Facial Wipe Wednesday: Sephora’s Express Eye Makeup Remover Wipes

I’m sure you have heard the saying ‘If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.’ Well, that isn’t going to apply with this installment of Facial Wipe Wednesday. My review of Sephora’s Express Eye Makeup Remover Wipes is not a positive one.

I will start off with what I liked about the product. I was drawn to try these because each wipe is individually wrapped. That would mean no reopening a package each time I used a wipe and, not worrying about making sure the top, or flap, is sealed down tight. No worries about dried up wipes…

The wipes were not very moist to begin with, however. I would have liked them to be a little more juicy, if you know what I mean. And yes, this is where the rest of the review goes downhill.

For $9, the box only contains 20 wipes. As you have read in my previous installments on Facial Wipe Wednesday, I have bemoaned the fact that a lot of facial wipes have dropped from a 30 count to a 25 count. So, I’m not happy at all getting just 20 wipes.

Next is the size of the wipe, itself…

Usually, wipes will cover my entire hand and even drape over the sides. Sephora’s facial wipe didn’t even cover my entire open palm/hand. Even using these, they felt extremely skimpy and too small to use on my entire face.

Next, these were the worst facial/makeup removal wipes I have ever used. I know, that’s a huge declaration to make. Considering the information given on the package…

I couldn’t even get these wipes to remove mineral foundation, much less regular mascara. I didn’t even attempt to experiment with these wipes on water-proof mascara because I had to work extremely hard to remove regular mascara, pencil eyeliner and shadow. Each time I used these wipes to remove makeup, I needing to use another cleanser to completely remove my eye and face makeup. This wipe wasn’t even large enough for me to clean my face sufficiently, much less work on removing eye makeup.

After my attempt to use the Sephora wipes, I felt my eyes stinging. I do not know what was causing this, actually and, it could have been that I was getting the product into my eyes from scrubbing them so hard but, it wasn’t pleasant for me, at all…

Normally, I use the facial wipes for 21 days before I write my review on them. These wipes didn’t get past 5 days. They were so ineffective that I stopped using them. On the fifth day, I used them to clean a no-makeup face. However, if they couldn’t even partially remove the makeup on the previous days, I didn’t have high hopes that my skin was actually clean with no makeup to remove! I was compelled to go ahead and get another face cleanser and cloth and re-wash my face.

Based on my experience with Sephora’s Express Eye Makeup Remover Wipes, I cannot recommend them to anyone.

Have you tried these wipes and, what was your experience?
