Review: Soap & Glory "The Righteous Butter" Body Butter

Long time, no blog! I'm back on track, no time for excuses, let's just get on with the review! (:

Ok, so today I'm going to be reviewing the Soap & Glory "The Righteous Butter" body butter. First off, I'd just like to say I LOVE Soap & Glory. I love their products, their packaging... Everything about them. And this product was no exception.
Let's just start off talking about the packaging. What's that you say "don't judge a body butter by it's packaging"? Well... What if that packaging happens to be absolutely gorgeous? Is it ok then? Take a deep breath...

Done admiring? Okay I may be exaggerating slightly but come on, it is really cute.
So it comes in a 300mL (pink!) tub, with the lovely retro feel and little puns that are always to be expected from S&G, with a screw on lid, RRP of £10.50.

So what do you get for your money? Personally I think it's well priced, like all of Soap & Glory's products, it's middle of the range. Not cheap, but not incredibly expensive either. Not to mention that this tub will last you for ever. 
First off, I love the scent - it's very spring and summer to me, light, fruity, girly and fun - it is of course the signature Original Pink fragrance that graces many of Soap & Glory's products. It's thicker than a lotion, obviously as it's a body butter, without being greasy. It doesn't sink in instantly, but it doesn't leave you feeling slippery and oily for hours either, it takes a couple of minutes which is normal, if it sank it immediately it wouldn't be very moisturising. And moisturising, it is! I don't have very dry skin on my body apart from my hands and feet, but I still like to moisturise to keep my skin healthy, supple, and have a nice sheen. The Righteous Butter delivers all of that and more, with a beautiful scent to go with it. And it contains shea butter and aloe vera, which is always a good thing!

I buy my Soap & Glory products from Boots, though they are also sold at Harvey Nicholls and online on websites like Asos and the like.

If you don't want to splash the cash on this, you can always get a mini, which is what I did originally, and believe me it lasted a long time. I like that S&G offer mini sizes of their products, ideal for travel and if you just don't want to spend too much money on a full size product you may not even like, I definitely recommend you get the minis first, and if you like them, buy the full size. The mini 50mL tub (which still lasts a long time) retails or £2.50, bargain!
