Ever since the introduction of the Soap and Glory range in my local branch of Boots I have been trying quite a few of the products and, in almost every case, I have been very impressed with the quality.
I have tried (and liked) the Righteous Butter body butter so I decided to try the Daily Smooth Body Butter as well to see if that was better or different in any way.
Cost and Availability
I bought mine as part of a set called the Butter Suite which contained three 150ml pots of butter - Righteous Butter, Daily Smooth and Butter Up. The total cost for the set was £15 so each one effectively cost me £5. I can't remember what offer was on at the time - I think it may have been buy three products for the price of two - but I never pay full price for this type of thing - I always wait for a decent offer! Of course being a product in Boots I get Advantage Card points too or could use my points to buy the item if I have enough of them.
All of the butters seem to come in either pots or tubes. My Daily Smooth came in a fairly plain, cream coloured plastic pot with a pale pink screw top lid. There is a label on the front which just says Daily Smooth Body Butter and one on the back which gives a bit of information about the product and how best to use it. The label on the top of the pot again gives the name of the product and the tag line 'amazingly effective dry skin formula'.
Since the pot is made from plastic it can be thrown into the recycling bag once it is empty.
When I unscrewed the lid the pot contained a thick, white cream. It isn't as thick as the Body Shop body butter or the Righteous Butter for that matter - it is more like double cream than butter. The smell isn't very strong but what there is has the usual Soap and Glory type fragrance. I find that most of their 'cream' type products have the same light flowery perfume.
The instructions on the back of the pot tell you to 'divide a small plum sized splodge between your shins, knees, thighs, elbows, tops of toes and then everywhere else. Massage around until it sinks in.'
I find that it is easiest to use if I take a small amount at a time and massage it into my skin and then do the same things again until I have finished. The butter, being light and creamy, is absorbed by my skin very quickly and it feels really soft and smooth. The fragrance is lovely but it isn't one that I can smell during the day as it doesn't seem to linger.
I have noticed that, with continued use of this cream, my skin is feeling and looking much better. The areas of dry skin in particular are definitely much improved.
The other advantage with this particular product is that, being in a pot, it is easy to get every last bit out and thus none is wasted.
I tend to use various different moisturisers over time and I have to say that this is one of the better ones that I have tried. It is easy to use, it looks and smells lovely and my skin showed a marked improvement after just a couple of weeks use.
I am so very pleased with this product I have no hesitation in recommending it.
I am currently working my way through the ridiculously large quantity of body products that I have amassed over the years in one way or another, and so I am currently using this body butter as part of my daily routine (or at least as often as I remember!).
About the product
I'm sure you are all aware of the Soap and Glory brand by now so I won't bore you with details of the brand. This particular product is called The Daily Smooth and the packaging claims it is an 'amazingly effective dry skin formula'. The packaging also states that the product has Rosehip Seed oil and Cocoa Butter as well as 'beautiful notes of Bergamot, Blackcurrant, Magnolia, Freesia, Vanilla and Musk.' I am not sure I can pick up all those scents, in particular I am not noticing any blackcurrant, but I think the product does smell really nice, it is a light fragrance and is quite floral but not in an old lady scent way. It is not overpowering at all which is good for me because I do wear perfume and don't like the scent of my body lotion to clash with my perfume but I feel with this you can only really smell it if you sniff your skin up close so it is not too strong. It does say on the packaging that if you love the fragrance you should double it up with their Mist You Madly body spray on top which has the same fragrance - I think I have a bottle of that somewhere but am yet to try it, although it could well work in place of a daily perfume.
The product comes in a plastic bottle which is the shape of a toothpaste tube with a flat cap on the bottom, which I like because it means the product stands up on the shelf. It is actually a see-through bottle but appears to be a creamy colour because you can see the cream itself through the packaging. It has mainly pink writing on it and a pink cap. You flip the cap to open the bottle and then squeeze the product out of the hole.
