The Soap and Glory Righteous Butter Creamy Body Wash was one of those products that you get and sits in the back of a cupboard for ages, for me anyway. I think I got the first tube in a Christmas set and it wasn’t until last week when I got the second in the Foam and Away gift set that I actually gave it a proper try. The tube holds 250ml and costs £7, though this tube will last a long time as a little goes a long way.
This is a 3-in-1 product designed for cleansing, shaving and moisturising so it’s sort of a body wash, shaving cream and moisturiser all in one. As I have dry skin and I’m always on the lookout for a new moisturiser that works well for me I probably should have tried it sooner. If you know of Soap and Glory you may know about the Righteous Butter body butter, it’s one of their best selling products, and this has the same original pink scent.
I do love the look of Soap and Glory products. I’m not normally a fan of pink but there’s something about the vintage looking black and white photos and the names that I just like. They definitely give off a more girly feel than a lot of products I use, but if you have a bathroom with a theme this would work for then I think these will look great out on the side.
The plastic they’ve used is the same as with all of their squeezy tubes and it’s probably one of the easiest I’ve tried when it comes to getting the most of the product out without having to cut it open. It’s easy to hold and squeeze to get the product out but it’s also good for when it’s getting near the end and you can fold it over on itself easily. The hole the body wash comes out of is a nice size and it’s not one that gets messy over time.
The product itself has a very strong scent, as with all of the original pink line, and it’s one that can be a bit overwhelming for some people. To me it’s quite a light scent in that it’s fruity and floral and there’s something in it that reminds me of buck’s fizz but with a floral perfumed twist. It’s also the kind of scent that does linger, I find all Soap and Glory ones do but this one especially, and it can overpower a perfume if you use this in the morning and plan on using a different scent.
I went into it wondering how it could be a three in one product but it does actually seem to work like all three of those that it’s trying to be. It looks a lot like a moisturiser when it comes out of the tube, sort of oilier and thicker than a body wash normally is, but it foams up really nicely and they’re soft bubbles. It does make it smoother to shave with than a standard shower gel as well, I think it’s the moisturising aspect in it. After a shower I normally have to grab a moisturiser of some kind but I found that I didn’t need to use any extra than just what I use in the evenings so it definitely worked in that way for me.
I think if you’re a fan of the original pink scent and looking for a moisturising body wash this is worth checking out. A little does go a long way and these tubes last ages so this is a few months’ worth of product for me at least. If you don’t know if you like the scent but it’s not stocked near you then find your nearest Soap and Glory stockist, Boots is great in the UK for it recently, and smell the Righteous Butter or anything saying it’s the original pink scent. They normally have the Righteous Butter and everything in the line has the same scent, no matter what the base is.
I do wish they did this in more scents. I’ve seen photos of one in Sugar Crush but can’t seem to find it anywhere, I’d stock up on them if I ever see any in case they’re limited edition. This isn’t my favourite scent from them, it’s nice to use every now and again but it is definitely more perfumey scented than I’d choose to use every day, but the product type is definitely a winner for me.
