The Breakfast Scrub - Review!

Hey Beauts,

Now if you read my last post you will have discovered that I have only just gotten on the whole soap and glory bandwagon and I think this comes from years of asking my mummabear to get be something from this range and her reply always being that it's too expensive. That being said, I believe these thoughts have lodged into my brain and this is what I've naturally thought about Soap & Glory. A couple of weeks ago in boots, I finally bit the bullet and purchases this (RRP £8), Hand Food (RRP: £5) and Sugar Crush body wash (RRP: £6.50) as the Boots 3 for 2 deal on all Soap and Glory got me - finally!
To me the product looks amazing. I know it's brown but the flecks in it add a bit of depth to the product so it isn't just a dull brown. The pink and brown go great together as colours and they compliment each other massively, especially with the circus-esque theme that pretty much all Soap & Glory packaging goes for. I've seen in other reviews of this product that the container was curved towards the bottom but they must have changed the packaging slightly as this just has the bog-standard straight edged 90 degree bottom container. I'm not complaining too much. It doesn't look as great or as feminine but it stacks easier which is good for someone with not a lot of free space. 

Moving on to the smell. Oh my. Oh my, oh my! The scent of this is incredible! When I picked this up in Boots and saw that it was called 'The Breakfast Scrub' I thought 'I wonder what sausage, egg and bacon smell like in scrub form' Literally thinking that it would smell like a full English breakfast. I didn't for one second think about American breakfasts such as pancakes and maple syrup! But that's exactly what it does smell like - vanilla pancakes with maple syrup, freshly cooked and good enough to eat! Although, I really don't recommend eating this stuff, It doesn't taste that good...

So after all the hype of the smell, and just melting because of it all over Boots' floor, I'll move on to the consistency.
One of the best things about this product is the consistency. It's so thick and lovely that when it's in your hand or rubbed onto your skin, It stays there because of the thick formulation. It doesn't slide off like other scrubs or fall out of your hands and waste away down the plug hole. It stays where you want it to and does it's job. A bit like a breakfast. Now it has quite a thick/rough exfoliating feel to it when applied to the skin. But personally, I like that because I feel as though the product is doing it's job and actually tearing away my dead skin, without tearing my leg off - obviously. Adding to that, the moisturising properties are great! My skin feels so soft and nourished after using this product although I do like to follow this product with the 'Clean On Me Creamy, Clarifying shower gel' just to feel that extra bit pampered and the scents go lovely together! 

So thats that for this review! I hope you enjoyed it! Have you tried The Breakfast Scrub? What were your opinions? And is there anything else from Soap & Glory that I simply must try out?

  2. It's strange because I've always just had in my head that Soap and Glory products were expensive for what they were too. Glad to hear you had such a great experience with it though! I'd love to hear your thoughts on the Body Butter. Personally that is how I judge a skin care range is by how good the body butter is. Maybe that is just one of my quirks, haha. Lovely post :)
