You’ve probably used a makeup removing towelette before and you may love them or you may be like me and see no real use for them.
I’ve never been one to spend money on makeup removing towelettes when a bottle of CVS brand makeup remover is less expensive. Plus, it just seems wasteful to use a wipe and throw it away after just one use.
I received Neutrogena Naturals Makeup Removing Towelettes in a recent Influenster campaign and was excited to try them because 1- they’re free, and 2- I love trying new things! Influenster asked it’s users to pledge to clean their face with just the towelettes for 3 days, calling it the Wipe for Water challenge.
We use, on average, five gallons of water every time we wash our face. That can add up quick, so I was on board right away to use these wipes in an attempt to conserve water.
Day one using my Neutrogena Naturals towelettes was fine. The formula irritated my eyes and stung just a bit. I was trying to make sure I removed every bit of eyeliner and mascara. I don’t like to be uncomfortable when removing my makeup, but I was prepared to give the wipes a second try.
Unfortunately, Day two of using the towelettes irritated my eyes again. I’m really hoping that this was just my skin’s reaction and no one else had this problem!
The wipes do a great job of removing eye-makeup, something a lot of wipes have trouble with. It also left my skin feeling really refreshed and clean, just not my eyelids.
My favorite part about these towelettes is the actual wipe. It is made of natural fibers that are super soft and glide on your skin with ease.
Because of the irritation the wipes left around my eyes, I did not stick to the 3 day challenge of using just the Neutrogena Naturals Towelettes.
Instead, I’ve made a conscious effort to use less water when I wash my face, brush my teeth and clean my coffee mugs. I think this is something we could all do. If we all cut down on the water we use each day, we could make a huge impact in conserving water!
If you give these a try, let me know what you think!
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
