Hope everyone is well and enjoying a frosty winter day (it looks lovely out the window here, and miles better than gloomy wind and rain). The blog has been a little quiet of late, that's what comes from moving house just before Christmas, then catching up with everything!! I thought I'd share some beauty with you today in the form of Scottish Fine Soaps Larch and Lavender Body Butter.
I was kindly sent this to try out before Christmas, and first impressions were good. It comes in a 200ml jar and I really liked the branding, although it might help my favourite colour is purple. The box and jar has simple and clear wording on, with a simple graphic to reflect the ingredients of the product - I think it would stand out to me on a shelf, especially with the purple accents on the packaging.
The ingredients I was a little sceptical about though, I am a big fan of the relaxing properties and scent of lavender, but I wasn't sure about combining it with larch, and the fact that the box promises 'uplifting scents of Scottish Woodland in Spring', would I want to use something smelling of Woodland? Actually yes I would! Just like the other Scottish Fine Soaps products I've tried the scent is there and lingers - but it's not overpowering at all, or plastic/artificial smelling.
|Scottish Fine Soaps Review Item|
I did go through a period where I had a lot of beauty products - body butters, hand cream etc. as presents and just didn't use them that often - I'm not always the best at keeping up with routines - but so far I'm pleased with this product and would consider buying it again, although I think this jar is going to last me a long time yet, so it might be a while before I am in the market for a new body butter!!
Here's the product link if anyone would like to check it out for themselves - a 200ml jar currently retails at £11.50. Do let me know if you've tried any of their other products before, would be good to know what else you've rated.
Thanks for reading and have a good day everyone.
