Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Polish
Last night as I sat watching 300 for the millionth time, I started to wonder what concoctions Spartan women would have used to exfoliate themselves. I’d like imagine there would have been a Spartan version of Boots where you could find pink clay pots filled with all different kinds scrubs and moisturisers. They could even have been made with similar ingredients found in Flake Away like grapeseed oil, sea salt, peach seed powder, and almond oil.

Flake Away is another product in Soap & Glory’s arsenal of inexpensive exfoliators. It claims to turn scaly legs from ‘reptilian to radiant’. The texture is like a fine paste rather than a thick, chunky scrub which is why this is referred to as a polish. I used this all over my body at first but I found it difficult to rinse off completely as the grains are so fine. Then next few times I used it I tried it on smaller targeted areas like elbows, feet, and knees. Using it this way gave me better results than spreading it over a large area.
If you have dry, sensitive skin this will feel quite comforting due to oils but it doesn’t feel greasy after you rinse it off. Your skin will be left with a sheen rather than an oily residue. My favourite use for this is a hand polish, especially after I’ve give myself a manicure. I’m not the most careful when applying nail varnish and this dislodges all the paint that usually ends up on the side of my nails and makes my hands feel velvety soft.
I should also mention this comes in a decent 300ml size and wait for it – no foil lid!!!! I’m sure you realise how happy this makes me. The only thing that I’m not too keen on is the scent, it’s reminds me of baby powder but as I only use it on my hands it doesn’t matter. This is available at Boots for £6.64 bargain!
