The Body Shop Camomile Gentle Eye Make-up Remover - £8.00
 As you all know (Because I clearly don't go on about it enough) I have been on the hunt for a good eye makeup remover ever since Botanics decided to mess about with theirs. I tried the Simple kind to eyes remover but it just didnt cut it, so I decided to shop around a bit. I remembered years ago I used the waterproof version of this Body Shop Camomile makeup remover and I thought it was  AMAZING. So I hopped along to The Body Shop and picked up a bottle.

Reatailing for £8.00 for 250ml,  I dont think it is that bad. I know this is going to last me ages., which is a plus!  The things I look for in a good eye make up remover are that it removes all traces of makeup, doesnt smudge it all around my face and it doesnt sting my eyes. Well this particular one ticks all the boxes.

I simply take a cotton pad and soak it in solution then hold it over my eye for a few seconds. I prefer to do it this way, because I feel it gives the solution time to dissolve the makeup on my eyes. I wear liquid eyeliner, eyeshadow and mascara pretty much every single day, so there's a lot of product it needs to come off. I find that doing this for a few seconds then sweeping the cotton pad across my eye removes the majority of my eye make up in the first go. I do have to be careful not to soak the cotton pad too much though, or else it does go in my eye. It doesnt sting, but it just feels uncomfortable and leaves my eyes a little red afterwards! If Ive gone for an everyday neutral eye then this should get all the eye makeup off, however if Ive gone for a bit of a darker look. I sometimes have to repeat the process again.

So if you are on the hunt for a new eye makeup remover, then I would highly suggest that you give this one a try. I dont think you can get it in a travel size bottle so you will have to just go all out and buy the 250ml! (Unless you have a friend who will kindly decant some of theirs for you to try!) But in my opinion it is worth the purchase and I think I've found my new favourite eye makeup remover!
