Thought I’d do a little review on these Eye Make-Up Remover Pads With Aloe Vera by Spa which I got from Home Bargains. I always get the Spa face wipes as I like them a lot and I seen these Eye Make-Up Remover Pads when stocking up on wipes last month and thought I would give them a go to see if they work on stubborn eye make-up. I really can’t remember how much they were – I think it was something like £1 for a twin pack and there are 30 pads in one pack so you get 60 pads altogether, a great little bargain hey.
The wipes are made in Israel and they are suitable for all skin types. They are also alcohol free so they are unlikely to dry out the skin and claim to be pH balanced although it doesn’t list the exact pH levels on the pack. The packs don’t have the cruelty-free bunny either and it doesn’t state whether or not these have been tested on animals so I’m assuming they have been but I may be wrong.
The pads come in a small lilac packet which has a resealable label to prevent moisture loss. The pads themselves are quite small, square-shaped, very moist and they have a nice subtle fragrance too. I’ve been using these for a couple of weeks now, just a little over a month to remove my mascara and eyeliner and I use about 2-3 pads each time depending how much I’m wearing. They remove mascara well from the eyes and they don’t irritate my eyes, or burn or sting which is good. I haven’t tried them with waterproof mascara or eyeliner yet as I don’t use them but I reckon they will work quite well.
I was also using them on my entire face and neck to remove my foundation, concealer, powder and blusher from my face and they do remove every trace of dirt and oil. For a while, I actually preferred the small pads over the full-sized wipes but I soon changed my mind when I broke out in blemishes and drier skin a week or two later.
The Eye Remover Pads do contain perfume in the ingredients list and my sensitive skin does usually break out when using products with perfume in so I’m not surprised I got a few blemishes. From now on, I will only use the pads to remove eye makeup and I won’t be using them to cleanse the rest of my skin.
