As a self confessed Soap and Glory addict, I have noticed the new additions to their ever-expanding range then quickly picked up my old favourites and dashed to the till. What can I say, I'm a creature of habit!
I was therefore excited, but dubious, to finally try out The Breakfast Scrub that arrived in my Pink Big. If only to see how it fared against my all time favourite, Flake Away...
The Breakfast Scrub
300ml - £9.25
As soon as you unscrew the lid to this product, you can see where the name comes from...I defy you to not crave pancakes and maple syrup when you smell this!
The domed tub, with the classic S&G design we've all come to know and love, is packed with golden sugar particles; banana, almond and honey extracts; shea butter and gentle oatmeal grains. It really does smell good enough to eat (not advisable..).
These ingredients combine to form a scrub that is harsh enough to provide a great exfoliation but is gentle enough not to leave your skin red raw. I think this lies with the oatmeal grains that are large enough to buff your skin but in a soft way.
My skin was left touchably soft from the exfoliation with a very slight sheen thanks to the shea butter and scented beautifully from the maple syrup fragrance - a solid 10/10!
300ml - £6.64
Having gone through numerous tubs of this scrub, I knew to expect the classic Soap and Glory fragrance with this scrub. Pretty, floral, girly...it's pretty good!
However, as soon as I started scrubbing with it I realised it is a lot harsher than the Breakfast Scrub due to the large grains of rock salt. Some may like this - and I do when I need to get rid of stubborn fake tan - but compared to the gentle Breakfast Scrub it was a bit of a shock.
My skin however did thank me for it and was left super soft and also with a gentle sheen, much like its counterpart.
Ooh this is a tough one - picking a body scrub is of course very important in the grand scheme of things..!
It's a tie I think!
The Breakfast Scrub is fantastic for a gentle regular body polish. The scent definitely wins me over.
Flake Away still holds a place in my heart for tanning - either prepping the skin or getting rid of the old stuff.
What are you opinions on these? Do you have a firm favourite or is their place for both of them in your bathroom?!
