Soap and Glory: My Favourite Bath Time Duo!

Soap and Glory are one of my favourite cosmetic brands. I’m a late starter; I’ve only started buying their products in the last year, but they are definitely now a staple in my everyday beauty routine.
While I have perused their makeup products, it’s the bath time potions and pampering lotions I really come to rely on Soap and Glory for.   So, why am I such a fan? For one, I think their collection is of a really good quality. After use, my skin feels silly smooth and nourished - and the scents are great. I’m a sucker for matching things, so if I’m using one type of scrub - I definitely want the matching lotion!
My favourite combination comprises of the Smoothie Star bits;
Smoothie Star Breakfast Scrub - This lovely little scrub looks like gloopy brown sugar! It contains organic cupuacu bio scrubs, bananas, almond and honey extracts - giving it a fantastically sweet scent. This has great exfoliating properties, yet isn’t too rough on the skin. It works best when your skin isn’t completely soaking we,so I flipped the shower off for a bit during application. While I normally use my scrubber for my exfoliators, this one worked best I found when applying with your hands. I’d really recommend using this, and I would say its worth the £8 price tag - it really lasted for me!
Smoothie Star Lightly Whipped Body Buttercream - I love this little gem, and the tagline always makes me giggle - it advises to rub the product on your elbows to get some seriously silky skin! I was really impressed with the moisturising properties, and this really helped to clear up some dry skin I had on my legs. My skin feels and looks much softer after I have used this. The formula is really thick, but easy to rub in and thankfully doesn’t have that greasy effect. This retails at £10.50, but if you’re a savvy shopper you’ll know that Boots often run 3 for 2 offers on Soap and Glory products - so you dip in with that! At Christmas, there are some fab gift sets so that you can try a bit of everything else too.
I’ve recently bought the ‘Rich and Foamous Bath and Body Wash’ (having normally stuck with ‘Clean on Me’), which goes perfectly with these too. 
What are your favourite Soap and Glory products?
