Review: The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil...


For quite a few years, I used Liz Earle's Cleanse & Polish (review here) to remove my makeup but throughout the past year or so, my skin has grown to hate it. After looking at lots of different cleansers and reading countless reviews, I finally decided to pick up a bottle of The Body Shop's Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil and it is now an essential in my skincare regime. 

I use this cleanser as the first step in my evening skincare routine. I take about 1 or 2 pumps into my hands and massage it all over my face - you can literally feel the makeup melting away in a matter of seconds. Once I have massaged this all over my face, and my makeup has dissolved, I run my face cloth under warm water and use this to wipe away the residue. My skin is left feeling clean and certainly not like I'd just smothered it in oil so don't let this put you off. 

As someone who has quite sensitive skin, I haven't been aggravated by this product and I'm putting this down to the camomile aspect of the cleanser. 

The only thing to be wary about is the packaging of this product, I have found it tends to leak a little bit when travelling and sometimes the pump shoots out all over. 

Before purchasing this product, I'd never tried a cleansing oil but now I don't see the point of trying more expensive options when I can't find anything wrong with this one! 


Application: Effortless and smooth
Cost: £10

-Suitable for sensitive skin
-Easy to use
-Makeup dissolves effortlessly
-Removes waterproof mascara
-Lightweight formula

-The pump is a bit temperamental

All in all, I would recommend this cleaning oil to anyone who wears makeup. It is amazing!

Have you tried this cleansing oil?

  3. The same happened to me with the Liz Earle C & P, too! I love oil cleansers, as my skin is quite dry and this is a lot cheaper than my current favourites, so I'll have to give it a try!
