I have been meaning to review the Body Shop’s Camomile Cleansing Butter for ages because it is an absolute delight to use, super effective and an all-round good guy. I love it!! Ingredients list at the bottom for you.

In the pot, the Cleansing Butter, part of the Body Shop’s Camomile range, looks like a soft, white butter cream, actually it looks rather a lot like lard! Have a look:

But that is where the comparison to lard ends because this is absolutely beautiful. It smells amazingly calming, but it’s only a light fragrance, so no need to panic if you’re averse to strong scents.

I just scoop up a bit of the butter, melt it between my palms (which happens as soon as the warmth of my hands touches it), then massage what has become a clear oil over my face and eyes to lift off the makeup.

It is so gentle and soft that even if it goes into my eyes it doesn’t sting yet it literally melts the makeup away. I then add a little water to emulsify and then remove it with a warm flannel.

If I have been wearing a lot of makeup, or SPF, I tend to repeat the process, and to be fair, I always tend to go for a double cleanse, just in case. On the second cleanse, however, there is no trace of makeup to report, so for fans of one step cleansing, this will certainly do the trick.

INGREDIENTS: Parkii (Shea) Butter, Caprylyl Glycol, Tocopherol, Parfum/Fragrance, Aqua/Water/Eau, Linalool, Limonene, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract, Citric Acid.

The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter (and ‘sumptuous’ is an apt choice of word) costs £12 and I think it performs extremely well, if not even better, compared with more expensive cleansing balm options. I thoroughly recommend this!  It is suitable for sensitive skin and contact lens wearers. Find it HERE
