After massaging it into the scalp, the mum was amazed how well the product moisturised the sensitive skin without causing irritation.

What’s more, multitasking mums have even used the miracle product to remove stubborn red wine and makeup stains out of their carpets.

Having tried every cleaning hack they could think of to shift the unsightly stains, all they had to do was apply a generous dollop of the butter to their carpets and work it into the fibres.

And just like that, the stains were gone without a trace.

Saya akan bercerita dan mereview dua oil based cleanser yaitu The Body Shop Camomile Sumptous Cleansing Balm dan The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil, keduanya HALAL (halal karena vegetarian, read this post for more info) yang tidak harus beli online dengan ingredients yang saya suka, dan tentu saja harganya tidak bikin elus dada.

Untuk TBS Chamomile Cleansing Balm ini saya beli dengan harga Rp 175.000 di olshop instagram, belum ongkos kirim, jadi hampir sama dengan harga counter sebetulnya, karena kemarin saya memang tidak sempat ke counternya tapi sudah butuh. Sedangkan TBS Chamomile Cleansing Oil saya beli langsung di counter Paragon Semarang seharga Rp 199.000 setelah hampir dua bulan memakai yang balm.

Langsung saja ke perbandingannya? Mari.

1. Harga dan Isi

Harga resmi kedua produk ini sama sama Rp 199.000, dengan isi cleansing balm 90 ml,


sementara cleansing oilnya berisi 200ml.

2. Packaging

Cleansing balmnya dikemas dalam wadah jar aluminium yang dibuka-tutup dengan cara diputar.


Saya merasakan kemasan ini sangat sangat tidak praktis terutama untuk saya ibu dua balita yang tidak punya waktu untuk berlama lama “hanya” untuk membersihkan wajah saja. Membukanya harus dengan dua tangan, mengambil dengan hati hati menggunakan spatula, lalu ditutup lagi, dan harus dipas-in pula tutupnya. God. #lebaydikityes

On the other hand, cleansing oilnya sangat sangat praktis, yaitu botol plastik dengan pump.


Mengambil produk cukup dengan satu tangan. Just like that. Anyhow, untuk bepergian, kemasan cleansing balm lebih travel friendly.

3. Tekstur dan Aroma

Bicara tekstur, menurut saya, tekstur TBS Chamomile Sumptuous Cleansing Balm ini sesuai dengan namanya, “sumptuous“, luxurious, balmy tapi gimanaa gitu, sedikit velvety, susah saya mendeskripsikannya.


Tekstur mewah balmnya berubah jadi oil setelah dipijatkan di kulit wajah, yang rasanya masih tetap luxurious.


Wanginya lembut dan tidak mengganggu, and yes it is a bit sumptuous too, the scent.

Nah dibandingkan dengan balmnya, perasaan ketika saya memakai TBS Chamomile Silky Cleansing Oil adalah, “meh”, alias biasa saja. Yah tekstur oil biasa lah nothing special. Aromanya sedikit lebih kuat dibanding yang balm, hence less luxurious.

4. Pemakaian

Untuk cleansing balmnya, saya biasa mengambil seukuran biji jagung dilebihkan sedikit (diambil dengan spatula).


Lalu saya pindahkan ke telapak tangan, baru kemudian saya oleskan di kulit wajah. Repot. Betul. Buka jar nya, ambil spatula, ambil balm nya, pindah balm ke tangan, tutup jar sambil pegang spatula, letakkan spatula di tempat bersih, baru deh bersihkan wajah. Dan setelah selesai, untuk menghapus dari wajah, menurut saya jauh lebih baik dengan cara dilap dengan washcloth basah, dibandingkan di bilas langsung dengan air.

Dibandingkan dengan cleansing balm, kepraktisan dan kemudahan pakai si cleansing oil, juara. Ambil oil dengan dipump satu tangan, gosok sebentar di kedua telapak tangan, bersihkan wajah, bilas, selesai.

5. Hasil Pemakaian

Di luar segala kerempongan memakainya, TBS Chamomile Sumptuous Cleansing Balm terasa jauh lebih melembabkan setelah pemakaian, dibandingkan TBS Chamomile Silky Cleansing Oil. Bagi saya pribadi yang jenis kulitnya normal, rasanya kulit ini setelah pemakaian balm nya tidak ada sensasi tight sama sekali. Apalagi dengan pemakaian rutin dan dikombinasi dengan face wash yang lembut (pH balanced), terasa kulit saya terjaga lembabnya walaupun setelah dibersihkan dan belum mengaplikasikan produk apapun.

Sementara oilnya, entah kenapa meninggalkan rasa tight. Mungkin karena saya sudah merasakan balm nya ya jadi terasa tight walaupun sedikit. Padahal tidak saya lanjutkan face wash lho. Saya rasa bagi yang berkulit oily, cleansing oil ini akan lebih cocok dibandingkan bagi yang berkulit normal seperti saya.

6. Kesimpulan

Jujur saya bingung ya lebih suka yang mana, karena kalau dari segi praktis, jelas TBS Chamomile Silky Cleansing Oil yang menang. Tapi dari segi kenyamanan untuk kulit, sangat jelas sekali TBS Chamomile Sumptuous Cleansing Balm yang jadi juaranya. Untuk value for money, kemungkinan, oil sedikit lebih unggul, saya perkirakan dengan pemakaian setiap hari (kan sunscreen harus dibersihkan dengan oil based cleanser), bisa sampai 8 bulanan mungkin. Atau malah pas setahun? Sementara balm nya saya perkirakan habis dalam 6 bulan dengan pemakaian setiap hari. Mau ganti oil cleanser lain, yang vegan/halal dengan ingredients yang saya suka, lebih mahal semua hahaha. Entah deh nanti yang mana yang akan saya repurchase.

Sepertinya cukup sekian review perbandingan saya kali ini. Semoga bermanfaat!
