Sophisticated name, eye catching design, irresistible scents and thought-through philosophy.... I present to you Soap & Glory - one of the young British cosmetic brands that addresses cosmetic fans in several countries. CouCou wants to ensure to bring again a unique and niche cosmetics to people who want to differentiate. Let's look at what Soap & Glory is and why it's becoming so popular....
In 2006, the first Soap & Glory collection emerged named "Clean of England" which was intended for men. Founder, Marcia Kilgore, was a businesswoman who had passion in body care products. Marcia wanted to bring to the UK cosmetic market interesting, quality cleaning products. Due to her dedication she is in considered a reputable cosmetic expert who understands needs of the body and skin. It is no wonder as she is the founder of the popular Bliss Spa brand and beloved and comfortable shoes FitFlop. She also used her business experiences at the birth of Soap & Glory and brought to market affordable and quality products which lighten up any bathroom.
She was born in Canada and when she was 18 year old she moved to New York. As easly as 8 year old she first come into contact with cosmetics when her sister plucked eyebrows into thin strips. As a teenager she began to have problems with acne so she started to look into the skin care. When she was 26 she opened her salon which started to be visited by stars like Christy Turlington, Madonna, Oprah Winfrey, Cameron Diaz and others. Her services were not cheap and despite that her network of salons was expandeding. In 2004 she moved from New York to London where she currently lives with her French husband and two children. After the birth of her first son Marcia did not want to return to the service sector. A new idea struck her about creating a new brand that would be available and affordable. And so in 2006 she created Soap & Glory where she utilised her knowledge from the world of beauty.
Soap & Glory scored at the beginning with a lip gloss which is now iconic. "Sexy Mother Pucker" became popular for its magnifying formulas that adds fullness to the lips. Shortly afterward their body butter "Righteous Butter" was elected as the best British body butter. Righteous Butter is enriched with shea butter and aloe vera to moisturize the skin. "Make Yourself Youthful" anti-aging peptide serum obtained a gold star at the beauty contest The Times beauty awards. Soap & Glory has placed the bar very high and every single product that followed was even greater.
Currently, Soap & Glory has in its portfolio decorative cosmetics, cleaning products for face, creams for different skin types and different problems. Their offer is so wide that every woman will find her product out there. We try to introduce the most popular scents of the body line:

I combine it with Righteous butter and whole morning I feel wonderfully refreshed. I agree with the other girls it would be nice to see how much remains in the bottle but that's my only criticism. It has become my heart fragrance! "
Marcia is a reflection of a healthy lifestyle, regularly works out, frequently drinks and eats quality food. Successful businesswoman claims: "What you do, do for love not for money. Any career that you start purely for the purpose of financial gain will eventually be miserable. Life is short so do what you love and success will follow - and if not, at least you will be happy every day." These words is the image of her works results and talk about the sensitivity with which Marcia works in creating her brand Soap & Glory .
I personally find Marcie's thinking and philosophy and the brand Soap & Glory very sympathetic. I already have ordered a few products of this brand so you can expect a review soon...
