Lancome Bi-Facil



Never have i had a product that actually made me want to do a review that much...
...only Bi-Facil...
Never had a product actually made me want to try it all for myself...
...only Bi-Facil...
Never had a product interested me that much that waiting for it to arrive made me go bananas...
...only Bi-Facil....

Ok,enough with that!

I sound like an advertiser. But seriously, of all the products that i have read & tried, only this one had me going in circles. Lots have said that this is good, some said no, others said that its not oily, others said it is....It made me go crazy trying to figure out what is what. There are lots of products that have different reviews & opinions from everybody, but its only this that made me itch to try.

On to the review....

Double-phase, fresh-as-water liquid eye makeup remover.

Activates when shaken to gently whisk away even waterproof eye makeup, while conditioning and refreshing the skin. Ideal for sensitive skin and contact lens wearers. Leaves eyes feeling cool and relaxed, with no oily residue. Ophthalmologist-Tested For Safety.

Like most Eye makeup remover, it has 2 layers. On which im guessing that the top layer is the oily stuff. You have to shake it so to mix those 2. As soon as you do so, it will have this whitish milky look. Then of course, tip the bottle to get it on your cotton pad.

It was said to 'leave no oily residue'...which had me thinking...did i miss something? Because i can fairly remember when i used it...(the moment that i got it), that it did have that greasy feel...I remember that i shook the bottle, made sure that i get the 2 layers mix before i used it. But then it still got that oily residue after i used it...so much for wishing that this is actually 'oil-free'.

Anyways, its not a big deal since its a really gentle makeup remover. It didn't sting my eye...not one bit!...& makes the removal of waterproof mascara fairly easy...even my CG Lash Blast! I thought that the only thing that can easily remove CG Lash Blast is Muriatic Acid...lol!...but Bi-Facil was able to remove it with just one cotton pad...cool!

I can still remember when i used Clinique's Take the day off cleansing makeup remover on my eyes to remove my makeup, it stings a lot & made my eyes all red (good thing that it was my friends' & she just asked me to try it). So if im going to compare it to that then i'd go for this... I also tried L'oreal Plenitude Eye Makeup Remover (again,just once) & it stings a bit, though not as much as Clinique did & it took a couple of tries before i was able to take out my waterproof mascara...but i like the cooling effect of that...

Anyways, i haven't tried that much eye makeup remover...as what i said, i only use cold cream or Olive Oil in removing my face make up & currently, L'oreal Dermo Expertise Lip & Eye make up remover for my eye makeup.

Today, i went out to buy something on the bookstore. Since Im just gonna be out for a couple of minutes i don't need to put that much makeup, but decided to just put mascara & line my eyes with gel liner. Of course i used CG Lash Blast & Fanny Serrano Gel Liner

Tried to take a good picture but i failed...but I still did just so that you would have an idea what i did. So of course i did it to both of my eyes. Then as soon as i get home its time to take it off.

I used one cotton pad for each eye. I tip the bottle 2x to get Bi-Facil on my pad, & 3x for L'oreal. I used L'oreal on my right eye & Bi-Facil on my left. I was actually surprised to find out that it works just the same. Same oily residue & gentle formula...



Both made my eyes 'cloud' a bit, but just for a couple of seconds..a few blinks & its gone...
As for the oily residue, i don't have problems with that because i make sure that as soon as i took all my makeup off i wash my face with a cleanser.
As for it being gentle, it really is gentle. It won't sting your eyes so it's good for those people who wear contact lens.
Both took my eye makeup using just one cotton pad....which is great..

Over all, my experience with Bi-Facil is good. Although its expensive, but i think its worth your money. Since i just need a little amount of the product to take my eye makeup off, i guess the small bottle will last for a couple of months. Though for me, L'oreal is doing its job same with Bi-Facil, so i don't see myself buying the big bottle (for now).

How about you,what do you use as your eye makeup remover?
