Soap and Glory Sundays: Pt.2

Welcome to the second part of my product review for The Whole Glam Lot. Now we’re all buttered up from last week’s body butter run through, I’m going to be chatting about the prequel! Shower gel! Sugar Crush Body Wash to be precise. The bottle in this set comes in a pump (500ml) and can also be used as bubble bath. This product is great to start your morning with a zing.

The texture of the shower gel is quite creamy and is perfect to use with exfoliating gloves and loofah. It lathers up very easily and leaves your skin feeling nourished. Just like with the Body Butter, I assumed that this product would be heavily scented, however, I found it to be very gentle on my skin. If you’re  one for an odourless shower gel, the I would not recommend this shower gel. Although, it is scented it is perfect for everyday use.

I have used Sugar Crush Body Wash for over a month now and I still have plenty left. A little goes a long way so don’t be tempted to tip out the whole bottle on your first use. I also tried the product out as a bubble bath (as the bottle suggested) and found that I preferred it as a shower gel.

TIP: Feel free to make this into a scrub by adding some granulated sugar or salt into your hand before mixing with the shower gel. I always chose to follow through with a moisturiser, but using the shower gel on it’s own is quite nourishing it itself.

You can also get this in a travel sized bottle, so is perfect for smelling delightful on your holidays!!

No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Brush

Hi All!

With the importance of skincare becoming more and more prominent, I thought it was time for me to try a rotating brush. I decided on the No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Brush. Not only is this priced at a great price point, but it gave me the results I wanted.

I have been using this brush for the last month or so now and it is still doing a great job. As I have just moved to the city, I needed to up the game on my cleansing routine and this brush was a great place to start. It’s a light little gadget that you can pair with your cleanser and it makes your skin feel great for the next stage in your skincare.

There are two settings on the brush and it comes with a detachable head that you can wash after every use. I used the gentler setting around my nose and the higher setting on my forehead (as this is a bit more resilient than softer areas on the face) and it worked a treat. After the first use, my skin was instantly softer and the black heads around my nose noticeably reduced. The brush works by rotating and you guiding it around your face, and gently exfoliating the skin. Although this is a face brush, I also used it on the front and back of my neck in order the get an all round clean and feel fresher.

I wouldn’t recommend using this with a thick cleanser, but this was just my preference as I felt the brush rotated better with a thinner consistency. I did also try this brush with my daily face wash and I loved it! I only use the brush on my face for around two minutes as I feel I don’t need it more than that. My skin type is combination. It gets oily in the middle and is normal around the edges and I found the brush was suitable for it.

I feel like I’ll stick with this brush and keep using it in the future. Overall I would give it an eight out ten for doing what is says on the box.
