I have tried both the Neutrogena and the Equate ones, and I'd have to say they come out about the same.
These remove makeup efficiently and smell okay. There isn't anyting special about them. There's nothing wrong with them, either though. I do like that they give you plenty of product for the amount of money you spend.
COMPARISION: The Neutrogena one smells better; the Equate smells sort of strong and artificial. The Equate one, however, offers more product and is still cheaper.
In terms of packaging, the Equate one definitely wins. It has a snap-shut plastic cap that prevents the makeup wipes from drying out. The Neutrogena one only has the flimsy little seal that eventually loses its adhesiveness and becomes all flimsy and irritating.
Overall, the Neutrogena one is better (the brand name wins!) in my opinion, but if you want the best value, the Equate one will suffice as well.
I can't understand why anyone is wasting the money on the Neutrogena makeup wipes? These wipes are amazing, especially for their price. They are saturated, smooth, smell light and fresh, and leave my face feeling baby soft. This, and the Equate oil-free moisturizer are two staple HOLY grail items in my beauty routine and I could be spending 3x more on the name brand items but that would be ridiculous! I even bought the Neutrogena moisturizer once just to see the difference and there is literally no difference at all, not even in the amount of product you get. (I believe these Equate wipes have more product in them than the Neutrogena ones do). And they are way less expensive! I high;y recommend these. I love them, I have repurchased these wipes over and over for the past couple years.
I like them so far, removed make-up well and leaves my skin soft and feeling clean.
I dont like these because the fragrance is way too strong. They remove my makeup well and leave my skin feeling okay but the scent irritates my nose so much that I have to throw them away. Bummer.
I didn't really want these wipes in the first place, so I have to use them up and then buy a gel one (which I prefer). These are fine, they remove makeup okay, and this smells pleasant, but I don't like makeup remover wipes in general. However, I would buy them again if I needed these.
I was an avid and long term user of St Ives Makeup Remover and Facial Wash, and was disappointed and then terrified when they discontinued this product in my area. As the last tube came close to an end, I researched on MUA different eye makeup removers and finally tried Neutrogena's equivalent of this product and was satisfied. A frequent Wal-Mart shopper, have used various equate products, so I indulged on a sample. For the price and effectiveness, I give a 5. I have VERY sensitive skin, over 50, and wear contact lenses, and found no irritation, and ALL makeup gone. Will definitely repurchase
These makeup removal towelettes work great to clean off my makeup at the end of the day. They don't have any alcohol or oil. They feel gentle to my skin but they do the job and remove my makeup as well. They do have a light scent but I don't mind it. A package runs $3.48 at my Wal Mart. The packaging is standard facial wipe packaging. I keep replacing these when they run out. They also come in Nighttime and Energizing scents but I haven't tried those yet.
