I have had a long love hate relationship with liquid makeup removers. I’ve tried so many, been disappointed by the greasy oil slick they left behind went on to try others…fell in love with Korres Jasmine Makeup Remover, but couldn’t afford the $22 pricetag of late and with how I have been traveling over the last few months, liquid just isn’t feasible. So when I was approached to try Pond’s Wet Cleansing Towelettes, my interest was piqued by the thought of a simple towelette to remove my makeup…
The resealable package comes with 30 wet towelettes and although when you open each towelette it appears soapy looking/feeling, it in no way suds up on your skin or irritates your eyes. In fact, I think my immediate impression when I opened them was the fear that I was going to get soap in my eyes (and childhood memories flooded back into my head.) So I was completely impressed when the cleansing towelettes didn’t sting my eyes, but that it also effectively removed my makeup without any elbow grease involved.
I happened to run out of the towelettes on a day I was heading to CVS for some errands, and although I really liked how they worked, I figured I would pick up a different makeup remover to test out. So I grabbed Rimmel’s Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. Gentle? Yeah, not so much. It stung the heck out of my eyes and you know what I did? After a few tries of Rimmel I went back to CVS and picked up Pond’s.
Pro’s: Affordable price at $5 and change, convenient resealable packaging, no oily residue, didn’t sting my eyes, can easily be packed for travel.
