Soap and Glory 'A Brush For Greatness' | Review


Now I know what your all thinking, 'why not just get a Clarisonic Mia Jess?', well whilst its currently on the top of my wishlist and every penny I earn is going towards it, I am yet to use what is considered to be the best facial exfoliating solution out there. So for all those who don't have or use the Clarisonic, stay tuned for I have purchased a nifty, money saving (slightly downgraded) version.

My recent mission when entering Boots was to buy a facial exfoliating brush, but not this one. The buy 1 get 1 half price offer on all Boots Botanics products was beaconing me like a white chocolate magnum, but I couldn't help but want to try Soap and Glory's rendition of an otherwise mundane exfoliating tool. Now, judging by the name of this blog, you can tell I love pink, so as often as I try to stay clear of purchasing due to aesthetics, in this case the cute baby pink colour, unfortunatly this time I relented. But it wasn't just the colour that I was drawn to. As a long term soap and glory user (mainly due to birthdays and Christmas, you know what I mean), I have grown to not only like but adore this brand for its always been a reliable source of a morning glow or a sweet citrusy scent throughout the day. So for only £6.50 I bought it and eagerly rushed home to try it.

The first thing I noticed was it's not only got a white set of bristles, but it's donned with a silicone brush head on the reverse side said to be a nice massaging tool to 'stimulate circulation'. The white bristles are sturdy and neat but not to harsh on the skin. Plus, the delicate massaging tool is so smooth and relaxing I could sit there massaging my face for hours. As recommended (but I would of done this anyway), I use it once a day only as part of my evening Skin care routine (which I will be posting soon), mainly because I see no need to thoroughly exfoliate my face in the morning when theres hardly any dirt to remove in the first place. So, for an evening pamper I like to use this to literally 'take the day off' of my face. And boy does it do just that. Again, not having used the Clarisonic Mia, I don't know how this compares to the results you'll obtain, but what I do know is that after just my second use of this brush I noticed a huge difference.

A few pumps of cleanser on the brush and warm water on your face, going all over your face in a circular motion, just once, should do the trick. However, if you do know of any 'problem areas' on your visage then feel free to go over them more than once (thats my T-zone for me). Then a splash of warm water and a hot flannel takes off the remaining cleanser, and your done. Massaging is optional, but I always like it, I feel it soothes the face after a slightly more abrasive cleanse before bed. Then I'd normally continue with my routine using a toner, serum and a moisturiser to finish. And that quick routine really does pay off; it keeps your pores unclogged and your skin smooth and ensures easy make-up application.


So for all of you out there looking to purchase a nifty little tool to exfoliate your face with, thats not a Clarisonic Mia for whatever reason you have, look no further.

This brush is available from here or your local boots store should stock it.
