*Product Battles* My top 3 Make-Up Remover Wipes. Neutrogena Wipes vs. M.A.C. Wipes vs. Ponds Wipes

Clean skin is a given, however like many people, I don’t always feel like getting up to go to the bathroom and wash my face at night.  Having “cheat sheets” come in handy at these times.    I really love using make up remover wipes.  They’re extremely convenient, and if good quality, they’re quite effective.  They’re also good for quick touch ups.  These are three of my favorites below.

#3 M.A.C. Make-Up Remover Wipes

Bulk Wipes
These come in two sizes.  45 pack retails for $18 and the 100 pack retails for $26.   The quality of these are very good.  They are more expensive, but if you buy the 100 pack, it’s a better bargain.  A huge downside to these would be the fact that the wipes at the top of the pack aren’t nearly as moist as the ones at bottom.  I’ve tried turning the pack upside down hoping to get the moisture to go all the way through but that still doesn’t work…at least not as much as I would like it to.  Another downside is the fact that when used to remove my eye make-up, they sometimes burn my eye area. 
#2 Neutrogena Make-Up Remover Wipes

Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes Refill Pack - 25 Count

I purchased these on sale for $3.99 at Krogers Grocery store. I stocked up and bought 4 packs. 🙂 The regular retail price is between $5-7.  I’ve seen a range of prices at different retailers (Walmart, Target, CVS, and Walgreens).   I’d rank these as 2nd out of the three.  The price is pretty reasonable.  They are easy to find at most cosmetics aisles of drug stores and grocery stores.

#1.  Ponds Wet Cleansing Towelettes

These are my favorite of the three.  They retail at  around $4-6 depending on the store.   They are super moist from the beginning to the end of the pack.  Ponds Wipes are thick and quilted so they feel as though you are getting a deep cleansing effect.  They are Dermatologist &Opthalmologist tested as well as safe for contact wearers.
 These wipes  are able to remove waterproof make-up with ease.  This is a huge plus because they never burn my eyes.

I need to mention that I’ve heard fantastic reviews about the Alcone wipes, however I’ve never actually used them.  I do plan to get some though, and I’ll make sure to review them.

I use the Neutrogena wipes most of the time. I've also used the Ponds wipes and the generic store brand replica of the Ponds wipes- they work pretty good. I also love the Walmart (Equate brand) wipes. You can usually buy them in a double-stacked package for around $6 and they're awesome. They come in different options depending on your skin care needs and they don't sting the eyes!

Hmmm, I haven't tried the equate brand yet. I'll definitely have to go get some of those. Thanks!
I've tried the generic brand of the Ponds wipes and those were okay. Thanks for the suggestion!

I forgot to mention that the Ponds wipes come in different versions. I tried the night time calming wipes with chamomile and white tea. OMG! The fragrance was soooo strong, it was hard to use. I'll never buy those again. Nothing was calming or soothing about those at all. LOL!
