Let's start from the texture. I am used to cleanse with liquid or creamy cleansers paired with cotton pads and I never really feel like my skin is really clean and my mascara is never really gone. I have been browsing around and more and more bloggers rave about the balm/butter cleansers in combination with a face cloth so I decided to pick up this one from the Body Shop.
It comes as a solid and melts as you pass your hand on the tub and you can get some on your fingers. This you apply on dry skin and it melts in as butter and melts all the makeup, and for that I mean waterproof mascara included! I am really impressed by how great this cleanser is! The feeling is really moisturising and nourishing on the skin.
After massaging it in for a half minute or so and I'm happy with it the removal of makeup, I take a muslin cloth soaked in warm water and go to take off all the cleanser, the makeup and some bonus dead skin cells. The cloth step acts as a gentle scrub step which I find really refreshing after a whole day with makeup on.
Finally I follow by rinsing my face with warm water to make sure everything is gone.
I finish off with my night time routine and ready to bed!
I love love love this cleanser and definitely recommend it! Cleans of all the makeup and leaves your skin nourished and happy!
You can find it online at thebodyshop.nl or in shops (at the Heuvel Galerie in Eindhoven) for 13 euros!
