Lancome Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover || Review

Hi Everyone!!

I have another makeup remover review for you. This one is Lancome Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover. Lancome is one of the most well respected brands in luxury skincare and beauty. While searching for good waterproof eye makeup removers, I stumbled upon this one. This product has great reviews and is adored by many. After trying it out for a while I thought I would share my opinion.

Lancome Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover || Review and Swatches

What Lancome says about the product:

This award-winning phenomenon gently whisks away all types of eye makeup, even waterproof. Simply shake to activate the bi-phase formula that leaves the eye area perfectly clean. The lipid phase lifts off eye makeup, while the water phase contains special emollients to refresh and condition skin without a greasy residue.

Lifts off all types of eye makeup, even waterproof mascara, while conditioning the skin. Leaves eyes feeling cool and refreshed, with no oily residue. No wonder there’s a cult following.

Ideal for sensitive skin and contact lens wearers.

What I think about the product:

I get really excited about unique products. What attracted me the most about this product was that it has a dual phase formula. On shaking the bottle, the two phases (water and the eye makeup remover) become a colloidal solution. The nerd inside me found this to be very interesting. Keeping physics aside, shaking basically activates the product. A couple of drops on a cotton pad, gently dabbed on the eyes really does the trick. The formula is really effective and works without requiring excess pressure or tugging around the gentle eye area. It does not cause any irritation to my sensitive eyes which I highly appreciate.

I disagree with the brand's claim that the product does not feel greasy. Although oil free, after use, the eye area feels a little oily. The oiliness however goes away in a few minutes leaving the area hydrated. The lashes feel very soft to touch and clean after use. I love that it leaves no residue behind. It has a mild pleasant smell which does not linger for long. All in all, it a really good product. No wonder it has such amazing reviews.

The packaging looks nice but I like the packaging of Maybelline Clean Express Waterproof eye makeup remover better. Speaking of Clean Express, I must say it does the job of removing the eye makeup just as well without causing any irritation. I think Clean Express is a good dupe for Lancome Bi-Facil. In fact half the ingredients are the same. Read full review on Maybelline Clean Express Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover HERE. It goes without saying that there is a huge price difference between the two.
