Fab Five Friday: Soap & Glory Faves!

Fab Five Soap & Glory Faves!

Soap & Glory is a British beauty brand, founded in 2006 by Marcia Kilgore, the genius behind Bliss Spa. I love that she has incorporated not only her vast beauty knowledge and experience in the field into Soap & Glory, the line is full of fun, funny cheekiness {the name of the first product launched is Sexy Mother Pucker-a lip plumping lip gloss} that is bound to instantly put a smile on your face. And who doesn't look AND feel better with a smile on their face!?!

My first experience with the brand was the  Soap & Glory Cream And Soaper Duo {which I reviewed here}-I love that set so much, I repurchased it after the set I was sent to review was gone. I have to wash my hands a lot, and often times I forget to put on hand lotion afterwards, so my hands, nails, and cuticles suffer. This duo makes it so convenient to wash my hands and immediately put on lotion-my hands have never looked {or felt} better! Plus it smells awesome {though I've heard some people say the Hand Food smells like marshmallows and I don't get that at all}. The soap is not harsh or drying and the lotion is effective while soaking in quickly and without leaving a greasy residue. 

Recently I received the newest incarnation of the original Sexy Mother Pucker, the Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick to review. It comes in three shades: Plum JamFuchsia Ristic {the shades I was able to sample}, and Nudist {the shade I have to go out and get since I love the first two SOOO MUCH!}. The colors are universally flattering, and apply so smooth, glossy, and sheer. They're prefect for throwing into a clutch for date night or GNO, or your pocket so you can try and keep up appearances while running errands with the kids.

The Gloss Sticks swatched on my forearm: both photos have Plum Jam on the left and Fuchsia-Ristic on the right. The left picture was taken with natural lighting and the right with flash . 

I also recently received  Soap & Glory Super Sit Tight™ Intense XS Special Super-Strength Body Firming Serum. Since I'm working on losing weight and getting my body right, I was super excited to try this out! I'm not gonna lie, I haven't been using it long enough to see results, BUT I love the slightly tingling sensation I feel when I use it {makes me feel like it's working}, and the fact that it was designed to work harder when you're sitting down {I'm at my computer A LOT so that's a big deal for me}! Plus it's reasonably priced at $38 AND it was just featured in a segment on E! !

So impressed was I by the products that I've been so graciously sent to review, I felt compelled to go out and purchase some goodies I was curious about! My first purchase was another lip product, because as I have so candidly shared, I am OBSESSED with lip balms. Soap & Glory A Great Kisses Lip Moisture Balm practically has my name written all over it; between its pretty coral tint, ingredients like mango butter and apricot berry, and a yummy peach flavor-I was in love at hello!

But why stop there! I also scooped up Soap & Glory Clean On Me Creamy Moisture Shower Gel . I'm gonna be real and confess that I may also have a massive shower gel collection as well {I like to smell good and I like to be clean, so sue me!}, so I had to give this luscious cream gel a try. It's scented with Soap & Glory's signature Pink Fragrance and it is utterly delightful. It lathers up so well and leaves my skin feeling clean but not tight and itchy like soap sometimes can.

So those are my Soap & Glory Favorites so far, but I'm definitely going back for more! In fact, I've already put together a wishlist of goodies to add to my collection {I'll probably share it some time next week}. Until then...

  1. This brand is on my "to try" list. I was happy when our local Shoppers Drug Mart stores got their products.

  2. I just love almost everything from this brand! And I am very picky about products like these, but somehow everything they make really works for me. I have no idea why, but why complain, right?


I love to hear from you, so leave a comment, question, or suggestion and stay tuned because I WILL respond! xoxo...
