Soap and Glory Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths: Watch Out, Waterproof!

Published in: Drugstore Beauty Finds, Product Reviews, Skin Care


Greetings and good morning, girls. πŸ™‚ How did you sleep? Following yesterday’s makeup look, I wanted to touch on makeup removal, particularly Soap & Glory’s Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths ($7 for a pack of 25).


To find out how these oversized, velvet-soft wipes fare against long-wearing and waterproof makeup like MAC Fluidline, Stila Lash Visor Mascara and Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter liner, I put ’em to the test.

What about the waterline?

Most makeup wipes can handle regular-wear products, but many struggle when it comes to removing waterproof. That, and some take too much effort (read: rubbing) to use along my delicate waterline.

Soap & Glory says they created Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths to help women multitask, with the wipes cleansing, toning, removing makeup and exfoliating in one fell swoop.

How’d they do?

Answer: I think they did very well. πŸ™‚

These wipes work overtime! You know how after you use some wipes you feel like you have to rinse? Like they’ve left a residue? I don’t feel that way after using Off Your Face.

After wiping down with one of these (usually while I’m watching bad reality TV), my face and neck feel squeaky clean and residue-free — soft, but not tight — more like I’ve just finished using a liquid makeup remover and cleanser than a cloth.


What else I like…

  1. The fresh scent (kinda minty floral)
  2. The thoughtful flip-top cap (keeps the wipes from drying out once the package has been opened)
  3. The uber-affordable price

If only they came in bulk!

Other than my desire to see these sold in packs of 1,000 at Tar-ghay, I think these wipes are effin’ rockstars. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+

    Have you tried the CVS house brand of anti-aging wipes? They’re about $5 for 36 and work really well.

  3. Tavia says:

    They sounds great to me. I don’t use waterproof products but hey from time to time I like to have a dramatic makeup so I think it would be a good time to test these ones. Also they might be perfect to take them with me in a vacation πŸ™‚

    I love using wipes, I even tried baby wipes – but don’t do it! They are definitely not as moist. Can’t wait to check these out for myself.

  5. Ashley says:

    I don’t think I can get my hands on these cleansing cloths until March 2010! This is one of the few reasons why I hate living in Canada but… atleast we have Poutines! Maybe I’ll just order them online if I’m desperate enough πŸ™

  6. Marce says:

    These seem to rock the world…I’ve only used Ponds and Johnsons before, the later working pretty well. Even MAC’s wipes aren’t good for waterproof makeup! But then again, when I wash my face, I wash it really well no matter what time it is…I don’t really use wipes, unless I’m on vay-cay at the beach, then they come in handy! πŸ˜€

      Hi Marce,

      Oh, I LOVE bringing wipes to the beach. One thing I like to do: put a few in a plastic baggie and throw it in the cooler. It keeps the wipes cool, so when I clean up at the end of the day it feels sooo good against my skin!

    The packaging is so cute! I have been using MAC wipes and this Japanese brand from a $2 Japanese store, but I would definitely try Soap and Glory when I visit the states.

  8. Trude says:

    Very cool! I’ve been looking for a new brand of wipes, since all the others I’ve tried seem to dry out/irritate my sensitive skin, so I’ll have to give these a shot! πŸ™‚

  9. DoDe says:

    Thanks for the review Karen! I might try these. Love the retro packaging. But honestly I love my Kirkland brand makeup wipes from Costco. They are like $12 for 150.

  10. Rebecca says:

    These sound awesome! I’m always on the lookout for a good waterproof makeup remover, especially come winter/spring, when it gets snowy/rainy. And why doesn’t everything have packaging this cute? I wouldn’t mind buying anything if it looked like this!

    If only I could truly introduce you to the Poutine. If you’re a gravy & fries kinda gal, you are sure to love it! A real poutine consists of fries with the potato skin, cheese curds ontop & AMAZING gravy all over. You could try making it at home but it will never be as good as the food joints that are known for this infamous snack food πŸ™‚ Great, now I crave me a poutine!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ashley,

      I am indeed a gravy and fries girl! I love all things involving fried potatoes, ha ha ha!

      I wonder if I can find one here in the Bay Area… now the hunt begins! πŸ™‚

  12. Megan **** says:

    I’m gonna buy these a little later today & give em a try! I’m so excited because I’ve yet to come across a cleansing cloth that has removed my makeup without drying out my skin. Thank you for this great review! πŸ™‚ The A+ grade seals the deal for me! I’ve gotta try them now!

  13. heather says:

    So would you say that these are the best cleansing wipes you have tried?

  14. Livia says:

    Hi Karen, I’m thinking of buying the makeup wipes from MAC since they’re amazing when I remove swatches at the store, but these are much cheaper. How would you compare these two?..

  15. T says:

    The packaging is really cute! I like to use Costco brand (Kirkland LOL) baby wipes to quickly remove makeup.

    What bad reality tv show did you watch? Do you watch Flipping Out? I love that show!

    • Karen says:

      Hi T,

      I am ashamed to admit I like the teeny boppery ones on MTV. Right now I’m into The City and Real World/Road Rules: The Ruins. When I watch them I swear my brain melts, ha ha!

      Is Flipping Out on HGTV?

  16. Livia says:

    Thank you Karen! You’ve saved me £££’s! xx

    I only once visit the US every couple of years and I haven’t been down there for about 4-5 years. It is time for a visit once I get a new passport. I never been to Target! Can you believe that? LOL.

  18. Jessica says:

    I love those! I used to leave em at my boyfriends house as an alternative to my regular face wash. They really come in handy and do a good job removing makeup. You don’t have to use more than 1 like with other facial wipes where you end up using more. I’m also in love with Soap & Glory’s Dr. Spot! I read about Dr. Spot in I believe Glamour Magazine and went nuts trying to find it and I’m telling you that’s the next thing you gotta try from them. Soap & Glory is quickly becoming one of my new favorite brands.

  19. Christy says:

    Sigh, another reason for me to go shopping at Target. Love that store, I just hate the wait to cross the border.

    Karen no Flipping Out is on Bravo TV I believe. It’s about this OCD guy who loves to flip homes for a living, but since the economy has been down he does remodeling jobs. There’s a maid, his various assistants and his clients and they’re all hilarious.

  21. J. says:

    I need to get these as well, they sound great!
