first impressions : soap & glory 'soaper star' gift set

Despite them probably being one of the most popular beauty brands around, I've not really tried many of Soap & Glory's products. In fact I think the only one I've ever owned is Hand Food which impressed me so you'd think I'd have branched into some of the other items. Not that it matters now though as I received the rather generous SOAPER STAR gift set for Christmas which has given me an amazing selection to try out. I don't feel like I've used any of them quite enough to give a full review yet so thought I'd give my first impressions instead.

The SOAPER STAR gift set contains a CLEAN ON ME shower gel 500ml, THE SCRUB OF YOUR LIFE body buffer 200ml, THE RIGHTEOUS BUTTER body butter 200ml, HEEL GENIUS foot cream 50ml, HAND FOOD hand cream 50ml, a body polisher and even a pair of fluffy socks!

I'll start with my favourite thing out of the ones I've used so far: THE SCRUB OF YOUR LIFE body buffer which is, quite frankly, blooming amazing. I've used it twice now when showering and it leaves your skin SO soft it's ridiculous. There aren't many things better than skin that feels soft, refreshed and extra squeaky clean. I think I'll probably stick to using this a couple of times a week as I've never been sure on how many times you're supposed to use a body scrub in all honesty. Along with this I've also been using the CLEAN ON ME shower gel daily (partnered with the body polisher of course!) which is just as lovely. My favourite thing about this one is the pump meaning you can get the perfect amount of product. I also love how all of these products have the same signature S&G "Pink" fruity scent because it means you don't have to worry about getting a mismatch of smells all over you. I was a bit worried that it might become overpowering but I personally find that they leave a subtle scent that lasts all day, even if you've ended up using two or three products.

Next up is THE RIGHTEOUS BUTTER body butter which I've tried once after a shower so far. I'm terribly lazy when it comes to moisturising my body so usually prefer the spray-on type that you can get. Again this product smells gorgeous and it sank into my skin very quickly. I probably will use it again in future as it'd be a shame for it to go to waste but I think I'll still stick to my personal preference of a spray moisturiser purely for my own convenience. As I mentioned near the start of this post I've used and liked the HAND FOOD hand cream in the past and I'm still liking it this time round. The size of the tube in this gift set is perfect for popping into your handbag incase your hands need a bit of TLC when you're out and about. The only product I'm yet to use is the HEEL GENIUS foot cream. I think what I'm going to do one night soon is slather a good amount on my little feet then pop on the fluffy socks and leave them to bask in the goodness overnight. I'm not sure if that's what the socks are intended for but hey, it's as good a purpose as any!

I think this is the perfect gift set as it's got a fabulous mix of products. It could make a great starter set for someone who's been wanting to try out this brand, or even just a great present for someone who is already a bit of a Soap & Glory fanatic!

Have you tried any Soap & Glory products? Which are your favourites?
