Natracare Cleansing Make-up Removal Wipes for Sensitive Skin | Review

As any beauty blogger will attest, we have a tendency to go through an inordinate number of makeup removing wipes and bottles of makeup remover. The rife succession of swatches require gentle and effective makeup removers that thoroughly, effectively and gently remove everything without excessive rubbing that will irritate the skin. Irritated skin must settle down before commencing the swatch-fast, and therefore it's imperative to use gently products that don't protract the length of time necessary to swatch. This is to say nothing of the importance of using gentle makeup removers for the face and eyes– especially if you have sensitive eyes or skin. My eyes are very sensitive, and any makeup remover that stings just isn't worth it to me– no matter how effective they may be at removing even the most resilient formulas.

Natracare Cleansing Make-up Removal Wipes for Sensitive Skin is my latest discovery, and I am thoroughly sold on these wipes because they are simultaneously ultra-gentle and highly effective at removing my makeup.

According to Natracare,

Rule number one of a good skincare regime is to cleanse the skin properly, removing all make-up and grime. The last thing you want is a product that could be putting more on to your skin than it is taking off.

Unlike conventional wipes, we use only the best organic and natural ingredients, making them incredibly gentle on your skin.

Infused with the organic essential oils of almond, apricot and chamomile, Natracare Cleansing Make-Up Removal Wipes leave your skin moisturised, cleansed and refreshed naturally. The soft and strong organic cotton cloth is gentle but effective, removing even waterproof mascara and lipstick.

Many conventional cleansing wipes contain a host of harsh chemicals including formaldehyde-releasing chemicals, foaming ingredients, parabens and synthetic fragrances, all linked to irritation. Dermatologists have long voiced concern about these ingredients and their possible effect on the skin.

Formulated for sensitive skin, the wipes are dermatologically and opthalmologically tested and free from all the types of ingredients women have ever been concerned about putting on their skin.

Natracare Makeup wipes are the first in the world to receive the COSMOS organic standard. This high seal of approval takes the worry out of reading ingredients lists.

Natracare products are never tested on animals, nor do they contain any animal ingredients or raw materials processed with any animal products.
I decided to put my Natracare Wipes to the ultimate test: removing my Tom Ford Lip Color Matte swatches. Not only is this lipstick formula itself incredibly long-wearing, but the more pigmented shades have a tendency to stain the lips and skin. I left these swatches on my arm for a sustained period of time while I took many pictures, and therefore I knew that the darker shades would stain my arm. I was actually shocked to see that a natural cleansing wipe could be so gentle, and yet capable of removing my lipstick swatches so effectively. As I suspected, the darker shades did leave behind a little skin staining, but that is to be expected. It effortlessly removed the lipsticks, and left my skin soft, smooth and moisturized.

When I use these wipes to remove all of the makeup on my face it removes every trace gently, and my eyes never sting in the least bit. I'm thrilled with the results, and will be purchasing more before I have used the last one in this pack!

  1. I wonder if they are also in the Walgreens stores. I hate paying shipping!

    1. I'm not certain, but it would definitely be worth checking. Though both and Amazon have $35.00 purchase free shipping. I usually just wait and place orders when I have enough to order so that I get free shipping– because I hate paying for shipping as well!

  2. Luckily, there’s a solution for those of us who want something gentle, efficient and cost effective: the reusable makeup remover cloth. For the past month, I’ve been using the BSL Natural Makeup Cloth ($20 online This unique cleansing cloth is soft on skin and tough on makeup. The antibacterial fabric consists of dense, wedge-shaped microfibers that pick up oil, dirt and makeup by just adding water. It also works to refine and improve the texture of skin by removing dead skin cells. The benefits have won me over, and I don’t think I’ll be turning back any time soon.

    1. Hi Keri,

      Sorry for the slow response! I found your comment in the SPAM folder :-(

      I have never tried those, but they sound amazing! Soft on the skin and touch on makeup sounds just like what I would love! Thanks for the suggestion and the in-depth description!
