4 Beauty Editor-Approved Makeup Wipes You Need in Your Life
There’s no greater “in case of emergency” product than makeup wipes. Your mascara smudges, but with just a quick swipe you're back in business. You have an unexpected sleepover and they’re there to help minimize the damage (read: breakouts) that comes with not washing your face at night. Your face is covered with Halloween makeup, and they’re there to pick up the glitter and gemstones.
I'm not about to tell you to drop your double cleanse routine for a packet of makeup wipes, but you can’t deny how handy these little cloth squares can be. If I had to run to the bathroom every time I swatched a lipstick or tested a product on my hand, well, you wouldn’t be reading this article right now because I wouldn't have time for anything else.
I have my favorites, and I’m prepared to talk about them, but to give even more to choose from, I quizzed my incredibly talented beauty editor colleagues and got their picks, too. You can shop ‘em below.
Yes To Blueberries Age Refresh Towelettes
“These ultra-gentle face cloths remove every trace of makeup without leaving me tomato-faced. In fact, I find my complexion actually looks brighter after use, thanks to a blend of lemon peel and apple extracts," says InStyle Beauty Assistant, Dianna Mazzone.
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes
"This is a big statement but it’s true: This is probably my favorite product of all time. Nothing feels better than wiping away a day of makeup with Neutrogena. They are moisturizing, unscented, and work like a powerhouse. Beauty confession: I also use them to remove my son’s eye black after his football games. They are the only wipes that do the trick!" says InStyle Senior Beauty Editor, Selene Milano.
Ponds Original Fresh MoistureClean Towelettes
"I tend to suffer from dryness on my cheeks and nose, so I need to be very careful that the makeup wipes I use don't end up striping my skin. I love Pond's wipes beause they lift makeup with ease (swipe one across a face covered with foundation and then look at what transfers to the super soft cloth—it's wild), but they don't dry out my skin. I would assume it's because they're infused with the same vitamin E-packed technology as Pond's Cold Cream, which so happens to be the first cleanser I ever used," says MIMI Editor, Victoria Moorhouse.
RMS Beauty The Ultimate Makeup Remover Wipes
"RMS beauty wipes are quite possibly the only wipe I've ever considered being exclusive with. They have a texture unlike anything else. They feel dry to the touch and then they emulsify slightly. They're really lovely for ensuring you get the day off, they but don't strip or dry out your face. They also smell so damn good," says MIMI Beauty Editor, Roxanne Adamiyatt.
