Among the products I always come back to is the LANCOME BI-FACIL two-phase oil eye make-up remover. Lancome is one of the few brands whose preparative cosmetics I buy. In perfumeries, I mostly buy only decorative cosmetics, and preparative ones usually in pharmacies.
This oil remover instantly removes makeup from the eyes, even waterproof. It is intended for sensitive eyes and those who wear lenses because it does not cause any irritation. Since I have sensitive eyes and also wear contact lenses, I can attest that it is safe and gentle to use. It does not contain alcohol.
I use it as the first step of cleansing my facial skin if I have a lot of mascara or other makeup on my eyes. First, I use it to remove make-up from the area around the eyes, and then I continue with the full-face oil cleanser and/or cleansing gel. The oil phase dissolves make-up, and the aqueous phase with the help of emollients hydrates and refreshes the skin around the eyes. Shake well before use to combine the two phases.
This is certainly not a necessary product because, with a cleansing gel, oil, micellar solution, depending on what you use, you can effectively remove makeup residue from the eyes. However, I don’t like to clean mascara and other makeup at the same time as facial skin, but I prefer separate cleansing.

BI-FACIAL contains perfume, paint, and silicones, but since it washes out, I somehow ignore those facts. When it comes to leave on products I try not to use those that contain any of it.
Oil is as expensive as all Lancome products, and packaging is plastic and simple.
