I love experimenting with new products and finding new ways of doing things so when I went to the Body Shop Make up discovery day back in October, I was happy to get my hands on the cleansing oil!
The Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil, is part of their Camomile range which has been designed to be suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin. For more info and the full product list including reviews, read my previous post
It’s made with Community Fair Trade Oil and it claims to effortlessly lift impurities including waterproof makeup. You are to shake before use, apply on dry skin and add water to emulsify and simply rinse away!
Here’s my little preview of the product! Be warned, makeup free pics included lol
I’m not sure about ‘effortlessly’ part but it does remove your makeup quite well. I use 2-3 pumps on my face, add water and massage it in. To remove my mascara I just concentrate on my eyes and rub around the closed eye, been careful to not get the product into my eye. Then rinse with warm water. I like it comes in a pump bottle making it so much easier to use, smells nice and turns milky white in addition to water.
Depending on how much makeup I have on, I would wash my face 2-3 times if I am wearing minimal make up like a concealer and powder OR 3-4 even 5 times if I am wearing a full face, only because I like to make sure I take ALL my make up off. It does leave your skin silky soft afterwards and you can get away with not using a moisturiser after ( depending on your skin type obvly) but I always follow up with a face wash anyway so I go in with a moisturiser as the final step in my evening routine.
I do like it however it can be a bit time consuming and messy versus your traditional makeup remover wipes. I think it’s great for those days you don’t have a lot of makeup on.
