Cleansing Balm (Product Review)

Hi guys

I am big fan of The Body Shop and their skin care products. The last time I visited the local store one of the lovely ladies who works there suggested a new product; Camomile Cleansing Butter. She claimed that it’s the same as the Camomile cleansing oil which is one of my favorite products. So I decided to try it out.

The packaging is nice. It reminds me of the hand cream my grand mother used to have. The actual product looks like a conventional vaseline with a hint of pleasant scent. It feels soft and buttery on the skin.

Unfortunately I don’t have many good things to say about this cleanser. First time that I used it to wash my face my makeup remained almost intact. All my mascara were left on my lashes despite the fact that I was wearing a normal mascara not a waterproof one. And the little amount that were removed from my eyes were left on the skin around my eyes. I washed my face three times with cleansing butter that night before giving up and using another cleanser.

The other problem I faced that night was that every time I wanted to add more cleanser or wash my face again I had to clean and dry my hands to avoid creating a dirty mess. I really prefer to pump out a cleanser, it’s more efficient and cleaner than using my fingers to take out a creamy cleanser.

Since this cleanser couldn’t remove any makeup I decided to use it after removing my makeup to wash my face. Unfortunately that didn’t work well either. After a week using the butter cleanser to wash my face I had breakouts all over my face. Since I hadn’t changed anything else I can say with confidence that the butter cleanser caused the reaction. It’s been ten days since I stopped using it and my skin looks much better. Please keep in my mind that I have never used any cleansing butter or cleansing balm before. My skin may generally be sensitive toward this type of cleansers.

Overall I’m not happy with my purchase and don’t suggest the butter cleanser to any one.

Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil (Product review)

(Contains adlink)

Hi guys

During last month or so my skin felt dehydrated and dull despite applying moisturizing cream regularly. One of the skin experts at beauty shop suggested that I used an oil treatment. Among all her suggestions I chose Clarins orchid oil since I’ve heard a lot about it.

First thing that I’ve noticed is the smell, it’s absolutely lovely. It reminds me of a fresh spring bouquet. I apply two drops all over my face and neck every night and some mornings. Although the texture is a little bit thick -it isn’t watery at all- it absorbs by skin almost immediately. I noticed that it fairly minimizes pores on the T-zone in addition to giving my skin a tint of glow. This was a surprise for me since there was nothing on the description about it being pore-minimizing.

I love to apply it after washing my face when the skin is damp. The oil keeps the moisture in and makes my skin feel amazing. I’ve been using this for last three weeks and I love the result. My skin feels softer, more radiant and really hydrated.

If you have dehydrated skin or just need something to rejuvenate and nourish your skin this Clarins oil treatment is a perfect option.