The instructions on the back state that you should divide a small plum-sized splodge between your shins, knees, thighs, elbows, tops of toes and then everywhere else and massage around until it starts to sink in. I had not actually read the instructions until just now while I am writing this review and actually what I tend to do is squeeze a bit out on my leg, rub that in as far it will go then carry on around my body squeezing out what I need when I need it, which I think works just as well as their way. The lotion is actually quite thick and not at all runny as some moisturisers can be and so you do have to rub/massage it in to make it sink in but I like this about it and I believe it is good for your skin to have a good old rub in. As soon as you begin to rub this in you can feel the moisture sinking in and your skin does become instantly smoother. I don't think this moisturiser is greasy like some can be although I do tend to prance around in my dressing gown for 5 minutes after applying it to give it a chance to soak in before I put my clothes on and unlike some moisturisers I have used after 5 minutes I have no problems with getting my jeans stuck halfmast due to the greasy wetness of the moisturiser.
After applying this my skin does feel instantly softer and remains that way all day so even when I am getting ready for bed my skin still feels lovely and smooth. I am really pleased with this product and would have to say it is by far my favourite S&G product (of those tried so far!) and definitely in my top 3 body butter/lotions. It really does work and my skin feels so lovely.
This product is currently retailing at £8.50 in Boots for this 250ml bottle. However as we all know Boots often have 3 for 2 deals on so when combined with this I think the price would be really good. At its standard price I still think it is good value as it makes my skin feel so nice and I would definitely pay full price for it if I had to - once Ive worked my way through all the other products in my box first of course!
Treated myself to another Soap and Glory product yesterday! Well, I was in Boots with a good few Advantage Card Points behind me and thought why not! I have just finished my huge tub of Body Shop Body Butter so thought I would give S&G one more try.
As mentioned in my review of the Righteous Butter I had found it too thick and greasy for my skin, which was so disappointing as I love the S&G range so much, but this 'Daily Smooth' doesn't look as thick and was on the 3 for 2 promotion so I didn't have to pay the extortionate full price of £8.43!!!! Normally I think S&G are priced about right for the quality of the product, and you do normally get a huge amount for the price. Bu this tube is your average 250 ml, so £8.43 seems high. But as mentioned it was on 3 for 2 and I was using my Advantage Points so as a treat I though fair enough.
The tube is a rich cream colour with splashes of Pink as most S&G's products are. Daily Smooth are in black and cream writing which jump out at you and the lid is pink. It's a very attractive tube. The Tube is squeezy plastic and you have a nozzle on the lid which dispensed the body butter.
After my bath my skin was feeling unusually dry so I took the opportunity to use the S&G. It has cocoa butter and rosehip seed oil and smells amazing! The fragrance is flowery and light.
It is thicker than I imagined it would be with it being in a tube and I can imagine that when you get towards the end of the tube it might take some getting out. It is a thick white cream, and you are told to "Divide a small plum-sized splodge between your shins, knees, thighs, elbows, tops of toes and then everywhere else. Massage around until it all starts to sink in". I followed these directions and used it on my knees elbows, tops of my arms and all over my legs as they were looking worse for wear.
It is very thick and as it is designed with dry skin in mind it can be greasy, and I found that it took a while to rub in to the point where I felt I could dress without it transferring off to my clothes. Once the greasiness has gone I have to say that my skin felt amazing where I ahd used it. My legs in particular looked soft and moisturized, and those coarse areas of skin like your knees and elbows have nearly vanished!
I would recommend using a little less than the plum sized blob, as I found this was too much and that made it too thick and greasy. I used it again this morning, and used just a marble sizes amount to do both my knees and elbows.
I found this a much better product for my skin than the Righteous Butter and if you do just need some extra care to the odd areas on your body this is the cream for you!
Today I am reviewing the Daily Smooth body butter from soap and glory.
I received a mini of this as a gift last Christmas and have been buying it ever since !
Soap and glory is a UK range of cosmetics and body products exclusively available in Boots. The company does not test on animals but tests on ordinary women like us.
