More from SheKnows

It’s no secret that Roberts adores Lancôme products, from their foundation to their mascara, and all kinds of other products in between. It seems as if every red carpet breakdown of her makeup looks has at least one or two, if not all, Lancôme products included.

Previously, Roberts told HollywoodLife that her first-ever big makeup purchase from the French beauty brand was their iconic eye makeup remover. As she said, “Bi-Facil eye-makeup remover was my first-ever Lancôme purchase. I walked up to the makeup counter at Richards department store back in the ’80s, took a deep swallow, and bought it.”

So not only is this makeup remover super effective and insanely loved by beauty enthusiasts, but it’s been a staple in Roberts skincare routine since the ’80s. How incredible is that?

Right now, Nordstrom is having a limited time only sale on select Lancôme products where you can save 30% off some of their best-sellers, including the cult-fave makeup remover that Roberts loves so much. We found a way to save even more!

This Lancôme gift set contains not one, but two products that are staples in Roberts’ beauty routine. First up is the Lancôme Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover, which is an award-winning and effective eye makeup remover that not only takes off every drop of dirt and grime, but leaves the skin feeling refreshed and baby soft. As someone who’s tried pretty much every makeup remover out there, I can confidently say this is one of the best there is. And yes, it even takes out stubborn waterproof mascara and eyeliner easily!

In addition to the makeup remover, you also get the Lash Idôle Mascara, which was the one Roberts used while attending the Academy Museum Gala last October. It’s a best-selling mascara that lifts, lengthens, and gives maximum volume to your lashes. Plus, like the makeup remover, it’s gentle enough for those with sensitive eyes.

Typically, the makeup remover alone will cost you $38 for the 4.2-oz size. However, this incredible holiday set costs $34 right now. That price includes the 4.2-ounce makeup remover, a full-size mascara, and a full-size eyelash primer. If you purchase each individually, you’d be spending nearly $90. To break it down even further, $34 divided by three products would equal about $11 per product. So, you’d be scoring a savings of over 60% off! Needless to say, we highly recommend snapping up this deal while you still can.

Need more convincing? If you’ve been on the internet for the past few years, then you know how important it is to double cleanse your skin, since every TikTok dermatologist has been talking about it! With Lancôme’s makeup remover, you don’t have to sacrifice one or the other because it has an oil base for lifting the eye makeup and water to fully cleanse.

Made with a lipid concentrate to instantly remove even stubborn waterproof makeup, it’s no wonder this has been considered the number one makeup remover in the U.S.

Plus, along with Roberts loving Lancôme and its products, it’s also approved by stars and royals alike, like Kylie Jenner, Lupita Nyong’o, Kate Middleton, the late Princess Diana, and Marisa Tomei, to name a few.

Per the brand, applying this Lancome product is super easy! Before each use, shake the bottle and go to saturate a cotton round before wiping it all over your eyes to remove the makeup.

Shoppers also can’t get enough of this remover, so much so that they keep coming back to buy more for years at a time. One Nordstrom said this Lancome makeup remover is “almost magical,” saying, “This has long been my favorite eye makeup remover- and I can wear a LOT of eye makeup… I also like the design of the bottle’s dispenser- it prevents one from quickly pouring out too much of the precious stuff and wasting it. Love it, love it, love it.”

Another shopper added the same sentiment, also calling it “magical,” adding, “This takes anything off. Seriously. And it’s so gentle on my skin!”
