Soap & Glory Double Whammy

A couple of Soap & Glory products to think about today:

S&G Smooch operator

Firstly, there’s the Smooch Operator lip butter balm – I’m using this in the bathroom as I can’t do without a lip balm of some kind in the bathroom, even though I always carry one in my handbag anyway. I had high hopes of this, and it’s quite good, especially the lovely coconut smell which is really nice. However, it’s actually hard to use as the balm is so solid that it takes several finger-swipes to get the dang stuff out of the pot. Also, whilst swiping, half of it gets up my nail anyway so I have to dig it out if I want to use it. Yuk!

The other thing is that you can’t just swipe and go – and believe me I’m a girl who absolutely has to swipe and go with my lip balm as I don’t like hanging around. However, it takes at least three attempts to get a decent amount of the balm on your lips so it’s not a product that saves time. I won’t be buying it again. But if you want to have a go, you can get it at Boots here for £5.00 .

S&G Puffy Eye Gel

On the other hand the S&G puffy eye attack eye gel is simply BRILLIANT. BRILLIANT, I tell you! I’m the first to admit it’s not the prettiest colour, being a kind of off-white – though that might be the shadows in the bedroom, LOL! But it’s totally amazing in getting rid of puffiness and bags, and after I have this on, I look about 10 years younger – or at least my eyes do. Since wearing it, nobody at work has remarked how tired I look, which they usually do on a fairly regular basis – so that’s a total plus point for me.

So I’m seriously hooked on this and I will definitely be buying it again. You can find it at Boots for £12.50. I admit this is pricy, but at the moment there’s a Buy-One-Get-One-At-Half-Price offer on Soap & Glory stuff at Boots, so definitely worth a look. Indeed, rush now to kick that puffiness into touch!

Have a great Sunday.

Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter

The Righteous Butter

I bought this at Boots Online as I was looking for a decent body cream for my sensitive skin that doesn’t dry it out or cause spots. I have to say this cream is simply brilliant – and definitely far better than I hoped it would be. The smell is nicely subtle and it feels fabulous when you rub it on. It contains the ever-reliable aloe vera so is very moisturising and I love it.

One added bonus is that it comes in a tub so you can be sure of using it all up as I really do resent tubes where you can never get all the product out – grrr! Sorry – that’s a pet hate of mine, but no issues here, LOL!

Soap & Glory Hand Products


I picked up a set of Soap & Glory hand creams at Boots Online recently as I was trying to see if there was anything other than my usual Neutrogena hand cream (which does get a bit boring due to the lack of smell). I get very cold hands and they get quite red raw if I go outside in Winter (or Spring or Autumn) without gloves.

So I started using the Hand Food one first at night to see how I got on. It’s billed as having an ‘original pink fragrance’ which is interesting (does pink have a smell?) but the scent is very girly and slightly 1950s – though I suspect it will probably appeal more to the teenage market it’s aimed for. The cream itself is quite good and non-greasy which is great. My hands have been fine in the morning when I get up, but I have to admit I may not purchase another tube unless it’s on special offer, mainly due to the smell.

Then, more recently, I’ve started using the Hand Dream one for the day, and really I prefer this one – the smell is far more adult, and it still has that same non-greasy but protective feel. It lasts throughout the day too and I didn’t have to reapply very much. As a change to Neutrogena, I would definitely buy this one again.
