I recently ran out of makeup removers, so I went on a mini shopping trip and bought Bífesta Agecare Cleansing Lotion and Lancôme Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover.
Bífesta, formerly known as Cleansing Express, is an extremely popular Japanese-based brand that specializes in makeup removers only. Bífesta is consistently featured in many beauty magazines, and in 2011, cosme.net ranked Bífesta Eye Makeup Remover as no.1 in the makeup remover category.
I'm a big fan of Bífesta because their cleansing lotions are so lovely to use. They're water-based, so your skin feels very fresh afterwards. But best of all, there's no need to rinse or double-cleanse! I'm lazy as it is when it comes to proper skincare , so Bífesta is perfect for those late-night parties where all I want to do is crash on my bed after coming home. I can just whip this out and be done with it!
I picked up Agecare because I'm super anal about preventing wrinkles, but there are others such as Moist (for dry skin), Sebum (for oily skin), and Bright Up (for dull skin). Agecare specifically contains Q10 and soy to improve skin elasticity and hydration.
BUT, while I love Bífesta, it unfortunately doesn't remove all my eye makeup. Because I like to wear thick, waterproof eyeliner and mascara, I need an extra helping hand to get the job done. This is where Lancôme Bi-Facil comes in!
The price is double that of Bifesta since Lancome is a "high-end" brand, but I think it's money worth spending. Bi-Facil leaves no oily residue, and in just one swipe, it removes almost everything. Gel liner, eyeliner, eyeshadow, mascara--whatever else you slap on!
Before returning home two friends won me this absolutely adorable alpaca slingpouch from the arcade. It's so cute! It even has little lashes and a pink pouch of its own.
It's a snug fit, but it can carry my iPhone! I AM EXCITED BY THIS
