Truly Scrumptious Cleanser!


Ok so it’s confession time…I don’t have a cleansing routine. I did dabble when I was younger and tried to get on the band wagon but I’ll be honest I just couldn’t be bothered. I can hear the Millennials’ gasp almost as loudly as I do when I’m asked what a record or cassette is, when describing my childhood music selection. I guess a lot of it is down to what I was taught; that you only needed to moisturize and that’s what I’ve followed. It could be largely down to genetics (I’m not blowing my own open/closed pores here) but I have been told that I do look younger than my age. *Disclaimer: I am self-aware enough to recognize that my faloofahs have dropped and my waist size has expanded but least my skin is not letting me down…for now.

So what leads a humble curl to write about a cleansing product? I’ll tell you what…Mascara and the not wanting to look like Alice Cooper in the morning, that’s what. From time to time, I’m prone to a Body Shop urge; sometimes it develops into an obsession and I’m in there most weekends trying out this and that. But most of the time it’s a short lived affair only rekindled when I see that gorgeous red and white ‘SALE’ sign. So just over a year ago I set about having a mooch and picked up their Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing butter. I had no expectations mainly because I’d heard Youtubers rave about Clinique’s, Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm but I’d never heard anyone mention this as a cheaper alternative.


I think I’ve mentioned before that I don’t always wear makeup as I’ve always been a five more minutes in bed type of humble curl but I did test it out after I’d applied a full face of makeup. I was beyond impressed! As the name would suggest, it’s a butter formula, so I took a tiny bit on my finger and put it in the palm of my hand and then rubbed it between my palms and massaged it into my face in the same way that I apply my moisturizer but paying particular attention to  around my eye lashes.  I then let it settle for a minute and then used cotton pads to gently wipe off my mascara and rinse the rest of my face with water. This literally feels like it melts away your makeup but doesn’t sting, make your skin feel tight or feel like it’s taken a layer of your skin off! In my humble opinion, this is gentle on your skin and has a really subtle fragrance which gives it a luxurious feel. It’s definitely one worth opening the purse strings for.

Much Luv,
