Soap and Glory

I promised that I’d be reviewing some Soap & Glory products a good while ago but ended up deciding to just lump everything together into one post, and so here we are.

I really don’t like this brand… I always get suckered into buying their products based on the adorable packaging (all pink and cutesy, with vintage glam pin-up models), funny product names, and tongue-in-cheek blurbs and excerpts, only to end up being disappointed by the performance of the actual product. To be fair, the products generally do what they’re supposed to do, just not in the way that I prefer. I also find most of their scents to be downright vile, particularly Original Pink fragrance which seems to be featured in most of their products. Although the Original Pink fragrance is loved by many, I find it too floral-y and perfume-y for my taste. Their prices aren’t exactly budget-friendly either, especially when you factor in the sub-par performance of most of their products.

I’ve mostly tried some Bath & Body Products, some Skincare Products, but aside from a single Lipgloss (purchased online via Drugstore.com) I haven’t really delved much into their Beauty Products. I’ve also got a handful of Minis (from the KD 1/000 “bargain bins” at Boots), and some products that came in a Holiday Set (that they come out with during every Holiday Season). So, I feel like I have a good selection of products here to form a valid opinion. You can purchase Soap & Glory products at Boots.

Bath and Body Works Collective Spring Haul

SAM_2206

I was all out of B&BW hand soaps so I decided to visit the Souq Sharq branch to replenish my supply when I saw them stocking the shelves and everything looked so bright and colorful that I couldn’t resist picking up a handful of minis. I’ve separated them by collection with the Hawaii collection on the far left and the Southern Collection on the far right. Also included in the Hawaii Collection were gorgeous frosted candles but I didn’t get any this time around.

Pond’s Eye Cream

Back Camera

As I’ve said before, since I’m getting older now, I feel like I should look into certain skincare which is why I purchased this Pond’s Age Miracle Dual Eye Therapy UV Eye Cream (phew, that was a mouthful) from our local supermarkert (ja3miya, co-op, drugstore, etc…) I will be the first person to admit that I can be quite lazy at times.
