Review: Bourjois Express Eye Makeup Remover

Hello my lovely readers, I hope you are having a great sunny day and it is getting warmer where you are. If not, then I will be your sun for now. A long while ago {or so it seems}, I went to get a few things at the store and ended up getting this as a gift with my purchase. I have been using it everyday since then and thought it was finally time to tell you what I think about it.

The packaging is very simple and well it should be; it is just makeup remover. I really like the fact that it has the circle on the top as this always helps me open it up fast. I cannot stand having to spend a long time each night opening a bottle. The price is about € 12 which is quite a lot in my opinion since we have other options, so glad I got it for free.

The product itself comes in 2 phases. Firstly, the oil phase which is the blue part on top. This helps to remove all the makeup including waterproof makeup. Secondly, the water phase which leaves the skin feeling fresh. Basically this is where this little bottle and I have a disagreement. I have oily skin which makes cleaning off my makeup with oil feel absolutely weird {in my honest opinion}. Therefore what I do is flip the bottle quickly in order to get the 2nd phase and that's what I use every night. Of course a little bit of oil may still be on the cleansing pad but not as much anyway. 

It cleans off all my makeup and my skin does feel fresh after it. Therefore I have nothing against the product, it's just that personally I would have preferred to just have the 2nd phase {But that's just me}. I haven't had any breakouts because of this product and that feels great.

So for the question on if I would repurchase or not, I would most likely say no and look for something which doesn't have an oil phase.

Quick Summary:
Likes: The cover, removes waterproof makeup
Dislikes: Oil phase
Verdict: No
