Guest post: Soap & Glory handbag handy products

A few weeks ago, I posted asking if anyone would be interested in guest blogging this September. Luckily lots of lovely readers got in touch, and I've got some really exciting guest posts lined up for you all. Today's guest post comes from Helen, a fellow beauty blogger who will be reviewing her favourite Soap and Glory minis, perfect for anyone who's lucky enough to be travelling this September:

Luckily, when travelling, no one has to lug around large lotions and potions any more as most brands have launched miniature versions of their products. Soap & Glory – exclusive to Boots over here in the UK - are no exception to this.

These miniatures are just the right size for carrying around and the brand’s perky pink trademark packaging makes the products easy to spot in any over-crowded bag or suitcase. All of their products are a purse pleasing £2.50 each so here, for your perusal, are my absolutely favourites for slinging into my handbag or luggage for that hit of beauty on the go.

Soap and Glory travel minis


Usually anti-bacterial hand sanitizers remind me of hospitals but this has such a great fresh grapefruit scent that I sometimes catch myself applying it to my hands even when I haven’t been commuting or touching anything particularly germ-ridden. It soaks into the skin really quickly without leaving that tacky or greasy feeling some sanitizers do. I can’t imagine not having this in my handbag.


This hand cream is thick, creamy and beautifully smooth to apply. It sinks in fast and because its ingredients include Shea Butter, Macadamia Oil and Marshmallow it leaves hands nourished and soft. It’s scented with the usual Soap & Glory fragrance too which is always flirty, floral and fun.


Body butters don’t come better than this one in my opinion. This is thick but easy to apply, giving that hit of much needed moisture – especially in very hot climates. I also know from personal experience that it helps to soothe even the most sun-burnt of sensitive skin without the usual discomfort of fragranced moisturisers.


This is a body exfoliate that multitasks. It may look very coarse but if a small amount is applied to the face and massaged against the skin very gently it also works as an excellent facial exfoliator. I recommended this - and gave my spare pot - to girl I met on my last holiday who was suffering from a flaky nose. She fell in love with it. Obviously it also works very well on legs and arms which makes it the perfect travel companion for the glow-getter that seeks a gorgeous even tan.


I like my shower gels to work hard. This shower gel lathers brilliantly, cleanses, softens, moisturises and leaves a lingering fragrance on the skin. This travel size is perfect for a week away as a little goes a long way and I've managed to eek out 10 showers from just one bottle. With credentials like that, what's not to love?

Soap & Glory travel minis retail for £2.50 each, available from Boots
