Got these in a pinch on a trip to San Francisco. They are terrible... burn the face... leave an oily residue behind on the skin in spite of being oil-free (I got the ones in the purple package.) Plus they test on animals (I never would've given these a shot normally but desperate times called for desperate measures.) These wipes smell unpleasant and contain a bunch of alcohol which is extremely drying to the face. It was only around $6 for two packs of 25 (both packs came together as a deal.) But now I have all these face wipes that I'll only use if I can fully clean my skin with water and cleanser afterwards. I give them two lippies because they do take off makeup (with some scrubbing) but there's nothing about them that make them worth repurchasing.

i picked both purple and green wipes for dollar each with cpns.Both leave a burning sensation on my face with the purple faster than the green wipes.
Initially i thought may be because i was wiping too hard or doing something wrong.
But after using both a couple of times,it is indeed the wipes.the burning sensation starts within a minute and i wash my face with cold water.They also tend to leave a thin white film .

I really like these! I use estee lauder double wear foundation and these wipes TAKE IT OFF! And they clean my mascara, liner and lipstick off as well. These have an odd smell...not bad just odd but they work and I keep repurchasing them!

I have a terrible habit of getting home late and not washing my face with a full pancake face full of makeup. My esthetician suggested putting some makeup wipes by my bed. Now as I have these in my makeup basket and wipe my face when I brush my teeth before bed. Makeup wipes can't get your skin as clean as traditional washing, but they help. These are non greasy, nor irritating on my skin. I've already repurchased and will continue using them.

I love these. I have sensitive skin and have had a hard time finding a wipe that actually takes off make-up and isn't irritatating. These are convenient and inexpensive, and work great with my clinique 3 step. Would absolutely buy again.

I am not a makeup remover wipe kind of person (I typically remove my makeup with cleansing oil) but I wanted something quick and mess-free that I could keep in my bag to use to remove my makeup for the gym. For the most part, these towelettes did remove my makeup (save for a bit of stubborn mascara/eyeliner from under my eyes, which I had to go over two or three times to really remove) but I do not recommend these if you have sensitive eyes. I do not and these still made my eyes sting horribly. I mean, I had tears rolling down my cheeks, that's how terrible they were. I ever had to check the package to make sure they were safe for eyes, and apparently, they are.

They also made my face feel sticky (I always rinsed my face afterwards) and I didn't like the perfume-y smell. They're also not as wet as I'd hope they'd be.

Removed makeup well, however stung my eyes for about 30 seconds after use. I've used the eye makeup removers in the purple oil-free packaging since I started using mascara at age 13. Now I'm 25 and still love those eye makeup removers, so I got excited when I saw the face wipes. I don't understand why the face wipes would sting the eyes when the eye makeup remover pads do not. Disappointing. Will use up the pack but not repurchase. Plus the scent is not good- try the PONDS wipes- truly HG especially the purple soothing ones.

These are my favorite make-up removing wipes. I don't know what's up with all the bad reviews, I find that all the other wipes on the market are either too oily or too damn dry to wipe anything off. These are perfect. <3

PURPLE PACKAGE product review: (I think they may have re-worked this product?)

I have very sensitive skin. I think they are quite gentle, and I haven't noticed any dryness or reactions from them. I always rinse my face after using. (they say you don't, but I still do)

Overall I am satisfied with these. (I did pick them up for under a dollar with a coupon) In comparison to the maybelline towelettes, these are much less saturated with product. Although they are a bit dryer, they remove my makeup fully.
I do think the maybelline wipes leave more of a film on your skin, and I do not feel that what I use these. My face feels clean, soft, and not dried out after use.

On a full face, heavy application day, I will grab my maybelline wipes, but for everyday face makeup, this work really nice for me. Mascara comes right off, even with only a couple of swipes. (big plus, because I hate rubbing my eyes over and over to remove makeup)

I literally just used this product about five minutes ago to remove my foundation and "it felt like I was being slapped in the face with fire"- Bethany Mota. It removed the foundation but it burned my face and I have no sun burns or open wounds on my face and my skin isn't even sensitive.
