Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Scrub

For Christmas I was a very lucky girl and got the Soap & Glory Big Pink Tote bag, which was packed with goodies. So I thought I would review one of the exfoliating scrubs. I decided to try Flake Away which is described as "Skin smoothing spa body polish with Shea Butter, sweet almond oil, peach seed powder, sea salt and sugar".

So the scrub looks like sticky sand, but smells of almondy sweets I would say is smells girly. My other half actually commented on how nice I smelt after I used it so that is also a plus point. Its quite hard to say what the amount you should use as it all depends on what area you are using it on, but for a leg I would say a generous scoop. The grains in the scrub are not too rough and slowly dissappear as it is rubbed in.

 Gwyneth Paltrow must have tried it too.
The scrub did exfoliate my skin really well it did not feel to rough, but it felt like it was actually working. On the instructions it says you should rinse well and this is not suggestion. It left a greasy film on my skin and I assume it is just the almond oil, but it was not really a nice feeling. I did managed to get the film off my skin and it did feel smooth and soft to touch.

Overall the scrub works well to soften the skin while it exfoliates, but the sticky greasy residue means I cannot recommend this product.

If you really want to try this product for yourself Soap & Glory Flake Away is available from Boots and ASOS for £6.65.
