The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter

camomille cleanser
I bought this cleansing butter after seeing someone in a youtube video rave about it. I can't remember who that youtuber was but they really peaked my interest in this product.  I'd never seen a cleanser in a butter form before. Usually just liquid or cream. I had a look at it in The Body Shop a few weeks ago and the smell hooked me. I was a little weary about paying nearly 15€ for a simple face wash but I'm really glad I did. Especially because I think I'm going to get a lot of value for my € with this as you only use a tiny amount each time you use it. This product has been knocking around for a while now and there's also a cleansing oil and an eye make up remover in the camomile range.

The cleansing butter comes in this 90ml tin. It's a solid butter which reminds me of vaseline a bit. I had no clue how to use this so I referred to The Body Shop website where there's a little blurb telling you how to use it. They recommend applying to a dry face, massaging it into your skin and wiping away with warm water or a muslin cloth. I followed this technique and I was pleasantly surprised. I used the tiniest amount of product, rubbed it into my skin and it effortlessly melted away all my make up. Even my eye make up dissolved without any problems or eye irritation. I found it to be very gentle on my skin with no need to rub vigorously.
My initial thoughts when I first touched the butter were 'its kind of oily, will this break my skin out?' but thankfully it hasn't caused any breakouts. I do find it leaves a little residue on your face if you don't use a cloth to wash it off so I would recommend doing it that way and maybe going in with a micellar water after, if you suffer with problamatic skin like I do.
When it's washed off, your face is left feeling really soft and refreshed. There's no lingering camomile scent and you barely notice the smell when you're applying this to your face. It's just slightly noticeable and really nice before bed because it's so calming.
Overall I really, really like this product and pathetically enough, I find it fun to use because it's not like your typical cleanser. I'm thinking of buying the muslin cloth from this range so if any of you have used that or any of the other products, please let me know in the comments below.

This sounds lovely I'm quite lazy with using a lot of products and tend to stick with the Garnier Micellar Water but I'd like to give this a go!
