The Body Shop Camomile Gentle Eye Make-up Remover {Product Review}

Hey guys. Today I'm going to do a review on The Body Shop's Camomile Gentle Eye Make-up Remover. I got this one as a prize from a blog giveaway, and I was only able to try it out today.

I have a 250 mL bottle which in my opinion is too big, and could last up months since I don't really use these kind of stuffs. The bottle for me is nice because its a simple bottle container in white, with the prints printed clearly which makes reading instructions and etcetera easy.

The print on the bottle says its a gentle eye make-up remover, conditioning, softening and can be used to clean the lash and the eyelid. I have an oily skin and since this is suitable for all skin types, I gave it a try.

Bottle says its made in the UK, thus the English and the translation in idk what language it is. I love packaging which has instructions in English because it makes reading a lot easy. I remember getting stuffs mostly from China or Korea and believe me, reading the back prints is no easy job. I could only rely on photos for instructions if there are any, and it still isn't enough.

Okay so here is my eye with make-up. I was just playing around with my eye pencils and mascara in this look. You can say I'm practicing how to line my lashes, and I think I still have a long way to go. But I love the effect on this noobie make-up blaaah.

So after playing with make-up, I got a piece of clean cotton and pour an ample amount of the eye make-up remover on the cotton pad. I gently dabbed it into my lids, and onto my lashes as well. While doing this I suddenly felt a hot sensation on my eyelids. I don't know why that happened, prolly because this is my first time to do this, or does it really feel that way with make-up removers? I was even tempted to stop the application and wash it with water but then opted to finish removing the rest of the make-up and see what happens.

After successfully removing the make-up, here's how the cotton looked like. All the make-up were removed, and the cotton was all dirty.

My Review

* Gentle - I was really hoping for it to be painless, or at least no painful feeling while applying it. I mean, bottle says its gentle, so I don't know why it felt hot at first. Although nothing seriously happened, still I was frightened. My lids could get burned lol haha.

* Camomile - Hmmm I have never seen or smelled this one before so I have no idea how it smells like. I was thinking it would be floral-ish or something but this make-up remover in my opinion does not smell anything like camomile. It has a faint smell which I won't say I don't like but its not something I like either.

* Eye make-up Remover - As a make-up remover, I must say I am happy with how it was able to remove the make-up on my eyes. I didn't have a hard time removing my make-up with this one.

The Good
◘ Nice packaging
◘ Easy to use

◘ My lids felt hot at first
◘ Smell is not nice


If it wasn't for that hot feeling at first, I would have given this product a 4 out of 5 rating. But if I will base my ratings on what it does, I'd say its  a 5. For a make-up remover, I think this product is worth the try. I'm not sure about repurchasing because I don't know how much this cost but I might try to look for other alternatives that are locally available here.
