Soap & Glory Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths

Makeup Removing Wipes: Soap & Glory Style

Soap & Glory Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths ($6.99 for 25 or $0.28/cloth) are slowly becoming one of my favorite makeup removing wipes! Each sheet is well-saturated but not overly so, and the cloth itself is soft and thick enough not to fray or pull when used. It has a slight floral scent, but it’s subtle and I don’t find that it lingers for long. What I like most about these sheets is how refreshing they are. While they’ll get off the majority of your makeup (but may struggle with the most long-lasting products, like MAC Liquidlasts), I really love these for a face wipe-down post-gym, because they have no sticky residue or leave your skin feeling parched.

Ingredients: Amyl Cinnamal, Cetearyl Isononanoate, Ceteareth-20, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Glucosamine HCL, Algae Extract, Urea, Polyquaternium-37, Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, PPG-1 Trideceth-6, Ceteareth-12, Benzoic Acid,Citric Acid, Disodium EDTA, Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Extract, Parfum (Fragrance), Dipropylene Glycol, Glycerin, Sodium ydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Dehydroacetic Acid, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Aqua (Water)

The branded packaging is cute, and I like that it has the plastic flip top — it makes keeping your wipes moist way easier than if it simply had a sticker flap. By the by, if your wipes (of any brand) ever dry out, put a little water (maybe 1-2 oz.), close it up, turn it upside down, and wait a day. I’ve been known to forget to close a package or two, and this technique always saves me from having to throw them away! (And yes, they work just as well as they always did!)

My still reigning favorite for all stubborn makeup are MAC Wipes (slightly cheaper, when bought in bulk — $0.26 each), but I think these are better for my post-workout needs, as they feel a little more refreshing. For swatching and removing swatches, I’ll stick with my MAC Wipes as they remove even stubborn makeup quite well.

Recommendation:  If you can track these down (always sold out at Target; plus Soap & Glory is moving out of Target–said they’ll be in other doors in the U.S. in the fall, but no real word yet…), they’re definitely worth a try.  They remove makeup well without leaving behind any sticky residue–instead, they leave you feeling clean and refreshed!

    I thought these smelled like kitty litter when I used them at first.

  2. I have these wipes and I do really like them! they’re so nice for getting make-up off.
    But thinking the MAC ones are cheaper in bulk makes me think it might be worth buying those since you get more!

  3. Emily

    Do the MAC wipes leave any residue?
    I feel like it defeats the purpose for me when I have to wipe off residue after I wipe the makeup off.

    • I don’t find it leaves residue, but it’s a very saturated wipe, so my skin does feel wet for 30 seconds or so after using one!

  4. Mia

    though I have found several wipes are effective, I just feel they are terribly wasteful and bad for the environment :(

  5. I love the MAC ones but I still HATE HATE HATE the smell!!! ARGH! I ended up switching a couple months ago to coconut oil and I LOVE it. Leaves skin soft, NOT oily (no scent at all) and removes just about anything!

    • I usually use shu’s cleansing oil for makeup on a day to day basis, but I do loveee wipes for removing swatches (especially lip swatches!!)

  6. Oana

    I like wipes that i KNOW will take off every last bit of makeup, if they don’t do that, my pores my get clogged, blah blah…so basically they’re not doing their job! For a post workout refresher, I MUCH prefer a spritz of tea tree water, or wiping down the oilies with some Witch Hazel (I know, i know, not the most appealing smell, but it doesnt last long so who cares?).

    I’d say stick to MAC wipes for makeup removal or Olay wipes as a cheaper alternative :)

    i find wipes to be not only wasteful but harmful to the environment. I found that unfiltered olive oil works best for taking everything off without leaving a greasy residue. And the best part .. my skin benefits .. so it’s heavy duty in taking stubborn makeup off without stripping the natural oils.

    I think I’ve just found my new favorite makeup reviewer. :D Do you like Revlon Colorstay? I’ve been meaning to try that since I heard it’s good for combo skin which I have..

    • I haven’t tried it, but I’ve heard that it’s very comparable to MAC Studio Fix Fluid, which I’ve used. I used it for about 2-3 years, actually! It has a very nice matte finish and nice medium coverage. I’ve heard ColorStay is pretty much the same in terms of the matte finish with medium coverage.
