Makeup Melt Oil-Free Makeup Remover Wipes
Cleansing cloths can be a great way to remove makeup at the end of the day (especially if you're tired or on-the-go), but Bliss' Makeup Melt Oil-Free Makeup Remover Wipes actually create more work, defeating their purpose.
These wipes come in a plastic pouch with a pull-back adhesive flap. They're soft and saturated, but not overly so, steeped in a cleansing solution that includes skin-soothing ingredients such as chamomile, oat kernel extract, and aloe.
In use, these feel refreshing, and have a barely detectable scent (though any amount of fragrance can irritate skin, and it's especially not recommended for the eye area).
The more pressing issue here is that these wipes can't do what they're supposed to—namely, remove stubborn makeup. It takes two to three wipes to even begin to remove even non-waterproof formulas, and about four or five to reveal totally makeup-free skin! In fact, it's necessary to follow up with another makeup remover, adding an extra step—something that takes away from the convenience factor of this product, not to mention the frequent replacement cost given how fast you'd use these up.
There are many other makeup removers out there (including cleansing cloths) that do the job better in every price range, so we don't see the need to even try these.
- Including skin-soothing ingredients.
- The cloths feel soft.
- Wipes don't a good job removing makeup.

The story of Bliss starts in 1996, when personal trainer Marcia Kilgore opened a New York spa designed around no-fuss skin treatments and de-stressing regimens for busy lifestyles. Over time, clients asked for Bliss-branded skin care products, and so Bliss skin care was born.
Bliss enjoyed success for years, being sold in spas as well as online and at some brick-and-mortar retailers. Kilgore eventually sold Bliss, and after changing hands a couple more times, the brand began to lose some of its identity. Its most recent owners decided it was time for a back to our roots makeover, with lower prices across the board and a cleaner version of Bliss's iconic white with splashes of color packaging.
Bliss's biggest appeal is in providing people with a spa-like experience at home. The line features multiple masks, in addition to exfoliation treatments, moisturizers, and body care products for a variety of skin types and concerns. While there are some missteps in the line (including fragranced products and some instances of jar packaging), there are some gems to be found among Bliss's offerings you just have to know where to look.
