REVIEW: The Body Shop's Camomile Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover

make up remover for sensitive skin that softens cleanses and conditions not effective on waterproof mascara
The fullsize 250ml bottle costs £8 and is available here

I received The Body Shop's Camomile Gentle Eye Make-Up  Remover as a free gift with a make-up purchase quite a while ago now. It took me ages to get around to using it but when I did I found that I really liked it. I have quite sensitive skin and although the skin around my eyes doesn't feel especially sensitive I like to use gentle products on that area as I think it's better for my skin in the long term.

The Body Shop's Chamomile Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover is clear liquid which works best when you apply it onto a cotton pad and then gently sweep it across your lids. It works brilliants at removing eyeshadow, eye liner and non-waterproof mascara. I found that one cotton pad was usually enough to remove all of my day to day eye make up. I did, however, try using this all over my face and found that it was very effective at removing all my make-up- that includes, foundation, concealer, blush, highlighter etc. It didn't have a problem getting these sorts of products off my skin. 

I would certainly agree that it lives up to it's name as it definitely felt gentle to use and I didn't find that it irritated my eyes or skin in any way. I felt comfortable using it everyday and would highly recommend it to those of you who don't wear waterproof mascara. It didn't remove my waterproof mascara from MaxFactor (it is a bit of a devil to get off) but I expected that as other gentle make-up removers have also struggled with that particular mascara.

The fullsize product is 250ml which I think would last you at least a couple of months making it's RRP of £8 (or less if you take advantage of one of The Body Shop's regular offers) very good value for money. I'm almost certainly going to repurchase this in a month or so but I am currently trialing the Body Shop's Camomile Waterproof Eye Make-Up Remover so look out for a review of that next month.

Have you tried The Body Shop's Camomile Eye Make-Up Remover before? What do you use to take off your make-up?



  1. I usually just use Simple, but looking for something that will last longer and is a bit more upmarket. So might give this a go :) xo

  2. This does sounds like a good product for me as I have sensitive skin too!! £8 is pretty good for 250ml x

  3. This sounds so lovely! I love products that are gentle yet effective :)

  4. I live by the waterproof version of this - its so amazing at getting off my mascaras! Hopefully you will enjoy it too!

  5. This was my go-to eye makeup remover until it started stinging my eyes. I don't know why, it was fine for ages, but then suddenly started to make my eyes really unhappy... I now use Bioderma to remove my makeup! x

  6. I don't wear waterproof mascara so I think this would be perfect for me!


  7. If you check the website there is 40% off this weekend!! If only I hadn't spent all my money this would be top of the list :) xxx
