Makeup remover range by The Body Shop
Thou shall not wear heavy makeup if thou dost not have makeup remover” is the 11th commandment, in case you didn’t know guys. I remember there was a time I ran out of any kind of makeup remover at home and I outright refused to wear makeup (save for lipstick because it doesn’t touch my skin). I’ve been brainwashed taught by my mom at an early age that wearing makeup will ruin (yes RUIN) your skin if you don’t take it off properly at the end of the day. Probably also the reason why I was late in the makeup wearing parade – I didn’t own a single bottle of foundation until I started working after college. And yes, for fear of my skin being “ruined”. Thanks for the life lesson, Mom. Ha ha!
Because of this, I don’t mind hoarding all kinds of makeup removers especially since I’m in the “wear all the makeup you spend $$$ on!!!” stage. One range I’ve been extremely curious to try is The Body Shop’s camomile makeup remover selection. They have four kinds – Gentle Eye Makeup Remover, Waterproof Eye & Lip Makeup Remover, Cleansing Oil and Cleansing Butter. I’ve tried each of them in a span of a week so I’ll gloss over all of them quickly before showing you the one favorite I like most among the four.
Waterproof Eye & Lip Makeup Remover. A bi-phase formula that works just like the Lancome Bi-Facil and  the Clinique Take the Day Off makeup removers. There’s a bit of stinging when the liquid enters my eyes so that’s a heads up. I find that this really does dissolve waterproof makeup but you must let it sit on your eyes for a good 8-10 seconds or so. This removes even the toughest MAC Blacktrack gel liner and the Majolica Majorca Lash King mascara (that usually takes me ages (and a few tears!) to remove!!).
Sumptuous Cleansing Butter. At first, I wasn’t too excited at the idea that I had to wipe off with a muslin cloth after. It seemed too much of a task especially for lazyasses *ehem*. But when I dipped into that tub and smeared it across my face, I was amazed at how effective it was in melting all the gunk (see melty face below LOL). And wiping it all off with a damp, warm muslin cloth after was such a pleasure. I’m officially a convert.
Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. If you don’t need the intense waterproof-melting powers of the version above, this one’s the one for you. It feels just like water – with a little bit of sudsy-ness that works effectively in removing makeup. It won’t cause any stinging, blurriness, fogging whatsoever. It’s actually quite cooling and refreshing after use! For those who wear light, ‘everyday’ makeup – this is your best option.
Silky Cleansing Oil. If you’re a fan of cleansing oils, this one’s a contender. It has no mineral oil which is usually the main component in other cleansing oils (eg. Shu Uemura). The oils in this formula are soybean, sweet almond, sunflower seed and sesame seed. I’m ecstatic to report that I did not experience any breakouts with this (I usually break out with cleansing oils the day after)! I do feel that this isn’t as heavy duty as other cleansing oils with mineral oil in them, though as with heavier foundations, I still find traces left when I do the ‘makeup wipe test’.

    I have the cleansing butter and absolutely love it! I love using it to double cleanse my face. I really want to try the oil as well!

    Loving the half-and-half face. It really shows how gorgeous you are without make-up. I’m a fan of the TBS Eye & Lip Waterproof make-up remover. Next up on my to-try list is the balm!

    So glad you got to try the Camomile line!! I’m so curious about the muslin cloth and cleansing butter now! Definitely purchasing as soon as my Bioderma runs out!

    I have the cleansing butter and I adore it! I also have the cleansing oil. They’re really effective x

    I’ve just recently reviewed the cleansing balm and I am obsessed! I definitely want to try the oil. x

    I love you for showing the half smeared off face, Shari! The Cleansing Butter is highly intriguing to me. I’ve used the rms beauty Coconut Creme as my cleansing oil and did the muslin cloth thing for months and loved it! It made removing makeup more of a relaxing ritual than something I rushed through. I may give the cleansing oil a go when I finish up my current one. I can’t not use something to remove makeup before cleansing now! It just doesn’t work like what I’m used to and I can’t deal. I don’t know how I did it all those years before I discovered cleansing oils and balms! I’m with your mom on this topic! 😀

    Love your half smeared face!! I’ve only tried the cleansing butter from this range and while it’s nice i prefer the Clinique TTDO. I find that The Body Shop butter was a bit stingy and made my eyes really foggy. Have to say though, it does smell beautiful x

    With or without makeup, you are beautiful Shari! <3

    The cleansing oil didn’t suit me. I broke out sadly. 🙁

    HELLO?! Your half off face isn’t any different from your made up face.. by which I mean, that skiiiin <3

    I definitely agree with your quote. Having makeup remover is definitely a must have when makeup is part of your life. Anyway, I love your face. With or without makeup, you still look gorgeous!

    That shot with the half melted makeup….#2attractif 😉
    I own the camomile cleansing butter and though I really like it, I probably won’t be repurchasing just because I have a tub of coconut oil at home that I could easily use to take my makeup off. (I’ll probs end up pouring coconut oil into the empty tin because I JUST THINK THE TIN IS SO CUTE)

    Oh good lord, the first foundation I ever bought was at 16, and that was because of acne. And……….I DIDN’T OWN A MAKEUP REMOVER. I PRETTY MUCH THOUGHT THAT ANY OLD FACE WASH WOULD TAKE IT OFF. /CRINGECRINGE/ I can’t remember when I finally got around to using a proper makeup remover (probably in uni) so I DON’T EVEN WANT TO TALK ABOUT THIS.
