It sounds divine but I just can’t stomach spending $56 or more on a cleanser. Seems a little cray, oui? Enter The Body Shop. They do a cleansing butter (same thing my pets) at a regular girl price point! The Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter is about $16 and is just divine.

How do you take your make-up off?
