Soap & Glory Spa Butter Up
Advantages: easy to use, glides onto skin, subtle scent, great results
I am a big fan of Soap and Glory products, and I am guarenteed to get at least one set for my birthday and christmas every year, and this year was no exception. I was given the Butter Suite gift set for my birthday, as part of my presents from my partner. There was 3 body butters in the set, and one of those being Butter Up.
Even though I have used a wide selection of Soap and Glory products over the years, Butter Up is a new one to me, and I was excited to try it.
Butter up is a smoothing body cream, that is made to soften, smooth and moisturise your skin. It contains; Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, Grapeseed Oil and Sweet Almond Oil. All these ingrediants are known for their wonderful skin smoothing and soothing properties, so combine them all and you should have a great cream for smoothing your skin to perection, right?
Actually yes, because from the first use of Butter Up, I really noticed a difference in my skin. I suffer from problems with dry skin a lot, mostly due to allergies, and there is many a cream I have used in the attempt to make a difference to my skin, mostly without much luck.
As soon as I used Butter Up, I could feel it sinking into my skin, and it was almost like a thirst had been quenched!! The cream just absorbed into my skin nicely, and it didn't leave any oils, grease or nasty residue, but it did leave my skin with a nice, gentle glow, which is always nice!
Instantly, my skin felt smoother, softer and less tight. It wasn't perfect results from the first use, but after a few continous uses, the results were even more fantastic.
The cream itself is a thick, creamy-biege colour, and it is silky to the touch, with a slightly firm texture to it. It is very easy to spread on to the skin, and a little really does spread a long way. I used a small blob about the size of a 10p piece to do a whole arm, shoulder and half a neck. It almost glides onto the skin it is that easy to spread, really is like a butter!
There is only a slight scent to this cream, which is fresh, relaxing and sweet, all at the same time. It is not very strong, so it does not over power you or add a sickly sweet smell to your skin, thankfully. The results do last quite a while too, and I found that the glow lasted all day, or until I got wet at least lol!
As I said earlier, my skin is problematic mostly due to allergies, and a lot of creams and lotions in the past have caused my skin to break out in hives, or be more dry than when I put the cream on. Luckily, this has not happened with Butter Up, or any Soap and Glory products that I have used (there is some containing things I am allergic too, so I have not used those!) and I feel that most people with dry or sensitive skin should be ok to use Butter Up, as I did not have a reaction to it, but of course this will be down to your own judgement should you wish to try it out.
You can buy Soap and Glory products in Boots stores and online at www.boots.com. You can buy Butter Up as part of a 3 set in Butter Suite, or you can buy it on its own as part of the Soap and Glory Spa Range. I am unsure of the price, as I did not buy this for myself.
I really think this is a good product to use, and as I can not find any fault for it. I give this ite, a 5 out of 5 stars and I totally recommend it. If you would like a good skin treat, or are looking for ideas for a nice christmas present, this may just be exactly what you are looking for.
