Bourjois - my favourite eye makeup remover

Know what I find super annoying? Eye makeup that leaves me with horrible panda eyes even though I was absolutely sure that I’d washed off all traces of it the night before. Which, incidentally, is why I don’t wear waterproof mascara; I have a hard enough time as it is removing the regular kind :)

In the past the only eye makeup remover I ever used was Bi-facil by Lancome but at around £19 for 125mls I had been on the lookout for something cheaper that works just as well.
After buying and trying many many different products I’ve finally found one that I absolutely love
This was an impulse purchse cos I happened to be picking up some Bourjois mascara and lipgloss and I spotted this for the bargain price of £4.99. The reason it grabbed my attention is that it actually looks just like the Bi-facil one; a two-phase formula that combines oil and water when it’s shaken up

I bought this at the start of December and have been using it daily since then yet there’s only about a centimetre out of the bottle. You only need the smallest amount on a cotton pad or ball and it quickly and gently removes all makeup. Even when I’ve gone a bit over the top with a new gel liner, mascara and/or kohl liner this removes everything soooo easily and doesn’t leave a horrible residue

This will last me ages but I’ll definitely be repurchasing this when I’ve run out!

I love this too and reccomended it to a fellow blogger, who bought it and gave me feedback today that she loves it too..
It's basically the same as Lancome but SO much cheaper!

I'm in love with Bourjois products, but I've never seen that sold? :/ Sounds amazing though!

I couldn't have seen this post at a better time! I'm almost out of my Chanel eye makeup remover very similar, even a little better than the Lancome Bi-Facil) and have been looking for a cheaper, yet still really good replacement for it. I just don't feel like paying $32 CAD for a bottle that will last me just over a month.

They sell Bourgois products at a pharmacy near my house, and so I will give it a try!

Thank you for the review, it was really helpful!
