If you’re looking for a cleanser that works in balance with sensitive, dry skin then this is definitely the cleanser of choice for you! It has a thick creamy consistency and completely removes all traces of makeup

Cleanser:  The Body Shop Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser c/o
It’s very light on the skin and you don’t need much to get a full coverage application to remove face and eye make-up! It works perfectly at doing both without the need for eye make-up remover. My skin is not sensitive and more on the oily side compared to dry, but I do notice in the winter my skin does start to get dryer due to the environment and weather. I find the cleanser easy to remove with a hot cloth and it only takes a matter of seconds to apply and remove, it’s very gentle and calming on the skin and the effects last a good couple of hours after removal. 
My skin is left feeling soft, balanced and calmer, my redness is reduced and my complexion looks much more even! Since using this my skin feels more hydrated and softer after removing the product, and I have also noticed an improvement in my skin with no signs of blemishes or blocked pores. This definitely does the job and leaves your skin fresh and clean, it will come in great for dry, sensitive skin but also combination, even if you suffer from slightly drying skin during the colder months you should give this a go and hopefully you will notice an improvement too. 
The only concern I have with this cleanser is the fact it’s difficult to come out when you have used half of the bottle up, making it hard to get the product out! I have to shake vigorously before squeezing the bottle to get the cleanser out, but the bottle packaging is pretty damn tough. This is nothing major and it doesn’t compromise on the quality of the cleanser and the results. I am really happy with this and feel it will last a good couple of months when used once daily! Also because its packed full of natural ingredients the expiry date is less, and this particular cleanser will only last you 9 months before it expires.
What’re your thoughts on this cleanser? Do you suffer from dry/sensitive skin? 
xo, Jenny

    Haha! I have had that problem before especially when the product gets below half way in the tube and you cant get it out! Sometimes if you can cutting them open with scissors helps 🙂 some packaging you can’t tho! such a waste…. You should give this a try it really calms the skin xx

    Thanks Alice and this is one to try! especially now the weathers getting colder, this has calmed my break outs and redness (not that I get much blemishes now) but it leaves your skin so soft x

    This sounds quite lovely! My skin is oily, but can feel very sensitive and dehydrated, especially in wintertime. May have to snag as sample of this 🙂

      That’s just like my skin! It just feels really dry, especially at nights x

    I’ve actually been looking for a good cleanser for the longest time, it’s hard to find a good and consistent product. Will actually give this a try since there’s a Body Shop right by where I live!

    Fantastic post! I’ve always seen Body Shop products but for some reason I have never picked anything up. But this cleanser sounds amazing. Perhaps the next time I’m close to a place that sells Body Shop products I’ll pick it up!

      Thanks 🙂 you should give this a try xx

    I’ll definitely have to try this for the winter! Right now I can’t afford to pay $20+ for my regular cleanser, so I think something like this would be right at the proper price range for my tight college budget!

    I have terrible dry and sensitive skin, you know when your skin is so dry is actually hurts?! I currently use an aloe vera moisturiser and it does help, I try to stick to natural ingredients as much as I can. I’m definitely going to try to give this cleanser a try, TBS are always a great brand for sensitive skin.

      Wow that must be painful? its great you’re using aloe products already as the plant soothes beautifully and leaves your skin super soft! and they are great for all skin types, I love lots of the ranges not just the tea tree range suited for oily skin! They all work great xx
