These towelettes gets all the makeup off. The scent is overbearing sometimes so if you are sensitive to scents then maybe this isn't for you. I love how wet each towelette is because it takes makeup off like a dream. You can get them at discounted prices in bulk at certain stores or when they go on sale it's definitely a steal. Also doesn't irritate my face after using it either.

I really enjoyed these wipes. I used to swear by them when I was younger and did cheerleading, when we would have to wear glitter from the lid to the brow bone. I hadn't used them for a few years, and decided to pick them up again to see if I still liked them as much as I used to. Yes I still do!

These wipes are definitely soapier than the average makeup wipe, as they really suds up. This makes it great for removing face and eye makeup though. The texture on the wipes is great too, they area quilted texture and they are a lot more durable than most makeup wipes that might rip and tear. I only need one wipe with these to remove all of my face and eye makeup. I will say one drawback for me personally, is that they can have a tendency to sting my eyes a little bit. Pretty much all makeup wipes do that, so I really only use these if I am in a pinch and don't have the time/energy to use a cleansing oil or micellar water. The packaging could also be improved, as with most makeup wipes that have the sticker packaging, the sticker doesn't always seal them back super tight so they can dry out if not stored upside down.

Overall, I think these are an excellent makeup wipe and I would repurchase.

Bought this package in place of my regular makeup wipes because they weren't available. I used the whole package, but I won't repurchase. I found these too soapy, and they stung my eyes when I removed eye makeup. They also did not fully remove my mascara or black liquid liner. I also hated the packaging, just a sticky top on the top that, after a while, stops being sticky. Going back to my Boots No7 makeup wipes, which are better in EVERY way!

The towelette is thick and cushiony, feels very luxurious and foams nicely, but the formula is too slippery and it smears makeup like mascara. Worst of all, it stings. I tried two packages just to be sure I didn't get a bad batch. These wipes made me not want to bother trying their Citrus Cucumber Exfoliating Renewal version, as I was worried about stinging, but surprisingly, those are far more gentle and effective.

If they weren't so slippery and astringent, they would make a good follow up as a moisturizing partner in a duo with Exfoliating Renewal.

I have been using these for years and they are one of those products I cannot do without. Holiest of holy grails.

Some of the ingredients include chamomile extract, green tea extract, white tea extract and honeybush extract, all which are known for soothing skin. I have to say my favorite part about these cleansing wipes are how saturated they are in the gentle cleanser; not soaking, but wet enough to foam and release more when squeezed. I adore how textured the cloths are because it gives you the option to scrub and exfoliate or simply glide them across your skin. It takes off any foundation and eyeliner like a dream, but if you have a lot of mascara, expect to use two wipes or need something after this to really get it off.

I had a really bad reaction to a new foundation and this was the only thing I trusted on my skin. I gently swiped them across the irritated areas, which wasn't just refreshing; the red dots actually began to simmer down ten minutes after using this wipe. It's also the only alternative to washing my face that still makes me feel clean.

Have I mentioned how soft these make my skin? I have to. All day, my skin is incredibly soft after using these. After I'm finished cleansing and gently exfoliating my face, wiping these down the back of my neck and across my shoulders in summer is absolute heaven. It's like a little bird bath, always a total lifesaver after the gym or a long afternoon.

Gentle, smells clean and fairly priced. My one complaint is that the packaging does not keep them as moist as they first are after opening, but transferring them to a zipped sandwich bag makes this easy to avoid. I repurchase these like an absolute heathen so every part of my house has them stashed away somewhere if I want to freshen up throughout the day.

My absolute favorite makeup wipes - I have been using these since I was a teenager (almost 15 yrs!) In that time my skin has gone from super oily (teen years) to combo (oily tzone, dry everywhere else) and these wipes still work for my skin. I buy this in bulk and hunt for deals whenever possible.

The wipes do not remove make up as well as a cleansing oil, but you can't compare a wipe to a liquid that can get into every crevice on your face. The only other wipes I have used are Neutrogena wipes, but these remove make up better.

I the ridges as they give a cleaner feel when removing make up. It feels like it really picks up the gunk of my face as I wipe. These also do not sting my eyes/face like Neutrogena wipes do. One sheet is usually enough for my full face of make up (foundation and everything)...on make-up less days, I cut a half sheet out to remove sunscreen, which I wear daily as part of my skincare regime.

These don't really remove mascara or stubborn eyeliner very well, but I use a liquid make up remover right on these wipes after removing my face make up. No need to get a separate tissue/cotton ball.

I always wash my face after using these wipes. They are just wipes - they aren't meant to take the place of a good face wash.

Took lippies off for the packaging - sometimes the sticker and the pack don't lay flat together. This lets in air and starts drying out the package. The last one or two wipes can dry out if you're not vigilant about checking the flap is closed when you stick it back on.

I did not like these towelettes at all. For review's sake: I have sensitive fair skin and wear full makeup daily. They are too rough and soapy (when first opened), yet don't really remove makeup at all, and the package dries our quickly (but this doesn't improve the overly-soapy quality at all), and most importantly, they dry out my skin and create flakies and redness on me. Not good. Maybe these would be better for someone with oily, non-sensitive skin who doesn't wear makeup...? I would never recommend these. I am much better off with the Aveeno sensitive skin wipes (beige package) or the L'Oreal or Neutrogena ones.

I really like these. It gets off everything from my foundation to my mascara. You get 30 wipes for $3 or $4 and they get every little bit off. Love it.
