Soap And Glory Orangeasm Body Butter & Body Wash Product Review

The next product in my Soap & Glory Series, is ORANGEasm. Orangeasm is Soap & Glory's newest scent and collection. It's not available in the States (yet), but is available in the UK. I ordered mine from a UK eBay seller. I'm going to cut straight to the chase. I hate it (LOL) and will not buy it again. It's not the product that I dislike, but THE SCENT. I was expecting it to smell like sweet oranges and this turned out to have a SOUR orange smell. It smells BITTER, SOUR, MUSTY and STALE to my nose. [If you're under 21, skip the next sentence.] I want to know who the HELL are the Soap & Glory girls f*cking, because this doesn't come close to an orgasm at all! HaHaHa If you like sour and bitter oranges (citrus), then you'll love this. If not, stay away. How the product works, is a different story. The Orangeasm Body Wash is in the same great packaging w/pump as all Soap & Glory Body washes. It dispenses and lathers well. The body wash is very creamy and moisturizing. It rinses clean. It's scented with fresh green mandarin, sicilian lemon and sweet orange peel oils (all three equal sour-sour-sour HaHaHa) The Orangeasm Body Butter has the same scent as the body wash and whipped consistency as all Soap & Glory body butters. It's a light to medium weight (whipped) and easily absorbs into the skin. This particular body butter also looks like it has bits of orange in it (see gif below). It's very moisturizing! This collection also has a Super Tonic Fragrance you can purchase with the same scent, but I'm glad I didn't order it, because I don't want to smell like this. HaHaHa Bottom line, it's a really good product but I (personally) HATE the scent. Go to the store and do a sniff test. YOU may like it. I've read some reviews from other bloggers and this is a scent, you'll either LOVE or HATE. I ONLY gave these a Bittersweet rating because they work so well. My favorite collection is still Sugar Crush :) They should've named that Sugar Obsession! LOL Have A Great Weekend.

Orangeasm Body Butter (RRP £10.50/ €12.29 - 300ml)

Orangeasm Body Wash (RRP £6.50/ €7.61-500ml)

Jane @ anothermommablog.blogspot.com said...

LMAO! I dont want to smell like sour, bitter oranges either, yuck. Maybe their definition of the big O was hitting a dry spell during this particular product launch. Thanks for the review, I'll be avoiding this one for sure.

Anonymous said...

Hahaha so funny. I'm under 21 but I read the sentence anyway cos I felt like a daredevil badass. You know how cray I get about scents so I'm liking the look of your oranges better than the body butter. It actually looks quite nice in the pot, shame it has to be so foul on the nose. Hope you're doing well. Rosemary x


crafty-zone said...

I haven't seen only orange body butter yet, it has to smell amazing <3


The Dragonfruit said...

Bahaha, so I'm ALMOST 21... :P
And that was hilarious to read. Hehe, wow, well sounds like I'll be avoiding this one! I'd prefer a sweet orange scent too

I wouldn't buy it first because I wouldn't like the scent and second for the unreasonable price!

Mica said...

Oh I usually love orangey-citrusy scents! This sounds like it's not my kind of thing though, I love sweet scents too.

At least the product was good when you used it to make up for you not liking the scent, haha!

Hope you have a great weekend ahead Kim! :)

It sounded good until I read the part of the scent. I'm picky when it comes to smell. :X


Natalia | Look-A-Porter said...

Anything with an orange scent would easily become a favourite of mine, but now I am not so sure about this one. Need to give it a sniff some time. :)

Flora Fascinata said...

Kim, you are hilarious....I was reading and wondering what else you are going to say!!! Xxx

Mikka said...

Thanks for this honest review, your description is absolutely hilarious,it made me laugh haha. Intrigue about this product now, if I will see this in the shop I'll definiitely do a sniff test like you said :)

The Dainty Dolls House said...

