Marcelle Essentials Face Cleansing Cloths review

Back in October last year, I was sent some Annabelle Eye Makeup Remover Cloths. They were meant for eye makeup removal only but I used them for the whole face (not reading the instructions clearly) and kept wondering why they were so small, lol.

A month or two ago, I received the real deal for full face makeup removal: Marcelle Essentials Face Cleansing Cloths, retails around CAD11 a pack of 25’s.

This first pic is to show you the size of the cloth vs. the size of the pack. I forgot to store the pack up side down, which explains the uneven moisturized sheet – more liquid at the fold.

The cloth is of a good size to do the job for the whole face. The formula works for all skin types, is hypo-allergenic and perfume free (i.e. no added fragrances). It does have a scent which comes from the ingredients themselves. I personally prefer scent free cloths, as the scent does linger on your face and hands after use.

Below is a close up to show the texture of the cloth. It’s thick enough to clean the face without pulling apart and soft enough for the delicate facial skin.

Main ingredients: Water, Propylene Glycol, Isopropyl Palmitate, etc., including Benzyl Alcohol – for those of you who want to know.

The promises: no greasy after-feel, eliminate long-wearing makeup (including waterproof mascara) while preserving the skin’s natural moisture balance.

For me, these held true, for the nights that I was too lazy to wash my face or for the days I don’t wear any makeup – as a quick clean to get rid of the oil on my face before bed. I’ll spare you from a pic of the dirty cloths after the job, as I don’t find it necessary this time 🙂 My face feels fresh and clean (and not dry) afterward, no rinsing needed.

The cloths work well for my daily wear of waterproof mascara (1-2 coats), but if you wear dramatic night looks with 3-4 coats of mascara, it’s best to follow up with some eye makeup remover.

I sometimes found these cloths in a bonus 2-for-1 packs, or with a bonus cleanser, great way to save some bucks, if you are looking into trying it. If you have tried these cloths before, let me know what you think of them.
