I think these facial cloths are really good for removing makeup, however I do find some residue left when I use a toner over my face. I do cut each wipe into two, as I think one of these halves is good enough for one wash. But I don't tend to use a lot of makeup daily. Plus this will make it last you a long time. So on days I do use more makeup I use the entire facial cloth. I will repurchase it because I haven't found a good alternative yet.
Toners -Clean & Clear - Deep Cleaning Astringent-Sensitive Skin (blue)

I have had this product for a long time. I used it a couple of times all over my face but I felt it made me break out even more. Therefore it was just lying in my cabinet. After couple of months, I decided to use this again when I suddenly broke out all over my face. I figured since its deep cleansing astringent, it will remove all the oil and dirt out of the infected areas. At night, I just use a Q-tip and dip it in the bottle and apply it on the active acne spots instead of all of my face , as I feel it can be harsh. The next day, I find it had reduced my spots a lot and had even reduced the redness. Therefore ever since then I have always used this to help cleanse out acne bumps on my skin.
Medium coverage. Long lasting. Mattifies which is awesome for me since I really oily skin, mainly my T-zone. I don't really use the sponge that comes along with it, since I found it takes up a lot of product but not much gets on your on the face.Therefore I use a powder foundation brush which gets the job done perfectly! It does cause me to break out a little but nothing major just a tiny zit or two. It does make your skin look a little dull since its powdery therefore I use a makeup mist after, to make my skin look more natural.

It does not have any smell. Watery -gel consistency. Light-Mild cleansing properties. I like how gentle it is but I have really oily skin and this didn't do much for me. Didn't reduce the oil on my skin. Didn't help with my acne either.
Love this mask! It has a mild smell.I have really oily skin,so this baby sucks up all that oil and dirt out of your face! So I use 1-2 times a week or two weeks depending on how bad my skin has been. I thought it would be moisturizing as well since it has avocado in it but it dry my skin quite a bit, so I use an oil free moisturizer right after.It dried up my zits and reduced the their size as well. It can be a little hard to wash off, but I have found that to be the case for most clay masks.

I have a really oily T-zone so I mostly use this over this area. I use this under my makeup, it is very mattifying, however I don't find it long lasting throughout the day. After a few hours I felt it gets a bit flaky, but I think it depends on how much you apply on a certain area. You really need a very thin layer, for it to not flake.This is what worked for me. Has an mild smell. Hate the packaging, as its in a tub and you need to dip your finger in and I find that very unhygienic. Lasts you a long time depending on how much and how frequently you use it.I tend to use this daily in the summer because that is when my T-zone is most oily.
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Morning Burst Facial Cleanser

I like the smell of this cleanser - moderate fruity scent I have oily skin and this really dried me out (uncomfortable, really tight feeling after you wash it off) and I have never had such an extremely drying reaction from other cleansers that I have used in the past. Didn't do much of cleansing as it claimed, overall did not work for me at all!
