I am deeply in love with this pistachio, vanilla and almond smell. It is unbelievable sweet and it stays on your skin for long time. Going to bed a few hours after the shower, I can still smell it on my skin. It may be only me, but I find this scent extremely relaxing and I love the feeling of being swathed by it.
I really hope one day, someone will be kind enough to make very similar (or even exactly the same!!) perfumes.
According to the info on the tube, the product contains over 25% moisture oils and butters, so it doesn''''t only wash your skin, it also moisturises it. Is this true? Well, the skin feels a bit smoother and it''''s not as dry as after normal shower gel, but if you have dry skin, you still need the moisturiser afterwords.
The product has interesting texture, it looks and feels a bit like clotted cream, it is also slippy and applying it onto wet skin may be challenging.
I usually wait a minute or two after massaging it into my body, so I can smell it on my skin for longer.
It is definitely too expensive, £8.00 per 250ml bottle is just too much for the shower gel/butter. However when you get addicted like me, you don''''t care :)
I have tried to find it cheaper online, but it usually doesn''''t make sense due to the postage costs. Luckily, Boots has it on 3 for 2 offers really often, so it makes it a bit cheaper.
I bought this Whipped Clean shower butter on a Boots spree about 2 months ago. I love Soap and Glory and I seen that the product had a lot of 5 star reviews so I didn't even think about it and just chucked it into my shopping basket.
Whipped clean comes in a tall pale yellow opaque plastic bottle with pale pastel pink detail and a flip lid. The bottle contains 250ml of shower gel. Like most other Soap and Glory products the packaging is very attractive, it is quirky and kind of reminds me of something you would see a glamorous woman using in a old classic cowboy film! Wrote all over the bottle is lots of information on the shower gel wrote in such a quirky way that you can not help but pick up the bottle and have a read through it ( does anybody else find Soap and Glory draw you in with their fun and quirky wording? )
The price of this shower butter is £8.00, quite expensive but make sure you look around online for good deals. I find Boots is the best when it comes to Soap and Glory offers.
What Soap and Glory say about Whipped Clean: Don't have time to moisturise? (Sheesh. We thought WE had it busy.) This incredible body-wash
-and-butter in one is made up of 25% moisture oils and butters including sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil, macadamia nut oil and cocoa & shea butters. Fragranced with delectable pistachio, almond and sweet vanilla. Creamy, cleansing and super-softening, it puts some seriously moisturising power into your shower!
I like the texture of whipped clean, it is like whipped cream ( no surprises there eh? ) and if you could have whipped cream which was full of skin caring goodies then Whipped Clean is what it would be. It is really heavy and smooth and a little goes a long way. Whilst massaging into your skin it turns into a really thick bubbly lather.
Whilst using this shower butter you can easily tell that there is a lot of goodness for your skin inside it. Whipped Clean says it has over 25% moisture oils and butters and I can really see and feel the effects of the moistursing ingredients whilst I am using and when I have got out of the shower. My skin is very cared for and moisturised after using this.
A downside I have found with the shower butter is that because it is so smooth and silky, it can sometimes slide straight off your wet skin, I usually turn off the shower and wait a few seconds before I apply so my skin gets a chance to dry slightly, this way the shower butter doesn't slide around as much.
The smell is probably what a lot of people love about this, its extremely sweet, the scent is described as; Pistachio, Almond and Sweet Vanilla. Personally, the pistachio ruins it for me, it is so overpowering and it makes it difficult to smell the Almond and Vanilla as the pistachio just takes over, all I could smell when I first used this was nuts, there was a really 'nutty' smell. I really dislike the smell, and I am nearly at the end of my bottle and it still has not grown on me.
I have had this shower gel for about 2 months and I use it 2 or so times a week and I have about 1/4 left. I don't think I would buy this again as I really didn't get on with the scent, if they changed the scent I think I would reconsider buying as I do enjoy using it and I love the texture.
I hope my review was of help, you may also find a similar review on my blog BeautyAdoration.wordpress.com or on my Boots account BeautyAdoration.
This shower butter is amazing. It is beautiful. It is creamy. It smells divine! What a start to my review ha ha, maybe I should actually explain why I love it so much!
