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.

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

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30 #Adulting One early morning while I was sipping an exceptionally strong cup of coffee and introspecting I identified a few lifestyle changes that I had incorporated in the past year or so. On further retrospection I realised that these changes were a part of what I perceived would be good for me in the long run... When did I start thinking about my health in the future? When did I start worrying about how my skin would be 10 years down the line? OMG was I #Adulting? Is this even the correct usage of the latest hashtag?

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

  Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener  Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work... Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!
