If you checked out my most recent haul post then you know these Yes to Cucumber Face Wipes (or Facial Towelettes like they call them, fancy!) were part of my haul. I have used these for a few days now and wanted to share with you girls my experience with them. I have to admit, I was sold on these because of the packaging, it's bright green and looks cute! The package states that the wipes are "blended with organic cucumber, aloe vera and dead sea minerals" which definitely grabs attention. Previously I used the Neutrogena ones (really the only brand of face wipes I used ever until these). One thing I really like about the cucumber ones is that well they smell like cucumbers and it's super refreshing. So I thought it would feel good on my skin and it does! I like the fact that these are 98.7% natural, oil free, alcohol free, biodegradable but I don't really think they are that effective taking make-up off.
Taking off foundation and powder wasn't that difficult with these wipes though with Neutrogena ones I find it to be much more easier and gentler. When it comes to mascara and eyeliner, they are just impossible. I am a girl that loves her eye make-up and I wear eye make-up daily, for that reason I need something that takes off my eye make-up and something that doesn't require too much energy to do so. These wipes just don't do a good job taking it off, I had to actually rub my eyes to see if that helps and I'm sorry to say it didn't. I had to continue with my eye make-up remover. I think the cloth could be a bit softer also. After all these wipes are meant to be used on faces which is a sensitive body part. I also feel that they are a bit drying on my skin. I feel like immediately following with my moisturizer right after using them which isn't the case with Neutrogena ones at all. In fact with Neutorgena wipes, I just wipe and go. I am not sure if I'd repurchase these. I think they may be more helpful for someone who doesn't wear as much make-up and especially mascara and eyeliner daily and who just needs to freshen up during or at the end of their day. I need something more heavy-duty so next I'm planning to try the MAC ones. I believe these wipes are around $5 for a package of 30.
