These cleansing cloths are a very effective, fairly gentle way to remove all types of makeup. Ideal for use while traveling, these soft cloths can be used around the eyes and are capable of removing mascara, including waterproof formulas.

What keeps these cloths from earning our top rating is the inclusion of fragrance. Fragrance isn't skin care and definitely not good to use so close to the eyes, but the amount is low and likely not of much consequence, especially if you opt to splash your face with water after using one of the cloths.

Fresh Effects S'Wipe Out! Refreshing Make-Up Removal Cloths are suitable for all skin types except sensitive.

Pros:
  • Fairly gentle makeup removal.
  • Quickly removes all types of makeup, including waterproof and long-wearing formulas.
  • Convenient for use on-the-go.
Cons:
  • Contains fragrance, which can be a problem for all skin types and isn't good for use around the eyes.

Brand Overview

Olay At-A-Glance

Starting decades ago with the now-classic Oil of Olay, this brand now offers an extensive range of skin-care products sold at drugstores and mass-market stores. Today's Olay lineup for those concerned about staving off the effects of aging skin is impressive, comprising their Regenerist, Pro X, and Total Effects lines. All of these (and several other Olay products) contain the B vitamin niacinamide. As you might expect, the claims made for it are inflated, but niacinamide is a very helpful ingredient for all skin types, capable of exerting multiple benefits.

In fact, perhaps the biggest complaint about Olay is that there are a number of repetitive formulas within and between the sub-brands make this line confusing and tricky to shop! Still, there is a lot to like about this drugstore stalwart, with its main drawback being a few formulas containing fragrance or other ingredients that have the potential to cause irritation.
