Well, Blogmas lasted all of 7 days before I forgot to get a post scheduled. To be fair, I’ve had good reasoning and as I wrote this, I am currently in New York after some intense few days of training. I wanted this post to be ready for you on Friday morning so I am hoping that stock levels are still high to be able to give you the opportunity of treating yourself to the one thing that we wait for each and every year. Of course, I’m talking about the big one, the Soap and Glory Christmas extravaganza where a gift set that is usually £60 has been reduced to just £30 for one week only. This time, Soap and Glory have made the set even better, and whereas before when a limited edition toiletry bag was one of the highlights, this year has surpassed expectations with the ever so cool travel tin.
This year Soap and Glory have taken you as the cover star and used hundreds of selfies that devoted S&G fans have sent in across various social media channels, and have made them into a super collage of a vintage pin up girl. I think I tagged myself in a selfie but I haven’t found my image just yet. The travel suitcase tin is just wonderful, and as I love all things travel, it has been well received. Pink and hard wearing,its a great size to store your toiletries in as well as coming in handy if you do need to grab something substantial to fill with items needed for a weekend away. Grab your boarding card, as we are delving deeper inside.
Nine full size items make up the Soap and Glory The Whole Glam Lot set with some cult classics as well as some newer products that I haven’t had chance to try out. Not only that but a deluxe sample of Sexy Mother Pucker in Rose and Shine has been included as a special treat. For the body, I’m over the moon to see my bae Sugar Crush making an appearance in the form of a 500ml body wash. Can you believe that I ran out of S&G body wash and not one back up in my stash. The Smoothie Star Body Milk also comes in a 500ml pump bottle, which is great as I go through Smoothie Star like you wouldn’t believe.
For the face, I’m really happy to see that this years set contains two products that I have never tried before. The Face Soap and Clarity Vitamin C Facial Wash is an intriguing blend of green gel facial wash with jojoba scrub beads. A 3 in 1 wash, it exfoliates whilst purifying the skin and giving a deep cleanse. The Speed Plump All Day Super Moisturiser is the product that has intrigued me the most. The blurb states that it is an extremely potent and lightweight cream that attacks dry skin and it’s loaded with oxygenators. For someone who suffers with dry and dehydrated skin, this sounds absolutely amazing and I’m excited to give it a whirl.
For the body, two cult classics make an appearance and take my current stash levels to insane amounts. For some reason, I seem to have around 5 or 6 brand new Righteous Butters. I think as it is a cult classic, it seems to head my way several times a year. I can’t moisturise enough to work through it all. I ran out of Scrub Of Your Life Body Buffer recently so I’m happy I have a replacement. Rather than being a tradition scrub exfoliator, Scrub of Your Life is a foaming scrub that is a lot more delicate on skin meaning that I can use it frequently throughout the week to keep my skin feeling soft, smooth and supple.
For the hands, the perfect duo from Soap and Glory; Hand Maid and Hand Food. I go through anti bacterial hand sanitiser like it’s going out of fashion and I have a bottle in every bag and several for work. The only downside to using an alcohol based hand cleanser rather than a moisturising hand soap whilst on the go is that my hands are prone to dryness and discomfort. Hand Food is an intensely hydrating hand cream that takes away any discomfort and dryness from having limited hand washing facilities and leaves my hands feeling like I’m wearing silk gloves.
A Thick & Fast High Definition Collagen mascara completes the 9 strong collection of products. Lengthening and ultra black, Thick & Fast is one of the mascaras that I get in each S&G big one, and never repurchase throughout the year. I don’t know why because it’s a blooming good mascara. Maybe because I know that I’ll be getting a fresh one each Christmas? A deluxe sample of Sexy Mother Pucker finishes off the set, and also completes my full colour collection now I have Rose and Shine. Tingly, plumping and super glossy, who doesn’t love Sexy Mother Pucker.
My little elves have told me that it’s been a massive seller already and that stocks are now limited, so if you are wanting to get the Soap and Glory The Whole Glam Lot, you need to be really quick.
