Hi everybody, how are you all doing today? ☺
I hope the snow has cleared up in your area. Lately, I’ve been juggling a few different projects (I feel like I say this a lot) and I am working on bringing you guys more reviews, guides and offers. For now, I’m coming towards the end of the Plum Goodness series; there’s only one more review left to do, at this point it’s needless to say that I am kind of in love with this brand, so perhaps I may do some more reviews on their products later on this year. Last month, I did a quick poll on whether you guys wanted to see more reviews from this brand or not. Thankfully, you all weren’t fed up of seeing me talk about this brand.
I’ve still got a few products from @plumspeak left to review – have you guys had enough or do you still want me to review them? 😆#plumgoodness #crueltyfree #vegan #bbloggers#indianbeauty #reviews #kindcultureuk #veganblogger #naturalbeauty #skincare #veganbrands

Today’s review is on the Vanilla & Fig Feel The Fudge Body Butter from the Vanilla & Fig range.
A little about Plum Goodness…
Plum Goodness is an online-cosmetic brand, based in India, that was founded by Shankar Prasad in July 2014. The brand is one of the first 100% vegan brands in India that are completely committed to ensuring that their products are ‘safe and good’ – not only are the products cruelty-free but they are also free of parabens, phthalates and SLS – and are renowned for being both high-quality and affordable.
The products all feature the ‘1% For The Planet’ logo, meaning that Plum Goodness give 1% of their sales to non-profit organizations that are dedicated to protecting the environment.
“Any ingredient that’s even a little bit questionable on a scientific basis – not on the basis of just Googling – we leave out completely,” – Prasad speaking to the Economic Times.
Plum Goodness Vanilla & Fig Body Butter
The Plum Goodness Vanilla & Fig Body Butter is a deep hydrating, emollient body butter with nourishing shea butter, soothing vanilla and antioxidant fig extracts for all-round care. The body butter contains added vitamin B3, vitamin C and fig fruit extract for its anti-ageing and skin conditioning properties which works well for all skin types, including those with dry skin. And as always, the body butter is paraben-free, phthalate-free, cruelty-free and vegan!
The body butter is priced at Rs. 450.00 (Indian rupees) for 200ml, which is approximately £5.00 – please do bear in mind that the exchange rate can fluctuate, and the price could be a little higher for someone purchasing from outside of India. I bought the body butter as part of the Vanilla & Fig Irresistible Bundle, at the time it was worth Rs. 1440 and I was charged £16.35 for it but it’s currently on sale for Rs. 1,050.
One of the main reasons that I bought this body butter, was because of the quality of the brand and the great reviews on it. Naturally, I had to try it out and share it with you all! ☺
When I first opened the Plum Goodness Vanilla & Fig Body Butter, I could immediately smell the soothing vanilla scent, I couldn’t really smell the fig as much. On its first use, I found the body butter to be quite rich and smooth, as well as good value for money as I didn’t have to use a lot of product on my body for it to be completely moisterised.
Generally, I’ve been using this body butter since I received it a couple of months ago and I’m pretty impressed with the way that it manages to keep my body nourished throughout the day, especially when it’s freezing outside. I haven’t needed to re-apply the body butter, and when I shower after using the body butter, my skin is still soft. During the snowy weather, this body butter doubled as a hand cream and it did not dry up at all, my hands did freeze but they weren’t dry if that makes sense. So far this body butter (and brand) has continued to amaze me with it’s high quality. 👌🏽💆🏽✨