It can be bought in two sizes, a mini 50 ml one which costs £2.55 and a larger 250ml one for £8.43. The Daily Smooth is a body butter but unlike Soap and Glory's other body butter - The Righteous Butter this one is packaged in a tube, which I prefer as it is more hygienic than scraping it out of a tub. It is packaged in a shimmery white / cream tube with a light pink flip top lid.
On the front of the tube it tells me that the butter has an 'Amazingly effective dry skin formula' which I take to mean that it is aimed at people with dry skin and works best for them. It also says it has rosehip seed oil; and cocoa butter in.
On the back it says that it can be open for 24 months before going bad. It has the website address and tells you the best way to use it. Below that it has the ingredients and company address.
This product does not have the same scent as the traditional soap and glory 'Pink' range but has the scent of mist you madly, their most popular body spray. Personally I think I prefer the scent of mist you madly to the 'pink' line although both scents are gorgeous !
The scent is very flirty and floral and isn't at all heavy which I really like. I think this is a great summer scent as it very light and pretty and it does linger on your skin, especially if you use Mist You Madly as well.
I use this product by basically getting a small dollop of it in my hand and smoothing it over any area that needs it then massaging it in so it all sinks in. After this has sinked in and dried etc. my skin is so soft and smells amazing ! It is very thick in texture but it doesn't leave my skin greasy or have any residue just a trail of soft skin ! Honestly I think this is one fo the best body butters I have ever tried.
I would seriously recommend this to anyone that has dry skin and needs a heavy moisturiser that smells and works amazingly !
For my birthday this year a few of my friends and family all had the same fab idea to treat me to some soap and glory goodies. One of my presents was a trio of body butters and in that I received the daily smooth. Up until receiving this product I had only ever used the products from the original pink range whose scent I just adored and so I wondered if I would like this product.
The product comes in a circular tub much like the other body butters but this one features a shimmering off white tub with a pale pink lid. The lid features the product name and the soap and glory logo which is surprisingly small in comparison to the size of it on some of the other products I own. We are told that the body butter contains rosehip seed oil and cocoa butter and is an "amazingly effective dry skin formula".
Taking the lid off the tub the first thing that I did was smell the product which to be honest was ok but my opinion was that it was nothing in comparison to the lovely sweet scent of the righteous body butter when I smelt that for the first time.
I used the body butter all over my body after having a bath. The thick white cream was more difficult to rub in than a body lotion but this is the same for all body butters in my experience as they are thicker for a more intense moisturising experience. After rubbing the lotion in my skin felt somewhat sticky for a minute or two but this soon settled down leaving my skin feeling soft to the touch. I also discovered that I quite liked the scent of the product on my skin once it had settled down too. I do prefer the original pink scent but this is a more than acceptable alternative.
I have used this body butter quite a few times since I received it and have barely scratched the surface of it in the tub. You can use the product for twenty four months once it is opened though which is good as I do feel a tub will last me a long time especially when I alternate it with other products.
You can purchase this product from boots where it costs £2.35 for a small 50ml tub or around £8.00 from some other retailers for the 250ml tub. Boots do often have three for two across the soap and glory range and so I feel that it can be good value. I feel this is a good quality body butter which makes your skin feel soft and lasts well so it is worth the money!
Thank you for reading my review!
I wasn't really into Soap & Glory before, but when my grandma bought me The Daily Smooth along with Clean, Girls, I was very impressed. I went on the Boots website to find out how much this moisturiser is, so I know the price if I do want to buy it again. It is £8.43. I think that is a very reasonable price for such a huge moisturiser. It is the same price of a tiny tube of plumping lip gloss from Soap & Glory. So I think this body wash is very reasonably priced.
I used Clean, Girls, from the same brand as this , Soap & Glory, with a shower scrunchy, and after showering I used The Daily Smooth moisturiser. I noticed a big difference in my skin after about a week of using the products. Before using these products, my skin was always dry and rough. Now, my skin is noticeably smoother. I'm very pleased with these products and I think they are amazing.
My sister and mum have both noticed a difference in my skin, and they asked me what moisturiser I'm using. I told them about this moisturiser and now they've both gone and gotten themselves The Daily Smooth!
