The Sweet Stuff: Soap and Glory Smoothie Star Body Lotion

sweet smelling moisturiser with pump

Moisturising for moisturising's sake can be a chore. We all want soft, smooth skin but sometimes those five or ten minutes that we spend massaging in oils and lotions can cause us to exhale one long sigh. But one small delight that can shorten that aforementioned sigh is a delectable scent. If something smells good enough it encourages you to douse yourself in it night and day, and, ultimately, there's no point in hoarding beauty products and not using them. It does your skin no good, nor your wallet.

I am certainly guilty of accumulating many a body lotion and body butter but recently I have been powering through one moisturiser in particular. Two factors have encouraged me to reach for it over other products I own; it has a pump (I could compose a poem to that small wonder), and it smells like sweet, vanilla-oat cookies. Soap and Glory's Smoothie Star Body Lotion smells blooming wonderful- it's warming and sweet without being overly sickly and it lingers enough to leave me smelling like I've just wandered through a bakery.

Scent aside, the Smoothie Star Body Lotion itself is very good quality. I like to use it in the evening because it doesn't sink completely into the skin immediately but it doesn't take too long (maybe five minutes). However, I do also use it in the mornings when I want to layer up vanilla scents (to complement the Vanilla/Cinnamon shower gel from Korres that I've been using recently). The lotion intensely hydrates my skin and leaves it noticeably softer and smoother. Given that this comes in a hefty 500ml bottle (which, believe me, will last you ages) I think that it's worth the £10 price tag - I'm personally incredibly pleased with it and would definitely recommend it. It doesn't have the sort of scent that I'd typically reach for but it really is a rather lovely product and now that the colder months are drawing in upon us I think its a suitable addition to any beauty routine.

Have you tried any of Soap and Glory's Smoothie Star range? What moisturiser are you using right now?

  2. I've tried quite a few of Soap & Glorys products, but not this one! I have given it a smell though, and I love it as much as you do :)xo

  3. I've been meaning to buy this for the last week or so. It's such good value for money and everyone keeps saying how great it smells. Might see if Boots have any 3 for 2 offers going on at the moment too.

  4. I love this, it makes me smell like popcorn!
