We scream for ice cream!
Fact: we are both in love with Marcia Kilgore’s so-clever Soap & Glory range. Names that make us grin like idiots. (Think: Arch de Triumph brow pencil.) Products that deliver. Really affordable prices. (Find them at Boots, as well as Harvey Nix Beyond Beauty.) However, when a beauty brand serves giant ice cream sundaes and knickerbocker glories at its Christmas preview - well, we walked out with an even bigger smile on our faces. But what did we find that really got us excited (apart from several scoops of dark chocolate ice cream)? Gift sets that we’ll be giving to all our goddaughters for Christmas. A really brilliantly-designed silver long-handled brush with just the right balance of firm-and-soft, for top-to-toe body-blitzing. Truly effective nylon body-buffing gloves, for the bath (Soap & Glory pink, of course). And a funny little pink exfoliating pad with rubber bristles (pictured here in close-up). Kinda weird. Kinda wonderful. And you know what? It’ll probably do for face-buffing what Marcia’s FitFlops have done for our feet, and we’ll wonder how we ever lived without one.
