Budget Beauty #2

Soap and Glory products are my Christmas bargain purchase every year. In the Boots sales, I always buy a bulk load that lasts me months and this time was no exception. In fact, the reason this review is so delayed is because I bought such a big set that I didn’t have enough room in my suitcase to bring it back with me in January, so had to wait until I was back in the UK again last month and had more luggage space.

The Spa of Wonder set was a Christmas special retailing initially at £60 but sold for £30 when it was a Star Gift in early December and also when in the sales (which is when I bought it). It contains 10 products, with skincare, makeup and shower/bath toiletries included, in a good quality box with a hologram image on (sadly, I couldn’t keep the box as I really did not have space in my suitcase!). All the products are full-size so this really was a bargain buy (total product value is £77.50). soap and glory, spa wonder, boots, beauty products, beauty review, righteous butter, scrub of your life, clean on me, face mask, make up, gift box, beauty box soap and glory, spa wonder, boots, beauty products, beauty review, face mask, make upI have used a few of these Soap and Glory products before but some were new ones for me to try.

So, today, I’m starting a new post-series which will look at some budget beauty brands and will review a selection of products from these companies. Continue reading…
