup!), and leaves my skin feeling amazing too. Best. Scrub. Ever.

4. Smoothie Star Body Milk This is a product I tend to pair with the Breakfast Scrub. Although they are from the same Smoothie Star range, to me the products are not very similar in scent, though this one is still lovely and sweet. The consistency of this product is not as thick as a body butter, so it absorbs into the skin a lot quicker, which is great for me when I have a shower in a rush in the mornings! Although not as thick, it still leaves my skin very hydrated like the S&G butters do, and doesn't leave a greasy feeling on the skin. Plus, their 500ml bottles last ages, so they're great value for money too!

5. Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Nudist I haven't ventured that much into S&G's makeup range - I really must do. One of the products I have bought and loved from their range though is their Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Sticks. I have a couple of them, but my most used shade is Nudist, which is a sheer peachy nude colour. This is a perfect everyday shade and, because they come in a pencil form, they are easy to just slap on and go. As they are a gloss, they do give a slight shine to your lips, but nothing too over the top, and they are not sticky either. I sometimes like to wear this one over the top of a lipstick just to add a bit of shine to it, or on it's own for a very subtle hint of colour.

Have you tried any of my top 5? What are you favourite Soap & Glory products?

  6. S&G is one of my favourite brands ever and ever. I adore their Fruit Punch shower scrub as well as the No Clogs Allowed facial mask and Hand Food, the eternal classic.