I bought this butter when I saw an offer in Boots - 3 for 2 on Soap & Glory. "Lovely" I thought, and I decided on it as one of my products. I always have fairly dry skin and according to the front of this bottle it is a 'Luxe Cream Wash' with 'Superdew Spheres' and it includes 'velvety cocoa butter and shea butter' with 'grapeseed, sweet almond, and macadamia nut oils'. This sounded great to me as I imagined it to be a very soothing and moisturising wash (which I always need!) On the reverse it again tells us there is over 25% moisture oils and butters in the wash. Sounds very promising to the dry skinned girl sat here, and I was excited to take it home with me. So excited in fact that I actually used it only a couple of hours after I got home!
The minute I popped the lid I knew I had made the right choice. I could already smell the amazing scent from the butter! It was just yummy. I then squeezed gently to get a small amount of wash onto my sponge - it was thick enough to stay on the sponge without sliding off and losing it, but, creamy and soft enough looking to know this was going to be a luxury feeling experience - and the smell just filled my bathroom. Oh my, now I see why there is a warning on the back that it is not food!
"Warning: This is not a food, it's a body wash. (Hence, it will sting if it gets in your eyes and will taste terrible on toast)" - ha ha made me laugh a lot.
The bottle says that the scent is of 'pistachio, almond, and sweet vanilla' but I can closer relate it to fresh and gorgeous popcorn! Sounds bizarre I know, but that is what I instantly thought of. If I stood and smelled the scent carefully then yes, there is definitely the three aspects in there that are stated, but to me - popcorn is a far better description when it first hit!
The joy continued as I washed my body down. The butter foams up beautifully, and it is as though the more it foams the more scent is released. The foam is so soft and creamy and I felt like my skin was being soothed and caressed (this may sound crazy and OTT but honestly this is how much I love the experience of using it). It was almost a sadness to rinse the wash away - I wanted the scent and softness to remain forever! I was pleasantly surprised to find though, that when I did rinse, of course a lot of the scent did disappear down the plug hole with the bubbles, but my skin remained smelling sweet and tasty; a less overpowering scent than the butter right from the tube, but a lovely smell all the same (my bathroom also smelled gorgeous for a good hour or so after my shower - very very nice).
Once dried off I could feel my skin was actually quite smooth to the touch. Usually when I get out from a shower I have quite tight feeling skin, even when using a moisture wash. This was a different experience though. I still felt I needed to put a body moisturiser on, but to be honest, I think I may have been able to get away without. The 'need' may have come more from habit and having to feel the moisturiser soak into my skin, rather than the shower butter not actually doing its job. I did not have many dry patches at all, and my skin looked quite healthy. It was not at all blotchy like I usual am after a shower, and it did not itch either. These are impressive results in my book, and enough to make me say I will purchase it again.
The bottle which holds the shower butter is in the usual Soap & Glory style; the retro text/font; the retro image (in this case a stand mixer whipping cream to reflect the product name 'whipped clean'); and the use of yellows and pinks. It is a tall bottle which stands on its head (lid) and the lid itself is a secure flip top. The bottle's plastic is sturdy enough to hold form, but has enough flex to not cause any problems squeezing the product out (the shape of the bottle will also aid these points and the almost triangular shape aids in structure, while the widening toward the lid helps product escape - when you want it to anyway!)
The flip top lid is very sturdy. It allows the product to stand with ease, and is very east to pop open even with wet hands. It makes a satisfying 'pop' when opened and a good 'click' when closed. You know it is shut tight. I have had no problems with leakage or product wastage, and although it is stood on its head, I have had no issue with it getting messy or having butter dry around the hole and block it up.
There is a little more information on the bottle than I have noticed on some other products, such as being careful when using this not to slip (the oils can make the tub quite slippy) and one that surprised me was to 'keep away from children' as it is for 'adult use only'. The only reason I can think for this is it does smell good enough to eat, but whether there are more reasons it does not state, so people with families may want to avoid this one! Soap & Glory promote the '2 minute rinse' as printed on their products, which is excellent as it shows they care for the environment! "Waste Water Not. Want Water Not". (There is also a long list of ingredients, but I shall not bumph my review out with a long list. If you wish to see then their website is at the bottom of my review)
All in all, I think this is an excellent product. Yes I did get it on offer; yes it was 3 for 2 so technically free. Would I pay full price? Yes, I think I would - and that shocked me as I thought I would always say I'd never pay full price for Soap & Glory. I have to admit though, the 3 for 2 offers Boots regularly have for the range do make it that much more affordable! Full price this retails at £8.00 for 250ml....so like I say, the 3 for 2 is worth waiting for :)
I recently saw this in Boots after browsing the Soap and Glory Products - I love soap and glory so I get super excited when I see something new - so I bought this (and the buttercream body butter) straight away.
