The Body Shop - Camomile sumptuous cleansing butter

I love a cleansing balm. Without fail, this is the first step of my night time routine. A good splodge of a balm all over my face makes my face happy. 

Of course I'd have to give The Body Shop butter a try. At £12 it is the cheapest one I own. In the long run this could save me a lot of money....if I loved it.

The tin is a screw lid. Please don't make my mistake and try and pull the lid off.
You will break your nails.
You will feel like an idiot when someone points this fact out to you.

There were only 2 left in the shop when I purchased it. The assistant said that as soon as they get any in they pretty much fly out. So I was keen to get home and give it a try.


The continence (once you get the lid off) looks very similar to Clinique take the day off balm. Like lard. Also doesn't come in any other packaging. So double check that there are not finger prints before you go to the till. But it does have a scent unlike Clinique. Of Camomile, or so I'm lead to believe.  


You only need a pea size amount. I rub the hard textured splodge between my fingers and it softens straight away. Then rub it all over my face over eye make up and it turns to oil. I massage it into my skin for around a minute or so and then use a clean flannel to remove the product.


It doesn't leave the skin feeling dry. Which is my pet hate.

It removes make up effortlessly however I wouldn't just use this on it's own. As I find there can be a trace of make up left behind.

With the screw lid it does remind me of shoe polish. As I had the same difficulty getting into that as I did this cleansing butter. Also the waxy product does look a little bit like white polish. I assure you it's not.

Overall it's a winner from me. However I do prefer the Clinique balm. But I will carry on using this happily.

Do you have a favourite cleansing balm?
