Review Overview

Makeup Remover Towelettes are essentially a gentle, water-soluble cleanser in premoistened cloth form. This basic formula will remove a light makeup application but is not capable of removing mascara, long-wearing foundation, or lip color. It is best for normal to slightly dry or slightly oily skin.


Removing your makeup has never been so easy or more nourishing for your skin. These soft, pre-moistened towelettes instantly lift away all traces of makeup, dirt and oil in one easy step. Conditions, hydrates and soothes skin without irritation. Removes waterproof and longwearing makeup, including long wearing lip color. Special botanical blend of aloe, cucumber and green tea nourishes skin as it gently lifts away makeup.

Brand Overview

Almay At-A-Glance

Strengths: An excellent assortment of mascaras; several exceptional foundation options to choose from; a phenomenal liquid eyeliner; a selection of good makeup removers.

Weaknesses: Some of the Intense i-color products do the exact opposite of enhancing eye color; mediocre blushes; “Smart Shade” products don’t automatically adapt to skin’s color as claimed.

Long a standby for those with sensitive skin seeking hypoallergenic products (though that term is unregulated and can be applied to any product, regardless of ingredients), Almay continues to refine its comprehensive makeup line. In early 2006 the company repackaged its old favorites, and also relaunched several new makeup items. Everything now has a sleek new look and color-coded packaging. We admit, the makeover is effective, not just product-wise but visually too.

Shopping this drugstore line is now much easier because of the clearly defined product and color family groupings. Lamentably, testers and trial sizes of the makeup are still scarce regardless of where you shop. Almay has always been a reliable line for foundations, powder, and mascara. Within its current lineup you'll find that remains true. Their foundations are better than ever, and still offer full, broad-spectrum sun protection and a mostly neutral palette. We also found their concealers and mascaras have improved, as have the pencil options. When it comes to shopping for makeup staples with state-of-the-art formulas, Almay has many winners, and some innovative surprises that its competitors would be wise to learn from.

I like Almay Oil-free Make Up Remover Towelettes

While I agree this doesn't remove all my makeup, the wipes are soft and don't leave a residue. To me the value of wipes is getting the make up off of most of my face when there's no sink and I can't stand it for one more minute, e.g. the drive home after work or a party. Those are the times I appreciate that the wipes are soft, and more important, that my skin doesn't feel sticky. I tried many brands and also liked Yes to Cucumbers, but I like Almay better.
