As you might have seen in my Christmas Beauty Haul I received the Soap & Glory 'Best of All' gift set for Christmas, and among the 9 products were these two lovely products. I've never tried any Soap & Glory products before (apart from their Thick and Fast mascara which I didn't love). I also haven't ever really followed Soap & Glory as a brand so, although I know that they're popular, I didn't really know what to expect! I have to say though, the first thing I noticed about both of these products is the packaging. I absolutely love the colour and the font and the descriptions on the back of both were really cute (I've taken photos to show you). I know we shouldn't choose skincare on the packaging it comes in but liking the aesthetic of a product is never a bad thing!
Heel Genius is a fantastic product. I instantly really liked it and when I used it for a few days and saw that it really worked and that my skin were continuing to get softer and smoother I was really happy. This product is cream but feels a lot like a gel when you apply it and it has a minty scent (like a lot of foot products) but it isn't very strong. This is essentially a foot mask, you apply this on your feet before bed, slip on some cotton socks and wake up with softer feet. It is so easy to get into a habit of using this daily that I almost can't believe I haven't always been using a product like this! I'm hooked on this and it has become a part of my routine that I enjoy using. I'd definitely recommend it.

Hand Food is definitely the most hyped Soap & Glory product that I've come across so far. Everyone seems to love this, on #bbloggers chats I have been endlessly recommended this for my dry hands! I've been a faithful use of L'Occitane's hand creams for a while now and although I still really do rate them for their quality, I have to admit that Hand Food is pretty darn amazing. I threw this into my handbag because my Body Shop hand cream which I'd taken back to London with me exploded without mercy in my bag one day- those metallic tubes look really nice but if you try and fold those babies tears will eventually be shed! Anyway, as a result, I've been using this since Boxing Day which I know isn't ages but I've already noticed an improvement in my knuckles which I really struggle to keep moisturised at this time of year. This hand cream also smells really lovely without being so strong as to annoy you or those around you, and it sinks in really very quickly. Even when you accidentally apply too much, which I do all the time (it's no fault of the packaging I'm just a moisturizer glutton!) The packaging of this really is another strong point for those looking for something to keep in a handbag as it is unlikely to explode and the lid isn't a removable screw top which can get dropped into, or inexplicably lost, in your bag. Lastly, the price really appeals to me. You can pick a 125ml tube of this up from Boots for just £5.50 which I think represents excellent value for money.
Overall, I've been really impressed with Soap & Glory and am looking forward to trying some of the other skincare products from the 'Best of All' kit. It also came with some Soap & Glory vouchers so if any of you would highly recommend any of their other products do let me know what I should put these towards!
