Epielle Makeup Wipes

Please don't forget to enter the $75 gift card to SkinCareRx (click here to enter)! It ends July 4th at 11:59 pm PST.

Around October/November of last year, 2009, I bought three makeup wipes from Epielle (click here to see the other things I bought or received at the Korean Festival). It's not a popular brand but you will see this often in a lot of stores or at least I have... hehe~ I think I will review these since I'm on my third wipes. :)

Product Review: Epielle Cleansing Tissues in Green Tea, Aloe Vera, and Cucumber
Where can you purchase this: smaller stores but I got mine at a festival
Price: $1-2 but I got mine for 3 for $5 I believe

Made in Korea

Information on the back: Before I start, I don't have the package for the Green Tea one. I threw that one away but I believe it's the same one as the Aloe Vera.

Make-up Remover Cleansing Tissues have special dirt-trapping fibers that gently cleanse away dirt, oil, make-up, and even the toughest waterproof mascara. With the convenience of pre-moistened cloths, they work in seconds to leave you feeling smooth, fresh and completely clean-anytime, anywhere!

The cucumber one had different information.

Epielle Cucumber Cleansing Tissues have special dirt-trapping fibers that gently cleanse away dirt, oil make-up and even the toughest waterproof mascara. With the addition of Cucumber extract, the convenient pre-moistened tissues not only provide exceptional cleaning, but also leave your skin feeling smooth and refreshed. Freshen up without water-anytime, anywhere!

All of them have...

* Hypoallergenic
* Won't clog pores & moisturizes skin
* Safe for contact lens wearers
* Oil Free
* Refreshing

Direction on the back: Gently wipe face, using both side of cloth to deep clean and refresh, leaving no residue. Best if used within 45 days, after opening. Keep package tightly close, and store in a cool, dry place when not in use. After use, dispose of cloth in a trash receptacle. (do not flush)

Ingredients: There's a slight difference between the Green Tea/Aloe Vera and Cucumber. I will post both. This one is Green Tea/Aloe Vera.
This is for Cucumber.

My thoughts: When I first used the Green Tea, I liked it but towards the end of using the wipes I wasn't happy. For some odd reason, towards the end the wipes were dried. It was tough on my skin and it tugged. That doesn't help my wrinkle faced... lol~ :P I was kind of skeptical when it came to using the other two I have left, Aloe Vera and Cucumber. I was wrong!... lol~ The Aloe Vera one didn't dried out towards the end. Either I didn't close the Green Tea one well or I just had a bad bunch. I would like to think it's the second... lol~ :X I also noticed the wipes of the Cucumber one is different from the other two. I'm not too sure why but the Cucumber is more softer. It's also more flexible. In all, I think they're good wipes. They remove the makeup well! :)

* Cheap.
* Made from Korea (being biased here... lol~).
* Removes the makeup well.
* Easy to carry around.
* Cucumber has softer wipes.
* Cucumber one smells like cucumber.

* Green Tea dried out towards the end.
* Some have strong scent.

Would I buy this again? Yes.

I will talk a little about the different wipes... hehe~

Green Tea:
* It felt nice in the beginning.
* Dried out towards the end.
* It had a scent but I wasn't too keen on it.

Aloe Vera:
* It felt nice to the skin.
* It didn't dry out.
* The scent wasn't strong.

* The wipes are the softest of the bunch.
* The wipes are made different than the other bunch.
* The wipes are flexible/stretchable.
* Smells like cucumber.
* The scent can get strong at times.

I'm going to end with couple of nail polishes I got in the past few months.
This is Nicole by OPI in Fresh Squeezed! I've been into peachy/coral colors... hehe~ I think the color is hot and do I need more in this color. Nope!... lol~ :X I got this free through the Seventeen magazine. They had a special towards the end of May for a free Nicole by OPI nail polish at Ulta. I believe it's over. Sorry my bad I should have posted this earlier!!!

I received two Etude House nail polishes from a friend.
This one is in #PK006. It's a metallic, pastel pink color.
This one is in #PK008. It's a light pink with glitters.

Thank you friend for these!!! :)

Hey Alyssa! :)

oOoOo! I've seen those wipes before! hehe I never thought to try them out before, but now, after reading your review, if I ever pick them up, I will definitely get the cucumber ones, since you say they're the softest of the bunch! ;P Wahh! I adore your new polishes! I really dig that orange Nicole color! hehe and i LOVE the pretty pinks you got from Etude House! Such lovely shades and they're just so girly, cute, and princessy! I love it! :D

Hope you've been well! I really stink at commenting blogs bc I fall behind :/

I really like the nail color swatches! I have been using the Neutrogena make up remover and it's okay... wish it removes mascara and stuff like that better though.

Makeup wipes are a godsend when I'm too lazy/tired to wash my face...hehe. Thanks for another awesome review! Think I'll keep my eye out for the aloe vera or cucumber one. Love your new polishes! And dang, you always have the scoop on Seventeen mag freebies. Maybe I need to order me a subscription so I don't miss out...hee hee. *^_^*

I tried the face mask from Epielle before and liked the softness of the cloth. I haven't seen these wipes though but I don't think I will buy them. Love the nail polish colors, esp. the orange one :)

Shop N' Chomp said...

Ok, what? Freebie forums? I had no idea these existed. Care to share which one(s) are your faves? :)

yay, alyssa! how i've missed your reviews. i'm glad they're back again. :D i see a lot of makeup wipes similar to these at places here like fashion 5 and reflection. i've always been curious about them. i've always wanted to get them because i like the price very much. i think they run more than $3, i think. now that you reviewed them, i'll give them a go. :)

if i find something similar to the cucumber one, i'm pretty sure i'll like it. i love the smell of cucumber. hehe... i used to have a toner from the filipino store that smelled like cucumber. it's very refreshing. for some reason, the smell kinda wakes me up too. lol.

ooh. love the orange nicole nail polish. the color indeed is HOT. :D would be perfect for the summer. i like the pink etude house too. :D

haha... yeah, for a while i've been fiddling with my new phone. i'm sure once it gets slightly old, it probably won't get as much attention unless there's a call or text. then again, with facebook and other apps in it, i probably will not be able to put down the phone baby. we'll see. hehe...

now that i've read about your makeup wipes review with the green tea one included, i'm gonna go get myself some iced green tea. it's so dang hot. hehehe... take care. :)
