I picked up the new Sephora Extra-Gentle Bi-Phase Makeup Remover For Eyes & Lips since I’m a fond fan of the original Bi-Phase Makeup Remover they do (at least I was until the formula changed).
I’ve used it exactly once and I hate it. I rarely return anything but this is going back ASAP.
Sephora Extra-Gentle Bi-Phase Makeup Remover For Eyes & Lips us a bi-phase milky lotion created with cottonseed oil to gently remove makeup while hydrating eyes. As I said above I use to be a fond fan of the original formula but they somehow changed it and it started burning a good deal so I gave up on it.
Fast forward to a mere short few days ago and they released this “Extra Gentle” version and I was excited to give it another whirl. There’s no doubt that this removes eye makeup easily. I had no problems removing my eyeshadow, waterproof mascara, and eyeliner quite easily.
This does have a rose-like fragrance which didn’t bother me in the least but I mostly dislike the consistency of the formula as it feels quite greasy/oily on my lids and also left me with very, very cloudy vision. It kind of reminded me of the old Almay Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads. God, how I hated those. I could probably deal with the greasiness and even the cloudiness since they removed makeup so well but sadly, the formula made my eyes sting terribly. So much for extra gentle!
Sephora Extra-Gentle Bi-Phase Makeup Remover For Eyes & Lips wasn’t for me. This one is going back to Sephora!
