The Best Makeup Removing Wipes.

Removing makeup every night before bed is one of the most important steps in your beauty routine. If you don't want to take the time and cleanse your skin at the sink, the easiest way to remove makeup and cleanse your skin is with a makeup removing wipe. There are many makeup removing wipes available. Some simply remove  makeup, but some do much more. Some makeup removing wipes have added benefits of exfoliating and some even have skin care ingredients in them.

Using Makeup Wipes to Remove Makeup

I have tested a lot of makeup removing wipes because it is how I prefer to take off my makeup at night, before cleansing my skin (yes, I do both). These are the best makeup removing wipes.

So easy, don't know what I'd do without my wipes at nighttime. I use Ponds too.
I need to find one I like. Had a sample of Josie Maran and had to use three to get off all my makeup. Want a thicker wipe.
Hmmmm.. which one is the best for oily skin? I don't want it to aggravate my acne.
Harder to come by, but the Mary Kay Facial cleansing cloths are amazing. I actually cut mine in half to last longer as the amount of cleanser on the cloth goes a long way. These are perfect for on the go face cleaning. The wipe is good consistency and doesn't flake off in little pieces. I also like the way I can rinse the towelette and tell that it has completely removed all of my makeup leaving my skin soft and smooth.
I found the smell of Ponds wipes just terrible. I feel in love with something I picked up at Boots in the UK. It's their Tea tree & witch hazel cleansing and toning wipes and they are AMAZING. I love them. The only time I use something else is...if they were free and I'm testing them.
I went to CVS looking for the Neutrogena wipes and they were out so I purchased the CVS brand. Amazing! They sell several different kinds. I got the exfoliating wipes and they're textured and take off all of my makeup . I still use an eye makeup remover beforehand to make sure every trace of mascara is gone.
I had used some L'Oreal, Pond's and Costco Makeup Removal Wipes. None of them worked well for me.. I do like MAC products even though they are expensive... occasionally I go Dillard's and they try a product out on me.. (I think MAC cream eye shadows are the best ones although some of the other Estee Lauder brands may be as good... Origins was a little cheaper than MAC) Anyway they used a makeup remover sheet on me and it was fabulous. A couple of months later I bought the biggest size 100 for about $29.00... this may not be a lot more than the drug store brands which seem to come in packets of 20 or 25. They make smaller sizes and MAC stores sell a travel size. I think 25 sheets was $16.00 of the MAC makeup remover wipes.

I use sunblock daily and always wear gel bronzer.. I live in the SW where the sun is strong, and you can get tan without trying to in the summer. I can get away with a slight tan in the winter.

The bronzer is to help make my face darker so my dark circles are not as bad.. I use 3 products. I do use allergy nose spray but still have allergies... even in the winter. and I have a kidney disease--- they will never go away. They are lighter or darker sometimes depending on my allergies, how much sleep I get etc. I have used various eye creams. I think that the only thing that will help is to have the dermatologist use on of the laser treatments... I don't know if my under eye area should be filled in with a filler or not.
