The Body Shop Camomile cleansing butter

 Recently I have been feeling like my skincare needed a bit of a shake up and I fancied trying out some alternative cleansers to my normal choice. I happened to be in The Body Shop and picked up the sumptuous cleansing butter for £10.00. The fact that the Camomile extract is from here in god old Norfolk pulled me in (if indeed it actually is!).  It’s targeted for a sensitive skin and being a balmy butter means it would be suitable for both oily and dryer skins, so I gave it a shot.

It’s quite a slim line 90ml tin so my first thoughts would be that it wouldn’t last that long but I have been using it for a good month night and day and don’t have a visible hole in it yet.

It’s a nice soft balm, which transfers onto the fingertips easily without much pressure. The ingredients include Olive fruit oil, Shea butter, Sunflower oil and Chamomile. It has a slight fresh Lemon fragrance.

It feels a little greasy on initial application but as you massage it into the skin it lifts off all makeup, even mascara and stubborn lip products. The best thing about this cleanser is that it washes off really easily. I didn’t feel like I needed to use a second cleanser to remove it and I didn’t have to keep washing over again to remove the residue.

My skin feels so clean and smooth after use and over the last few weeks my skin has felt clearer and evened. It’s lost its slightly aggravated redness and feels balanced and even.

This cleanser is particularly lovely on a combination, irritated or oily skin because it doesn’t feel buttery or greasy but would be nice on a normal or dryer skin too. 

The only negative I have is that I don't particularly like the tin style packaging.  it's good fro travelling and storing biu when you have wet hands in the bathroom it's really annoying to undo and close up again. It's a minor problem though and I can deal with it!

This is definitely one I’ll be purchasing again. You can get hold of it here.



  1. This is my favorite makeup removing cleanser. My skin doesn't love shea butter (can cause breakouts for some of us with combo or oily skin), but it works great at removing makeup. I use something else afterwards to cleanse my skin. Lovely, affordable, smells nice, and kills mascara. I am in my 3rd tin.

  2. I love this butter! Normally lasts me around 3 months (one use every day), and I just love how gentle it is, while still destroying makeup! I use their Seaweed gel cleanser afterwards to cleanse my skin :). X

  3. I told you it's a little gem! Glad you loved it x

  4. Love this product, on my 4th tin. I tried the Clinique balm and I think it caused a bit of irritation so I went straight back to the body shop one and it's fab will keep buying it until it exists no more

  6. I sometimes use it remove my eye makeup and it works well.
    Overall it is a really nice cleansing butter.

  7. This is a such an awesome product especially during winters when my skin feels so dried out.

  8. i love this cleansing butter, one of my faves!

  9. There is also an oil - liquid version of this, which comes in a bottle with a pump. Needless to say, it is much easier to use :)

  10. This is my absolute favourite make up remover. I have combination oily/dry skin (what a pain!)and this stuff works wonders on me. I usually will do a second cleans once my make up is off as I'm not a fan of the slightly oily residue it leaves on my skin, but I do love how easily it melts my make up off.
