Since I was out of town last Thursday I wasn't able to do a Beauty Product Showdown piece. But I am back and today I decided to do a theme I haven't done before, Makeup Remover. I used to use Macs Makeup removing wipes but geez there expensive on a college student budget so I decided to see which drug store make-up is better at removing my eye makeup in particular-I usually wear mascara and bottom eyeliner.
So let's see who is battling in this weeks Beauty Product Showdown!
We have Clean & Clear Facial Cleansing Wipes (~$7.99)
vs. Almay's Oil-free makeup remover pads. (15 ct-$1.14)
I swiped the wipe across my eye twice in two areas to see how it removed my eye makeup plus over my upper lip. As you can see it took off a lot of my makeup. The wipe has a nice light smell to it and doesn't leave your eyelid oily or sticky at all. Honestly I use half the wipe on my eye and the other half removes all my face makeup.
The almay pad is really small. Like you have to use one side for one eye and the other for the other eye
Just like the Clean & Clear wipe I did two swipes on one eye and removed my lipstick on my bottom lip. Although this is oil-free I did notice my eyelids were really sticky and shiny after I used this pad. It also has a nice light smell to it though.
Here are my eyes after two swipes of each wipe. The left side was used with the Almay wipe. As you can see there is still mascara on my upper lid and it smeared some of the liner to my lower eyelid. On the otherhand, the Clean & Clear wipe took alot more of the mascara off and my bottom eye lid looks better than the one I used with Almay.
Overall. if it came down to it and Almay vs Clean & Clear went into the ring for a beauty product showdown Clean & Clear would win hands down! Not only did they remove makeup better but they didn't leave my eyelids sticky and weird after! For all you college students I suggest to just stock up when the drug stores have the B1g1 50% off sale to score good deals on them! Till then I am def sticking with Clean & Clear
Where to find- Any drug stores-CVS, Walgreens, Walmart or Target
