Makeup cleansing wipes are made of polyester, cotton, or other materials soaked with substances that will remove your makeup and take away part of the bacteria and dirt that you accumulate during your day outside. These are considered the easiest and practical way to remove the makeup; hence are widely used.
They come in small packages and are easy to carry around and store, unlike micellar water or other cleaning products that need to be used with cotton pads or a clean towel.
Are the cleansing wipes recommended?
No, these wipes can’t remove your makeup completely. They will remove the superficial layer; however, you will need a double cleanser with other products to have a deep cleaning. Most of them can make your skin dry because of the high alcohol and fragrance content.
You can always keep your small wipe package in your purse and use it once in a while, and if you chose to use them on a more regular basis, try to find the wipe with no fragrance and no alcohol, this way, the chances of getting dry skin or allergies would be reduced.
