Doing Drugstore: Soap & Glory

Doing Drugstore: Soap & Glory

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,

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?

Timberlake_Box_Lover If by the body butter you mean the Righteous Butter I've tried it; all the products are available and everywhere in England (: The butter is just the right texture lovely and smooth and light but very effective. It's more of a luxury product than a "results" one, if you know what I mean. It moisturizes well but doesn't give you that "silky feel" it guarentees. It has a lovely smell I just can't place. It's not fruity but very fun and elegant at the same time; it's not very strong; but others can smell it. The packaging is lovely; not unlike Benefit, sorry I must be boring you; anyhoooo it's well worth the £8 (I think that's around $16!)

Ohmigod, I freakin' hate when people do that!! Just buy it, and if you don't like it, keep your receipt and take it back. The store returns it to the company for credit, which is what they will eventually do with all the "testers" people turn the product into. And you know what else I hate? When people open a new package of something to "test" it, decide they like it, then they purchase one that hasn't been opened! WTF!?! Serenity now.

I'm not crazy about the packaging but the Bliss association is a positive factor for sure. I'ma try the lip plumper cuz of the name too early violence (weirdo nick, btw) but alas I have to drive over an hour to get to a Target , and its not even a SuperTarget, so I'll have to wait for a bit.

i stopped to look at the line because the pink packaging was so cute. but there was even a salesperson standing there trying to hassle me... at target! ultimately i had to pass 'cause the price of these seemingly novelty products.

It seems a bit more expensive than regular drug store brands which has kept me from buying so far. Maybe I'll give it a whirl though.

I got some of the shower gel/exfoliator "Scrub of your Life" and it smells fab! I'll definitely try out some of the other products.

I, personally, would try it just for the packaging. I think it's cute.

I bought Soap & Glory's Sexy Motherpucker lip gloss in Nude. I love the name. The color is pretty much the same color as my lips but a tad darker and the flavor tastes like chocolate. It's supposed to plump the lips, and I notice a tingle and a slightly noticeable plumping of the lips, but I have really full lips as it is. A little sticky, but the color is great and it does the job for under 10 bucks. I don't like to pay too much for lip plumpers because anytime I wear them and kiss my boyfriend, he says his lips are on fire and to take that stuff off!!

I agree with dracsbabe..but then I picked up the small $2.99 versions to try them out. Thanks for the heads up on the Body Scrub Bella.. Has anyone tried the Body Butter from Soap & Glory? Please let me know what you think of it

I know what you mean, Dracsbabe. I think the packaging will either draw or attract shoppers. It's cute and cheeky, but it does have a "novelty" feel to it.

I saw this at Target but from the packaging I thought it was just some novelty beauty products so I passed on it. Now that I know the Bliss people are behind it I'll be sure to pick some up. :D

I tried the Great Shakes, and found it to be an above-average hand cream with a pleasant scent. No more, no less. The big disappointment for me was that (because of the Bliss association) I was expecting more of a scent. I adore the Bliss scents, especially the Vanilla & Bergamot! Soap & Glory has a perfectly nice scent, but it doesn't blow me away and there's no choices, just the one!
