I ran out of my Ellen Tracy facial wipes a while ago, and I was in desperate need of new ones. I saw this at my local Walgreens store for $5, cheaper than the other brands I saw and bought it without a second thought. Mistake.
Although it claims to be 100% natural and organic and all that jazz, the product itself is not that great or gentle. Even though the towlettes are super soft, they tend to get dry and hard while using them. The smell of this product is pure citrus, just lemon and not blueberries. It did a good job removing my foundation but it got so dry while I used it I had to dampen it again on the sink and keep on swiping my face. I did not get to remove much of my eye makeup with it, so I used Mary Kay's eye makeup remover to finish the job. Afterwards my nose area started to sting, and I did not feel my face was very clean so I finished my cleansing routine with Clean & Clear citrus morning burst facial cleanser.
It's the second time I try this brand (I had used the carrot moisturizer before- which is horrible-) and in my opinion is meh, nothing special. The packaging is super tacky, I mean seriously, they try to portray their products as the best natural stuff for your face, when it's not. Like say yes to this and that, what? I literally rolled my eyes when I opened the facial wipes tab and the small plastic to get them out says "Psst - get ready for the compliments. We're just saying". Well, if people like burned skin, let me get the compliments!!! I mean seriously this brand is UGHH. I really hate their advertising and packaging, because it does not live up to their promises.
My advice, buy the Pond's ones, they are amazing. Ellen Tracy facial wipes are super great for sensitive skin too, and you can get them at Marshall's for only $3.26 ;)

Will never again abandon my neutrogena facial wipes. these yes to blueberries ones were a nightmare.
-the smell is a horrid strong lemon smell. does NOT smell like blueberries. smells like straight lemons. bitter and strong.
-made my skin burn when i was using them
-used them around 6pm and when i looked in the mirror at 10 pm my face had already broken out in crazy little red pimples that took 3 days to get to calm down!
-they didnt even remove all my makeup, when i went on with my usual skincare routine i was getting a lot of makeup residue that was left over.
-made my face feel sticky as well.
i know youre thinking im crazy and that can't be as a bad as im making them seem but i swear the stars i will never use these again. HECK TO THE NO.

I really liked these, they didn't made my skin feel dry. Something i didn't like is that they didn't really remove my foundation proberly , but except that it removed all the makeup i had on

They burned my eyes when trying to take off my eye makeup with these, and I did not like that at all. The smell is nice and they feel nice being spread across the face. I didn't personally notice they were any less wet than other other makeup wipes that I have used. I wouldn't repurchase because of the eye-burning.

My favorite makeup removing wipes! They have more moisture than any other drugstore wipe that I have used and leave my skin feeling super soft. I also find the fragrance to be less offensive than comparable wipes such as the Neutrogena Hydrating ones. I keep these in my gym bag and use them to take off my make up at night when I am feeling too lazy for my cleansing oil. For thorough makeup removal, I do recommend following up with a gentle cleanser. I like my Origins Checks and Balances or Aveeno Gentle Foaming Cleanser in combination with these wipes. Together, they remove all of my makeup without stripping my skin. Finally, I love that these are paraben, petroleum and sodium lauryl sulfate free and according to their website, the wipes themselves are compostable. I will say not all the Yes To wipes are created equal. I've tried the Cucumber ones and found them to be kind of dry and not as effective or pleasant to use.

I'm really surprised skincare board recommends these as often as they do. Maybe I got a bad pack, but the wipes were really dried out, even after I stored em upside down to help re-distribute the product. They're pretty soft, but considering they're 2x more expensive than ponds purifying wipes, I can't fathom a reason to repurchase them. The smell is also pretty strong, and not my cup of tea.
I didn't care for these one bit.

I like these. They smell nice, remove dirt/oil/makeup from my face and dont cause breakouts or sting. If you think they arent moist enough store them upside down so the water gravitates to the front wipes and not on the bottom, it helps! I think they are just moist enough to cleanse and not so moist (like neutrogenas) that they make a mess or make my skin feel dry afterward.

Okay, so when I first started using these wipes (last year), I can't remember how my skin first reacted to them, but I do remember my face getting a little red after using them, but I just thought it was a little flush of color, from some of the brightening ingredients? I used them for a very long time, because I LOVE the ingredients, (apple is good for anti-aging and the lemon is good for lightening my freckles). When I most recently ran out I couldn't spend the $8 for them and got the cheaper new Grapefruit wipes instead which I've used for a couple months now with no bad reactions. Now finally I wanted to go back to the Blueberry wipes, and the first night I used them my face became EXTREMELY red and blotchy all over and felt like it was on fire. At first I thought it was because I left them out in the heat in my car, so I took them back and replaced them, now tonight my face has had the same exact reaction as last nights. I'm not sure if the ingredients have changed or if my skin just isn't used to them? But I am sad I can't use them anymore.

I bought the sample one of Yes To Blueberries Age Refresh at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Good thing, because I hate these so much. The scent is over powering and fake and every time I get a Whiff I feel like throwing up. Plus, they made me get little red bumps all over my chin :( never again. Try the cucumber ones instead, those are great :)
