Soap and Glory ~ Flake Away

Don’t you find when you read raving reviews on items you’ve never tried you always wonder is it really that good?  When I finally decided to buy a raved about item and found out it really is that good to be raved about.  So I thought I would have a rave too!

Soap and Glory’s Flake Away is that raved item.  I only bought this about a week ago at lunch time as I was on a lunch time emergency gym bag essentials mission at Boots.  I was about to pay for my hair bands and my bottle of water when in typical Angela style, I got distracted by the little tempt you to buy baskets - you know the ones by the tills.  Tempted I was, and I’m glad I was.

This is the mini 50ml travel size version which costs £2.50, not the full sized 300ml pot which is £7.00.  I like that some companies offer mini versions of the best selling items, it's so cute and handy for travelling.  It's also great if you're one of those buyers who has a tendency to not finish the big pots.

So the product itself is sooooo yummy.  I sniffed this in line at the tills and that's what swayed me to pop it in my basket.  It smells delicious, you just want to dip your spoon into it like a scrumptious dessert.

Applying this to dry skin and in circular motions the peach seeds gently exfoliate the skin whilst the shea butter and the almond oil soften and moisturise.  Once the skin is rinsed and dried you can really feel the results of this beauty. . . the words wow and O.M.G come to mind.  You’ll be left with the lingering trade mark Soap and Glory smell and the smoothest skin - the words baby soft need a honourable mention here.

I have the tendency to have sensitive skin sometimes and it can become blotchy if it does not like a product.  Thankfully I've not had this happen with this, so Flake Away has definitely passed the sensitive skin test.

To sum up I’m so glad I spotted this when I was in the line, when I’ve finished the small pot I will be purchasing myself a full size pot.  I will keep the small pot so I can decant some into the small pot so I have some for the gym as it seems to be my third home!

Have you tried this yet?  What's your favourite Soap and Glory items?
