Sunday Secret: I Do This for "Wetter" Makeup Remover Wipes


::affiliate::

As a devoted fan of makeup remover wipes, I have tried many brands and have many brands on my to try list. Some are more saturated with remover than others. All of them are contained in flimsy packaging that, in my not so humble opinion does not do the job to keep my wipes at peak. Being the freak I am, I decided to just cut open packages, pile them into a plastic freezer bag and keep them that way. 

Well, a marvelous thing happened. My wipes actually got "wetter." I don't know how that happens or why... I am not a scientist or expert in fluid dynamics. Not only do already nicely saturated wipes get better, I have had not so saturated wipes become wetter and more saturated as they sit in the plastic bag. It's kind of a marvelous thing. 

There is nothing to it. Grab makeup remover wipes, my favorite are Neutrogena Hydrating Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes, a slide lock freezer food storage bag, (it's important that you use a freezer bag, this doesn't work so well with the "storage" bags) and a pair of scissors.  


Cut open the makeup wipe packs and remove the wipes from their packages and stack them in the freezer bag. fold and roll the bag around the wipes, pushing out as much air as humanly possible and seal. 


That's all there is to it. I just keep adding packs to the bag as I go and I always have nice, saturated makeup remover wipes at my fingertips. 

It's not glamorous to look at but it works like a charm. 

What are your favorite makeup remover wipes? Do you have a storage method that keeps them in peak condition?

  1. What a great tip, because you're right, the packaging and seal on these is flimsy and gets worse with wear. My favorite brand of makeup remover wipes is Lauren Napier, which comes in individual wrappers. I don't use wipes a lot but I love the convenience of them!

  2. I always flip my wipes from front to back so the moisture has to go from side to side. I really need to stop buying them but they are so nice to have heh

  3. I like this idea! Mine always seem so much dryer the ones on top than on bottom. I would flip them over but the seal is so crappy that I would get nervous of leaking. I am definitely going to have to try this!

  4. What a great idea for having the makeup wipes be moist all the time. Something for me to do now.

  6. That was one reason why I tossed them in a bag. Those packages and the seals suck! The freezer bag really works.

  7. I suppose that they are naughty but they are so convenient and honestly, I don't want to be without them.

  8. I have never used wipes in individual wrappers. Those sound great for travel and on the go.

  9. I need to do this. I'm betting that because you can squeeze all the air out each time, the vacuum created disperses all the remover more evenly than gravity. You're a genius!

  12. That's pushing it a bit but... You may be right about the slight vacuum dispersing the remover. I think it may set up a little "rainforest" too as it gets kind of wet in the bag. I've put not so moist wipes in a bag and a week later... Nice and juicy. It's so weird.
