I will be reviewing my first shower gel from Soap and Glory. I have been using some Soap and Glory products recently thanks to a cousin who got me some gifts from this brand. Soap and Glory have some drool worthy gift packs for Christmas. I loved the scrub and moisturising mist I used so far and I have started using this from the beginning of this month. Since most of the gifts I received were in travel size, I have used up quite a bit of all these products. I wanted to try all of them during the festive season so I started using them during the beginning of the month and now I continue to use them during my Christmas break in Melbourne. The shower gel I received was called “Clean On Me” and is a clarifying creamy shower gel. I love the product names for Soap and Glory, they are cute and unique such as “Flake Away,” “Clean On Me,” “Girligo,” etc.

My Experience with Soap and Glory Clean On Me Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel:
This shower gel comes in a cute white bottle with a pump lid if you buy the full size. However, the travel size I received came with a flip top cap. The bottle is sturdy. I have thrown it around in my travel bag and this has never leaked. This has the trademark delicious Soap and Glory fragrance as usual which is exactly the same as “Flake Away” and “Hand Food.” This is a yummy, heavenly fragrance, which contains notes of bergamot, summer rose, peach, strawberry, gardenia, patchouli and warm amber. I wouldn’t use it before hitting the bed as it does not have a soothing fragrance.
The shower gel has a creamy consistency and lathers well with a loofah. A small amount is sufficient if used with a loofah; however, I sometimes take a bit more to immerse myself in the foam. This product is marketed as creamy as well as clarifying. I have never come across a creamy yet clarifying shower gel before. Most creamy ones tend to not clean well and give the squeaky clean feeling and most clarifying ones tend to leave skin dry. However, this particular shower gel cleans skin very clean, but does not dry the skin.
This shower gel wakes me up in the morning and has a peppy feel to it. The fragrance only lasts for a very short time by itself. I love to top it off with either the righteous body butter or the moisturising mist and the fragrance then lasts longer at least for 4 hours. Even though this product is not drying, I feel I need to moisturise after showering, it isn’t as moisturising as to make me skip a lotion.
Pros of Soap and Glory Clean On Me Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel:
- Creamy shower gel which does not dry skin.
- Cleans skin well and leaves skin soft and supple.
- Smells peppy, girly, cute and heavenly without being too sweet.
- There are a lot of other products which can be used for layering with the same fragrance.
- Cute retro packaging.
Cons of Soap and Glory Clean On Me Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel:
- Contains a whole heap of parabens.
- Quite pricey if I were to purchase them in Australia.
- Not easily available in all countries.
