{ Review } Almay Eye Makeup Remover Pads

Almay Eye Makeup Remover Pads, R149 for 80

What I say: These pads remove all traces of makeup that soap and water can leave behind, with no greasy residue. With a botanical blend of aloe, cucumber and green tea, they sweep away makeup without irritation. They are hypoallergenic, fragrance-free and dermatologist tested.

What I say: These have popped into my routine every few years, and I’m always surprised by them. I use Bioderma Sensibio H20 to remove my eye makeup every day, and these pads work just as well, but I prefer Bioderma because it cleans the rest of your face, too.

But these are great for travelling and for those of you who don’t need a facial pre-cleanse. They make light work of all eye make up (including waterproof mascara and eye liner) and are oil free, so safe for contact lens wearers.
