Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
I’ve been using The Body Shop’s Camomile Gentle Eye Makeup Remover for years and years, and I’ve sung its praises before, including way back in 2015. In 2021, a Body Shop customer service person told me it had been discontinued (my reaction: noooo), though it came back in 2022. A few months ago, it was out of stock again, but this time I found a great replacement, especially because it’s $7 less. I’m going to stick with it and not switch back!
The replacement, Burt’s Bees Micellar Cleansing Water, works perfectly. lt doesn’t have a strong smell, it’s gentle on your skin, and it takes off makeup easily (for me, brow pencil and mascara) with only a small amount. (You don’t have to rinse off micellar water, but because I wash my face with a salicylic-acid cleanser afterward, it gets rinsed anyway.)
This cleanser is free of parabens, phthalates, and petrolatum, and is designed for all skin types. (Burt’s Bees says it doesn’t have a fragrance, but it definitely has a mild scent.)
Note: On the Burt’s Bees website, the product only has 3 stars out of 5 (from 100+ reviews), but I’ve never had a problem and have been using it daily for a month or two.
This micellar water is $11.99 at Burt’s Bees and also available at drugstores, grocery stores, etc.
