Shake My Hand

I’m a collector, when I see something in a new line of products, I pick it up even though I have no need for it. Soap and Glory’s Great Shakes Hand Creme is a fine example of this. I saw some at Target one day and couldn’t help myself even though I’m perfectly happy with my hand cream.

Soap and Glory's Great Shakes Hand Cream If you like your hand cream on the thicker side, you’ll like this product. It doesn’t absorb as quickly as I’d like it to, it takes a little bit but once it does, your hands will feel incredibly soft. I marveled at how soft my hands really were. It doesn’t leave a greasy residue on your hands either. As an added bonus, my hands remained moisturized after a little hand washing. Just like the line’s bubble bath, this hand cream shares the same scent. It’s a combination of bergamot, strawberries, manadarin, musk, amber and warm vanilla.

The product actually claims repeated use should bring visible reduction in dehydration related lines and wrinkles but I haven’t been using this consistently enough to attest to the claim. If you have, please let us know though.

Calm One, Calm All

What could be better at the end of a long week to take a nice, warm bubble bath with a glass of wine and just relax? That’s what I did the other night, I picked up trial sizes of the new Soap and Glory line at Target and prepared to soak.

Soap and Glory's Calm One Calm All Bubble Bath What’s interesting about this product is that it says it has body lotion built right in, moisturizing your skin while you soak. While the bathwater didn’t seem particularly soothing or moisturizing, I did notice that my skin was a bit softer afterwards. While it could do with a hint more moisture, if you were in a hurry, it would do. It’s a personal preference I guess. Also, I was really surprised by the amount of bubbles I had in the bath. I love lots of bubbles in the bath and this one delivered on that front. As for a scent, it was intriguing. It’s a combination of bergamot, strawberries, manadarin, musk, amber and warm vanilla.

For those of us in the US, look for the line at Target. In the UK, you can find it at Harvey Nichols and Boots. If you see the trial sizes, pick them up! It’s a good way to get acquainted with Soap and Glory.
