Hello! I’m in the mood for blogging – yay! I have a mountain of things that I need to share with you so pop t’kettle on and get comfortable. The first item I need to share with you is The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter. This is a product I have raved about for so long, it would be a crime if I didn’t speak about it any sooner.

I originally won the entire Camomile range from The Body Shop last year. After trying, and loving, The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Oil, I had to take the plunge and unscrew that lid.
When you unscrew the lid, this is what you see. It’s almosts like lard, in both texture and appearance. Look at it! However, appearances are deceptive. Stick your mitts in there and grab a chunk of it. Yep, it’s a strange sensation alright! Go on, scoop it out and then spread that chunk all over your dry face and massage. Upon contact with skin, the product melts… just like butter! It transforms into a light oil; thinner than the Cleansing Oil but still substantial enough to help you massage your face with ease; dissolving the day’s make up and grime. You can then rinse away with warm water or use a damp muslin cloth to scrape it off for a more thorough cleanse and light exfoliation.
The results? You will be left with the most unbelievably soft skin; you won’t be able to stop yourself stroking it and you’ll probably ask others to stroke it too (oo-er!). Most importantly, it feels clean; like every single scrap of make up and grime has gone. It also does not dry my skin out or make it feel stripped at all, no matter how many times I use it. I like to bring this into my routine when the months turn cold and my skin needs a treat at cleansing time.
Alas, this product cannot be 100% perfect. I am not sure this particular product holds any long term skincare benefit; it doesn’t seem to have any beneficial ingredients that will help the skin and continue to care for it. However, this is a high street item and in all fairness it does encourage the removal of make up and facial massage; two things people often neglect in their routine.
For £12, this can be just over budget for some but there will always be some sort of offer or voucher code for The Body Shop flying about to sweeten a naughty purchase. This is a product that I have repurchased, and will continue to do so. If you are battling dry skin this season, you need to give this a go.
