I received Soap and Glory The Righteous Butter as part of a gift set a while ago.
~ Price ~
The one I have is the 50ml travel size version, which to buy on its own costs £2.50.
The full size 300ml tub costs £10.50 and both sizes are available at Boots or online at www.boots.com.
Soap and Glory products often come up in 3 for 2 offers in Boots so you may be able to find a better deal or even get it as part of a gift set.
~ Packaging ~
I must admit I love little pots so this 50ml pot is probably better suited to me than the full size version.
It isn't overly small and cute. It is nearly 2.5 inches in diameter and nearly 1.5 inches tall.
The pot is made from pink coloured plastic and it has a sticker with, 'The Righteous Butter' on the side and on the top is a sticker with, 'Soap and Glory' on in bold white lettering.
~ In use ~
The body butter is white in colour and it is quite thick in consistency.
It has the same scent as other products from the Soap and Glory range, which is called Original Pink, although I think the scent does vary slightly from product to product. I love the scent of the Scrub Of Your Life body scrub, but in The Righteous Butter there is something a little bit harsh about the scent. It is still pleasant, but less so than in other Soap and Glory products that are supposed to carry the same scent.
The scent is supposed to have top notes of leafy greens, bergamot and mandarin, floral and fruity heart notes and base notes of musk, oakmoss, amber and woody notes.
To me it is just a pleasant, rather sweet, fruity-floral scent. I can detect a slight woodiness to it as well, but it isn't too harsh like some woody notes can be.
The body butter feels soft and smooth on my skin. It is easy to rub in to my skin and it is absorbed quickly.
I find that you do need to use quite a bit of the body butter to get a good coverage, which was something that surprised me as usually with body butters I find that you don't need to use much at all.
The Righteous Butter leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and moisturised. It also leaves its pleasant scent on my skin, which lingers for a while.
I enjoy using this body butter. It feels good quality and it makes my skin look and feel hydrated.
I think it is reasonably priced and I would consider repurchasing this body butter even though you do need to use quite a bit of it to get a good coverage
I first started using this body butter when I received it in a Soap & Glory gift set for Christmas one year. Ever since it has become a firm favourite of mine and a huge part of my pampering routine!
You can purchase this body butter from Boots with an RRP of £10.50 but Soap & Glory products are often in 3 for 2 offers. This is the best time for me to buy because as a general rule I don't like to spend a lot of money on toiletries but I do make an exception for this brand.
The butter comes in a 300ml pink tub with a screw top lid. Soap & Glory packaging is known for it's attractive and girly feel and this fits that bill well. The butter itself is made with shea butter and aloe vera and the claim by Soap & Glory is that 'you might swear you're wearing velvet'. To use this butter instructions say to smooth onto damp skin after a bath or shower and to massage into the skin gently.
The first thing I noticed about this butter was it's scent. The scent has been named 'Original Pink' by Soap & Glory and if you particularly like it you can purchase other products in their range with the same fragrance. They describe this fragrance as 'orange leaf, lemon, peach, sweet strawberries, summer rose, gardenia blooms and jasmine' (www.soapandglory.com). I'd say this description is fairly accurate as it is quite floral and summery and I've loved this scent on other products like the hand cream but I find it quite overpowering in the butter if you apply too much of it.
The butter itself is a lovely thick and creamy texture and feels great when on the skin. I apply after a bath or shower especially after shaving because I've always had a big problem with dry skin after shaving, this butter has stopped this completely. I found after only a couple of uses my skin constantly felt moisturised and I felt no irritation after shaving so I really feel this butter has improved the overall condition of my skin. I use this on the majority of my body and the effects last a lot longer than other butters I've used. The fragrance also lingers on my skin for a very long time and I've had many compliments asking what it is.
My only issue with this body butter is the container, because you have to use your hands to scoop the butter out it is very easy to take out too much and I noticed the first couple of times I had the butter it ran out quickly because I was a little over generous with it. I now know I don't need as much of it to get the benefits so I have to be careful not to take too much out of the tub. I personally feel it would be better in a bottle. There is a righteous butter body lotion which I am yet to try which is in a bottle with a pump lid so this may be worth a try.
