I’ve been on a serious Boots kick lately that really kicked into high gear when I gave their Expert Sensitive Cleansing & Toning Wipes a try.
Target now carries at least, like, six different varieties of Boots makeup wipes… And I’m on a mission to test them all!
Last week I started using their biodegradable Quick Fix Cleansing Wipes, which Boots packed with botanicals like mallow to sooth and calm the skin.
First, the good stuff: I just love the way they smell and feel; the light, soothing scent reminds me of baby powder. Super soft, they don’t cause my skin to tighten up after using them, and they don’t leave a greasy residue, either.
When it comes to removing most types of makeup, they get the job done, making relatively quick work of lipsticks, blushes, eyeshadows, liners and full-coverage foundations, and they do so without requiring a lot of elbow grease to use.
That said, I think they work a little slower than Boots Expert Sensitive wipes do, but they smell and feel so pleasant that I really don’t mind.
As for how they fare against mascaras and long-wearing gel liners? That’s a less awesome story. Quick Fix struggles to remove even regular mascaras (much less waterproof varieties), forcing me to use a separate eye makeup remover when I’m done (a step I can skip when I use the Expert Sensitive wipes).
Now, are they worth $7? Given the way they feel, the baby powder fragrance and the fact that they’re biodegradable, I think so. At least they’re probably worth a try.
I think the Expert Sensitive wipes have them beat in a few important ways, but if you don’t mind having to use a separate eye makeup remover, they might be your cup o’ tea. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B