The Whipped Clean body wash costs £8, and comes in a tall pink squeezy bottle with a pink flip open cap which it stands on. The bottle has the trademark vintage design on the front that all soap and glory products have and has a picture of a an electric cake mixer on the front - giving you an idea of what its going to smell like!
To use simply go ahead and use it like any other body wash. Its quite thick and creamy and has the appearance of whipped cream when you squeee it out the bottle. You dont need to use much to get a good lather going on either. It feels very luxurious and creamy on my skin and the aroma is absolutely delicious! Its a warm mixture of pistachio, vanilla and almonds and the scent fills the whole bathroom when I am using it, its very moisturising too and leaves me skin feeling lovely and soft, and the scent also stays on my skin for quite a while after showering too. Whats great is that although it is very rich and creamy, it doesnt leave my skin feeling oily or anything after showering, which I hate. I usually follow this with the new Smoothie Star ButterCream from soap and glory too which smells pretty much the same.
Overall I would definitely recommend this, it can seem a bit pricey at £8 for the bottle but it is defintely worth it - this is my new favourite body wash - I love it more than Snow Fairy from Lush which is a big deal for me! I will definitely be stocking up on this one!
I am a massive fan of Soap & Glory and I get massively excited when they release a new product... Especially when that product is mixture of two products. I rush around like a headless chicken in the morning so when I heard there was a new shower/moisturiser combination, I had to have it.
What does Whipped Clean do?
Whipped clean is a shower gel with a difference. It promises to get your skin squeaky clean and smelling of the Smoothie Star scent. The difference is that it is also a butter so it will moisturise your skin leaving it feeling super soft and smooth. The product is 25% made up of moisturising oils including Sweet Almond Oil, Macadamia nut Oil and Grapeseed Oil and these oil are combined with the yummy scrummy Shea and Cocoa butters. The end result should be nourished, soft and clean skin. Two jobs done in one!
How do you use the product?
The product is to be used in the same way as your usual shower gel. It is to be massaged into damp skin all over the body and then rinsed away. If you squirt some onto a sponge, the product will stretch much further. Whether or not you moisturise afterwards depends on how well you think the product performed.
Packaging and Price
The product comes contained within a squeezable plastic bottle which has a pink flip top lid on which it can stand. The lid is easy to open and close even if your hands are soapy. The front of the bottle has an old fashioned whisk and the back gives some more information about the product in Soap & Glory's usual witty way. The product will cost you around £8 and it can be bought from Boots and the Soap & Glory website.
Application and Performance
The product has the usual consistency that you would expect from a shower gel although it is a bit thicker and creamier but only marginally so. As this is a Soap & Glory product, it does come with a evident aroma. This one is a bit more grown up than the Original Pink or Mist you Madly fragrance. It has been created using Almond Oil, Pistachio Oil and Vanilla, and it is quite warm and nutty.
I do like although I prefer the sweeter fragrances. I wasn't sure how the product would lather being so full of butters and oils but you do get plenty of bubbles if you're using a sponge. You can feel the creaminess of the product and it does feel like it's doing your skin a bit of good. It also makes me feel like it's doing a good job of getting me clean.
The bubbles are easy to rinse away and it doesn't irritate my skin or cause me any discomfort. Once my skin is dry, it does feel soft and supple, and it looks in a good condition. It isn't actually moisturising enough for me that I would skip a moisturiser but on those days when I'm in a rush for work it would suffice. It does leave me feeling really fresh and clean, and the lovely aroma does linger on your skin.
All in all, this is a fun novelty product for those who are pushed for time. It must be good for the skin with all those natural ingredients and it leaves me feeling really clean. It smells lovely and it does soften the skin although I don't think it does so enough to skip my moisturiser on a regular basis. This is still a good product for when your busy.
