My Favorite Makeup Removers - Reviews

Ok I'm going to tell you about my favorite makeup removers!
Clinique and Bi-Facil are mainly for eye makeup removal but I feel that DHC Deep Cleansing Oil works well for all makeup. I only have the trial-sizes for the Clinique and Bi-Facil that I got from purchases from Saks Fifth Ave. My mother and grandmother receive promotion gifts all the time so I usually get the samples! :) The DHC oil is available for purchase in the small size and large size. The small size in the picture is $12.50 (2.3 fl oz) and large is $25.00 (25 fl oz).
I'll try to post a second part to this review with test pictures to see if they REALLY work!
Time to start the reviews! ^_^

Clinique Rinse-Off Eye Makeup Solvent
I usually use this with a cotton pad and let it sit on my eye for about five seconds then swipe. It's a non-oily formula and feels refreshingly cool. It doesn't leave any oily residue. I like this remover because I can dip q-tips inside the bottle to remove any leftover makeup in hard to reach places or touch up on a mistake. Sometimes I use this to clean mascara left on my eyelash curler! Haha :)

Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover
This is a double liquid makeup remover, half oil cleanser and half water cleanser. A lot of bloggers really like this remover, especially Fuzkittie. This makeup remover is easy to use! I just shake it, put it on a cotton pad and makeup glides away in two sweeps. I like the oil based removers but depending on the company, they can feel slimy and overly oily. I like Bi-Facil because it's a double formula remover and doesn't feel too oily.

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil
I LOVE THIS STUFF! If I am really lazy and don't use my eye makeup cleansers I just substitute this for it. One pump is enough for me to massage onto my whole face. This cleansing oil is olive oil based and doesn't dry out my face at all. Basically you massage it into your dry skin, then pat some water on and massage again, then rinse off. When you rinse it off, you can see the water becoming milky and the oil comes off without difficulty. It leaves my skin soft and smooth without any drying effects!

Some negatives:
Clinique - Sometimes doesn't remove all makeup; that's why I use a qtip for hard to reach areas. It's a little bit drying but not too much. Overall it's a great remover for people who are afraid of oil-based removers.
Bi-Facil - Haha doesn't have to do with the actual remover but the cap is difficult to remove... It's the type that's on medicine bottles; the push and turn type. You know the one that's supposed to keep kids from opening bottles? I'm not sure why they put this type of cap on this product.
DHC Oil - The oil smells sort of weird, like cooking olive oil but I don't really care too much. As long as it works, I'm fine with it!

Ok I will post pictures next time to show you how well these removers work!
