I have very sensitive skin and eyes, so when choosing new beauty products to try I am always wary of an adverse reaction. Luckily, I didn’t have to worry about Almay Hypo-Allergenic Eye Makeup Remover Pads at all! ($5, Drugstore.com)
Available in both non-oily and moisturizing varieties, these eye makeup remover pads are honestly a miracle in a tub. Most eye makeup removers I’ve tried are harsh, stinging and just not pleasant at all. These remover pads, however, are exceptionally soothing with aloe, cucumber and green tea and are 100% fragrance free for those who are irritated by synthetic fragrances.
Because these pads are conveniently packaged with remover already on them, they’re ideal for long nights when you just want to go to bed but still need to remove your makeup. One pad cleans both eyes quickly and efficiently and, if you don’t have time to wash your entire face, I’ve found you can use another pad to remove the rest of your makeup for a clean and refreshed feeling.
What’s more, they even remove waterproof mascara and eyeliner – something I’ve found other eye makeup removers just don’t do as well. If you’re worried about burning, stinging or irritating your eyes and the surrounding areas, you don’t have to – as a woman who suffers from exceptionally sensitive skin, I can guarantee that won’t be a problem with Almay’s hypo-allergenic remover pads!
Additionally, there’s no need to spend upwards of $20 or more on expensive department store eye makeup removers. Almay’s eye makeup remover pads include 80 pre-moistened wipes for around $5. You’re not going to find a better deal that actually works anywhere else.
Even women who are fans of the smokey eye or dramatic eye looks can rest assured that these remover pads will take off even the thickest makeup gently and effectively.
Overall, I was very pleased with Almay’s Hypo-allergenic Eye Makeup Remover Pads, and would happily spend the money again once these run out. If you try them, please let me know how they work for you in the comments!
