Let me tell you, ever since I've been cleansing my skin with oils or butters, my skin has been less oily. I'd say my skin has shifted from oily-combo to combo-normal! This cleansing butter from The Body Shop has been a great find for me.
Camomile Sumputous Cleansing Butter
- Gently melts away make-up
- Leaves skin feeling clean and petal-soft
This is what the product looks like inside the tin. I've had this for around two and half months. It's clear from this image this will last me a few more months!
Scent: This a very faint and pleasant camomile floral scent. The scent is not overpowering, strong, or perfumey at all.
Application: You absolutely have to apply this to your skin with clean and DRY hands. I always clean and dry my hands first before using this. Your face must be absolutely dry too! The amount you use I think is dependent on how much makeup you have on your face. I think it's always better to overestimate than under. If you do not use enough product it will not remove all of your make up properly. I use about a quarter size maybe teensy bit over a quarter size amount.
I then rub this between my hands, and it instantly melts into an oil. I rub this onto my entire face, while paying extra attention to my eye area for a good minute. This melts your makeup away and it's a process you can watch. This does not sting or burn your eyes at all. I love that about this because I can really see it removing my eye makeup. I don't have to guess. I know when it's gone!
Removal: I personally remove this just with water. I get my hands wet and start working the water into my face. This causes the product to turn into a slight frothy and milky consistency on the skin. Once you reach that consistency I put my face over the sink and wash the rest off using more water from the faucet. Viola! You could also remove this with a washcloth if you wish.
Skin Feel: This leaves me skin feeling very soft and hydrated. I do not detect any greasy or oiliness after using this cleansing butter.
Results: This removes all of my makeup very well. It's gentle and easy to use. I will say that in the beginning I did not use enough product, and I was left with some mascara residue. As I mentioned before it's best to overestimate how much you need than underestimate. That being said, you can see from my tin now, I still have months of product left, so I don't feel I'm using up the product quickly.
Price: This is $16 at The Body Shop, however, The Body Shop is always running some sort of B3G3, B2G1, X% off sale, so you really don't have to pay full price!
Overall: I really like this cleansing butter. I think it does its job. It's gentle, removes all of my makeup, and I like how my skin feels afterwards.
