Before picking up these items I hadn’t used anything from the Body Shop in several years, but after reading multiple positive reviews for the Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter I decided to go in and pick it up and due to a special offer in store I also picked up the Camomile Gentle Eye Make-up Remover. I have been using these two products for a couple of months now.
The camomile cleansing butter is a very effective make-up remover, and doesn’t require great effort to remove your make-up. With other products I have found myself having to scrub my skin to remove all remnants of make-up but with this cleansing butter it is removed easily.
To use this product you simply scoop up a little of the butter from the tin (and a small amount is all that is required for your whole face). Then apply to a dry face and massage into your skin. You can either rinse off with warm water, or remove with a warm wet cloth (I often use a gentle flannel).
What I like about this product is that it works! It is packaged nicely in a tin and based on how much I have used up currently it should last me a good amount of time. My skin is left feeling clean and soft and it works well with my sensitive skin, not causing any redness or irritation. It also smells lovely!
It is not the cheapest cleanser for £13 per 90ml but it works well and should last for a decent amount of time.
I don’t use this product to remove my eye make-up however, so am unsure how well it works for this.
For removing my eye make-up I use the camomile gentle eye make-up remover which I really like.
I have sensitive eyes that often experience a stinging or burning effect when I use make-up removers around them but this doesn’t irritate them! I am also not left with red eyes after removing my eye make-up.
It is gentle but effective, and I find that gently swiping across my closed eye with a cotton pad is effective at removing most of my eye make-up, and then I just spot wipe wherever remnants may be left (usually mascara left on my lashes or eye liner) until all my eye make-up is gone.
I would not use too much of the remover on the cotton pad as if too much is used it can leak into your eye which isn’t the most pleasant experience and can sting a little.
It leaves my lids feeling clean and soft and is good at shifting stubborn make-up.
It costs £9 for 250ml
I would definitely buy both of these products again once I use them up, although I would probably wait and buy them when the Body Shop has an offer on. These two products have also convinced me to go in and try more products from the Body Shop range.
