I used my daughters facial wipes over xmas & thought what a handy thing to have in for if you can't be bothered to do the full routine, a lot better than nothing!
I wear really bomb proof mascara, what's the best facial wipes for stubborn eyemakeup? Any recommendations?

    I've never found any that are -that- good for them unless they're special eye make up wipes...
    I use eye make up remover then my wipes.
    New to this money saving lark. Any tips greatly received.

  • I wear waterproof mascara and I use baby wipes, works for me. There cheaper than face wipes too.
  • I use high end make-up inc waterproof mascara & liquid eyeliner and find Wilko's are fab! 50p a pack (25). I couldn't live without them!

    I agree with Pleut, I have tried many wipes and always end up needing to scrub at my eyes which even if I do veeery very slightly, cause my eyes to puff up and go pink. I use a two-part eye make up remover (Garnier's works well, Lancôme, Clinique, Chanel....etc are all fantastic but crazy prices).


    I don't tend to need a wipe afterwards, just the other side of the cotton wool I'd been using. No red eyes and works out around the same price if not cheaper.

    Sounds weird, but I use oil to remove my eye makeup. With a finger and thumb tip dipped in argan oil (other oil would work too), I gently massage my eyeliner and eyelashes, and use a cotton pad to wipe this away. Repeat til all clear.

    Honestly, oil makes short work of eye makeup, is gently (no scrubbing or harsh detergents needed) and is uber cheap!

    I do this too, but with baby oil.... works perfect.

    That sounds a bit messy though- do you not worry about getting things in the pot of oil when you dip your fingers in? It sounds like a nice idea and quite a healthy idea compared to those of us using man-made chemicals on our faces! But I feel too hung up on ending up with a pot/jar..etc of oil which would look a bit grey after a few days, even if I scrub my fingers there is always some amount of dead skin cells on there-unless I am weird and it's just me/my skin!

    Facial wipes won't do your skin any good in the long term. Garnier do a make up remover that is more oil based, you have to shake it up to mix the layers in order to use it. Makes short work of gel liner/mascara etc.

    I use "Garnier Skin Naturals Softening Cleansing Lotion For Face & Eyes". This is the only remover I use (for entire face) and it removes my very stubborn black eye liner with ease.