Overall I adore this product. My skin feels like it's had a lovely pampering session after use and it's definitely the best body moisturiser I've ever had. The fragrance may not be for everyone but I'd definitely recommend giving it a try! 5 stars.
I love body butters, I practically collect them and over the years there are a few that I always make sure I have at home. This, along with other Soap & Glory butters is one of them.
Firstly the texture, it's just decadent! A lovely thick and creamy body butter that smooths easily over the skin and absorbs quickly to leave skin feeling hydrated and silky smooth, no stickiness or shine. It really is luxurious and feels like a much more expensive product in my opinion. I also find it really soothing and use it after shaving my legs with no stinging sensation or redness. It seems to calm my skin right down and gets rid of any shaving rash.
The scent is delightful too! It's fairly subtle with both floral and mild fruity notes and not at all overpowering. Like all S&G products the different scents are complimentary so you can either intensify it with other products from the same scent family of mix it up with others in the range.
The tub it comes in is sturdy plastic in the classic pink that is the signature colour of this brand. As always the design has a funky retro vibe and it looks as lovely as it feels and smells. Who doesn't love beautiful presentation after all.
I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for something indulgent without the hefty price tag of some luxury brands. It works beautifully and is also visually appealing, I confess I leave my S&G products out in my bathroom as the retro graphics and lovely smells make a functional room a bit more relaxed feeling.
I got this pot of cream as a gift, as it wasn't a brand I'd ever used used before I was a little skeptical about how effective it would be as a moisturiser. However, from the moment I had opened the pot I knew I wrong.
The pot is pink with a picture of a women on the pot's lid. I think it's supposed to resemble a 1950s ad design and Soap and Glory always give their products a slightly humorous name that sets it apart from other skincare brands.
The actual cream itself is extremely thick and creamy and feels so satisfying to scoop out of the pot with your hands. I'm not sure what it's supposed to smell like but whatever it is I love it!
Because it' so thick it moisturises very well and you don't need to use too much. In fact, after shaving I like to use this cream because of it's intense moisture and all I have to use to cover the whole of my calf is a small scoop using my index and middle fingers. Proof to me of it's moisturising abilities is after applying it in the morning I can still feel the smooth moisture on my legs in the evening, something I don't get using weaker, less viscous moisturisers.
For a 300ml pot it costs about £10 - £11. It's not the most expensive body butter on the market but it's definitely not the cheapest either. However, personally I believe it's worth is as it lasts for a surprisingly long time if used sparingly. You can get it at all good beauty shops e.g Boots, Superdrug etc. And it's also available on Soap And Glory's website for £10.50.
It was voted Women and Home Best In Beauty in 2012. I believe this award is completely justified as, in my opinion, it works an absolute treat on dry skin.
I haven't used many Soap And Glory products before but after my experience with this cream I will definitely be checking out a few more of their products (hopefully they match up to my now high expectations).
Water, Shea Butter, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Seed Butter, Rosa Moschata Seed Oil, PEG-100 Stearate, Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol, Dipropylene Glycol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Methylparaben, Carbomer, Propylene Glycol, Ethylparaben, Tocopheryl Acetate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Limonene, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Potassium Hydroxide, BHT, Linalool, Benzyl Salicylate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Geraniol, Glyceryl Acrylate/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Tetrasodium EDTA, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Citral, Propylparaben, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Disodium EDTA, Butylparaben, Isobutylparaben.
How to use:
After showering or bathing, smooth a generous handful of The Righteous Butter onto damp skin and massage lightly until it all sinks in.
At Christmas I received the Soap and Glory massive giftset (after a few not so subtle hints to my boyfriend). A lot of people moan about bath and body gifts but I never complain especially when there from Soap and Glory. Anyway this body butter was included in the set and I loved it!
Soap and Glory is only available online and in Boots. It's slightly more expensive than your average bodycare products but it is of very high quality.
* Award winning body butter with softening shea butter and aloe vera. Smooth on a handful after your shower and you might swear you're wearing velvet. Scented with our Original Pink fragrance.
