The Leader of the Pack...
Well there are facial cleansing wipes…and then there’s Neutrogena Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes. These little beauties are in a league of their own. I was quite content with the ones I had for late night emergencies, but after trying this pack, I’m tempted to ditch my regular make-up remover altogether. These stretchy towelettes are super moist, super thick, super soft, super strong, super cleansing and super fast. They melt away all traces of makeup (including waterproof mascara) in a flash. The fragrance is gentle and unobtrusive – just a quick wipe and my face is cool, clean, soft, and ready for the next stage of my regime. No irritation either, not even around my sensitive eye area.
They’re also magical for cleaning makeup brushes in between regular weekly washes – easily removes waterproof gel liner, foundation, and eye-shadow. There’s no residue either, so I can use the same brush to apply a different product. Awesome! No wonder there’s a patent pending…

The best wipes I have ever used
I am a loyal user of the wipes (cleansing towelettes ), they are so gentle on the skin and I love the calming scent. I use the Night Calming Towelettes (the purple packaging ones) and I store them when Priceline runs specials :) It temoves every bit of my mascara without irritating the eyes. The best part about using this is, they don't dry over time (unlike some of the others I've used). The packaging keeps them moist for a long time. I usually wash my face after using any make up wipes (Its a habit - I don't get the 'clean feel' otherwise). However, with these wipes, I don't have to wash my face afterwards and I get a clean, moistrurised feeling even when I wake up in the morning.

Perfect for us lazy people
I'll admit I was doubtful about these wipes, as so many wipes out on the market don't clean that well or really irritate my skin. These wipes were surprisingly good. They removed make up very effectively without scratching or making my skin red. Even when I wasn't wearing makeup, these wipes were great for when I was in the rush in the morning or really tired at night.
These are cheap too, which is always a plus. The only downside yet to be seen is how quickly they will dry out.

I have found Neutrogena Make-Up Remover Cleansing Towelettes really handy. They are easy to use and do a great job at removing All make-up.I don't think that they take the place of a proper cleansing routine but are great to use when you don't have the time for this.

Clean and Fresh!
Having trailed these for the past week I am really happy with the results! I have used quite a few other make- up removers before and most of them although they do the job are not as gentle as these wipes were on my skin. I wear mainly eye make-up and most other make- up removers I have used in the past sting if I get any in my eye whilst trying to remove my eyeliner. But these wipes were so gentle I didn't have to be so careful and take a long time to get the job done. The packaging was simple which made it easy to store in my make-up bag. I also love the re-sealable pack so that the wipes stay very moist and fresh. I'm not really fussed on how a product smells unless I really dislike it. But these were pretty much fragrance free so no complaints there. The wipes are so easy to use. I just need one to do my whole face. When using these before I shower each night after a long day at work they helped me to start to unwind and relax. After using them my face felt so refreshed and clean!

So much better than I expected!
I have never been a big fan of any of the wide variety of makeup remover towelettes I have tried, so when I received these makeup remover towelettes to trial from Beauty Heaven, I have to admit I was bit dubious.
Nevertheless, I decided to give them a try and looking back, I am so glad I did!
I was concerned that these might irritate my skin, as I have found other brands of makeup wipes too harsh, but after using these daily I have not experienced any redness, stinging or breakouts. I love the fact that these were gentle on my skin, yet removed all of my makeup so effectively; even the usually tricky long-last lipstick and waterproof mascara.
The towelettes themselves are soft, and thin enough to be flexible when using them to remove makeup. They seem to be saturated with the perfect amount of product in order to effectively remove all traces of my makeup, without leaving too much of an uncomfortable residue (though I still used my regular cleanser aftwerwards to remove any extra traces before moisturising). I did need to hold the towel over my lashes for quite a while to break-down the water-proof formula, but the ease of a single product to remove all of my makeup definitely compensates for any time lost.
There is a slight fragrance, however it is not overpowering and quite pleasant.
These would be so perfect for travel as they’re quick and convenient to use, the packaging doesn’t add extra bulk or weight and they won’t cut into the strict on-board liquid restrictions. My only concern is that the plastic sticker may not be very effective at creating a complete seal to prevent leakage or stop the wipes from drying out before they’re all used, though keeping the packet in a zip-lock bag would probably help combat this.
Overall, I am really pleased to have discovered the Neutrogena Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes, and though I probably wouldn’t use these every day, I definitely intend to keep them on hand for when I am in a rush, or those nights where I just can’t be bothered! Thank you BH!!

Easy solution for lazy nights
Keep a packet of these beauties in your travel bag ready for any trips that you may go on. These can be a real time saver and face saver when you are too tired to complete a full traditional cleanse.

Lightning speed makeup removal
I actually dislike using cleansing towelettes because I think they're so wasteful and I prefer using muslin cloths which are reuseable.
These Neutrogena towelettes are pretty good - it doesn't take long to remove all the makeup from your face and it leaves a nice after-feel.
These towelettes are lightly scented - a soft powdery floral type of scent - and feel ultra soft.
My skin be sensitive towards certain ingredients and fragrances but I had no adverse reaction from this product at all.
Even though I said I don't like cleansing towelettes, I think these do have its place. I will use them if I come home extremely late ... they'd be great for those lazy times and of course, when travelling.

For the "on-the-go" girl
These wipes are fantastic for easy fuss free makeup removal. They come in a packet of 25 and work just the same as travel baby wipes do. With a reasealable sticker type opening on top you just open up and remove the towelettes as you would a tissue fom a tissue box making it clean, quick and easy. No spilling products or losing lids and completely waste free. It has a very light, clean smell. Similar to hand soap but light enough to avoid irritaion for the sensitive types like myself. I very much like that it does not smell like a perfurme bottle as I find it extremely unnecessary to have makeup remover smelling like GUCCI anyway. I like to keep my skin clean, crisp, natural and moisturised which is exactly what these towelletes offer. They easily remove everything on the skin including makeup,glitter/shimmer, dirt..everything. One towlette does all for me including my face, neck and upper chest. As I normally use babywipes I am the type of person that would be interested in trying towellettes and I can say that I can definately tell the differnce between my baby wipes and neautrogena's makeup remover cleansing towellettes. They are fantastic. They are also very moisturising. My only issue with them is that they could be a little too moisturising as they tend to leave quite a greasy oil type residue which is a little unpleasant for me. Unfortunately, I did feel the need to recleanse using another product after using one of these. And considering I have quite dry skin, I can imagine that oily or combo skin type would not like the residue these leave. If the formula could be adjusted slightly (maybe if the towlettes were just not so wet) I would definately consider replacing my babywipes with these. Over all, they do exactly as they say and I am very happy to have been part of the trial team for these products.

When I received this product in the post, I was very happy. I'm very lazy about taking my makeup off and i often find that towelettes are too scratchy on my skin. This product however, changed my opinion!
The packaging is great, it doesn't leak and the top stays stuck down after use.
the smell is very subtle and is a nice clean scent rather than a girly perfume. this is great since you use it before bed.
The towelettes are easily removed from the package and are soft on the skin while easily removing all traces of makeup.
I found that, true to claim,it made short work of mascara as well.
I'll certainly be buying a new pack once this one runs out and for someone who has never stuck with a brand of makeup removal before, that's a big call!
