I keep repurchasing these. I know, you can get equally good ones for less, but you get 50 wipes instead of 25 (like with most makeup wipes), and they don’t break me out, don’t irritate or dry out my skin and (what may sound weird), I love their scent.
I use wipes as a first step in my makeup removing routine, then I proceed with cleanser. They just do their job.

I like these more than I expected. They don’t completely remove mascara but I use them before washing my face and that combination is the best I’ve tried so far for mascara removal. I haven’t used them without washing my face yet and my face feels a little greasy after using a wipe before washing. If they really removed the mascara like the woman at the store told me they would I would give them 5 stars instead of 4.

I don't know what it is with me and cleansing towelettes/makeup wipes. Even though they are incredible for traveling, they always break me out and this one is no different. I thought I might have a better reaction since I like Clinique's Take the Day off Cleansing Balm, but I didn't. These are better than most since they're unscented. But the packaging isn't great. It's difficult to get just one wipe out at a time.

I purchased on a whim at Ulta. I have sensitive mature skin and I've had no problem using these wipes. This product removes my mascara (Aveda Mosscara) with several swipes and as well as my Hourglass foundation. I follow up with my facial cleanser and water in the shower. I don't get the negative reviews on this product or the packaging. Also, I would never rely on just using wipes for thoroughly cleansing my skin. I always follow up with a mild facial cleanser and warm water while bathing or taking a shower.

I bought these based on beautypedia's assessment and I'm not really impressed. The towels are thin and come out in 3's, which is a pain because they do not go back in easily. I do like the closure on the package but the cleansing juice is a little harsh and still doesn't clean all that well. I doubt if I will buy again. Still searching for my perfect facial wipe that is thick, cushioning and cleans well without harshness.

I love the original Take off the Day eye makeup remover, so when I saw this in duty free, I was excited to try it. Unfortunately, there are some issues with this product. First, the towelettes are rough on the skin and not soft at all. Secondly, they are greasy and the solution stings my skin. I can't even use them to remove lipstick. I would not recommend these to anyone who has sensitive skin. I'm disappointed that I am stuck with a product I can't use for another purpose and also don't feel good about passing them on to someone else.
EDIT: I found that I can use these to wipe off the foundation from my hands after makeup application. Yay for finding a use!

These cloths don't do a great job of makeup removal IMO. Especially mascara, forget it! So much product gets left behind it's not even funny. And I also found that I had to use a bunch of them each time.

But one thing these cloths are good for, and I will probably buy them again because of this, is removing hair dye stains from my skin. They are really good for that! The dye just erases off.

Great packaging, I like that the dispenser has a snap-closure. And the towels are all super-moist, not like similar products with dried-out towels.

Like I said, I would buy these again for a specific purpose. But for makeup removal and general face-cleansing, there are many better products out there.

I like these but I'm not obsessed I do like that this is quick and easy to use I've used this to remove eye makeup but I still rather use a separate eye makeup remover anyway. Just because every time I use a wipe no matter what brand weather its drugstore brand or high end they always break my lashes off and I don't like to rub on my eyes it's just so irritating. I do like that this does remove my foundation and complexion products and it isn't drying I also never have had a reaction to this either so it's good for sensitive skin I do recommend if you want to splurge other than that I wouldn't pay $15 for this when you can buy something cheaper that does the same thing

Excellent cleanser! These are the ONLY makeup remover wipes that don't sting my eyes. One cloth removes a day's worth of sunscreen, makeup, and environmental grime. These are extremely gentle and refreshing. I carry a small pack with me everywhere.

I always keep a package of makeup removal towelettes around because, even though skin care experts say they're not as good at cleansing skin as regular cleansers, there are times when I come home late at night, too tired to do my regular skin care routine but still not wanting to go to bed wearing makeup.

This is a new product from Clinique and I've got to say, I'm not impressed. These towelettes are no better than a drugstore brand like Neutrogena (actually, the Neutrogena is better). Although I try to get every last speck of eye makeup off, the next morning I still have black mascara smudges under my eyes. I find the packaging is a problem, too: you lift off the cover and pull out the towelettes from an opening underneath, but the opening is so small that I have a lot of trouble pulling out one at a time and invariably end up with two or three.
