Even after trying, and loving, The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Oil and the Camomile Cleansing Butter, I was still hesitant about trying the Waterproof Eye and Lip Make Up Remover. I have the world’s most sensitive eyes and most high street offerings leave my eyes stinging and streaming after use. I have to admit that I would have avoided purchasing this if I had not won the Camomile range in a Twitter competition, but perhaps it was fate that brought this remover into my life.
This make up remover has to be one of the best eye make up removers that I have ever tried. It removes all of my eye make up so easily, and without any irritation whatsoever. It even removes the notoriously difficult Benefit They’re Real mascara, without any tugging, pulling or copious piles of cotton wool pads.
As this remover is a bi-phase formula, you have to shake the bottle before use to mix the two layers of oil and water together to activate the remover. Otherwise it won’t work! After I have given the bottle a good shake, I dispense a few drops on to a cotton wool pad and hold it over my eyes for about 10 seconds. After that, I gently wipe away the make up, leaving my eyes feeling clean yet comforted. It does leave a thin, oily residue on the eye area, but this is easily washed away with a proper cleanse.
I do not have anything bad to say about this remover; it is a staple in my skincare routine. I have repurchased it about 4 times now, and will continue to do so. It works just as well as some of the high end offerings I have tried, perhaps even better. I’ve never paid full price for it either. The Body Shop always seem to have a voucher code floating about, of either a decent discount or a free gift. Sometimes, they offer both! I usually wait for the offers such as a 30% off code and nab a bottle for around the £5 mark.
Considering I have loved most of the items from the Camomile range, I’m thinking that I should check out what else The Body Shop has to offer. Do you have any recommendations for me?
