Skin Type: Oily, fair, sensitive
How are you all? I am a lazy person by nature, and living in hostel has further caused time insufficiency. So, I need quick methods to do makeup and more importantly, to remove it off! Since sleeping with makeup on is a cardinal sin for every beauty conscious person, I make it a point to remove all traces of makeup before I sleep, but the whole process of getting cotton balls, pouring makeup remover, cleaning, getting extra cotton seems cumbersome at times. So, I often rely on makeup removing wipes on days I feel too lazy or tired, but they fail in removing long-wearing makeup especially mascara. These eye makeup remover pads by Almay seemed like an answer to my prayers. Let’s see how Almay Longwear and Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads worked for me.
Almay oil-free gentle eye makeup remover pads are part of Almay, the number 1 eye makeup remover brand in America, which offers a full line of makeup removers to meet the needs of your skin and eyes. Gentler than soap and water, Almay Makeup Removers condition skin while removing makeup without irritation.
My Experience with Almay Longwear and Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads:
Packaging: The packaging is very handy and simple. It comes in a white jar with a screw-on lid. The makeup remover pads are securely nestled in the jar with an additional flap cover. All the product details are mentioned on the body. Overall it’s a very compact, sturdy and travel-friendly packaging.
The jar contains 80 oil-soaked makeup remover pads. The pads are white circular disks which are extremely thin and lightweight. The pads are soaked in oil, but thankfully, there is no oil dripping from the pads. The oily pads breakdown eye makeup very well. In fact, even long-wearing eye liners like those of L’Oréal and Diana of London, shimmery eyeshadows by MUR and Essence get removed by a single swipe. So, the makeup removing power is commendable. Even mascaras like Maybelline Falsies get removed by a couple of swipes. Only very tough gel liners need some extra effort to be removed completely. I also use these makeup remover pads to remove my matte lipsticks and long-staying liquid lipsticks like Diana of London 2000 Kisses. So, I feel that this is economical for regular use.
These makeup remover pads are gentle and non-irritant even though they contain chemical ingredients, so they don’t sting my sensitive eyes like some other makeup removers. But these pads leave an oily film, but a generous splash of water is enough to solve the issue. You may use a face wash if you want to. The eye makeup remover pads do not dry out the delicate eye area, and are mild yet effective.
