mega review! : Soap and Glory Shower House Set

Hey lovlies!

Sorry for the slow posting. This was originally going to be a YouTube video because its quicker and its more fun I suppose! But unfortunately I'm still in bed ill so i managed to drag myself out of bed to take photos of the products and write this review so here goes (:

I don't know about you, but I'm a total Soap and Glory whore! haha! I LOVE the brand and with the exception of hair stuff, the products. Anyway I know some people love it and some people hate it but I'm a devout fan, and so for xmas my boyfriend got me the "Shower House" gift box. The vintage style packaging is just the cutest ever and one of the reasons I love it so much.

Firstly, the body brush that's in the set is so cute even if it was rubbish, i'd still use it! No just kidding lol! But anyway, its great for dry body brushing to get rid of dead cells and get the blood flowing and since i've started using it in the mornings, I've noticed my skin is much smoother and fake tan goes on great!

The second thing is the little shower cap! I can't say if it keeps your hair bone dry yet, as I haven't had a chance to use it yet but it actually reminds me of those 1950's syncronised swimmers? If you know what I mean? I love that style so I think it'll be a winner for me. If you've tried it let me know if it works well, because its kind of silky and not plastic? So I don't know how well it does in water?

Okay now the "tools" are out the way, I can start on the actual products. The first is the Clean On Me shower gel. Isn't the quirky name just great? Haha I'm easily amused. Anyway this stuff smells AMAZING and it has a built in moisturiser too so its super good for your skin. You don't get as foamy a lather with this as other gels, but it makes you feel really clean and soft after using it, and I haven't had breakouts or anything so I love it. I used it the other day when I ran out of shaving foam for my legs and it was perfect too, but just for the record, I think its better to stick to shaving foam! It's also a really big bottle so I think it should last a while.

The next little bottle of loveliness is Girligo Moisturising Mist. It's supposed to be used after a shower but I tend to use it every time I feel my skin's a bit dry. Again it smells lovely and its not greasy at all. I think I'd have preferred a bigger bottle personally cos I'm greedy ;) Although I dont use it straight after I shower, I keep it in my bag when I'm out and about and use it on my elbows and hands on the go.

Righteous Butter was my favefavefave in this little set! The cream is so thick and buttery its really good for deep moisturising. Some people don't like thick creams which I can understand, but I personally love it once a week as a deep moisturiser. It can leave a bit of a greasy feeling for a bit but it eventually soaks in and if you put it on your hands, pop some cotton gloves off and go to sleep, in the morning your hands are gorgeousssssss!

The last product is the Soaper Star Body Bar. At first for some reason I thought it was a bath bomb! So being a tube, I ran a bath, got all my candles out and a book, then opened it up and realised it was soap! Gutted! Hahaa! I personally haven't used it because my skin doesnt do well with soap, it dries my skin out...but my mum used it and said it left her feeling squeaky clean and didn't make her break out or anything.

On the whole I was really really pleased with this cute set and just deepened my love for Soap and Glory! Obviously these are my opinions and people may disagree and I'm totally open to that! Everyone's different and some things that are fine for some are a skin complaint waiting to happen for others ... so tell me your experience!

Apologies for the mega post ;)
