The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter
The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter*: £12
The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter is a makeup removing cleansing balm, think along the lines of the much hyped, Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm. It takes of makeup effortlessly, with a little ammont of product going a long way. It dissolves everything from waterproof mascara to heavy duty foundation with ease. I've been using a pea amount massaged into the face and eyes as a pre-cleanse before going in with another cleanser to make sure everything is off. It does come off very easily when used with a (clean!) hot flannel, but I usually find balmy cleansers can break me out if I don't use something more skin appropriate to make sure all the residue is removed. It doesn't sting or go too “milky” around the eye area either, and it emulsifies very easily with water. I don't really notice the chamomile smell either which is good as I'm not a huge fan of it personally.
The Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter retails for £12 which is a fraction of the price of the Emma Hardie equivalent. Also, it's worth pointing out The Body Shop regularly run promotions such as 3 for 2's and 30% off's. So if you get it at the right price it's excellent, more budget friendly alternative. Although I think for £12, it's a very fair price for the product. I have no faults with this cleansing balm and would wholeheartedly recommend it, especially if you have dry or sensitive skin going into the winter months. If you have oily/acne prone/combination skin, maybe stick to using this as a pre-cleanse and then using something more suitable to make sure it's all off and doesn't leave any residue behind which could trigger a breakout.
