Walker’s Apothecary Chamomile Soothing Gel


The only beauty product I take with me to the gym is Murad’s Clarifying Body Spray ($37). Ladies, if you workout – get it, use it, you’ll start swearing by it! I spray it all over my back, chest, and neck immediately after getting out of any sweat-inducing class and it prevents me from getting even a trace of body break-outs. I’m too worried about my sensitive skin to spray in on my face, so I just splash some water before heading home. The problem is, and I know this is kinda gross, I don’t always shower immediately when I get back to my apartment. More often then not my computer is calling my name and before I know it I’m knee deep in emails. Given my sensitive skin this sometimes causes some irritation (mostly small bumps), which is frustrating because I know it’s my fault! So, in an attempt to be proactive I’ve started using a sample of Walker’s Apothecary Chamomile Soothing Gel ($32) that I was given.

For the past two weeks or so, the second I get back from the gym I wash my hands, quickly lather on some of the gel and let it sit for about 20 minutes while I check my emails. It lets me do what I “need” to do, while forcing me to get into the shower in a timely manner (it’s kinda sticky so you really wouldn’t want it on your face for more then 20 minutes).

I found the gel to have a more citrus then chamomile smell (must be the lemon oil in the formulation…), and I actually have to say I don’t love the scent and could do without some of the sticky feeling of the gel, but the tell-tale is that my skin is totally (knock on wood!), blemish free right now, so it did do a great job at cleansing and calming my red, sweaty, post-workout skin.

  1. Really love using chamomile on my skin! I’m using Body Shop’s chamomile eye makeup remover right now. Pretty amazing.

    This looks really great though. MUST TRY!
