If there’s one part of my skincare I’m sure my family is getting use out of, it’s my Soap & Glory Peaches and Clean Cleanser. It’s one of the few skincare items I don’t keep in my bedroom, and along with my current face scrub (the St Ives Olive Facial Scrub, which I plan on reviewing soon), the contents are disappearing faster than I can keep up with. I definitely don’t use a lot of product at a time if I can, so I think my purchase from a few months ago is proving popular. I bought this from Boots for about £6.00 when they were having a sale on Soap & Glory skincare. From what I understand they’ve changed the product since then, so I’ll link the Soap & Glory Peaches and Clean Cleansing Milk here.
What attracted me to the product was the watery/creamy texture. While many posts exist online that discourage people with oily skin using creamy or milky cleansers, for some reason I thought to myself “screw it” and decided to try it anyway. Sometimes I wonder if we’re too prescriptive in the way we handle skincare, since everyone’s skin is so different, so I decided to break away from the norm a bit. I really like how smoothly and easily it spreads over the skin, although if I try using this when I’m not showering I find myself paranoid about whether I washed it all off. But primarily I use this in the shower and haven’t had issues with not washing all of it off.
The bottle and dispenser are also great for keeping in the bathroom as it has a pump mechanism. From experience, it hasn’t been too stiff to pump, and each pump dispenses about a palm full. Personally, I like to use about half a pump’s worth for my entire face and find this is more than enough. As far as cleansing power goes, it does a great job of washing away any excess face scrub or masks, but I can’t boast that it cleans out my pores (cause let’s face it… That’s expecting too much really). It does make my skin feel clean and soft, and not overcleansed – thankfully rubbing a finger over my skin doesn’t make my skin actually squeak!
Overall, I like this product. It does what I need it to do, and although I don’t think they sell this version of the product anymore, I am curious to see if their new Cleansing Milk (which is maybe the same thing but in a bigger bottle) can meet or beat those standards.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post. It really means the world to me.
