The Body shop cleansing oil
I bought my first bottle of this cleansing oil in the Summer of 2017 and I was not impressed. Yes, it was silky to the touch, it was gentle on the skin, it had a delicate scent, it melted most of my make up and it was not expensive. But it didn't remove all my make up and I should clarify for you that I don't use a waterproof mascara or a lot of make up. It stung when it got into my eyes and rinsing my eyes with water repeatedly was ineffective at diminishing the sting... And the bottle's pump leaked.
I wasn't going to repurchase this cleansing oil but when I was waiting for Sulwhasoo cleansing oil ( which I absolutely love) to arrive from Korea, I ended up buying it. Again, the bottle pump leaked. And again, whenever it got into my eyes- it stung. If you read other reviews on line, and I encourage you to do so, you will see that some people love it while others mention the same negatives as me- doesn't remove all make up, it stings if you get it into your eyes and the bottle pump leeks.
The Body shop camomile cleansing butter
The cleansing butter was even worse. First of all, the packaging was dreadful. The tub was very awkward to open. On a positive note, this delicately scented butter felt lovely on the skin. But again, it didn't remove all my make up and stung when I got it into my eyes.
I wish that The Body shop will repackage the balm into a better tub and sort out the leaky bottle pump of the cleansing oil.
These are not bad cleansing oils and if I get myself a good eye make up remover instead of using these oils to remove my make up, perhaps I would be ok with these products performance.
Would I repurchase?
As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I ended up repurchasing the cleansing oil and have been using it while waiting for the Sulwhasoo cleansing oil.
PS. In the past week I tried the cleansing oil by The History of Whoo, but I really dislike the scent, so I will not be purchasing that one. But I was very surprised. The History of Whoo products are usually beautifully scented.
