At the beginning of my ‘quest’ to find cruelty free products for my beauty routine, I thought the hardest thing to find would be an eye makeup remover. Since my face cleanser also removes my makeup, I don’t need a full face makeup remover.
I’ve always had a hard time finding an eye makeup remover that works. My eyes are so sensitive. In fact, sensitive doesn’t even cover what happens with my eyes. I literally have to use eye drops every day just to keep the inflammation at bay. It’s almost like my eyes are allergic to almost everything. So, when I started using the L’Oreal Clean Artiste Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover years ago, I was so happy that it actually worked for me.
I used it for the last time a few months ago, when I switched to these RMS Beauty Makeup Remover Wipes. These were on the Sephora site, and I thought it wouldn’t hurt to try them out. These wipes are individually sealed in a foiled pouched. The cloth is infused with organic coconut oil, and they can be used with water.
And… that’s how simple it is. I use these to remove my eye makeup, and they work extraordinarily well. I have a video showing how I use them. Even though I was super excited to find a cruelty free eye makeup remover on my first try, there are a few cons.
These come in a box of 20 wipes, and it costs $16. That’s pretty expensive, but I have figured out how to make them last longer. Since each wipe comes in a pretty sturdy foil pouch, I just cut each wipe into two pieces. I use one piece and the save the other piece for the next night. When I put the saved piece back in the pouch, the foil folds over it tightly. There really isn’t a chance of it drying out anyways, since it’s infused with coconut oil.
That solution also solves the problem of another con, which is that it feels wasteful to use a product that is individually wrapped. Making the wipes last longer makes me feel a little less wasteful.
There are, of course, pros! I love that it has simple ingredients. I’ve tried to use coconut oil to remove my makeup before, but it never worked. I even tried the expensive Kopari coconut oil, and even that burned my eyes. For some reason, this organic coconut oil does the trick for me. The wipes are very soft and gentle on my eyes.
So, for now, this is my go-to eye makeup remover. I’m not on the market for a new one. If you’re looking for a gentle, organic, cruelty free eye makeup remover this is a really great one. Even though it’s pricey, you can definitely extend the life of a box to lower the cost a bit.
Have you ever tried these wipes before? What do you think of them?
