The Soap and Glory aisle is always one of the first I head to whenever I’m in Boots as I like to keep an eye out for any new releases, however Soap and Glory have been pretty quiet this year so far in terms of new releases and now two have come along at once just in time for Spring; the Soap and Glory Dry Shampoo and Moisture Mist. The Soap and Glory bath and body products all have different scents and the two new additions feature the Original Pink fragrance which consists of a blend of rose and bergamot. I don’t like rose scents at all but the Original Pink fragrance doesn’t smell like roses to me, and I find the scent to last longer than any of their other fragrances.
First up we have the Soap and Glory The Rushower Scent-Sational Dry Shampoo which is available in two different sizes; 200ml £4 and 50ml £2.50. This is the very first Soap and Glory Dry Shampoo and although I don’t love using dry shampoos to absorb excess oil, I do like using them to add texture and volume to my hair.
“Soap & Glory’s RUSHOWER™ Dry Shampoo is a scent-sational in-between washes quick-fix spritz. The spray instantly absorbs excess oil and dries so it’s invisible – even on dark hair. Friction-activated TOUCH-RELEASE™ technology gives your hair a gorgeous burst of mandarin rose and bergamot whenever you run your fingers through it. Nice dry, girls!“
I’ve never heard of a dry shampoo having ‘touch release’ technology but I really liked the concept of being able to massage your roots for an extra boost of fragrance. The scent of the Soap and Glory Dry Shampoo is pretty strong but it might be something you like if you’re using it to absorb oil and refresh your hair and scalp. It’s not the most texturising dry shampoo I’ve used but it doesn’t claim to be, but it does make my hair smell incredible so I’d be happy to use it as a hair perfume instead of a dry shampoo as I don’t need to absorb oil as my scalp is exceptionally dry. I find that it doesn’t feel overly powdery or sticky in the hair, and it manages to leave my hair feeling like hair. One of the reasons I hate dry shampoo is that it often leaves the hair looking/feeling worse, but I don’t have that issue with this at all.
The second new release is the Soap and Glory Spritz Me Quick Super Hydrating Moisture Mist £7.99 which is a fast absorbing body lotion which is packaged within a special tube which can be spritzed at any angle; even upside down. I love using lotion sprays in the warmer months as I just hate the stickiness and heaviness of richer creams on the skin so this really is the perfect alternative as it offers a dose of hydration whilst also leaving the skin beautifully scented.
To use the lotion you simply spritz it onto the skin, quickly rub it in and get dressed. It’s a super light mist which really reminds me of their Body Fragrance mists which are heavily scented and quick to absorb but they don’t hydrate the skin whereas this mist does.
I really like the pump on the bottle too as it takes just one spray on each section of the body; upper arm, lower arm, thigh and shins which makes it even quicker and easier to apply, and it doesn’t leave my hands feeling greasy after application either. When using this spray I find that I can’t wear perfume as this spray is so heavily scented that it overpowers any fragrance I’m wearing so I’m going to love using this on especially hot days as it’ll offer hydration thanks to the shea butter, jojoba, sweet almond and coconut oils as well as leaving behind a beautiful scent.
What do you think of the two new releases? Will you be giving them a try?
