I’m a massive Soap & Glory fan so when I discovered these ‘miracle’ products on the shelf I simply couldn’t resist them. I didn’t bother to read the reviews and I didn’t think twice. I paid the price and walked out of Boots with the very happy feeling. I am incredibly idle when it comes to exercise so I love finding products that promise gym-like results without having to go to a gym.

THEY SAY: Every morning knead a generous layer of Sit Tight onto your bottom and thighs, to set up the Sit Tight Pressocapsular-Firm-System. Allow it to absorb for at least 30-60 seconds before putting clothing over the top. [You may feel a heating sensation for several minutes, but please note: Sit Tight’s active system is more effective when you sit down.]

I SAY: I’ve been using the product for a long time now and there isn’t that much of a visible difference to my bottom or thighs. Saying this, my job requires that I stand up constantly so this may be hindering any results. The texture is quite thick so it takes a lot of rubbing into the skin to fully absorb. It has a slightly floral scent but not the usual Soap & Glory smell that you get from their other products. The heating sensation can be quite uncomfortable, especially as it tingles at the same time, and on a hot day is almost a burning feeling. It’s a product that I personally won’t be repurchasing as body brushing on a daily basis probably renders similar results.

THEY SAY: Tight Genes? Want to look like your were born with them? Twice a day massage The Firminator onto any area of the body that – left to its own devices – lacks an acceptable level of lift or lean. After 56 days, you may not believe your thighs (or your arms or your abs).

I SAY: The fancy packaging that this tube came in shows how you the fat molecules in the areas where this product is used shrink by quite a large amount but so far this product has done nothing that a decent diet and regular walks in the fresh air haven’t done. On application this is a thick gel that sinks in easily but leaves the skin tingling and slightly cool. It has a lovely peppermint scent  It doesn’t tighten abs at all – I have the belly to prove it! This product was, for me, a completely waste of money.

All in all I really was disappointed with these purchases. Soap & Glory are usually such a fantastically brilliant brand but for me these two products are not worth their price tags. I wouldn’t recommend them to anyone although there are lots of people that love these products and probably would. I personally think there are probably cheaper or even free alternatives to what these products are promising as their results.

Have you tried these Soap & Glory products?
