Soap and Glory Sundays: Pt.3

After a big gap, I am pleased to announce that Soap and Glory Sundays are back! And I’m going to begin by writing about a face soap that I have recently introduced into my regime.

I was eyeing this face wash up for a while, and I have to admit I was skeptical because I associated Soap and Glory with predominantly body care.  As a novice to Soap and Glory face care, I decided to give the face wash a chance.

Soap and Glory Face Soap & Clarity 3-in-1 Daily Vitamin C Facial Wash, claims to gently exfoliate and purify skin, as well as remove make up (not eye make up of course). So I put this blue wonder to the test and was pleasantly surprised!

In true Soap and Glory fashion, the packaging for this product is fantastic! With a see through bottle, you can see the vibrant blue wash encompassing the bright pink exfoliating beads, and I have to admit it made me want to crack open the bottle as soon as I got it. It seemed to me that you got a lot of bang for your buck as the bottle is quite big and a little goes a long way.

After using this product for about 3 weeks now, my skin is looking even more refreshed and is great for daily use. It doesn’t dry out my skin and is great to remove the make up that you might have missed from your cleansing routine. I found, that even with London hard water, this soap lathered up so well and smells amazing! It’s made with a yuzu complex as well as amino acids. Now I haven’t used this long enough to attest to the long term affects of these ingredients, but I can say it removes the make up comparatively  better than other face washes I have tried.

The scent of the face wash continues to uphold the Soap and Glory trademark of gorgeous smells! It’s very fresh and is almost like a subtle hint of their body products. All in all I have been satisfied with this product and is great intro to the face care that Soap and Glory has to offer.

Liz Earle: Hot Cloth Cleanser

I’m baccckkkk!

With the make up world baking our face, we sometimes forget the importance of taking it all off at the end of the day. After painfully seraching for the best way to remove my make up, I finally got round to trying the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser. This is a great multi use product, as it removes your eye make up too!

The Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser normally comes paired with the Liz Earle Pure Cotton Muslin Cloth, which I think works the best, but you can use any muslin cloth you like.

The cleanser itself is a creamy consistency and is used straight on your face. This is a great way to gently remove your make up without ripping your eyelashes out. After the make up starts to melt away, you soak the muslin cloth in warm water and wipe away the make up. If I have a full face, I tend to do this twice, just to make sure I have removed everything properly.

I found that this doesn’t dry my face out, so after rinsing (if I’m feeling lazy) I don’t necessarily need to moisturise… but of course I would follow this up with a night cream before I sleep away.

In terms of price, I think this cleanser is reasonable and the muslin cloths are reusable (you can just chuck them in the washing machine and they’re ready to go again!).

Liz Earle often has packages offers online and is great way to try their products and see what works best with your skin. This cleanser also comes in a scented version.

This cleanser really is my new go to! It’s affordable, it works and you only need a couple of pumps at a time. It’s a product that I reccomend to all my friends.
