A few months ago I was absolutely raving about the Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Balm on my Instagram stories. I even got a few of my friends to order one! I then realised I had received a couple of other cleansing balms in subscription boxes recently, so I thought it was time to put them to the test!
The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Butter
I fell in love with this product as soon as I tried it for the first time! simply apply the butter to dry skin and watch your makeup melt away! Even my mascara and eyeliner vanished! I then rinsed it off with warm water and my muslin cloth! Because it contains camomile it is super calming and really helped me sleep! The butter is also super moisturising. Just to test out how moisturising I didn’t use any moisturiser. My skin was just as soft in the morning as it was when I went to sleep. This butter is also pretty affordable at just £10 for a 90ml tin!
Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm
I received this cleansing balm in one of my BirchBox’s before they truly disappointed me! There is also a hell of a lot of hype behind this product so I thought it was bound to be amazing. Comparing it to the Body Shop butter I was really glad to see it was also a solid balm meaning only small amount goes a long way. Unfortunately, It just didn’t work as well as the Body Shop counterpart. I found I had to use a face wash afterwards and I was still left with all of my mascara. This product is also rather expensive (in my opinion) at £23 for 125ml.
Lucky Cloud Nourishing Cleansing Balm
Unlike the other two balms, this one had to be applied to a damp face. To wet your face you are told to soak a cloth in warm water and then squeeze out the excess water. You then need to hold the cloth against your face for a few seconds. This caused me to get some of my makeup on the cloth making it dirty which was a slight inconvenience. This balm was also more of a liquid than a solid so I found I had to use quite a lot. It also didn’t do a very good job. In fact, I would say it didn’t do anything and I had to again use a face wash to remove my makeup. This one is also rather expensive at £20 for just 60ml.
I think you can guess which one was my winner! Have you tried any of these cleansing balms? What were your opinions?
