Happy Friday!!! Just wanted to do a quick review of a few e.l.f. products: makeup remover cleansing cloths, eye makeup remover pads and nail polish remover pads. I only like and recommend ONE out of the three products above, so continue reading to see why!
Studio Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths:
I really like these makeup removing cloths! Removes all traces of makeup and dirt, even waterproof mascara. A lot of makeup remover towelettes cause a slight irritation around my eyes when removing my mascara but these don't! Which is why they are one of my favorites, they are very gentle on my skin. Plus they are a great value especially if you're using them everyday, 20 pre-moistened cloths for only $3. My second makeup removing towelettes are from Yes To Carrots but those are $6 for 30 wipes.
Essential Eye Makeup Remover Pads:
These pads are specific for removing eye makeup, includes 18 pads for $1. At first these didn't feel much different than the cloths, except that they are smaller. Until the looked up the ingredients: PARABENS galore! If you don't know why parabens are potentially bad for you read Jenn Staz's post: Paraben what? Demystifying the toxic cosmetic ingredient. In summary, parabens are chemicals used as preservatives which keeps your makeup products from growing excess bacteria and fungus that may lead to certain cancers. Although the FDA has not found a direct link that parabens cause cancer, I try my best to avoid them and I would not recommend this product!
Essential Nail Polish Remover Pads:
I had high hopes for these nail polish remover pads but I think they are horrible! They did not remove my creme nail polish easily (forget about glitter). I was only able to remove nail polish from 3 fingers with one pad, and it got kind of messy. The scent is fine but they left a very greasy feeling on my fingers. I think the only benefit is these are great for travel, no one wants to carries around a bottle of nail polish remover. The price is super cheap, $1 for 18 pads. Unforunately one pad didn't remove polish on all ten fingers, so I was disappointed.
Have you tried any of these e.l.f. products??? I think you get what you pay for, which is probably why I didn't like the ones that are only $1. A lot of e.l.f. products are either hit or miss, but not much you can ask for cheap makeup. Thanks so much for reading and I hope you have a very good weekend!