After finishing The Daily Smooth, I bought another one because I just couldn't resist it. It's so reasonably priced that I could be buying it for the rest of my life. This is probably the only moisturiser I'll ever use for a while. I'm so glad I discovered Soap & Glory because they have such great products and I'll probably be buying a lot more things from this brand.
I would definitely recommend this to a friend, and I'm now telling you to get over to Boots and buy yourself some Soap & Glory The Daily Smooth!
I tried this after I had been using the traditional standard body butter; part of me thinks there was no difference however I did notice the scent was a big difference. The body smooth was more a more subtle fragrance however still went on very nice and smelt very fresh and clean.
The product that I had was the mini version and have been using it after the gym, sadly the mini version really doesn't go very far, I have used it twice now and that's all I have gotten out of it, for the price I don't personally think this is worth it. The price is £2.35 for 50ml, personally I have established that I would much more prefer to buy the full size product and then dispense this into travel sized containers.
Overall If I had this product given to me, then I would be happy to use it, if it was on a good offer, I would purchase it also; however currently wouldn't repurchase, simply because of the price as I'd rather try another brand which is cheaper.
So, a couple of months ago, I truly discovered the Soap and Glory range, fell in love with one product (Mist You Madly), and decided to buy a lot of products based on, how much I loved this one product. However, for me, this is one product that didn't live up to expectations.
Soap and Glory are a bit of a new kid on the block in the bathing industry. If you haven't heard of them the company was set up by the lady that runs the luxury bathing line Bliss Spa. The Soap and Glory range, aims to offer high quality products on a budget, often at least half price.
What is the Daily Smooth?
The Daily Smooth is a body butter, supposedly scented with Mist you Madly, along with extracts of rosehip seed oil and cocoa butter. If you haven't heard of the famous Mist you Madly scent, it's from one of their body sprays, and is a super -sweet, white- floral, musk smell, if I'm being concise.
The product comes in a standard flip-top tube, 250 ml of it, which is a fair amount, as a body butter the product is quite thick, so I would have preferred to have had a screw tub, similar to the Righteous Butter. As per usual the packaging appears cute, girly and retro. One small gripe is I originally purchased this to layer with my Mist you Madly, and found it hard in Boots to locate which products to layer with the spray. This may partly be down to the shop layout in Boots, but also due to the similar looking packaging this has compared to the pink range.
Packaging aside, it does the job, what more can I ask for, what is the lotion like? This is where I have the problem, as for me this product falls at a number of hurdles.
My first and most important, for me, was to layer with my Mist you Madly, Soap and Glory tell me I will 'love the scent.' I love Mist you Madly, I am not a fan of this. From the tube, the main scent I get is the rosehip, a scent I am not a fan of, but I hoped this would develop when I applied. After applying this the scent is definitely plastic melon, with my body chemistry, I have asked friends and without telling them what they were smelling or my thoughts, they said a mixture of cheap, plastic and melon. This scent also lasts for at least an hour or two on the skin, so if you like it, the scent does have legs. The friends have it this time, it doesn't smell like Mist you Madly, so if you're mad keen on the spray, I wouldn't recommend this one for that purpose, without testing to see how it will react with your body chemistry.
Application and Moisturising Properties
Fine, the scent doesn't suit me, but surely the main reason people buy these body butters is for the moisturising properties. To apply, the butter is a thick white cream, which I find takes quite a bit of rubbing in and needs time to sink in, it is fairly thick, so a little does go a long way.
After applying my skin, felt sticky with a definite residue finish. In fact my Boots Advantage card was just magically picked up by my forearm, such are the like-glue properties of The Daily Smooth. My arm also appeared greasy for the next couple of hours. In fact, after applying I have to wash my hands straight away with some form of hand wash to remove the residue, as I find it really unpleasant. In fact, after applying this after my shower, I don't feel clean any more. Neither soap, nor glory, could I find with this tube. My skin doesn't feel soft, it feels like it is coated in something, a bit like Return to Slender, but without the firming effect. The appearance of my skin over the first hour or two after applying is shiny and greasy, and believe me I work hard to rub this product in.
