      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      One of my favourites

      I've had a 250ml bottle of this lotion on the go for ages. I just love it. It really is the ideal formula for a light and fast body moisturising treatment.

      First impressions
      I knew I was going to love this even before I first tried it. I love all the Soap and Glory range (except their hair products but that's another story!). I've also had many pots of the body butter which is great but thick to apply so this cream was just what I was looking for. I'm a big fan of the pump dispenser, clean and easy and dispenses just the right amount, ensuring you don't need to scrabble around for the lid to screw on afterwards. The pump can also be pressed in to a lock position.

      In use
      A couple of pumps does a leg, one for an arm. The formula is light and white and has the familiar soap and glory smell to it which I believe includes a sweet marshmallow ingredient. It matches my shower products so is very complimentary on my skin as a fragrance too.

      Performance
      The cream gives my skin a moisturised feeling for a few hours which I am happy with. It is particularly grat when used after an exfoliator and a great skin prep if you are planning to add fake tan, you don't have to wait too long to get the tan slapped on but it also helps to shift the tan if it is collecting in an area you don't want it to like knees or elbows.

      Price
      I can't remember what this cost and I think it actually came in a set. I have had it a while but find the S&G products are best value in the sets that come out at Christmas, Valentines and Mother's day so look out for it in these. Otherwise, expect to pay around £5-£7. It does last long enough to justify this price!

      Final word
      Love this stuff, will definitely buy it again. It works well with the S&G exfoliators and also on its own or before a tanning treatment. Very versatile and smells fab too.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A decent body lotion

        I recieved this in a gift set a couple of years ago. S&G products are available from Boots and are reasonably priced.

        The righteous butter contains fruit acids and claims to smooth skin, condition dry and flaky skin and reduce rough spots. This product has not been tested on animals, and I have tested it on myself :)

        ***packaging***

        The product is 250ml and is contained in a clear, see-through bottle with a pump dispenser.

        ***application***

        The pump dispenser makes applying the cream easy. The nozzle has a lock and unlock function to prevent any accidental pumps. The lotion is medium in consistency, it is not too thin so it doesn't run off your limbs before you rub it in; but not so thick that it takes an age to age to apply.
        It smells fruity and fresh, is easy to apply to the skin and it is non-sticky on the limbs or hands after application.

        ***results***

        Immediately after applying my skin felt quenched with moisture and looked smooth and supple. I was able to dress straight after applying the lotion without waiting around for it to dry.

        The smell of the lotion lingered lightly on my skin all day after using it. I could only faintly smell it if I smelt my skin however, but the fragrance does have lasting power. The downside to this though, is that the smell will compete against any perfume or other fragrance that you wear. Also, those with sensitive skin may react to this due to the strong fruit acids and fragrance.

        At the end of the day, my skin still felt soft and smooth. I don't have very dry skin, so I can't say how effective this lotion would be for someone with dry skin, however.

        Overall, this a good, basic body lotion that softens and adds moisture to the skin. I would recommend this product for people who have normal skin and who like a fragrant moisturiser.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        WOW! If you dont like the Body Butter try the lighter side of life

        I was in Boots last week stocking up on my favourite Soap and Glory products and headed stright for my favourites - Flakeaway and Clean on Me. These are my staple S&G products and as soon as they getting low I go and restock. As usual Boots has the 3 for 2 offer on the range and I studied some new products I hadn't yet tried, adn some old ones I had tested and couldn't make a decision. It was then i noticed "The Righteous Butter lite". (NB: Boots had packaging as the one shown above and some that were called "The Righteous Butter Body Lotion" so they must be in the middle of rebranding this item. But I did check they were one and the same with the Sales Assistant)

        I have used the original Righteous Body Butter but although I liked it, i do tend to find body butters just that bit too thick. so this 'lite' version looked appealing (I will review the righteous Body Buyyer next while I remember)

        As mentioned i did get this as part of the 3 for 2 Boots offer but full price it costs £7.00. For thie £7.00 you get a huge bottle - 500ml. This is the same sized bottle as the 'Clean on Me'. It is clear plastic with a pump action applicator. The bottle has large pink label with a 50's style photo in black and white of a woman in a towl. The new designed bottle had the same design and picture, but just replaces the text 'lite' with 'lotion'.

