Soap and Glory - The Righteous Butter... simply wow.
I will not be without this product now but first, a little back story.
So I have tried lots of different creams and especially for my face as I tend to have a nightmare of a face - skin wise that is.
My skin is dry and begins to flake around my nose, then my cheeks go pale and grey looking - they need moisture, however, with other creams I have tried I tend to find even a little bit of cream on my problem areas leads to oily skin for days and eventually a spot outbreak so I have generally had two choices for my look, spotty and greasy teenager or whithered old lady (I'm 25 - Neither should apply) so having bounced between the two for a few years I heard a positive review from an online video blog about 'The Righteous Butter' and so I decided to watch out for it.
A week later and I was standing in boots in front of the Soap and Glory section and felt quite impressed, all the products look like a love child of vintage and modern and being a lover of vintage looking items I was even more drawn in (a lot of the products have 50's -esque women on them - very pin up). The products all come in some sort of pinky coloured packaging, the pink is a sort of slamon pink, not too girls but girly enough for all ages to enjoy.
I picked up the 50ml tub for £2.35. It is a cute little pot that fits nicely in a handbag or in your make up bag - you can get a bigger tub for around £10 for 300ml but I prefer small 'easy put away' products.
The lid is a screw top and the cream inside is a nice thick, white coloured glob, it looks like it might be a little wet and maybe too moisturising (hello spots and greasy skin again) but when you touch it you can feel it is a little different to the usual stuff. I applied a little to my face before bed and noticed that it seems to melt into your skin, a little really goes a long way and you don't need to rub hard.
My face felt very nice after rubbing a little into my problem areas - my nose and cheeks. The best way I can describe the feeling is 'fresh' and I went to bed feeling happy, yet a little nervous that I would be oily in the morning.
Morning came and there was no oil... and... wait for it... mo dry skin either, I was elated! However I was suspicious too, how come I had tried loads more expensive creams and ended up with my usual problems yet one night with this cream and all was cured? I didn't quite believe it and so I decided I'd try again that night, and the next, and the next... It is a year later and I'm still using it before bed, and I still don't have oily skin - if anything my skin looks more radiant than ever before and I have expanded my usage of it too. I use it on my legs after shaving and again my legs appear more healthy now. I have even used it after being sunburned on my shoulders in the summer as it has aloe vera in (which is natually good for sunburn) and my shoulders didn't peel.
The smell is another reason I stick with this product. I have had loads of compliments about smelling nice when I use this product, It smells floral yet with mixes of sweets in there but is in no way overpowering like some scents can be.
My husband loves the smell of me which can only be a good thing.
Closing line is you really need to try this product and see if it becomes your favourite too, I love it so much.
Summary: Buy it next time you are in boots, I bet you love it.
