The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter | Review

20th May 2016

Whilst I was in The Body Shop grabbing my new moisturisers I spotted the Camomile Cleansing Butter (I’d call it a balm but whatever). I’m not quite sure how new this is but I’ve only seen a handful of reviews and they’ve all been good, so I picked it up as there was a 3 for 2 offer on.

The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter

I was close to the end of my trusty Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish, so as the reviews I had seen had said it was a similar product, I thought it’d be just as easy to use. It is! All you have to do is put it on over the top of your makeup, rub it in a bit and then wash off. Now I say “wash off” lightly, apparently you are supposed to just wash it off with water. I grabbed for my good old muslin cloths, otherwise I feel like you’d just be putting anything from your hands etc back onto your face which is a bit gross. And plus, I like actually seeing that it’s coming off. Am I weird for finding this oddly satisfying?

The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter

I will say, the camomile cleansing butter gives me the blurry & stingy eyes that Cleanse & Polish does. I think this is different for everyone as I’ve not seen this mentioned anywhere else, but just a heads up. It did take all my eye makeup off, but I’ll just go back to my handy dandy makeup wipes for this, which doesn’t bother me.

It does leave a slightly oily feeling after it’s been washed off, which is fine for me being that I have dry skin, but I do know some people really hate that feeling! It’s so easy to use, just like the Cleanse & Polish. A little goes a very long way, it kind of reminds me of the texture and consistency of coconut oil so I used it the same way. I got a bit on my finger tips and warmed it up by rubbing them together and that worked well. I don’t know if that’s the right way to do it but it works for me!

Let’s be honest, The Body Shop very rarely does anything wrong, and this Camomile Cleansing Butter is no different! Have you tried it?
