Ten or Less: Almay Oil-Free Makeup Eraser Sticks

We’ve all been there: Racoon-eyed and irritated when we woke up in a hotel room with traces of last night’s makeup still under our eyes. It’s actually one of my biggest annoyances when traveling. I refuse to pack actual makeup remover for fear of it spilling (especially since I roll with the oil-based miracle that is Lancome Bi-Facil), and sometimes makeup wipes don’t get everything. Hence trace evidence when you wake up in the morning. Which is why I squealed with joy at the sight of Almay’s Oil-Free Makeup Remover Sticks. Can I get an Amen here? Why haven’t these existed sooner?

They’re quite simple. Pop off one end of the Q-tip and turn it upside down so the solution drops and soaks the other end of the tip. Then simply remove your eye makeup. It is perfect for getting right at the lashline. I reserve them just for travels, and love that they come in a handy case. No more looking makeup-removal troubles traveling, and my waterproof mascara still gets to come with, too!