        Soap and Glory claim this product to be "A mega-sized (half-litre) bottle of super deluxe but lightweight Soap & Glory body lotion". . It is a much thinner consistency than the Butter version and spreads over the skin very easily. I prefer this much more to the Body Butter tub as that was very thick and didn't seem to spread very far. The lotion itself is a off-white colour and has the standard 'Pink' S&G fragrance mixed with lovely natural ingredints.

        It's ingredients include:-

        Shea Butter
        Cocoa Seed Butter
        Sweet Almond Oil
        Rosehip Seed Oil
        Aloe Vera
        Vitamin E
        Seaweed extract

        The fragrence is a mix of:-
        Bergamot
        Peach
        Vanilla

        S&G instuct you to "smooth a few pumps-ful of Righteous Butter Body Lotion onto damp body skin after a bath or shower. Double apply on any rough spots"

        The lotion sinks in almost immediatly and the next morning I woke up and my skin was lovely and smooth. It felt well moisturised and the usual tight feeling had gone! I sould still smell the lotion as well, but that did fade as the day went on! Also I only need a few pumps to do both legs and arms and have used it for just over a week now. The lotion in the bottle looks like it hasn't gone down at all, so I can see this lasting forever! This makes the £7 price tag more reasonable than I first thought!

        I am very impressed and love this much more than the body butter tub!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great body moisturiser that I officially cannot live without :)

        Only recently have I ventured into Soap & Glory products, but after many recommendations and ogling the awesome packaging for quite some time, I figured I'd buy a few products to try them out.

        'The Righteous Butter' Lite was one of them. I am so glad I tried this! I normally don't use body lotion as I generally find I don't need it much, but now that winter has come along my skin has felt incredibly dry and itchy. This has helped a lot to make my itchiness subside. It's £10 so maybe more than some people might be willing to spend on lotion, but you it is a HUGE bottle.

        And, of course, the smell. I'm officially obsessed with this smell. I want everything of mine to smell like Soap & Glory from now on. If you put this on in the morning (maybe with Mist You Madly on top? ;D), it actually has quite good lasting power, though only when you really sniff your arm :P It is supposedly close to Coco Mademoiselle perfume which I might have to look into buying, because I am officially obsessed!

        Final good point is that it has a pump, which is very handy :) I don't overdo it with pumps as much as I do when it's just a squeeze tube so it really does help to make the most of the product.

          Amazing Product!

          I got the righteous butter lotion as a christmas present last year and I loved it then, unfortu nately in the new year I kind of forgot about it but have now recently found it again.

          Today I am going to be reviewing the Soap and Glory Righteous Butter Body Lotion / Lite

          Packaging

          The lotion is packaged in a clear bottle with a pump to dispense the product. It has the normal pink soap and glory labels with 50s style women on the front and it says above the product name, 'Exposed ! Socialite reveals the secret to her velvety skin is...' then the name of the product. My bottle holds 250ml of lotion.

          The Product

          The aim of this product is to provide a lighter and thinner version of the popular body butter, the righteous butter that has the same amazing effects and I think that they did this really well ! It has the traditional soap and glory smell which is pretty amazing ! I don't know what it has in but its sweet and girly and just generally gorgeous ! The actual lotion is amazing too ! It's as thin as a normal lotion but has the effects of a a body butter ! That's a pretty good feat in my book ! It leaves my skin soft and supple and smooth ! The three s's of skincare ! I would really recommend this product

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A deliciously scented body butter that leaves your skin soft and moisturised for hours

          Soap and Glory is a brand that was created with the mind of selling beauty products that were big in size but not in price. Their products offer a high street alternative to pricey brands and are all vintage inspired in their design. All of the products have a pun in the name, hence the company being called 'Soap and Glory' instead of 'Hope and Glory'. It's not always obvious what the product is from the name and some of the slightly suggestive pictures on the front can have your guests trying to figure out what you've got lurking in the bathroom!