I'm a little lazy when it comes to moisturising my body unless I'm fake-tanning therefore in the Winter when I'm more covered up I'm even lazier! So when I received this product my legs were in a bit of a state and needed some TLC, I exfoliated them in the shower and applied this moisturiser afterwards to damp skin as instructed. I rushed off to work and thought nothing of it. By the time I got home I was blown away! My legs felt amazing, soft and silky and that was just one application.
The texture of the butter is very thick but still easy enough to apply (easier if your skin is damp) A little goes a long way. I'm not crazy about the smell, it's a little sweet for me but I'm sure other people will love it.
I tend to use this once or twice a week, usually the day before I fake-tan and I find it perfect for this. It's important to moisturise well before using fake-tan and this will prepare your skin perfectly.
Soap and Glorys packaging is gorgeous, it's girly with quirky titles, fun to look at and it immediately draws me in. The tub is pink with a screw top and has a vintage picture on the lid.
VALUE FOR MONEY:
This retails at £10.50 for a 300ml tub. I started mine in January and it's still going strong so I think it's worth every penny.
A brilliant body butter which I will most certainly be repurchasing!
For Christmas, I received a large selection of Soap and Glory products so I am slowly working my way through them, this being one that I have being using for the last few weeks.
The butter retails at around £10.50 for a 300ml tub, this may seem a little on the expensive side for a body butter, however it is inline with the RRP of the Body Shops. The Soap and Glory products are available from Boots, both online and in store, what I do like about the range is that it is quite often on offer, whether that be 3 for 2 or buy one, get one half price. You can also pick some Soap and Glory products on places such as EBay and Amazon.
It comes in a plastic pale pink coloured circular tub which measures around 3-4inches tall and about 3 inches in diameter. The product name, information etc is written in bold cream or black lettering which really stands out against the pink background making easily recognisable. The screw top lid is really easy to remove, even single handed which I like.
Upon removing the lid, my first thought was that this looked impressive; it resembled a nice pot of butter, just a little paler and which had a wonderful glossy sheen to it. When I first scooped a bit out, the butter had quite a rich and luxurious feel to it, I was a little worried that it might be hard to rub into my skin but I actually found that it absorbed really easily and I didn't need to apply a lot either.
According to Soap and Glory, the fragrance of the butter reads like that of a fragrance: "leafy greens, bergamot and mandarin, with a floral and fruity middle note that makes your nose tingle a little, followed by soft, sexy, musk, oakmoss, amber and woody notes". I would definitely say there is a lot 'going on' but I actually find the fragrance quite sweet and does seem to change as the day goes on, however I will say that it smells as good at the end of the day as it did when I first applied it!
Although I don't tend to suffer with excessive dry skin, there are a few problem areas that I like to focus on and I find the butter is great and making these look hydrated all day long. My other half does suffer and when we last visited our static caravan, he forgot to take his cream with us so he used some of this and commented on how good it was at hydrating his dry skin. He even said he would use it all the time if it didn't make him smell like a girl.
Overall, I would give this 5 out of 5 stars and will definitely repurchase some more butter when this one runs out.
Thanks for reading.
I have lusted after soap and glory products for a long time and finally bought some of their body butter recently.
I bought the travel sized version of this to see if I liked it first as it is fairly expensive. This is a small 50ml tub, which is pink plastic and has a darker pink translucent screw top lid. The screw top keeps it airtight and means that the butter does not dry out.
The writing on the side explaining what it does is in silver and the pink and yellow label on top shows the soap and glory label, in the font you would expect.
The plastic is great quality meaning this does not get damaged in a bag, which as it is travel sized is essential.
This is not an awful lot thicker than a normal lotion, which means that it does rub into the skin particularly easily. This is designed to be rubbed in straight out the shower of bath when the skin is still damp and this is where it works perfectly. This can also be used when the skin is dry and has a very similar effect.
I had enough here for a week and I found at the end of this period that my skin was much softer and had a lost of lot of the dryness that I can sometimes have problems with during the summer.
