The body shops camomile sumptuous cleansing butter £10.00 has been out a while, they brought out a range of cleansing products under the camomile range. The butter was the first balm on the market that wasnt super high up there in price that i knew of, and ever since i first tried it ive been pretty hooked.
I reviews the no7 nourishing cleansing balm here back in september, explaining how much i loved it as a basic staple balm and thats basically where i stand with this one too. this one is a little bit lighter in texture but thats it honestly!
They call it a butter and honestly thats a great way of describing the texture of this, its like a butter the minute it touches your skin it begins to melt down into an oil. It removes makeup without any issue, the toughest of makeup the most layered on will melt away without much problem.
Its very gentle too, even if it gets in your eyes it doesn’t sting or hurt in any way. It doesnt dry out your skin at all but its easy to remove, ive tried some balms that leave a oily or even slightly sticky film on the skin but this one comes off completely clean.
Honestly i wish i had more to say about this but it really is just a really good easy to use balm cleanser! you also dont need very much so it lasts quite a while too, and of course its from the body shop so its cruelty free, and this product is also vegan so it ticks all the boxes too!
I would highly suggest to anyone that they give this a go, its a great cleanser and not one i want to be without.
Hey! so in my superdrug haul the other week i picked up the B. Hydrated Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz £7.99, i have wanted a hydrating facial spritz for a while now and i seemed to pick the right moment because with our current heatwave they are amazing!
So, if you dont know what hyaluronic acid is in simple terms it can hold up to a thousand times its weight in water. It is something we have naturally in our skin, however of course its production does slow down and its always good to top up what we naturally make!
So first off, personally for me if you want a spritz to use throughout the day this isnt for you, but as someone who is oily /combo skinned i dont tend to need hydration during the day. However i have fallen completely in love with using this morning and night! in the “morning” (because lets face it, its rare i shower before 12) i use it on clean skin and then i put my serum on top straight away, and it really adds an extra layer of hydration. At night i use it after my acid toner of choice and then i again put my serum on top straight away and it just feels so nice to lock that in.
With the weather being like it has been, i really havent wanted much on my skin some days or nights! on the really horribly hot days (32c+) i havent been doing much at all, sticking to just spraying this and then putting on a gel based moisturiser and its really worked!
the only downside honestly is the size, ive gone through this pretty fast (ive got like a quarter left) and ive only had it for a few weeks, but its pretty cheap and superdrug always has sales so its not too bad to replace!
all in all ive really liked my first go at true hydrating facial spritzs and im looking forward to trying more!
