In all honesty, most eye makeup removers do their job sufficiently well. Heck, I never bothered with eye makeup remover until recently. I just used my normal facial cleanser, twice, to ensure I got all the goop off.
With those facts in mind, we will look beyond the “Does it remove makeup? Yes or No.” in this review.
Lancome’s Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover is packaged in a clear blue plastic bottle with a twist on (and leak-proof top). The dispenser is a small hole that you can dab the product onto a cotton ball/pad for application. The small hole keeps even a klutz like me from dumping too much remover or spilling it across my bathroom counter.
Shake Bi-Facil well before application. Get some on the cotton pad and then swipe onto your eye makeup. I found it removes my eye makeup pretty well, and most important- gently. There was no drying action and no pulling on sensitive eye skin. I found best results with one cotton pad for each eye, a few swipes (don’t scrub, ladies), and then leave the remnants of the product on your eye. Wash the Bi-Facil left-overs off during your normal face wash. Ta-da, eye makeup removed!
If you’ve done a smokey eye, or have quite a bit of eye makeup on that day, you may need a second pad, but I found this to be the exception and the Bi-Facil remover even removed my CoverGirl waterproof mascara easily.
Lancome’s Bi-Facil can be purchased online at Lancome.com, $26 USD for a 4.2 ounce bottle (it will last you quite awhile!).
