Review | The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

What is it?
It’s a cleansing butter that claims to remove make-up effectively and gently by melting it away. It also claims to leave the skin feeling clean and soft, its said to remove all types of make-up and it’s even meant to be suitable for contact lens wearers and those with sensitive skin.
The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter retails at £12.00 for 90ml and is available to purchase on The Body Shop website and in stores.
The cleansing butter comes in a large metal tin with a screw off lid. I personally like the packaging as it houses the product well and keeps it safe and sound.

My thoughts
This stuff is A-mazing! I actually received this in my March You Beauty Discovery Box and in all honesty if it hadn’t have been an option in the box I would have probably never even had thought to try it. In the box it came with a Muslin cloth but I’m not entirely sure if it comes with one when you order direct from The Body Shop as I can’t find any mention of it on their website. Anyway, this cleanser is just, fabulous. I’ve used it ever since I got it for both my morning cleanse and my evening cleanse and I must say it’s really impressed me. What I like to do is apply a pea size amount to my face and simply wipe away with a warm, damp muslin cloth. For when I have a fair bit of makeup on, I simply apply a little more and it literally melts away the make up leaving me with a clean, super soft face. The cleanser even removes camouflage products which I often find I need to do a double, sometimes even triple cleanse to fully remove when I’m wearing that kind of make up. The only thing I will say is that although it’s super sensitive on the eye area and lovely to use, I sometimes find waterproof mascara a little harder to get off but it’s no big deal as I like to use a Micellar water for removing that but for things like regular mascara and eyeshadow, it removes them like a treat. When actually on the skin the cleanser is so soothing. I actually like to do a little facial massage when doing my cleanse as it just feels lovely and relaxing, especially with the subtle, yet lovely camomile scent.
  • Not too pricey
  • Effective packaging
  • Smells lovely yet still stubtle
  • Feels lovely and soothing on the skin
  • Effortlessly removes makeup
  • Leaves the skin feeling nice and soft, not dried out
  • Only a small amount of product is needed
  • Suitable for all skin types, even sensitive


  • Not so good when it comes to removing stubborn waterproof mascara (Having said that I prefer to use a trusty Micellar water anyway)
