Just before I moved to Cyrpus I thought I best stock up on some Body Shop staples and whilst purchasing these essentials I came across this cleansing butter. I must admit I was suckered in pretty quickly, it looks pretty, smells luuush and the sales assistant was raving about it so I thought I'd give it a try for myself!
I've been using this on and off for the last few months and if I'm honest I've been umming and arring on whether I like it? As I've said it smells amazing, much more fragrant than the eye makeup removers but perhaps that's because they're aimed to be gentle? The texture is smooth and glides onto the skin well but on my skin it felt as though it left a greasy residue so maybe it's not so good on oily skin types... I also wouldn't recommend it for eye make-up removal, not with cotton will pass anyway. I tried using it with pads but it doesn't remove mascara all that well and left my eye lids greasy. For overall makeup removal however it worked well.
I'm still a firm supporter of cream liquid cleansers, being a real lover of the body shop seaweed range but this cleansing butter would great for on the go, as the consistency is great for travelling, could even be popped into your hangbag as well as overnight bag. I also think it's good for days when you haven't worn makeup but want to cleanse your face, but for everyday use of removing heavy duty makeup? Not so much.
Overall I'd say this product is good for a quick go-to make up removal if you have a light makeup on or to overall cleanse the face but not best for oily skin!
I hope this helps and everyone's enjoying their Friday. If any of you have tried it please let me know what you think :-).
