Before, I purchased the liquid makeup remover and put it on a cotton pad. That worked absolutely well enough to take off a day's worth of mascara and eyeshadow. (I wear like 20 layers of mascara.)This just takes the extra step away. So, more convenient and great for travel, sleepovers etc.
If you wear a lot of mascara like me, you'll need one pad for each eye.
And maybe an extra makeup wipe on hand... (it might smear onto your cheeks)
