I’m not normally an advocate for face wipes. I’d much rather cleanse and polish (Liz Earle stylee) with one notable exception – after a night out! As much as I pride myself on never sleeping with my make up on, once I’ve passed the 3 glass mark, all bets are off and at 2 am (okay, who am I kidding, it’s more like 12 these days) I’m hardly about to commence my evening skincare ritual. Enter Eyeko Mascara Off Wipes. The first face wipes that actually remove mascara and gel liner! With the party season upon is, I can’t recommend these enough!
Delicate and kick-ass powerful in equal measures. They eliminate all traces of eye make up, even waterproof mascara and gel liner. That Smokey Eyes that took an hour to create... gone in seconds! Yet, the 100% pure cotton wipes are serious gentle and soft. Enriched with a botanical blend of soothing aloe vera, smoothing olive oil, refreshing grapefruit extract and puff-reducing allantoin, they’re nice and moist and won’t irate the delicate eye area.
How to use: Place wipe on the eye area and gently hold for 5-10 seconds to soften and loosen the make up before gently wiping off in circular movements, turn over and do the same on the other eye.
A pack of ten wipes costs £6, although check out the current ASOS promotion here to bag them for £4.50. Now they are pretty pricey, but think of it like this, when you roll in late at night would you happily pay 45p to make you make up vanish?
