The Soap & Glory Sugar Crush range is now available in Canada!
After my glowing review of the Soap & Glory Smoothie Star range, I thought I’d follow up with another new-to-Canada scent from my fave British body care brand. I (reluctantly) set aside my Smoothie Star duo to put the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush range to the test with the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash* ($18), the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Lotion* ($16), and the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Spray* ($10).
Sugar Crush is not a scent that I would typically gravitate towards. The freshness of the lime and lemon notes is balanced with vanilla and not overwhelming, but whenever I use the products I can’t help but think that the scents don’t quite go together. It almost works, but the lime and the vanilla don’t blend as seamlessly together as I would want them to. That being said, the products themselves are absolutely fantastic. I wouldn’t expect anything else from Soap & Glory.
Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash Review
The Sugar Crush body wash is the perfect addition to a morning shower thanks to its invigorating fresh scent. Though the scent is not exactly my cup of tea, the shower gel itself does exactly what it should do and more. Plus, it comes in a bottle with a pump dispenser (!!!). It’s a thin and creamy body wash that lathers up well and rinses off easily, without being especially drying.
I tend to avoid fragranced body washes like this one, but I’ve almost finished up the bottle and I haven’t developed a painful rash yet, so I feel pretty confident saying that this particular one works for me. I’d still pick up the wonderful Soap & Glory Whipped Clean Shower Butter over this one (sadly it doesn’t seem to be available in Canada yet), but if you love fresh scents, the Sugar Crush body wash might be one to try!
Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Lotion Review
After being blown away by the Soap & Glory Body Buttercream formula while testing out the Smoothie Star range, I didn’t expect to love the body lotion as much as I did, but the pump dispenser won me over.
The lotion is thinner and lighter than the Buttercream formula, but it still delivers a ton of moisturising goodness. Like the Buttercream, it sinks in super fast. The scent lingers for about 20 minutes, and it smells exactly like the Sugar Crush body wash, so they make a great pair. It seems obvious since they’re from the same range, but the Smoothie Star Breakfast Scrub and the Smoothie Star Body Buttercream have slightly different scents.
Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Spray Review
Who knew body mists were still a thing? Soap & Glory has a whole range of these retro body sprays that will make you feel like you’re hanging out by the lockers, waiting for the bell to ring.
The first note? Alcohol. You know what they say, first impressions are everything…By the time I got to smell the juicy Sugar Crush fragrance under all that sharp alcohol, I had made up my mind about the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Spray. Some things are better left in the past, and body mists are one of them.

If you’re looking for a scent that’s fresh and sweet, the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush range is worth looking into. The sweet, citrusy scent didn’t work for me, but the products themselves are affordable and fantastic. You really can’t go wrong with Soap & Glory body care. The only product I really wouldn’t recommend is the body spray…there’s a reason we stopped using them in the first place.
