These aren't half bad. I bought the smaller 15 sheet pack for $2.99, which is reasonable to just try them out. These are good for AM cleansing or midday freshing up. They're okay for PM cleansing if you wear light makeup, but don't expect them to remove long wearing makeup or waterproof mascara. Basically, they'll get off most of the goop, but you'll probably want to go over things with a cream cleanser at night. I think these are ideal for travel. I can imagine they'd be especially great for camping. I have to imagine, because camping is a very unlikely activity for me!
As far as being drying or rough, I didn't have a problem, and I have pretty sensitive skin. One trick for removing eye makeup without causing irritation is to press the sheet against your eye and let it sit there a few seconds before wiping the makeup away. You'll remove more makeup without rubbing or tugging.
Edit: After trying out various cleansing wipes, I decided to go back and add a lippie to these. Compared to most wipes out there, these are very moist and effective. They're very affordable too. I just bought a 30 sheet pack for about $4.00 dollars at Kroger, which is nearly half the cost of many other brands. And these don't leave a greasy film behind on your skin. I'll definately keep buying.

I bought these after hearing good things about Ponds, but they just didn't cut it for me. The towlettes have a bit of a rough texture and didn't even take my makeup off. I actually had better results using dampened kleenex to remove my eye makeup than with these. The towelettes stung my eyes a bit when trying to remove my eye makeup. They do have a nice scent and leave your skin feeling cool and clean, but that was just about the only upside. They come in a resealable plastic package which was alright at first, but after a while I noticed that they were starting to dry out and I had to dampen them slightly before using. Never buying again.

I like these, they are great at taking off makeup and leaving my skin clean. I notice that after I use them my skin is calm and clear; these contain chamomile and vitamin E high up on the ingredient list which is why I bought them and I do notice a difference in my skin.
Con -- I agree with some of the other reviewers who say that the towlettes are rough-textured. But it's not so much that it stops me from using them. They can also be slightly drying but this isn't a problem for me because I moisturize afterwards. But if you don't and you have dry skin you might not like that.
Overall I think these are good quality for the price and I will continue to buy.

Ummmm....im not really sure what to say about this product, so I guess I'll be honest. I bought the travel size on a road trip and thought it was really good (then again, I was at a volleyball tournament, & I wasn't really wearing any makeup, so not really the best time to judge if it removes makeup or not. Oops.), so I went out and bought the real thing.
Don't do tht.
It sucks at removing mascara. Really. I'M LOSING EYELASHES HERE PEOPLE!!!!! And even then it doesn't get it all off!!! The only reason im finishing off the package is cuz I don't wanna be a waster. And since I want to continue NOT being a waster, I won't repurchase, cuz that's wasting money. Good day people.
I SAID GOOD DAY!!!

I purchased a bundle pack of the Originial Wet Cleansing Towelettes from Target for $9.99. It came with two packs of 30 and a travel pack of 15 wipes. I am always looking for a deal when it comes to cleansing wipes because I go through them quickly, even faster now that my boyfriend has taken a liking to them! :)
These had a wonderful sent to them so I really wanted to like them, but they dried my skin out like crazy! On top of drying my skin, they also clogged my pores and caused me to break out. I made it through my first pack and started the second because I wasn't exactly sure that these were causing my skin issues (living in Minnesota, the weather does all sorts of funky things to your skin as it can be warm one day and then outrageously cold the next). Finally, I decided to give what I had left to my boyfriend to use since he really likes them, but he also has oily/acne prone skin. He'll typically use them halfway throughout the day when he feels the excess oil on his skin. My skin has since then started to get back to normal. So, I would say if you have normal skin on the drier side or dry skin, I would steer clear and recommend the Garnier Cleansing Wipes. Combo/Oily skin types would probably like this product quite a bit. It does the job, just didn't work well for my skin type.

The texture is extremely rough on my semi sensitive face. They have a quilted texture but it's actually rather rough. They look rather soapy upon opening them but it didn't throw me off because they don't sting my eyes upon using them but after using them for a week they leave my face extremely dry. Extremely is actually an understatement. My face feels tight almost to the point of hard to smile and this is not by any means an exaggeration. They do a great job of removing makeup because of the quilted texture but if you have sensitive skin or skin that is dry, stay away. They'll leave your skin dry and irritated like they did mine. My skin now flakes and literally feels leathery. I'm only 21 for crying out loud. My skin should not feel like this. I'm going back to my Simple wipes.

Product started out great. I noticed that my skin began drying out and would flake. I exfoliate with my Clarisonic nightly. I noticed when I didn't use the wipes my skin was not red or flakey. Later I noticed the ingredients listed benzoyl alcohol which was too drying for my skin. I will try the simple brand wipes as well as Huggies wipes for sensitive skin. If its safe for a baby it must be safe for my skin as well.

These were fantastic!! They got off all my makeup (Maybelline Fit Me Foundation) AND Waterproof mascara! The scent is really fresh and clean, and it didn't break me out. Plus, I had a BOGO coupon, so I got 30 pads for $2! What a deal :) Great product overall. The only thing I'm wondering about is the little bag they come in....won't they dry up if they're kept open like that? Hmmmm. So far they're working well though and haven't dried out, so we'll hope for the best! :)

I do like these towelettes. They do a great job of removing makeup. I purchased a travel size of these ( the original scent) at Target to try them and would probably repurchase in the larger size. The smell is fresh but not over powering. They don't sting my eyes. The only issue for me is that they dry out my skin a bit. I'm not sure that I would use them daily for that reason. But for lazy days, late nights and travel I would def. recommend these.

Doesn't take off all my make-up. It does not remove waterproof mascara, and it also did not remove my eyeshadow after I started using eyeshadow primer. It removes most foundation just fine, but I had to really scrub to remove my revlon colorstay foundation. Works great as a refresher and for non-waterproof products, and I gave it an extra lippy for convenience, but I won't buy this again for my needs.
