Sleeping in your makeup is not advised, not ever recommended. It is the last thing on your mind after a long day/night. What comes after that? Clogged pores, blackheads, dull skin and breakouts. I do not want to deal with breakouts. That’s where today’s review of Lancome Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover comes into picture.
According to Sephora’s website Lancome Bi-Facil Eye Makeup remover is “An award-winning makeup remover that effectively cleanses away eye makeup while being gentle enough for sensitive skin and contact-lens wearers. This no-rinse, gentle eye-makeup remover cleanses and nourishes lashes without tugging. The formula is suitable for sensitive skin and eyes.”
The packaging is really simple. The makeup remover comes in a light blue plastic bottle with a white child proof lid.
This Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover is a liquid and oil formula that has to be mixed together to activate it.
How to use
First, before each use, shake the bottle to activate the makeup-removing formula and mix the two phases. Second, soak a cotton pad with the liquid and hold over closed eyes to moisten makeup. Third use gentle swiping motion to remove makeup. After this step, I always take other makeup off by using a cleanser.
Lancome Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover takes care of all my eye makeup, even waterproof mascara, without any tugging. Compared to a few other makeup removers, this did not cause any rash, eczema on my sensitive eyelids. It is oily looking, however it does not feel greasy.
This rinses clean and there is no stinging, burning sensation while using it.
I primarily use this as an eye makeup remover. This is the best makeup remover for waterproof mascara. Since this is only an eye makeup remover, I need to wash my face with my regular cleanser after using this product, to remove makeup from other areas. These steps work well for me as I do not wear heavy makeup on a daily basis.
Inspite of Sephora saying this is a no-rinse formula, I think it’s best to use a gentle cleanser after this , just to make sure your face is really clean without any traces of makeup.
