As promised, I’m sharing my review of the Soap & Glory Daily Smooth Body Butter, which I purchased from Boots in Dubai, along with the Soap & Glory Scrub ‘Em & Leave ‘Em Body Buff (in case you haven’t read that review yet, check it out here). The Soap & Glory product range is available here at Sephora.
Very rarely do I experiment with bath and body products, but as I had only heard rave reviews about Soap & Glory, I decided to try out their popular body butter. I was already a fan of the Scrub ‘Em & Leave ‘Em Body Buff, so I picked the body lotion with the same fragrance as the scrub. Scented with notes of bergamot, blackcurrant, magnolia, freesia, vanilla, and musk, it comes in an easy-to-use flip open tube. With ingredients like shea butter, cocoa butter, rosehip seed oil, and coconut oil, the cream is perfect for normal-to-dry skin. The texture isn’t as thick as most body butters; in fact, it’s more like a thick body lotion. It’s light on the skin and leaves it feeling supple and moisturized. Also, you can follow it up with the Soap & Glory Mist You Madly Body Spray for a longer lasting fragrance.
Final verdict: Priced at £9 for 250 ml. (would be higher in India because of import duties), the Soap & Glory Daily Smooth Body Butter is a highly effective body lotion for dry, normal and combination skin types. I love its gorgeous fragrance and the fact that the scent lasts almost all day! The other highlight is that it’s not greasy or heavy on the skin. However, one drawback may be that it doesn’t come in a tub, unlike most body butters, which allows for easy application. While I really like this product and use it religiously, I wouldn’t recommend it to those with extremely dry skin who prefer thicker body butters.
