REVIEW THE BODY SHOP Camomile Cleansing Butter

THE BODY SHOP Sumptuous Makeup Cleansing Butter

The Body Shop’s Camomile Sumptuous Makeup Cleansing Butter can help dissolve makeup in under 30 seconds.

This buttery pot of goodness is crafted with camomile oil from Norfolk, England, which is known for its calming properties.

Massage our Camomile Makeup Cleansing Butter into your skin to melt the day away.

Not only will this cleanser help to remove your makeup, but it helps to cleanse your skin of SPF and, it’s clinically proven to clear pollution. Plus, it helps keep your skin feeling supple and nourished with moisture from the first use.

HOW TO USE (my preferred method)

Take a tiny scoop and massage it onto a dry face, neck and eyes. It melts immediately upon contact.

Use warm water to emulsify then dissolve the makeup and rinse off – I use a muslin cloth.

I then rinse again with clean warm water and pat my face dry.

Skin feels clean and soft afterward with no irritation around the eyes.


Finally, another makeup remover I can work right into my eyelashes to remove all traces of waterproof mascara without any stinging or oily residue.

The only other one I rely on is Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser but the price has been sneaking up lately, £32.50 for 200ml.

This makeup remover looks and feels like a soft hair wax with a barely noticeable scent. It is cased in a lightweight, recyclable aluminium tin with a screw-on lid.

As far as I can tell, the difference between a balm and a butter is that butter is less oily. In fact, there was no greasy residue even around my eyes.

I took a huge risk and used this instead of Cleanse & Polish on my recent holiday. Just as effective, but it takes up a lot less room in my beauty bag and – is considerably cheaper.

There will always be a place in my heart for good old Liz Earle, but this best-seller from The Body Shop is just as effective at a great price.

The world’s shortest review because this has been a lifelong staple of mine.

The Body Shop has always been the leader in ethically sourced beauty products and their organic coconut oil is no exception.

Coconut oil has always been a bit of a wonder oil, and has been moisturising skin, hair and bodies forever.

  1. Towel dry after exfoliating and cleansing.
  2. Scoop out a dollop of Body Butter.
  3. Slather over very dry skin sparingly or generously.
  4. Give dry-prone nooks and crannies like knees, elbows and feet some extra TLC.
  5. Give it a few minutes to sink into skin before getting dressed.
  6. Feel nourished, smoothed and softened.
  7. Love and nourish your skin once a day.

Coconut has been the scent of summer and holidays in my house forever. Mainly I think, because Hawaiian Tropic seemed to be the only sun tan oil on sale in the 70s 80s.


The scent is the real deal, it melts into skin which is left soft and hydrated – THE END!
