Bath & Body Works scrub dupe from Soap & Glory
This is my first ever dupe post so I’m quite excited. Now I know dupes are usually makeup or nail polish but I just had to share this with you all. A lot of my non-US readers often lament about not getting Bath & Body Works stuff here in the UK/Europe and yes we do get the short end of the stick. Soap & Glory however have replicated ones of my favourite types of body scrub from B&BW which is a creamy foaming body scrub.
Left Soap & Glory Pulp Friction and Right Bath & Body Works Creamy Body Scrub
As as you can see from the picture above the consistency and colour are nearly the same. The S&G one is only slightly runnier but only by a narrow margin. The B&BW scrub contains sugar crystals, aloe and jojoba oils; the S&G scrub contains pumice, fig powder, and peppermint oil.
Now in this picture they are both blended together – can’t tell the different can you? ‘What’s so great about foamy fruit scrub ’ I hear you ask. Well I like these kind of scrubs for days when I want exfoliation but I don’t want to take three layers of skin off (yes those days do exist). You can get really good friction (see what I did there?) with these kind of creamy scrubs as the exfoliants are usually small, numerous and not suspended a gelatinous goo that slides everywhere. I’ve tried this on wet and dry skin and like both methods equally and I don’t have to use a moisturiser afterwards if I don’t want to. This comes in a tube so it’s very convenient and quick to use when you want a bit of pampering and don’t have a lot time.
S&G isn’t my usual go to with body scrubs because I’ve never been keen on their fragrance. I find it too powdery and girly smelling but now that I’ve tried Sugar Crush, Breakfast Scrub and Pulp Friction I will me more inclined to try new products as these were all scented more to my liking.
Anyone else try Pulp Friction – what did you think?