This does not leave my skin greasy this is always a plus point. I would also suggest this was not for people who had extremely dry skin as it is just not moisturising enough.
I am not sensitive at all but I think if you were this could cause a reaction. This is very strong smelling and there are an awful lot of artificial sounding ingredients. The smell is not one if particularly like as I feel it is very floral but as this only lasts a few hours this is some thing I can cope with.
Pice and Availability
This small tub cost me £2.50 for 50ml and I have seen the full size tub priced anywhere from £7 - £10.50. These products can be bought from the great majority of boots stores and also searching online brings up a number of results.
I think this product is well worth the price tag
I will be looking at buying this again and recommend this product.
The Righteous Butter is one of S&Gs staple products, and is available from Boots for around £10 (and is usually in their gift sets, so these are worth looking out for too when they're on offer), but there is usually a 3 for 2 or similar offer.
The packaging is typically S&G, very girly and attractive branding - I won't go into too much detail here as for me its whats inside that counts. The only notable thing is the tub is a good size and shape - Meaning you will be able to get every last drop of butter out of it! You also get a good amount of product (300ml in the standard tub, but they also sell 1L tubs!) which lasts a long time.
The butter itself is cream in colour and has very thick, smooth and velvety consistency - Very buttery funnily enough hehe. And it smells *amazing*, sort of fruity, sort of flowery but not too intense. Just lovely. And the scent sticks around for a good couple of hours after applying which is a huge bonus. I find that due to the consistency it takes quite a lot of effort to work it into the whole area of the skin without going overboard in quantity used, which I'm not sure is entirely negative, as that is what you would expect from a butter - But its certainly not something you can just slap on and go of a morning. But once applied, skin feels amazing. It absorbs exceptionally well, and skin doesn't feel greasy- Just smooth and moistusied.
The reason I'm giving this 4* rather than 5, is simply how long the moisturising effect lasts. In winter I get dry and itchy skin on my arms and legs, and this always proves to be a good test of moisturisers! Putting this on in the morning after a shower, the moisture boost only lasts probably about half a day before my skin gets dry again. Especially given the claim that the formula is for very dry skin, which I'm not sure it entirely lives up to. But immediately after applying my skin feels lovely and nourished. So I tend to use it intermittently in favour of other body moisturisers which take less effort to apply for similar results.
However, I've been using this religiously as a face cream - And this is where this product makes up for the above. I have normal/ dry and sensitive skin on my face (particularly after it gets wet), and it always needs a moisture boost overnight. A small amount of this (1p size) goes a long way, and when I get up my skin feels nourished and smooth. Its literally up there as one of the best face creams I've ever used. And it doesn't irritate the skin at all. Also, it works really well as an overnight lip treatment (just pile it on!). I'm about to run out of this, and am in two minds as to try one of their face creams if they're all as good as this, or just stick with this butter!
In short, I will be buying this again - Yes it is expensive, but well worth it in my opinion.
~A Righteous Body Butter from Soap & Glory~
I have bought and used a really wide selection of products from the Soap & Glory range and found most if not all of them feel very feminine and pampering. I like the way that the Soap & Glory product group includes a nice selection of mid range spa style products that include this lovely body butter. I find that the fragrance used in this body butter is quite pink and girly in a sweet, yet fruity, floral marshmallow kind of way that I rather like. I have bought and used The Righteous Butter body cream so many times that I have lost count and I like it so much that I generally have a tub of it in use, or waiting to be used. I do have to be in the mood to use this product as it smells quite sweet, so I tend to alternate my use of the body butter with other lotions or creams depending on which fragrance I am wearing, as it is very pink and floral and doesn't match well with certain fragrances.
~Using the body butter~
The Soap & Glory range offers a cute and quirky group of products including this wonderful thick and creamy feeling body butter that is easy to apply to the skin. I find that when I use this product it always feels very creamy and luxurious, with it leaving my skin feeling soft and nicely scented. I find that the body butter works really well if applied lightly to the arms and neck area as it leaves the soft skin there smooth and moisturized without the skin feeling oily or greasy. I like the texture of the body butter as it always feels nice and thick once you take some of it out of the storage tub, yet in use the body butter manages to be light and creamy on the skin at the same time.
