Camomile Cleansing Range, The Body Shop

The Camomile Cleansing range by the Body Shop offers affordability and effectiveness. Having these three products in your wash bag covers all you face cleaning needs. The only thing else you’ll need is warm water and a flannel.

The Body Shop brand is a big UK ‘forever against animal testing’ brand.

Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil

This cleansing oil is so gentle that it would suit all skin types. This was the first oil cleanser I ever bought and I have been using it for years. Would recommend to everyone. I use this as both an makeup remover and as a face cleanser. I would remove with a flannel, but you could rinse off too. Available here:

The Good:

No mineral oil, no sticky residue, removes makeup effortlessly, leaves skin feeling soft. AND £12.00 for 200ml! This bottle lasts me ages – as a little goes a long way.

The Bad:

I don’t have a problem with fragrance but it does have a definite camomile-y smell, which some may not like. HOWEVER, the big downside is that the packaging is extremely leaky and very well known for being a bit shit. Do NOT take with you travelling, the oil will end up all over your wash bag. Not good. Product inside is fab though – please body shop sort out the packaging and I will be eternally grateful !

Camomile Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

This is a watery consistency makeup remover, it’s gentle and effective. I use this to remove eye makeup, and sometimes as a whole face makeup if I’m really lazy – as a micellar water. I do not use micellar waters, they are too harsh, I use this instead. Available here:

The Good:

No mineral oil. It works, apparently it’s also really good at removing carpet stains?? But it gets everything off your face, without stripping you face of it’s natural oils. It’s £3 for 100ml!!

The Bad:

Smells a bit odd, but not terrible. I don’t mind.

Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

This is a cleansing balm. It’s quite a greasy balm so I would always remove with a flannel, and maybe avoid if you’re acne prone. I would use as a makeup remover and a face cleanser.

The Good:

No mineral oil. Removes make up brilliantly. Leaves the skin soft, and is an easily accessible bargain. £10.00 for 90ml and stands in good competition with other more expensive make up removing balms. Available here:

The Bad:

Synthetic wax and shea butter probably means acne prone/combination skin’s can’t use.
