Hi Everyone! 🙂
I have always loved certain products from The Body Shop – I think it’s one of those shops that have done really well to change with the times. Now shops have to concentrate on social media, online shopping AND maintain their physical stores. My favourite products of all time from The Body Shop are my wooden paddle hair brush, the Almond Hand Cream and the Brazilian Hair Serum.
Now, I have another product to add to that list and it is the Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil. This is something I’ve wanted to invest in for a very long time – I soon realised that this is the perfect cleanser to leave in the shower to use once I have taken off the majority of my make up after a long day at work.
It comes in a handy pump bottle and it claims to be able to take off all make up including waterproof make up. It costs £11.00 but I’ve heard a lot of bloggers saying that one bottle lasts them AGES. (Btw it feels really good to do a good old product review, feels like I haven’t done one in ages). When I went to The Body Shop there was a buy one get one half price offer on skincare, so this was great!
This handy product now lives in my shower, I like using it best when I shower in the evening. I wouldn’t say it takes off ALL make up, because when I have used Benefit They’re Real mascara in the day and I want to remove it – this doesn’t take it ALL off. What I’ve found is that if I just use this to take it off I end up with ever so slight panda eyes when I come out of the shower – which I can see when I run a cotton bud under my eyes.
However, if I use a make up wipe to take off the majority of my make up before I get in the shower then the Camomile cleanser works great.
You are meant to apply this dry, then use some water to emulsify this oil as you rub it into your skin. I find that the scent is really calming and natural – this I liked. I like that it isn’t a thick oil either – it is most definitely a silky consistency and this is a great feature!
I do think my skin feels great after I use this, the only let down is that I don’t think it will remove all eye make up. At the same I don’t think it would feel as natural on the skin if the formula was stronger :).
I’m really glad I bought this, as I wanted a cleanser that I could use to make sure all of my make up is off after using wipes – so I’m really pleased!!