This body butter always works really well for me when I use it and not only does it leave my skin feeling nice and soft, in my experience it also smells divine in a fluffy and pink feminine way. I don't feel that the body butter will appeal to those who prefer fresher feeling citrusy or green feeling body butters, or for those who tend to stick to anything with a mild fragrance, as the fragrance used in this body butter is quite strong and long lasting. When I use the body butter I find that it is quick and easy to apply to my skin, it smoothes in well and takes very little time to be fully absorbed. I am pleased to say that in all the times I have used the body butter I have never had a bad reaction to it after having applied it to my skin.
~The fragranced effect~
The fragrance given off by this body butter is lovely, although it is rather sweet and girly and won't suit everyone all the time. In my opinion the fragrance feels like lovely pink marshmallow blended with juicy peaches and exotic jasmine. There are also hints of orange leaf, lemon, strawberries, rose and gardenia in this body butter making a feminine fragranced effect that I feel really works well. I find that the fragrance lasts for many hours after the body butter has been applied and in my opinion the body butter alone is enough to add a nicely fragranced feel to the skin for day wear if wanted. This body butter could be layered with other similar sweetly scented perfumes or EDT products from ranges other than Soap & Glory if wanted, as the body butter makes a good base when used in this way in my experience.
~Using the body butter with other products from the same range~
I find that I can use this product along with the matching body scrub from the same range to give my skin a combined session of light exfoliation and skin softening as the two products work so well together. I do find that when using both products I require less of the body butter though as the scrub is also very moisturising. Using both products together is a great way to treat your skin if it is feeling dry or tired in my opinion, as the two products can help to smooth, soften, fragrance and hydrate the skin all at the same time.
~Product presentation and ease of use~
The body butter comes neatly packed in a girly/ retro themed pink plastic pot which is actually very functional. The vivid pink theme used sets the tone of the product as do the tongue in cheek instructions for product use which appear on the outside of the storage tub. I feel that the storage tub looks cute and sassy and is easy to use at the same time, as it is strong and sturdy, protecting the contents and keeping it fresh and ready for use. Each body butter tub has a simple twist on and off lid which I find easy to open and close without having to use too much pressure. I have bought the body butter in most of the available tub sizes at some time or other and find that the more compact smaller sized tubs work well if holidaying, as they can be stored away without taking up too much room in a case or bag if going away.
The price of the body butter is rather good in my opinion as a large sized 300ml pot of body butter can be bought for around £10. These larger tubs last for ages even with regular use as you only need to apply a small amount of body butter each time you use it. There are also smaller sized travel pots on sale which last well and these can be bought for around £3 in stores such as Boots. I like the travel sized tubs as they are so handy if you are going away for a few days. These smaller tubs take up very little room once packed away in a bag and can double as a day wear fragrance in many ways as the butter is strongly scented, with a fragrance that lasts for many hours.
I really like this body butter as it smells lovely, softens skin with ease and doesn't leave greasy marks on clothing once applied and absorbed by the skin. This is a mid priced body care product that is of a good quality in my opinion and I find that it works for me each and every time I use it. Not only does the body butter moisturise my skin nicely when applied lightly, it also smoothes and softens at the same time, giving off its very own delectable fragrance for a good number of hours after having been applied. What more could you ask for at such reasonable prices? Whilst the fragrance used in this body butter is quite sweetly scented I feel that it will still appeal to a wide range of age groups and tastes, as it has a very feminine appeal to it. My rating for the body butter is 5 stars as it really is a good body care product in my opinion.
Up until I received a big Soap & glory gift set for Christmas a couple of years ago I hadn't used any Soap & Glory products before. I had heard plenty of good things about their products though and read lots of good reviews and so was keen to try out all of the things in the gift set, and there was a lot to get through! This Righteous body butter was one of the products that came in the gift set in a 300ml tub. A 300ml tub costs £10.50, but it is also available in a travel size for cheaper. It is better value for money to buy the larger tub though. The products are available from Boots.
