Another Makeup Remover

I recently talked about my new favorites from The Body Shop in posts this week. With my love for the brand sparked by their Camomile Waterproof Eye and Lip Makeup Remover, I decided to pick up the Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil as another alternative for removing my “face of the day”. Although I enjoy the theory of a cleansing oil, I don’t think that the product is the one for me. I really enjoyed the waterproof makeup remover because it’s water base made it lightweight on the skin and felt like nothing at all. It removed my makeup quickly without dragging the skin or leaving a film on the epidermis. When I tried out the cleansing oil, however, I had a whole different experience. The oil is very thin and lightweight, which are the two pros of the product. With one pump, it dispenses the perfect amount of oil for the whole face. Applying the oil to the face doesn’t feel very greasy or disgusting but the actual makeup removal process is a huge con. As I rubbed the oil over my eye area to remove my eyeshadow and mascara, I instantly felt a thick film forming over my lashes. The oil seeped into the lash roots and made my vision extremely blurry, which was quite scary. It took a while for me to rinse the product completely off of my lashes and the whole process took around 5-7 minutes just for oil cleansing. Although the oil is a good’un, the fact that it left a thick film over my lashes and affected my vision was scary and disappointing. If you’re looking for a budget makeup remover, check out the waterproof makeup remover instead as it feels just like water over the skin.
