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!
