Soap & Glory Review ♥

I've been saying on Twitter that I'm going to review these for a while now, and I've finally got around to it! :) Yay!

I'm going to start with the Heel Genius because this is my favourite of the two:

"Feet should be friendly. Soft. Smooth. Even lovely to look at. Massage a generous layer of Heel Genius onto clean feet every night (or at least as often as you remember). Slip cotton socks overtop and let it soak while you sleep."

When i first got this i applied it every night for about a week, and i can say that it has made my feet really soft, and i think with using this and something like a ped egg or a pumice stone you can keep your feet in really good condition. I never really had a foot routine before using this (i just used my ped egg every now and then) but i think I'll definitely be buying this again! The product itself is a blue almost gel like cream and when applied it gives a cooling feel to your feet. And when it says apply generously you don't really need to use a lot, i squeeze out about 2 blobs onto the end of my finger one blob for the front of my foot, and one blob for my heel, and i still have product left over on my hands after rubbing it in. As for the smell, I'd say it has a fruity smell to it with a hint of menthol, its quite a nice smell actually.

Now onto the Hand Food:

"Apply Hand Food hand cream as often as you want to soften, smooth and soothe dry, chapped, or otherwise hampered hands."

I have been trying to apply this as often as i can, when i remember to after washing my hands anyway. It claims that its a "non-greasy hydrating hand cream with shea butter, macadamia oil & marshmallow". It is definitely non-greasy, it sinks right into your hands and leaves them feeling like you never applied it, apart from a lovely soft feeling. Overall though I'm not sure if my hands are any less dryer than they were before, i think i would say they are but i don't really pay too much attention to my hands, its not a drastic difference or i think i would have noticed. I'm not sure i would buy the full size of this again, but they do make a cute handbag sized one that i might consider buying to throw in my bag whilst I'm out in the cold but I'm sure this one is going to last me ages yet. As for the smell of this one, I'm not exactly sure what it smells of.. It's quite nice though, not over powering at all.

I'm going to do a separate review for the Soap & Glory Scrub Your Nose In It because i don't feel I've used it enough yet to do a review (i still haven't tried it as a face mask, which i need to do) but i hope this helped any of you looking to try some of the Soap & Glory products!

Thanks for reading,
Charlotte. xx :)