The main thing I love about Soap & Glory is the lovely floral scent that a lot of their products have. I can really pick up on the floral and musky scents, but this also includes aroma's of leafy greens, bergamot, mandarin, oakmoss, amber and woody notes.
To use you apply this and massage gently into your skin after having a shower or a bath. I have always dried myself then applied this, however have just noticed the directions state to apply this onto damp skin! I do think the texture of the body butter means I am massaging this into my skin for quite a while until it is all sinked in. Therefore applying this onto slightly damp skin may mean it will rub in a lot quicker. I will be applying it this way next time!
The skin feels very smooth and soft after, but I do think it helps when you use the Soap & Glory body scrub before this when in the bath or shower, as it then leaves your skin feeling much more softer.
The scent of the product stays on my skin for ages. My boyfriend always asks me if I have applied some because he can smell it on me, and then he started using it too!
It does take longer to apply onto the skin than a normal moisturiser would due to this being a thick body butter, but I don't mind as I apply this when I have time to on a night after a bath. I did use it up quite quickly but as it works so good I really don't mind! If you like the typical Soap & Glory scent then this product won't let you down as the scent really does linger on your skin for hours and hours. To get the most out of this product I would recommend applying it after using Soap & Glory body scrub as it has made my skin feel even softer than it does when I have just used a shower gel beforehand.
I remember the tests Gok Wan used to do on one of his programmes years ago and the number one body moisture product was Soap and Glory's Righteous Butter. At this time I used a coco butter from Wilkinsons for about £1.99 and could not bring myself around to spending £10.99 for the stuff no matter what they said. However, I am well known for being a moisturising addict in the hope that I will defy the aging process when I slap the stuff on myself so about three years ago my family started buying me a variety of things Soap & Glory branded for christmas.
Most years I have been bought the mini's ranges which include the Righteous Butter in travel size (50ml) and I tended to use this with caution as I didn't want to waste it. However, 2012 was the year for the 300ml full size tub! My partner treated me to the Righteous Butter plus two other full size items on a three for two basis at Boots costing £19.98 which is a good buy!
The Righteous Butter comes in a pale pink tub with a screw top lid, the style is very fun and retro with a 50's style which looks nice both in the bathroom and bedroom. The labelling has a pin up style lady on the top with cream, white and grey style letterings and colours.
The best part about recieving Soap & Glory gifts is smelling and touching them to test. When you take the lid off the cream instantly smells fresh wit hinds of delicate fruit and a muskiness which makes the frangrance subtle enough for those of us who are not over girly.
To touch the cream is firm but equally squishy and thick as are all 'butters', it feels of quality and is silky and not grainy. When applying I scoop a small amount on my two fingers then rub in easily, it is so smooth. The advice is to rub the butter onto damp skin so ideally after a bath or shower but I find it slides around on damp skin and makes me feel a little sticky. I usually use the butter on dry skin and find it soaks in the best this way and makes my skin feel fresher. The butter does not leave a layer on the skin but I find my skin seems to look much brighter and healthier after applying (this is either the massaging creating better circulation or the cream reviving my dull skin).
This butter is ideal for my sensitive skin as it is not harsh or heavily perfumed. The butter contains shea butter and aloe vera, aloe vera known for its healing properties and shea butter a quality moisturiser. I use the moisturiser on my face at night to provide a quality repair while I am sleeping and I have not found any increase in clogged pores or greasiness, in the winter I have less dry skin. I also use this all over my body and after three years have found that although it may seem expensive it does last longer than the cheaper brands and does a great job at beating dry patches.
The Soap & Glory range comes in sets and multipacks at christmas in the 3 for 2 sections. The individual Butter is £9.99 for 300ml and often comes into the 3 for 2 ranges throughout the year. The 50ml tub is about £3.49 although I have not bought this recently. So far I have been using my large tub since christmas and you can barely see that I've been in there!
