Review : Elf Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths & comparison to L'Oreal Demaq' Expert Make-up Removing Cloths


On Elf's website they state: 

"Gently and easily cleans skin to remove all traces of makeup and dirt, even waterproof mascara. Great for on-the-go travel. Gentle cloths are soft and soothing for even the most sensitive skin. Infused with Aloe Vera Extract for deep hydration and moisture. 20 Pre-moistened cloths included."

I decided to review these cleansing cloths, because I've noticed that nobody mentions them, although they're really good! Until now I was using L'Oreal Demaq Make-up Removing Cloths ( ), which are good at removing my make-up, but most of the times they make my eyes sting and sometimes they irritate the skin around my nose and mouth!

First of all, both makeup removing cloths cost about the same (Elf's £3.50 for 22 cloths and L'Oreal's around 4,5-5 for 25 cloths) ! They both remove my facial make-up equally well, but I don't know how they perform at removing eye make-up, as I always use a separate oil-based eye make-up remover for waterproof make-up! But I guess that if you're using a regular mascara, you'll be able to remove it with both cloths! :) However I wipe off any residues (from the eye make-up or from the oil-based eye make-up remover) with a make-up removing cloth, so I really like the fact that Elf's cloths don't make my eyes sting!

Another thing I like about Elf's cloths is that they contain Aloe Vera, which is soothing, therefore good for our skin! They also have a milder scent than L'Oreal's cloths! I find L'Oreal's cloths to have a quite intense scent, which I'm not very fond of!

So, bye-bye to L'Oreal Demaq Make-up Removing Cloths from me!! I like Elf Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths much better!!! :) You can find them here:
