Today I wanted to review Lakme’s latest offering – Lakme Absolute Bi-Phased Makeup Remover for you all.
I picked this a couple of weeks ago since my Revlon Makeup Remover got over.
INR 210 for 60 ml.
Aqua, Cyclomethicone, Isohexadecane, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Chloride, Dimethicone, Caprylyl / Capryl Glucoside, Glycerin, Fragrance, D-Panthenol, Disodium EDTA, Dipotassium Hydrogen phosphate, Phenoxyethanol, DMDM Hydantoin, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate.
This is the first ever makeup remover I have seen in a pump dispenser.. not sure if other brands have the same packaging.
The container is made of transparent plastic with a light blue cap. This makes it easy to identify how much product is left.
What the product claims:
The bi-phased makeup remover has a unique formula that gets activated on simply shaking the bottle.
The oil helps in lifting off the makeup while water helps in deeply refreshing the skin. It gently but thoroughly removes all kinds of makeup , even longwearing & water-proof lip, eye & face makeup, leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth.
What is bi-phased?
This is a bi-phasic product – which means the product consists of two different liquids of different density.
In this case, it is a blue oil which stays at the bottom of the container and water in the top layer.
One just needs to shake the container well, so that the liquids get mixed and are ready for use.
The way I see it:
I have been a die-hard fan of Revlon Makeup remover all these days, still picked this one – which is my first purchase from the Lakme Absolute Range.
I am totally in love with this makeup remover, I would admit I got tired with Revlon.
This remover is effective in removing all kinds of makeup – including waterproof & longwearing ones to good extent in just a single swipe!
Stubbon ones need to max. 3-4 swipes to shoo them off… 🙂
After usage, the skin doesn’t feel greasy or oily, as is the case with most makeup removers in the market – particularly Revlon. Neither does it make the skin dry or stretchy.
It does not irritate the skin nor has caused any breakouts so far to me.
It also does not sting the eyes while removing eye makeup – I particularly look for this aspect in a makeup remover, since I use a lot of waterproof eye makeup on a daily basis.
Only when the product or the cotton rubs the eye too hard or gets inside a little does it hurt. Otherwise it is totally safe on the eyes.
I shake the bottle, directly spritz the liquid on the face and then wipe makeup off with a cotton pad. Thus I try to save some makeup removing liquid too 😉
Overall its a great makeup remover in a handy packaging that removes all kind of makeup efficiently, does not sting the eyes nor make the skin oily & comes decently priced.
Below is a pictorial step-by-step on how this makeup removal works:
