We all know that it’s not Christmas until we see certain things. The Coca Cola Christmas advert, the light switch on in your home town and the Boots Soap & Glory Star Gift. Well, it’s officially Christmas as the Star Gift has hit the sales floor and this year, it’s even bigger and better than ever. Featuring a whopping £78 worth of products, it was on sale for £60 and is now just £30 until the end of day on Thursday. If you haven’t yet popped out to buy it, then what are you waiting for?
The Soap & Glory Spa of Wonder set has been pimped up this year, with it’s pretty awesome holographic fronted box. Unlike previous years where the outer packaging has been a sturdier vanity bag, or like last years mini suitcase, this years box is still a collectable but it’s not going to very good for transporting it around. However, it’s about the contents and that’s the main point of this set – to stock up for the following year with our favourite S&G goodies.
Inside the box, there are ten full sized products and although they aren’t too dissimilar from previous years, there are some new items as well as the iconic favourites that we expect from Soap & Glory. For the shower, my favourite Clean on Me Body Wash is present, as well as The Righteous Butter Creamy Body Wash and The Scrub of Your Life Exfoliator. For the body, the cult classic The Righteous Butter Body Butter and The Smoothie Star Body Milk. For the face, the Vitamin C Facial Wash with its pink beads suspended in a clean, green wash and one of the new face mask; the Party Recovery Radiance Boosting Mask. I’m really excited to see the Supercat Eye Liner because it is brilliant for creating sexy cat eye wings that are ultra black, before coating lashes with the Thick n Fast mascara. Another cult product in the box is a full sized tube of Sexy Mother Pucker in Plums Up. The Spa of Wonder has certainly got me stocked up for the foreseeable, which is handy as I was running out of shower gel!
In the Christmas collection this year, there are some really cute sets that not only will make some great stocking fillers, but the designs and packaging are so adorable that you’ll be unable to resist. One of the sets; the Special Edition Soaper Heroes has been updated to include new products and it’s just £10. Inside the tin, there are four travel sized minis, as well as two of the brand new shower gel pods that contain single use amounts of Rich and Foamous, and Sugar Crush Body Wash. A travel sized Clean On Me, The Righteous Butter, Scrub of Your Life and Hand Food are also included. With this weather, I have going through Hand Food like you wouldn’t believe and my office is mingled with the scents of Sugar Crush, The Original Pink and Smoothie Star.
My absolute favourite piece from the whole Christmas collection has to be the Pouty Popper, and I have been really restraining to not pop this all over my house. Perfect for the Christmas dinner table, the Pouty Popper holds two mini limited edition Sexy Mother Pucker glosses in brand new shades of Pink Stardust and Bare Enough. I can’t wait to pop this on Christmas Day so I can get to my two new glosses!
I have discover new lip products and they are definite game changers. Ticking all the boxes of the features that I look for in a lip product; liquid, matte, long lasting, fabulous shades, the Spectaculips Matte-alics are simply divine, and as an added bonus, they are extremely hard wearing a difficult to remove. In three shades; Pink Charming, Bronze Girl and Gold Dusk, they apply smoothly and it’s so easy to create a defined lip by using the tapered doe foot applicator. They dry down to a velvety finish and metallic shine that’s just enough sparkle without being too Tin Man. I am obsessed with Gold Dusk. It reminds me of Nars Orgasm but with super duper staying power. What I found with the Matte-allics is that they didn’t dry my lips out so that they felt tight and stiff. The shades are very wearable, and I think Bronze Girl needs to be tried on to be appreciated for the beauty that it is.
There are so many goodies in the Soap & Glory Christmas collection, and they are all available at Boots with them all being included in the 3 for 2 offer. Don’t forget, you can only get Spa of Wonder for £30 until Thursday so do not miss out!
