Soap & Glory – Clean On Me – Scrub Of Your Life – Review

Uncategorized November 10, 2017

Hello, my darlings,

I have been using Soap and Glory products since I saw the products at Target about a year or so ago. I feel like I have tested so many of their products since then and I have loved (almost) all of them. Today, I’m going to be touching on two products which I have been using over the last month or so and have come to a conclusion about how I feel about them.

Okay, so the first product I’ll be talking about is Clean On Me, which is a body wash which has the consistency of a lotion. The first thing I noticed was this body wash comes with a ton of product. It contains 16.2 FL OZ which for the price (around $12) is a wonderful deal in my opinion. The bottle suggests that you turn off the shower before use so it doesn’t go straight down the drain but I simply put this on a loofa or washcloth and it lathers up quite nicely and you do not need much product to make it lather. The smell of this product is their famous “pink” smell, which to me is very hard to describe, it’s almost like a cologne yet it is feminine and floral. One thing I love about Soap & Glory products is the fact that you can smell the fragrance on your body long after you have showered and it holds true with this shower gel as well. I feel like this product also, because of it being a lotion consistency, does provide extra moisture to the skin and that is one of the claims on the bottle. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a new body wash, and I will repurchase.

For The Scrub Of Your Life, I feel like I have finally found the perfect exfoliator and I am not just saying this because I love Soap and Glory. The scrub of your life is not a deep exfoliator, it is more of an everyday type of product you can use in the shower in your routine. This scrub is more of a combination of a scrub and a body wash. The Scrub of Your Life has soft beads in it that lather up with the gel and provide a light textured gradient against the skin that actually helps with dry skin and even (I believe) has helped (in combination with other products) with my stretch marks. I love this, and I am glad I have found something I can use every day that also doesn’t need too much product to work and it comes with 6.7 FL OZ so it’s quite a bit! The smell is almost identical to the Clean On Me and I like pairing the two together to keep the scent going — and spraying some of their “Pink” body spray.  I will most definitely repurchase this.

Walgreens carries Soap and Glory now and almost always has their products on buy two get one free so if you are looking for a good deal, you can always go there to purchase.

Let me know in the comments if you have tried any Soap and Glory products and if so, what your favorites are! I’m always looking for new ones.

If you are interested, I can do a “What I keep in my shower” post, or even a video maybe? ❤

Hope you’re all having a great day,

Julie

My Choices for Fall Perfumes

Uncategorized November 5, 2017

 

Happy Sunday, darlings!

If you couldn’t tell, Fall is my favorite season. It has the perfect weather, foods, and activities that certainly make it easy to love. Another reason I adore fall is that it means that richer and sweeter scents are on the market. In this post, I will talk about four of my favorite fall time perfumes or body sprays that I have been using this season so far.

Zum Mist: with Frankincense & Myrrh.  I am a huge fan of essential oils so when I saw this at Target I had to grab it. I am very fond of the smell of Frankincense and together with Myrrh, it is exactly as it is described: dreamy and woodsy. It is a scent which will last almost all day, and can also be used as a room spray. This scent is difficult to describe because it is purely two essential oils mixed together but I urge you to smell this one if you see it in store.

Viktor & Rolf: Flower Bomb. Now, this is a perfume, which makes it a lot more fragrant and has a longer lasting power. Flower bomb is a warm floral scent is how I would personally describe it. According to their website, it is described as a feminine, fresh, floral. I love this for the fall because it is so heavy and continues to last throughout the day but it is not potent or nauseating as some can be.

Bath&Body: Salted Caramel Apricot. Salted caramel apricot is the epitome of fall scents. This is a warm, fuzzy, sweet scent which reminds me of fall treats baking in the oven. If they do not have this seasonal scent next year I will be super disappointed because this particular fragrance has made me feel warm and cozy every time I put it on. The smell is exactly what it sounds like, warm caramel with an apricot underlying scent. Run to Bath & Body,  you won’t regret it!

Calvin Klein: CK2. CK2 is a different type of fragrance. The best way I can describe it is peppery yet fresh. It is a gender neutral fragrance which I totally believe is true. I honestly think it leans more on the masculine side of fragrance but that may just be because of my other personal choices in fragrance. According to the website, this is a fresh, warm, and electric type of fragrance. This fragrance will definitely get you compliments! It is very unique and I am glad it is part of my collection.

It was truly hard to pick my favorite fall time scents but these were the few I have been reaching for lately!

Leave a comment and tell me your favorite fall fragrance! I’d love that!
