Right on the Nail ~ Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Makeup Remover Cleansing Towlettes Review

*provided for review from Influenster*

Yes, you're on the right blog! I basically only do nail product reviews, but since I use so many different makeup/face cleansing towels, I thought I would go ahead and review this here. If you're not into makeup or face wipes, I'm sorry. No worries, I'll be back tomorrow with your regularly scheduled programming.

I'm sure all of you either know about or have tried the Neutrogena makeup wipes (yup, those ones in the blue packaging). I've pretty much only used those and perhaps the Pond's wipes. The new Naturals wipes are free of sulfates, parabens, petrolatum, dyes or pthalates which is great. I also found them to be adequately sized to wipe my face which is sometimes (but rarely) an issue. One thing I thought was awesome was that Neutrogena is giving 10% of proceeds to the Nature Conservancy for water conservation. This is what they say:

Neutrogena will contribute 10% of the retail purchase price on Neutrogena® Naturals Purifying Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes sold in the United States from April 1-June 30, 2015 to The Nature Conservancy, with a combined maximum contribution of $50,000 on the retail sales and pledges. - See more at: http://www.neutrogena.com/product/neutrogena-+naturals+purifying+makeup+remover+cleansing+towelettes.do#sthash.it5QtI79.dpuf

Very Earth Day friendly-ish. You know, the whole throwing away a wipe every day isn't great either. ANYWAY!

Now the downside: I found them to be a bit too dry. Maybe it's because I've been using really wet ones (the Ole Henriksen vitamin C ones) so these seem comparably dry. These have the sticky top which works ok, but I like the snap top and sticky top ones to make sure I'm not losing any of the good stuff. How is it at removing makeup? Eh. I mean, it gets most of it, but I definitely still use an eye makeup remover (I use the Neutrogena one which is so much cheaper than the Lancome Bi facil remover). Maybe the makeup removal would be better if they were wetter. They currently only come in a 25 or 7 pack (I personally like to have 30 because I tend to use 1 per day). Either way, I'm not convinced I'd try these again over the other awesome ones out there. Well, maybe I'd buy it once for the contribution to the Nature Conservancy.

You can find these at your local drugstore, Walmart, Target, or Ulta.
