It suprised me!
I am an avid fan of Soap and Glory products and I am working my way through the range. S&G offer skincare, makeup, bath and perfume products with a retro feel about them. They offer individual products, travel size products and various giftsets with more being available in the lead up to Christmas. One of their most popular products is the Righteous Body Butter. This is what you would expect, a body butter and contains aloe vera and shea butter for skin softening.
I have the travel size one so this description will be slight different to the fullsize one in the picture.
Righteous Body Butter comes in a lovely pink tub with a screw off lid. The mini version has a sticker on top with the S&G logo and how to apply the butter. Around the tub there is the name and what it contains. There is also a label on the base with the size, contact details, stating it can be open for 24months and the ingredients. I am sure the fullsize version has more information though the mini covers the neccessities.
*The Actual Body Butter*
Screwing off the lid, you are confronted with a sweet and distintive aroma. The butter is white in colour and fairly thick but creamy like normal butter would be.
There is a huge list of ingredients but the recognisable ones include
water, shea butter, glycerin, coconut and parfum.
*How to Use*
S&G recommend that you smooth the butter onto damp skin after bathing or showering and massage until it sinks in.
*Price & Availability*
S&G products are available in Boots and Harvey Nichols. The fullsize is 300ml and is priced at £9.79 in Boots. A 50ml travel size is available at £2.25 and Righteous Body Butter are available in various gift sets. I recently bought a new addition gift set with 3 x 150ml body butters and this one was included.

Ok, until recently I had avoided any sort of body butters as a past experience I had with a Body Shop one left my skin oily but I received this one in my much loved Soap and Glory sets and thought it would be a shame to waste it so I decided to give it a try!
First impressions - I have the travel size so its more basic than the fullsize tub but the pink appealed to me. The tub is simple to open and the smell revealed once opened is that similar to the Girligo Moisturising Mist and the Clean on Me Showergel from the S&G range which are my favourites so I loved the smell! I felt the consistency was perfect and thicker than body lotion so would massage in well. I use this after my bath and also on dry skin and it works perfectly each time.
The body butter massages in well and my skin soaks it up fairly quickly which is a bonus if you are in a rush. My skin feels soft and smooth after application and the delicious sweet smell lingers for a good few hours! I have quite sensitive and problamtic skin and I didn't react badly which is excellent!
Once my travel size pots are finished I will invest in a fullsize tub. These are fairly expensive in the first instance though they do special offers and the body butter is cheaper for more quantity than the Body Shop body butters so great value in my eyes! You do not need alot of this and it is fresh for 24months.
Thanks for reading
Summary: SUPRISED ME!
