New Soap & Glory Skincare range!

Soap & Glory lovers rejoice! The company's founder and facialist, Marcia Kilgore, has re-formulated and repackaged the brand's skincare. Not only has the range had a makeover but Marcia has also updated all the product's ingredients and formulations using her skincare knowledge!

I've used a few Soap & Glory skincare products before and am a huge fan, so was very excited about the new launch! Even if you've never tried a product from their skincare range before, what better time to purchase one when they are full of even more skin savvy ingredients!

The brand new skincare collection has started rolling into Boots stores and is available nationwide from September! Here are my thoughts on a few of the products I picked up...

L-R: Puffy Eye Attack eye cream, Glow Job tinted moisturiser, Scrub Atomic face polish, Make Yourself Youthful serum, The Fab Pore mask/peel.

Scrubatomic Amazing Daily Face Polish £9
The first thing to note about the new packaging is that it has been simplified a lot. The entire skincare range has now been split into four categories: For Daily Youth, The Fab Pore, Make Yourself Youthful and The Bright Stuff. Daily Youth are the skincare basics for everyday use, Fab Pore are products used to battle breakouts and combat oily skin, Make Yourself Youthful are anti-aging products, and The Bright Stuff and products to luminise and brighten the skin. All the products come in plain, white packaging (apart from Make Yourself Youthful which come in silver) and the colour of the writing co-ordinates to which range it is from (e.g pink for Daily Youth, green for Fab Pore).

For me, I was a little disappointed at the change in packaging as I think the quirky packaging is what makes Soap & Glory so well loved. But the simplicity does give it more of a sciency feel (if that's the right word to use!) and shows that the skincare is more than just fancy packaging and it really is more chemistry savvy. Plus the boxes that the products come in are still as cute and quirky as ever!

I prefer using scrubs on my face rather than normal face washes as I think they give a better deep clean so I'm glad I can use this face polish daily.

Puffy Eye Attack Turbo-Boost Hydragel £12.50

This eye cream helps to tackle dark circles & puffiness, and helps to firm and rehydrate the eye area. It also boost collagen production so skin looks younger, and soothes and moisturises to keep skin soft and supple.

The Fab Pore 2-in-1 Pore Purifying Mask & Peel £10
This is one of my favourite skincare products by Soap & Glory! From the moment you put it on you can feel it get to work straight away. This is a 15-minute clay facial peel to unclog pores and help 'problem skin' by smoothing, cleansing and purifying. It is formulated for oily/combination skin but people of any skin type can use it weekly for regular maintenance or every now and then if you suffer from a bad break out.

Similarly to Origins' Modern Friction, it is formulated with rice microbeads that smooth the skin and exfoliate. 

Make Yourself Youthful Super Serum £20

This is an anti-wrinkle serum and moisturiser in one so there's no need to double up on products! It helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and rejuvenate tired skin. Ok, so at the age of 21 I don't have any wrinkles to reduce, but I'm determined to prevent skin aging as much as possible and all the long days at work and nights out that I'm still recovering from at university have taken their toll on my skin so I use this serum to keep it in tip top condition and perk my skin up the morning after a long night!

Glow Job Sunkissed Tinted Morning Moisture Flash £11

When I first picked up this "sunkissed" moisturiser I thought it would be a gradual tanner, but it actually transforms from moisturiser into instant self-tan as you apply it! It has tiny little bronzing pigment beads which burst and release a subtle tint of colour when you blend it into the skin.

This tinted moisturiser gives a nice natural finish and sheer coverage so it's perfect to use on a make-up free day if you're still looking a bit pale and could do with a little perking up! I'm going on holiday next month and can't wait to take this with me as I find a lot of my tinted moisturisers and BB Creams may be too pale for me if my skin does tan so this will be perfect to use in the evening instead of foundation. This gives your skin a lovely, subtle glow. The tan is temporary and washes straight off so is ideal for special occasions or if you only need to look tanned for an evening.

As well as tanning, the moisturiser also contains Vitamin B to support the skin's barrier against pollution and irritation, and keeps it super soft!

The new Soap & Glory skincare products are available now from Boots stores.

What do you think of the updates to the Soap & Glory skincare range? Have you used any of these products before?


  1. I love Soap and Glory, they're always such fab products! Definitely agree about being a little disappointed with the packing though, they don't seem quite as cheeky and tongue in cheek as they did before which I always loved! Think a trip to Boots is in order though! xx

  2. Ah I was just in Boots today but didn't go and look at skincare but I'm going to have to pick up the fab pore. Totes agree about the packaging, such a shame.
