Wow, I know this scrub gets a lot of love online, but I didn’t realise how yummy this was until I indulged in my very first tub a couple of weeks ago! Rebranded as part of the ‘Smoothie Star’ line, The Breakfast Scrub has also been repackaged to fit in-line with other Soap & Glory pot scrubs.
As you take off the lid, you instantly get hit with the yummy smell of maple syrup, it seriously takes a lot of will power not to scoop you hand in and taste it! This, plus bananas, almond and honey extracts, oats and golden sugar, makes its seriously delectable and reminds me of eating an American-style pancake breakfast, I am salivating at the thought!
Now, I am quite fussy when it comes to scrubs, I like them to be quite abrasive so you can actually feel them working but not too course that it hurts. I also cannot bear wishy washy scrubs with only a few grains in it, so that you can hardly feel it on your skin. This fitted the bill perfectly for me and has a great texture from the organic cupuaçu bio scrubs, oats, sugar and shea butter that really gets to work on any dry patches giving your skin a great buff!
It initially has quite a sticky texture (i guess from the honey?), but as it is worked into the skin and washed off in the shower it just leaves the skin lovely and smooth. The glycerin in the scrub, acts as a hydrator too, so that your skin feels soft rather than stripped when you come out of the shower. The Smoothie Star range also contains a body cream and body lotion so you can follow the scrub with a delicious dose of moisture too!
A gorgeous scrub, at a great price (£8) and even better is that Soap & Glory is nearly always on 3 for 2 in Boots. I would just like to see it in a travel sized tube, so I can take it on my holidays with me!
