Hi loves! I have been absolutely obsessing over my recent finds in the cruelty-free & vegan makeup remover wipe section and I couldn’t wait to share! If you are like me and just can’t wait to take off all of your makeup right when you get home from work, then you probably have a stash somewhere of your favorite go-to makeup remover wipes. They are so quick and easy! I would much rather use a wipe than actually wash my face to rid my makeup, call me lazy, but I love ’em.
Any who, before I started this journey, my favorite makeup remover wipes were from the brand Simple. I actually used a LOT of the skin care items from Simple and it made me really sad to see that they test on animals. So like many other products, I ditched that brand and decided to check out some new animal friendly ones! Boy am I happy that I did! There are so many amazing options! It’s really hard to choose.
I have been finding quite a bit of cruelty-free options at my local Marshalls which has been awesome because I am saving a ton of money by purchasing items there. In case you didn’t know, I’m kind of a bargain queen, hence the “reasonable” name idea. I will always feature items here that are fairly reasonably priced to show readers that switching to more natural and cruelty-free products doesn’t mean you have to break the bank! Definitely check out your local Marshalls to see if you have any of these options too.
I found a lot of different makeup remover wipe options there and the first one I decided to try was from the brand Nature’s Nutraceuticals. Although there is little information out there on this company, I decided to give them a try because it was when I was first started transitioning towards more natural options and before I really started doing research on companies before I shopped. On the packaging it does say that they do not test the product on animals or have animal ingredients, but this did appear to be an older package from what I am seeing online now. SO in the future I will probably not purchase this again unless I get a statement from the company itself. For those of you that are just looking for a more natural option, this wipe was pretty good to use. It is a thicker towelette which I really enjoyed because I felt like it held more product; however, I did find myself using more than one wipe to really clean my face. I went through this package fairly quickly even though it provided 50 wipes. I am thinking maybe the formula is not strong enough or I just have pretty tough skin haha. The scent is kind of nice but nothing too amazing either, in my opinion. Either way, if you see this in your local Marshalls or other discount store, I would say pick it up and give it a try. It is a good option for those that are currently in transition.
The next wipes that I tried I received as a bonus gift from Pacifica thanks to their lovely loyalty program. 🙂 I have heard so many people rave about these Purify Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes so I was really excited to give them a try. Coming off of using a very thick wipe, these seemed very thin to me. They smelled pretty amazing right out of the box, like fresh coconuts. The first time I used them I had pretty thick liner and mascara on, so I really had to rub to get the makeup off. It wasn’t a simple wipe, I had to work it in pretty well before I saw all of my makeup gone. I then went back on their website and saw that they did make note that these wipes will not remove all makeup because it is made without chemical solvents and more natural. I did notice that these wipes have a lot of product, some of which are oils that do get left behind on your skin, which makes for a nice moisturizer. As for all Pacifica products, these are vegan and cruelty-free! A great refreshing wipe option for those of you that are looking for a light clean.
The current makeup remover wipes that I am using are the Alba Botanica Hawaiian 3-in-1 clean towelettes. Holy moly guys, this is holy grail status for me. These are simply AMAZING. I was in love after the first try. I also found this at my local Marshalls and they were hella cheap! Sure there is only 10 wipes in the package I bought, but trust me, these go a long way. I only have to use one wipe to take off all of my makeup! They are thick, smell friggin spectacular, and feel so amazing on my skin. I also really love that they are a 3-in-1 type of wipe so I can knock out cleansing, moisturizing, and toning all at once. I get excited when I need to remove my makeup because they are that good!! I am also becoming a huge fan of this brand. Like Pacifica, these Alba Botanica wipes are 100% cruelty-free and vegan. The brand offers many vegan options! They have some other wonderful products that I will be reviewing shortly! I highly recommend trying out these wipes…. in case you couldn’t tell already. Obsessed.
