I think I may have become rather obsessed with two popular products from The Body Shop, the Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter and the Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil. The thing is, I’ve never really delved into the world of The Body Shop and I don’t know why. Granted, I received a coconut scented gift set for Christmas from my step-mum from them (which I loved!) and I’ve popped in there to get the odd thing for my mum who always had plenty of their products whilst I was growing up, but other than that I’ve barely even stepped foot in a store. It’s silly really, when you think about all of the highly raved about products they have such as these two beauties that I finally added to my online basket and have been trying out for the last couple of weeks…
The first product in question is the Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter, a mostly solid balm texture that once scooped onto your fingertips and rubbed into the palms of your hands melts into a oily liquid. It’s not the thickest balm cleanser I’ve used which might be a good thing, but it does a wonderful job removing even the most stubborn of makeup and doesn’t leave any kind of residue on your skin once removed with a warm damp flannel. I like to cleanse my skin twice with whatever cleanser I’m using, but with this I needn’t bother because it does a great job at cleaning my face and improving my skins texture in under a minute flat so there really is no need to repeat the process. An easy peasy facial cleanse.
Now this might be a rather bold statement so early in my testing game, but I think the Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil is possibly the best facial oil I’ve used in a while. It’s like a breath of fresh air for your skin. Oozing a subtle scent and luxurious oily texture, the Vitamin E Oil sorts your skin out in no time at all. I’m not naturally blessed with great skin unfortunately, in fact, my skin’s rather sensitive so I break out in spots and a red blotchy mess at even a whiff of something questionable. Thankfully when I’m in trouble The Body Shop has my back with this little lifesaver of an oil and regardless of the issue – from redness to dehydration, all issues seem to have disappeared come morning.
