soap & glory hand food

Hi everyone!

Today's post is about something I have grown to love, but definitely wasn't love at first use - the Soap & Glory Hand Food.

Soap & Glory Hand Food

I know this is one of the most raved about hand creams in the history of blogging, but it's taken me a while to come round to it. I have been receiving the S&G Christmas sets for quite a few years now, so have had lots of tubes of this. It's been mentioned on the blog before but in general it's just been "It's okay".

However, over the last few months I have been reaching for this a lot more. For some reason I am finding that my hands - more specifically the skin around my nails - are really dry in the morning. Only the morning though, not sure why. So I have been keeping a tube of this hand cream on my desk at work, and applying it when I get in every morning.

I still find that it doesn't sink in quite as quickly as I'd like, but it is doing a great job of keeping my hands from feeling all tight and dry, and the smell is lovely. The bottle says it contains marshmallow which is probably a large part of why I like it. A little really goes a long way with this, and it keeps my hands soft for hours, so a tube lasts for a long time, which makes it great value for money.

Overall, although I'm not sure I'll ever be a complete hand cream lover, this is a great one and I've been enjoying having it to hand at work every day.

Are you one of the many, many fans of this hand cream?

the best shower gel ever

Hi everyone!

I don't normally care much about shower gel. As long as it cleans me and doesn't smell bad, I'm happy to use whatever. So I never expected to be posting about a shower gel on my blog, but I just had to show some love for one that I finished up recently...

Treaclemoon Marshmallow Hearts

This is Marshmallow Hearts from Treaclemoon. I wasn't really expecting much but this is incredible! It smells so dreamy, like cake frosting, sweets and everything delicious! If you're not a fan of sweet scents you would definitely hate this, but for me it smells absolutely amazing. I am so sad that it's run out! I don't really have much to say in all honesty, I just wanted to recommend this shower gel to anyone who loves anything sweet smelling.

They have plenty of other scents which look delicious and I would love to try, but I'm not sure anything can beat the marshmallow scent for me! 

Have you tried this, or any others from the range?
