What I've Been Loving #23Sunday, May 25, 2014
The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter (£12):
I bought this a while back - and although I was really excited about it - I never got around to giving it a proper test due to the million other cleansers I have in my possession (hello spending ban!) I love this - there isn't really much else to say. It's the silkiest, most luxurious cleanser I've ever used and it will be going on my repurchase list as soon as it's finished up. It's a lazy girls' dream - just grab a bit, rub it all over your face, rinse - et voila, you're good to go. I don't even feel like I need to double cleanse with this, it's just that good. All I do is get a cotton pad of Bioderma and quickly swipe it over my face to make sure nothing is left, and there usually isn't, apart from the odd pesky bit of mascara. One would think that with this being so effective, it might be drying, but no! It's really moisturising, insanely so. Can you tell that I like this...?
I've had this for a while and have always loved it, but with my short attention span, it began to gather dust at the back of my draw. My skin has been looking a bit lacklustre lately, so I've been turning to this once a week to help brighten things up a bit. It also works well with my dry skin as it's a chemical exfoliator - although I have to apply a good moisturiser afterwards as it can dry things out a touch. A bit pricey - but there doesn't seem to be a worthy drugstore rival out there yet, so I'll be sticking to this for the mean time. To be fair, you don't go through it very quickly, so the £30 price tag isn't too painful.
Don't worry, my beloved Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder and I haven't fallen out, but sometimes my face fancies a bit of a shakeup, and that's where this powder comes in. I wrote a post up on this a few months back, saying that it's my preferred powder for when I want a bit of extra coverage and a more velvety finish. Don't get me wrong - I love a bit of a glow - but my skin is being a right pain at the moment so this has become part of my everyday routine.