          One of Soap and Glory's best selling products which is award winning and my personal favourite is the Righteous Butter body moisturiser. It promises you sinfully soft skin that is as smooth as velvet and it most certainly delivers. The product has also been voted as the best body butter by the TV show, 'How to look good naked.'

          The body moisturising butter is a softening Shea butter mixed with Aloe Vera. Its new and improved formula comes with a dynamic moisture trap matrix which will hold the moisture in your skin for longer. This butter will moisturise even the driest and most troublesome patches on your skin. It can also be used as a hydrating lotion after sunbathing as it is soothing too.

          Shea butter has been used by people around the world for centuries. It rejuvenates the skin and maintains a healthy moisture balance. Shea butter nourishes the skin with Vitamins A, E and F. Vitamins A and E help to keep your skin healthy and reduce the signs of wrinkles and fine lines. It also has healing properties and some sun protection but you'll still need to wear your normal sun cream. As Shea butter comes from nuts, this product will not be suitable for those with nut allergies.

          The Aloe Vera within this butter also has healing properties that will bring your skin back to its former glory and keep it that way. It is soothing and will nourish your skin with vitamins.

          One of the many wonderful things about this body butter is its scent. I have never smelt anything like it, and its staying power is as good as a perfumes. Soap and Glory say that it smells like bergamot, strawberries and mandarin, with a floral yet fruity middle notes with a layer of musk, amber and warm vanilla notes underneath. To me, the aroma is subtly fruity and sweet with a mixture of cream and vanilla. A similar aroma can be found in many of their products and it is delicious!

          In order to use the product, you are advised to massage the butter into damp skin after showering and bathing until it has all been absorbed. I found that the water on my damp skin stops it being absorbed easily so I apply it to clean dry skin and I find it works much better.

          The product can be bought from Boots or online. It comes in a giant circular hot pink tub if you buy the bigger one and a handy travel sized tub if you choose the smaller one. Economically speaking you will save money if you buy the bigger pot for £10 than to repeatedly buy the smaller one.

          The moisturiser itself is incredibly thick and a pure white colour. Because of its consistency, you only need to use a small amount so it's long lasting. It's nearer to being a lotion than some body butters that I've tried, but it just makes it easier to use in my opinion.

          If you buy this, you will become addicted. I haven't met anyone yet who doesn't like the aroma and I've had numerous compliments about the softness of my skin. It smells so delicious that sometimes, I go without perfume as this smells better! Your skin really will be as smooth as silk, especially if you use the matching body scrub before it. You won't be disappointed with this product. I would be lost without this.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Summer is on its way so grab some 'Lite Butter' quick

            So we have probably all heard of good old Righteous Butter haven't we?
            But there is another Righteous Butter in a lighter and thinner version.

            Yes you've guessed it, its the The Righteous Butter' Lite! So whats so great about it then and why make a similar but so called lighter product?

            *********************************************************
            Well the full on Righteous Butter that comes in a tub, is a fantastic product in itself, but it is a much thicker cream, which does take a bit longer to rub into the skin and become absorbed. As a result the effect seems to be stronger than the 'Lite' version.

            The so called 'Lite' version is exactly that, a lighter, easier to rub in and quickly absorbed, more liquid form of cream. So better for every day use when you have less time to wait for original cream to sink in, as with Righteous Butter Lite you can apply and go.

            **********************************************************
            I do like them both, the results from both are good, but I would be more inclined to go for the original version and use it less often and maybe use some of the body moisturising sprays instead as they are even quicker to use.

            At 6.50 for a 250ml pump action bottle its a fair price for a fair amount of product. Its often on offer and can be had for less, so do look out for cheaper prices during promotional periods in store. It doesn't come in a smaller travel size.

