Review: Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelettes

What is it?
"Yes To Cucumbers Natural Glow Facial Towelettes gently remove dirt, sweat and makeup without the need to rinse! It's an exfoliant, detoxifyer and rejuvenater all wrapped up in one on-the-go biodegradable wipe, keeping you free and fresh-faced." - Yes to Carrots website

Price and where to buy: $5.99, and Walgreens

My thoughts: Kudos on the easy to open and close flap that kept my towelettes moist throughout the one and a half months that I used this. I waited until I finished the last towelette before I did this review - I wanted to see if the last one will stay moist - and it did! It is a cloth-like towel that is used to gently cleanse, remove make up, and keep the skin nourished. I find it to be very easy to use, just popped the lid open, grabbed a towelette, closed lid, wiped face, and I'm good. I do not notice any scent to it. It removes my face makeup very well. It also does a good job removing any eyeshadow, but it does not remove mascara or eyeliner (I don't think it was designed for this anyway). It did not irritate my eyes when I used it to remove my eyeshadow. It works well with my dry skin - no dry patches after using these. However, I do feel a very slight burning sensation on the face afterwards. I'm not exactly sure what that is, it lasts for about 30 seconds or so. These towelettes are easy to use, great for travelers, and for people on the go - don't even have to wash or rinse my face (I always wash it before I sleep though).

  1. I haven't tried these, but I want to! :)

    I love the YTC Lip Butters.

  2. i definitely need to try these out! i love the "yes to..." brand :) x

  3. The only ones I've tried are Olay and Josie Maran and I liked them both. They were a bit expensive though, but these are a steal at $5.99. I'm not sure Canada carries this brand though...

  4. I've been using them for two weeks and I feel the burning in my skin too, though mine seems to last longer than 30 seconds. They remove makeup just fine, but I'm worried if my oily/dry skin is sensitive to some ingredient and is causing the redness and burning.
