Guest Post: Nail The Look


Soap and Glory review

Hey, I'm Amy from Nailthelook.blogspot.com doing a guest post for Laura. When she wrote the post asking if people would like to help her out as she’s busy with university work I felt I should help, having recently graduated myself I understand how stressful it can be and at the minute I have time off work so thought it would be rude not to help J

So, onto the post itself, after a little discussion with Laura I've decided to do a review of some Soap & Glory products. Before I became a blogger Soap & Glory was just a brand I heard now and again, I didn't really know what it consisted of or if it was any good. Reading many other blogs revealed that the brand sells a wider variety of products than I expected and is very well respected and loved. So it was only a matter of time before I had to try it for myself. To begin with I decided to test out the Scrub Your Nose In It and the Mist You Madly body spray. 


Scrub Your Nose In It - £7.50
I’d heard so many positive things about this product so thought I had to give it a go. Originally I felt £7.50 was fairly expensive as the bottle isn’t very big however, the first thing I have noticed, is you only need the smallest amount each time you use it so I can imagine it lasting a long time which makes it worth the price. Also the product can be used as a scrub and a face mask so two in one which is great. The product is supposed to minimise large pores and help prevent blemishes. After using the product every day for a few weeks now I do feel it does what it says. It makes your skin lovely and soft and you can really feel it working whilst you’re using it even though the exfoliating beads are very fine. The only negative I have with this product is the smell. I’d heard so many good things about the smell of Soap & Glory products but this seems to have a hint of tea tree in it which may not be a problem to many but for some reason I can’t stand the smell of tea tree. It’s not so overpowering that I can’t use it but I was just expecting something a little different.  Overall I’d probably give this product an 8/10.

Mist You Madly - £3.50
I picked this up on a bit of a whim, I hadn’t planned to buy this and hadn’t really heard much about it either but I gave it a little spray in the shop and loved it. I think it’s really hard to get across in words how something smells but if I had to try I’d say it’s really fresh and floral and is just a really nice smell. I was also quite surprised at how long the fragrance lasts. After a few hours I could still smell it on myself which I didn’t expect from a body spray. I love to use it just after the shower or just before leaving the house. It’s not quite a perfume and I wouldn’t be using it in replacement of one but I still love it. I could also see myself using it sometimes as an air freshener to give my room a lovely fresh fragrance. For £3.50 I got a 100ml bottle but looking on the website you can also buy a 250ml bottle for £6.50, I think this would be worth the price as you only need a few sprays each time you use it so I can see it lasting. Overall I think I’d give this product a 9/10. ­

I’m really looking forward to trying some more of their products including the Peaches & Clean facial wash and one of their body butters.
