Soap & Glory Spa Butter Up
Advantages: Moisturising, pleasant scent
Disadvantages: Nothing in particular
I'm a big fan of Soap & Glory products, but I have far too many toiletries and it's taken me ages to get around to trying their body butter, Butter Up. This is part of the Spa range, and comes in light blue packaging instead of the usual pink.
I bought a gift set of Soap & Glory body butters ('A Butter Suite') and this was included. Normally the lotion comes in a tube, but here it is in a plastic tub. I do like this, as it means you can see how much you have left, and ensure you scrape every last bit out. The 150ml tub is clear on the bottom with a blue lid and label, stating that it is a "deluxe body smoothing cream" with a "special dry skin spa formula". The body butter contains cocoa butter, sweet almond oil and shea butter, which are known for their moisturising properties. It also contains aloe vera, good for sensitive skin, as well as vitamin e. The crushed grape and citrus formula, including grapeseed oil, adds scent.
Inside the tub, the butter is very thick: not quite as thick as Body Shop body butters, but almost. I normally use body butter at night, but I've been using this in the morning, thinking that it wouldn't be too heavy - I think I made the right decision. The body butter is a creamy buttermilk yellow with a lovely, light, citrus scent; this scent lasts on the skin very faintly but doesn't clash with perfume. It's ideal for summer - I think I chose the right time to use it!
I don't need to use too much at once, as a little goes a long way. I scoop some body butter out using my finger and smooth it onto my skin, concentrating on the driest parts like my lower legs, elbows and knees. It can take a little while to sink in, but as I apply my makeup before getting dressed this isn't too much of a problem.
The body butter works well, and once absorbed doesn't feel greasy. The moisturising effect generally lasts all day, though my skin can feel slightly dry towards the end. I do suffer from dry skin though, so this could be why. I like the smell too, though not as much as the standard Soap & Glory scent.
The tub seems to be lasting well: it isn't a particularly big one, so this is pretty impressive. Using it every day, I reckon it would take about a month to get through it.
I like this body butter and would consider buying it again, though I prefer The Righteous Butter, both for the scent and the moisturising properties. This does make a nice change though. I don't think you can buy it separately any more, but I've seen the Butter Suite gift set in Boots quite recently, so you can still obtain it that way.
