The Cleansing Balm On A Budget

[Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter from The Body Shop. £12]

It's no secret that cleansing balms are the new 'it' product amongst the beauty world at the moment - the Emma Harding one in particular but unfortunately spending upwards of £30 on a beauty product makes me quake in fear but I want it.

I have oily skin and anything with the label 'balm', 'butter', 'oil' or all of the above had me running in the opposite direction; convinced that if I so much as came into contact with it, my skin would hate me forever. But in the colder months, my skin craves moisture and takes a swift turn into dry skin alley. Hence the above product. 

It is phenomenal. The consistency is so rich and moisturising whilst also ridding your face of every single last scrap of makeup. This is honestly the first product I've found that completely takes off all that mascara and prevents a severe case of panda eyes the next morning. 

Sumptuous butter describes it completely and you don't need a lot for it to work - simply rub a bit between your fingers to make it melt a bit and massage it into your skin and then wipe it off with the damp washcloth. The best part is seeing your eye makeup dissolve around your eyes and turn them black and voila, they're clean and your skin is soft and free of product. Plus, it has a lovely subtle floral scent!

I would definitely recommend it as a cheaper alternative to the Emma Harding one as it does the exact same thing without the hefty price tag.
