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.
