This is my review on makeup removers I've used and what I have thought about them.

1) MAC Makeup wipes--- I really love MAC has a brand but I really dislike their make-up wipes.
Why? They are too oily for me, which on a whole that may be what make-up wipes should be. However, I have oily skin and having a oily face and removing make-up with a oily product, doesn't work for me. They really do work, don't get me wrong, but they are just not for my oily skin. I don't remember if they have any allergic effect on me, because I have used them a long time ago and the only time I used it now is to remove make-up at any MAC store whenever I swatch a product. I have a 48 pack at home now which is for my sister and has completely dried out (she has had it for over 2 years now, I believe). However, I think even though it's dried out, its still has good use, because she stills uses it (lol's). Nevertheless, it can be used in Back 2 MAC!! (thumbs up)

2) Cold Cream--- this is basically a cream which removes make-up and gives the skin a deep clean of any makeup residue. It thoroughly deep cleans the skin without leaving it feeling dry and makes your skin look and feels soft and clean. Its removes any form of dirt and make-up build up on the skin and even stubborn mascara. Contains cleansing emollients that soften as it deep cleans the skin so that the skin feels smooth and not dry and tight.
This product, I absolutely love, I heard about it from a YouTube guru and decided to try it couple weeks ago and it definitely does what it says. I had purchased the Walgreen's brand but took it back because it was absolutely too oily for me even though Walgreen's brand compared theirs to Pond's Cold Cream. I went to my dollar store and found it for way less than the price of the Walgreen's brand and Ponds and decided to give it a try and loved the Family Dollar brand. It isn't oily as the others but it has some oil based ingredients in it such as mineral oil and beeswax. This brand gives more of a creamy consistency and definitely works for me. Using a cold cream, you either have to remove with a warm face cloth or tissue. I remove with the handy dandy baby wipes.

3)Perfect Purity Facial Solutions--- I found this product at my local Family Dollar (dollar store). I am in love with it. They are facial cleansing and make-up remover wipes. They absolutely get the job done in removing the make-up and leaves the face feeling soft and fresh. They contain vitamin E and a quick and easy way in removing makeup. They are not oily. They definitely deep clean the pores and make my skin feel soft and smooth to the touch. My only disadvantage was I only saw them in packs of 30, which was the refill package and I can't find the bigger packs. I really love the smell of them also, they have a cucumber smell. Being that they remove stubborn mascara very well too, one wipe will remove just about everything from the face. They are cheap in price for there terrific usage ($2/per pack).

4) Baby wipes--- Baby wipes are a terrific make-up remover, I have been using them for almost most of the time since I have started into make-up big time and they remove most of the make-up from my face and skin. They are easy and convenient and very cheap. However, they are not the best for deep cleaning the face of your make-up and the stubborn mascara. They definitely leave the face feeling fresh and smooth. They weren't made to remove makeup but I on the other hand found them as that use being that they are very cheap and I can definitely stock up on them for great prices.

5)Maybelline Eye Makeup Remover- This definitely gets the job done at removing eye makeup and get the stubborn mascaras as well but the product is very oily and that's a let down for me.
