Recently I was sent an eye makeup remover to try. Its called Bi-Phase.
As soon as I got it I thought about how it reminded me of the world famous Bi-Fical Eye Makeup Remover from Lancome.
This is what Nurture have to say about it:
Fragrance-free, ophthalmologist-tested and oh-so gentle, the lotion quickly whisks away stubborn mascara, water-proof eyeliner and long-lasting eyeshadows to leave skin soft and clean.
Shake the bottle to activate the two-phase formula and the oil-based cleanser will gently dissolve make-up whilst the aqueous phase soothes and moisturises the delicate skin around the eye area. The non-greasy formula makes it suitable for contact lens wearers and won’t leave the skin feeling oily.
A special North American blue algae extract, rich in B-vitamins and amino acids helps to strengthen and protect the delicate skin. Panthenol improves the long-term hydration levels of the skin. Lashes are conditioned. The ‘no-sting’ formula doesn’t leave eyes red or irritated and even sensitive skin is left feeling moisturised and soothed.
It is available from the Nurture website and its £6.95 for 150ml
In the same way as the Lancome, this must be shaken really well to ensure that the two elements are mixed up really well. As you can see from the photo (I was sent a plain press sample) above the product is clear and blue. In another pic below you can see them mixed up after I have shaken up the bottle before use.
You apply this with a cotton pad to take off all kinds of eye makeup. It claims to be fragrance free, but I picked up a scent – which is okay, its not particularly nice but its certainly not offensive or off putting, and its not strong at all.
I love to wear eye liner, eye shadow and I am massive mascara addict, so I have really been putting this to the test!
First thing to say is that it doesn’t not sting my eyes, which is really great. Of course no one means to get eye makeup remover in their eye but when it happens its not normally a nice experience!
This does quite a good job of removing most of my makeup, except for the notoriously stubborn BeneFit They’re Real mascara, which is so hard to remove. Apart from that, Bi-Phase shifts everything without too much hassle.
Once my makeup is removed Bi-Phase doesn’t leave my eye area feeling too dry or irritated. It also doesn’t leave an oily residue which I personally hate when it comes to eye makeup removers. Its really quite pleasant to use.
I think this is a pretty good buy for someone looking for an affordable alternative to Lancome. It might not be as good but considering this is £6.95 and Lancome is £21, Bi-Phase is a great buy for the price!
