Review: Lanôme Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover

Hi girls, are you one of those people who have trouble removing MAC’s Liquid Liner? Do you feel that you tug on your lids too much? Well, today I’m reviewing a product that will help to remove your eye makeup much faster. It’s called the Lancôme Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover. The word facil means easy in French (don’t worry, I took French in Junior high school) and that’s what it does. It makes removing eye makeup easier. Its oil based so it can also be used to remove paint pots because in my experiences, paint pots don’t come off easily with just soap and water. I retails for $26 basically anywhere there is a Lancôme store or counter. Keep reading for my review.

Pros: It makes makeup removing 10x easier since its oil based. It breaks down any of the strong agents in long wearing makeup effortlessly. I actually use it on my lips and cheeks too when I wear a lip stain like Benefit’s posie tint. It’s easier to remove MAC‘s liquid liner because it doesn’t come off as easy as you would think. I also use this with my stubborn mascaras. It’s my most favorite product by Lancôme as well as their cleanser (review coming soon).

Cons: Its doesn’t have a pump or anything so you have to dip a cu-tip or a cotton ball in it which isn’t that sanitary. That’s why I stick to MAC wipes when doing makeup on others.

Overall review: I like how its oil based and it makes everything much easier for me. I still remember once when I ran out of it and MAC’s liquid liner wouldn’t come off, I got so frustrated that I got into the shower and poured a lot of baby oil into my hand and rubbed it into my eye and then my eye burned for like 2 hours. Hint: Never use baby oil to remove makeup! This is my holy grail makeup remover and I wouldn’t trade it in for anything.

Would I purchase it again? : Of course, it definitely a bang for your buck.

Rating: 10/10

Packaging: 8.5/10

Is it VICKY approved? : Yes; if you’re a makeup lover and you are in search of a good makeup remover, this should be it!
