The wait is over, The Body Shop Camomile Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover ($15.50, 5 oz) is now available. Praise the eye makeup remover gods! Finally the Body Shop has created a waterproof version of their popular Camomile Eye Makeup Remover.
We’re not worthy, we’re not worthy.
So when I heard the Body Shop was launching a new Camomile Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover I was all over it.
Here’s what I thought.
The original formula does an ok job with eye makeup. It’s pretty gentle, has a sudsy formula, and does ok with removing eye makeup but not necessarily waterproof mascara.
But I admit I was pretty hyped when I heard about the improved Body Shop Camomile Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover version!
Marketed as a way to remove not only waterproof eye makeup but also lip products as well this gentle eye makeup remover is a bi-phase formula that’s alcohol-free (yay no dryness after use) as well as fragrance-free. According to the Body Shop even sensitive and contact lens wearers will find the formula gentle enough to use.
It doesn’t give me trippy cloudy vision after use nor does it leave my eyes feeling greasy. It swipes away MOST makeup but I did notice it left traces of waterproof mascara behind. So I’d say it removes about 85-90% off your eye makeup with a bit left over that will need to be cleansed off when you wash your face.
If you’re paying the full $15.50 price tag I’d say it’s a bit expensive for the way it performs however, if you can get it on sale at around maybe $7-$8 it MIGHT be worthy of a pick up if you don’t use a ton of eye makeup.
Personally I’ll probably just stick to my Sephora Eye Makeup Remover. I prefer an eye makeup remover that gets it ALL off.
Anyone try it?
