At the end of the day, when you’ve had makeup on for hours, and you’ve already started to sweat it off or smudged it, and all you want to do is rub your eyes or basically just get all the gunk off your face, a makeup remover is definitely the key to success.

There’s almost nothing worse (when it comes to makeup) than trying to scrub off the stuff you’ve got caked over your eyes because the remover you have just isn’t doing the job. I’ve been around town when it comes to methods of removal: water is a joke, that whole put-lotion-on-a-cotton-pad thing takes forever and it’s messy, and most liquid and wipe removers can feel like they’re about to burn a hole through your eyes.

The two dilemmas when it comes to makeup removal methods: they don’t work, or they work really well while feeling like hot acid on your skin. There must be a better way!

There is, and it’s Aveeno Active Naturals Ultra-Calming Makeup Removing Wipes. This product is my savior. These wipes are effective while still being gentle on your precious eyeballs that you need in order to, you know, see and other great things.

These pads are cushiony and durable, plus they don’t smell super chemical-y like other remover wipes I’ve used. They’ve taken off even my most stubborn mascara, and all without using up the whole wipe. That’s the great thing about makeup removing wipes: they last through an entire makeup removal session; just use a different part of the wipe for each section of your face.

So you’re getting actual makeup removal, plus giving your eyes a break, plus getting your money’s worth because the supply you only use one per day. Sounds great to me.

You can get this product at local drugstores for about $7, depending on which store; totally a product worth spending a few bucks for.

So if you’re in need of a superior makeup remover, go for this one: Aveeno Active Naturals Ultra-Calming Makeup Removing Wipes for the win!