            *********************************************************

            Using the product should also help you with dry or flaky skin problems and can reduce rough areas around the elbows, your heels and around the knee area too. With summer around the corner those areas do need a helping hand in order to look their very best don't they.

            Disadvantages

            Righteous butter lite

            I'm a huge fan of the soap & glory and one of my favourites in the range is the righteous butter. Therefore when I learnt they did a light version of the body butter I decided to give it a try due to the fact it cost slightly less. This has been sat on a shelf for ages but it's only recently that I've actually begun to use it.

            The righteous butter lite comes in a bottle with a pump dispenser. It is party of the normal 'pink' soap & glory range made to look like it belongs in the 1950s. The bottle has a list of four different things it either contains or believes will help your skin:
            1. includes proven skin smoothing fruit acids
            2. leaves skin softer smoother and more supple
            3. conditions dry, flaky skin
            4. reduces rough spots (on elbows, heels and knees)

            Just having a quick look on the Boots website this product doesn't seem to exist anymore. However, there is the righteous butter lotion which I presume would be the same as the righteous butter lite as the bottle is almost identical. The lotion is currently selling for £6.50. This is cheaper than the original righteous body butter which sells at just under £10.00.

            Personally I'm not a huge fan of pump dispenser bottles. Although the pump works fine on this bottle and your not pumping for hours to get enough product out I would just rather have a tube or a tub. I don't use this lotion every day as I mix and match what I use, this means that I end up with the horrible dried up product stuck to the end of the pump. A lot of people will find this pump a huge plus point though as it means you can't really use too much product and because it's a clear bottle you can see how much product is left.

            The righteous butter lite has the same smell as all the other pink soap & glory range. Therefore when you pump the lotion from the bottle it does come out looking and smelling like a lighter, slightly runnier version of the righteous butter. It rubs in to your skin well and doesn't leave it feeling greasy. It moisturises well but for some reason I find this to be a case of the original is the best as I don't find this works quite so well on tough patches like my elbows.

            I would definitely recommend this product as it works to moisturise fairly well. Personally though I prefer the thicker 'normal' righteous butter and as long as I can spare the extra couple of pounds I will continue to buy the righteous butter rather than the righteous butter lite. However, if you find body butters to be a bit too much for your skin then I would definitely recommend giving this a try.

              The best butter lotion i have tried

              I had seen soap and glory products in boots a few times but never bothered really to go and have a look at them, as i thought they would be expensive and i like to buy brands i have heard of as you know you can trust them such as garnier or dove.

              I got bought some soap and glory products for chistmas, and i have only just tried them out! I got loads of beauty products as presents but the soap and glory ones are by far my favourite!

              The first one i tried is this butter lotion. I decided to use it on my legs after shaving as they can get quite dry in this weather. The great thing about this lotion is the bottle. You can just use the pump to apply it to your hands, instead of using some cream and then having to pick up the bottle with slippy hands and try pouring it out. You dont get any mess with these type of pump applicators, and there is no risk of spilling any if you knock the bottle over! You dont have to worry about pouring too much, as you can control how much to use by the pump, making it last longer as there is no wastage. You get a generous amount with each pump from this bottle, and it smells gorgeous!

              I only needed a small amount of this cream as it really does go a long way! It spreads really evenly and absorbs into the skin really quickly. It is great if you are in a hurry, as they lotions spreads so quickly. There is no effort involved! Some creams you have to spend time really rubbing into your skin, but this one rubs in straight away!

              I was suprised at how soft my skin felt after using this product. I think this is such as good quality product that i only use it now and again, not every day i dont want to waste it!

              This product was not a problem for my sensitive skin at all, and didnt irriate me. It is great for use all over the body.

              The bottle claims to work really well on rough areas such as elbows, knees and heels. I found this made these areas very smooth and soft, this product really does work.

              This cream has proven skin smoothing fruit acids added to it, so you know that they are using safe natural ingredients in this product.

