when a favourite is no longer a favourite

The Body Shop's Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil was a favourite of mine for a long time. I'd been through bottles of the stuff, and it was repeatedly featured in favourites and empties. I loved how well it took my makeup off, and, more than that, how soft it left my skin feeling. And I would have continued feeling this way if it weren't for Lush's Ultrabland Facial Cleanser. I bought my first bottle/pot of these around the same time, and I loved them for different reasons. Ultrabland was heavier, but made my skin feel incredibly moisturised.

In the last six months, I've been using Ultrabland the majority of nights, and that overly moisturised feeling I once felt has become the norm, so anything else feels almost drying in comparison. The cleansing oil, for example, doesn't leave my skin feeling all that soft any more. It doesn't remove my makeup as well as Ultrabland either, and that's the main reason why it's no longer my favourite cleanser.

It's not The Body Shop's Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil, it's me. I've changed. Seriously, though, if I gave myself a break from Ultrabland and went back to it, I'd probably love it again. I just don't want to give myself a break from Ultrabland any time soon. It works for me. 


  1. Oh man, I bloody love Lush's UItrabland and will always, always recommend it to people!

  3. I'm allergic to rose so could never try Ultrabland, but I feel the exact same way at times with products! Great post as always x

  4. Great post! I hate it when you love a product and for whatever reason you fall out of love with it! Great post though x

  5. Sounds like I need to try both of these out! Thanks for the review!

  6. I've actually done the opposite switch, still love both products and I'm sure as winter kicks in I'll be back to Ultrabland. Lucy at Lucyy Writes x
