There’s nothing worse than waking up to discover new pimples on your face, simply because you passed out with your makeup still intact! (If you’ve never experienced this, you’re definitely one of the lucky ones). But, I don’t blame you! When our days get too long and tiring, the trip to the bathroom to carry out your 10-minute long night routine just seems like a bit too much!
Luckily, makeup wipes provide a quick and clean fix to this problem! With a pack of them on your nightstand, you can simply pop one (or two) out and wipe out your makeup from the comfort of your bed. To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best makeup remover wipes in the market that will not only remove the toughest of eyeliners, mascaras, etc. but also leave your skin feeling soft and hydrated!
So let’s get into it, shall we?
SheBegan Magazine’s Picks for the Best Makeup Remover Wipes:
- Pond’s Moisture Clean Makeup Remover Wipes – $12.99
These wipes are infused with Pond’s cold cream formula which has a triple antioxidant complex for efficient makeup removal. These wipes are not only super soft (yet textured) but also very saturated with the product without feeling greasy on your skin (which tends to be a problem with some wipes). They cleanse your skin while preventing it from feeling ‘too tight’ and don’t leave behind a film of residue on your skin either (which would require you to rinse your face after use!).
Their hypoallergenic properties make them safe for use with contact lenses and around your eyes without causing irritation. However, if you’re wearing waterproof mascara (or eyeliner), instead of rubbing your eyes, simply saturate the eyelid/eyelash with the product first. You can do this by holding the wipe over your lid for a few seconds to allow the product to sink in, then gently wiping it off for easy removal.
- Simple skincare cleansing facial wipes – $15.69
These dermatologically tested wipes remove your makeup and cleanse your skin without the use of any artificial scents, coloring, or harsh chemicals that might pose a problem for your skin. With an extra soft texture, they ensure that your face is left irritation- free while easily removing all your makeup, (even for oily skins).
However, some users have claimed that these wipes tend to spread your makeup around while cleaning so you might have to go over it several times to make sure it’s completely removed. Along with that, the wipe does leave a bit of a sticky feeling on your face so you might need to rinse your face after use which can be annoying!
- Neutrogena Hydrating Makeup Remover Face Wipes – $17.99
These are dermatologically tested wipes that have a cucumber and Aloe Vera extracts infused formula which is extremely gentle and hydrating on your skin. However, make sure to read the ingredients before purchase because a few customers have complained about experiencing a burning and drying sensation after use. These are, however, very travel-friendly as well.
- Clean & Clear Oil-Free Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleansing Wipes – $4.99
These oil-free wipes are compatible with all skin types and great for cleansing away the oil and dirt while also removing your makeup. They are safe to use on sensitive and eczema-prone skin as they’ve been allergy and ophthalmologist tested. A single wipe is large enough to cleanse your entire face and leaves your skin feeling soft (without uncomfortable tightness). Bear in mind that these do come with the classic clean & clear smell!
- Aveeno Ultra-Calming Cleansing Oil-Free Makeup Removing Wipes – $11.46
Aveeno makeup wipes are great for sensitive skin as their formula includes chamomile extract and calming feverfew which leaves your skin feeling soothed, balanced, and irritation-free. Even people with Rosacea and Lupus prone skin have given this product a thumb up!
With their gentle formula, you won’t have to worry about a burning sensation around your eyes while removing extra tough eye- makeup. However, if you’re wearing a full face of heavy makeup, you might need 2 of these to make sure everything’s been removed properly.
- Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes – $14.91
With white tea, cucumber, and Aloe Vera extracts, these wipes will leave your skin feeling soft and makeup-free. Apart from using them as makeup removers, you can pop one of these out when you wake up, to get rid of that early morning oil and dirt on your face.
This is a natural formula that’s free of nasty parabens, phthalates, or petroleum. However, once again when it comes to removing tough makeup, it’s best to hold these in place for a few seconds before gently wiping to prevent feeling like you’re scrubbing your eyes out.
- Josie Maran Bear Naked Wipes – $12
Lastly, if you’re looking for an environmentally friendly product, then Josie Maran Bear wipes are for you! They’re vegan, natural, cruelty, fragrance-free and biodegradable! Additionally, since the company is associated with a charity, a portion of what your proceeds help protect the polar bears. Their size makes them perfect for simply throwing in your handbag and rushing out the door. However, they aren’t as moisturizing as Neutrogena and might be a little rough on the skin at times.
