I know I shouldn’t say this, what with being a nail technician and all, but some times I really do get bored of looking a photos of nails. It’s not the nails themselves that bore me, but the set up; always a close-up of a pretty hand holding a bottle of nail polish, or an embellished phone case. So imagine my utter delight when I came across Burgers and Nails. It does exactly what it says on the tin, shows pictures of beautiful manicured hands with fantastic nail art holding delicious looking burgers. I’m not sure what gets me off more, the talons or the food, but either way it is like porn that I can look at at work! To top it off, you can submit your own images, which means only one thing; girls, lets get our nails did and eat our weight in burgers! Hallelujah!!!!
Ok, lets get to the nitty gritty. I have in-growing hairs. No bullshit here, they are fucking irritating. Everytime I get my legs waxed, the beauty therapist never fails to tell me (over and over and over again throughout the wax) that I need to exfoliate more. The problem is I do!! I know that my wax-ist thinks I’m lying, the same way that I tell my dentist that I floss, but hand on my heart, I’m not! I exfoliate every couple of days, and bloody moisturise too, as that is apparently the way to get rid of the in-growing bastards. But alas, those hairs love me, and don’t wanna leave me.
So, yesterday I decided to go on a full-blown attack. I read in a magazine last week that the Breakfast Scrub by Soap and Glory was a fail safe exfoliant that gets your legs smooth as butter. So, after work, I trotted in to boots, more excited about exfoliation than I have ever been, and should ever be, in my life.
Now, I love Soap and Glory, but only for the packaging. I’ve never used any of their products before, and have always (for some reason) thought that pretty packaging means product that is more for looking at rather than using…
I was surprised to find a massive range of scrubs and exfoliates in the S&G range. So after spending 20 minutes opening, smelling and contemplating every single one I decided that the Breakfast Scrub was not for me (as it smelt too much like oatmeal). Instead I went for Flakes Away. The stuff was coarser, and it smelt like expensive perfume.
That night I ran a nice hot bath, settled in, and went to work scrubbing myself like a hooker who had just had a dirty client. Well girls, a miracle happened right there my bath-tub, it was my very own EUREKA! moment. Not only did Flake Away actually take my flakes (and in-growers) away, but I was left with oiled up, silky-smooth feeling legs!
I strongly recommend the Soap & Glory scrubs and exfoliates, and probably the rest of their products too, but I’ll have to check them all out for you first, strictly for research purposes of course….
