The Body Shop - Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

Make up

I'm not someone who wears make up everyday but when I do I like to make sure I get it all off properly. The last thing I want to do after a night out is to go through a 20 minute cleansing routine when I'd much rather crawl into bed and so when I was given a quick demo of the camomile sumptuous cleansing butter from The Body Shop I pretty much fell in love. 

This cleansing butter is described:
  • gently melts away make up
  • leaves skin feeling clean and petal soft
  • removes all types of make up
  • suitable for sensitive skin and contact lens wearers

The butter itself comes in a slim screw lid tin which make me less cautious when packing it with my holiday essentials. At first glance the cleanser is solid and reminded me a bit of coconut oil however after taking a little bit out and rubbing it on my skin it melted into an oil. Trust me when I say a little bit of this stuff goes a long way. I used a scoop that's about the size of my thumb and it covered my entire face, so the fact it will last a while is a massive bonus.

Once the balm is on your face you can either wash it off or use a muslin cloth. Considering that I'm a fan of hot cloth cleansing I decided to use a cloth. The butter wipes off easily and didn't leave my skin feeling greasy or oily or cause any irritation to my skin or eyes. What I was pleasantly surprised by was just how soft it left my skin feeling.

I did a quick swipe of my face with some micellar water to check how well the cleanser worked and am very happy to say there was barely a trace of make up left on my face.

Overall, I think that the camomile sumptuous cleansing butter is a super quick and effective way of removing make up without causing any irritation and leaving you with extremely soft skin. This has certainly become one of my holy grail products and with The Body Shop dropping the price from £13 to £10 it makes it a cheaper by than Clinique's Take The Day Off balm or Liz Earle's hot cloth cleanser with results that are just as great.

Have you used The Body Shop's camomile range?
