Pond’s has a new range of wet cleansing towelettes in morning and evening formulas. Yay for AM and PM versions! Granted, you prob won’t need an AM version unless you’re pulling an all nigher, I slept in my makeup adventure but still the novelty of having different formulas is innovative to say the least.
Outside of my HG cleansing wipes of choice, MAC, I really don’t like alot of wipes because they just don’t do that great a job of cleaning up waterproof eye makeup.
The new Pond’s Evening Sooth Towelettes promise to clean away makeup and waterproof mascara….
Could it be true? Seriously?
A cleansing wipe that gently removes makeup, oil, dirt, and even waterproof mascara.
These are a great budget option for nights you’re feeling an ickle lazy to go through the entire skincare removal regime. A 30 pack is a mere $4.99 so you also stash them by your desk if you happen to be a beauty blogger so you can remove icky swatches from your arm!
The towelettes are a sturdy, quilted design that’s thick and soft. They have a strong chamomile and white tea scent which comes across like a fresher floral to my nose. It’s a very pleasant scent but I do think it might prove irritating if you’re sensitive to scented skincare.
They aren’t terribly saturated but they are damp enough to quickly swipe across your face to remove oil, makeup, and gook easily. Surprisingly they do a decent job of waterproof mascara removal but some tugging is involved to get it off. Compared to other wipes of its kind, I’d say they get just about all my eye makeup off in a hurry unlike others that leave behind some mascara. The wipes don’t leave my skin tight after use nor do they make my skin tacky or sticky.
I think they are ideal for minimal makeup users or for those really lazy nights you can’t stand the idea of spending extra time to remove your makeup when all you want to do is hit the sack.
If you want to get all your waterproof mascara off a bit of tugging is involved which of course I don’t recommend around the delicate eye area (‘elllllllo wrinkles!).
I found the scent very pleasant and soothing but those who are sensitive might not particularly love it.
- Beauty bloggers (keep ’em at your desk to remove swatches between pic taking or after it).
- Minimal makeup users (these will remove minimal makeup in a flash).
- Lazy girls (can’t be bothered with an entire regime of removal products? Use these!).
- They party to hard, stayed out to late ladies (Wanna hit the hay fast? Use these to remove your makeup!).
- Those who want to remove their waterproof eye makeup gently (they remove shadow easily but removing waterproof mascara takes a bit of tugging so beware).
- Those sensitive to heavily fragranced skincare (I find the scent very pleasant but it could be disturbing to sensitive types).
Pond’s Evening Sooth Towelettes are a handy little beauty bit to have around for quickie makeup removal in a flash. I personally like the option of having these near my desk so I can swipe off makeup I’ve swatched easily when I’m blogging! I also like them when I’m in a hurry because lord knows my night makeup removal regime is borderline crazy sometimes and this allows me to quickly and easily get everything off so I can get to bed pronto!
If you’re a cleansing wipe kinda girl you might wanna check these out particularly if you wear all the minimal amount of makeup. As our mother’s told us, don’t go to bed with your makeup on!
