Hi everyone! For some reason I am feeling super festive already this year. To that end, I thought I would write a couple of posts on Christmas gift ideas for those of you who like to plan ahead. Today I'll be talking about a set from Soap & Glory called Your Own Sweet Lime!
The gift set comes in a really cute circular silver cardboard tub, with a stripy red peppermint lid. I actually keep nail art supplies in a Soap & Glory gift set box from a couple of years ago, and I plan to keep this one too as they're great for storage and look really good too.
As you may have guessed by the name, this set contains items scented with Soap & Glory's delicious lime range called Sugar Crush. For £10, you get:
Sugar Crush Hand Food (50ml)
Sugar Crush Body Wash (75ml)
Sugar Crush Body Scrub (50ml)
Sugar Crush Body Buttercream (50ml)
Sugar Crush Hand Food (link to original)
This body wash is creamy and foams up easily, especially when combined with the pouffe/Body Polisher included in the set. That delicious lime scent lingers for hours when I use this, and it also makes great bubble bath mixture!
This is the only item in the Sugar Crush range I've tried before. The scrub is nice and rough and has a moisturising, buttery base. The scent of this scrub is probably the yummiest one in the range as it has that buttery kick that really makes me want to eat it! This is my favourite scrub Soap & Glory make to date - you can read my roundup post of all of their scrubs if you want to know more
I was a little nervous about using this as I generally find things that describe themselves as body butters way too heavy. However, this is almost like a lotion/body cream hybrid so it's lighter than you'd expect while still being very moisturising. The scent is delicious of course and it doesn't take too long to sink in. I'd definitely repurchase this if I didn't have a shamefully large backlog of body moisturisers to use!
I love this gift set - it's a great way to try everything from the Sugar Crush range. If you have a friend who loves sweet citrus scents and a bit of pampering, this is a sure winner! Boots always have offers on too so it's unlikely you'll need to pay full price, which isn't even that expensive in the first place. This gets a huge thumbs up from me as everything about it is lovely, even the punny name :P
The next Sugar Crush item released has to be a perfume - pretty please, Soap & Glory! Do you like Sugar Crush? Will you be popping this set on your Christmas list?
