It can be challenging to pack every essential you need when it’s time to travel, especially in this day and age of TSA regulations and rules. Pads and wipes are always a good choice over bottles of eye makeup remover and cotton pads when you’re getting through security, so I purchased the e.l.f. Essentials Eye Makeup Remover Pads during a recent Total Beauty deal.
First off, the pads are really small, which isn’t a problem if you don’t use a large amount of eye makeup. However, since it’s me, and I pile it on, they were way too small for me to use effectively. Using one pad for both eyes was simply out of the question, and I had a hard time getting everything off using both the front and the back.
Secondly, they BURNED. AHHHHH…FIRE ON MY EYES! It was not good. Not good at all.
Needless to say, I threw them in my drawer, where they will languish until I forget how much it burned, and I will discover them someday and try it again. I’m nothing if not honest.
Skip these. Try a drugstore brand wipe instead. Saving a dollar or two isn’t worth it when it comes to burning eyeballs.
