Pixi Lash Nourish Makeup Remover Pads ($10) launched with the Pixi Summer 2016 Collection and yet another fine addition to Pixi’s Skincare Collection. I’m always looking for budget friendly eye makeup removers. I adore Lancome Bi-Facil as much as the next girl but I hate paying $30 bucks for it. I know, I’ll spend $50 on lipstick but I carry on kicking and screaming about paying higher than $15 for eye makeup remover.
I have no idea where that mentality comes from.
But anyway, Pixi Lash Nourish Makeup Remover Pads are a mere $10 bucks and include 80 pads. Slight problem though, they are kind of small.
Pixi Lash Nourish Makeup Remover Pads contain a rather fantastic array of moisturizing incidents such as olive oil, glycerin, and argan oil. I was pleasantly surprised at how lovely they felt removing my eye makeup. I have terribly dry eyes and I felt like these added a little hydration under my eyes after I removed my eye makeup! That’s always a plus right?
These aren’t terribly saturated but they remove makeup very well including waterproof mascara. I didn’t have to tug or put a ton of pressure on my eye during the process and it was easy enough to whisk away eye makeup and mascara with absolutely no drama. I’d say this got about 95% of my eye makeup off without a problem.
Well, wait, one problem!
I had to use about three pads per an eye. They got the size terribly wrong in my opinion. These are pretty darn small! I put a quarter next to one of the pad just so you can get an idea of the size. They really are big on removal but the size is a bit of a problem. You do get a good deal of pads for $10 bucks but you might run through them a lot slower if they were a big larger in size. I’d actually consider less for the same price if the pads were bigger.
Aside from the size, I thought Pixi Lash Nourish Makeup Remover Pads were quite a nice pick. I typically don’t trust eye makeup remover pads and prefer liquids for removal but these worked a treat and would make an excellent travel companion!
