Oil-Lifting Make-up Remover Wipes
Oil-Lifting Make-Up Remover Wipes from Your Good Skin are a great option for most skin types, including sensitive skin as claimed, but those with very oily skin won’t be thrilled. The gentle, fragrance-free formula removes all types of makeup, including waterproof eyeliner.
Packaged in standard soft plastic pouch with a resealable adhesive cover, the cloths are soft, strong, and feel great when massaged over skin. The mild formula doesn’t require rinsing, and leaves skin lightly hydrated, but that’s where those with oilier skin will likely object: the hydrating ingredients chosen tend to make oily skin feel oilier rather than leaving this skin type refreshed.
You can avoid this feeling by rinsing, but if you’re going to rinse you may as well use a standard cleanser—the same advice applies to other skin types who don’t want their makeup remover to leave a perceptible feel on skin. On balance, there’s much to like, including the price, so the issue is really one of personal preference.
- Gentle, fragrance-free formula.

Launched in 2017, YourGoodSkin is the result of an alliance between UK pharmacy mega-brand Boots and American drugstore giant Walgreens. According to company lore, YourGoodSkin is the result of years of development and research involving scientists, dermatologists, and thousands of members of its target audience—women looking for skin care products to address their specific concerns.
In fact, the brand says it surveyed thousands of women and had them test the products before they went to market. This resulted in over 20 products claiming to address a wide range of skin concerns, from dryness to acne.
Consumer testing before finalizing products for launch can deliver some helpful insights and valuable feedback, but a brand’s scientific understanding of what skin needs to improve—and what it doesn’t need—carries even more weight than anecdotal evidence.
YourGoodSkin gets more right than wrong, and it’s certainly a value-priced collection. While there aren’t any true anti-aging powerhouse formulas in the mix, there are some decent moisturizers for those on tighter budgets.
The brand excels at cleansers and makeup removers, with even a couple of top-notch scrubs included; this category is where we recommend directing your time and attention.
The biggest misstep YourGoodSkin makes is in its approach to treating acne and oily skin. Nearly every product designed for these concerns relies heavily on an old-school, irritating approach that includes drying alcohol, fragrance, and even sulfur, all of which can serve to make oily skin and acne worse.
