Ha, I love this question because it's so true! I use multiple layers of mascaras from Sephora, drug stores, and speciality shops. I also like the 24 hour waterproof eyeliners which are super pains to get off... These wipes are like an eraser with them. A couple swoops over your eye and they completely remove all the grime. You can see it in the little wipe and think, "How in the world did I put all that on my eye?" Super wonderful wipes.
