My Current...Body Butters

Hi everyone,
I thought I'd start a new little series on my blog called 'My Current...', which is where I'll create a post showing you which products in the same categories I'm currently using. I will share my thoughts on the products and give little mini reviews, hopefully this will be helpful to you if you're wanting to try a product that I'm writing about and hopfully it'll be useful to me by making me appreciate the products I own and use rather than lusting after new products!
So here are the body butters I'm currently using...

The Body Shop Coconut Shimmer Body Butter
This is a thick body butter with a very strong coconut smell which stays on your skin all day, it also contains shimmer! The shimmer looks really pretty on the skin, great for using before a night out. The only downside is it takes a while for the product to sink in to the skin, but it is really moisturising!
Dirty Works Supreme Cream Body Butter
This body butter has quite a thin texture, a sweet slightly floral smell and is pretty moisturising. It's not my favourite as it doesn't feel very nourishing compared to other body butters.
Soap and Glory The Righteous Butter
I think I'd go as far to say that this is a holy grail product for me, the smell is divine, the texture is great(not too thick and absorbs easily) and results I get from using this are fantastic! I pretty much always have an open tub of this on hand, but it is pretty pricey at £10.50.
Soap and Glory Peachy Cream Big Butter
I'm so sad that this has been discontinued! I only rediscovered it in my stash of toiletries the other month and it's a lovely product. It's a really thick yet kind of aerated and softens into a really smooth cream when rubbing in to the skin. It's got a very strong and slightly overpowering peach smell which has really grown on me and it's just SO moisturising. I'm sorry to mention a discontinued product, especially as it's a good one but if you have this hanging around unloved, please give it another go, it's great! Please bring this back Soap & Glory!
Thanks for reading and please let me know if you like this type of post :)


  1. I've only recently realised how many of each 'thing' I have, so this is a great idea for keeping track and getting them used up! :)
    I have the Righteous Butter, but Peachy Cream looks and sounds lovey - you've tempted me and now I can't get it - boo! ;)

    1. It's such a shame they discontinued it :( hope they bring it back! Good luck using your products up! xx

  2. Great list! I absolutely love the scent of the Body Shop Coconut products- so scrumptious! But you're right- the texture is a bit heavy, so I only use it during the colder months.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier- so much appreciated :)


  3. They all sound lovely, especially love Soap and Glory's body butters. I tried the blueberry one a while ago and it was so lovely, definitely want to try peach! x

    1. Ooh I wish I could've tried the blueberry one, why do companies always discontinue such lovely products? xx
