Olay Cleansing Melts

I’ve used Olay’s Daily Facials cloths for travel for 20+ years. I usually cut them in half and they’re plenty big enough. They work great and replace a liquid face wash.

I just saw these Olay Cleansing Melts. They look like an even better option. Teeny tiny and no waste. https://www.olay.com/cleansing-melts?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Branded&keyword=olay%20melts&matchtype=e&campaign=14745792717&adgroup=170427276628&network=g&gad_source=1&gclid=Cj0KCQjwsaqzBhDdARIsAK2gqndfccZ2j8gpxEC089BPDO6Mcz7D-lweODswsTjmMjxKIN4iVIzmh_AaAm6TEALw_wcB

Thanks for sharing travel4fun. Interesting possibility. As you said teeny tiny and no waste, much easier for travel.

Thanks for sharing this new option! I usually brought the Oil of Olay face cloths cut in half. For my last trip, I tried cutting them in fourths to just use on my eye makeup and wash the rest of my face with soap. But, I wasn’t happy that a little residue of my foundation would end up on some of the hotel towel afterwards. So, whichever methods you try, check the effectiveness with a white towel at home,

Are they good enough to remove makeup- just blush and mascara, not foundation. This would eliminate my eye makeup remover.

Barbara, I doubt it. The Facials cloths don’t remove mascara completely. I do a double cleanse. First with a tiny amount of cold cream makeup remover that I put in one side of a contact lense holder. Then I use the cloths.

Barbara, I use L’Oréal Paris Makeup Voluminous Original Mascara which is not waterproof, and the cloths have removed all of it. I use the cloths cut in half at home, too, as my normal makeup remover.

I like Clinique Take the Day off to well, really take the day off, using a washcloth or cotton balls. The container is huge, I 'decant' it into a small pill bottle, it last a long time. Then I use the cleansing cloths, unfortunately it takes both to really get if all off, especially if you're wearing sunscreen. The price we pay....

Received my order from Amazon for the new Olay Cleansing Melts and have tried them. Yes, they lather nicely in the hands an take off eye makeup.

I do not wear foundation so only need to remove sunscreen and mascara. I got tired of carrying around cold cream or eye make-up remover so on my daughter's recommendation I switched to THRIVE tubing mascara. I would call it water-proofish. But it does come off with soap and water or the Olay face cloths. I bought a huge pack of the face cloths so will be using them till they are gone!

I find that I really want a cloth of some kind, especially since there are often no wash cloths in Europe. I’ve carried some of the individually wrapped Neutrogena face wipes, but I also have a small Norwex face cloth that I like for no waste. I’ve used that the last couple of years.

As for mascara, I swear by Avon water proof mascara. I could be in a rain storm or bawl my eyes out and that stuff just does not smudge. I just take a very tiny container with Vaseline to get it off.

I use the Neutrogena makeup remover at home, and their wipes for travel. They do a great job at getting everything off. I do not wear liquid foundation, rather just a bit of blush, powder, eyeliner and good old Maybelline mascara. These work great. I like that they are already moist, so I don't need to get water. I also like that if they get onto a colored washcloth, they do not discolor it.

BTW those melts look good, but would be too messy for me. I do like that there is no waste with them though!
