For Christmas this year my mum really amazingly got me THE NEXT BIG THING by Soap and Glory. It's a limited edition box designed by Hattie Stewart and includes 11 full size products worth over £75 for only £29! I have never purchased anything from soap and glory except a few skincare items I have been sent in the past so was really excited to start trying everything!
Here's an overview of everything in the box, some really amazing products and I have finally given everything a go so I can give you my opinions! If you'd like to see a review of each product, keep reading.
I used this for the first time the other night whilst in the bath, and got a total surprise at the texture, it was totally not what I was expecting. It felt almost like... marshmellow but with small grains in! It was really fun to use and smells amazing! I used it on my legs before shaving and it left them super soft and also helped to shave better! I have to say this is much better then I was expecting, and the marshmellow texture helps to keep it together when you use it rather then bits of sugar falling all over the place.
I bought a mini Righteous Butter in the Boots sales and already started loving it before I got this gift from my mum. It's for very dry skin, which I do have on my ankles, knees and elbows. I have been using it nightly and have noticed a real difference to the texture and softness of my skin.
This is the product I've used the least but only because I have so many other products to use! I like that it comes with a pump as then you can easily get out how much you want without having to pivk it up and get lotion everywhere. It's just the right conistancy so that it sinks into your skin quickly and leaves your skin hydrated due to the Shea Butter, Orange waterjuice, Fig extract, Almomd, Mango and Morgina oils! It's a really lovely daily lotion that I think I will use a lot more in the summer months!
I have kept this in the shower since the day I got it and use it every time. It has a seriously zesty fragrance (that I just found out they actually sell AS a fragrance!) and lathers up within seconds to give your body a full cleanse and clean. It also works great with loofas. I think this is a product I would definitely repurchase as it leaves your skin feeling really fresh and it just smells so good!
I love a good hand cream, I have a little beauty station set up on my bedside table with all my essentials in and hand cream is always in there. This one is a little big for that station but it's perfect for handbags and it works really well! If you get dry knuckles in winter this is a dream product to make your skin super soft. As it mentions on the tube is fast absorbing so you don't have to wave your hands around waiting for it to sink in!
At first, the idea of using this cave me the creeps. I don't find rubbing lotion into my feet particularly pleasing haha but I decided to buck up and use it! I applied some to each foot and then put some socks on before hopping into bed. It was only half an hour later that I had to take the socks back off, I just couldn't sleep with socks on! But in the morning my feet were actually much softer and my heels less dry It recommends you use it daily but I haven't gotten round to using it again since then. Again I think I might leave this until summer when you want to have beach feet!
This is another product that I have kept in my shower since I got it. If you've used the Dove In Shower Moistureiser, this is much like that. After I have used the Orangeasm Body Wash I use this it's a great way to add moisture to the skin without having to wait 5 minutes to get dressed once you've got out! Basically a lifesaver and one that I would repurchase!
Face wipes aren't the most exciting but these are really nice quality! I have used three from the pack and they do a really good job at removing make up and even mascara (though I would still wash my face properly) I mainly use face wipes to wipe swatches off my hands or if I've decided my make up looks awful and want to start again! They're nothing AMAZING, but they are pretty good!
