The Body Shop Camomile: Love, Like and Loathe


I’ve been trying The Body Shop Camomile range and since I’ve been using them for a good couple of months now I figured it was time to do a little bit of a review. I’ve tried the Cleansing Oil, Waterproof Eye Make Up remover and Gentle Eye & Lip Make Up Remover. It’s actually a bit of an odd one because of the three there’s one product I love, another I like and sadly one that I loathe…


LOVE || The Body Shop Camomile Waterproof Eye & Lip Make Up Remover for £8/150ml. I completely adore this stuff. I loved it so much I bought my mum a bottle for Christmas. It takes off my eye make up so easily, which is the main battle because I absolutely loathe scrubbing at my eyes until they’re red and sore (this has happened far too often in the past). It’s quick, easy to use and I don’t experience any sensitivity with it. It’s a oily texture but it doesn’t leave my eyes feeling oily or sticky after use. The only downside is that I used it all up so quickly! Definitely on my repurchase list.

LIKE || The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil for £10.00/200ml. I like this product, it does a good job of removing my make up. It’s very quick and easy to use. Although it’s an oil based cleanser I don’t find that it leaves my skin more oily (as you might expect) which is always a concern because I can suffer with some terribly oily areas. I think for the pricepoint it’s one of the best cleansers on the market, but unfortunately I have my favourites and this will just never compare. I’ve also heard a lot of people saying how this cleanser takes off all your make up and I don’t find that to be true. I have to remove my eye make up before use or else I end up looking like a panda gone wrong. Still, this is a nice easy product for general cleansing and not necessarily make up removal, and in truth I’ve got a lot of use out of it.

LOATHE || The Body Shop Camomile Gentle Eye Make Up Remover £8/250ml. If this works for you then that’s completely great because of the three it’s the best value for money, but I found that this product was not for me at all! First of all it smells horrible and I can look past that if the product has other redeeming qualities, but I was so disappointed when I used this. It removes eye make up to a good standard though you do have to undergo a little scrubbing. What killed this product for me is the fact that it stung my eyes terribly, and I’m not normally someone who suffers with this when removing my eye make up. It’s marketed as a gentle remover and sadly I found it anything but. Very disappointed, I have no idea what I’m going to do with this!

Let me know if you’ve tried anything from The Body Shop Camomile range and what you thought. I’m definitely going to have to invest in the Cleansing Butter to complete the set!

    The waterproof eye and lip make up remover sounds amazing! Lush’s ‘Ultrabland’ is the best I’ve found for removing makeup, makes eye makeup come off as easy as it goes on! Great post x

  2. I love body shop but never have tried these, so its defiantly one for the list!

  3. I have tried the camomile cleansing balm which is really good, but it’s similar to Lush’s Ultrabland which I prefer! X

  5. The waterproof eye makeup remover sounds so good! I’m currently using Lumene and it stings my eyes so much, so I’m going to give the one from The Body Shop a try. Thanks for the review!