              These creams stand out on the shelves as they have such lovely packaging which is very different from other brands.

              I hope this bottle lasts me until next christmas, and i hope i get some more! This is a high quality product which costs roughly £6.50 for a 250ml bottle in Boots, but is well worth paying for!!

              Buy Buy Buy

              I found Righteous Butter due to my work mate purchasing a bottle and we all tried it. On first instinct i thought it smelt amazing, but when she told me the bottle had cost £6.50 I though hmm is it worth it..

              Righteous butter is made by Soap and Glory which is exclusive to Boots. This is great news. To buy my bottle of Righteous butter i used my advantage card, which was great, so really I got the product for free! Although now that I have a bottle i would definately pay the £6.50 for a bottle as its just the best cream I have ever used on my body.

              The smell of the cream is beautiful. Its long lasting and instantly and attractive scent to smell. The scent goes well with light perfumes such as Davidoff Summer, or Sarah Jessica Parker Cover in Bloom. Smelling the butter on myslef now, its smells like a delicous mixture of a sloral perfume and a luscious vanilla creamey butter. Its lovely.

              The bottle states it leaves the skin softer and it really does. Usually with creams i find i feel moisturised for a few hours, but with the righteous butter, i am moisturised all day long.

              The cream is great for applying to knobbly knees for chicken skin elbows. Its such a great cream. It makes your rough parts feel so much softer.

              The cream is great straight after a shower, and lesaves you smelling great all day.

              Definately worth the pennies.

              Disadvantages

              Summary: A great alternative to the Rightrous Body Butter but in a lotion form

              If you have read any of my previous Soap and Glory Reviews you will realise that I am a huge fan of their Products, you could say a little bit of an addict.

              The Soap and Glory range was thought up by Marcia Kilgore (also the founder of Bliss spa) and was launched back in 2006. Marcia had a desire to create high quality bath, body and beauty products at affordable prices through a belief that "You shouldn't have to spend an arm and a leg just to moisturise one" and with the Soap and Glory range she almost certainly achieved this.

              I absolutely adore Soap and Glory The Righteous Body Butter, especially after using the Flake Away Body Scrub in the Bath or Shower as it leaves my skin so smooth and soft but In the warmer months I feel that the Body butter is a little too heavy on my skin and want to use something that was a little more lighter on the skin but still did the same amazing job as the body butter. Thats when I decided that I would give Soap and Glory The Righteous Butter lite a go.

              The Righteous Butter light is described as a luxury super smoothing body lotion that has added skin smoothing fruit acids. It claims that the use of this product will make your skin softer, smoother and help to keep it supple. That it can condiotion dry, flaky skin and eliminate those rough spots that you can get on your heels, elbows and knees which sounds good to me.

              Ingredients include:

              Shea Butter - this is known for having many properties, these include nourishing, moisturising, soothing, comforting, healing, protecting and helping to regenerate the skin.

              Aloe Vera - is known to have many beneficial properties those of which include soothing the skin, repairing and promoting new cell growth, it is also very rich in Vitamin-E which helps to lock in moisture.

              and Fruit Acids -Fruit acids are known to help losen dead skin cells so that they can fall away, this leaving your skin feeling smooth and soft.

              Now the packaging for the lotion follows that usual Soap and Glory image that I always assosiate with the brand, ever so cute and sassy and very girlie, it has the usual quirky quotes and 1950s black and white images expected.

              I will admitt that its the packaging that is the one thing that really appeals to me with this brand, along with the quality of the products too, the products just look so good sitting on my dressing table or in the bathroom.

              The body butter lite itself comes in clear 250ml bottle with pump dispenser, this makes it so much earier to dispense and measure out the amount you use, makes it a far more hygeinic method for application and saves on wastage.

              The body butter lite is far more lighter in texture/ consistency than that of its predecessor, you could describe it very much more of a lotion than that of a butter, It has all the same unique qualities that the Righteous Body Butter has to offer with its nourishing and moisturising properties but just in a lotion form.

