Dirty Works V Soap and Glory - is it a dupe?

You know when you use a few different products and suddenly one reminds you of another? Well that happened to me whilst I was on holiday.  As mentioned in a previous post, see HERE, I took with me lots of travel sized lotions and potions and whilst using my Soap and Glory products I realised they smelt similar to another product that I had received for my birthday from a friend.

Here are those products:

Dirty Works are a brand of bath and body products that you find for sale in Sainsburys and quite a lot of the Blogs I follow have reviewed them.  I got the package above as a birthday present from a friend who knew I liked Soap and Glory but promised me this brand would be just as good if not better.

However, I don't know if anyone else has noticed this and please note I did say 'similar' and not the same, but it was with Scrub of your life that I first noticed that there was a similar scent to Buff your Stuff and when I got home I used both of the products one after another to look further into it:

Dirty works on the left and Soap and Glory on the right

Neither product look similar and truth me told the Soap and Glory Scrub is much thicker in texture than Dirty Works though the scrub particles are similar.  The similarity comes with the scent and that is all it is, similar.  The fruity smell I have come to know and love with Soap and Glory products is very similar with this particular Dirty Works product and could it be a very good dupe?

The Scrub of your life currently costs £7 for 200ml whereas Buff Your Stuff from Dirty Works costs £3.99 for 200ml which is quite a big saving.

Have you noticed this? Have you tried a Dirty Works product?


  1. Oh wow! Even the packaging styles are very similar! Maybe the word for this brand would be that its a 'dupe' for soap and glory? Great post!


  2. I've never tried any Dirty Works products but I have heard good things, and I'd tend to go for the cheaper product here! I can't use Scrub of Your Life though because of the SLS :( Great post!

  3. I'e seen Dirty Works in Sainsburys for quite some time and always thought it looked similar to Soap & Glory, I'm tempted to buy somet o find out how similar they are!

  4. I've tried neither product but I have always wanted to try Soap and Glory stuff but the price puts me off. I may pick up some Dirty Works if it is similar :) x

  5. I agree! i own many dirty works stuff and what i love about it is the price! half of what soap and glory charge :)

  6. I've been using a couple of Dirty Works products now - the eye cream, foot cream and body lotion and love them - as much as I do Soap & Glory! Yes, they are very similar! By the way, have tagged you on a post xx

  7. lovely blog!

    would you like to follow each other?

  8. I've tried a few things from Dirty Works and they were okay but not as good as Soap & Glory. I think the whole 'retro' packaging is overdone now anyway!

  9. I've never tried Dirty Works but my fiance has spotted them in Sainsburys and been like "oh look there's that brand you like" thinking it's S&G xx

  10. I do think the packaging is definitely a good dupe and they do look nice in the bathroom but I can't help but find the quality of S&G much better xxx

  11. I saw these at tjmaxx and I thought "wow these smell just like soap and glory". I would honestly pick s&g over them any day.
