Soft and nicely scented
I love the convenience of facial wipes but I went off them for awhile because I wanted to avoid the dragging and pulling on my skin that occurs when using a facial wipe. But every now and then, I confess, I just want a quick and easy version of my sometimes rather lengthy skincare routine.
These wipes are mildly fragranced with a lovely, light, fresh, clean scent. The size of the wipes is good too - not too small and not too big. These wipes aren't dripping wet, but they do have ample moisture so I can get a thorough clean with one wipe. And the wipe itself is not too rough. It's soft, but still has a slight bit of texture which adds to the cleaning power of these wipes as they double as a gentle Exfoliator as well.
While I wouldn't make a cleansing wipe a part of my daily cleansing routine, I do like to keep a packet on hand for when I want to simplify my routine. For occasional use, I really can't fault this wipe. For the price and performance, it's pretty great.

Doesn't remove water proof mascara
I received a sample comtaining 7 wipes in my The Parcel subscription box. The wipes were a generous size and very moist. I found the wipes were very gentle and effective at removing all my make up but unfortunately it didn't remove my water proof mascara at all. I am not sure if my mascara is particularly difficult to budge but I was surprised on how ineffective it was.
It did leave my skin cleansed and wipes are handy for times when you just want a quick clean, but it's not my preferred way to cleanse my skin. These would be handy for travelling or late nights when you just to be bothered with a complicated night time skin care routine.
I would have rated this higher if it actually removed my water proof mascara but overall a nice product and maybe something I would purchase if it was on special, to keep on hand.

Best in Beauty 2014 – Gentle, effective, and affordable
The Neutrogena make up remover cleansing towelettes are something I always have on hand in my home. I purchase them in an easy to use re-sealable package that keeps the towelettes from drying out. There are 25 cleansing towelettes in each package. The first thing I always notice and like about these make up remover wipes in comparison to others on the market is that they have a nice smell. They have a very ‘clean’ and fresh smell to them which is not overpowering. I really appreciate the fact that they are alcohol free because otherwise they wouldn't smell as good as they do, and the wipes would not be as hydrating as they are.
The Neutrogena wipes are quite thick in texture which is perfect because it makes sure that they do not tear or rip when removing makeup from the face. They are also very decent in size so they can cover the surface area of the face easily. I use the wipes to first begin removing all traces of my eye makeup, and the wipes manage to do so effortlessly. I do not have to tug or pull on the delicate eye area at all, the product on the towelette works to remove any eye make up gently. On special occasions when I have chosen to wear waterproof eyeliner or mascara, the wipes still manage to remove all traces of it. I stick with the Neutrogena wipes over others because they have never irritated my eyes.
After I have finished removing my eye make up, I then use the wipe to remove my face make up. I find that one cleansing towelette has a sufficient amount of product on it to remove make up from both the face and eye area which is great. The wipe easily breaks down my face make up and leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh. The wipes are very gentle and have never left my skin feeling sensitive or dry. Another thing that stands out about the Neutrogena wipes are the fact that they do not leave a film on the face or any residue which means I do not have to worry about rinsing afterwards.
Although I do not recommend using make up removing wipes every day to take off your make up, they are perfect for those lazy or late nights when you need something effective and easy. They are also great to freshen up with during the hot summer months. For a pack of 25 and a price tag of $7.99, these wipes are convenient, affordable and leave my skin feeling nice and cleansed.

I use these when I go to the gym after work. They remove make up quickly and easily and are so convenient. They have a pleasant smell. I don't use these to remove make up daily, only as a quick fix for the gym.

If I was honest I would say that before I purchased these wipes on a whim I never took my make up off at night. I don't like washing my face the traditional way unless I'm in the shower. The ease of this product has made me a fan. With just one wipe it removes my make up and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and soft. At first it leaves a bit of moisture but it is quickly absorbed. The smell of the wipes is also pleasant. A definite must try!

So extremely easy to remove makeup.
Picks up everything I put on my face including eyeliner and stubborn mascara. I do find with sound mascaras though I need to constantly wipe over it until it is gone but I assume that's normal.
I use the makeup wipes before bed and in the morning to ensure I have a clean base to apply makeup on.
I do wish that they had more in a packet though. 25 doesn't last me long and even though they are relatively they are cheap I have to buy a new one every 2 weeks which sucks.
But other than those points, definitely worth a try.

Broke me out
Soon after I started using these I got these bumps underneath my skin on my forehead. At first I didn't realise what was causing them but once I narrowed it down, these were the problem. Yes they removed my face make up pretty well, but they didn't remove my eye make up at all and broke me out so these are not for me. I also felt like the towlettes were too wet for me and left my skin greasy.

I agree with the other comments. These wipes are fantastic!! I always have problems with my eye lashes falling out from wiping too hard, but tees wipes make it so much easier. Love them!
All make up removal.

I haven't used these for a while, but am going to assume that they are the wipes that used to come in a periwinkle blue packet.
I absolutely ADORED these wipes. They were absolutely saturated in makeup remover, to the point where I could hold them against one eye for a few seconds, swipe and they'd remove even stubborn waterproof mascara like Covergirl LashBlast Volume.
Most wipes claim to come saturated in makeup remover, but these were *saturated* - other brands I'd tried felt like I was rubbing a paper towel on my face in comparison. They do leave an oily residue on the face afterward that requires cleansing, suggesting that these are possibly soaked with oil-based makeup remover.
The only reason I don't purchase these anymore is the price - they're at least $8 which I balk at when I can purchase a bottle of baby shampoo which is just as effective. I'm also a bit iffy about Neutrogena's animal testing policy, and I do try to stay away from brands that test (though my resolve is sometimes weaker than I'd like...)

Does the job!
I love these! Just one wipe thoroughly removes all traces of my makeup and leaves my face feeling clean, soft and fresh.
They're perfect for those big nights out when all you want to do after you get home is collapse into bed, but you don't dare go to sleep without taking off all that makeup. So you resign yourself to the tedious task of cleansing twice and rubbing your eyes with cotton balls and buds dipped in removers.
I keep a packet in my bathroom and another in my handbag. I will always repurchase these!
