My Opinion:

I think everyone that has been following my blog knows by now that I'm not too fussy about my eye makeup remover, because I don't wear much eye makeup and I hardly wear water proof stuffs around my eyes.

I only use eye makeup remover to remove my undereye concealer and I have 3 basic requirements, 1. does not sting my eyes, 2. does not cause millia, 3. removes my concealer, and this products fulfills all my requirements.

I've read alot of people comparing this product with Lancome Bi-Facil and claiming that they are both made by the same company, and since I do have a sample size of this product with me I though I might as well do a comparison.

Lancomes Bi-Facil ingredients list:
Aqua, Cyclopentasiloxane, Isohexadecane, Decyl Glucoside, Sodium Chloride, Polyaminopropyl Biguanide, Dipotassium Phosphate Copper Sulfate, Disodium EDTA, Potassium Phosphate, Hexylene Glycol, Parfum, CI 161565.

The first 3 ingredients are identical, and for the rest of the ingredients they are almost the same only in a different order.

Honestly I really didn't notice much of a difference between these 2 products, so personally I would call it a good dupe.
