A Mixed Review Of Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter

Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter Review
I feel like I'm one of the few beauty bloggers out there who actually doesn't like Soap and Glory products. There, I said it. Bad beauty blogger award goes to me. I know so many people rave about them but in all honesty I just don't see the hype surrounding the products and I'm yet to find one I like. If you're a huge S&G fan then you may have noticed that the packaging of this product is slightly dated, I received this along with a couple of other miniatures last Christmas and as I've ran out of my trusty ole Elemis Frangipani body oil I thought I'd give this a whirl. I don't love this and I don't hate it. You know you have one of those products where you really can't make up your mind on it yet you just use it anyway? This is definitely one of those. 

The smell of this in my (extremely blunt) opinion is horrid. It's so over powering and heavily perfumed, it almost has a plasticky scent to it if that even makes sense?! I'm all about the sweet, floral fragrances but this just takes it to a whole other level. It does fade once it's been on for a while, it's just the first initial smell I can't stand. I love the pink, vintagey little tub this comes in, although I would prefer one slightly more hygienic so you don't have to put your hands in to scrap the product out. (Am I being a bit too OTT with germs here?!) My skin felt nicely moisturised afterwards, particularly my dry elbows, and it was easy to rub in as I tend to find body butters can take slightly longer to apply but this was really quick so that was great. The one thing I did tend to find a few times afterwards though was that it felt like I had a plasticky film left on my skin, it wasn't tacky or greasy it just felt like it needed to be washed off. This wasn't after every application so I'm not sure whether or not I may have been a bit too product happy but still, ones I've used in the past haven't done this if you apply too much so I'm not really too sure what happened there. Once I had a whiff of this I did worry that it would irritate my sensitive skin but it didn't which I was really impressed with! The pricing of all S&G products are amazingly affordable with this travel size costing just £2.50 and the full 300ml costing £10.50. Even though they're cheap (and would make my purse very happy!) you won't be seeing me swapping my Elemis goodies anytime soon.

As you can most probably tell I'm really undecided on this! It does what it says on the tin nicely it's just the scent I cannot bare. Have you tried this product before? What are your thoughts on this? Are there any products from S&G you can recommend to try and covert me?!

  1. I know what you mean about Soap & Glory, to be honest, I only have one product by them that I'd write home about which is the kick ass concealer!
    I'll definitely have to give Elemis a shot though!

  2. I usually read quite good reviews about Soap and Glory - it's a shame it didn't work for you! I love The Body Shop body butters as they smell gorgeous and are so moisturising. xx
