I want to start off by apologising that this post is being published a day later than I had planned: the reason for this being I switched routers yesterday and with it going live it meant my internet connection was extremely patchy, and crashing every few minutes. This meant that to my frustration, I couldn’t load WordPress or most other websites, so I had to put things on hold while it settled down.
Now that my internet seems to be more stable, I am going to review the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Fresh & Foamy Body Wash. I don’t really talk about body care products very often, and the reason for that mostly comes down to the fact that they take so long to use up and my body is much harder for me to judge the results of products on because I simply cannot see my body as easily as I can judge my face. However, I finished this product back in January, and while I was hoping to write up a January Empties type of post, it was the only product that month I actually used up. The big bottle however has been sat in a basket taking up a lot of space and so I’m actually sitting down and writing about it now.
So what is this? Well, as the name implies, it’s a body wash and for £6.00 for 500ml of product, this is what really caught my eye. I don’t really make a lot of fuss over body products, but I have heard people say wonderful things about this line, so I decided to buy it.
The product uses a pump dispenser which is great for in-shower use, since it avoids getting water inside the bottle. The large bottle is great for value, although as you would expect, makes it less ideal for travel. However, I wasn’t concerned about this since I do not travel often.
The body wash itself is creamy texture, and lathers up slightly when you rub it over the skin. I didn’t find it to be too creamy, and I didn’t feel like I wasn’t able to wash it all off when I was in the shower. The body wash does have a strong citrus scent which I wasn’t a huge fan of, but that does come down to personal preference. The scent doesn’t cling for too long after you wash it off, so if like myself you don’t like the scent, or if you want to be able to wear perfume later in the day, then it won’t contrast with any other fragrances.
It’s not a fun fact to admit about my body, but I do struggle with body acne, and I can’t say I saw a huge difference in this product impacting the condition of my skin in that regard. However, I don’t fault the product for this since I’m mildly confident that my body acne is mostly caused by dehydration at this point and my hygiene is in balance.
Do I like this product? Yes, I am currently using a different body wash from the same line with a different scent which when I’ve used it some more I will also review. Would I buy this again? This specific body wash, no. I can say I prefer the scent of the other body wash so if I could only choose between the two I would choose the one I’m currently using, rather than this one. Is it a bad product? No, for the price you pay and for how much, you get a generous amount of product, and for a brand that sometimes markets itself towards the higher price point end of the high street or drugstore brand bracket, this is definitely a great price. And by that, I’m referring more specifically to their makeup.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post. I will have another post up either tomorrow or Saturday. I hope you’re having a wonderful day and if you have any thoughts or questions, I would love to read about them.
