Advantages: Quickly and easily removes mascara and eyshadows
Disadvantages: Can leave an oily layer behind
This product has just won an Instyle magazine award for 'Best Beauty Buy' but here is why it's my winner.
One of my ultimate goals in life is to find a range of beauty and bath products which are my 'staples'. The things which I can't live withoutand buy again when I run out. Sadly, I am still searching for most of my signature products but I am happy to report- for eyemake up removal I have found my match. :)
I first tried this when I bought some makeup at a Lancome counter in Boots during one of their 'gift' periods. The solution in Bi-Facil is a two phase liquid with a oily phase and a watery phase, which you need to give a good shake to mix it together before you use it. You only need a few drops on a cotton wool pad to thoroughly clean away all eyeshadow and mascara. There is no stinging, and it does not dry out the skin around the eyes. I guess this is down to the oily phase in the solution, as it does leave behind a slight oily layer. I don't find this a problem as I generally only use it at the very end of the night before bed and it seems to absorb well overnight. When I do use it during the day, I tend to have a quick swipe over the area with a toner afterwards to remove the oily layer.
This eye makeup remover is currently around £19.50 for 125ml, and I find that it last quite a good long time.
Summary: My no1 eyemake up remover
