We'd be lying if we said there was never a time we felt too tired (and admittedly lazy) to wash off our makeup before bed with a traditional cleanser while hovering over the sink. It happens to the best of us, and there's no shame in it. When the lather and rinse routine just isn't happening for whatever reason, makeup remover wipes (also known as facial cleansing wipes) come in clutch.
Makeup remover wipes are a great way to remove makeup, and most varieties go a step further to remove surface dirt and impurities as well. Some even deliver moisturizing properties to prevent your skin from drying out. And while makeup remover wipes shouldn't replace your everyday face wash, there's nothing wrong with relying on them when you're in a pinch, especially when the alternative is sleeping in your makeup (don't do it!).
Below, the best makeup remover wipes to try now.
