Soap & Glory Crosses The Pond—Again
Marcia Kilgore, the genius behind Bliss Spas and FitFlop, introduced Soap & Glory as a Target exclusive back in 2007. With names like Sexy Mother Pucker (a plumping lip shine) and the Greatest Scrub of All (a facial exfoliator), the reasonably priced, sassy English import was an instant hit. But then it mysteriously disappeared from Target stores, and getting your hands on Kilgore’s addictive Righteous Butter required a trip to London. “We really had no real choice but to break up with them,” Kilgore jokes, referring to Target’s inability to keep her product on shelves and customers happy. For her second shot at the U.S. market, she’s partnering up with a very different retail behemoth: Sephora. The luxury beauty destination just launched the entire Soap & Glory collection on its Web site this week, with a full in-store rollout planned for September. And it’s about time, too: A good Glow Job—that’s the brand’s daily radiance-boosting moisturizer—is hard to find.
