Soap and Glory Pulp Friction.

Soap and Glory body scrubs are amazing. Fact. I've used both the Flake Away and The Breakfast Scrub and absolutely loved them, and always have one of them on the go in my bathroom.   This one however is quite different in both its formula and packaging which on the whole I think is a nice change.

Unlike the other S&G scrubs that I've tried, this one comes in a tube, rather than a tub.  As with all their packaging, it's very eye catching; some might say a bit gimmicky, but hey if the product is good, what's not to love about some quirky packaging?! Some of its more unusual ingredients are listed on the front, one of which being "lemonade tree liquid".... yep Lemonade Tree! Yes I was dubious too, but after a quick Google, I can confirm that such a thing actually exists and is in fact a cross between a lemon and a mandarin.  See, you learn something new every day!  Pulp Friction is part of the 'Fruitigo' range which, as the name suggests, is a fruity smell, but a nice fruity smell.  This is definitely not one of those 'citrus' scented product that actually smells like something you'd clean your kitchen with.  Hurrah!

How the product foams up on your skin with water.

Pulp Friction is actually a foaming body scrub,  sort of a mix between a regular body scrub and a shower gel, a bit of a multi-purpose product if you like.  I don't know about you,  but I don't feel properly 'clean' after using a regular scrub.  I mean, obviously my skin is clean and smooth, but I still feel the need to use a shower gel afterwards to get rid of any bits of scrub that have stuck to my skin, and also because I like how the lather of the shower gel makes me feel clean and refreshed.  This is where this product comes in.  It foams up a little as you massage it into your skin, while at the same time gently exfoliating and removing dead skin cells.  It may not be the foamiest of body washes, or the scrubbiest (yes, scrubbiest!) of scrubs,  but is ideal if your in a bit of a rush, or don't need the full on exfoliation you'd get from something like Flake Away.  Using a harsh body scrub every day can actually do more damage than good, but a more gentle one like this can definitely be used more often I'd say. I tend to use Flake Away or Breakfast Scrub once a week,  then alternate between Pulp Friction and a normal body wash for the rest of week.  

Pulp Friction costs £8 from Boots,  and is definitely worth checking out, especially at the moment as Soap and Glory is 3 for 2!
