I have been trying and reviewing makeup wipes by several Korean brands. Some, I enjoyed using while some, not so much. The one in this post is by Nature Republic and it is not the best at removing stubborn, waterproof makeup but does justice to its price. Like I mentioned in all my reviews of makeup removal products, I love to wear makeup but removing makeup is not as fun. The makeup removing process is messy, it takes a while to get all the gunk off and above of all, most makeup removers leave some residue behind, especially waterproof eye makeup is hard to remove even with high end makeup removers. But, makeup removing wipes do make the process a little easier and considerably mess-free, even if they don’t leave face squeaky clean.
Contains 33 kinds of marine based ingredients to remove make-up with one facial wipe
How to Use:
Open the cap and remove one wipe. Remove point makeup then gently wipe over face to cleanse the skin.
My Experience with Nature Republic Hawaiian Deep Sea Cleansing Tissues:
These wipes by Nature Republic are not completely drenched wet in the product, but are reasonably saturated with the product; one wipe is sufficient to clean the face and neck and even remove some product from lids and water line. Recently, instead of using cleansing balm, I use cleansing oils. I particularly love the one by Julep and Derma E. After I massage my face with cleansing oil to break down the makeup, I wipe my face clean with these wipes as best as I can. I soak an edge in miceller water (I love the one by Clinique) and wipe my eye makeup clean. These wipes have no fragrance and I love that about them. They also do not sting my eyes when I use them to wipe my water line.
This wipe leaves skin hydrated and moisturized. It gives a refreshing feel to the skin after cleansing. These wipes contain deep sea minerals with rich Hawaii sea water and 33 kinds of sea ingredients. They are low acid cleansing wipes to remove impurities from skin while protecting skin with AHA ingredients. I have tried makeup removing wipes by drugstore brands and Korean brands and they all have their pros and cons. But, I like the ones by MAC the most but obviously, they are not favorable from the price point of view so, I don’t mind using cheaper alternative which might not perform just as well but still good enough for my everyday needs. The cleansing wipes my Korean brands offer a good substitute.
Wipes come in a packet with a flap to cover the opening that dispense the wipes. The wipes are textured and have mild exfoliating properties. It removes the base makeup really well and I remove my eye makeup with miceller water or a cleansing balm. I use all my wipes as wash cloth as well. I apply some face wash on the wipe and scrub my face and neck clean.
Pros of Nature Republic Hawaiian Deep Sea Cleansing Tissues:
- Affordable makeup removing wipes and are good at removing makeup.
- Easily removes base makeup. One wipe I sufficient for face and neck but does not remove the eye makeup efficiently.
- Each wipe is thoroughly saturated with product.
- Wipes are textured and are mildly abrasive because of their texture.
- Packaging is hygienic, dispenses product easily and is travel-friendly.
- Contains deep sea minerals with rich Hawaii sea water and 33 kinds of sea ingredients. It also contains AHA.
- Does not irritate eyes or sting them when used in the water line.
Cons of Nature Republic Hawaiian Deep Sea Cleansing Tissues:
- Has a strong rubbing alcohol smell. Alcohol is the second highest ingredient in these wipes and those who find it extremely drying should avoid it.
- Does not remove eye makeup easily and some other product has to be used for that purpose – I prefer to use a cleansing balm for this purpose.
IMBB Rating: 4.5/5

These wipes by Nature Republic are affordable and do justice to their price. I like their texture, they are not drying and remove base makeup well and best part is that they do not sting eyes when used in the waterline.
