Review: The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

I’ve been trying The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter for a while to see if, and how, it worked for me. I saw a lot of posts about this range when it was first released but not seen much since. It’s designed for sensitive skin and is a cleansing balm. I haven’t had the best luck with cleansing balms but I wanted to give this a go as it’s specifically for sensitive skin. As with all products from the Body Shop it’s cruelty free.

This is a fair sized tin, it contains 90ml, and is a lot flatter and wider than most of my skin care products. This costs £10 but the tin lasts ages, a little does go a long way and I can see this lasting beyond the twelve months it says it has for using it up, for me anyway. My skin is sensitive, acne prone and dry or combination and it isn’t normally a fan of cleansing balms but I was interested so thought I’d give it a go.

Blogmas Day 14!

Today’s advent calendar post is going to be a short one as it’s a duplicate from last year so I think I’ll be doing a second post later. Today’s a bit busy though as I’m going away for the weekend so I’m hoping to get all scheduled posts ready, it always feels a bit odd opening advent things early when I do this though!

The Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm is one that I got last year in the Marks and Spencer’s beauty advent calendar so I’m going to link to that post here so you can see my original first impressions. It’s a cleansing balm that you apply and then wipe off with a damp cloth. I’ve not tried many cleansing balms but they don’t really agree with my skin when I have so I’ll do a mini review if you want to read more on what I remember about this one. This is a 15ml jar but the standard 100ml jar costs £39 and comes with a cleansing cloth. It’s not exactly cheap but given how long this mini jar lasted last year I’d say it’s good value for money.

Advent 2016: Day 11!


Tonight’s is a bit later as we spent the weekend in Wales for a family meet up which was great so these posts have been scheduled and we got back this afternoon but I realised I forgot to schedule one for today! I love all these things in the lead up to Christmas and I’m definitely feeling Christmassy now but they are very draining. I’ll have to do a bit of an update post as I have had plans for Christmas posts but various family things have come up. I think my Christmas themed posts may end up going on after Christmas but I guess some are just winter themed so maybe they’ll work anyway.

I am definitely looking forward to trying these out today, though the Yankee Candle tea light is a duplicate it’s a refreshing scent and I do really like it. The Marks and Spencer advent calendar has an Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm which is something I haven’t really tried before so this will be interesting. The Ciate Mini Mani Month has La Dolce Vita which is a deep green nail varnish with shimmer in it and the Yankee Candle tea light is another Bundle Up tea light.
