TBS product love

When it comes to removing my eye makeup i can be soo lazy, many a night out have i come home with my false lashes, carbon e/s, liner galore and thought 'i really cba scrubbing away at this lot'. Not the best right? Well ive had this sitting in my skincare for ages but its never really been used, until the past few weeks that is.

What TBS say: "Float away the day with refreshing rosewater to gently cleanse and dissolve eye make-up. Also conditions lashes so they feel soft and silky."

How to use it: "Squeeze a small amount onto a cotton wool pad. Close one eye and place the pad over the eye area for a few seconds. Gently sweep in a downward motion to remove eye make-up from the lids and lashes. Avoid dragging the skin as this may result in the formation of lines. Repeat with a cotton wool pad on the other eye. Rinse with clean water."

This really does get rid of everything, i hold it over my eye for about 15 seconds, the place it under my lower lashes, then gently going downwards with the cotton pad it removes it all. Some eye makeup removers are oily, and you are left with that greasy feeling after but you dont get that with this. The other common thing i experience with eye makeup removers is that feeling or blurry vision if it gets in your eyes.. you know what i mean? again with this i havent had any of that! Very impressed.

The key ingrediant here is obviously the Camomile, a natural property that soothes skin.

The Body Shop are all about fair trade/community trade so it came as no surprise when i read this on their website, "Camomile oil from Norfolk it helps support small farmers. Norfolk Essential Oils (NEO), a cooperative of mainly small scale tenant farmers, provides some of the chamomile oil used in our treatments. Based in a rural area of Norfolk in England, the farmers were facing increasing difficulties earning a livelihood from traditional crops, until in 1997 they diversified into essential oil production. When you buy one of our camomile products, you help keep this going. " nice to know companies source within the UK for ingrediants too.

Overall: I love this, it has replaced my Clinique Take the Day Off E,L&L in my skin care routine, and when i run out i have no doubt that i will repurchase another bottle.

Have you tried this? What did you think? Or do you have a fave eye makeup remover?

This sounds really nice, i HATE the eye-blurriness you get with some removers. I've got a bunch of high-end makeup removers (which i got free :P) and i really want to do a comparison with some cheaper brands but it seems so silly to buy more when i have so much to use up.
