I bought these on a whim because I ran out of my Neutrogena Makeup Remover cleansing wipes. I got these for around $9.75 at my local grocery store. In comparison to the Neutrogena wipes, these are much more moist. These wipes remove my face make up just as well as the Neutrogena ones. The texture of these Ponds wipes are patterned, and so it makes these wipes somwhat more rough in comparison to the Neutrogena wipes. Due to the difference in texture, I find that it removes my face make up faster and easier.
The only downside to these wipes is the lack of ability to remove my waterproof mascara. It takes so much effort to remove my waterproof mascara - involves lots of tugging and pulling, which is definitely a no-no for your eye area.
The packaging is just like any other wipes - I expect the last 2 wipes to dry up slightly because the stickiness of the opening will be worn out by then.
I won't be buying these because 1. They are more expensive than the Neutrogena ones (I buy a huge Neutrogena pack from Costco for less than $20 - great deal) & 2. They don't remove my waterproof mascara as well in comparison to my Neutrogena ones.
I like this product a lot.
It seems to remove my make up just fine. The smell is not the greatest in the world, but just my opinion. Someone else may like it. But all I want is something to remove my makeup, without burning my eyes. Sometimes the cheaper stuff will do that. Overall, I like it.
I used the wipes and then usually washed my face afterwards. But when I did not wash my face right after use the wipes did not give me a problem. They worked well, just not on water proof makeup. The wipes are a little rough to my skin but not enough to really complain about. I would buy this product again but I think I am going to find something new to try at the moment.
This does remove makeup and the cloths themselves are very moist. I do not like the soapy scent or texture, however. This leaves a sudsy film on my skin and I would not feel comfortable using these alone without washing afterwards.
As I write this review, I am sitting here staring at how dry this made my poor, poor face. I have combo to oily skin, not usually dry, but crap did these things dry my skin out! I bought the up and up (Target) version of these. They contain the same ingrediants, so I'm convinced they're the same. And, looking and other reviews, I see they dried out their skin too. I also think these may have broken me out a little. The cloths are soft and nice, they have a fragrant scent but not an offensive one. They do remove makeup after a few swipes, but it's nothing to write home about. Also, they aren't as wet as I would prefer, nor do they have that 'cool' feeling a lot of other cloths do. These just didn't do it for me. I'll probably try some of the Yes To line next. Fyi, I use makeup wipes before working out to take off my makeup (both face and eye makeup). I can't say I'll even finish the pack- I might just pass it along to my mom.
Let me start off by saying that I have very normal skin and it is rare that any products makes my skin problematic. I was very excited for these wipes and bought them for those days I was too lazy to take all my makeup off and do my cleansing process. So let me just say I very much so regret purchasing these wipes. I purchased the ones with camomile in it and wow DID MY FACE EVER DRY OUT. it was bad.. It scared me cause my face never gets dry to that extent... And also these wipes dry out so fast too and the packaging isn't the best. The seal isn't very much 'resealable' so air can get In and dry them out. Defenitely wouldn't reccomend it but each to their own! Very inexpensive tho. Got 2 packs for $6 in a combo pack at Walmart! Try at your own risk, it may work Great for you considering IT DOES REMOVE all the makeup ... But you have to sit there for about 2 minutes to really get it all off. Hope this helps.
The packaging is crappy. My wipes dried out. I had to rehydrate them with my fluid remover. The wipes are also thin. I much prefer Huggies wipes. You get a lot more and they're way cheaper. And they work better.
Never again! It didn't break my out (even though I'm super acne prone) BUT I'm allergic to something in it because it caused me to have a flare up of Milia.
I don't like the diamond quilted pattern at all.... its too rough on my skin. They are not as soaked as I would prefer but oddly enough they start to develop a soapy foam on my face after rubbing a few times. Didn't remove my makeup that well. I feel like I experienced an increase in redness around the eye after this. Don't like that it is infused with perfume.
Used 6-7x.. won't be finishing the pack. Mac wipes were better.
All these Ponds Towelettes are great .... I usually use the Evening Camomile, but this regular one is great too.
I usually need two if I have worn foundation; first step in make-up removal in the evening.
First, I use Lancome's Bi-Facil for my eyemakeup (mascara junkie, forget this for mascara), then these wipes to take off most of the gunk, eh, I mean, cosmetic products. Then I cleanse with whatever is in the rotation, depending on my hormones, needs, the weather, etc. Then the treatment product of du noir.
Great staple product. Has cut time and waste down, down, down. Philosophy's Purity towellettes are a good choice, but these work nearly just as well, for a fraction of the cost, and can be picked up most everywhere for pretty inexpensive, if you travel a lot.
I buy these in bulk.
I have tried only these and a comparable Neutrogena cloth. I can't tell much difference, which is to say that each effectively removed long-wear foundation and moderate eye makeup without stinging or burning my sensitive skin. The rough side of the cloth is too abrasive for my taste, but one entire cloth takes care of my entire face. I wish the product packaging seal was more reliable; I keep the entire package sealed in a ziploc bag. Last but not least, these wipes do not irritate my skin or cause breakouts. Based on availability, gentle effectiveness (including eye area) and price, I will repurchase.
