Battle Of the Makeup Wipes

Finally a new post! Sorry about the wait. If you haven't read my update post on why there won't be as many posts coming up yet please read it here :).
Makeup wipes are my favourite thing to use when removing makeup. I always use them before properly cleansing my face in the evening. Also you can easily carry them with you and they're the perfect size.
Recently I've been trying out a couple different ones so here's a couple mini reviews on the ones I've tried.

Nivea Refreshing Cleansing Wipes normal skin
These are actually the first makeup wipes that I tried. They removed most of the face makeup I was wearing but they weren't that good with mascara and other eye makeup. Also the scent is too chemical for my liking. I think these wipes are good for precleansing your face on a makeup-free day before using a proper cleanser. I'd give them a 2.5 out of 5.

Nivea Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes dry&sensitive skin
(sorry that there's no picture of this product, I finished the package and threw it away before deciding to write this post)
Because I wasn't satisfied with the first Nivea wipes, I thought I'd give some of the other ones from the same brand a chance. The scent is a lot more natural in these wipes but they definitely removed even less makeup than the wipes for normal skin! Nevertheless, I really loved using these on makeup-free days just to freshen up my face so I'd still give these wipes a 3 out of 5.

Simple Kind to Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes
I almost gave up using makeup wipes after noticing that the Nivea ones didn't do their job but then I saw these Simple ones at my local department store and I'm very glad I decided to give them a try! They remove all the makeup from my face and even light eye makeup. There's almost no scent to them and they feel a lot softer on the face than the Nivea ones. Also the packaging stays closed better so the wipes don't dry out. I'd definitely recommend these wipes and I'd give them a 5 out of 5.

Simple Kind to Eyes Eye Makeup Remover Pads
Even though the Simple Facial Wipes remove all of my everyday makeup, I have to use these Simple Eye Makeup Remover Pads if I'm wearing a heavy eye makeup to make sure there's none of it left. These are the most effective makeup remover pads/wipes I've tried but because they're about five times smaller in size, I only use them for heavy eye makeup. The only bad thing about these pads is that they're thicker than the wipes and because of that can feel harsh on the eyes if you rub them a lot with the pad and press it too hard. I'd give these pads 4.5 out of 5.

Have you tried any of these makeup wipes?

    I always used to use wipes back in my no skincare routine days, but they have such a bad reputation these days that I have completely gone off them and use Micellar water with cotton pads instead. The only ones I've tried from this bunch are the Nivea ones x

  2. I've heard so many good things about the Micellar water! I bet it has to be amazing then :)
    The only makeup wipes I like are the Simple ones, all the other ones I've tried are terrible!
