AMW Reviews: The Body Shop Silky Cleansing Oil

Okay, I got this early this year or late last year...I took a picture of it, stored this for months then finally, I ran out of cleansing oil and I remembered I have The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil in storage.  Yes, it finally got its' shining moment inside my bathroom.

AMW says ---
  • Very gentle.
  • Smells great.
  • Pump packaging.
  • Can remove almost all traces of makeup.  (except eyeliner when you tightline)
  • Works for all skin types.
  • Never feel greasy on skin.
  • Does not irritate my skin.
  • The bottle is not safe for travel.  It leaks even if you lock it.
  • Size, I wish they offer bigger size like that of Shu Uemura.
A very gentle, good smelling cleansing oil that is 100% non-greasy that works really well in removing all traces of makeup.  I just wish they come in bigger sizes!

  • Use this as a first step to cleansing.  Follow with your favorite makeup remover after.
  •  If you plan to travel with this cleansing oil, transfer the content into a smaller, more secure bottle.  You may find bottles from Beabi or K.I.T.
  • If you have waterproof eyeliner and mascara on, close your eyes, gently massage the oil, leave it for a couple of minutes, wipe it with warm cloth.
  • If you find using TBS Silky Cleansing Oil on the eye area a bit too scary for you, use separate gentle eye makeup remover prior to Cleansing Oil usage. 
  • One pump is enough for the whole face if you have minimal makeup on.
Will I repurchase?Yes!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Cleansing Oil users.  Works for all skin types.

Where to purchase and how much?
Available at local The Body Shop stores priced at Php695.00/200ml

Have you tried this Cleansing Oil from the Body Shop?
How do you feel about this product?
I  know there are many inexpensive cleansing oils especially from Korean brands, though I personally think this is one of the most "lightweight" cleansing Oil I tried to date!

  1. How does this compare to the SNOE cleansing oil and Muji one? Have you tried either of those? :)
