The Soap and Glory Flake Away Scrub is a product I’ve heard a lot of people rave about. Not heard of it? Well this is a body polish that contains Shea Butter, Sugar and Peach Seed Powder. The product is available to purchase from the Boots website and in selected stores where a 300ml tub will set you back £8.00. Some might say this is a tad pricey but it is good to keep in mind that this is a big tub and it is sure to last you well. Anyway, for me exfoliating is an essential step in my skincare routine. It helps the skin with the natural process of Desquamation. What is that you ask? Well it is simply the process of shedding dead skin cells. As well as getting rid of dry dead skin, by exfoliating you are also getting rid of excess oil and thus in turn reducing the risk of in grown hairs occurring and lets face it, this is a great thing as ingrown hairs can be painful and annoying. So, to use this product I apply a small pea size amount to small areas of my body, just as is recommended. I don’t apply to my entire body in one go as I find this causes wastage and I don’t get quite as many uses. Once on the skin I then like to apply the scrub in circular motions. I like to pay particular attention to those areas that are more prone to dry skin such as my knees and elbows. So what is the scrub actually like? Well in terms of appearance the polish is a sort of unexciting shade of beige however, the lovely and classic Original Pink fragrance that the scrub is scented with definitely makes up for this. In terms of the texture the scrub is quite finely milled but it definitely isn’t the most finely milled scrub I’ve come across as it is still a little on the gritty side. Because of the product texture I find the polish to be highly effective in terms of removing those dead skin cells. After use I also find that my skin is lovely and smooth and definitely flake free. Basically I really like Flake Away. It is effective and gets the job done. It is also the perfect product for removing stubborn fake tan that other scrubs struggle to remove. Oh and did I mention the adorable packaging? Much like the case with the majority of Soap and Glory products, the product comes in adorable, quirky and slightly retro feeling packaging. This really does set the product apart from other body polishes in my bathroom making it really stand out. All in all Soap and Glory Flake Away gets a big thumbs up from me and I will definitely be repurchasing another tub when I eventually run out.
