Review and Ideas: Soap and Glory Breakfast Scrub

Soap and Glory Breakfast Scrub RRP £9.50

Hey fellow beauties, If you're looking for a great sugar scrub to exfoliate dry areas such as knees or elbows, this is what you need. I was recently sent this as a present from family In Greece, so thanks to them, I have super soft skin that is now addicted to a tri-weekly dose of Maple syrup sugar scrub.

This pure sugar scrub contains Golden Sugar scrub particles, Organic cupuacu bio scrubs, oatmeal grains, banana,almond and honey extracts, shea butter and glycerin. (Almost making it edible). The packaging is really noticeable and the pot of grainy caramel coloured substance looks good enough to eat. But please don't! That would be a waste.The smell is the first thing I noticed, a very potent Maple syrpup flavour which is very satisfying to apply to the body! The texture of the scrub is quite thick, almost the consistency of porridge but with extra grains of sugar. I found the tub a little hard to open when my hands were already wet so I have made a mental note to open the tub before getting soaked! 

The grains do a good job without irritating the skin and leaving it red or raised like a lot of scrubs I've used in the past. I used to think ' the redder the better' well, I couldn't have been more wrong, a good product will do a good job without taking a layer of your skin. I did find my skin was a little dry after using this but with everyday moisturising, the scrub works to exfoliate the dead skin cells and leaves a healthy shine behind.

Using it is really easy peasy, just scoop a little bit into your hands, rub into your palms and then scrub the area of your body in a circular motion! Rubbing in circular motions will encourage blood flow to the area for healthy circulation. 

This scrub may seem a little expensive for £9.50 but if you use it a couple of times a week, It will last you around six months. And that is six months of pure goodness. The scrub leaves a lingering maple syrup smell on your body and leaves you feeling fresh as a daisy. 

Favourite product of the month!!
