[REVIEW] The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

For most Indonesian, I’m pretty sure that The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter is one of their first first cleanser product. Why? Because it’s super easy to get this product in Indonesia, because there are literally at least one The Body Shop counter in every shopping malls here in Jakarta. Moreover, the price is pretty affordable, especially when we compare it to another easy-to-get Department Store Japanese first cleanser that usually come with a higher price tag, like, say Shu Uemura, Shiseido, or SK-II.

The use of camomile for therapeutic purposes is evidenced during the times of Ancient Egypt and has most likely been used for thousands of years prior to that. Camomile has been proven to be highly effective for soothing sensitive skin with its anti-irritant properties. It is 100% pro-skin. This wonder flower is suitable for all skin types.

At first, I was pretty surprised that this cleansing butter is cheaper than my favorite Banila Co. Clean It Zero. However, when I checked the size, ehh, no wonder, because this cleansing butter comes with 75ml in size whereas the Banila Co. one comes at 100ml. Therefore, maybe, the price is actually pretty similar if we count it by weight.

As for the cleansing balm itself, because there are literally a lot of people said that this is practically another dupe for Banila Co. Clean It Zero Purity, I have to say that this is true! Even though the texture is not downright the same, but for overall experience, I have to say that they are pretty much the similar. They are both unscented, colourless, and free of irritant properties.


The only thing that made me hesitant to like it more than I like my Banila Co. is the fact that it’s hard to picked up with spatula as its often dropped if I was trying to pick it up with spatula or cotton bud. I hate to make direct contact with the unused balm, to avoid unwanted germs and future pimples, of course I hate it when a product is not the right consistency to be picked up.

It’s not as sorbet-y as Banila Co. and Heimish, for the first few seconds, I really need to massage it into my skin to melt it off. But, other than that, I honestly have no complain with this cleansing balm. It removes my makeup as well as my Banila Co, don’t have any disturbing scent (I’m looking at you, Heimish), and most of all, didn’t make me break out.


So, overall, I really recommend you to try this The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter, because it’s easy to get, the pricing is pretty okay, and importantly, because this cleansing butter is sensitive skin friendly. Same with Banila Co., it is unscented, colourless, and free of irritant properties. If you want to try Banila Co. Clean It Zero Purity but cannot get your hands on it, I highly suggest you to try this one first.
