Soap & Glory The Fab Pore Facial Peel

For some people it's dry, flaky skin, for others it's breakouts on their chin, and then there is oily T-zones, just a few of the problem areas we get on our faces. As well as having a few of the arforementioned problems now and again, I would say that the bain of my facial problem areas are my pores, it's something that I have constantly, unlike the other problems which may occur sporadically.

I have visible pores and clogged pores across both my cheeks and nose. Up until now I have been using Benefits the Porefessional on top of my foundation, which is brilliant by the way. It does hide my pores, but the problem lies when I put blush onto the apples of the cheeks. Even with the Porefessional underneath, the blush yet again brings attention to the problem area I had just concealed.

Easy answer? Don't wear blush. Yes, this is an option, but I like blush, I think it's fun and in the last six months I have really got into it. So if I can wear it, I will try.

When flicking through this weeks issue of Look Magazine last night one of their beauty features caught my eye.

"Brightening At-Home Facial Peels - Good to glow in seconds."

The "Look Recommends" product was Soap and Glory's The Fab Pore Facial Peel. It had been rated 5 out of 5 stars. And the description and mini review really interested me.


Blackheads gone after one use? I had to try this. At the reasonable price of £7.15, why not?
Today I popped down to Boots and picked it up.




Rub a grape-sized dollop into your face and massage in circles until the green beads have all dissolved. (Those with a high tendency for clogging should concentrate on the t-zone, chin or areas with large open pores.) Leave on for five minutes for a quick refresher, or fifteen for a real deep-cleaning do-it-yourself kind of facial. Rinse well, and follow with moisturizer. Repeat 2 - 3 times weekly.

What's in this peel that works:

Fomes Officinalis Extract: A mushroom extract that helps tighten pores. Salicylic Acid: Which loosens up the dead cells that contribute to pore clogging. Kaolin: That's 'cosmetic' for clay. It sops up extra oil on your skin and smooths your skins surface. Vitamins E & C: Antioxidants. Just because you're oily doesn't mean you're not aging.

Soap and Glory The Fab Pore Facial Peel is available at Boots for£7.15 for 50g of product.

I am excited to try this product out, I think I will give it its first go tonight before bed, and will be posting an update and review once I've used it for a while.

Has anybody used this product? Or if not can you recommend any other pore minimising products I can try?



  1. Ooh I now want this! I find a lot of their products hit and miss, I used a scrub of theirs today though and I love it! x

  2. @milkteef, I haven't actually tried very many of their products. They always look cute though, ha! x

  3. Ooh this sounds really interesting! I've never tried many soap and glory products but the packaging is adorable and they've always intrigued me! xo

  4. I really like this mask, I can't say it makes my pores invisible as it so claims, but I do like using it, for the glow and I can definitely see an improvement in my skin tone and texture when I use it. Looking forward to seeing what you think! xxx

  5. Ooooh sounds like it could be pretty good! Looking forward to your review!

  6. I use soap and Glory too, my mum has bought the whole range its lovely xx

  7. Hi,

    Facial peels are purely cosmetic in nature which improve skin texture for the softer and smoother complexion of younger healthier looking skin, it also deep form of exfoliation to remove the dead skin and improve skin tone and texture. Thanks a lot...
