{The Powder Room} Soap & Glory Yule Monty Gift Box Review



Oooh...it's Wednesday dolls! Half way through the week! This is my first beauty review of the New Year - yay! I have a lot of products to bring you, but since this was part of my Christmas gifts, I decided to start here! I've been a fan of Soap & Glory for a long time, their decadent aromas, silky smooth applications that leave the skin feeling wonderful. Not to mention, I adore the packaging & product names too :)


For those of you not familiar with Soap & Glory, they're a British Beauty Brand founded by celebrity facialist, Marcia Kilgore. I've never gotten a Soap & Glory box, this was from their Limited Edition 'The Yule Monty' Gift Set with 9 full size products in it for £27 with £60 worth of treats in it. I've always just gotten a twin set or something like that, so this was a mega treat - also with some things I've never used before. So, what was in it!?! 



{Note: This is not a sponsored post. I received this box as a Christmas gift. All opinions are completely my own & results will vary from person to person. Also I've linked each product individually, link to the box itself is above.}





As you can see my products came in a stellar beauty case, which I will make good use of. This was a special case designed by Jonathan Saunders. So, without further ado....


Sugar Crush Energy Boosting Fresh & Foamy Body Wash
(Sizzling Heart ♥ 5/5
White in colour, has lime oil, kiwi juice water & skin softening omega-rich veggie oil in it. Certain to wake you up in the morning with the citrus scent, it felt like bathing in a key lime pie, though not as messy *wink*. Woke me up straight away, it has a sweet, yet bitter aroma to it. Super lather, skin felt soft and clean after, adored this so much.


The Scrub of your Life
(Sizzling Heart ♥ 5/5
I'm obsessed about scrubs, if they're weak, they go in the bin and if they are too rough, they go in the bin! But, the balance here is just right. It's a clear gel & has little pink beads in it that have a moisturizing foaming action for working away the dead skin, while leaving it soft and nourished. This is the first time I've had a foaming scrub & I feel it's how all scrubs should be. The foaming action keeps the scrub from feeling too rough and harsh on the skin. Loved it.


Butter Yourself Ultra- Nourishing Fruity Liquid Moisture Lotion 
(Sizzling Heart ♥ 5/5
This has become my favourite lotion at the moment. Not only does it moisturize, sinking instantly into the skin, leaving it feeling nourished & ultra moisturised without the greasiness, but I like can't get enough of the scent, I've become addicted. They've added in their 'Fruitigo Fragrance'...with notes of frozen yuzu, orange oil, green fig and jungle pomelo essence. Combine that with the lotion itself consisting of Shea Butter, Orange waterjuice, fig pulp extract and almond, mango and moringa oils you have a exotic and exhilarating moisturizer to play with. It's a thick cream, but not too much, works in the skin like magic. Gimme gimme gimme!


Heel Genius Amazing Foot Cream
(Sizzling Heart ♥ 5/5 
My feet had become a little dry due to the cold weather here, so this was a must to get into first. I use it before bed & after showers & put a pair of socks on to seal it in and my feet have become mega soft in such a short space of time. It has Allantoin, Glycerin, Macadamia oil, Menthol, Bilberry, Orange & lemon fruit acid Smoothers. Seriously, high heel wearers or anyone with feet in need of some love, this is a must. Has a pleasant subtle scent and gives a cooling sensation to the feet when used. Wonderful!


Peaches & Clean 3-in-1 wash off. Deep Purifying cleanser
(Hot Hot Heart ♥ 4/5
 This is a cream cleanser & I've not always been a fan of them as my skin didn't feel clean enough. I used this on face with no make-up on for the first time. It says it can be used to remove make - even mascara too. But, for the first time I used it with no make-up on. The thick consistency really grips to your face and you work it around a bit like frosting on a cake, I loved it. Then I just used a damp warm cloth and took it all off. My skin felt soft & not as tight as it usually does. I didn't feel it got all my make-up off when I used it again, but it wouldn't stop me using it as I don't wear make-up all the time. Has a slightly peach colour, but doesn't really smell like peaches to me, that's my only complaint.


The Righteous Butter
(Sizzling Heart ♥ 5/5 
This was one of the first products I ever bought from Soap & Glory many years ago and I loved it then too. The scent is completely different than the Butter Yourself up. It's softer, a little powdery, at times reminds me of 'Miss Cherie Dior' on a different level - it's even pink as well. Really expensive smelling without the expensive price tag & it works so nicely. I have it in the bathroom to use when I get out of the shower. It's a female scent to the tee without the sugary kind of sweetness. Shea Butter & Aloe Vera combine to ravish your skin in delight for a truly righteous experience *wink*


Hand Food
(Sizzling Heart ♥ 5/5 
Another product I had used a long time ago, I bought this while shopping, as my hands were dry. I didn't even actually test it at the store, because it had me at the label. It said 'Hydrating hand cream with sea butter, macadamia oil and marshmallow' HELLO - Marshmallow, say what!?! I'm Sold! It has a very soft, very faint scent, which I like a lot because if your using the body lotions or a perfume, the last thing I want is to be smothered & choked with a variety of scents. For those who like products with soft aromas or practically none at all, I would grab this. I use it on my hands every day. I've tested other hand lotions & I always go back to this stuff. It's been the best for me in keeping my hands moisturised & soft. Gorgeous!


Sexy Mother Pucker XL. Extreme Plump Lipgloss 'Pink out Loud'
(Hot Hot Heart ♥ 4/5
Haha...this has to be my favourite name for a product, I love it!! It does warn that 'this will almost immediately plump, buzz, tingle and zing' & that it's not for the meek of mouth. And believe me, you will know why when you put it on. It's another that I had tried before, it makes my lips feel tingly, but the sensations fade after a while really. The lips are glossy & luscious, with a hint of pink colour. I only gave it a 'Hot Hot Heart' because the lips are meant to plump up, but mine looked the same, though I have full lips as it is, so maybe someone with smaller lips would see more of a difference. I still loved it though.


Thick & Fast Super Volume Mascara
(Sizzling Heart ♥ 5/5 
I regularly use this mascara, I've actually been using one I got free in a magazine here. I rather like it, goes on thick and stands out well. With my dark lashes and tan skin, I need that really. Though, the only thing I would change is the wand, I'd like to see them come in different shapes like other mascaras do! But, the mascara itself is fab.


So, there you have it dolls! Are you ready to try some Soap & Glory treats for yourself!?! Having used many of their items when they first came out, I can see that Soap & Glory have evolved, improved & have kept churning out fantastic products with decent prices :) Have a wonderful Wednesday my sweethearts!!