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!! That was brilliant!! I've never seen this one before & to be honest, I wouldn't have bought it anyways as I'm not a big fan of orange like smells. But, since it had a funky smell anyways...I'm glad I missed out. Hahahaha. You are too funny, better to be completely honest than not. Some might like and others won't. I know I wont as those scents don't go well with me. I prefer the others as well, Sugar Crush is awesome, haha!! Loved this review :))) Happy Friday doll Xxx

The Adventures of a Shopaholic said...

Love it :)


Nats ~Coral Tinted Perceptions said...

Once again I love your honest reviews! Hate that it was a disappointment but citrus smell can go the wrong way lol x

Emmylou said...

LOLZ! Kim, I didn't even think that someone would actually think bitter orange would smell good, but what do I know?:P At least, it did work well...hehe....
Anyhoo, have a good Friday, my dear:)

Jackie Harrison said...

Another amazing product and impressive review. Have a great weekend doll.

SprinklesofStyle said...

Oh no!! Such a shame about the scent, I would have liked this to smell of sweet oranges too!! :(

TheTinyHeart said...

Haha Kim, you crack me up! I always have to smell a product in a store before purchasing. I am really picky about scents so if I don't like it, I won't buy it!

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

Boo to the orange sour smell! Nothing about that sounds appealing at all. Scent is such a big component of any body product that when it's off it can really ruin the whole experience. Thanks for sharing Kim!

Hey Kim, I well over 21 and I appreciate your humour!! LOL! I don't think I will ever have the guts to smell that because I only like sweet oranges. I wonder if they sell these in Canada. Have a great weekend!

OMG you are too much Kim! I would hate an orange that was not sweet. I do want to try some of their products though. I will take your recomendation on the sugar crush. Have a nice weekend.

Orangeasm!! What a name for a product. Lol! Kim I love your reviews. :-)

nycstylelittlecannoli said...

Not sure if I would try this as not a huge fan of orange scent My Mom would probably enjoy more than me
Lovely informative post as always


Heide Padilla said...

Great product review. I think the product name, Orangeasm is quite hillarious.


Cee said...

This definitely sounds like a love or hate kind of scent! It's a shame that you hated it but at least the products work really well so the purchases weren't a complete waste - it's always such a disappointment when that happens.

Aya said...

Lol at this post!!! It's sad because the product packaging looks amazing, and it looks like it would smell that way too. It sucks you didn't like it! Have a great weekend! xo

MITCH said...

orangeasm is definitely a catchy name :D


Diva In Me said...

Oh man!! I was excited when I saw your the first picture! I love anything with a citrus scent. Even by reading it makes me feel disappointed. You're such a sweet person and I don't like the idea that you smell bitter. LOL!

Sam said...

Lol, I can't imagine what a sour orange scent is like and I don't want to find out Kim, thanks for your honesty! I am entirely grateful for your visit....Have a splendid weekend!

ALLIE NYC said...

That is a shame it smells so unappealing. Yes it should have a hint of an orange scent but it should me made to smell like soap or something clean. I am doing a post this week an A-mazing avocado soap scented with avocado and grapefruit BUT it is aversion of that those scents not the actual scent of avocado.

Great blog and post. I follow you:)


Jo said...

Your R21 sentence got me laughing at my computer screen literally. I have an R21 reply to that but I think I won't stain your post with it. Urgh... I can imagine the bitter and sour smell. I think that scent is a very important factor in a product. If everything else is great but not the scent, the product is of no use purchasing at all. Glad you mentioned that it is either a love or hate scent.

I'm gonna catch up on your other posts which I've missed.

Jessica said...

Fun post, you were very sincere about this product! =)



Coco said...

When I read your reviews it's like I tried the product myself. When you expect a sweet orange essential oil fragrance and you find instead an orange juice scent it can be very disappointing! If I try sine products by Sosp and Glory, it will be from Sugar Crush line!

Lol you are so funny I love it, that's not exactly the scent I want to smell like. I'm pretty sure now I will not go add this to my collection. Haha. Great review!

ps - love your rating scale, cute and very helpful!!

Jenn said...

