is on offer at my local Boots. It is all a bit more expensive than the very basic stuff I usually use - but does look tempting.
Any posititive or negative comments - particularly about the skincare?

Cant comment on the skincare really, I use the Clean, Girls shower creme which is a bit more than a fiver but lasts ages, and is an excellent for leg shaving and generally making my smell delicious smile And the body butter is a tenner but is lovely stuff, and I can use it on my face too as an overnight deep moisterising treatment.

I have tried the eyebrow pencil too, and this kept braking and was hard to sharpen, but the colour was really good.

I think all there stuff is very high quality, great value particularly when its on offer. Love the Scrub Actually and body butter, also think the Fab Pore hot cloth cleanser is amazing.

I looked at Soap and Glory products but they do seem to be full of parabens and other nasties, which put me off.

I love soap and glory, got the massive box full f stuff at xmas and most of it is still going so defianlty last well.

Love it! I have the facial wash, the make-up wipes, the eye cream and the Wish Upon a Jar moisturiser. smile

Very impressed!

But the smell....the stuff I had was so pungent and perfumy. Yak.

Dillydollydaydream Thu 04-Aug-11 16:02:45

I too got a massive hatbox type gift box for Christmas an have been wading through all the bottles of lotions and potions!
I like the flake away (?) exf

Exfoliator. Leaves my skin lovely and smooth. The body butter is lovely too, ooh and the hand food hand cream!

prolificwillybreeder Thu 04-Aug-11 20:14:28

The daily youth 6 in 1 moisturiser is just fab!

TattyDevine Thu 04-Aug-11 20:26:03

I like their foot file and today I bought a little exfoliaty mitt thing for a pittance (£2?)) which was unscratchy yet massagy and nice and I recommend it! grin

I love the smell of it - the mist you madly scent on the body butter is gorgeous - really nice product too. I also got a soap and glory hatbox gift and wading through all the different stuff. Hand Food very nice and love the sexy motherpucker lip gloss - really plumping and warm!!

The perfume is lovely

happy2bhomely Thu 04-Aug-11 22:36:33

I am sitting here with No clogs allowed face mask on right now! I also like the hot cloth cleanser(nice herbal smell) and wish upon a jar (amazing on my first fine lines) I use clarins pure melt gel in the evening though because the hot cloth cleanser doesn't remove eye make up. I like the body sprays too. Not keen on the motherpluckers.

5GoMadOnAZ650 Thu 04-Aug-11 22:42:24

I love most of the range except the bronzing moisturiser (David Dickinson look with the teeniest blob!) and mother plucker lip gloss really stings my lips badly and made the inside of my lips peel away shock

peeriebear Thu 04-Aug-11 22:44:37

I love the scent- I have a few products I got for Christmas- but the scent is so strong, almost overpowering. I feel like it's too concentrated to be doing my skin any good IYKWIM.

The shampoo and conditioner are awful but their shower cream is very nice, nice smell that really lingers on the skin.

fivegomadindorset Thu 04-Aug-11 22:48:14

A tad overpowering, will not be buying it again.

thenightsky Thu 04-Aug-11 22:54:42

Scrub Your nose in It is fab.

brighthair Thu 04-Aug-11 22:56:33

Love the clean on me wash as it got rid of the bumps on my upper arms
Just seen they do an SPF 25 facial moisturiser which I want to try

pink4ever Thu 04-Aug-11 23:35:37

I was conned into buying it after seeing rave reviews on here but have to say I dont rate it. Definately a case of style over substance imo. Body butter was ok but not as good as palmers. Body wash was crap as was the glow body lotion-weird sparkle to it and not moisturising enough.
The only thing I liked and have bought again was the body spray-the glamazon one. Very sexy scent and lasts well for the price.