              This lotion is light and easy to apply onto the skin, it glides on effortlessly and is easily absorbed by the skin, it leaves no reasy residue it just leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth which is long lasting.

              This product also has the same unique devine smell that the body butter has, I cdescribe it as very sweet and very girlie, a combination of floral and fruity notes. Its a divine scent that I just love and best of all it lasts.

              This product retails at £6.50 for a 250 ml a bottle which I believe is a fair price as you dont have to use a lot as a little does a long way, I use it every day and find that the bottle will last me a good 3month before it needs replacing.

              A great Alternative for the warmer weather with all of the same unique properties as the Body Butter

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Despite eczema problems, I still use it! That says something!

              Where do I start with this product??


              The 'butter' itself is gorgeous. It is a very 'lite' texture as described, and is more watery than it's mother - 'The Righteous Butter'. This is ideal if you want a quick application if you are in a rush for work!


              It is perfect for haphazard application, as it has a divine smell, which is as good as any perfume. Two in one! Great for a busy less organised lady who still wants to enjoy a bit of luxury in a rush!


              The only issue I have with the product is the perfume (which is lovely!) in the butter actually sends my eczema crazy, which I am gutted about as it is so lovely, I want to wear it everywhere, but I can't as it hurts too much! But, I still use it despite the potential pain, as smell and feel of the cream is too good to avoid! I use it on unaffected areas of my skin, which still works well.


              I would reccomend to any lady who loves to feel and smell sexy and pampered. However, if you have very sensitive skin, beware of the range, try a tester first to see if your skin reacts.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                A lovely body lotion which leaves your skin beautifully smooth

                Soap and Glory - the righteous butter lite is my favourite body moisturiser at the moment!

                I have tried many different body moisturisers in the past ranging from boots to body shop to avon and this has got to be one of the nicest.

                At first I bought it for two friends as part of a present and they have both commented on how nice it is, so I asked for some for Christmas.

                The smell is absolutely gorgeous, quite fruity yet not sickly. A little perfumey aswell which makes it stronger and then the smell lasts for most of the day!

                It makes your skin really smooth aswell. I've used it everyday since Christmas day and have noticed the results. I use it all over my body so you would have thought that I'd have run out by now, but it seems that I've only used about 1/4 of the bottle! So its going to last me a long time.

                Costs about £6-7 and I think you can only get it from Boots, so it's a little more expensive than your average body lotion but is definately worth it and lasts longer than others.

                I would definately recommend this product to any woman or girl no matter your age!! It's simply delicious!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Great for every day use!

                I adore Soap & Glory products but I'm not keen on body lotion and creams in this cold winter weather at all! However I am a fan of the Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter (in the tub and the thicker version than this) for when I have really dry skin that needs a good old drink.

                However there are times when I want some more gentle, all over hydrating. I do suffer dry skin that needs hydrating and smoothing out occasionally but I'm also prone to greasy areas on my back and and shins and sadly the thicker lotions that I tend to use can sometimes help one area enormously but upset another so it' a bit of a minefield really!

                The main reason that I purchased this was to of course to smooth my skin and gently hydrate it but I also wanted it as I adore the Soap & Glory fragrance and I can't think of anything nicer then lathering my body up in loads of the different products that are offered from this amazing range!

                The Packaging....

                250ml clear plastic bottle with a pump action see through plastic 'arm' situated at the top that sticks out to dispense the product out of. The sticky label on the front is a light pink and white colour and in white and black writing I'm told 'Exposed Socialite reveals all and the secret to her velvety skin is the The Righteous Butter, Lite, super smoothing luxe body lotion'. Then there is a black and white photograph of a woman then under that I'm told:

                1 Includes proven skin Smoothing fruit acids!
                2 Leaves skin softer
                3 Conditions dry, flaky skin
                4 Reduces rough spots (on elbows, heels and knees).

