It’s been a while since I talked about body scrubs, the last time I did was in this article about a Cowshed and a Rainpharma scrub which I both liked for different reasons. Since then I’ve tried a few others scrubs and I’m reviewing 2 of them today!
I love Soap & Glory: it’s fun, whimsical, and great value for money. I can’t even remember when I bought it, but I decided to try the Sugar Crush Body Scrub, undoubtedly because I loved Rainpharma’s Sugar Scrub so much and tried to recreate the magic.
Unfortunately, it didn’t quite work out that way. The scent of the scrub is all lime which makes it very fresh and invigorating: great. The problem for me was the texture. The scrub particles were quite chunky but too sparse in my opinion, it requires an effort to scrub with this texture.
I was a little bummed out, it was the first scrub I didn’t like and the first Soap & Glory product I didn’t like. If this texture appeals to you and you’re not afraid of the powerful scent, you should take a look at it.
Onwards and upwards with Rituals‘ Mandi Lulur Body Scrub. My love for this scent has been declared in this Empties post that featured the Bath Foam of the same range. Just to remind you of the awesomeness: Frangipani and Rice Milk and all the heart-eyed emojis, yes! It’s a beautifully relaxing scent, why oh why was this limited edition…
How about the texture? This one is right up my alley: tiny scrubby bits packed together super densely in the perfect texture. It’s effortless and highly efficient: love! I hope the textures of all Rituals Body Scrubs are the same, I will definitely check out the permanent range when I’m out of scrubs.
A bit of a miss and a huge hit: not bad, right?!
