Face Wipe Face Off

Favorite Face Wipes
I realize that I have tried a lot of face wipes this past year so I thought I would give you a list of my absolute favorites along with two that completely missed the mark.
In the cleansing category, I just love these Yes To Blueberry wipes and the Pond's Original wipes.  The Yes To wipes smell amazing and both leave my skin clean and fresh.  These Pond's wipes really have no scent but they work extermely well.  Both work well on removing dirt and oil and makeup.  I've even used them on my eyes without any burning or irritation.
In the soothing category, I love Yes To Cucumber wipes and Pond's Evening Soothe.  They both leave my skin clean and fresh - oh and soothed.  I love the scent of the Pond's wipes and the Yes To Cucumbers have a mild cucumber scent.  I have used these to remove makeup but I would probably save these for an after the shower or in the morning before putting makeup on since there not really classified for "cleansing".  I have used these on my eyes and did not have any burning or irritation.
In the exfoliating category, I have used Simple Exfoliating and Yes to Grapefruit.  I love both of these but use them for different things.  The Simple Exfoliating wipes are a bit on the dry and rough side.  I like to use these on dry skin patches I get around this time of the year.  It removes them without leaving behind any sign of dryness.  I use them in the morning before putting on my makeup primer so my face is super smooth.  The Yes to Grapefruit are a tiny bit wetter and a tiny bit less rough.  However, the grapefruit definetly works its magic on your skin.  These I would use before bed because my face does get a bit pink after using them - so much so that my husband has noticed.  Neither are too rough but the Yes To might be a little overpowering to someone with sensitive skin.  The Simple exfoliating have no scent and the Yes To Grapefruit have that great fresh citrus smell yet it doesn't linger for long.
Onto the FAILS - First, Almay makeup wipes, these are EVIL!  They burn and burn the heck out of your eyes.  They are extremely wet wipes so I have been soaking the product up with a Qtip and using that for touch ups but I definitely PASS on the wipes but perhaps purchase their liquid makeup remover.  Second, the Simple cleansing, there is just nothing to love.  The wipes are borderline dry yet soft so there's really nothing going on when you wipe them on your face.  They leave behind too much dirt and oil and makeup.  I think the dryness works well in the Simple exfoliating wipe but the cleansing ones definetly need a bit more moisture to get the job done.
If you want to purchase one out of each category I would recommend the following set up:
Pond's Original for cleaning, Pond's Evening Soothe for soothing and Simple Exfoliating for exfoliating.  All of these you can usually find on sale at Target.  I've gotten a lot of them for under a $1 a pack.  {Leave a comment if you want to know how to save $$}  The Yes To brand is a more natural product so I definitely would recommend those as well - I've also gotten each pack on a pretty good sale - I think under $2 a pack {again leave a comment if you want to know how to save $$}.
Since I've only tried three brands - let me know your favorite face wipes!


  1. I usually use Ponds or Neutragena for wipes but I've been trying to do the actual clean my face for reals a non lazy girl way. It only works out half the time.

  2. Love Ponds ... haven't tried Neutrogena ... perhaps I'll add them to my must try list.

    Thanks for your comments!
    OMG - I know ... Berger ... ahhhh Berger!! {I seriously saw him in Boardwalk Empire and had a distaste for him because he was Berger ... lol Post-it grudge ... YES!} Yeah I think I am like you it's good in theory but once you open that pandora's box ... it can get pretty scary ... FAST! So, I am leaning towards saying yes ... cozy weekend wear AT HOME and bed time are the only appropriate times.

    Thanks for your comments!

12 Things You Need for Successful Weight Loss

1) Get your head in the game! Weight loss doesn't happen without dedication.  You have to have the mindset to get it done.  I've said in the past that motivation for me is like a light switch ... when it's on it is ON.  Even though motivation is one of the key things you need ~ you also need patience, understanding, time, and willpower.  You have to make a commitment to yourself and stick with it. 2) Track your progress! Tracking keeps you honest to yourself.  Without tracking you can sabotage yourself into overeating.  For example, tell me EVERYTHING you ate on Friday off the top of your head, not so easy right?  Also, there are tons of apps out there that you can quickly track or you can do it the old fashion way of writing it down.  Find what works for you and do it daily.  Also, as a rule I normally track my whole day in the morning.  Breakfast, Lunch, Snack & Dinner.  This also keeps me in track.  I can budget out my day and make changes if things arise or when y…

It's Okay Thursday/Hello Monday #5

... to be so productive that you "forget" to blog!

... to have tire issues on April Fool's Day and have to preface every text with ... this is NOT an April Fool's joke.

... to buy 11 items from the dollar days area at Target in an effort to get organized.  {hmmmm ... maybe a good idea for a blog post.}

... to forget to finish this post!

Hello Monday#5 It is truly amazing how much better my makeup and hair look on the weekend. So if you have never tried Starbucks Via Iced Coffee - I highly recommend. So I just watched Into the Woods over the weekend.  Why did the music sound EXACTLY like Sweeney Todd? Seriously I even googled that sh!t and came up with nothing. Why is it on weekends I am all about managing my down time  like it was my last meal or something.  Um no, I cannot do XYZ,  that is a total lack of consideration to my weekend of staying at  home and doing nothing for 48 hours straight.  
How are you doing today?
