Wow, this cleanser is good!
I’ve been really interested in oil cleansers lately, because foaming ones can cause dryness – something I’ve been battling during the cold months we’ve just escape. The Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil from the Body Shop acts quickly to remove all of my makeup, even eyeliner and waterproof mascara, without tugging at the eye area.
It’s made with Community Fair Trade camomile, a soothing ingredient suitable for all skin types – especially those with sensitivity.
Although uniquely different, this cleanser is quite similar to the Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser. Both should be used with dry hands, on a dry face at first. Once melted into the skin, warm water can be added to dilute the consistency before rinsing away. They both eliminate dirt and impurities, while leaving the skin slightly hydrated.
I actually prefer the Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil better, and it’s a fraction of the price! It does a better job removing my makeup and doesn’t leave behind any sort of sticky residue.
I will say, however, that it is strongly scented and may not be everyone’s cup of tea. Give it a whiff before trying it yourself.
