Soap & Glory Has Me Sugar Crushing

I’ve been a fan of Soap & Glory’s bath and body products and their cute, pink retro packaging for some time. The products always leave me feeling pampered and smelling soft and sexy from the rose, bergamot and citrus fragrance in the classic Clean On Me Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel, especially when followed by The Righteous Butter Body Lotion. When I saw the new Sugar Crush bath and body line scented with sweet lime, I had to give it a try.

Wow, does the scent pack a punch! I used the Sugar Crush Body Wash followed by the Body Buttercream and the scent brought back flashes of sunny vacations in Vegas drinking lime margaritas poolside. The body wash contains lime oil, kiwi juice water and veggie oil and delivered generous, frothy bubbles and left my skin super soft.

The body buttercream, which has shea and cocoa nut balm and lime and almond oils is thick, but it’s not heavy and left my skin satiny instead of feeling greasy like other popular body butters. The scent is strong at first, but then fades just a bit, which is great ‘cause you don’t want to smell like someone dropped a tropical drink on you. I do still prefer Soap & Glory’s original Pink scent, which is softer and more sophisticated. I can see myself using the Sugar Crush line, which also includes a body scrub, in the summer before heading out for drinks at a tiki bar in a cute, Hawaiian-inspired dress.
