LOVE THESE!!! I have used both the normal and exfoilating towelettes by equate and found that they are the same stuff except the exfoilating towells have little bumps on them.
These are really great to remove oils, dirt and makeup at night (but I still use a eye makeup remover on my eyes and then follow with an equate towel). I LOVE how cheap these are (VERY economical). The only thing I dont like is that the container doesnt keep the towelettes very moist because the opening inside is so big it allows too much air inside and it dries them out....I bought a cotenelle brand wipes container and use it instead because it keeps the towells from drying out better! (its a smaller container so you have to split up half the equate bag and save them). So I suggest doing this as well : ) Otherwise AWESOME!!!
PROS: Removes makeup. Very inexpensive. Convenient for bedside.
CONS: Smell is kind of like bathroom cleaner mixed with bad perfume. Leaves me with red, irritated patches that last a couple of days. (This is even worse when I'm removing the Armani Face Fabric foundation. Don't know why.)
ALTERNATES: I ended up keeping a bottle of Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser (or the Equate version) with a box of tissues by the bed for when I have "forgotten" to wash my face.
I was on the hunt for something to remove my makeup quickly because I'm so dead when I get home I just wanna go to bed and not spend forever scrubbing off makeup and washing. I guess I must have bad luck with makeup wipes because I used Equate towelettes and I got a crazy red rash from it and my face began peeling after a few days around my eyes. I then tried Hard Candy's Take It Off makeup remover wipes and the same thing happened. (Equate was the worst)
Can't describe how much I'm in love with these things. Even if they were 3 times the price, I'd still buy them...(knock on wood). But they really remove makeup well and are the least irritating of makeup wipes I've ever tried. I use Cerave Foaming Facial Cleanser in the morning, but I noticed when I use it night and day it makes my skin more oily. My skin is very sensitive, so I can't comment on that too much. BUT when I use this at night to remove my makeup, my skin is pretty oil free for most of the day and I don't get the terrible redness under my nose/above my mouth(which I HATE with a passion and get all the time). I also can't begin to describe how clear this makes my skin. I think a combination of Cerave, Coconut Oil, and these Equate wipes have been great for me. The equate wipes don't get rid of acne persay, but since my skin is less irritated, my skintone does seem more even.
One thing to mention, I do not like using this around my eyes. It's great in a pinch, and is probably the most effective makeup removing cloth, but I much prefer using Almond Oil as a makeup remover(mentioned in another review if you're curious at all). The area around my eyes gets too dark and red if I use these every day to remove my makeup. They don't make my eyes sting like the Olay Sensitive wipes, at least. But these are still fantastic wipes and amazing if you're just running around all day and need a refresher. That's if you're not wearing makeup of course. These are also available in 15ct travel packs for dirt cheap, probably around 2$ or less. Try these out if you can, you really have very little to lose.
On a side note, I think they changed the formula from a few years ago. First time I tried them I didn't like them too much,but they revamped the packaging and added some ingredients(I think), and they are much better. Packaging is now super convenient as well.
HG makeup removal wipes. I use these to remove my face makeup and cold cream residue from removing my eye makeup. Lightly scented, soft yet strong, and super affordable at 120 for $6. I've been irritated and broken out by so many makeup wipes, but not these. I've been using these for a while and at first I had to throw away the first 3 or so to get a wet wipe from a newly opened package. I've learned to always have a backup 2 pack stored upside down so that after the month it takes me to use a pack, the wipes at the opening of the new pack are perfectly saturated when I replace them. Love these.
I bought this based on all the positive reviews here. I'm not sure if it's the exact same product because mine doesn't say 3 in 1 on it but the packaging looks quite similar. I bought this in Walmart in Canada and it works well. I always use a separate eye make up remover because I find these wipes don't take off waterproof mascara, so I always use a separate remover for eye make up. This works very well for removing face make up such as BB cream or foundations. It doesn't irritate my skin and it doesn't leave an oily feeling after wiping. I usually wash my face after with another makeup remover just to get any left over residue off my face. I like my face feeling clean with no left over make up on. The wipes are smooth and doesn't scratch or irritate my face. However, if I get too close to my eye and it gets into my eye somehow, it does sting. It has a pleasant smell to it that's not irritating as well. One wipe covers my entire face so I don't need to use multiple wipes to get the job done. I'd repurchase once I run out.
I use these towelettes all the time and I love them. If I am too lazy to completely wash my wash, I use these. I also use them after washing to remove any left over eye m/u.
I wouldn't use these as my primary make-up remover, but when I don't feel like doing the entire facial cleansing routine, it works! However, when I do the entire routing at night, after showering in the morning and before I do my morning make-up, I will use one of these cloths to gently cleanse any residue from the night before creams I used. Like everyone else has said, the first few towelettes are on the dry side but only on the top side. I try to make sure that I leave the next towelette tucked inside the container. For the price, I will definitely use these again and again! I also recently started using cold cream to remove my make-up at night. Cold cream can leave a heavier residue than I want sometimes, and these work great to gently wipe away excess residue. Like I said earlier, I use another in the morning to "wake-up" my face and gently cleanse overnight build up. Would definitely purchase again!!!
I use these wipes daily, they're super useful at the end of the day when you're tired and don't want to spend hours removing your makeup. The price is very cheap and you can get the, at Walmart for an incredible price. Highly recommend it !
I've been using these daily for 4+yrs :) For reference I'm 30yrs old, have fair oily skin, and am very acne/clog prone. These are good, basic m/u removing towlettes. I don't find these to remove ALL my m/u with 1 wipe (but I haven't found ANY towlette that can do that yet) so I DO follow w/a cleanser - more recently I'm using Pond's Cold Cream to remove my m/u, then using this to remove the cold cream. and I find that this method DOES indeed remove ALL of my makeup :) They're a daily staple for me - no breakouts - easy to find at every Walmart store as well as Walmart.com - easy on my wallet - and I'll continue to repurchase again and again :)
