Of the facial cleansing wipes we evaluated, Olay's 4-in-1 Daily Facial Cloths are the best for removing makeup. They're also gentle enough for all skin types, although you'll need to rinse your face after use, and particularly sensitive users may experience some stinging around the eyes. They also contain parabens as preservatives.
Great for travel. Olay's 4-in-1 Daily Facial Cloths start out dry, so you don't have to worry about them drying out once you open the package. Wet them just before use and they'll do a great job of removing just about any eye makeup -- the only product they occasionally miss is the toughest waterproof mascara -- but they're still gentle on most skin. "The fragrance-free, Vaseline-based (petrolatum) formula is exceptionally gentle, yet thoroughly removes makeup," writes skin care expert Paula Begoun. Each cloth has a smooth side for cleansing and a textured side with embedded microbeads for gentle exfoliating.
Requires rinsing. Although Olay's 4-in-1 Daily Facial Cloths are gentle for most skin, their petrolatum base and detergent cleansing agent mean you do have to rinse your face after using them. (That's not the case with all facial wipes.) Still, most user reviewers say that as long as you rinse, these wipes leave your face feeling clean and refreshed. Most also say they're irritation-free around the eyes, but we did find enough complaints about stinging that those who are particularly sensitive should beware -- and a few users are (understandably) unhappy that these wipes contain endocrine-disrupting parabens as preservatives.
Skin care expert Paula Begoun reviews and rates thousands of skin care and makeup products. Olay's 4-in-1 Daily Facial Cloths for sensitive skin receive a rating of Best; she says they remove makeup quickly and thoroughly, and are still gentle and soothing to your skin.
