Review | Bifesta Eye Makeup Remover

Tuesday, 7 January 2020

Unlike cleansing waters, milks, creams, balms and even oils, I hardly venture into trying different eye makeup removers because I don't use them as frequent as I need to; I'd rather use a single product to remove all of my makeup that I have been wearing throughout the day at one go when I shower.

However, there are times when I don't want to get into the shower (where I line all my oil-based cleansers on my bathroom shelf) right away but desperately want to at least remove my waterproof eye makeup. This is where having a separate eye makeup remover can actually be helpful. Before I go in-depth into this product, let's get into some basic information first.

What you need to know! It's a gentle yet powerful water-based eye makeup remover.
  • For eyes and lips
    • Dual effect of water layers containing lotion-based cleansing ingredients and oil-based emollient layers effectively lift and remove waterproof mascara and eyeliner effortlessly without rubbing and tugging.
  • Contains vitamin B and E derivatives for added skin nutrients 
    • Contains 2 types of moisturising ingredients which moisturize and is gentle to your delicate eye areas and eyelashes.
  • Colourant-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free, hypoallergenic formulation
  • Skin patch and allergy tested.
  • Contains Alkanediol (Pentylene Glycol) as moisturising agent.
How to Use:
  1. Shake well before use
  2. Dispense some suitable amount of product onto cotton pad and wipe gently. Rubbing is not required as product works by lifting makeup rather than melting it away.
  3. To remove stubborn mascara, hold cotton pad against eye for awhile before gently wiping off
  4. Remove contact lenses before use.
Capacity: 145ml - about 4 months of daily use with cotton pads.

Ingredients list: Water, Mineral Oil, Cyclopentasiloxane, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Alcohol, PEG-400, PCA Ethyl Cocoyl Arginate, Disodium EDTA, Pentylene Glycol, Panthenol, Tocopheryl Acetate, PEG-6 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hyaluronate



Basically, the product comes with a plastic cover to seal the whole product and there are only Japanese product descriptions printed on the actual bottle. The Manufacturing Date is printed at the bottom of the bottle itself and the format is MFGDDMMYY (Day-Month-Year).


The product doesn't come with a pump or anything; just regular screw cap with a simple stopper at the neck of the bottle.

As you  can see, the product is a dual-phase makeup remover so it is imperative for you to shake the bottle to mix the oil and water parts of the product so you can remove all kinds of makeup you have on.


I'm going to attempt to remove some waterproof makeup products that I have and here are some that I've been obsessing a lot lately; Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Mascara, NYX Lingerie Eye Tint, Shu Uemura Matte Supreme Matte and Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek and Lip Stain as I'm all about long-wearing makeup these days.

I have swatched all the products at the back of my hand to show you how well this eye and lip makeup remover work!


I've dispensed some of the product directly onto the textured cotton pad, usually 3 to 4 drops and just let it sit on the products (on my eyelids) for a good 10 seconds.

Then, slowly wipe the pad away from the eyelid. As this makeup remover is quite watery, be careful not to let the product go into your eyes.


As you can see in the above photo, the only makeup item that were not completely removed are the eye, cheek and lip tints with their colours still visible on skin but as for the rest of the makeup, not even the slightest hint can be seen so I do think this oil cleanser does its job quite well. I bet most of you know that the products that aren't removed are quite known for their long-lastingness which is why I would rather to simply use cleansing oils to remove them altogether.

Overall, I give this product 4/5. I still do like this eye and lip makeup remover even after trying several other removers mostly from Korean brands as this product basically removes all traces of other eye makeup that I have.

When I'm not using base makeup, there is no need to use cleansing oil but I still need to remove waterproof eye makeup. For that I will use cleansing wipes or sheets to remove my sunscreen for the day and pour several drops of this remover onto the sheet and simply wipe away my mascara, eyeliner, and even brow mousse.

This makeup remover does not irritate, make my eyes blur or anything. Also I found that a little goes a long way with this product making it considerably affordable with the amount of product I get. I've recently finished my first bottle and now I'm on my second one with the newer packaging design.

You might have noticed that this product (as with most Japanese skincare products available in drugstores) contains mineral oil.  This may deter some from getting it but I personally don't have any issues with that ingredient as I'm actually more concerned with fragrance that may potentially irritate the skin.

