Cleansing balms have quickly become a cult beauty must have. But with so many companies releasing one, how do you choose what’s right for you?
If you’re new to cleansing balms, they are solid cleansers that when warmed on the skin, turn into an oily consistency. Don’t be afraid, this is the 21st century, oil is good for all skin types! A balm cleanser will leave your skin feeling plump, clean and nourished. Trust me.
So you want to try a cleansing balm but you don’t want to spend a small fortune? Well I think I have the answer.
The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter is a really good alternative to other costly balms. It is gentle, yet effective at make up removal and leaves the skin feels ultra soft and smooth. The ingredients list isn’t its high point but that doesn’t stop it being a great product. It does contain a lot of synthetics and Shea Butter, which may not be suitable for oily, blemish prone skin. This being said, I am just that and I didn’t find that it broke me out or made me any more oily. As long as its washed off well, this product would work for anyone, especially if you’re a double cleanser like me or have dry skin! So if you’re new to the balm cleansing game, I would seriously recommend this.
