Makeup Remover Cloths seem to be the latest trend in makeup removal as they are designed to remove your makeup with only water, no cleanser needed.
Obviously I was intrigued by how well they worked, so when Rachel over at Helpless Whilst Drying reviewed the W7 cloth I picked it up when we were shopping on her recommendation.
The next day in Primark I saw their version so picked this up too to see how the two compared.
These two versions are by no means the leading name in makeup remover cloths but both brands have created affordable alternatives.
I’ve given them both a good run and I am ready to give them a thorough review!
The W7 It’s Magic Makeup Remover Cloth is priced at £3.99 from TK Maxx and the Primark Makeup Remover Cloth is £1.50. There is a significant difference there when you consider you can get three of the Primark clothes for 50p more than one W7 cloth.
I was very surprised to see one of these in Primark, they are seriously killing it in the beauty game right now! The W7 may be less easy to get hold on everywhere as not all TK Maxx’s will stock it.
Both come in a plastic box. The W7 cloth has more eye catching branding and the cloth comes wrapped in a plastic bag, much more hygienic.
Whereas the Primark cloth is housed in a clear box with branded cardboard supporting it.
Both cloths recommend washing before use (which I would have done anyway) then wetting with warm water before wiping your face to remove makeup. No cleanser needed! You can leave it to dry for the next day, I keep using mine until the other one has come out the wash, I’d say about three days.
These are super soft and feel really kind on the skin. I found these worked really well to remove makeup. You can see the remnants on the cloth and if you rinse it out and go in again you can see there is no more makeup to remove.
They are much softer than using a flannel and make quick work of removing makeup. It is a much quicker process than my usual method of using cotton pads and micellar water and I don’t dread the makeup removal process as much anymore as I know this is a quick and easy way to do it!
Both of these wash really well and have kept their integrity every time, however I noticed the Primark cloth is slightly more bobbly than the W7 cloth.
W7 vs Primark
So which one wins? I would say the W7 cloth is slightly bigger and feels softer and of nicer quality than the Primark cloth.
Whilst the Primark cloth is cheaper and doesn’t break the bank to stock up on a few, I think I would rather get another W7 cloth, but I wouldn’t be too fussed either way as they both do the job.
