Calling my skin dry doesn’t even begin to cover it. My skin is Mojave Desert-dry. Nay, Atacama Desert-dry! I lotion multiple times a day just to maintain my dry skin, if that puts it into perspective. Little did I know, when Soap & Glory sent me a care package, they were sending me the answer to my dry skin dreams: The Righteous Butter.
The Righteous Butter is a body butter to end all body butters. It’s thick and creamy, but very easy to smooth across your skin. Because it’s so spreadable, you can really stretch out the jar. Mine has lasted me forever! It has a very rich consistency that doesn’t immediately sink into your skin, but after 10 minutes or so it fully absorbs without leaving your skin feeling oily or greasy.
It’s made with shea butter and aloe vera to moisturize and protect your very dry, dehydrated skin. The fragrance is Soap & Glory’s Original Pink fragrance, which is a little strong, but I love the fresh, fruity, citrusy scent. It’s a blend of orange leaf, lemon, peach, strawberry, rose, gardenia and jasmine. The formula contains parabens, but since the FDA says parabens are safe in skincare and cosmetics, it doesn’t bother me.
A 300ml tub of The Righteous Butter is only $15 dollars. I’ve been using mine once a day for several months, on my legs and arms, so I say it’s $15 very well spent. I just ran out the other day, and as soon as my broken leg is healed, I’m getting my butt into Ulta to buy more, plus The Righteous Butter Body Lotion. That’s right, they made a body lotion, so you can use the lotion for everyday and the body butter when you’re particularly dry. Or, body lotion for day and body butter for night, whatever works for your skin.
I hardly ever attach to body care products, but The Righteous Butter has found itself a permanent spot on my shelf. I even got the Happy Pamper Gift Set so I could have a travel size body butter to take with me when I fly.
