Fasio Point Make-up Remover with white lily extract review

Fasio Point Make-up remover is in a 100ml, silver capped blue bottle. It's a 'point' makeup remover which in the terminology of Japanese brands means point makeup (as opposed to base makeup like foundations), which generally means eyes and lip makeup.

Fasio is a drugstore brand, this probably retails for below 10USD. Very cheap, very effective.

Comes in a pour out cap:

The instruction says apply the remover on a cotton swab or cotton pad, then gently press against the eye, wait a few seconds, then gently wipe off your eye makeup.

Here's what it looks like on the cotton, it's a cloudy thickish liquid consistency (without being a gel).

Here's my test swatch of MAC black swan liner on top, and Shu uemura shimmer eyeliner in black on the bottom. Both have shimmers so we can test to see how Fasio performs with eyeliners which tend to leave shimmer particles behind when removing your eye makeup:

Wiped over skin without too much effort:

Here- clean skin afterwards. I didn't recleanse with soap cleanser or anything. Just rinsed with water and pat dry.

As with most eye makeup removers, it's best to put enough on the cotton pad (but without being dripping wet otherwise the makeup remover gets into your eye easily), the trick is to let the remover work its magic by being pressed against the eye to allow it to melt away the eyemakeup first. Then swipe.

If you apply, swipe straightaway, you will have to go back and reswipe a few times to get everything off, which is always bad when you have to tug the delicate skin around the eye.

Overall 5/5. I'm on my 3rd bottle over the last 3 or 4 years. I think lancome Bifacil is better (but cost a few times more than this obviously. However this works wonders with most Japanese mascara (can be quite stubborn to remove) and general eyeliner or makeup.

I always double cleanse with soup to get any last residue off.

This can make your eye a little bit cloudy if the liquid gets in, but generally I've never found it to irritate my eyes.
