Close up of Up and Up wipe in my hand.   It’s the same size as the Ponds wipe, but definitely doesn’t feel the same.
Close up of Ponds wipe in my hand.  I love the texture of these wipes.  It’s almost as if I’m using a very soft and gentle towel.  It makes me feel as though my face is being thoroughly cleaned without tingling, burning, or any type of irritation.

Here are my thoughts on how they truly compare.

My first test with any pack of wipes is the amount of moisture they have.  When I opened the pack of Up and Up wipes and took out the wipe, I could immediately see that it wasn’t as wet as the Ponds wipes.  I also noticed that the Up and Up wipes didn’t seem as sturdy as the Ponds wipes.

Overall they’re not bad.  They are about $2 cheaper than the Ponds wipes.  The downside is that I smell the fragrance more in these than in the original Ponds wipes.  I’ve also noticed that I have to be very careful when removing eye makeup.  If I rub too much, my eyes will burn.  I’ve never noticed my eyes burning with the Ponds wipes.
