If you've been reading my blog or watching my You Tube video's for some time you will know that I'm a bit of a skin care junkie. I started to become interested in skin care a few years ago when my skin had become very badly dry and dehydrated, and after some help from the lovely Caroline I began a routine and my skin thank fully settled, but this sparked a real interest in skin care for me and since then I have become a bit of a skin care geek, I spend ages reading up on and ingredients and products and skin care has become a real passion of mine.
I came across the The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter whilst researching cleansing balms, I have never tried skin care from the body shop before, I love their shower gels and body butters and always take them on my holidays but I haven't ever looked at their skin care range, until now.
Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter
I love to use a balm cleanser, and have used a few different ones over the years, but I always go back to the Clinique Take The Day Off cleansing balm as my cleansing balm of choice, but after researching the camomile cleansing butter and then finding out The Body Shop had a 40% off discount code, I decided to give it a go.
I used the camomile cleansing butter in the same way as I use all my cleansers, I applied it all over my face, then removed using a flannel (face cloth) that I had run under hand hot water and wrung out. I first used the cleanser as a double cleanse, the first cleanse to take my make up off and the second as a general cleanse.
The cleanser looks very similar to the Clinique balm cleanser in the pot, a white 'set' consistency, it scoops out easily and rubbed into my skin effortlessly too, there is a scent to the cleanser which is a lovely scent but a subtle one so if scents aren't your thing then this shouldn't be too much of a problem at all, I really like the scent, it's a nice fresh scent that isn't overpowering and doesn't linger at all.

As I said the cleanser rubbed into my skin effortlessly and didn't sting or irritate my very sensitive skin at all, I rubbed the cleanser all over my face including over my eyes to remove my make up. Once I'd started to rub the cleanser into my skin it turned from a set like consistency into more of an oil based product, I don't mean my face was suddenly like an oil slick, not at all, but other cleansers I have used have just spread around my face and not changed consistency, whereas this one does change into an oil, but that wasn't a problem at all.
The cleansing butter removed all my make up with the first cleanse, I was wearing a full face of make up including waterproof mascara and it all came off with ease. I then did a second cleanse and my face was left feeling really soft and smooth. I would definitely recommend the cleansing butter, it removed my make up with ease and left my skin feeling really soft and smooth without any visible dry patches, which when your skin is as dry as mine is at the moment is brilliant, as I said my skin is very dry and it is also dehydrated but the cleansing butter is suitable for all skin types.
I bought my cleansing butter when the body shop had a 40% discount promotion and paid £7.20 but I would definitely buy it at it's full price of £12.00 it is a lovely product and one I will continue to repurchase, and I would go as far to say that this will be replacing my beloved Clinique take the day off balm which until now I had been using for a very long time.
It is an amazing product and if you haven't already tried it you certainly should, you won't be sorry.
