If you didn’t already realise, I no longer use cleansing oils to remove makeup and as my first step of cleansing so despite being a huge fan of them before, you won’t see anymore going forth. These days, I’m all about cleansing balms because cleansing oils are far too drying for my skin and I find that balms work better on my dry skin. I started out using the Antipodes Grapeseed Butter Cleanser which I loved, and have incidentally finished and scraped clean, so it was time I experimented with another.
It was at about this time that I discovered that The Body Shop had come up with the Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter, which had my senses pricked and my interest piqued.
This then, is a balm cleanser which comes in a large flat screw top tin and a consistency that reminds me a lot of shoe wax. I’m sorry, it does! I spent many weekends as a child helping to wax my parents’ leather shoes (child labour yo! LOL) and I know my shoe waxes.
I managed to get a sample of this for evaluation and I must say that it is interesting. It retails for just RM63 which isn’t very pricey, considering all the other cleansing balms I’m using or have stockpiled and will be using and a little does go a long way. But this is something that I think you have to work out for yourself if you’d like it.
