COMPARISON REVIEW: The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter Vs Cleansing Oil

The first time I saw the Camomile range at The Body Shop store, I was excited. Camomile is supposed to be calming but more importantly its great for the skin because it soothes skin irritation, is a natural skin bleach and is a natural cleanser. But when I saw that the good people at The Body Shop have not just a Camomile Cleansing Butter but also a Cleansing Oil, I was left confused...

I was confused because I didn't know which was better, the butter or the oil :) I mean how does one choose one over the other? Right? Right? Right!

So I decided to buy both and today I will be doing a comparison review of the two and hopefully by the end of this post, I would have helped you decide which one should you pick the next you are at The Body Shop :D

TBS Camomile Cleansing Butter - INR 1095/-
TBS Camomile Cleansing Oil - INR 1095/-

Packaging & Portability
The Cleansing oil comes in a plastic bottle with a pump nozzle that can be twisted to open and close. The butter on the other hand comes in an Aluminium tub with a screw-on lid. Packaging wise I find the butter better because it is easier to travel with.

Texture & Fragrance
This should be a no-brainer but I will still spell it out for you all :P
The cleansing oil is well an oil, though it doesn't feel too heavy or oily. The butter on the other hand is creamy and buttery and with a little contact with heat it melts into an oily consistency. Both products spread very easily over the skin and is certainly very gentle.
Fragrance wise the cleansing butter certainly smells better than the oil probably because the butter preserves the fragrance longer in the tub than the oil does in the bottle.

Usage & Performance
The cleansing oil as well as the butter are to be used on dry skin directly. You massage the product on your face and neck and it slowly melts away all makeup, dirt and impurities. Finally, you just wash your face with water and Voila!
Both products are equally effective and easy to use. I really couldn't find any difference where usage and performance is concerned to be honest :)

The Last Word
Ultimately it comes to what you actually prefer, oil or butter. But if you travel a lot or are planning a journey in the near future, the butter would be more convenient and travel friendly. Also, it smells better :)
However, the cleansing oil can be used to clean your beauty sponges.


  1. I always have this confusion, so I am also planning to try both

    1. ha ha I feel you sister... You'll like them both :)

  2. Will the cleansing butter suit oily skin which is usually prone to breakouts? It has always been on my list, but I am a bit skeptical.

  3. This floral fragrance is a welcome break from all the fruity offerings by The Body Shop. Am partial to body butters, so I prefer the body butter too.

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :) Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either. This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :) Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;) Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal
