A few days ago I reviewed L’Oreal Skin Genesis Wet Cleansing Towelettes with BHA. A few of you gals then offered up your fave makeup removing wipes and cleansers in the comments. Here’s a list featuring your recommendations and why you love ‘em!
1. MAC Wipes
$24.50 for 100 wipes
Super duper. They’re a great cleanser and come in a resealable bag (that actually works) to keep them moist and fresh until you need ‘em.
2. Korres Wipes
$12 for 25 wipes
Sticker trubs. Great wipes, but the package closes with a sticker instead of a Ziplock and doesn’t always form a tight seal. If you’re not careful, the wipes can dry out soon after the package has been opened.
3. EveryDayMinerals Cleansing Wipes
$3.75; I don’t know the package size
Great scent. People seem to really like the mild lavender and grapefruit fragrance. These wipes are all-natural, but aren’t considered among the softest wipes on the market.
4. Garnier Nutritioniste Nutri-Pure Wet Cleansing Towelettes
$6 for 25 wipes
Soft and clean. These are said to be softer than most other moist cleansing towelettes and remove makeup well. They have a fresh scent, don’t leave behind a sticky residue, but the pack tends to dry out if you’re not careful.
5. Olay Daily Facials Express: Sensitive Skin
$6 for 30 wipes
Velvety soft. These wet cleansing cloths contain aloe and vitamin E, making them extremely soft and moisturizing. They great makeup cleansers, too, even removing waterproof mascara with ease.
6. Boots No7 Quick-Thinking 4-in-1 Wipes
$7 for 30 wipes
Handy dandy. With Boots now carried in Target stores nationwide, these are easy to find (and sometimes on sale). They remove makeup well, even mascara, but they can be a little bit drying.
7. L’Oreal Skin Genesis Wet Cleansing Towelettes
$8 for 25 wipes
Acne fighter. These extremely soft wipes have a nice honeysuckle/rose scent and contain BHA (beta hydroxy acid) to help treat mild acne.
8. Comodynes Dermatological Cleansing Towelettes for Acne and Problem Skin
$4 for 20 wipes
Bargain Basement. I’ve never tried ‘em before, but if rumors that Trader Joe’s carries them are true, sign me up. I love Trader Joe’s!
9. MAC Cleanse Off Oil
$21 per bottle
Fan favorite. A gentle, cleanser for oil-based makeup; 100% mineral-oil free, even removes waterproof mascara.
10. Shu Uemura Skin Purifier High Performance Cleansing Oil
$28 per bottle
Super moisture. Similar to MAC’s Cleanse Off Oil but doesn’t smell as good; said to be more moisturizing, though, and ya gotta love Shu.
11. L’Oreal Skin Genesis Pore Minimizing Gel Cleanser
$8 per bottle
Deep cleaner. Also contains BHA, like the Skin Genesis cleansing towelettes, and considered a good cleanser, able to even remove eye makeup.
So tell me… How do you remove your makeup? Do you use a liquid cleanser, a wipe or a combination of both?
