I like these cloths for removing my eye makeup. I think that the cloths are thick enough, very moisturizing, and very good at removing my makeup. I do not trust any removing cleansing cloths to fully remove my makeup, I usually wash my face after use.
The only thing I have a problem with are they burn my eyes. They REALLY burn my eyes, and adding water to rinse my eyes only make it worse! I thought that it was just the pack that I used, but every pack I have make my eyes burn.
For that reason, when I finsh the packs I have bought, I don't think I will be repurchasing.
i really like these! they're only 3 dollars, that's a win. they thoroughly remove your makeup (in my opinion), but in the end you still would need a facial cleanser to fully remove makeup. after you swipe them across your face, your face feels so refreshed. i really want to try the almay or the maybelline ones, so i wouldn't repurchase right now, but i will if i end up not liking the almay or maybelline ones. the packaging is good. i would recommend this to anyone.
This is the worst $3 I ever spent. These are not cleansing cloths. These are like tissue paper, extremely thin, very dry, and filled with irritating, ineffective, pore-clogging ingredients. I will never buy a makeup remover again without reading the entire description and list of ingredients. Lets take a look at the bad guys:
1. Dimethicone .... For those of you who don't know, Dimethicone is a man-made, non-biodegradable, silicon oil that acts as a plastic barrier on your skin. (Imagine spraying hairspray all over your face) trapping everything underneath and keeping your skin from performing its normal functions. It is a major skin irritant and prolonged exposure to this chemical will dry you out big time.
2. Glyceryl Stearate ... A wax-like chemical derived from three different oil ingredients. Several studies have shown Glyceryl Stearate to be a moderately comedogenic skin irritant with a high potential to clog pores.
3. Cetearyl Alcohol and Benzyl Alcohol. Not one, but TWO alcohols to rub all over your face! Perhaps this is why my eyes stung so badly! Need I say more?
I didn't love these. The cloths are large, but are very thin and don't seem to hold much moisture. The resealable sticker rips easily, so there's danger of the wipes drying out. I felt like I had to scrub and rub the barely damp cloths to remove my eye makeup. $3 for 20 cloths is an ok price I guess, but I much prefer the generic CVS brand which has thicker, moister wipes. If you're looking to save money, try a different generic brand of wipes instead.
Love this, it only took one wipe to remove all my foundation, blush and powders and yes, all my eye makeup as well. I have tried other store brands to save money and was sorry I did. I like other ELF products and thought I would try it for the price, can't beat 3 bucks...and I am not disappointed at all! Nice smell, and a squeaky clean face!
i hated these, they are the worst cleansing clothes i have ever tried. i had to scrub to remove any makeup and it left a sticky gross residue on my face. they package dried out really quickly too. i would not recommend these wipes.
I loved these wipes. only problem I had was that there wasn't enough to me in one package. They dried out a little too fast for my likening but they definitely get the job done. I would wash your face after using this just because it leaves that oily residue feeling but it works otherwise.
I love this cleansing cloth. I would say it's comparable to Neutrogena's make-up cleansing cloth except half the price. I always try to stock up on these when I'm at my local Target. It even removes my waterproof mascara. One cloth always does the job for me, for my entire face. I would definitely suggest you try this out if you're looking for some affordable make-up remover cleansing cloth.
Even at $3, this isn't a product worth buying. It took two full cloths to fully remove my foundation, primer and eye makeup and when I washed my face the next morning (!!) guess what - still some traces of foundation.
I have fairly sensitive skin so I try not to be too harsh with any product, but after my first try with these wipes, I went to town on my face trying to get my foundation off. Nope! No matter how rough or gentle you are, these wipes just suck at taking off liquid foundation.
e.l.f. describes the wipes as "Gentle cloths are soft and soothing for even the most sensitive skin." (from eyeslipsface.com, 08/2012). When used on my face, the wipes felt scratchy best and over my eyes, rough.
Aside from product efficacy and quality issues, the wipes repeatedly left my face feeling raw and my eyes watery and painfully stinging. Clearly one of the ingredients didn't agree with me. I bought these to clean up an Emergency Swatching Mess and quite frankly I wish I had just went to work looking like that rather than buying these.
Two lippies because not everyone is going to have the same adverse reaction that I did.
Background: The only remover wipes I've ever repurchased are the Up & Up/Target brand Neutrogena dupes (in the purple pack - they're gentle, remove makeup well, leave no residue, and are priced low). Every other kind I've ever tried doesn't remove eye makeup well, won't remove foundation, or leaves a horrible residue - which claims to be moisturizing - that can only be removed by cleansing.
These E.L.F. Studio cloths are no exception. I purchased a couple of packs online during the recent 50% off sale. Let me begin with the only positive thing I can say about this product - the packaging is nice. While you only get 20 wipes in a pack, the nice snap lid keeps wipes sealed and moist.
Now the negatives: The cloths are super thin and like a bad paper towel. After one swipe of one side of my face the cloth is almost completely dry, and unless I want to rub a dry cloth against my face, I have to use at least two to get the majority of my makeup off (where as just one of the Target brand wipes does the job). And about the moisture of the wipes - it just feels greasy. It is seriously like rubbing a paper towel full of grease on your face. I'm not sure who told E.L.F. that cheap grease is moisturizing, but it irritates my non-sensitive skin so much that, even after cleansing with my gentle stuff, my night cream burns on application. And as for removing eye makeup with these wipes? Forget it, don't even try it unless you want that same grease in your eyes. Even if you try to just remove light shadow with these, your eyelids will burn into the next day. I like to keep a pack of cleansing cloths in my gym bag, but these make it impossible because of how greasy they make your face. I used one of these, went to spin class, and the sweat mixed with the grease, ran into my eyes, and I had to stop and go to the bathroom to rinse my eyes. So these wipes suck for daytime use not only because you absolutely must cleanse afterwards to get the residue off, but if you sweat for any reason at all, it will find a way into your eyes and burn.
I know these are really cheap, but think about it. You get only 20 per pack (compared to 25-30 from most other brands), and if you have to use 2-3 wipes to do the same job as just 1 of the other brands, you're just wasting money. I recommend trying out the Neutrogena (purple packaging) dupes from your local Target/Walmart/other DS. They don't leave an awful greasy residue and can remove eye makeup gently. As for these - 1 lippie for the packaging, 0 lippies for everything else. A huge miss among many hits from E.L.F. continued >>
