I think we can all agree that makeup remover wipes are incredibly handy. They allow you to remove your makeup easily without need for a sink or a bunch of cleansers, on the go or even just in bed if you are the kind of person who stays up late and can’t be bothered taking the time to properly wash your face before bed. They are also super helpful if you have little girls who like playing with makeup!
Unfortunately, as great as I think the idea is, I haven’t come across a particular brand that I felt really got the job done. They either didn’t remove all the makeup, or left such a greasy residue that I felt the need to fully wash my face afterwards- which kind of missed the point.
So in my endless search for a wipe that gets the job done, I was happy to be given an opportunity to try the Comodynes Makeup Removing Wipes, which have been completely reformulated to be paraben free (yay).
I tried these wipes on myself, where one wipe fully removed my end of day makeup with no problem, as well as on both Sophie and Isabelle after doing their Halloween makeup. They easily handled the basic eye shadows and foundation I used, but the eyeliner I applied for Izzy’s zombie look didn’t budge. That eyeliner proved almost impossible to remove with other products as well, so I’m blaming it rather than these wipes for the failure, but it does indicate that waterproof or long lasting formulas might need a little extra beyond these cleansing wipes.
I received the normal skin formula, and it left my face feeling clean and moisturizer, but also residue free. Which is kind of amazing if you think about it.
Comodynes Makeup Remover Wipes come in four different combinations: normal, sensitive and dry skin, super sensitive, and oily/ combination skin. Each comes in convenient resealable packs of 20 wipes, and can be purchased through Comodynes and at select retailers nationwide (and of course on Amazon).
