Last week I went to Ulta to use my 20% off coupon and to purchase Revlon Lip Butters which were on sale for 40%. While in line, I decided to check out the travel size products and I noticed they had Yes to Cucumbers and Yes to Blueberries Facial Towelettes available. Since I’m always on the hunt for good wipes, I decided to give them a try. Yes to Cucumbers wipes were recommended to me a couple of months ago after I reviewed the Noxema wipes and was highly disappointed. I figured if I didn’t like them, at least I didn’t spend a lot of money and I wouldn’t be stuck with a lot of them.
So what are my thoughts? They are so much better than the Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes, that I tried last week. I like them but I’m not in love with them. Everything was great about these wipes except for two things:
- The Fragrance. I could tolerate it with the Say Yes to Blueberries wipes, but the fragrance in Say Yes To Cucumber wipes was very strong. I can smell it through the packaging.
- My eyes burned. When removing my eye makeup, there was some burning after a while. I’d recommend just placing the wipe on the eye for a while to let the makeup dissolve then very gently wiping it off. Don’t just rub your eyes with these wipes.
I’d consider repurchasing the Say Yes to Blueberries, if I couldn’t get my Ponds wipes for some reason, but not the Say Yes to Cucumbers. I’d still recommend them though if you’re not sensitive to fragrances and don’t have problems with wipes burning your eyes. The wipes are very sturdy yet soft. I love the size of them. On both packs, the very first wipe was moist. I was able to remove my make up with 3 Say Yes To Blueberry Wipes, and 2 Say Yes To Cucumber wipes (for some reason, my eyes burned more with the Cucumber than Blueberry so I had to stop).
Have you tried these wipes before?
