Soap & Glory Once Upon A Lime

Soap & Glory Once Upon A Lime
I was lucky enough to receive the Soap & Glory Once Upon A Lime gift set for Christmas, so I thought I'd review it. I'm not sure if the set is still available at Boots, but you can purchase all the products separately. So, overall I think this set is brilliant, it's everything you need to take care of your body. Everything in the set has a beautiful lime scent, which lingers after use.

Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash
The body wash from this set is lovely, it has a great lather and the smells lingers in the bathroom for a while after use. There's not really much to say about shower gels, except this one smells so good! As with the rest of the set it has a lime scent, but it washes off with the product. It's quite creamy, therefore moisturizing, which is always a good thing. You can buy it here for £6.50 

Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub
It took me a few goes to get used to this product, and it's my least favourite from the set. It's like a hard gel in the pot, which doesn't really melt into my skin, it just leaves a film. From other reviews I've read, I can't figure out whether I've got a dodgy one or if it's meant to be a hard gel in the container? Other than that, it's a really good scrub, gets off the dead skin perfectly, not too grainy or too soft. I mainly use it on the drier area's, such as my elbows and knees, and it's doing a good job of removing the dead skin and moisturizing the areas. You can buy it here for £8.00.

Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Buttercream
The body buttercream is by far the best product in the set! It's really moisturizing on the skin, and even though I've only used it a few times I can already feel a difference to my skin. My skin's now more hydrated and smooth, it's a perfect moisturizer for the winter as it's thick but not greasy. A little goes a long way with this product, so it's definitely worth the £10.50 price tag. You can buy it here.

Overall, I do really like the set, it came in a lovely box which I'm now using to house new products. A little goes a long way with all the products, so they're worth their prices. You might even be able to get them 3 for 2 at Boots. 

Thanks for reading.

I Don't Know What To Say?

As this is my official blog post, I'm having a hard time thinking about what to write. I wasn't sure whether to dive right in with a review or take the time to introduce myself to you. I think I'll go with the latter and save the review for later on.
I wrote a short post last month whilst I was setting up my blog, just saying who I am and when I was going to start posting, but in case you didn't get to read it, I'm Jasmine, I'm 16, currently studying Beauty Therapy, and I've started this blog purely because I love all things beauty (hence the name, hehe). And, as promised, January 1st, my first post. Although its not exactly beauty related, I thought it would be nice to introduce myself to you, also I can't say that every single post I write will be about beauty, but the majority will be. I'm not yet sure what days I'll post, but it will definitely be twice a week for now. 
I think I'll leave it there for now, thank you for reading and look out for my next post!
