Am at a wedding next weekend and will be camping. I am planning on wearing quite a lot of mascara as well as a bit of the usual (concealer, blush, eyeshadow) so was wondering if anyone knows of any wipes which are good at taking make up off? I have a suspicion I'll be waking up and feeling a bit rough anyway so the last thing I also want is make up from the day before caked into my face! Don't normally wear much make up and when I do, the stuff to remove it also involves water so am not clued up on alternatives. Thanks!
Ah look this is always a bit of a tricky one. If I were you I'd get some specific eye-makeup remover wipes (Simple do some in a tiny little packet so its barely more packing space) then use normal ones for the rest of your face. Hell, for a one-weekend job you could use the tiny simple eye ones for the whole of your face.
I have some of the wipes (very old though!) you can get from Boots but they are super greasy. Can wipes really be any good? We are camping in someone's garden so there will be very limited facilities plusI'llbepissed so I want something quick but effective!
Have read good things re the Simple one's and the Neutrogena too but never used any wipes ever so can't speak from experience!
The johnsons baby wipes with the lotion in (pink and green packet) are brilliant for this, I always use them to take my make up off because they remove it all including waterproof mascara and as they have a bit of lotion in they sort of wash and moisturise your face too.
They do work, yes. I sometimes need to use a second or 3rd wipe and just keep wiping till its clean. Sure, I prefer a proper cleanse but when I'm at the inlaws (crap bathroom facilities and can't be bothered packing muslins etc) I tend to just use wipes...
