Skin Type- Combination to Oily; Sensitive Skin – No
Please don’t kill me for reviewing another makeup remover for you all. I just cannot resist trying out makeup removers in all formats. Wipes come is handy no doubt but rarely they are as effective as the oil based/bi-phased ones. L’Oreal came up with this pretty recently and here are my thoughts on the same.
Price – Rs 400/- for 25 wipes
Ultra-soft towelettes gently yet effectively remove all traces of makeup, mascara and even long wear makeup. Dirt and oil are dissolved for clean and visibly tightened pores. These purifying towelettes do not dry out the skin.

My Experience with L’Oreal Ideal Clean Makeup Removing Towelettes:
The packaging is very much like the regular wet wipe packaging. The body is soothing white with hints of blue; comes with a stick-on to protect the tissues. As it is a 25 wipes pack, it is slightly bulky to carry around. For the makeup pouch a pack of 10 always comes handy. Anyway, I do not complain as these can be carried along to small trips to minimize the hassle of carrying makeup remover/cleanser.
The towelettes are textured which I quite like as they actually help in makeup removal. It has a pleasant cosmetic fragrance to it which is pretty refreshing. I find the size of these are slightly bigger compared to regular wet wipes, hence it helps in cleansing the face better and faster.
Coming to the effectiveness of the product, these are good for regular makeup removal or for that lip color removal post meal so that you can apply fresh. If you are looking for something that will take off every bit of makeup at the end of the day including your waterproof mascara and long lasting lipstick, you might end up feeling disappointed. It takes quite some time to actually break down the waterproof and long lasting formula and by the time all of the makeup is removed, you will find you have used up at least 2 towelettes, which is really not economical. I think saturating the wipes a bit more might do the trick.
Pros of L’Oreal Ideal Clean Makeup Removing Towelettes:
• Simple effective packaging.
• Textured towelettes.
• Not rough on the skin.
• Alcohol free.
• Good for removing regular makeup.
• Pleasant fragrance.
• Does not dry out skin.

Cons of L’Oreal Ideal Clean Makeup Removing Towelettes:
• Takes some time and effort to remove waterproof makeup.
• Could have been more saturated.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend L’Oreal Ideal Clean Makeup Removing Towelettes?
Repurchase- I don’t think so.
Recommend – only if you want something to refresh and touch-up on the go. It is not the best out there for removing long stay makeup, especially for the eyes.
