The Claims
Get fresher, smoother and softer skin with fig powder, pumice, peppermint oil. lemonade tree liquid, orange waterjuice and vitaminballs (A,C,E). Scented with our new Fruitigo fragrance. 

The Reality

I'm just going to be honest and come out and say I really don't like the Soap & Glory Pulp Friction Foamy Fruity Scrub. The reasons being I don't like the foamy texture. If you like an exfoliator that foams up then this may be the product for you but for me I prefer a scrub to be a scrub and I don't need it to foam up.

In terms of the ex-foliating abilities pulp friction does an okay job. However I prefer a scrub that's moisturising and leaves that oil residue on your skin, which this one does not do and it's not particularly moisturising either.

In addition I'm not a fan of the scent of this product. I do like the original Soap & Glory scent but this scrub has the "fruitigo" fragrance. I find scents hard to describe but to me it smells like figs and yoghurt mixed together, which I don't like.

Furthermore the ingredients list of the pulp friction scrub scares me! There are just too many chemical names that I don't understand. I have been actively paying more attention to the ingredients of the products I'm buying and seeing big ingredients lists filled with chemical names that I don't understand reinforces my decision to move towards natural products. 

Ingredients aside, the product doesn't work for me and that's not to say it won't work for you, personally I won't be repurchasing. 

The Packaging
I love Soap & Glory's fun bright pink packaging. I like that the scrub comes in a squeezy tube, so I don't have to dip my hands into the product. The packaging is the only thing I like about this product. 

The Price
Boots: £8/250ml 

The Ultimate Question: Would I Repurchase?

The Overall Score: 1/5

Have you tried the Soap & Glory Pulp Friction Foamy Fruity Body Scrub? What are your thoughts?

  1. I love that you guys are being honest when you review products. I too have changed to vegie beauty only, which was quite difficult actually. I mean first looking through all the products I had, checking if they're veggie (which is complicated too) and if not, find a substitute. My biggest losses so far have been Aussie hairproducts and Max Factor mascara :( In Europe it is no longer allowed to produce cosmetics and beauty products with help from animal testing which probably makes it a bit easier here.

    You guys totally inspired me to do this and I am very glad! I will probably be doing some posts about it in the near future and if you don't mind I would love to link to your blog since you sort of gave me the idea in the first place.
