Facial Cleansing Towelettes
Beauty Blog: Skin care
All of us have days when we do not have the time or energy to use our face wash and wash our face twice a day. Many beauty companies have realized this and have created cleansing towelettes for this very reason. They have been created for the women on the go, the ones who are too busy or too tried to wash their face in the evening or the ones who have just had a workout and want to wipe their faces. Well just like any other product out there, these are not all the same. Not all of them work the same way and not all of them are great..
In the past I always kept Neutrogena Make Up Remover Wipes in my make-up drawer for the times when I am too tried to wash my face. I have always loved these wipes and that is why I kept them on had. They are great for taking off most make-up including mascara. They do not foam up in any way and I do not feel like I have to wash my face with water after using them.
Here is the product detail on the Neutrogena Make Up Remover Wipes:
7.4 x 7.2 in. Pre-moistened towelettes. Ultra soft cloths. Gently dissolve all traces of make-up, even waterproof mascara. Gentle, ultra soft cloths offer you superior cleansing and make-up removal. Gently and effectively dissolve all traces of dirt, oil and make-up. Patent pending technology is so effective it easily removes waterproof mascara. Leaves skin thoroughly clean with no heavy residue, so there’s no need to rinse. Use daily for clean, fresh, make-up free skin in 1 easy step. Gentle enough to use around sensitive eye area, even for contact lens wearers. Ophthalmologist tested. Dermatologist tested. Allergy tested. Alcohol free. Made in UK. A box with 25 towelettes usually costs between $6.50 and $8.00 depending on where you shop. You can also get the refills once you have the case to store them in.
Another towelette that I tried was Pond’s Clean Sweep, Cleansing & Make-up Removing Towelettes. However I was not nearly as impressed with these towelettes as I was with the ones by Neutrogena. I felt like I had to wash my face off with water after using them. It seemed like they become sudsy when I was using them on my face. I used all 30 of them to make sure that I was really giving the product a chance but in my book, these towelettes fail. Too much work, just like washing my face with my normal cleansing products. However, if you want the product information, it is below.

I however disagree with their statement that no rinsing is necessary! This product can also be found at your local store for about $6.50 - $8.00.
