Soap & Glory The Righteous Body Butter
Advantages: Scent, Quality, Looks great
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!
Summary: A great, funky skin moisturiser
