Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter Review

soap and glory the righteous butter review

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to talk about the Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter body butter. It's something that has been on my wishlist for some time now, ever since I recieved the Flake Away body scrub for Christmas. That thing is my holy grail of body scrubs - I couldn't believe the first time I used it, which was before I shaved, and my legs were still crazy soft and smooth! So, on the back of this discovery I was like, right, I need a luxurious, thick body butter to follow up with. NOW. I was sure the Soap & Glory body butter would pack a serious punch like the scrub did. So, did it live up to my expectations? Read on to find out...

WHAT IT IS:

As I'm sure most of you are aware, both the Soap & Glory skin care and cosmetic lines are available in Boots stores, as well as online. This is one of Soap & Glory's most infamous products, having won awards and having been something I've known about, but never tried, from my late teens. Whilst it comes in a smaller, travel friendly size tub and also as a lotion in a squeezy tube, the large size is 300ml and came with a £10 price tag when I bought it, at the start of the year. I recently saw it for £8 in Boots so it looks like the price has been lowered somewhat as it wasn't an offer. Luckily, my mother is a total Soap & Glory addict ever since I bought a bottle of Clean On Me, and she was more than happy to part with the cash to try out the body butter. The product, like Clean On Me, is scented with the Original Pink fragrance, which I also have in perfume. It's to die for, and I adore the smell of this!

PERFORMANCE:

Okay, so let's get down to it. Did this meet my expectations? Nope, not at all. I'm not going to lie. I was severely disappointed by this product. I have high expectations for all Soap & Glory products, as I'm almost always completely taken by them, however, this did not turn out the way I thought it would. It smells beautiful, and it is a luxurious and thick feeling body butter. It doesn't take too long to sink into the skin, but it doesn't make my skin feel as smooth and beautiful and velvety as I would be lead to believe by reading what's on the tub, and by reading lots of other reviews! It's worth noting that I used Flake Away and shaved my legs before applying this, too. But alas, it really just made my legs feel meh. I actually think they feel smoother and lovelier after applying some of my NSPA Mango Body Butter - and that cost me a mere £2 out of Asda. Plus the scent of mangos actually lasts on my skin, whereas the beautiful Original Pink fragrance of The Righteous Butter disappears in seconds.

I'm stating the obvious but Soap & Glory products aren't for those of you who dislike scents in their skincare, as most, if not all of, their products have a heavy fragrance!

It's also safe to say that, as this didn't even match up to my NSPA Mango Body Butter, it didn't come anywhere near close to my favourite body moisturiser, the Garnier Intensive 7 Days Body Lotion with Shea Butter! The Garnier product is another one which carries a price tag much smaller than The Righteous Butter, so it's a no-brainer when it comes to which one I'd pick up out of Garnier or Soap & Glory when it comes to repurchasing. I'm willing to admit though it does have one pro over my beloved Garnier, much like the NSPA butter does. As both those products are butters, they tend to sink in to the skin a bit better no matter how generous the scoop I use is, whereas with the Garnier lotion I can often squeeze out too much and it can leave my skin feeling a little greasy until it fully absorbs a few minutes later.

WOULD I REPURCHASE?

Sorry, Soap & Glory, but I'll pass on repurchasing The Righteous Butter. Granted, I didn't technically purchase it in the first place, but I don't think I'll be running out to buy this again if my mum doesn't when it's all used up. In fact, I'm not even sure if she plans to buy another either. I just don't think this is worth the £10 or £8, like, I could use that money to buy another tub of my trusty Flake Away, or I could purchase multiple other body butters and lotions that I prefer. This smells divine and it sinks in quite quickly, but the scent doesn't last on the skin, and my skin really doesn't feel particularly touchably smooth afterwards - even after scrubbing and shaving! This is a huge 'meh' product for me, and I'm so disappointed! I defo recommend to anyone looking to try it to try out the little tub first!

Have you tried The Righteous Butter? Was it a hit or a miss for you?
