Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Polish – Review

Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Polish – Review

Wednesday, April 03, 2013 Sara Hassan , 20 Comments

Body scrub has become an important part of my beauty routine. It’s one of those things I try to indulge myself in at least once a week. It’s very addictive, trust me. 

Flake Away Body Polish
A superhero strength skin smoothing body polish with shea butter, sweet almond oil, peach seed powder, sea salt and sugar. Transforms your scaly legs from reptilian to radiant. Scented with our Original Pink™ fragrance.

Instructions for Use
Apply a handful of Flake Away on to damp skin and massage in circular motions until most of the grains are gone. Rinse well, pat dry and apply body glossing oil or moisture butter. (Careful! Avoid application over irritated skin or abrasions, as salt scrubs can sting.)

My thoughts
I think this product smells heavenly! Even though I’m not a fan of sweet scents, I’m in love with their signature scent. I would describe it as fresh, summery, a bit of floral, sweet and musky at the same time which I really like. However, it could be a little too strong for someone who prefers subtle scents. The best part is that it lingers on my skin for almost half the day which I’m not exaggerating. Just love it!

Now onto the actual product. It has a thick consistency that spreads over the skin nicely. If you take a closer look, you can see large exfoliating granules that seem to dissolve and vanish on the skin while you massage. These aren’t solid grains which may give you the feeling that it doesn’t scrub thoroughly but it actually does. I noticed that it’s much thicker than my previous scrub (which was grainy) so it has a wonderful grip on the skin which helps brush off the dead skin down the drain as you rinse off. With this product, you can probably handle more vigorous scrub down without it ever feeling harsh on the skin. It doesn’t leave behind any residue either.

My skin truly feels squeaky clean, smooth and hydrated every time I use it. Also, I can see that it makes my skin glow without making it greasy which is perfect for summer but I wouldn’t skip a body lotion in winter since it isn’t incredibly moisturizing. That being said, I really do believe it flakes away the dry rough skin very well. It comes in a large pink tub which will last you a long time. Did I mention that I love the description on the packaging? It's so amusing!

Overall, I think Flake Away certainly lives up to the hype. The reason why I might not repurchase it anytime soon is of course the price. I might get it when it’s on a sale. In the meantime, I’d keep trying other body scrubs in the hope that I'd find something like this for a cheaper price tag.

You might like it if…
  • You want a body scrub that doesn’t feel harsh
  • It exfoliates your dead/dry skin and leaves it soft, smooth and hydrated
  • You’re happy about the quantity
  • You find the scent appealing
  • The scent lingers for a long time
You might not like it if…
  • You expect it to be very moisturizing
  • You find the scent too strong for your liking
  • You think it’s expensive 
  • You prefer solid grains in your scrub
My rating
4.5/5

Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Polish is priced at £7.00/300ml and can be bought online from their website. I purchased mine for PKR 2500 from Wishlist. You can also purchase it online from Just4girls.pk.

What do you think about it? Have you tried it yet?

  6. The instructions say that after using Flake Away apply body glossing oil or moisture butter, would you recommend that to one who has oily skin, specially in summers?

    1. Hey Saria! I'm great. The Body Shop Olive Body Scrub, compared to this, is a bit harsh since it has got solid grains and isn't as hydrating/moisturizing as Flake Away. Plus, TBS is a lot cheaper and easily available. If you want a dupe for this, try TBS Shea Body Scrub. :)
