I must admit I can be a little 'safe' when it comes to skincare, and I didn't know a lot about Soap & Glory's facial skincare range (other than that my mum loves the Micellar Water), so I was intrigued when I had the opportunity to try the Peaches and Clean Deep Cleansing Milk* (£8) and Face Soap & Clarity Vitamin C Facial Wash* (£8). In these two products you pretty much have your morning and your evening cleanse.
The Face Soap is a gel formula, so it's something I find refreshing to use in the morning. 'Soap' may be a little misleading as I don't find it harsh or drying at all, perhaps because of the dose of Vitamin C you get with this. However I would probably still say it's more something I'd recommend for combination or oily skin types. This does a really good job of cleaning any dirt, sweat (or even residual makeup from the day before!) and refreshing your skin for the day ahead. It also lathers really nicely, which I wasn't expecting as so often gel facial skincare doesn't really foam. You don't need to use loads and loads of this, just a pea sized amount, or it may dry your skin out a little.
I'm pretty much obsessed with cleansing oils, butters and gels that 'melt' your makeup away so I was really excited about the Cleansing Milk as it's not a formula I've tried before. This definitely didn't disappoint and could well be a favourite out of all the ones I've tried! As much as I love the other kinds of cleanser, I do realise that the slipperiness of an oil-based formula isn't for everyone. If you're not too keen on that then this is the perfect solution as this stays as a lotion/milk and somehow melts your makeup without emulsifying. It's also probably the most gentle and comfortable cleanser of this type I've tried on my eyes. It really does remove everything and leaves my skin feeling soft and plump afterwards.
I really wasn't sure what to expect from Soap & Glory's skincare. I have to confess that the reason I didn't try it sooner was because I thought it might be too fragranced and irritate my skin but it didn't at all. I've been very pleasantly surprised at how much I've enjoyed using these products this past fortnight and I look forward to trying some more bits from their range. The price really is amazing for the huge bottles you get and these have to be two of my favourite budget skincare products right now.