So how soft will it make my skin? Well I was actually going to rate this product higher, as forgetting the product was a body butter and not a lotion. So yes, if you are moving from a lotion to a body butter, you will notice the difference, but compared to other body butters, I would describe this as mediocre at best. Which is disappointing, as Soap and Glory advertise this one as having a special dry skin formula.
Where can I buy it?
If you like tacky feeling skin, which has a scent that I think may be very dependent on body chemistry.
Soap and Glory is available in the UK from Boots, Harvey Nichols and asos.com, setting you back around £8.50 for the 250 ml tube.
Would I recommend it?
For the money, I think there are better body butters on the market. The Body Shop and Soap and Glory's own Righteous Butter, are both better bets.
Overall, the nasty scent, THAT RESIDUE, the price, and the mediocre moisturising qualities, I give the Daily Smooth one star.
As you would have seen from my other reviews I am a big Soap & Glory fan. I bought this as part of a 3 for 2 offer it costs £8 normally for a tube which contains 250ml. The body butter contains rosehip oil and cocoa butter, it is fragranced with Soap & Glory's mist and madly.
The butter promises to moisturise and soften and smooth the skin. The first thing you notice when you open the tube is the smell Soap & Glory describe it as blackcurrant, magnolia, freesia, vanilla and musk. The smell is really nice and smells like the mist you madly body spray which I find very fruity and clean smelling. The product itself has a very thick and creamy consistency. It feels very rich when applied to the skin and absorbs really well.
I noticed after I had applied this that my skin felt soft and supple. It took a while to absorb but it felt really rich and non sticky. The best thing about it is the smell it lasts most of the day. I have used this in conjunction with the shower gel and the fragrance lasts and lasts.
The only downside is when the tube is below half full it is difficult to squeeze it out as it is very thick. This is my second favourite Soap & Glory moisturiser after the rightious butter.
I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a luxury moisturiser at a reasonable price.
Daily smooth soap and glory body butter
This is just another product of my soap and glory products that I love! I received two soap and glory gift sets for christmas and I have to say I am loving all of the products so far, some more than others but they are all great (the S&G perfume..not as much) but I do love this brand.
*About the product*
It comes in a 50ml or 1.69 uz fl oz bottle, it is cream and pink and it does look again super cute like all of the S&G products do. It contains rosehip seed oil and cocoa butter. It also says that it is an "amazingly effective dry skin formula" and as I have dry skin it will be rather good to try it out.
The best thing about the packaging for this product is that it is in a squeezy tube, it means that you don't have to put your fingers into a tub body body butter (like the body shop ones) which isn't that hygienic and it means that you can have more control on how much product you want to use.

*My opinion of the product*
I have used this product a few times after my calm one calm all bubble bath/body wash and it is really great. It smells fantastic, it has the same original soap and glory scent to it, which is a bit hard to describe but it is kind of gorgeous sweet floral scent, it is just fantastic and I think the mist you madly (?) has the same scent. It is a white thick lotion and it is really smooth.
-Application and results
It applies so nicely, it goes on my skin really well as it is super smooth. It does not take long to absorb into my skin at all, it takes literally less than one minute to absorb, which I think makes it the best body butter I have used (as well as it fantastic fragrance).
I just apply this product as soon as my skin is dry after my shower. The soon you apply a moisturiser of any kind to your skin the better the product will work as your pores will be open due to the steam and it will absorb better and lock in the moisture too.
It is a thick lotion but that does not mean that it is difficult to apply, rub in or absorb, which this product I find that it really does moisturise my skin and the thickness of the product also means that it does not run off my skin and I am less likely to spill it.
It leaves my skin amazing soft and amazingly smooth, which is just fantastic. This is probably the best body mosituriser/body butter I have used. I have tried a lot including quite a few of the body shop body butter and various body moisturisers and this is the best one. It is for a number of reasons:
It leaves my skin incredibly smooth and incredibly soft
It absorbs really quickly into my skin so you don't have to wait around for it to absorb
It is gorgeous to apply
It smells heavenly!
