Lancome Bi Facil
Advantages: Works quite well.
I purchased the large version of this item having tried a trial version as part of a free gift I got from Lancome when purchasing some other makeup. Bi-Facial is essentially a makeup remover from the Lancome range. It comes in a clear bottle with a silver top and the liquid is like water in consistency and is a two-tone blue colour.
==Does it work?==
As far as makeup removers go, I would say that this is pretty useful and pretty good. As the consistency is like a "dry-oil", I tend not to use it all over my face and only use it for removing eye makeup which tends to be the most difficult to get off. I use other cleansers and toners to get my face makeup off. You shake this out of the bottle like a vinegar bottle onto some cotton wool. You don't need much at all just a few drops per eye.
I personally have found this very effective at taking eye makeup off - I am quite vigorous with taking eye makeup off (even though you are supposed to be gentle around your eye area) and found that around 95% of the eye makeup is removed with Bi-Facial. If I then go on to have a shower or wash my face, I find some black (panda-eyes-esque) mascara is under the eye or sometimes even makes it onto my fluffy white towels which is not the desired effect.
==Value for money==
Compared to other oil-based eye makeup removers this seems pretty similar in terms of it's 'removing power' - the other two I have used are Botanic's (£2.99 for 200ml) and Avon Perfect Wear (£5 for 50ml) - this costs around £18-£20 for 125ml. It is no more or less effective than the other two. I am not keen on the Botanics version as I'm certain it has given me milia around my eyes which has actually got quite bad. Sadly, AVON have discontinued their version which leaves me with very little options. I don't think the Bi-facial has worsened the milia but I can't say for certain.
Overall it is probably quite an expensive product and based on that I'm not sure if I would buy it again even though I think it is a good product. I have a huge stash of AVON makeup remover to get through, so if I run out of that I would consider this again but until then I probably won't invest again.
This is a good, if expensive product that I would buy again if I had no cheaper options.
Summary: This is a good, if expensive product that I would buy again if I had no cheaper options.
