Who:</strong> Gabriela Alford, Valentino Rockrunner Sneakers senior designer The Contender:</strong> Simple Skincare Cleansing Facial Wipes


"On an average day, I don't use tons of makeup u2014 I usually wear eyeliner, fill in my eyebrows, add some blush, and finish with lipstick. When I take off my makeup at night, I'm pretty loyal to my Caudalie makeup remover, and I'm not usually a fan of wipes</strong> u2014 but I'm always willing to try something new.


"The Simple wipes were pretty moist, but not overly so. It was pretty easy to remove my eye makeup</strong>. The wipes (thankfully) didn't make my eyes burn Valentino Flats at first, but a little bit after I used them, they felt a little bit irritated. However, I did think that they did a great job at removing my makeup.


"After using Valentino Rockstud Shoes the wipes, my skin didn't feel greasy or sticky</strong>. It felt pretty fresh u2014 but I did feel like I had just used makeup remover. My skin is pretty sensitive, so I usually wash my face after removing my makeup, but I didn't this time."



The Result:</strong> "I'm pretty loyal to my Caudalie remover, but these wipes did a great job of taking off my makeup u2014 I'd definitely recommend these to anyone looking for a good, effective cleansing wipe."
