How do you know how much of this to use? I am taking out maybe half a teaspoon with a spatula but I have no idea how much is needed. Also, does anyone use a few drops of water to blend it?

I have this and just use my fingers to apply so just use as much as I feel I need, I don't use water to blend either I got a Muslin cloth with mine and just remove with that after letting it sit a few seconds

I use less than you, Sonata, and I rub it in/on well and then take it off with a hot cloth.

I love it, and have been following it with the drops of youth bouncy mask in the evenings which I think is really making a difference. You only need tiny amounts of both.

I use this and only take out a small smear with my fingers, massage in then remove with a hot flannel. Fallulah I am tempted by the drops of youth but the £22 cost was putting me off a bit. I thought that was a bit steep for the Body Shop. Is it really worth it?

Thank you everyone. I will have to try this without wetting my face first. It's just a habit. I do takeit off with a hot muslin cloth though. Home Bargains/Savers do a similar one to Liz Earle and cheaper !

Suze it is good but I got a bit lucky with mine...

I had a sample of the bouncy mask when I bought the cleansing butter and there was a ten pounds off next purchase voucher on the receipt. The sales assistant said I could use it to come back and buy the mask if I liked the sample. So I did indeed go back, only to be told the voucher didn't apply to 'new' products. I explained that I had been told I could use it against the mask and they honoured it. So I got it for £12. Credit to them for doing that.

I haven't used it for long enough yet to decide whether I'd buy it again at full price but it is good.

Camomile Balm - I LOVE it grin. I was underwhelmed by the Camomile eyemake up remover so I was really pleased with the butter.
I dig my thumbnail in (i have short nails) to hoik out a lump and use a hot muslin cloth.

I tried a bit of the sleep mask on my hand, it felt gorgeous. I was a bit hmm at £22 too but I have a £10 off so I will buy some even though I'm doing No Spend June next time I'm out.

I bought some cloths from Dirty Works at Sainsburys , also got Liz Earle cloths and some from Superdrugs Radiant.

Actually, I bought the Superdrug overnight Retinol mask, IIRC it was £6ish for a small tube but you don't need much. Really good results.

I saw an overnight mask (Ultrasun) on QVC so might try that if I don't buy the Drops of Youth one.

I am also a new convert to the camomile butter and really like it. It smells divine too. I tend to just use some on my fingertips. I think the trick is to apply it to dry skin. I bought the BS muslin but found it a bit harsh. So I went back and bought another cloth thing for the BS which is supposed to be softer but it's like using a square of rubber on your face. Terrible. And it goes rock hard when dry (but softens again when you wet it)

I might see if I can get some other muslins from elsewhere.

Ooh I got a cloth like that with a SBC (Simply Beautiful Cosmetics) cleanser.
It was pink and like one of those funny kitchen sponges that dry out (so it doesn't harbour bacteria) really didn't like it. I use a muslin once then put it in the laundry.

I put new ones in a hot wash when the washing machine has its maintenance 90c wash then in the normal laundry. Softens them nicely.
