The Yule Monty Soap and Glory Gift Set

Well Christmas is gone once again, so everyone is getting ready for new year which is less than a week away. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas or a good holiday for those who don't celebrate and got lots of the things you wanted. I was really lucky to receive many presents and vouchers this year and amongst them I received the Yule Monty gift set from Soap and Glory. I had my eye on this before Christmas as I had noticed the set was reduced from £60 to £27 which a ridiculously good deal and of course went out of stock very quickly however luckily my mum was able to grab one, little did I know as I hadn't asked for the set. So I thought I would tell you what is included within the set- not a review as such- and everyone loves a little nosy. I do warn you though this post is very picture heavy. The gifts come packaged within a beautiful pink and silver bag which could be appropriate for travelling or to hold beauty, skincare and body items. I will definitely be keeping the box as I am sure I will find a way in which I can use this around my bedroom or for going on holiday next year.
Within the set you receive Hand Food, Sugar Crush Body Wash, The Righteous Body Butter, Peaches and Clean Cleanser, Heel Genius Foot Cream, Butter Yourself Lotion, Scrub of your life, Thick and Fast Mascara and Sexy Mother Pucker in Pink out Loud.  
 Around this time last year I picked up the Sugar Crush Body Wash and have only literally just come to the end of the bottle. The product lasts a ridiculously long time due to the consistency and of course as the product contains 500ml. The scent Sugar Crush is my favourite due to the lime and freshness of the scent, very appropriate for the Summer and Spring for a pick me up to keep you wide awake and fresh. The only negative about this is the price which is £6.50, now this is quite a lot for a body wash however in the long run the product is worth the money and would outlast four or five £1 body washes.
The other bottle is the Butter Yourself Body Lotion which is something I have never tried before. The scent is described as 'super smoothing Shea butter, orange water juice, fig pulp extract and almond, mango and moringa oils'  Although I am not particularly great at describing scents I would agree there is a scent of oranges which isn't overpowering so if you aren't a fan of the Sugar Crush scent you would probably prefer this. Although I wasn't particularly keen at first I have grown to like the scent and find it to be very different from the other scents Soap and Glory offer.
 I have used hand food before and posted it within my soap and glory favourites post which you can find here. This is such a great product which is perfect to smooth and hydrate your hands without leaving them feeling sticky. I love the traditional Soap and Glory scent which the Hand Food has and will always be a firm favourite of mine. If you have never tried this before I would definitely recommend this, they even offer a smaller size for those who don't want to spend £5.
Although I can't comment on the other two products I am really intrigued to try them as I haven't before.
The product I am most intrigued to try is the Peaches and Clean Cleanser as I have never tried a Cleanser before- shocking I know- and of course this product smells of delicious Peaches. I can't wait to give this a go and see if it makes a difference to my skin. Although I have never used a big tub of the Righteous Butter before I have used smaller containers which have produced how good this product is due to its soft texture which sinks into the skin and the smell which is identical to hand food.
I have never tried any of the Soap and Glory make up and I wish they had included more within the set as I am only really interested in trying the thick and fast mascara due to the fact the lip gloss reminds me of something which I would have got in a set when I was younger however I would still like to try it as I am sure it will be better than I expect it to be. I feel extremely fortunate to receive this set and happy with everything within the gift box as they are either products I haven't tried or I already love. Anyways if you would be interested in a what I got for Christmas comment below as I am not sure whether to post one or not.
Thank you for reading,
