Aprils Empties – Part One

C: so in my bid to save money/use up my massive stash of beauty products I decided to start doing some empties posts! So here is what I used up last month:

So first up we have Lush’s Charity Pot, which I bought for £1 as all proceeds went to charity. A lovely idea – which is why we love Lush! I liked this product, it sunk into the skin well and smelt lovely. But personally I prefer a body butter to a lotion as my skin is so dry.

Repurchase: No.

We then have No.7’s Beautiful Skin BB Cream. I absolutely love this as I prefer using a BB cream on a day to day basis than foundation (I can pretend I am doing my skin good rather than clogging it up!). This BB skin gives good, even coverage and lasts all day. Perfect when you want natural looking make up as it lets freckles etc show through whilst covering imperfections.

Repurchase: Yes (I have already re-bought this and started it!)

Soap & Glory Butter Yourself Moisture Lotion – I love the smell of this and found it to be very moisturising and thicker than your normal body lotion so I liked the formula. But… (I’m sorry S&G I normally adore your products) the bottle was just so annoying! It only pumped out a tiny bit at a time and when there was about a quarter left in the bottle the pump didn’t work at all. I hate wasting products so I had to leave it upside down and squeeze it into another container. Super Frustrating.

Repurchase: No. If they use a different bottle then yes.

Phil Smith: Wow Brunette Coloured Dry Shampoo. I wont bang on about this as we did a review/comparison on dry shampoos here. This one was my favourite!

Repurchase: Yes.

Lastly we have Soap & Glory’s Heel Genius which I reviewed here. I love this foot cream!

Repurchase: Yes (I already have another left from my Christmas stash!)

So something a little bit different from us today, I shall be doing part 2 next week as I managed to finish so many products last month I couldn’t fit them into one post (Wahhooo!). Let us know what you think! #twolittleowlsblog

Soap and Glory: A Review

Image

C: I absolutely love Soap and Glory products, I have been using them for over 3 years now since I got my first gift set for Christmas. I love the beautiful packing and most of the time the product inside matches up to its beautiful exterior. I received a ridiculous amount this Christmas, including several products that I had not used before so I thought a review was in order. I also received so much I could give some to Annie so she could try them and give her opinions as well (yes, I know. I’m probably the best friend ever). I could go on and on about Soap and Glory, so we decided to cut it as short as possible and only include our favourite products and any problems that we encountered. So my favourite product is the Sugar Crush shower gel:

Its fresh limey/sweet scent is amazing and definitely my favourite out of all the different shower gel/moisturiser lines Soap and Glory do. However, I do think its a more summery smell so I have had to force myself to stop using it so I can save it for the sunshine (if we get any so maybe I shouldn’t bother!). It is also very moisturising, and although I have really sensitive skin I have never had a reaction to it or any of their other products. My only negative review of all the products I have tried is that I received a pump version of the Butter Yourself body moisturiser and the pump/bottle is awful. Only a tiny amount comes out at a time, and as I get dry skin and use a lot of moisturiser it takes me forever! it does still smell amazing and sink in quickly though so I shall let them off, just this once. I shall be purchasing some of the Soap and Glory skincare soon, as I have only tried their cleanser so I am really interested to see if their skincare range (Scrubatomic!) is as good as their other products! 

A: Okay, so you’re probably all going to be really shocked but I have never used any Soap and Glory products. I know, I know, but I am kind of new to this whole beauty thing (Chloe teaching me the ways of beauty perfection was one of the inspirations behind starting our blog). I was pretty impressed when she let me have some of her extra travel sized versions of stuff she already had. But at the time, I didn’t have any idea how nice Soap and Glory is to use!! There was a massive hype about it and now I know why. Everything is nice to use and has really lovely fresh scents, but my favourite product is the ‘The Scrub of your Life’.

This smells amazing and is such a good exfoliator, and the best part for me is that it didn’t give me dry skin, which I was expecting! I have really sensitive skin anyway so I was really dubious about using the range, I normally stick to products which have no added scents or colours but I had no problems at all with Soap and Glory. 

The only thing I didn’t like was the body butter – I thought it was way too greasy so was a bit disappointed. But, I’m not a fan of body butters anyway, Chloe loves them and the Soap and Glory one is one of her favourites! #twolittleowls
