Soap & Glory: Butter Yourself Review

Not ever having tried any Soap and Glory body products before, I was very very excited to try the butter yourself body butter as i heard many good things about it! I also heard many bad things about it, so I thought i should weight the argument out.
It's exam season and you would find myself indoors with my head in a book, so i deserve some pampering. A simple thing like moisturising my skin is considered pampering for me.
Immediately when opening the amazing packaging, like all Soap and Glory products you are greeted with a light pink/ white cream. The texture of Butter Yourself is very smooth and light and i find that a little goes a long way, considering the masses of moisturiser you get in the container. 

One thing, which is the most important, when it comes to body butters for me is the smell. The smell of Butter Yourself reminds me of a male aftershave.. which even my elder brother agreed with; he liked it so much he wanted to have it for himself! This to me, and many other people, is the biggest downfall as it is a good body butter but the smell is quite manly. Although, the musky scent does help me sleep at night so it is not too bad!

Would I buy Butter Yourself again? Along with 50% of people on Makeup Alley, I would have to agree and say no, i will not be buying this again but i will use it all up!
However, I am still intrigued to try out other S&G body products as the formula and amount you get for your money is amazing!

Have you tried Butter Yourself? What was your opinion? Can you recommend any other S&G products for me?

Staying Healthy: Snack Preperation

A big key to staying healthy is eating healthy and I find that at college there is way too much bad food temptation. I am talking about: chocolate, crisps, doughnuts and cookies. I found that the most sufficient way for sorting out this problem is to prepare my snacks the night before. Whether it is just putting an apple and a banana in my bag or actually chopping up different fruits, I know that it is way healthier than what comes out of the sweet shop or vending machine.
The key is to find the snacks that you prefer. For example, i prefer snacking on the fruits above(kiwi, strawberries and bananas) then other fruits, like grapes. Even if its a nutritional bar it is still a healthy snack. Remember, it is important to include most of your five a day in your snacks. 
I prefer snack preparation as not only does it mean you are eating healthier but it means you are saving money, time and increasing your brain power.
Preparing your healthy snacks also means you will have more energy throughout the day and preform better. I find that I do much more better in college work when I am healthily fed and hydrated, which is very important especially that exams are literally five minutes down the street.
