Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed Deep Pore Detox Mask Review

Good Morning chicks. It is morning right?

I haven’t had a sec to go trolling through Target lately but I’m kinda hopeful when I do get around to it that some of the new Soap & Glory bits from England will be awaiting me to grace them with my presence.

Good news for you I already have these coveted pieces of Soap & Glory goodness and have been busily reviewing them for you. Aren’t I the bestest evers? In my own mind I am anyway.

I’ve been busy testing out the Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed Deep Pore Detox Mask. Dude, it comes with a cute little pink sponge. That should be reason ’nuff to want to buy it right?

It’s kinda terribly weird of me to get excited about a sliver of sponge right? Oh wells I never claimed sanity.

Have a little jump for the deets.

So actually the idea is much like Biore Self Heating Mask but cuter and alot less mess. I always find those pods that the Biore version come in such a bloody pain in the arse to work with, how about you or is it me?

This comes in a silver tube, comes with a cute little sponge, plus you get all the funky cool Soap & Glory pink retro packaging, hello, packaging sells it to me baby!

It’s £10 in the UK so I imagine by the time it hits our side we will be looking at $14.99 or so. I’m predicting Target gets it at the end of this month or the middle of next.

I love Soap & Glory for having stuff like “Poreclear” technology. They so make that rubbish up right. Poreclear? Is that the scientific name do you think? Ha!

It’s pretty much suitable for all skin types and offers a deep clean they say it’s ideal for greasy, blackhead prone skin best of all. I don’t really suffer from blackheads aside from the stubborn ones on my nose and my skin is fairy normal, if not a little dry after my dramas with L’Oreal 360 at the moment. Overall, it gives me a nice squeaky clean, deep down clean feeling.

It actually contains pumice which is interesting as once it’s on your face and you begin to whisk it off with your hands or the cute sponge you’ll notice the slightly grainy texture. The idea of the mask is to apply on dry skin, rub until it turns blue (oh hai Biore dupe), and proceed to rinse. The mask self heats so it’ll feel warming for a few moments while you rub. The only thing I hate about this and Biore’s version is the heating is for such a short time, I wish it lasted for a few minutes more because it feels so very soothing. It also contains Salicylic Acid so if you’re suffering from the crop of evil pimples this may help them along their way. Soap and Glory says it’s ideal for oily, spotty skin types. It has a nice fruity, minty type smell but nothing dramatic, very subtle.

You can use it in two ways. As a quickie scrub on your face or wait for 3-5 minutes or longer if you dare and rinse it off with the sponge. So it works as a simple scrub or a mask treatment.

Overall, for my skin it’s a nice weekly scrub or even twice weekly when I’m not so dry. I like how it makes my skin soft without drying it out and also left feeling squeaky clean. I’d definitely repurchase again once it arrives on US shores, I can see it easily becoming a part of my skincare regime.

Likey alot.

Special thanks to my good friend Rowena who ran around England during the busy Holiday season to locate this and ship it.

    I haven’t tried any Soap & Glory stuff and I want to so bad! When I last went to Target I was actually going to get the sexy mother pucker gloss, but it was all sold out 🙁 I have never even heard of heating masks, thanks for the review!

    • the Muse

      you’re most welcome heather glad you enjoyed the review. Def try it, I really enjoy the brand 😀 I actually have a review upcoming on sexy mother pucker so maybe by the time I get swatches and such up your target will have it back in stock 😀

  • Gemma

    Hi Muse i love soap and glory. I have not got round to trying this one yet. However i do recommend the fabpore intensive action pore refining facial peel. Have you tried this? I know you don’t suffer from large pores like me but for those that do they really do look smaller for a few days after use. Plus it really does feel like you have had a facial peel afterwards. Best thing iv used and iv tried similar to this a lot of expensive brands and its only 5 or 6 pounds.

      hi gemma me too! 😀 you’re lucky you get the new bits first!

      mmm I don’t I tried that which is that?! got a link? sounds intriguing!

  • Jasmine

    Hi Muse!

    Is this a ‘gommage’ product? Or is it another of those water-activated exothermic chemical reactions that claim to open up pores …

    • the Muse

      I’d say that claims too LOL Jasmine most claim that 🙂 a little bit of a gommage as it’s scrubby a tad bit

  • Christine

    I have to say, I finally used a product you used too! Not this one, but the Biore one. I must say, the pods have too much for me so this tube will work much better. I totally agree with you on the time of heat, they really need to make it longer.

    • the Muse

      yay Christine 😀 I’d love a tube too…that wold be great, less mess! And agreed I’d love it to last longer…it’s so brief right?

    • the Muse

      OH gemma must try that! I always skipped over it as I really don’t have pores but still curious he!

  • Bethan

    I like using this a couple of times a week as a bit of a deep clean for my skin, definitely a shame that the heating doesn’t last longer but good anyway. Clean Mary is quite nice as a cleanser that could be used daily. I got a massive soap and glory hatbox set for xmas and have got loads of new S&G things to try. Loving the colour of sexy motherpucker in candy gloss but the new Extreme-Plump version is good too, works faster and is less sticky but currently only available in clear.

    • the Muse

      hey bethan that’s what I do maybe twice a week. I hate that the heat doesn’t last but it’s still a love. Clean Mary is lovely as well but I lean towards oils but still I keep one stashed away anyway 😀 man I wanted that my friend rows got it! 😀 I just got a trip of motherpucker and it’s such a love!
