Review: Soap & Glory, Flake Away

28 Sep

Many beauty guru have been talking about the brand Soap & Glory, and it seems like most of the reviews are positive, but we do not have them here in Hong Kong. So I was looking forward to visiting Boots in Bangkok and get my hands on some of Soap & Glory’s products.

I have been looking for a body scrub to replace my favourite St. Ives In-shower Exfoliating Body Polish, which had been sadly discontinued. I tried the Champneys Spa Treatments Citrus Blush Body Scrub, and I really hate it. When the body scrub touches my hair, they leave my hair feeling dry and I could not comb through. It also leave my skin feeling weird, not oily but you feel like there’s a film on my skin. So I went a little crazy with body scrub, and let’s start with Flake Away first.

Soap & Glory Flake Away

Soap & Glory Flake Away (395 THB)
* Bought them when they had a Buy-1-Get-1-Free offer.

The body polish is pretty thick and feels grainy, but not harsh at all. Just rub the product into your skin, and the grains will dissolve gradually. The smell is amazing too!

After washing off the body polish, the skin feels very smooth and soft. My skin feels moisturized too, you don’t really need to apply body lotion, unless you have super dry skin.

I would definitely recommend buying this, especially when they are doing a special offer!

Bangkok Shopping Haul

26 Sep

Sorry for abandoning my blog for more than 1 year. To “celebrate” the re-activating my blog, I would like to share with you all my recent 3 days 2 nights trip to Bangkok.

It’s my first time to Thailand; I had a great time, but didn’t buy a lot, as I was with my parents and was busy sightseeing. The following is most of the things I bought:

Thailand Food Haul

Just randomly bought some Thailand instant noodles, biscuit and snacks. My mom also bought some Thai seasonings, so that she can try making real Thai food at home.

As we can’t get Soap & Glory in Hong Kong, I went a bit crazy, especially because they were doing a Buy-1-Get-1-Free offer at Boots.

– Hand Food (295 THB)
– Heel Genius (295 THB)
– Scrub ’em and Leave ’em (395 THB)

Elephants...

After this trip, I found that I’m a bit obsessed with elephants, and couldn’t resist looking at things with elephant prints. In the end, I got 6 elephant postcards at Chatuchak Weekend Market (5 THB for 6 postcards) and a NaRaYa key holder (100 THB).
