Soap and Glory Smooch Operator

Happy New Year Everyone!
 

One of my lovely Christmas presents last year (feels crazy saying that) was a Facetime gift set by Soap and Glory. Included in that set was a Smooch Operator Lip Butter Balm which was naturally the first product I was going to try out! I know, I'm so predictable right? Anyways, let's skip to the crucial bit - does the lip balm queen like it? Yes, she does indeed. In fact, it reminds me somewhat of the Dior Creme De Rose Lip Balm which I seem to have lost. Let's not go into detail about that though. It's a sore topic.



The balm itself is a really light pink colour, just like the Dior balm, which was the first similarity I noticed about the two products. I find the texture to be quite similar as well. Just like Dior, it seems to be quite a hard product to start with but the more you warm it up the softer it becomes, up to the point where it slips on like a thick gloss. Although it does give you a sheen to the lips, it definitely stands it's ground on the nourishing properties too and that's the most important factor of a lip butter. After a couple of minutes the balm gives a cooling effect, almost like it's got a  minty and lip plumping edge. It's ever so subtle but still feels really lovely. What's odd is that it doesn't smell remotely minty. A more accurate scent description would be candy floss! Heaven! The balm creates a sheer baby pink wash of colour on your pout which I adore. It's incredibly flattering and makes this the perfect product to use in the spring for that fresh-faced, healthy look.

Over all I just can't get enough. I enjoy using it so much that I can't really fault it. I would certainly recommend it as a cheaper dupe to the Dior Creme de Rose if you're looking for a high street version that will not break the bank.

  2. This sounds pretty nice! I have a zillion lip products so I really need to use a few up before re-buying any more, I've always looked at this in Boots and wondered what it would be like.

    1. Tell me about it. I'm good when it comes to using up body lotions, butters, scrubs etc. But when it comes to lip products they generally just mount up. It's bad really but I just can't help but buy the new thing that's out. I'm the same with mascara, though I finish them up more often xxo