*Price and availability*
I received this as part of the S&G miniatures range again like most of my S&G products and it can be bought from boots.com, asos.com (with has free UK delivery all year round) and also harvey Nichols.
Boots: 250ml: £8.43
Asos.com: 250ml: £8.20
It is a bit expensive and to be honest I have been using this for about 3/4 days and I have used quite a lot of my 50ml travel size, so you do need quite a bit of product but when it is applied then my skin remains soft, smooth and very moisturised all day!
*Does not irritate my skin
*Super super moisturising
*Leaves my skin super soft, smooth and more healthy looking
*Cute retro-ish packaging
*Some natural ingredients
*Great for daily use
*Fantastic on my quite dry skin
*A bit expensive
In conclusion, I just have to stress how soft and smooth and moisturised this product makes my skin. I have not used a body butter that makes my skin feel this sof and smooth, so I totally recommend this product for if you don't want to spend that much on a body butter, I suggest trying the travel sizes first - which may be available in boots but I am not sure and ebay is bound to have them too.
thank you for reading my review
I received a big box of Soap and Glory products from my sister for Christmas. I knew the bran were expensive but when I checked how much each individual product cost I was shocked. My gift set contained the full size 250ml version of The Daily Smooth Body Butter tube - an intensive body moisturiser that is scented with Soap and Glory's trademark perfume 'Mist You Madly's". Buying this tube on it's own will set you back about £8-9 so I'm very glad to have received it as a gift!
I really love Soap and Glory's packaging design as it looks so trendy and girly. It has a faux retro feel specifically linked to post war UK and it borrows from company's like Aussie when it writes it's blurb on the product label as a message to a cool and beloved friend who you're happy to hear colloquialisms from.The brand have a cream and delicate pink colour design and adorn their products with pictures of sparkly stars and 1940's style lettering. It's a design that says "Stay Away Boys!" and quite rightly as the body butter itself is obviuosly specifically designed for the females of the species.
The product comes in a large squeezy tube which sits on it's lid. It is a 250ml sized (or 8.4 U.S fluid ounces) tube. It has a flip style lid which is really easy just to click open with a fingernail and snip shut again. There is a dispensing hole straight through to the moisturising cream so don't squeeze the tube too hard as you open. The butter is quite stiff though, so you shouldn't have a problem with accidental spills.
There is a lot of information about the moisturising butter printed on the tube. A joke adorns the very top of the tube then we get information about the product's fragrance, ingredients and directions for use. There is only one thing to note of any serious nature and that's there is a warning not to get this butter near the eyes.
Soap and Glory advise taking a "plum sized splodge" and working it over your shins, knees, thighs, slbows and tops of toes followed by everywhere else on the body! I think their estimation of how much to use is a little inflated! I like to squeeze out little bits at a time and then work them over my skin. If I need more because the cream has sunk into my skin I just repeat the procedure. Doing it the Soap and Glory way can be gooey and you can end up using too much.
The body butter is white and has a thick, stiff consistency. It emerges from the tube like fat and rigid worms. It has a greasy consistency and melts into warm skin very easily. You don't need to rub very much for the butter to disappear into the skin. The effect of the butter is quite subtle as it doesn't leave the skin wet or glossy but does still moisturise and make skin feel like grass that has just been watered! The effects are particularly noticable on the driest parts of my skin such as the knuckles, knees and elbows. It makes my skin feel like it should be stroked! It makes my skin look radiant and healthy too as it smooths down any flakes of dry and peeling skin. The butter contains rosehip seed oil and cocoa butter as they have moisturising qualities.
The butter is fragranced with the brand's speically formulated perfume 'Mist You Madly's". This perfume is described as having "beautiful notes of Bergamot, Blackcurrant, Magnolia, Freesia, Vanilla and Musk". It's difficult to say I can identify every one of these element in the aroma. I can smell a blend of flowery fragrances which seem to be offset by a warm and spicy musk. I was surprised that on the tube it jokingly warns you not to eat the body butter. Usually companies only do this when the product smells like food. I would not say the notes of vanilla or blackcurrant in this perfume are strong or sweet enough to make the butter smell edible! It's a feminine fragrance that I'd say was suitable for all ages of women. It doesn't have a strong leaning towards any one of it's aromatic ingredients and therefore is quite a soft and delicate fragrance.
