Face wipes are an important part of my nightly skin care routine because it’s the best way to remove makeup and prep my skin for moisturizer. I have a few brands I tend to alternate between on a regular basis – mainly Neutrogena and Yes to Cucumbers- but these Clean & Clear towelettes have quickly become my new favorite.
I got these at Target for $5.29, which is a fairly good price except for the fact the package only comes with 25 wipes. Most other brands have 30, so I was a little butthurt about getting five less wipes. I know it’s only five, but still – that’s five days worth of cleansing. Luckily for the people at Clean and Clear the product is exceptional enough that I can get over getting cheated out of that much product.
The magic of these wipes is in the texture of the sheet itself, as you can see from this here handy dandy photo I included for your viewing pleasure. The wipes are soft, but the teeny little holes seem to help them swipe all that yucky makeup right off your face. They also smell surprisingly pleasant considering the packaging says it “dissolves makeup,” which makes me think they would smell more like some sort of industrial solvent than a skin care product.
When they say these things dissolve makeup, they really dissolve makeup. One wipe takes every last bit of makeup, dirt and oil off my face – even all my eye makeup. That’s no easy feat considering how much black eyeliner and mascara I pile on, as you can see from the wipe I used last night. It’s kinda funny how the makeup looks so fabulous on the face, yet it looks so gross when you look at whats left on a cleansing towelette. It almost makes me wanna stop wearing makeup. Almost.
My favorite thing about these is how cool, refreshed and clean my skin feels afterwards. The biggest test of their cleansing power however comes the next morning. Other cleansing wipes tend to leave a little mascara underneath my eyes, which usually ends up on my pillow-case. With these however, not a trace!
So to sum it: clean skin, clean pillow cases. What more can one ask for in a cleansing wipe?
Final Verdict: Love it.
