Brand Overview

Almay’s Biodegradable Micellar Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes are a run-of-the-mill option for quick makeup removal. They do an OK job in use but given the vast amount of effective wipes on the market, they don’t really bring anything especially impressive to the table.

These fragrance-free cloth wipes come in a plastic pouch with a resealable tab. They’re saturated with enough cleansing solution to not be dry, but they’re not so drenched that they’re drippy and messy. The cloths are soft and easy to swipe over skin.

They ably remove dirt and oil (one or two wipes will get skin clean), but, in an ironic twist, falter when it comes to removing makeup. It takes at least three wipes to get significant makeup removal, and for waterproof or longwearing formulas you’ll need a separate makeup remover to get the job done completely.

While not a bad product per se, these towelettes aren’t in the same league as the options you’ll find on our list of best face wipes.

Almay At-A-Glance

Strengths:An excellent assortment of mascaras; several exceptional foundation options to choose from; a phenomenal liquid eyeliner; a selection of good makeup removers.

Weaknesses: Some of the Intense i-color products do the exact opposite of enhancing eye color; mediocre blushes; Smart Shade products dont automatically adapt to skins color as claimed.

Long a standby for those with sensitive skin seeking hypoallergenic products (though that term is unregulated and can be applied to any product, regardless of ingredients), Almay continues to refine its comprehensive makeup line. In early 2006 the company repackaged its old favorites, and also relaunched several new makeup items. Everything now has a sleek new look and color-coded packaging. We admit, the makeover is effective, not just product-wise but visually too.

Shopping this drugstore line is now much easier because of the clearly defined product and color family groupings. Lamentably, testers and trial sizes of the makeup are still scarce regardless of where you shop. Almay has always been a reliable line for foundations, powder, and mascara. Within its current lineup you'll find that remains true. Their foundations are better than ever, and still offer full, broad-spectrum sun protection and a mostly neutral palette. We also found their concealers and mascaras have improved, as have the pencil options. When it comes to shopping for makeup staples with state-of-the-art formulas, Almay has many winners, and some innovative surprises that its competitors would be wise to learn from.
