Review - Visine Total Eye Soothing Wipes

  • Cleans eye area & removes makeup
  • Removes irritants from around the eyes
I am a big fan of eye-cleaning wipes, mostly because I tend to a) wear a lot of eye makeup and then b) not take a shower before bed and forget to take it off. At least if I have a convenient wipe, I can make an effort at being a real human who doesn't wake up the next morning with mascara crusted to her face. These Visine wipes come in a handy little tub to keep them nice and moist, and are pleasantly thick, meaning you can easily use both sides (which, when you've got a serious amount of shadow and liner on, might be necessary). The thickness does make it a bit difficult to really get in and get the lower lid liner off, but this is negligible. 

You could get a lot of the same benefits from other makeup-removal wipes, but if you have very sensitive eyes, it might be worth trying these out since they are specifically intended for use on your eyes. The drawback, of course, is that you can't really use them on the rest of your face (I tried, and it felt weird).

I found the pads to be quite dry. To use I have to wet each one under the faucet before using. It's not so great about removing waterproof mascara.

I've actually been noticing as I go through the pack that they are drying out - maybe they need to make their container more air-tight! Thanks for the comment.
