5 Minute Review Friday - The Body Shop Camomile Waterproof Eye and Lip Make Up Remover

Welcome to another 5 minute review Friday post! This week I will be reviewing The Body Shop Camomile Waterproof Eye and Lip Make Up Remover. I had been on the hunt for an eye make up remover for a while, so I thought I'd give this one a try. I've not actually heard anything about this product anywhere, however I'm not usually disappointed with any of The Body Shop products, so I thought I'd wing it and hope it's good! Plus, I love the packaging! To use this all you do is pop a little of the liquid onto a cotton pad, wipe it over your eyes and lips, then you're good to go!

So as you can see in the photo above and below, the liquid inside is actually separated, so it requires a lot of shaking to mix them together. I've been using this product for about 2 weeks now, and I'm about a third of the way down the bottle, so it's going a little bit quicker than I was hoping, so I might need to slow down a tad on how much I use. So let's get on with the pros and cons!


  • It's unscented (at least I can't smell anything!), which in an eye and lip product I am very happy with. I hate putting a product on my face that has a scent to it.
  • It leaves my eye lashes feeling and looking super clean, this might I add was pointed out by my fiancĂ©! I didn't even realise my eye lashes weren't as clean as they could be before using this, so that was a nice added bonus!
  • It's doing wonders to the softness of my under eye area. It's not helping with any darkness (boohoo!), but they feel so clean and soft. I actually have this weird small skin tag thing under one eye, and that has seriously reduced in size since using this.
  • It does the job super quickly. Just wiping this over my eyes and lips a couple of times does the trick.
  • A little goes a long way! Don't drown the cotton pad like I've been doing!


  • Using a bit too much on your eyes can leave them feeling a bit tingly. After a little while this soon fades, but as long as you don't use too much this shouldn't happen.
  • After the first time using them on my lips, in the morning they felt very dry, so I recommend after using the product on your lips, to moisturise them afterwards to prevent this.
  • The only other con I can think of is I'm using it rather quickly! But knowing me like I mentioned above, I'm probably just using too much of the product.

Would I buy this product again?

It has left my eyes in such great condition! They are so soft and smooth. I just need something to tackle the darkness then I'm happy! But that mission continues... With my lips, I am still very happy with it, I just need to make sure I moisturise them afterwards. I think I would still try others if another came along, but for now I'm very happy with this one.

Have you tried this product? How did you find it? Let me know in the comments!

Ciao for now!

  1. Sounds like a good one to have then. I use the camomile oil cleanser from the Body Shop and I love that, so might give this a go :)
