Soap & Glory&#8482 SUGAR CRUSH&#8482 Body Spray
Firstly I want to say that I wanted to write this review to aid others before buying, but at the same time I'm quite gutted about what I have to say about this product. Soap & Glory is a firm favourite of mine, from the makeup to the skincare back to the bodycare, there's not really been much that has let me down, aside from a product or two being slightly too perfumed and irritating to my sensitive skin - apart from that it's a brilliant brand, packaging and product names and formulations. The Sugar Crush scent in particular I utterly adore, I have the body scrub, body butter and shower gel from the range and thought it was about time I picked up the mist too. Since I was between perfumes recently I figured it was a good time to purchase this, and it's in the handy little sized bottle ideal for throwing in your bag and topping up if you have to. But that's where I felt the product fell completely short. At first spritz, there was that glorious limey fragrance again, and the prospect of smelling like that all day felt great. But that's the thing, after honestly only around the ten minute mark, I sniffed my arm just to catch a whiff of the scent again and it had vanished completely. Not even a trace left on my skin. I realise of course that body sprays aren't as potent as actual perfumes, but what's the use in having one at all if the smell doesn't stick around for a while at least? You can't hope that it lingers around for hours and hours but I was surprised it disappeared quite as quickly as it did. If you're hunting for a reliable spray to leave you smelling delectable all day then this isn't for you- unless you're prepared to spray repeatedly over the course of the day. If you're an avid excessive sprayer then that wouldn't be a problem, but for most of us perhaps it's just a waste of money. In the end I had redeemed my points against this so it wasn't a huge loss and at £4 it won't break the bank anyway, but perhaps the vanilla and lime fragrance at £10 is a better bet. Either that or slather on the body cream before starting your day and you'll have heavenly scented limbs until you get home.

total waste of money
Gutted, this was a treat, no point to it, no smell at all, would not buy again.

Smells nothing like the shower gel
I absolutely love the scent of Sugar Crush - I have a bottle of the body wash in every bathroom to use as handwash (as well as one in the shower, of course) and thought the body spray would be great to pop in my bag to freshen up during the hot weather. Unfortunately the smell bears very little resemblance to the shower stuff, scrub & lotion - I ended up throwing it away. I'd advise trying in store before buying to make sure you like it first.
