Once Upon a Lime is the third and final gift set I picked up from the post-Christmas Boots sale. I've always associated Soap & Glory with their 'Original Pink' fragrance - that girly, sweet scent that first made me fall in love with the brand years ago. Since then, I've also fallen for the delicious brown sugar and oat scented 'Cream Team' range; but before now I'd never tried anything from the 'Sugar Crush' family. When I saw this set for half price (£9), I knew it was the perfect chance to introduce myself to the range.
The gift set includes a body scrub, body wash and body buttercream, all in a delicious zesty lime scent. Soap & Glory describe the scent as "a mouth-watering blend of kaffir limes, sparkling lemons and juicy mandarins complete with a gourmand base of sweet vanilla musk and coconut oil." It's a really refreshing, invigorating scent - perfect for early morning shower as a pick-me-up. The scent is strong and lingers a little, especially after using the buttercream - good news for some, although I know some people aren't fans of scents that stick around. It's something to keep in mind, anyway! As far as the actual products go, they all work really well. The body wash is thick, creamy and leaves the skin feeling really soft and clean. The scrub is effective without being harsh on the skin, and makes your skin smooth and smelling delicious. The body buttercream is the perfect last step - it's a thick and luxurious cream that absorbs quickly and leaves skin soft and moisturised.
Unfortunately, I think you'd have to be extremely lucky to find this gift set in store right now. I know my local Boots is currently on the very last of its remaining Christmas stock, with no Soap & Glory in sight; however every product from this set is available individually year round. If you're a fan of zesty, refreshing scents then I'd definitely recommend you give this range a go!
