First off, I am NOT a regular wipe/towelette user. When wearing makeup I usually use Purity Made Simple with a few drops of olive oil & a facecloth. If no makeup, I generally use just warm water & a facecloth. All that said, I am lazy every now & then and that's when I reach for a pre-moistened towelette product.

I've used Ponds & Olay and didn't care for either of them, they left a sticky feeling on my skin, didn't remove even half the makeup and were a bit scratchy feeling.

On to the YTC...
The first thing I noticed is the scent; a refreshing cucumber with a hint of floral, melon & apple. Yum! Theses are a nice thickness and wet, not dripping but nicely soaked. I like to really work my face, so the towelette has to be able to stand up to it and these did, unlike the ponds which I have torn.
I was wearing a lot of makeup today, full face including TFSI & 3 coats of mascara. Very little face makeup came off on a cotton pad with ACV toner afterwards and these cloths did a great job at removing all of my eye makeup. I was pretty surprised as I really thought I was going to have to use a 2nd cloth. These are about average size to slightly smaller than other towelettes.

There was a very slight residue left on my skin, not sticky, just something there. So I did splash the face with water & patted dry before using the toner.

The only real negative to these for me, is that I did notice a burning sensation right below my eyes & nowhere else. I'm not overly sensitive there afaik. For a product that claims to be soothing (one of the reasons I decided to try them) there really shouldn't be a burning sensation.

I bought the travel pack of 10 towelettes for $2.99
The standard peel up/resealable packaging should keep for quite awhile.

I would buy these again even with the slight under eye irritation since they are the best I've used so far for removing makeup. I don't plan to use them every day since I still prefer the Philosophy.