I guess that's all from me and I hope this review helps you in some way but do let me know if you have any thought by leaving comments down below. Annyeong~

Blogger Mail | AXIS-Y Climate-based Skincare

Saturday, 4 January 2020

I first saw this brand when it was featured on @faafirds as she was visiting a Beauty Expo few months ago and I was intrigued by the brand's concept of climate-based skincare products so I'm so glad to receive these considerably new products 2 weeks ago which you probably saw my Instagram Stories anyway. 

As you can see above, the brand sent me 3 products in total; exfoliating toner, barrier-repairing treatment product and to top these all off, a duo-moisturiser. Now that I'm done testing these on my equally-sensitive neck area for a week, I'm going to incorporate them into my daily skincare routines except for the BHA-containing exfoliating toner; 2 to 3 times a week maximum. I'm looking forward to try the ampoule mostly because I'm in the middle of restoring my skin barrier and I have been indulging myself in Centella Asiatica-based serums and ampoules so this is  simply timely to my skin condition. So far, I have only tried a duo sleeping mask so hopefully the moisturiser works well in sealing all of skincare products.

I guess that's all for now and I'll be seeing you guys on my next post. Annyeong~

I know it's weird to post Best Nine of 2019 here in my blog but hey! I just want to take this time to brag to the lot of you here, showing off my posts with the most engagement i.e. Likes and Comments.... no, I don't. Not really. Why? Let me just break it down for you by telling the stories behind each and every of the post above, quickly I promise. 

I'm gonna go by going from the bottom right to the left towards the top simply because I want to. 
  1. My first bathroom #shelfie ever! | I have to admit, I needed to clean out so many unrelated things on that very shelf right before lining my opened makeup removers, facial cleansers and at the bottom shelf, my shower creams, shampoos and whatnot. Took me about an hour before I can actually take a decent photo but I'll say this, Sunday afternoon that's well-spent.
  2. My lineup of products that by far is the most solid routine for sensitive skin days. | In my days as beauty blogger, I need to try and test many products with some goes into my routine permanently (till I actually finished them), some give me breakouts that I usually giveaway to people who want to take the risk, some doesn't do much to my skin that I usually just finish by using on my arms and legs while some products that thoroughly help my skin in terms of repairing my damaged skin barrier, smoothing out the dead flaky skin which deserves to be repurchased till the day I die or as long as I need it to. More than half of the products lined up above included in the last category.
  3. Althea launched their budget-friendly face masks | let's just be honest. I was an Althea Angel i.e. ambassador and I love sheet masks. Couldn't be happier while hoarding these!
  4. the beginning of my obsession with layering serums in my skincare routine | Started with the two and now I can even layer up to 4 serums whenever I have extra time or how sleep-deprived I actually am before beginning my night skincare routine.
  5. Sponsored post for a local brand | All I'm saying the product is merely average but for price point and choice of colours for Malaysian skin tone, okay la.
  6. #pinkwednesday and I can't feel more girlier than that post | I don't own a lot of products in pink bottles but when I gathered most that I have in a single pic like that, I feel cute. haha indulge me!
  7. Beauty fridge. | Oh dear. so I bought this beauty fridge simply because I want to get back to using sheet mask on daily basis but then I ended up filling it with my toners and toners and more toners. haha i didn't think much of how this going to affect my whole engagement but yeah. My followers seems to like this beauty trend.
  8. Krave Beauty family portrait | I'd say I had the worst FOMO fever when Krave release their moisturiser! I bought it the second it's launched on their Global site and dipped my hands (nope, spatula!) into it the second it arrived at my door.
  9. My biggest collaboration, the first one through a PR company | OMG, I still can't believe Clarins picked me to receive their best-selling serum. I love it so much! I'm trying my best to finish my other serums so I can get back to using this, really. Also, dual-phase serum is mind-blowing to me as it's perfect for my dehydrated skin.

Honestly, this may come as a surprise to you but the above Best Nine posts are quite effortless compared to my other posts that I worked on harder in terms of shooting and creating the contents for the photos. I'm a bit disappointed actually but it's alright because this is just social media. 

I guess that's all from me. I'll see you guys on my next post. Annyeong~
