What is the verdict? Is it better to take your makeup off with them before bed than sleep in your makeup?

It's always better to take your makeup off before going to bed, no matter what you use.

Use wipes if you have to in order to get certain kids of makeup off your eyes, etc but it's better to get the wipe residue off with some kind of cleanser, with water being the final step in "removal" process.

Of course you shouldn't leave makeup on your skin overnight.

When I was young, less wise and an avid drinker, removing makeup before bed or in the shower the next morning was purely dependent on how drunk I was.
Either way I have never used makeup removal wipes, soap, water and a wash cloth worked well for me.


OP: It is your choice how to complete this task, it is your face, your skin, your products and resources to get stated task completed.

Wipes are easy - I get it! I keep a stash of baby wipes, moistened with rose and orange blossom water to use as an option for the face wipes. But I like micellar water better for removing makeup when I am feeling lazy.

All I know is that they irritate my skin. Check the ingredient label for irritants to your skin.

Also, the wipes themselves are not as comfortable on my skin as a washcloth. And then there is the disposable issue. Our landfills are already full of other disposable items. It just seems to me that using a gentle cleanser, water and a washcloth is a better choice for facial cleansing.

Yes, don't go to sleep in your makeup! You'll end up looking like a panda in the morning!

I like to take my makeup off, using the wipes, as soon as I can, really. I don't sit around with a face full of makeup all night, if I'm just hanging around the house.

I never use a washcloth. What do you do with a damp washcloth afterwards? Do you put it in the wash, or dry it out to use again? I wouldn't fancy using a washcloth a second time, if it had been hanging around, being damp.

I use witch hazel and some disposable cotton face pads to remove my makeup before going to bed.

I use that as a toner, actually. But I wear waterproof mascara and eyeliner, and it doesn't remove those. So I have to use the wipes for that.

I use it for toning and removing makeup.

I don't wear waterproof mascara or eyeliner, and only wear a minimal amount of makeup on most days, so it works well for me.
