Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

I love cleansing balms and butters and this particular offering from The Body Shop has been on my radar for a while now. During a recent 50% off offer, I made a pretty big order and finally decided to snap up the Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter (The Body Shop, 90ml, £12), which I've been using for the past two weeks. Butters and balms are some of my favourite products to reach for when cleansing, because I love how luxurious they feel and how easy they are to give your skin a lovely pamper with a gentle but firm massage. Removing my makeup at the end of a day is one of my favourite things to do, hell, even just doing my evening skincare routine regardless of whether I've worn makeup that day - it's just lovely to take off the day and pamper for a few minutes. Because my skincare routine is such a favourite thing for me, I like to include products which really fit the bill and which have really worked to impress me. For those new to my blog, I have predominately oily skin which has recently decided to officially become dehydrated, as well. 

The Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter comes in a very slim, yet very wide tin package, with a simple yet eye-catching label. Described as an indulgent makeup remover suitable for the whole face, the butter aims to gently and efficiently melt away makeup, dirt and impurities, leaving your skin clean, refreshed and pampered. As any The Body Shop fans will know, their products are all cruelty free so we know this falls into the 'animal and planet friendly' pile. But what's in the ingredients? Well, the first few ingredients on the list are pretty impressive, such as Ethylhexyl Palmitate, PEG-20 Glyceryl Triisosterate and Olea Europaea Fruit Oil and Olea Eurupaea Olive Fruit Oil. These are all skin conditioning and smoothing ingredients, which is great for those who lust after soft, supple skin. There's a few other softening ingredients in there too, such as shea butter; it's a pretty happy-skin inducing product. There's no nasty ingredients in this pure white butter, and it's easily suitable for even the most sensitive skin types. 

Cleansers are pretty easy to get to grips with and although I usually like to give it four to six weeks before reviewing a skincare product, cleansers I find I need less time with because I see any negative effects almost instantaneously with red, blotchy skin. A balm or butter cleanser in particular, I find personally with my skin, very quickly I can see whether it's going to make my skin happy or a bit grumpy. This particular butter cleanser has actually been really lovely to use. It's soft on the skin, easy to massage in and easier to rinse off with a warm muslin cloth or flannel. It also has a lovely soothing scent of camomile that isn't too overwhelming, and I actually really like the tin format it comes in. My skin is left clean, clear and brightened after use, which shows it's great at effectively dissolving makeup, dirt and impurities from the day. I don't use this to remove eye makeup, though - for that I always use a bi-phase eye makeup remover. My only gripe with this product is the price. This works out less purse friendly by price per ml, than a lot of the more high-end cleansing butters and balms out there. Would I repurchase though? I think so. I really like it! Definitely worth checking out, especially if The Body Shop have one of their fab offers on!

  7. I really really REALLY wanted to love this cleansing balm but unfortunately it did not suit my skin at all. I had crazy amounts of breakouts (and I assure you I made sure I got it off my skin properly with a flannel). I was so disappointed :( but glad that it does suit a lot of other people! I think my experience was not a common occurrence which is comforting. I gave this to my sister who has a different skin type and she loves it. *curses own skin*.

    1. Awh no! That's such a shame, although good for your sister! I really love the Antipodes and Bobbi Brown balm cleansers, if you're looking for an alternative :) xo

  8. I've got a tin of this and I'm on the fence about whether or not I like it - it's rich, thick and creamy, granted, removes makeup well, but I find that I have to use another cleanser immediately after or else my skin breaks out. Hmm x
