Like any lazy beauty blogger, I love a good makeup remover wipe but I admit I wasn’t super excited when I received a package of Almay Oil-Free Makeup Remover Towelettes*, because unfortunately, although it’s a great brand, my last experience with Almay makeup remover was not.
Let’s start with the positive. Do the Almay Oil-Free Makeup Remover Towelettes remove makeup? Yes. They are fairly small but effective. They are fragrance-free, and not too tough on the skin, and with the exception of some more difficult areas (blue eyeliner, stubborn mascara) with the makeup removal aspect of these wipes. The other great thing is that because they are oil-free they don’t leave any kind of greasy residue behind, ready to clog my pores.
Unfortunately, the issue I have Almay Oil-Free Makeup Remover Towelettes is the same one I had last time–they are really painful on my eyes. Although one small wipe was enough to get most of my full face of makeup off, I had to stop because I just couldn’t stand having anymore in my eyes. For a brand that makes great makeup for sensitive skin, I honestly don’t know what goes in their makeup remover, but whatever it is, it simply does not work for me.
I’ll be using my Almay Oil-Free Makeup Remover Towelettes for swatches. Have you had any luck with the brand for makeup remover? Let me know what product you’d recommend. I’m kinda on a hunt now.
