Magnitone Wipeout Review

Categories Beauty, Featured, Makeup, Skin

Hi guys, this post has been a long time coming. Some of you may remember I reviewed Pink Parcel back in July. In my box (which I loved), I received a Magnitone Wipeout cleansing cloth* and I was very excited to try it. A few of you asked for my thoughts on it, so I’m doing my Magnitone Wipeout review today, three months later. My timekeeping is excellent.

Pink Parcel

I’m going to be honest, it’s now October and this is the first time I’m using it. As excited as I was to use it, you have to wash this before you use it. Now, this cloth is hot pink. I don’t wear much that colour, so opportunities to wash it were few and far between. Naturally, when they did come, I kept forgetting to put it in. And I certainly wasn’t going to wash it alone. I really need to check if they come in other colours… Turns out you can get grey ones too.

My Regular Routine

Before we get into the review, I’m going to go through my regular makeup removal routine. Typically, I take my makeup off with micellar water and eye makeup remover before I go in with a proper cleanser. To cleanse, I usually go in with an oil or balm cleanser, I’ve spoken about my favourite cleansers countless times so I’m not going to go into detail about that.

The past week or so, I’ve been reaching mainly for the Superfacialist Cleansing Oil* and I’m going to go in with that after I use the cloth to see if there’s any residue left. Side note: that cleanser is about £10 and it’s amazing on dry skin, if anyone is looking for a new one, I highly recommend.

A few of my favourite makeup removers and cleansers:

Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm

Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm *

Superfacialist Vitamin C Cleansing Oil* (this is £7.33 right now, you need this)

Bioderma Hydrabio Micellar Water *

Garnier Oil Infused Micellar Water *

Nivea Daily Essentials Double Effect Eye-Makeup Remover * (currently a third off)

What’s it taking off?

I’m wearing pretty much my regular makeup today. Which is a fairly full face. Normally, my makeup has been on my face around 16 hours when I take it off. I know a lot of people like to take theirs off before they settle in for the evening, but mine usually doesn’t come off until bedtime. The only exception to that is if I’m removing it before an evening run. Today is a rest day, so that’s not happening. I got ready a little late today, so my makeup has been on about 10/11 hours at the point I’m removing it.

I was supposed to take a photo when I got ready, but clearly, I forgot. I’m wearing pretty much the same as I was on this day if you’d like an idea. That day, I wore the Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion foundation, today I’m wearing the Revolution Pro Foundation Drops and I think that’s the only difference product wise.

How it works

Magic. That’s how. Okay, so in reality, there are microfibres in there which supposedly pull the makeup from your face. The way I described that was awful, it sounds vicious, but the cloth feels like a fluffy blanket.

I’m going to be honest and put it out there that I have no idea how these microfibres actually remove the makeup. So, I’m sticking with the original method of magic.

(This is why I should stick to reviewing skincare with ingredients other than polyester, I actually know what I’m talking about when I do that. And yes, I just referred to polyester as an ‘ingredient’)

What am I expecting?

To be completely honest, I have no idea whether I think it’s going to work or not. I’m currently thinking about how difficult mascara is to remove and I don’t know how it’s going to manage. But part of me thinks this is going to blow my mind. I really want this to work. If it does work, it’s going to be one of the most amazing products ever. Think of its travel potential or its sick day usage.

I still think cleansing the skin is important for skin health, but I know this product will be extremely useful if it does work well.

Does it work?

700 words in and we’re finally getting to the point you’ve been waiting for, fabulous.
Yes and no. On my face, it works miracles. I don’t know how, but it removed everything. The majority of my makeup came off with a few swipes on one side of the cloth and the last few bits came off with a swipe on the other side. All of my cheek products and foundation came off instantly. My skin did feel tighter than it would have if I’d used an oil, which isn’t surprising. I do miss the nourishing feeling my usual products give, but this is good if you’re in a pinch.


However, and this is big, I lost at least 5 eyelashes when I tried to remove my eye makeup. The eyeshadow came off in one swipe, as did half of my lashes. Some of the liner came off and it would have probably been fully removed if I was able to go back in with another swipe. It didn’t really work on my mascara. Other than the product that was on my lost lashes. As you can tell, I was totally not bothered by this at all.

When I was done, I tried to rinse the cloth and nothing was coming off. So it would need washing after just one use, which isn’t ideal if you did want to travel with it for holiday purposes rather than a one night trip.

Was there anything left?

Time to cleanse and see if there’s any residue on the cloth. No need to state the obvious, but I went in with a fresh, clean white. The cleanser is bright orange, so there’s going to be yellowy orange patches on there from that, even if no more makeup comes off.

No, not really. My eyes aside, there was only one tiny patch of foundation that came off when I went in with my cleansing oil. And I’m pretty sure that’s a patch I missed the first time.

Final Thoughts

I miss my eyelashes. And I’m very tempted to just end this there. But, it did work brilliantly on my skin, and I would totally use it again for that. I think it’s incredibly convenient to have, I can see myself packing it for travel purposes and maybe for sick days, but it certainly has its flaws. The fact I can’t use it on my eyes ruins it for me. I wish it hadn’t worked on my skin so I could hate it, but I don’t.

What do you guys think? Have you tried the Magnitone Wipeout cloths before, or another similar product? Are you surprised by my results?