Your idea of rating this product is brilliant! I really want to try Soap&Glory but they aren't available where I live. So if I do end up in a country where it is available, I'll pass on this one. Thanks for the informative review! :)

Lol! What a cool review! I think a fresh sweet scent in the summer is important. But sour oranges?! Gosh, I don't want to smell hot for Mosquitos, lol.

What a pity that you don't like the scent :)
But I also don't like it when it's too fruity


Unknown said...

Ha ha quite funny and yes I'm with you with scent. Might not work. And the asm thing for me - perhaps not a brand name I'd pick :-) Happy day sweetest x

Unknown said...

I've been learning more and more such a new products from your blog. I don't like the bitter taste though!

Have a great weekend!


Tina Bradley said...

Sorry to hear this one was a bittersweet, Kim! My son and daughter-in-law bought me a basket of orange-scented bath products from The Body Shop and I am absolutely loving those. Hugs on your week! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

Chic Delights said...

Sorry to hear that the product didn't turn out as you expected. Looks very creamy though. Good try.

R.ChamberofBeauty said...

Oh I usually love orangey-citrusy scents! This sounds like it's not my kind of thing though, I love sweet scents too.

Your idea of rating this product is brilliant! I really want to try Soap&Glory but they aren't available in India...I'm not sure though.

Hope you had a great weekend Kim! Happy Monday, kisses <3

I love oranges and anything smelling like them :)Loved review with a twist honey :)

Sam said...

Thanks so much for stopping by, wishing you positivity in your week ahead!

LyddieGal said...

Normally I love anything citrus scented, and I am kind of curious to smell this strange sour orange... but I guess I will just have to wait until it's available in the states and I can try before I buy!

Chic on the Cheap


I typically love citrus scented things, but that's too bad about the smell of this. The sugar crush sounds like the best from your past review. I hope you have a wonderful new week Kim! x/Madison

Amber Lucas A Mused Blog said...

Ahahahahaha this made me laugh. But also, eeew! That sounds awful!! Did the product expire, or was someone's nose at the factory really not working??

It looks super moisturizing though!

Maddie said...

hahaha, omg, you totally cracked me up! :D
I have not heard of this produtc before, but my initiative reaction was- it must smell so good, but thank God to your review, now I know it wouldn't be my cup of tea! :)


Unknown said...

I love body butters but have never used an orange one sounds very nice.
I hope it's released in Canada soon.

Unknown said...

I'm not a big fan of citrus smells, so this would have been one that I would pass on anyways. It's too bad that it is moisturizing. It almost seems like a waste to have a great product and have it smell awful.

Lol omg, this post made me laugh out loud so much! At first I was like hmm... maybe I should try this product but after your description of the smell I'm definitely marking this one off my wish list. Great review, it was informative and wonderfully amusing. <3

fabulouspetite said...

Thanks for a great review. When I think of oranges, i think of fresh and citrus not sour smelling. It sounds like a great product until you mention the smell. Although the packaging is cute.


Darcy said...

The scent does not sound like it is up my ally! I have never tried their products though and really want too!

i'm a total sucker for anything orange, i have to check this out at my local kit soon.. hope they stock it!

Well Kim, no one can say that your reviews are not honest! They are certainly detailed too giving us helpful information before we decide whether or not to buy. It’s such a shame that this product was a disappointment especially when you had gone to the trouble of ordering it from England.
PS I tried to leave a comment here on Friday but for some reason it didn't publish so here I am again.

Sara said...

Kim! You crack me up!! LOL!! I wonder if you can get some orange essential oil to mix in with that product since it works so well but smells gross? What a bummer! You are correct though, they are aces with the packaging!

oomph. said...

in my mind, i was thinking of orange julius, but sour oranges doesn't sound nice!

Lorena said...

What a bummer - i love the packaging though… and i had to laugh at "and if you're 21 skip to the …."
too funny!

MaysaAndSunshine said...

Hmmm. I wonder whether I will like or hate the scent. I can't stand using something that works great but the scent bothers me. At least now you know right, Kim? You got to try it. Thank you for a great review as always.
