You know that old saying, “Third time’s the charm”? It came to mind when I started putting Physicians Formula Organic Wear Makeup Remover Towelettes ($7) to the test.
Like the lotion and eye makeup remover pads I tried, these towelettes look *faboo* on paper, with excellent bona fides. Bio-degradable, with a soothing lavendar scent, and manufactured without the use of funky chemicals or animal testing — yay, right? They look good both for peeps AND the planet.
So, do they hit it out of the park?
Answer: almost. They certainly hit it far. I don’t think they’re as efficient as Soap & Glory’s Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths (my current drugstore wipe fave!), but two wipes and 3-5 minutes of rubbing removes a full face of foundation, concealer, primer, powder and blush. Pretty good.
Just for kicks, I tried using them to remove my eye makeup, and I’ll be damned if they didn’t work a little better than the dedicated Organic Wear Eye Makeup Remover Pads, removing primer, eyeshadow and liner (but not mascara).
How do you feel about Josie Maran’s Bear Naked Wipes? I ask because I think they’re another good drugstore alternative.
Like the rest of the Physician’s Formula Organic Wear removers, the wipes might be best suited for girls (and boys!) who wear less of the long-wearing stuff. If that describes you, you’re golden. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B
A stone’s throw away from Friday!
Anyone else amazed by how fast this week has flown by? I can’t believe it’s almost Friday… I’m not complaining, of course.
On Tabs’ Thursday to-do list: nap, nap and nap some more
How’s your afternoon coming along? I just got back from a meeting in the city, and now I’m heading by my favorite MAC counter to check out the rest of the Riveting collection (lands on counters today).
I hope you’ve been having a good one!
