First of all, I love the packaging. Very girly, retro and pretty! I adore this body butter. It smells divine!! It reminds me a bit of Benefit's Bathina, 'Touch me then try to leave' cream. I've wanted the Benefit one forever, but seeing as it costs over £20, I've never bought it. So I'm glad to have found a body butter that smells equally delicious! The cream itself is very thick but spreads easily and absorbs quickly. The gorgeous smell lingers for hours and my skin was left feeling very soft and silky, which must be due to the ingredients as it contains shea butter, peach oil, cocoa butter, beeswax and 'fruit acid skin-smoothers' (not sure what they are!) So overall, I love this product, it's my favourite body butter by far, and more affordable than the likes of brands such as Benefit and The Body Shop, which I have always lusted after but never bought!
Next is the Scrub Actually body scrub. This contains kukui oil (?), mango butter and vitamin E to moisturise, and brown sugar, white sugar and apricot kernel oil to buff the skin. This also smells great, but is not as highly perfumed as the body butter. The scrub itself is pink and very densely concentrated with sugar. A little goes a long way so I can see this lasting for a while. As this is basically just made of suger, it's a great exfoliator as you can really feel the large grains, which I like as then I think it's working! So in future I'll be using this before I apply fake tan. So another lovely product from Soap & Glory!

I also bought some rings whilst I was in Highcross. I've never really been a ring wearer, but I saw these and had to have them!
