Land of Soap & Glory

I have to admit, I was a Soap and Glory virgin until a friend suggested I try Soap and Glory's 'Flakeaway'.

I absolutely blinkin' loved it! Flakeaway is now one of my all-time favourite products. Scrubbing your legs with this before
shaving them gives you an extremely close shave and baby soft skin and the smell is just divine!

In Boots recently, I bought 6 of their products (and only paid for 4). No, I wasn't shoplifting, they were on a 3 for 2 offer, yeehah! As I was on a bit of beauty product trolley dash, I walked away with a slight Liam Gallagher swagger, not 'cos I'm cool, 'cos my 2 carrier bags were so so heavy!

Naturally, I topped up my 'Flakeaway' supply, but will give you a very quick run down of the other products I bought and what I thought of them.

Dr Spot: Unfortunately, so far this hasn't done much for the recent spotty antics on my face, although I will keep trying it.

Wish Upon a Jar, 21 Day Collagen Overhaul Cream: This is gorgeous! It says to only use for 21 days (not quite sure why that is) but I'd consider using it long term. My face feels slightly plumper, I love's it I do.

Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser: Probably my favourite product from this particular haul. Deep cleanses your skin, leaving my face feeling light and totally refreshed.

Hair Supply Conditioner: Well, my hair's not digging this one, it smells lush, but it's not for me.

Hand Food Hand Cream:
A huge tube of this is £4.50 which I think is excellent value, it's a great everyday hand cream with the same delicious smell – I have to stop myself from licking my hands all day!

I'm trying a new format for the blog to make it easier for me to find new content each day, so it will be mixed up with fashion, how to's, beauty, home style, recipe's and of course some of my 'randoms'. Hope you likey. x

Oh I do love soap and glory! I am currently swearing by their glow lotion for the face. The name escapes me right now but it is the shit.

I am an Olay girl - but only buy it when its half price. Glad to see you are back!

Shaving soap said...

I would say that one should prepare the facial skin first before shaving. Shaving soaps and shaving creams for specific skin types have been available for a number of years now. However, before choosing what products to use on your face and body, people should start with the basic issue and that is to know their specific skin type.
