The Best Affordable Body Scrubs From Soap & Glory

A few weeks ago, I ran out of body scrub so I turned to Twitter and asked which body scrub I should buy next. I had been using Soap&Glory Smoothie Star Breakfast Scrub and although I love it, I wondered if there was a better one that the beauty fans of Twitter could recommend me. I got lots of recommendations and the majority of you suggest Sugar Crush, another scrub from the Soap&Glory range.

I've been waiting for the Boots 3 for 2 mix and match offers so that I could treat myself to something else. I went in last week and I ended up buying three body scrubs (no regrets!). The ones I purchased were my ol' favourite Smoothie Star Breakfast Scrub, Sugar Crush as recommended by Twitter, and another one that I've used before, Flake Away. 

The thing with products like scrubs and exfoliators is that once you've started using them, you feel like you need them in your routine all the time. It's almost like an addiction! As soon as I got home from Boots, I jumped in the shower and used a bit of all three to test which one I like the best! They all come in a 300ml tub and they're all different in their own little way.

Soap&Glory Sugar Crush review

This contains brown sugar, macadamia grains, almond oil and sweet lime. You guys were right...Sugar Crush is such a nice scrub and the fresh zingy lime fragrance makes it smell just like Starburst sweets! 

With each scoop, you do get a good amount of "grains" and they are quite gritty but the sugar starts to melts as soon as you apply this to wet skin. lt's quite smooth for a scrub, not too rough on the skin, and it's moisturising too. I love the smell of this one, it's lovely!

This is my third tub of this, it is one that I seem to go back to! The gooey, thick formula is made up of organic cupuacu bio scrubs, banana, honey, oat, sugar, shea and almonds. If there was one Soap&Glory product that I would recommend, it would be this one. 

The smell is divine, it's smells like a syrup-y cupcake, so this one's for you like sweet scents. The grains in this one is more abrasive than Sugar Crush but don't worry, it isn't uncomfortable or scratchy. If you have rough skin in areas like knees and elbows, then this one's for you! I personally prefer rougher and densely packed particles so I'm a fan of this scrub!

The particles are smaller in this one and not as harsh, and the idea is to grab a scoop of it and rub in to the skin until the grains are gone. It's a "superhero-strength" scrub which buffs and polishes your skin. This one contains shea butter, sweet almond oil, sea salt, sugar and peach seed powder.

With shea butter and almond oil in it, this one is the most moisturising. It leaves your skin feeling smooth for days! If you don't like over powering smells, which the other two that I've mentioned are, then I would suggest trying Flake Away. It smells floral and fruity - you get exactly what you would expect. This is my second tub of this and I use it every other day on the top of my arms to keep the small pimples away.

  2. I love Breakfast Scrub - it smells good enough to eat. I like Sugar Crush too, but Breakfast Scrub is my favourite - and I prefer the rougher particles in it too. xo

  3. I do love Soap and Glory. Sometimes I buy their product just from the look of it even though I might not need it. I've used the Flake Away for the face but not the body ones. I got a diferent brand body scrub for xmas and really felt the different after using it so will def be trying these ones out
    Will pop over to boots and hopefully they still got the 3 for 2 going.


  4. The Soap and Glory body scrubs are amazing for the price! They smell delicious too xx

  19. gorgeous piccies Sarah. I love soap and Glory scents, I have the rich and foamous shower cream and it is AMAZING! x

  20. Soap and Glory truly do the best scrubs. I have a Body Shop one I'm using at the moment but doesn't match up. I think I might follow your lead and use the 3 for 2 to stock up.


  21. Ooo, I love S&G body scrubs and they're a lot cheaper than my HG Clinique Sparkle Skin Exfoliator.

  22. I love Soap & Glory, though to be honest, probably as much for the packaging as anything, It looks so vintage & lovely. I love their Hand Food hand cream :)

  23. Soap & Glory is one of those brands I always wanted to test, sadly it isn't sold here in Portugal so my experience never passed by staring at their gorgeous packaging! everything looks so freaking amazing, too bad we're not lucky enough to have it here! :(
