…ehhhr well not exactly. But I am in LUUURV with this Body Shop Camomile Eye Make-up Remover.
So much so that I already stocked up on a few more bottles!
I read about The Body Shop’s Camomile line a while back and about the benefits of using cleansing oil in your beauty routine, so when I went to pick up their Camomile Cleansing Oil (as promised here, review coming when emptied!), a bottle of this make-up remover “happened” to find its way to the till too… funny how that happens 😉
I have tested quite a few waterproof removers, and all have had similar results: Most of my (liberally-applied, extreme-volume) mascara still stays put, and I tend to keep on dabbing at my eyes until they become all red and irritated. This may or may not be the reason I “forget” to remove my mascara at night when I want to look flawless the next day – with
dry and crumbly day old “extra-oomph” eyelashes. #Iwokeuplikethis
And yes *gasp* I will form premature wrinkles by not removing my makeup. Don’t lecture me.
I have already traumatized myself enough and check my skin obsessively. I barely ever wear mascara and the whole not-removing process is thankfully not too frequent….
But again, I digress. Why do I talk/type so much?!
Anyhoo I’m not going to lie and say this makeup remover is better than all others – it’s not. But I do feel that it is slightly more gentle. It is part of the camomile line after all. Also, I learned a valuable trick all those years ago when I went to Clarins for my first products: It is a good idea to soak a cotton pad in remover before pressing it gently on to the eye for a few minutes. This ensures that most of your eye-makeup gets soaked up and you can avoid the “irritated red skin” that I know all too well. Patience is key my friends.. something I have yet to learn.. cue still frequent occurences of red, blotchy skin. #Iwillneverlearn
I paired this trick with The Body Shop’s Make-up Remover and used the cleansing oil for my face and any leftover eye make-up. I found the combo to work quite well and it is slowly becoming my new – post dance-party – routine 🙂 As mentioned earlier, I have already stocked up on more, so I think the Camomile Waterproof Make-up Remover will be sticking around for a little… it has stolen my heart, not just on Fridays 😉
Complete the removal process with a serum and some eye cream and you are good to go (to bed). Again, an update on my evening routine is in the making, so stay tuned!
Do you have a favourite eye make-up remover?
TGIF guys 😀 I’m going home for the weekend and cannot wait to be back in my “hood”.
With attitude and nail polish, Anoushé xoxo
