Review: Soap & Glory Scrub of Your Life

You’re likely tired of reading about how much I love this brand, but… I LOVE THIS BRAND.

This scrub is another product I decided to bring with me on this trip. I don’t normally bring body scrubs because they’re usually in big, bulky tubs; who wants to haul them around? Even if I wanted to bring one to Michigan, Dan’s shower is tiny and there wouldn’t be space for any of the tubs I have in my shower at home. This is in a tube. It is wonderful.

Pros: Cute packaging. Smells good because it’s the typical Soap & Glory pink scent. Tube! It lathers nicely so I don’t have to use a separate body wash. It’s also really scrubby; I’ve had scrubs in the past that didn’t actually seem to make a difference in the texture of my skin because they were just too gentle. When I use a scrub I want to feel it.

Cons: Because it’s in a tube you get less product than the tubs, and it’s almost as expensive. For example, the Breakfast Scrub from this brand is $15 for 10.1 oz., which is roughly $1.49 per ounce. This product is $12 for 6.7 oz., which is $1.79 per ounce. Sure it’s only 30 cents per ounce, and this is assuming that I pay full price (which I never do), but it still annoys me.

Also, pro tip: don’t use this on a sunburn. It hurts.

Have you tried this? Do you have a favorite body scrub?

    Question, do those scrubby bits dissolve? The scrub still lists polyethylene as a major ingredient (big component of plastic microbeads) but those are supposed to be banned now. I’ve emailed them, but I’m sure they don’t want to hear from me, hah.

      Oh that’s a really good question. I’m not sure. I (naively?) assumed that since those beads are illegal now I didn’t have to worry about it.

        I mean, it’s banned, it shouldn’t be something we have to worry about anymore.

        I emailed and tweeted them. I checked and its US and UK banned, so they have no excuse. It’s right after Earth Day. I’m not playing lmao.

        Get ’em girl. I’ll start paying more attention to this from now on. I don’t want to contribute to the already horrendous plastic problem in the water.

        They’ve told me that the scrub doesn’t contain microbeads or polyethylene, and sent a little ramble about how acrylates copolymer isn’t a microbead and has been deemed safe for their use.

        Which is a whole other thing, but I guess they just don’t update their ingredients which is GREAT.

    I love the scrubs from Shea Moisture. They are very exfoliating and make my skin feel super soft.
