1. It takes off all makeup like a dream. 2-3 swipes over the most resistant liner and it all melts off.
2. The fabric of the tissue feels nice and soft against delicate under eye area, it also smells quite refreshing.
3. Does not dry out skin.
1. This will not take off your waterproof mascara. It will start to melt it a little bit, but it involves too much tugging & pulling at the lashes and it won't dissolve it completely. You might end up with raccoon eyes and broken lashes.
2. The pack does tend to dry out after 6 to 8 weeks of opening.
Will I re-purchase: For occasional use, yes. It is convenient to carry this, and it is very useful if you have a social engagement after office. Just wipe off old makeup, and apply a fresh layer. This is also very good in case some makeup emergency happens when touching up while travelling or saving time by cleansing on your way back from a function.
However do keep in mind that makeup removal tissues are not a complete solution by themselves to remove makeup. It is always better to follow up with a splash of water or use a toner like rosewater to ensure that pores don't get blocked.
