REVIEW: Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes

First I have to say, "Where have you been all my life?!". Wow. I heard these were good, and I'm so glad I picked some up! I've been looking for a makeup remover that can remove hard to remove makeup without tugging at my skin and having to keep going over the same area again and again. These pre-soaked clothes remove foundation, eye makeup, and even waterproof mascara so easily! They are gentle on my skin and eyes, but leave a slight tingle feeling which makes me feel clean. For my own purpose, I will probably only use these for eye makeup removal and cut the sheets into halves or quarters (since only 25 come in a pack and I'm not about to use a whole sheet on my eyes). I like my current skin care routine so that's why I'm not using these for my full face, but on lazy days I will definitely be using these to remove all my makeup.

I was really confused in buying these because on the internet I saw a blue package that said "Cleansing Towelettes" and these are "Wipes" in a yellow package. Can anyone clear this up for me? Are they the same thing? Anyways, this particular kind works wonderfully for me and I will definitely be re-purchasing these when I'm finished.

After using the sheets they kinda reminded me of those Rorschach Ink Blot tests Psychiatrists used back in the day to determine if you had an underlining psychological problem.

Some Doctors still use these today, but seriously... how valid and reliable are these tests? So many flaws...anyways, I'm going on a tangent... remember, I'm a major in Psychology so I have lots of opinions in this field! LOL

Just for jokes... do you see anything in this sheet?

If you see makeup... you have an addiction. LOL

In all seriousness, look at all the makeup it took off my face! It got EVERYTHING and it could have got even more if I was wearing a ton of makeup. If you haven't tried these I HIGHLY recommend picking some up. They can be a bit pricey if you use a whole sheet every single day. For the amount of makeup I wear, half a sheet would be sufficient so I'll end up cutting them up (in halves or quarters) depending on if I'm using them on my whole face or just my eyes.


  1. ive used the ones in the light blue package, but i'll try these too just for fun! <3

  2. i used to use the ones in the blue package as well but they irritated my eyes ! :( i use baby wipes now but these wipes definitely look like they remove more make up. i love the comparison to the ink lot test haha ♥

  3. funny jokes!!! hehe i think i need some of these. i hate when i have be tugging at my skin over and over again. great review!

  4. i've used the ones in the light blue package curious to try the purple package they say its for nightime and since i remove my makeup at nite i wonder if it makes a difference...they're like $3 dollars at Walmart btw =)

  5. ooh i wanna try these! u should check out the costco daily wipes! love them!

  6. I love that I'm not the only one who feels the need to change their background every few weeks. I was just looking at this one yesterday and loved it, so good choice! As for these sheets I'll have to give them a try, I've been using the Boots ones, but they're starting to be a bit drying.

  7. I am going to try these! I always have a hard time removing mascara! I am excited to see how these work. Great idea to cut them up as well, I never though of that.....

  8. @MissAmira - I saw those ones too, I will have to pick them up next and see how they compare!

    @Jen - I'll have to check them out next time I'm at Costco! Thanks!

    @Emily - hahaha you've noticed I'm a bit indecisive. lol. I actually had yours for a day a month or two ago and it kept not showing up for some reason. I loveee your background!

    @Jules - definitely give these a try. I would never have thought to use these, but they work wonders at removing all my makeup (as you can tell by how my sheet looked after and I wasn't even wearing that much makeup!)

  9. WOW, that looks amazing! I haven't used those, I'll pick em up when I finish all my current makeup removers :)
    I too love to chang emy background, prolly every couple weeks, lol
    Thanks for the post! btw - I know you've already ben nominated, but I nominated you again anyways :)

  10. mm i've tried wipes before to remove my makeup but i always feel like it didn't get everything and i always wash my face after anyway...but i might try these!!
    the lipgloss is okay, there's basically no color, just some shimmer so that kinda sucks but whatever the packaging is just too pretty to not get it!

  11. you don't have a tjmaxx or marshall's in Canada? I didn't know that!

    I think I will pick up the NARS stuff for a giveaway, but by the time I reach 50 subscribers it will be summer 2010!!!

  12. LOL I love how you can compare a used makeup wipe to Pyshchiatric Ink Blot tests!! thats funny as!! haha thanks for this rveiew!! Although I feel that Neautrogena is too harsh for my overly sensitive skin :) x

  13. hahaha ur so silly i get to watch watchmen as part of my final for one of my classes =]
    i gotta try these wipes

  14. Nutregena has always stood up for quality and friendly behavior to all types skin.All their products are very good and therefore this should also be good.It is a very easy and good way to remove makeup specially when traveling.
