I love a good face wipe but even when I find one I like I can’t stop myself from trying a new one. Of course, it’s kind of my job to try new beauty products as well but even if I wasn’t a beauty blogger you would still find me trying a new pack of cleansing wipes every month. This time around I selected the new Vitamins & Extracts Cleansing Wipes from Clearasil. It’s the newest addition to their DailyClear range and it promises to remove makeup and impurities from the skin while being gentle enough for daily use. Does it perform? Read my review to find out.
- Packaging of these wipes are the standard design – a plastic pouch with a resealable flap in the middle of the packet. I used these wipes over a period of 30 days and in that time the seal did not become weak, allowing the wipes to stay moist and not dry out.
- The wipe is a regular size, large enough to remove a face of makeup depending on how much is applied. The cloth itself is very moist, enough so that your skin has a fair amount of residue left behind afterwards.
- The cloth texture is on par with most drugstore competitors but a little rougher than top-shelf versions. It felt fine on my skin most of the time but on patches of sensitivity or breakouts it wasn’t ideal. I’m able to wipe over an area 2 or 3 times before it feels scratchy.
- A pack of 25 is the only size available. I found this sufficient for a months worth of use as I did not wear makeup every single one of those days.
- I do like to use wipes as a one-step solution of an evening when I’m too tired to remove my makeup and wash my face properly. My trial consisted of using it in that scenario 80% of the time but I also trialled it as a pre-cleanser to washing my face the traditional way.
- I found one wipe removed the majority of my facial makeup without much effort. I needed to hold it on my eyes for a few seconds to melt the makeup before attempting to wipe otherwise it didn’t remove much. On the eyes it felt a little rough, even if I held the cloth on for up to one minute. I personally would not recommend using these for eye makeup removal unless you are wearing as little as one powder eyeshadow.
- As a pre-cleanse step I was happy with the results. It removed the bulk of the makeup and didn’t leave any visible traces on my skin, but it didn’t necessarily feel like I cleansed my skin to the standard I like.
- As a one-step solution I was happy to use it on occasion but as mentioned above, I didn’t feel like it was a cleanse thorough enough for me to do every day.
- I did have a slight reaction to the wipes around my nostrils, which is common for me if something is too harsh or physically irritating. I believe it to be the texture of the wipes as opposed to the formula because the irritation was restricted to just the nostril area and if it were the formula I would have broken out in my other common areas (chin and outer corners of my lips).
- The scent of these wipes are the same as the other products in the Vitamins & Extracts range – it’s like fresh green apples. I find this scent to be refreshing.
