face off: makeup remover wipes

the best products to help you take it all off after halloween.

by rebecca willa davis

It's starting to feel like all Halloween all the time at NYLON--from pumpkin carving to cool chocolate brands to insanely awesome costume ideas (from both our fave It Girls and our awesome readers), we've got no shortage of ideas for ways you can celebrate on October 31.

But when the last candy bar has been eaten, the final pumpkin smashed, there's a brutal reality: It's time to take it all off. And, if your costume involves any sort of makeup or face paint, that can be a really difficult task.

Which is where face wipes come in; while a year-round favorite of travelers and lazy girls alike, they're particularly genius when it's 3 am and you just want to go to bed without getting your zombie makeup all over your pillow. Of course, not all makeup remover towelettes are made alike, so we've tested out all of them (seriously, there are way more than you'd think) and found our favorites. Click through the gallery to see which ones made the cut, and then pick a pack up now--you'll be thanking us come November 1.
