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

  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.

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 ski…

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
