Soap & Glory - Smoothie Star Body Buttercream

Today i have the most amazing lightly whipped body buttercream to show you from the ever so popular brand Soap & Glory.
I have to start of with the smell its just ...oh my gosh..flipping amazing (copping a whiff at this moment in time)
its scent is that of freshly baked cookies, seriously if you haven't smelt this before next time your in boots have a sniff (only if you don't mind sickly sweet smells that is), i did this and ended up buying ...along with some others with a similar fragrance in the 3 for 2 offer they have at the moment. YUMMY!


Now for the serious stuff.
Soap & Glory Smoothie Star is a lightly whipped body buttercream that has a intensive 5-oil super nourishing formula it contains Sweet Almond Oil and Coconut oil which are famous for their skin smoothing properties and gorgeous smell!
Its scented with Pistachio, Almond and Sweet Vanilla, and the cream itself is not like your regular body butter its beautifully light but rich at the same time if that makes sense? it just absorbs so easily i prefer this formula so much more over a  Body Shop body butter for example, just because i find those ones to be thick but also take a while to rub it all in, the Soap & Glory one just sinks in so easy but feels luxurious at the same time, i suppose it states this on the tub as its lightly whipped.


The Packaging is the usual it has the lovely retro girly thing going on with their funny little sayings on the tub such as "want silky, sexy, famously soft skin? rub your elbows with a Smoothie Star" then underneath it carries on saying "(in fact,we'd suggest rubbing your whole body, we just didn't think that it had the same  'ring') ...this made me laugh so that's a nice touch to the product, I'm easily amused.
You get 300ml of product for £10.50 here



Overall i just think this is such a lovely product, its super moisturising and has left my skin so silky, the fragrance stays on your skin for most of the day and the smell is just divine its just so comforting and is such a lovely treat before bedtime, i can see myself re-purchasing this many more times in the near future.

I will have a follow up post of the perfect partner to this shortly, so keep an eye out if it takes your fancy.
