Product Rant: Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towlettes

I usually don't like to rant about products. Like most makeup products, what works for some may not work for others. This is the case with the Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towlettes. From the reviews of these makeup wipes, it's either love or hate. It works great for some people but I'm in the "hate" group. I know hate is a strong word but this product did absolutely nothing for me.


These wipes come with 30 towlettes. The packaging is like a regular makeup wipes packaging in the plastic-y container but this packaging has the flip top closure. I like that a lot better than the sticker closure many others have because the sticker gets weaker as you open and close it over time. I think that's the only plus I can think of (eek).


The sticker on the inside is really cute. But it's evil, don't fall for it's tricks!

First of all, the smell is supposed to be like cucumbers. It's ok but gets clawing. Of course scent is a very personal thing, but I'm not usually sensitive to them so if it bothered me, then it will probably bother others.

Because of the winter, my cheeks have apparently become a little sensitive. I never even noticed until I wiped these horrible monsters on my face and the sensitive area burned. Owie =[

The main reason I didn't like (and used "hate") these towlettes is because when I say they didn't do anything for me, I mean it. They did NOTHING. My skincare routine consists of makeup wipe to remove all makeup, then cleanse, tone, moisturize. These wipes removed almost no makeup and if you try hard to remove your makeup, you have to rub hard and irritate your skin. When I tried to remove my mascara, nothing came off (NADA!).

In an attempt to use these up and not waste my money, I've been using them when I have been doing swatches for the blog. Sucking up the smell issue, they barely take off the swatches unless I rub kinda hard. Then my hand is red and I hate them more.

Like I said, different things work for different people. Some people LOVE these and some don't. This is just my opinion, though so if it does work for you...sorry I called them evil =]

Do you use the Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towlettes? How do they work for you?

That's so weird that some people love them, but they didn't do anything for you :/ I'll err on the side of caution and not try them. I haven't tried anything from the cucumber line, but I have used some of the carrot products and didn't love them.