Until next time,

  1. I love this review Sophie, it did make me laugh about the eyelashes! I actually got one of these in a TreatBox and didn’t want it so gave it to my mum. I’ll have to check to see if she still has her eyelashes next time I see her, oops! Ha ha! It’s a shame that it only really works once before you need to wash it properly, otherwise it would have been perfect for holidays. Thank you for sharing your honest thoughts, I always enjoy reading your reviews <3 xx

  2. I do remember your Pink Parcel review! I’ve never used a Magnitone face cloth (or any other type of face cloth) but that’s interesting it worked so well on your face although not so well on your eyes. Very sorry to hear about your eyelashes, that’s so sad. I think I’ll probably stick to my all in one face wash as I don’t really wear foundation so there’s not a lot for me to take off at the end of the day, just eye make up really, and I can’t afford to lose any lashes! Fab review, Sophie, thank you for being honest! xx

  3. Ah, that’s a shame about your lashes! I’ve started using a Ditsy Cloth (same thing, different brand) and thankfully haven’t had that problem. It works on my waterproof mascara and liner too – woohoo!

    My main issue with it is the make-up staying on the cloth after use. I rinse mine nightly and wash it weekly (is that bad?!) but some of my make-up – mainly foundation – stains it.

    BUT all that aside, I’m still favouring it over throw-away wipes or cotton pads. Plus, it’s soooo soft! 🙂

    1. I noticed that too! It seems like it’s going to be hard to clean. That’s amazing that it works so well for you! I might look into that one as I really like the concept of them in theory x

  4. I’ve seen this kind of product floating around a lot lately but I’ve never tried it. I’m so confused by how it manages to do such a good job on removing facial makeup – I’m with you, it’s definitely magic. It’s such a shame that it isn’t great on the eyes though (RIP your lashes) as that’s where I tend to wear the most makeup. I’m also not that keen on having to wash it after every use. It’d be good for an evening away from home though! Excellent, thorough review – thanks for sharing!

  5. RIP your eyelashes! This review is really awesome, honest & well-written. I’ve been wondering about getting one of these for a while. Think I might stick to a Muslin cloth for now (& Garnier oil infused micellar water!).
    I also use Herbalism by lush – it’s a great cleanser & exfoliator and makes me feel all hippie-ish because of the herby smell.

  6. Wow never have tried any make up removing cloth but this sounds really interesting. I love the fact that you can use it with just water and not any other make-up removing cream or cleanser. I would still double cleanse just for personal preference but I could see this cloth being a great travel essential. Thanks for sharing.

  7. I have another product that is very similar to yours. I wet it with water and it does take off the makeup, even mascara and eyeliner. I do like it! However, I rather wash my face with a cleanser first. Then, whatever make up doesn’t come off, I use the make up wipe which works extremely well for leftover mascara and eyeliner.

  8. I bought a similar thing to this from Primark last week to test but I’m yet to try it out properly! It’s a shame about the eye makeup but at least it did have some good points!

  9. I’ve never heard of this brand or micro fibre cloth for removing makeup, that’s so interesting! I usually use micellar water too. However My go to product for removing a full face is the MeruMaya cleanser – it literally removes everything in one swipe!! Would love to see what you think of that brand x

  10. I haven’t tried this brand of makeup remover cloth but I have used another one before and it did work but I find it a bit pointless because you still need a good cleanse afterwards to remove the rest of the makeup! Great review xx

  11. Whether a product can remove my eye makeup (hello waterproof mascara), is always a deal breaker for me. I’m also a huuuge fan of the Garnier Micellar Water; I’ve been using it for close to 2 years now, and I’ve never looked back. This product certainly was interesting! I enjoyed your take on it 🙂 x

  12. I have the makeup revolution one and I can’t rate it enough. It’s best when it’s soaking wet. Does make my skin s little dry but I love not using products and wipes etc that can’t be recycled and it lasts 1000 washes! I rinse mine through with some face wash and it comes up clean straight away!

  13. Great review! I also use a face cloth when removing my makeup, I find it very helpful instead of going out every few weeks getting makeup remover wipes, I will always have this cloth with me! It’s such a shame about the lashes, I expierenced thag too so now I wet my cloth and hold it on my eye then gentle wipe it and it helps a lot and not rip out any lashes!

  14. I have a couple of makeup remover cloths that are very similar to this and absolutely love mine! They are magic aren’t they. It’s such a shame about your eyelashes, that would completely panic me! I find that I have to be very gentle with mine around my eye area but have never had any more than the odd eyelash come off so thats so strange!

  15. ‘Final thoughts – I miss my eyelashes’ is this product similar to that halo pad – I think Chloe morello is affiliated with it. I am very skeptical of these – sometimes all of my makeup doesn’t come off with a cleanser. I think this would be nice if you want to take off your makeup really quickly with no fuss – recently I only wear foundation to work so this would work perfectly. I can’t get my head around not using a cleanser – I wonder if your skin is likely to break out after using this for a little while. I recently went back to my liz Earle hot cloth cleanser and remembered how much I love it.

  16. I like the convenience of this but don’t like the thought of losing a few lashes! I was really impressed at the fact that it almost removed all your makeup, i was expecting it to not remove any! Lovely review x

  17. Oooh, love the color of the cloth! It’s always nice to have a refreshed face when you take off makeup. I haven’t used these makeup removers before. Glad you enjoyed the remover! It’s nice to have makeup removed in one go rather than having to babysit it. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