Using this body butter is a luxury experience and it makes me feel womanly, blessed and ready to face the day or night! It's a great body butter to give as a gift or if you can afford it to treat yourself. Soap and Glory actually mark this product with the phrase "we believe you shouldn't have to spend an arm and a leg to moisturise one" which is a bit rich considering the price of the product! Nevertheless it's worth it's price tag as it works well, smells great and makes me feel physically and mentally bolstered!

Anyone who regularly reads my reviews will know only too well by now that when it comes to toiletry ranges that I simply adore Soap & Glory. I have a gianormous stash of the stuff in my bathroom and its a range that if I run out of something I do splash the cash out and replace it and this is because I love everything about the range from the simple retro packaging it has, to the fragrance and best of all the results.
I am someone who buys alot of body moisturisers with the best of intentions of using them, use them once or twice and get cold and/or sticky or something and throws them in a cupboard and out of sight till they go off usually or I give them away (my flatmate loves me!). Knowing how much I love the Soap & Glory 'The Righteous Butter) and that I use it rather regularly when I spotted this Body Butter in a tube (opposed to like the righteous butter being in a tub) I simply was dying to give it a go and when I noticed it was the same fragrance as (Mist You Madly' which is a moisturising spray I use and love I was sold and happily bought it!
250ml white plastic tube with a light pink flip-top lid concealing a small hole to the bottom of it. On the front of it and in pink, silver and black writing we are told that it is 'The Daily Smooth', Amazingly - Effective Dry Skin Formula Body Butter 'With Rosehip Seed Oil And Cocoa Butter', scented with 'Mist You Madly' and that it has beautiful notes of Bergamot, blackcurrant, magnolia, freesia, vanilla and musk and that it is of course Soap & Glory and the size is stated (as I've listed already). On the back of the tube other information listed includes being told how to use it and warnings are given, ingredients and contact details for Soap & Glory are given. Lovely looking, easy to use tube this is.
The Body Butter Itself:
The body butter is white in colour, reasonably thick but easy to squeeze out of the tube. A little of this product goes a very long way indeed and it is a smooth, gorgeously fragranced butter.
The fragrance of this is light, fresh but very feminine indeed. It has a sweet fragrance made up of vanilla and berry fruits and a hint of musk as a base to the fragrance. It's just an extremely well balanced, fragrance wise body butter and once applied that fragrance lingers on the skin for a good few hours.
Applying it is simple, it isn't greasy but easy to massage in, dries instantly into the skin giving me the ability to dress very soon after applying it.
This is a marvellous skin softening body butter. It hydrates my skin from within and really moisturises extremely well indeed making my skin a pleasure to be in!
It has rebalanced my dry patches (on my knees and elbows) and gives my skin a nice healthy glow when its on as well as benefiting my skin in the long run.
As a little goes a very long way indeed (as I have previously mentioned), this actually works out an inexpensive treat in the long run and one I won't hesitate in purchasing time and time again in the future!
Available in Boots and Harvey Nichols priced at £8.00 a tube.
Soap and Glory's The Daily Smooth Body Butter.
I am a fan of the Soap and Glory range and received the Body Butter in a gift set at Christmas. It promises " amazingly - effective dry skin formula " . I do have dry skin so was hoping it lived upto this bold statement. It did! I apply this body butter once a week after having my weekly weekend beauty session (face pack, legs shaved, long hot bath etc etc). A good spodge does do most of my body. I massage it in and it does absorb well into the skin considering it is quite thick in consistency. It is not at all greasy like other lotions and body butters can be.
