The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

I'm definitely an all about the skin-care girl! Great skin and you have a great base for your makeup, which in turn will look better and be easier to apply. Key for me, to looking after your skin, is removing all that pesky makeup and dirt at the end of the day, and using some great products (whether they be cheap or high-end), as long as they get the job done.

Now I love cleansing balms, butters and oils to remove my makeup, I had heard so much about The Body Shop's Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter, so thought I would give it a try, after my beloved Liz Earle ran out.

I was surprised at how much of this stuff you need. I was going to take a picture of the contents inside the container, however as the balm is white and the tub silver, it just wasn't coming out well enough to publish (even in great light).  Think solid coconut oil, it looks (and the texture feels) exactly the same.  It smells very fresh and clean with a hint of floral (obviously from the camomile).  The more you rub into your skin, the better it works. As with all cleansing balms, I apply to dry skin and massage in circular motions and then remove with a hot flannel or muslin cloth. I love The Body Shop's offering, it is so gentle, removes all make up, it feels soothing on the skin and eye area and the more you massage the oily it becomes.

It gets rid of everything on your face, and leaves skin feeling extremely soft. Once I had dried my face, it appeared like there was a slight residue/film left, however one swipe with some makeup remover and this was gone.

It certainly wont be replacing my Liz Earle, however I do really rate it. Not the most sanitary having to scrap it out of the tin and it hasn't lasted long at all. I may re-purchase in the future though. I am quite excited though, as I placed an order to Feel Unique yesterday and I have a free sample of Emma Hardie's Moringa Cleansing Balm on its way, so cannot wait to see how they compare, if at all.

Has anyone tried this, what do you think?
