These cloths are terrible! They made my skin red, irritated and 'rashy' as one colleague told me.
It also irritated my rosacea and hormonal acne and I looked like a strawberry. :-(
They're definitely not for sensitive skin or most skins.
The fragrance is noticeable and probably contributed to the irritation. Plus the packaging isn't great. I found the 'sticky label' to close the package didn't stay sealed and began drying out the cloths. Definitely a waste.

It's funny that I found these cloths to be so terribly drying on my skin, considering I love all of the brand's other products. I found that they didn't remove makeup well and made my skin red and extremely dry the next day.
Instead, I've been using the brand;s pure cloud cleanser along with my Clarisonic, which works much better for me.

I agree with spykitty - this set my skin on fire! My skin is not sensitive yet immediately after using this my face started to burn like crazy and turned bright red in spots. This is a product I will not recommend or repurchase.

im on my 2ng bag of these.
if you liked the peel pads you will like these, there not as hash as the pads and work wonders taking makeup off.
>>im lazy i like to get up and go in the am, or just jump in bed and these are PERFECT.
they look soapy in the package but once you use it you wonder where that went cause it doesnt leave a residue or that squeaky feel.
in comparison to drug store cleaning pads this is by far 10x better.

ouch! i would normally be tempted to give this product a great review, because i love the smell/texture/ability at removing makeup. however, it made my skin and eyes BURN like fire. i don't know what they've put in this stuff, but it's horribly irritating to my sensitive skin.

I would buy these again and again. They are the only face cloth that I have found that does not leave a film and cleans without stripping. I bathe at night, so I use these in the morning when my skin does not need as much. I use the detox line.

Sometimes we all feel lazy or tired and don't want to take our makeup off. So I always keep some kind of cleansing cloths around and tried these out because they're not too horribly expensive compared to the rest of the Skyn Iceland line. They took every drop of makeup off my face including my waterproof mascara but they are very drying. Quite frankly, I don't see a difference between these cloths and Garnier's Nutritioniste cloths--except the price. Again, I think Skyn Iceland is a line that is just not suited to my combination skin tone (which leans towards dry in spots in winter time) because I feel like their products just suck the moisture from my face. I would buy these again for use in summer when my skin doesn't get that winter dryness and I was impressed with how well they took all trace of makeup off.
Edited to add that I have bought a package of these and love them. i realized i was using them wrong! you are supposed to rub them together to create a lather instead of just wiping and i was not doing this! I'm liking them a lot more now and adding a lippy. Not giving them five lippies because they are a bit drying and when you have a LOT of make up on ie. for a night out, you need more than one of these to get it all off. They definitely get the makeup off clean though! They are not nearly as drying as they were when I first used them, possibly because I am using them as directed. Skyn has also reformulated a few of their products and this could be one of them. Loving Skyn Iceland more and more!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
I bought this product for 2 reasons:
1 - My skin is seriously stressed and broken out.
2 - I just had my hair chemically straightened, couldn't get it wet for 2 days, and I had bangs. I needed a way to wash my face.
I spotted this after spending about an hour in Sephora looking for a new face wash. The one I had wasn't doing anything for me anymore. I laughed when I saw the description on the package, as it suited me to a T. I tried it that night, and the results in the morning were nothing short of impressive. My redness was reduced, my swelling (acne) had started going down, my skin didn't feel like it was breaking out worse. I went out and bought the 5 day detox kit that afternoon!
I'm using the contents of the 5 day detox kit from Skyn Iceland now. I keep these cloths at work and in my on-flight carry-on bag going back and forth to work. They make a good pick up cleanser. I think these would probably do a decent job for removing make up, but for just washing or doing a quick pick me up, i could probably get away with half of one of these cloths. I would definitely recommend these.

I was very excited about this product having no parabens which in hard to find in a remover cloth. I'm lazy so I always have some wipes in my nightstand for when I forget to take off my makeup. I agree that the cloth is scratchy! It says to rub cloth together to get rich creamy lather, maybe I have not done that enough because my face tingles quite a bit after each use. In my case, the packaging did not work out so well, the cloth was so wet it prevented me from re-sealing so I had to put it in a baggie.
The good news is it takes off your makeup very well, the scent is good and it only takes one cloth for a whole face full of makeup.I would probably only buy again because I need wipeswith no chemicals in them. Otherwise if I can find another brand without, I will buy those and save my face from the rough cloth!

I would give this a 3.5 if possible, because it does what it claims, but with some cons:
-leaves face shiny, possibly due to the oils infused in it. has not broken my acne prone skin out though.
-cloth is not soft. in fact, it is abrasive, and can hurt. it made my cheeks all red, and i was not rubbing hard, just giving it enough pressure to take off my foundation.
-stung my eyes a bit...the scratchiness of the cloth did not help either
however, it does clean my face well, and has a slight medicinal scent that i do not mind. the packaging is good too, the seal is strong and sturdy!
they really need to work on the cloth texture. otherwise, not a bad product.
