Stuff that smells good…

Not the most creative title for a post, but the reason I wanted to blog about these is exactly what the title says. These are products I like because they smell good.

Both of these Soap & Glory items came in the big gift box that was available half price before Christmas…which I did gift to myself (and bought one for my sister too). And I know it’s no shocker that Soap&Glory products smell good, it’s kind-of their thing… but these two (in my opinion) smell especially good…

Smoothie Star is a body milk, which normally I find too light at this time of the year – but this one is actually really good. Thicker than a milk, and really does pack a moisturising punch. With ingredients such as almond, cocoa, yogurt, oat and honey it’s not surprising when I say it smells good enough to eat.

It’s creamy but soaks in quickly and smells SO GOOD. But the scent doesn’t last, which is probably a good thing or I suspect random strangers may try to lick me on the tube.

As for the Peaches and Clean 4 in 1 wash-off deep cleansing milk (what a mouthful) it smells of peaches and cream. Which fist thing in the morning is such a refresher. I normally don’t love cleansing milks, tending to prefer either a cleansing oil or something that foams – but because this is one that I can wash off with water I am really liking it. I do still remove make-up first with my Bioderma and then use this, but it’s good! Much better than I expected it would be. And the smell just makes it a joy to use!

Does smell influence how you feel about a product?

Smothie Star (£10) from Boots and Peaches and Clean (£7) from Boots.

    I’ve always heard that the Soap & Glory products smell amazing, cream and peaches?! That’s just too good, I’m addicted to peaches! I love the scent (and I love to eat them hahaha). Sad thing is that S&G is not available in my country :( grr.

    Great post!

    I like the sound of the cleansing milk! A nice follow up to makeup removal, and I’m sure the scent makes nighttime skin care that much nicer :)

    I love Soap and glory products too, it’s such a great price when it goes on sale in boots. My favourite atm is the mist spray.

    I love Peaches and Clean – though it always reminds me of the book Holes by Louis Sachar in which the denouement involves peaches.

    I had been umming and ahing about buying it, and then it being in the big gift box was amazing :) I haven’t used Smoothie Star yet, though.

    I got the soap and glory box as well and the body milk is my favourite soap and glory product ever! I love the smell of peaches and cream but I feel like it leaves a kind of residue on my skin. (even after washing it off) Worth keeping it for the smell though :P

    I love Peaches and Clean. I’ve got 3 cleansers on the go- that one, Elemis and Murad. I like using Peaches and Clean at night, it feels so moisturising.

    I’ve got 3 cleansers on the go at the moment- this one, Elemis and Murad. I love using Peaches and Clean in the evening, it feels so moisturising.

    The Smoothie Star body milk sounds amazing, I’m usually more of a body butter kind of girl but I love that is has it’s own pump plus the scent sounds heavenly.

    *Runs to Boots!*

    I just started using both of these this week, and man alive, they smell delicious! Do the business too.

    I’ve never owned anything from soap and glory although I’ve always wanted to, I just keep forgetting to pick some stuff up!

    I love the smell of all soap and glory products, and find they last for ages! :)
