After purchasing my fifth mini pot of this I decided I should maybe do a review of it - I obviously have used enough of it right?
I don't know why but I have never purchased the full sized version of this which is 300ml (£10.00) I always seem to opt for the travel size of 50ml (£2.25) well actually I kind of do. 300ml is just too huge for me! I like to put it in my handbag...I take it with me when staying in hotels...I put it next to my bed so that I remember to moisturize my hands before I go to sleep.
So a huge 300ml tube would seem abit silly especially when my bag weighs enough when empty!
Now I think we all know Soap & Glory is a lovely brand with equally lovely packaging so I shan't ramble on about the 50's the packaging as you can see for yourself.
But what I want to talk about is the texture of the body butter and also the smell. The texture of the body butter is slightly thinner than I guess most of you would expect - but if you rub it between you fingers if does feel quite rich. However the thinness of the butter really doesn't work against it at all. It soaks into damp skin perfectly leaving a trace of the product on the top of your skin. This is also ideal to apply after shaving your legs in summer - I don't know what it is about it but it really just umm well 'works'.
As for the smell of the product which I have to say is highly fragranced with lots of floral notes with a hint of vanilla. It smells very similar to Miss Dior Cherie perfume if you have ever tried it.
So if you dislike skincare/body products with a heavy fragrance I would say you should maybe avoid this or actually do have a whiff of this in Boots or Target.
But if you do want something that is glorious smelling to apply after a bath or shower your more than likely going to love the smell of this.
Overall I would say this is an ideal product for the coming summer months/holidays to apply and breath in the wonderful floral scent while you paint your nails! Okay, maybe I'm going abit to far but what I am trying to say is that for a mere £2.25 this does feel like a treat.
I'm also sure most of us could afford this with our Boots advantage points alone!
UPDATE - Soap & Glory products are now available to purchase here at ASOS
