Beauty Review | The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Range

Back in March I put up a YouTube video about what I had received for that month in my You Beauty Discovery Box. I had selected a cleanser from The Body Shop that month and absolutely loved it! So, when I saw that The Body Shop had one of their amazing offers on I had to stock up and try something else from the range too (slightly enabled by Kate from Gh0stparties review... it is easier to blame someone else!) 

Let's talk about the product I repurchased first, the Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter. Retailing at £12.00 the jury was a little out for me at first, what with all of the blogging hype over the high end Emma Hardie balm (£36.00) - plus I had tried (and unfortunately adored) the previously mentioned cult product so thought nothing could come close. Hands up, I was wrong.

The texture of this balm is hard to start with, but when you scoop out a small amount on your fingers it instantly softens with the heat of your body. I rub it between my fingers first before taking a couple of minutes to massage it all over my face and neck, where it transforms into a beautiful, silky oil (which smells absolutely amazing!). It is pretty darn great at removing every last bit of make up too. I usually use a micellar water initially, just to remove my ever-so-long lasting L'Oreal Superliner, then apply this cleanser. It is easily removed with a warm face cloth or muslin cloth too. The best part is it leaves my skin feeling nourished and soft, not at all tight and irritated so, all round, this little guys a winner! 

On to the oil version of the range. The Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil retails at £10.00 for 200ml. I guess I can 'ditto' all of the above with this product. It really is lovely. I really like the way this feels on my skin. It is a little lighter, in my opinion, to the texture of the oil in the balm, and would be suitable for any skin type. I would also say that this product is a bit more able to remove waterproof eye make up than the balm, but the overall result is pretty similar...glowing, soft and radiant (let's not forget clean!) skin.

I highly recommend this dynamic duo...if you try them let me know your thoughts (go on, add them to your wish-list!).
