Soap & Glory Girligo Body Moisturizing Mist

Soap & Glory is officially my favorite new brand discovery. All thanks to Sephora that recently sprouted up in the country. I've got a few of them lined up but the first one I'm reviewing is the Girligo Body Moisturizing Mist.

Love the vintage-esque packaging. Also the cute quotes like 'At Soap & Glory, we believe that you shouldn't have to spend an arm and a leg to moisturize one' or 'Girligo was safely tested in the United Kingdom on so many women, it could make your head spin!'

Basically Girligo is applied right after the shower with a few quick spritzes and preferably allowed to air dry. If you're short on time you can rub it into the skin. The best part is that unlike most moisturizers it doesn't stay or turn sticky. This is great with the humid/hot weather in Malaysia.

Unfortunately I cannot speak for its moisturizing capabilities as my skin isn't particularly dry but it does feel pretty good. It is much more convenient than conventional moisturizing especially if you're rather lazy like myself :) Just a tip, be careful to not overspray the mist onto the floor as it can make the surfaces pretty slippery - especially tile.

The scent is quite girly. Not overwhelming mind you but perfectly nice and clean. The scent is a mix of bergamot, peach, strawberry, jasmine, mandarin and musk. Although you can't quite pick any one of 'em out ... it just smells one-of-a-kind.

It's also stated pretty boldly right on the box 'Sensible men said driven to dizziness by Soap & Glory Girligo Body Moisturizing Mist'? Well .. believe me, it works! The husband loves Girligo and all the other Soap & Glory products tried so far. Seriously, it's a keeper.

Soap & Glory Girligo Body Moisturizing Mist (250ml) is available at Sephora for RM32.

Thanks for the review. I've always pass over Soap and Glory when I see them in Boots Thailand. Maybe now, I'll take a good 2nd look!

The holidays is coming up end of August, you and hubby coming to Penang? LOL, just trying my luck >.<

@hevn - That's up to the man :) Although we did plan to head to Penang together sometime so maybe time to go nudge him on that.

By the way if you need anything from KL or hereabouts I don't mind being your personal shopper :D

It's been a while, what have you been doing? Playin Deus EX or something? :D

But anyway I hope all is well with you. Glad you guys didn't come to the island for the holidays, the jam was pretty bad :(

@hevn - yeah playing Deus Ex :) but mostly feeling under the weather. We were just talking about heading there (again) but won't go during holidays ... learnt our lesson going to Singapore the last time.
