This year, the boyfriend and I are planning on more travels (hopefully our time would permit us because we already predicted that 2015 will be a busy year for us, career-wise) and that means that I need to learn how to pack quick and light, right? So I decided that I should be on the lookout now for an efficient makeup remover that could also save me some space; and while I was in SM Marilao last weekend, I dropped by at Watsons to just check things out and I found this makeup cleansing tissue pack!
The Pure Derm Makeup Cleansing Tissues contains 15 sheets, claims to remove makeup in one step (wiping, I guess? LOL), deep cleanses and moisturizes, and has green tea extract.
"Makeup Cleansing Tissues thoroughly remove eyeliner, shadow, lipstick, and blush, even waterproof mascara without skin irritation. This pocket type package is convenient to handle and use during trip or simple outdoor activities."
The Good Bits:
First of all, it costs less than 30 Pesos (if I remember it right) so definitely an inexpensive find; and it does save me space as I can just slip it in one of the pockets of my bag. The tissue, itself, doesn't break easily and one tissue was enough to remove 70% of the makeup on my face. It was able to remove the waterproof Maybelline eyeliner I had, so thumbs up to that. Not bad for something this inexpensive, no? It did not give me any breakouts, it does not have a funky smell, so I'm good!
The Bad Bits:
It wasn't able to FULLY remove the Happy Skin Eye Love View Pencil & Marker Eyebrow Duo on my brows, so too bad; but for its price it is a good catch. Nothing much I can complain.
It did remove a considerable amount of makeup on my face with just one tissue... Because that is the challenge I would like to give it. If you would look closely at the before and after photo, you will still see remnants of the brow product and some of the highlights on my inner eye corner; but it did its job good. So for that, I am giving this product a 7/10. Not the holy grail of all cleansing tissues, but it will do. And as part of my routine now, I remove first the eyeliner and all the other details in my makeup using this cleansing tissue and then go and wash my face using a facial cleanser or a facial scrub to remove all of the products off of my face completely. But since I would, mostly, use it for my travels with the boyfriend and I will not be wearing much makeup then, I guess this will do the job quite well.
