Team Zoe’s Favorite Makeup-Remover Wipes


Quick-fix face-cleansing wipes are lifesavers for a number of reasons, but mostly for helping us keep our resolution not to go to bed with our makeup on. And we keep a pack in our bag all summer long for easy, refreshing pick-me-ups. Ahead, the all-star formulas our editors swear by.

Arcona Triad Toner Pads



"Arcona's Triad pads are life-changing—I've been a die-hard fan since they launched."

—Rachel Zoe, Editor in Chief

Make-Up Remover Pads


Serge Lutens

"These aren't cheap, but they're a cleanser and a moisturizer in one, which is particularly handy when you're on the go (or on a plane). They're gentle, effective and totally worth the splurge."

—Nicky Deam, Editorial Director

Aveeno Ultra-Calming Makeup Removing Wipes



"I have sensitive, acne-prone skin, so I love that these wipes are non-comedogenic."

—Christian David, Art Director

Simple Micellar Makeup Remover Wipes



"These saved me when I couldn't use any skincare products for a month. They're extremely gentle and do a great job of removing grime—including waterproof mascara—leaving my face fresh and clean without that tight, tingly feeling."

—Amy Lee, Associate Fashion Editor

Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleansing Cloths



"I love these because they're soft and super gentle. They wipe away dirt, oil and makeup without irritating my skin."

—Stephanie Montes, Senior Beauty Editor

Yes To Face Cleanser Towelettes



"I travel frequently on weekends and always pack these in my carry-on. They effectively remove makeup without bugging my redness-prone skin."

—Kristi Mikesky, Features Editor

Pond’s Original Fresh Wet Cleansing Towelettes



"I swear by these cleansing towelettes. They leave you fresh-faced without a greasy residue and only cost five dollars."

—Claudia Graziano, Social Media Coordinator

Burt’s Bees Cucumber And Sage Facial Cleansing Towelettes



"I'm really sensitive to smell, so products I use every day—like face lotion, under-eye cream and makeup remover—must be unscented or smell really, really good. I'm obsessed with Burt's Bees cucumber and sage wipes because they have that spa scent that instantly makes you feel relaxed."

—Shannon Nash, Jewelry & Accessories Editor
