Okay, so when I first started using these wipes (last year), I can't remember how my skin first reacted to them, but I do remember my face getting a little red after using them, but I just thought it was a little flush of color, from some of the brightening ingredients? I used them for a very long time, because I LOVE the ingredients, (apple is good for anti-aging and the lemon is good for lightening my freckles). When I most recently ran out I couldn't spend the $8 for them and got the cheaper new Grapefruit wipes instead which I've used for a couple months now with no bad reactions. Now finally I wanted to go back to the Blueberry wipes, and the first night I used them my face became EXTREMELY red and blotchy all over and felt like it was on fire. At first I thought it was because I left them out in the heat in my car, so I took them back and replaced them, now tonight my face has had the same exact reaction as last nights. I'm not sure if the ingredients have changed or if my skin just isn't used to them? But I am sad I can't use them anymore.
I bought the sample one of Yes To Blueberries Age Refresh at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Good thing, because I hate these so much. The scent is over powering and fake and every time I get a Whiff I feel like throwing up. Plus, they made me get little red bumps all over my chin :( never again. Try the cucumber ones instead, those are great :)
This product is awful. I couldn't get past the scent. It was overwhelming and not great smelling either. I returned it right away. The yes to blueberries serum and night cream on the other hand: amazing!
worst product ever! i bought these for my mom without researching them up just bc i was at the store n thought for sure they would be good.was soo wrong! it made her face turn red and she doesnt even have sensative skin to even wonder if it was that( she has completely normal skin), not only was the fragrance tooo strong but clearly nothing on the ingredients are natural as it claims to be. so be aware. if u have doubts about this product, DONT BUY IT. there are so many negative reviews on this product for a reason.
There is a softness to this that I like but this is no where near saturated enough. As such there is way too much rubbing. Not as bad as Garnier but a long way from Neutrogena or Olay which cost less but are far more effective. Add a bit more liquid and you will have a winner. The cloths themselves are also a bit floppy so if you like something more structured stick with the aforementioned or Ponds.
Being that I have oily skin, I was not expecting a miracle from these towelettes. I used them primarily as a quick makeup remover before washing my face. I found that they did a good job of removing makeup (including most of my mascara) and oil from the day. They also smelled really delicious and the towelettes were quite a bit larger than I expected. I have not used the whole package yet, but so far I do not see any brightening or rejuvenating effect. These towelettes are nice, so I would repurchase them if I could find them on sale. I think the price is a bit steep for 30 towelettes ($8 regular price).
Update: I gave the towelettes the benefit of the doubt, but I have identified them as the culprit; Every time I use these towelettes, I feel a light burning sensation afterwards. Nothing serious, but sometimes uncomfortable and it makes my face red. I will not repurchase these.
This product has a scent you either love or hate. I enjoy it, It gets the job done taking my makeup off and even makes it look shiny and dewy without having to actually wash my face. I am very happy with these wipes. I have tried the cucumber ones as well, I prefer these over them. I have also tried Burts bees wipes..I hated them compared to these. That wipe burnt my skin while the YES TO products are gentle on my skin.
Reading other reviews on this product, I would recommend looking at the age of the reviewer and taking it from there. It seems that these work better for more mature age, late 20's and up.
I don't review much, only when something really surprises me - bad or good. These are very good. I'm 36 with some fine lines around my eyes. I don't use any anti-aging products at all, since they do nothing long- term and cost arm and a leg. So I literally wash my face with a Nivea body wash in the shower. I use proactive as a face lotion.
I bought these towelettes because they were on sale and I like the no-chemical aspect. I was very surprised to see a difference in my skin. NEVER have I seen a difference after a cleanser. I've seen some differences with expensive face moisturizers, but not with a face wash.
They brightened my skin, and the fine lines became almost invisible. I certainly didn't expect it. I do want to underline that I don't use any other fine-line-reducing products, so if you are, you might not see as much of a difference in that area.
I really don't care about the pre-wetting of these things, but they just leave my skin so much better looking that I chose to deal with the yackiness of something being cold-moist on my face.
I don't wear much make-up, and it seems that's the main complaint about the wipes - not getting off the make up. Just use soap for makeup and then finish with the wipes, they'll leave your skin soft and nice.
I've been using these for a few months now and am pretty happy with them. They smell nice, and somewhat lime/citrusy. They get my makeup off pretty well (mascara needs an extra scrubbing). They make my face smooth and soft, and I don't need to wash my face afterwards. They also make my skin look pretty refreshed the next day. So all-in-all I'm happy with them.
I don't like these because
1) I don't find these to be as wet as the neutragena or even the cucumber version of these wipes
2 The smell is fake and chemically
3) It doesn't brighten at all, unlike the packaging claims
