Simple's Eye Make-Up Remover Pads have had a makeover from their previous version, and there's good news: The new formula is an improvement, bumping this up to a higher rating.

These pads are steeped in a no-frills solution that includes emollients and a silicone to remove makeup. They're fragrance free and they do not include the formaldehyde-releasing preservative 2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1,3-diol, which was present in the original version, so they're a much more gentle option for skin around the eyes and sensitive skin.

These pads are effective in removing eyeshadow, non-waterproof foundation, regular mascara, and eyeliner, but it does take a bit of extra effort to remove waterproof formulas, which is why this isn't getting our highest rating (plus, Simple claims that it can remove waterproof makeup as well).

Still, these pads are an easy and convenient way to take off makeup at the end of the day, especially if you're traveling!

Pros:
  • Fragrance-free, very gentle formula.
  • Effectively removes non-waterproof makeup.
  • Convenient for on-the-go makeup removal.
Cons:
  • Requires extra effort to remove waterproof makeup formulas.
