Category: Soap and Glory


Hello everyone!!!

This item was a gift from Stephanie Nangoi, thanks babe! And she said she doesn’t like the scent, hence instead of throwing it away, she gave it to me which I received it, gladly haha! I love Soap & Glory, I think their stuffs are adorably pink and I love toiletries as well.

And the scent is the one thing she can’t stand off, that’s the first thing I’ve done, sniff it! This product has an odd start with me, the scent was kinda sharp and spiky at first to the nose, but something happens.

With babassu oil, sea salt and moisturising jojoba and mandarin oils. Scented with our Mist You Madly™ fragrance.

Instructions for Use

Scoop out a handful and rub it all over, then rinse. Smear our Daily Smooth Body Butter on top (it has the same sexy smell!), if you want to maximize the moisturize.

Insisted on trying the product I scoop a handful of this pink gooey hard big sea salts where tiny blue dots are everywhere (what are those) and start rubbing it off against my skin, and there it is. The scent start to evolve and tone down a bit. I start noticing a very vivid scent which I usually experienced when I’m entering a 5 stars hotels, the smell of a clean, fresh and comfortable room. That’s the smell! I have to admit that I enjoy the scent so much.

Move on to the texture, the sea salts are big alright and feels rough on the skin, and since it was really big, a lot of them goes down the drain before even buffing the skin. The product can be used on dry or damp skin and again, since the sea salt are big even though the skin is wet, they easily dissolve, it actually took them a while before dissolving. The scrubbing can goes as long or as short as you want it to, and depends on your moods.

Result? A soft and smooth skin with this memorable aroma that I enjoy for about 30 minutes to 1 hour after the shower, the oils help the skin to stay moist and the scrubbing effect help the blood circulation under the skin.

Overall, it’s a scrub that does buffing, pampering and aromatic (if you happens to like the scent like I do) and gives the result just as it is.

My review.

The clear gel is lovely but not lathering as much as I want, I use like half of my palm, like shown in the picture with bubble that said ‘clear gel’. My hair is long (not extra long) like reaching my the hook of my bra on the back. Maybe my hair is too dirty? I do not know but definitely need another session right after the first. The smell is lovely, mild and floral, somewhat reminds me of a stay in a 4 star hotel in the USA, so smell-wise, good! But I can’t say I really smell raspberry thou’, btw, what is the smell of raspberry?

I like the fact that the shampoo made my scalp feels clean and not easy to re-oily. The hair become shiny alright especially when you have a dull hair and use a mask and/or conditioner afterwards. For my oily scalp and level 2 dryness of my hair (out of ten) the shampoo can do me good daily.

Do I like it? Sure do! Now I want the conditioner!!!

 Now this is my review:

When I bought them it was a true adventure, I’ve been hunting this item since 2 years ago. I went to Sephora in ION and the staffs said it was sold out so I went to the one in Ngee Ann City only to be told they run out as well. New stocks will come soon. So I went again after a month or so, still not available and again and again and again.

It seriously build up my curiosity about the product. The staff also mention that the product is so good every time they stock up it would be finished so fast. Like seriously?

Finally after years of searching (a bit of exaggeration but it’s true thou’) I get mine in January 2012. I hold it like something so dear for me. And I’ve tried it.

The pink packaging is so cute, love every words they put there. So after a shower I shake the bottle and spray it directly to my armpits. Cough cough cough, wow, warning! The kinda like powdery talcy-thingy is just bursting too in the air, a bit sharp to the nose. Glad Pits has seriously drop some expectation here.

The scent is mild and there’s a cooling sensation to the armpits but do not inhale any of it, trust me on this, hold your breath and leave the zone affected, then breath normally.

After that, the deo effect is actually quite good and you can spray it again after like 4 hours in sweat, like going to the gym sweat, but if you are working behind table, sitting comfortably in an air conditioner room, you can be happy since it would stay like 8-12 hours or so. I do take a shower after 8 hours, so I never tested the product more than 8 hours, but so far so good.

Btw, It does depends on your stink level too haha! Some do sweats a lot and maybe eat a lot of ingredients that ‘helps’ boosting up stink level, while other is blessed with naturally fragrant sweat (envy!!!!) .

Will I keep using the product? Yes, but only in a well ventilated area as in open all the windows and doors or spray them and immediately leave that room.

I went to Singapore some time ago, I guess I was clearly homesick. I just miss the freedom I have there. Being able to walk around and not being dependent to private vehicle, relying on the safety of the public transport and comfort in a whole lot more.
There’s one place I have to keep checking them out. Well, aside from Watson, Guardian, and Sasa. Yes, it’s Sephora. Available in Takashimaya and ION, any gal would feel like in a candy store. From big brands and ads to those you’ve known by heart.

From cosmetics, beauty products, skincare, toiletries to perfume. It’s like they got it all for the pampering purpose. Sephora itself carry their own brand and you can try as well. Usually a trip here always took me hours and hours until I ran out of time.

Products not just divided by brands but sometime according to their function. The one on the right caught my eyes, those pink packaging with big words and like pin up looks. It was Soap & Glory. A brand that I recently learn and feels drawn into ^__^ UK and USA loved brand are available almost all worldwide thanks to Sephora.
I bought bunch of their stuffs and will do a review bits by bits. This one is the first of their clan. The Tosca paste feels a bit rough. I use it on my nose and oily zone only, avoiding my cheeks as they are dry and I just don’t want to disturb them now.
Btw, here’s some info from soapandglory.com:

SCRUB YOUR NOSE IN IT™

Multitasking scrub and mask

RRP £7.40
 – 125ml
At last – a simple solution for large pores and clogging. Just Scrub Your Nose In It™ with this amazing face scrub. Our fruit-acid formula leaves skin looking bright and radiant.

Instructions for Use

Apply a pea-sized dollop onto a damp t-zone. (That’s your nose, chin, and forehead.) Massage gently in circular motions, then extend out to the less clogged places on your face. Rinse well and follow with moisturizer.


Actually there’s so many other cleanser and scrub from them, somehow I choose this one since it says I can leave ’em on like a mask that helps the oily areas become well not oily anymore. Here’s my experience:

As I was showering at the same time, I softly cleans my face first using my usual cleanser, then I scrub my nose with Scrub Your Nose In IT and it feels tingling a bit as it is minty and very refreshingly scented as well, hmm scented or from natural ingredients? I see Orange flower extract in the ingredients. I leave it on as prescribed on my sometime oily nose. It will dries up like a clay dries. But it was really comforting in a way — . — soothing and still soft for me. I am cranky about my scrubs and only the mild and high quality one do pass the test.

Scrub Your Nose In It? It pass with flying color. The scents is refreshingly lovely, the scrub does clean my nose well without drying it and over powering effect that cause sensitiveness, allergies nor irritation and it works! After using it as a mask as well my nose do have less oils, it works well on my forehead and chin as well. I’m liking it!
