e.l.f.: Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

I bought these cleansing wipes on a whim during e.l.f.'s latest 60% off sale. With an original retail price of $3.00, even if they turned out to be horrible I knew I wasn't really losing out. Here's what the website says:

Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths Gently and easily cleans skin to remove all traces of makeup and dirt, even waterproof mascara. Great for on-the-go travel. Gentle cloths are soft and soothing for even the most sensitive skin. Infused with Aloe Vera Extract for deep hydration and moisture. 20 Pre-moistened cloths included.

I must admit that after using these a few times I'm very pleasantly surprised at how well they work! Right out of the package the e.l.f. wipes were very moist and did a great job of removing both face and eye makeup. They don't really leave a filmy feeling behind, though when I use them I can sometimes see a milky white substance that I'm assuming is part of the cleansing solution that the wipe is saturated with.

In the pictures below I used one wipe to take off my Wet N Wild Mega Last Lipstick swatches. The first is just one swipe down the middle of all 4 swatches and you can see that even with that first pass a lot of the lipstick is removed. After scrubbing a bit more about 98% of the lipstick is totally gone, with just some barely visible to the naked eye outlines left - which I contribute more to the extreme pigmentation of the lipstick than a problem with the wipe.
All in all I think they're a great value for the money and perfect for quick clean-ups on myself or others.