The body butter does have Rosehip Seed Oil and Cocoa Butter which i think helps aid dry skin. It leaves my skin soft, with a nice glow and i love the scent of my skin after using. The butter is scented with Soap and Glorys "Mist you Madly" fragrance and carries notes of beautiful Bergamont, Blackcurrant, Magnolia, Freesia, Vanilla and Musk.
At £8.00 for a 250 ml it does seem expensive but a little goes a long way with this product and the price tag is well worth it. Soap and Glory products are regularly on offer at Boots.
Thank you for reading.
One of the benefits of having a mum working for Boots is that she often buys goodies from the staff shop at vastly discounted prices, usually because the label is on slightly wonky. One of the brands she often brings home since she knows I love it is Soap and Glory, and the latest little treat she got for me was their 'The Daily Smooth Body Butter'.
Like many on S&G's products, this comes in attractive retro style packaging, with plenty of pink girliness, in this case a squeezable 350g cream coloured tube with a flat plastic lid, which allows this to be stood up on a windowsill or beside the bath when not in use. It has the Soap and Glory motto of "at Soap and Glory, we believe that you shouldn't have to spend an arm and a leg to moisturize one", and tells me that this contains cocoa butter and rosehip seed oil. It goes on to say that this product is scented with 'Mist You Madly' one of their popular scents, that contains notes of Bergamot, Blackcurrant, Magnolia, Freesia, Vanilla and Musk.
Now, I don't know about all that, but when I opened the tube, there is a lovely smell to this. I'm not going to lie and say I could pick out each of those individual scents, because I couldn't, but what I could smell was fruity and sweet, with the sweet vanilla and the citrus scent of the bergamot battling it out.
The butter is easy to squeeze from the tube and it white and quite thick, although it absorbed very well into the skin, without leaving any kind of greasy residue as some other products do . I have used it on both damp and dry skin and found it to absorb really well on every occasion . It leaves my skin feeling a little less dry and flaky, particularly on my elbows and kneecaps, which are where products like this are most needed on me .
My one criticism with this is that although I like the scent, I find it a little overpowering if used on my whole body, as it does tend to linger a bit . Therefore, I tend to use it only on the particularly dry areas, and use a non scented plain lotion on larger areas to help dilute the smell , unless I'm going out for the night and want to smell lovely. This is certainly a very feminine product, and I can't imagine many men using it.
This is usually between £7 and £8 for a 250ml tube, and is only available at Boots and Harvey Nichols. Boots have it on offer on their website at £5.33 at the moment though, so if you want to try this now is the time to stock up! Overall, I'm giving this 4 stars - it smooths my skin, leaving it softer, and it smells lovely, but can just be a little overpowering at times .
I received a Soap and Glory gift set for xmas containing eleven of their products, including this daily smooth body butter. The packaging suggests it is an "amazingly-effective dry skin formula", which I thought would be perfect for me as I have quite dry skin especially on my legs, I wasn't wrong!
The packaging is quite simple and girly. A plastic tube with pink and black writing, the logo and name of the product on the front and the products information on the back- ingredients, warnings, instructions for use. The lid is a flip down one (as you can see on the picture above), it secures well and it is easy to squeeze the product out.
The first thing I noticed when I opened this to use for the first time was the delicious scent of mist you madly; bergamot, blackcurrent, magnolia, freesia, vanilla and musk. It also contains rosehip seed oil and cocoa butter. The smell is very girly, fresh and you can still smell it for ages after applying which I love. Additionally although it is strong so that the scent stays it is not overpowering.
The butter itself when squeezed out of the bottle is white, thick and creamy, yet when applied to the skin it rubs in easily and absorbs well, I can dress pretty much straight away after applying it without it feeling like my clothes are sticking to my skin because of the greasiness, like I get with other body butters I have used. Also the butter really feels like it moisturises, it makes my skin really soft and smooth, no dryness in sight, yay!
Like I said above I received this as a present so did not buy it for myself, however after looking it up online, in terms of price it costs £8 from Boots for a 250ml tube. Although this is very pricey for body butter, I would definitely buy this again as I believe it works wonders. This is my favourite moisturiser/ body butter along with the body shop shea body butter (which I have also reviewed).