                Around the sides of the bottle I'm given more information. On the left hand side there is a list of ingredients and a bar-code is there and on the right hand side I'm given some information about the product and contact details for soap & Glory are given. It's nice retro packaging, informative and easy to use as most Soap & Glory products are! I like being able to see the lotion through the bottle (which is a light peach colour) because then I can see when I need to nip out to buy some more!

                A Bit About The Product.. According To The Bottle....

                Butter the devil you know:

                Apply The Righteous butter Lite-Super Smoothing Body Lotion- all over after showering, paying particular attention to your rough spots (like dry heels, dry elbows and knobbly knees). Soap & Glory formulas are not tested on animals only on very picky people. For problem dry and flaky sin, we'd suggest you double your exfoliating efforts by meeting 'The Scrub Of Your Life (our uber-popular sudsing body scrub) in the shower at least three times a week.

                Using It....

                To use it you just rub small amounts into your skin where you want it of course. It's fast absorbing and blends very easily. It isn't greasy though and doesn't leave a greasy film on the skin at all and you can pretty much dress straight away after applying it. A little doesn't go a long way though because of that not very high grease content.

                The smell is a huge selling point with these products in my view. The 'pink' range is a smell that's a connection of bergamot, strawberries and mandarin with floral and fruity mid notes, and musk, amber and warm vanilla. In this particular product I can really smell strawberries though not in an awful fake way but in a very fresh way and well mixed one with the musk and other ingredients very well and blended superbly. Although girly this isn't an immature, overly sweet or intoxicating fragrance. It remains light and airy but the fragrance does linger on the skin from dusk till to dawn.

                It is so quick and simple to use and with that lovely smell as well it has a real feel good factor when using it and when it's on the skin.

                Overall...

                I would say if you have very dry skin or can't be bothered to use a body cream very often then don't go for this one from the Soap & Glory range you'd be best off opting for the Righteous Butter (in the tub) which is the much thicker body cream which seriously means buisness at combating dry skin. For me this is more of a light every-day type of product and if you have semi-decent skin anyway then this would be brilliant to add to your regime. I find this none agitating and it doesn't upset my sensitive skin in any way, shape or form but I wouldn't want to rely on this for anything more that a bit of light hydrating and fragrance and have to exfoliate etc to get the best results from it when I know that with the other product I have banged on about it just sorts it all out for me immediately!

                I do like this one for every day, fuss free use and it is recommended by me for anyone who wants a little helping hand!

                £6.36 in Boots.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  a new and exciting product that will stand out in a crowd

                  Prior to receiving this product as a chistmas gift, I had not come across the 'Soap and Glory' range before. So it was a wonderful treat to not only receive such a great gift but also to be introduced to a new range from 'Boots'.

                  At first glance the packaging is really very appealing. It has a wartime feel to it and it has a humourous content also.

                  It quite clearly states that it is 'not tested on animals' and lists all of the product benefits on the front of the bottle but in a very unobtrusive way.

                  I can not tell you the price, as it was a gift, but I do know that it was one of three products that I received, which were included in the 3 for 2 sale at Boots.

                  It is a 250ml bottle with a dispenser applicator in place of a regular screw lid or flip top. I found this personally very appealing as I find it so much easier to apply body lotion when all I have to do is press down on an applicator rather than fuss around with lids that you have to take on and off and which doubtless end up slipping out of your moisturised hands and rolling under the bed and into oblivion!

                  The 'Righteous Butter lite' is described as a 'super smoothing body lotion' and this is no word of a lie. It is light and applies very easily onto the skin. It does not leave a thick film or heavy grease but is easily absorbed.

                  The very best thing about this product is the smell....very unusual and very appealing. Its quite difficult to describe actually as it is one of the most original smelling moisurisers I have tried in a long time.
                  I would say it is sweet but tangy and the fragrance lasts for ages after application so it is ideal for using just before a party or date as you can still smell it long after application, so there is no need for endless trips to the toilet to spray on more perfume.

                  Everything about this range and indeed this particular product is different and qwerky, but in a good way.

                  Girls, if you like to try something different then you are gonna love this!