Christmas time is my favourite, not only can I eat loads of food without guilt but it only means one thing; Soap and Glory gift sets! Without a doubt I receive a gorgeous pamper kit that soothes my thirsty skin that makes me feel like a goddess, but it's a shame I can never afford to buy Soap and Glory sets for myself all year round as regular products because I find them on the pricey side. My boyfriend knows I'm a massive fan of body butters as I can suffer from dry skin. Working on the wards means that the temperature in my work place is slightly higher than average and the duty room is absolutely stifling so my skin does take a beating! After a shower I apply body butter almost as soon as I come out to achieve maximum results as my skin is still warm and allows the product to sink in better! I've had great experiences with Soap and Glory body butters before so I was excited to give The Righteous Butter a try!
£10.50 for 300ml from Boots.
The packaging is very classic Soap and Glory, it's got the hot pink colouring and the classic and chic vintage style font. Everything about this product just looks expensive; the packaging is sturdy and complete with an easy to use screw top to allow access to the product. As I've stated before in previous reviews, the idea of a dip pot unnerves me because of the transference of bacteria with the amount of times you have to stick your fingers into the product so I always ensure that my hands are clean before use and I recommend this to other users too! The product itself looks very rich and creamy and the smell is absolutely gorgeous. The main thing I love about Soap and Glory products is that most of them have their own unique and subtle scent that isn't too overpowering but stays with you all day. I've used products in the morning and could still smell it when I'm getting ready for bed! Unlike their other body butters (Butter Me Up, for example) The Righteous Butter doesn't have the consistency of a body butter, it feels more like a very rich and thick body cream. Having said that the product smooths onto my skin very easily and sinks in quickly so I can feel the effects almost immediately and can get dressed right away!
My skin feels absolutely gorgeous almost instantly after using this product, what I love about it is that it's not one of those products that you have to use for a certain amount of time before you really see or feel the benefits. My skin feels moisturised and really soothed especially during the winter months where my skin suffers due to the harsh weather and central heating. I don't have particularly sensitive skin but I sometimes react to cheaper and highly perfumes products, something I don't worry about when I'm using this product. The scent is very fresh and I can still smell it on my skin a day after application which was a nice surprise and even my boyfriend noticed how smooth and supple my skin is after using it!
I would definitely recommend this product as a lovely treat for your skin. I really love Soap and Glory products but I can't afford them all the time and unfortunately have to wait until birthdays and christmases to recieve them as gifts or have a little bit of money to spare! Although the product is absolutely fantastic, it is very pricey for a 300ml tub and the price might put a lot of people off (myself included). It's a brilliant pampering product but not one of my everyday essentials due to the price.
I bought this product with 2 other Soap & Glory products as they are 'cult favourites'. I only bought the small version of this so it was 50ml for £2.50 and it lasted around 2 months.
The normal Soap & Glory pink packaging is expected for all Soap & Glory products. It is bright, pink and cute and looks really nice sitting on a table or on a bathroom shelf. It has the Soap & Glory label on top of it (not on the side as I am reviewing the small version not the large version). A good plastic and small tub which can be thrown in your handbag. It is a tub so not the best for people who are anal about such things but I'd like to think that I am not TOO fussy about packaging.
The product is not a thick cream but more of a hybrid between a white lotion and a cream/body butter. To me, this has a floral scent and is bitter sweet in my opinion, although it does say that it contains Aloe Vera, so some of the scent may derive from that as well. This is moisturising on the hands due to the Shea Butter however, as it sinks in fairly quickly it makes my hands feeling hard. It is rather odd that it is moisturising however if I bend my hands (which one tends to an awful lot) it feels like they are going to crack. So it is okay for my hands. For the body it is a no go. My skin does not feel moisturised after a shower or a bath and that is vital due to my dry skin. I once epilated my legs and I always apply a cream on top. So I decided to use this Righteous Butter and it stung! Oh the pain! It hurt so much that I had I actually hand to rinse the cream off! It does nothing for my skin on my body and I would not advise for people with dry skin to use. I also do not advise to use this after one has waxed or shaved because due to it being heavily fragranced I think it irritates the skin.
