But who knew i'd find a body butter that i love so much?
The body shops mango body butter doesnt impress me much, neither do any of the whole host ive been working through over the years, but i have actually found one that i love, love love, love love. so much so i just keep rebuying.
The Righteous Butter.
- award winning body moisturising butter with softening shea butter and aloe vera. With a new dynamic moisture trap matrix to help hold hydration longer - Soap and glory
A body butter with a thick creamy consistency, it spreads well. Smells divine.
It leaves my legs with that smooth feeling that makes me want to run my hands down my legs all day. It is a little floral, mostly fruity, A similar Mandarin smell to their clean on me shower gel, but a beautiful strawberry undertone drifts past my nose as i smooth this into my legs. Tested against my second favourite (Palmers firming cocoa putter) The righteous butter left my skin softer and more hydrated for longer. and with the favourite as the sun is now showing its face here in manchester, which means its time for bare legs and i want to look my best!
How i use it (and products of notable use)
Shower time, after shaving my legs and while the conditioner is treating my poor locks to some love. I scrub my legs, ass, stomach, arms (everywhere...) with Flake Away, 'Transforms your scaly legs from reptilian to radiant', it offers 'superhero strength skin smoothing'. I apple a generous amount and rub in circles. This seems to melt into my skin and leave my skin super smooth. I then wash off the excess product and take the conditioner out of my hair, then hop out of the shower into my towel. I pat my skin so its still damp, and i take my seat on the side of the bath and start applying The righteous butter from my neck down. It takes a little while to sink in, so i do other things while it soaks in then hop into some clothes and out the door!
For extra moisture on the go, i recommend Girligo, a moisturising mist for body, i spray a little on my legs and arms while im out to keep my skin soft. or if ive left my The Righteous butter travel size at home, i always know i have this in my handbag!
