These cleansing cloths are an option for those with normal to dry skin. The emollient, emulsifying ingredients of the solution the cloths are steeped in are capable of removing makeup (including waterproof mascara as claimed), but since people tend to be more zealous when using cleansing cloths, we suspect many will find that using a regular makeup remover with a cotton swab or pad does a more efficient, gentler job and since you'll be less likely to tug and pul around the eyes (which contributes to eye-area sagging, so be very gentle and pull as little as humanly possible!).

Because these cloths contain fragrance, they're not the best option for sensitive skin, and fragrance is iffy for use around the eyes, this really should be fragrance free. Last, there isn't anything particularly "deluxe about these cloths as they're not drastically different from Olay's other cleansing cloths they sell.

Pros:
  • Gentle cleansing formula, yet capable of removing all types of makeup.
  • Moisturizes as it cleanses, so skin is left feeling soft.
Cons:
  • Contains fragrance, which is problematic for skin especially around the eye area.

Claims

These pre-moistened cloths wipe away dirt, oil, and even the most stubborn make-up—like waterproof mascara! They’re infused with the essence of honeysuckle and white tea for an extra pick-me-up. And they come in a resealable packet, so you can use them on the go so you’re ready whenever you need a refreshing clean.

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.
