A while ago, I told you about Soap & Glory, the new body-care line from Bliss spa founder Marcia Kilgore. The cheekily named products are available at Target (and for preorder online), with most priced under $15.
I've tried a few products, and while they're completely separate from Bliss, I can't help but compare them. I love a lot of Bliss's face masks and creams, but with the exception of Body Butter, their body products don't bowl me over. It's not that they're anywhere near bad; it's just that they're pricey, and I can't justify spending $34 on a body scrub that doesn't blow me away. Soap & Glory, however, gives me a bit of that luxurious feeling, but at a much more affordable price. For details on different products, read more
All of the products have a fresh, fruity scent with notes of mandarin and amber. There's enough complexity to the notes that you don't get hit over the head with one strong smell. I like that in my body products. And now, on to the individual items.
Great Shakes hand cream ($9.99) has a thick but creamy consistency. It works well as an everyday hand cream—you know, the kind of stuff you keep at your desk. If you have extremely dry skin, a more intense treatment would be more appropriate.
Next up: Clean on Me body cleanser ($9.99). This is my favorite product from the range for a few reasons. First, it comes in a big pump bottle, which means less fussing and mess in the shower. Secondly, it lathers well enough to double as a shaving helper in a pinch. Finally, it cleans without drying skin—plus, it leaves a very light, lovely scent.
I also really liked Scrub of Your Life ($14.99), which has tiny exfoliating granules to rub away dead skin. The consistency is thick and slightly pasty, but in a good way—you can really rub and rub and not worry about the scrub being too watery.
So far, I'm liking Soap & Glory. What about you? From reading your comments on the earlier post, I know some of you have tried it. Any other thoughts?
