Review: Camomile Oil from The Body Shop
With the wedding only 10 weeks away (eek!) I was very thankful when a lovely box of camomile oil products arrived from The Body Shop. I have been feeling a wee bit stressed out, and as we all know, camomile is renowned for its calming properties!
The Body Shop’s Community Fair Trade camomile oil comes from Norfolk Essential Oils, a family-run co-operative here in England. The essential oil is made by steam-pressing and cooling freshly cut flowers. The Body Shop’s work with Norfolk Essential Oils provides the farmers with a reliable income, and has also helped revitalise the local economy.
I was sent three products from the gorgeous camomile oil range.
1. Camomile Waterproof Eye & Lip Make up Remover (150ml) £8
I generally always wear waterproof mascara as am prone to be a bit emotional… so this is a must-have product for me, and any waterproof make-up wearer! It’s fantastic for sensitive skin as it’s fragrance, colour and alcohol-free. It definitely does what it says on the tin (or rather, bottle)!
2. Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter (90ml) £12
This is my new favourite product! It smells absolutely divine and instantly calms. The cleansing butter works by gently melting away make-up and impurities, and leaves my skin feeling super soft, clean and indulged!
3. Pink Grapefruit Hand Cleanse Gel (60ml) £2.50
This is the perfect size for my changing bag and ideal for using post-nappy change on-the-go! I love that it smells of zingy grapefruit, rather than alcohol as a lot of the cleansing gels do.
All of the above products can be found in store or on The Body Shop website.
