Soap & Glory Girligo

When I was pregnant I wasn't able to wear perfume, it just smelled too strong on me. Being a perfume lover I found this really difficult. Now that I'm not pregnant I find that I still don't want to wear strong perfumes, the scents just seem overpowering. The solution that I've found has been to wear scented body lotions in place of perfume. They give me enough scent so that I smell nice but they aren't overpowering and don't make me feel sick. The body lotion that I've been wearing the most is Soap and Glory's Girligo. As with all of the other Soap and Glory products I've tried, it smells amazing!

Whenever I wear Girligo I get comments on how lovely I smell. After I started wearing this to work most of the girls at work went out and bought it, we bought so many that both the Kit stores in Perth were out of stock!

Soap and Glory says: Spritz Girligo on all over post shower for temptingly fragrant, softer, smoother, more supple skin. Scented with a tempting blend of bergamot, peach, strawberry, jasmine, mandarin and musk. 

And here's a cute saying from the box: "Flirting is the subtle art of making a man feel satisfied with himself."

I wouldn't say that I find this to be particularly moisturising. It's a spray on moisturiser which makes it very light, but as I wear it for the scent and not the moisturisation factor that doesn't worry me. It does work well as a light moisturiser but wouldn't be enough for dry skin. The scent lasts for about half a day on me before I need to reapply.  

Girligo isn't on the Kit site at the moment, from memory I think it cost around $18 (AUD).

Would I buy this again? Yes, I'm obsessed with it!

  1. Great review! Scents like this can be so pretty to wear, particularly when you don't feel like anything overpowering. I'll have to check it out!

  2. this sounds lovely, might have to check out my local Kit :D

  3. I haven't tried any soap and glory products yet, but from the sounds of it, I should try and get my hands on some to test out.

    I have scented things too much not to :D
