Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub | Review


Is it just me or does the name of this product make anyone else think of the game Candy Crush? Anyway, I've had this scrub for a while now and thought it was about time I shared my thoughts on it. I've already tried Soap and Glory's The Breakfast Scrub and Flake Away but this is my favourite of them all. It's now my go-to body scrub.

The Claim -
'Super scrub with smashed brown sugar and sweet lime, almond oil & macadamia grains.'

Packaging -
As always, the packaging of this product features the typical light pink of Soap and Glory products. The lid fits onto the products securely so it is fine to travel with. The tub is also plastic so it's not going disintegrate in the bath or shower.

You also get quite a lot of product. You get 300ml and this will last you for ages. I use this quite a lot and you can see I've still got loads left. So you get your money's worth with this scrub.

Smell -
This does have a very strong scent, so if you're not keen on scented products this may not be for you. However, I really love this scent and it is one of my favourite things about the product. It's a very sweet, sugary scent with a tiny hint of citrus (from the lime).

Application -
I love the way that this applies to the skin. It's a bit thinner than some body scrubs with smaller grains which I like as I find it easier to work into smaller areas. This exfoliates my skin really well and leaves me with a very smooth finish. The scrub is great for tackling really dry skin but this does mean that it can be a little too harsh on the skin if you are too rough. I also love that because the product has a thinner texture it doesn't feel so rich on my skin. Once you wash away any excess you may have the product feels like it has sunk into the skin, which is something I personally like. I don't like it when you apply a product and it takes ages to sink into the skin.

Also, make sure not to get water inside the product. I've done this with another one of their scrubs and it makes the product become really thick and less pleasant to use.

Availability and Pricing -
Soap & Glory Sugar Crush is £8 and available from Soap & Glory.

I really recommend this product to anyone who is a fan of Soap & Glory Products and is looking for a new body scrub.
