The Body Shop Chamomile Cleansing Butter Review


After using coconut oil as a cleansing balm to remove my makeup, I decided to try something new and picked up the The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Balm. I paid 14 Euros for 90 ml. The cleansing butter smells a bit herbal and sweet, but the scent is not very strong and does not irritate my skin. It starts out solid and when I rub it into my skin, it turns into an oil texture. I personally use cleansing butters to loosen up my makeup and then remove the residue with a cotton pad soaked with micellar water. I always follow up with a facial cleanser, so I cannot attest to any residue left on the skin.

Left to Right-The Body Shop Balm and the Clinique Balm

The cleansing butter is very similar to the Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm (125 ml for approx. 33 Euro), but this one is cheaper, scented, and I personally find that it burns a little bit if I use it on my eyes. It is not extremely painful, but a bit uncomfortable.

The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Balm is vegan and not tested on animals. Overall, if you are on a budget, I would recommend the Body Shop’s Cleansing Balm, but if you would like something that is completely irritation free, grab the Clinique Take the Day Off Balm. Both are great options though for someone with sensitive skin and it will take off all your makeup from the day!
