The Original Makeup Eraser Makeup Remover Cloth vs. PleasingCare Makeup Remover Face Cleansing Cloth

Similarity Score: 95%

Kayla says: Makeup Eraser is $20 for a 7x16 cloth & PleasingCare is also a 7x16 cloth but for $6.99. You can get PleasingCare on Amazon. Both brands have a slightly different texture on each side to help with stubborn makeup. Both are very soft. They both claim to take off all of your makeup (even stubborn eyeliner & mascara) by simply running the cloths under warm water & using circular motions on your face until your makeup comes off. I tried both brands on each side of my face and, to my surprise, both worked very well. I didn't have to do much work getting my foundation, mascara or eyeliner off of my face. My skin didn't feel irritated by either brand. Both claim to be able to wash 1,000 times before you need to replace. In the end, I would choose PleasingCare over Makeup Eraser because you get the same product for a much lower price. Buy PleasingCare

The Original Makeup Eraser Makeup Remover Cloth vs. Ulta Beauty Beauty Smarts Makeup Removing Towels

Similarity Score: 89%

Kayla Says: Makeup Eraser is $20 for 1 cloth at 7x16. ULTA brand is $10 for 2 7x7 cloths. I personally like that you get 2 separate cloths rather than 1 large one. That way I can have one in the laundry while using another. A 7x7 cloth is more than enough to wipe your whole face. Both are made with 100% polyester. They both claim to take off all your makeup (even stubborn eyeliner & mascara) by simply just running it under warm water and using circular motions on your face until your makeup comes off. Both brands have a slightly different texture on each side of the cloth. I tried both brands on each side of my face and both worked really well. I didn't have to do much work getting my foundation off my face but my eye makeup took a bit more time especially since I was using waterproof products but everything came off with both brands really well. I didn't have raccoon eyes after & my skin didn't feel irritated. I still cleansed & moisturized after. Makeup Eraser claims to be good for up to 1,000 washes. ULTA brand has a hanging loop for easy drying. Makeup Eraser does not. I do not recommend using fabric softener on these. I definitely would choose ULTA brand over the name brand. Buy Ulta
