Review: Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub
Body scrubs are not something I buy in abundance. They've just never caught my eye, I seem to spend more money on products like body butters and moisturisers to slather myself in, although I have always used face scrubs. Recently, however, I have found myself getting quite dry skin, mainly on my legs and arms, despite moisturising on a regular basis. As well as this, my skin has just been looking, well, a bit dull. It's summer for goodness sake (not that the sun is cooperating.) My skin is not meant to be dull during summer, it should be bronzed and glowing. Alright, maybe not bronzed, I don't tan at the best of times, and considering I've not been sunning myself abroad this year, I don't expect miracles. I do expect a bit of a glow during summer though, which I'm just not getting. So I set about on a mission to find a body scrub, after reading that they revitalize by removing dead skin and generally making it softer.
I headed straight to the Soap and Glory section in my local Boots - despite not using loads of their products in the past, they always get good reviews and I like the quirky packaging.
Sugar Crush immediately stood out to me amongst the other scrubs. It claims to smell like 'brown sugar, sweet lime, almond oil and macadamia, and it does. It's a very strong, sweet scent, that may be overpowering for some, but I personally love.
I like my scrubs to be grainy, I find they exfoliate my skin better and I end up much softer, so this scrub is good for that. It's not abrasive enough to cause any pain or discomfort, but is grainy enough to remove all dead skin and leave my skin much softer.
I really like this scrub, it does the job, and makes my skin feel much better than before.
A 300ml tub costs £8, which I think is a reasonable price, and should last a long time if you follow the instructions of using it two to three times a week.
