The scrub of your life

Soap & Glory The Scrub of Your Life - Boots - £7
Botanics Hip and Thigh Body Brush - Boots - £7.50 (now £3.75)

Being one of the 50-80% of people to be plagued with Keratosis Pilaris (red, raised bumps on the back of arms) I've attacked my skin with countless amounts of products from high street to higher end, products recommended in pharmacies as well as prescription products. I've searched online for years to find a 'miracle' product that will banish those horrid little bumps and I've been embarrassed by them for as long as I can remember. That was until I discovered this; Soap and Glory's 'The Scrub of Your Life'.

Firstly the packaging. Soap and Glory's statement pink shade made this stand out for me, along with many other of their products which I've loved since the day I got my hands on them. I'm the biggest sucker for cute packaging and waste money buying products just because they look nice, oops! Soap and Glory always have such strong claims on their products which, in general, can sometimes put me off because I'll try it once, not see results and therefore not use it again. This scrub claims that elbows will become silky, shins will be shimmery, bumps from the back of arms will be gone & that the scrub can conquer all, so I had pretty high hopes for it!

The scent is, of course, so delicious that you want to eat it with their statement 'Pink' fragrance and the texture is not too harsh for a scrub. The pink scrubbing beads are just right to exfoliate the skin whilst also turning into a foam leaving skin feeling so soft and smooth. 

I try to use this a few times a week on my arms using this body brush by Botanics, using circular motions to also boost circulation. I also use it all over to exfoliate before applying fake tan. It's just one of those products that I will always keep coming back to and, for me, worth every penny. Although it can't remove the red dots on the back of my arms, it completely removes the lumps and bumps which I have been so paranoid about for years. I'd really recommend this to anyone in the same position with KP. 

Has anyone tried a similar product that they would recommend for annoying little bumps? Or does anyone use this and like it as much as I do? Let me know! xo


  1. I absolutely love soap & glory stuff, I'm a massive fan of flake away, its an amazing but gentle scrub! It smells sooo good too & I agree the packaging is fab :)

    1. I've never tried flake away but if it's as good as the rest of their scrubs then I'm sure it's great! I really want to try more of their cosmetics especially the blusher and the luminizing face powder.

  2. I absolutely love you for this post!
    I used to use Flake Away by Soap & Glory for my KP and it was great but I kept getting horrible rashes after, this was because it contains almond extracts and I'm highly allergic to nuts.. oops haha.
    But, my point of this comment is, The Scrub of Your Life doesn't contain any type of nuts so you've just introduced me to my new favourite scrub, thank you!
