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.
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.
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.
