Editor's Rating & Review
Finding a makeup remover that fully strips off mascara, even the waterproof kind, without leaving your eye area red or eyesight blurry is a chore. This half-oil, half-water-looking one does take it <i>all</i> off without irritation if you swipe gently, but it's a bit greasy. I've yet to discover a totally slick-free remover that really works (Nivea Visage comes close), and if waking up with raccoon eyes is the trade off, I'll settle for the slightly oily residue.
Lancome Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover Reviews
A Tender, Effective Makeup RemoverAnd yet another story from my days of modeling school, which I enjoyed immensely. We learned to apply makeup--lots of it for the camera (sometimes I feared I'd near a trowel to rid myself of it!). We did the catwalk and had our photos taken, sometimes blending more than seven shades of eye shadow and topping it with liner and professional mascara. Removal always began with a cleansing cream, applying lavishly and then gently massaging into skin and around eyes, paying careful attention to take off heavy eye makeup without pulling or tugging in any way. We used wash cloths, working until every bit of color disappeared. Until then, I would simply have reached for a bar of soap or foaming cleanser, but I learned from classes that it sometimes TAKES OIL TO REMOVE OIL. Lipids bond together and unwanted products are completely eradicated (thus, the huge success of olive oil as a purifier). Lancome, originally built as a house for skin care, understands this. Their "Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover" is pricey at about $28.00, but definitely worth it in the long run. Bi-Facil is an award-winning formula that is half-emollient. It's a good thing. Watch even the longest-lasting waterproof mascara disappear with ease and no tears or harsh, irritating ingredients to sting you. Be careful around eyes; eyelashes do not always grow back and skin is as delicate as tissue paper here. The more tenderly you remove eye makeup, the better your eyes will look in the future (read that again, please). A water-based part of Bi-Facil refreshes eyes and conditions skin with no greasy residue. Be sure to shake the solution well before using and dab on liberally with cotton pads. I love it to rid my skin of foundation, blush, and lipstick as well. Even if your skin is oily, have no fear. It will not cause blemishes (they come because of clogged pores, dead skin, and more). I generally follow with a mild cleanser and then a serum and/or moisturizer. It is even effective for those with sensitive eyes. Don't forget that Lancome has wonderful bonus gifts with purchase, so it's best to buy this during those times! — 2 months, 3 weeks agoGigiSD | 603 reviews
Wonderful Eye Makeup RemoverWhether you have on a smokey eye for a night out or you just have on a bit of mascara, this bi-facil double action eye makeup remover does wonders in removing all traces of makeup from your eyes. This product is meant for all skin types, removes waterproof makeup, and is gentle enough for sensitive eyes. It has two layers, and that's why it recommends you to shake well so that it mixes the solution. Then take a cotton pad and dab some solution onto to help clean any type of eye makeup off. I even use it to remove blush and lipstick sometimes. The only downside is it does leave your eyes feeling oily, but just wash your face afterwards and you'll be fine. Of course, this is also a bit on the pricey side, but for a job well done, it's definitely worth it! — 1 year, 11 months agoMissXu | 101 reviews
Good but expensive!I received this as part of a GWP, and I like this eye makeup remover a lot. It has nice packaging, does a decent job of removing eye makeup, isn't too greasy, and doesn't burn my eyes. However, it's a little spendy, and Neutrogena's Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover works just as well for me but for much less $$! Same with Clinique's. — 4 years, 1 month agoLipglossandSpandex | 520 reviews