You can buy this from Boots for around £25 for 1litre but they are always having offers. That is a really good price for the amount of product you are getting but I suggest to try the product prior to buying it as it is only £2.50 and you get 50ml which lasted me about a month! Please consider that I do have dry skin and I always use cream. Always. Although I did mostly only use it for my hands (also other people use it in school as well)
I really wanted to like this product as I had heard raves about it and had high expectations. But unfortunately this is not for me. I do not advise this for overly sensitive skin or dry to very dry skin. Sorryy!
Hope this helped! x

I have a received a few travel sized pots of this in many Soap and Glory gift sets I've received for Christmas. I've never felt the need for body moisturiser or body butters but I thought I'd try it one time after having a bath. I put it on my legs and arms, I found it much too heavy on my arms and made me feel greasy, even though I smelt really nice. Next time I only applied it only to my legs, not needing much as I don't have dry skin. This worked much better, it took a little while to sink in properly and not feel greasy but when it did my skin felt extremely smooth and soft.
I like this product a lot and the pots are good as you can get all of the body butter out with no wastage! I don't think I would buy a full size pot because I have so many small ones and use so little it's going to take me a while to get through them and will probably stock up with small ones again in gift sets later this year.
I recommend this to anyone with dry skin, less so to people like me who don't.
As some of you will already know I had the Big Splendour gift set by Soap and Glory for Christmas and it contains ten different products - mainly bath and body care. I was thrilled to bits as I have never had a big set of matching toiletries before. It is brilliant to be able to use matching shower gel, moisturiser and hand and foot cream - it makes me feel really special!
The one that I want to tell you about today is the Righteous Butter body butter.
Cost and Availability
The pot containing 300ml of the moisturiser currently costs £10.21 at Boots. I don't know if Soap and Glory products as are available anywhere else but Boots is the only place that stocks them here in North Wales. On the plus side Boots do often have buy two and get one free offers on this range so it is well worth waiting until there's an offer before treating yourself. Of course you then also get Advantage Points which you can save up to treat yourself to even more Soap and Glory!
The body butter comes in a fairly plain, deep rose pink plastic pot with a screw top lid. The writing on the front of the pot says the following - 'Bored? Lost that rubbing feeling? Why not try the Righteous Butter with softening shea butter and aloe vera. A body moisturising formula so virtuous you might swear you were wearing velvet.' On the back of the pot there is a very long list of ingredients together with the instructions for use. Since the pot is made from plastic it can be thrown into the recycling bag once it is empty.
I unscrewed the lid to reveal a thick, pale pink cream. It isn't quite as thick as the Body Shop body butter - it is more like very thick cream than butter. The smell is unmistakeably Soap and Glory as a lot of the range has the same basis fragrance. I find that this light, flowery scent is very similar to that of the Hand Food and Heel Genius.
The instructions on the back of the pot suggest that you take a generous handful of the Righteous Butter and, after you have finished bathing, you rub it into your damp skin until it sinks in.
After I had finished my shower and towel dried my skin I initially took a small amount of the body butter and began to massage it into the skin on my arm where it disappeared almost immediately! I took more of the butter - after all the instructions did say to use a generous handful! I massaged it into the skin on my arms, legs, shoulders and back.
The butter was absorbed quickly and easily leaving my skin feeling lovely and soft and smooth and smelling divine! The fragrance lasts for a long while and, every so often during the day, I get a waft of it especially if I am warm.
This body butter is supposed to be for people with very dry skin and, although mine is not particularly dry, I still found this to be an excellent product for me.
As I am a great fan of the Body Shop body butters I was a bit doubtful about trying this one but I need not have worried. If anything I actually like this one even better! It is softer and the feeling on my skin is amazing. I used the body scrub, shower gel and body butter one after another and my skin felt and looked so much healthier I was really pleased with it all.
Although it is a bit expensive at £10.21 for 300ml it is cheaper than the Body Shop which is £12.50 for 200ml and, as I said before, if you wait a while there will be an offer on in Boots!
I am so very pleased with this product I have no hesitation in recommending it.
This luxurious body butter is smooth, creamy, and velvety with skin softening shea butter and aloe vera to attract moisture, in a special 'very dry skin' formula /
