Drugstore Discoveries: Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleansing Wipes Review

July 14, 2009
Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleansing Wipes ($5.99 for 25)
These convenient, pre-moistened oil-free wipes instantly dissolve all traces of dirt, oil and makeup deep down to the pores. They even remove waterproof mascara. In one easy step, your skin is left perfectly clean and refreshed with no oily residue, so there’s no need to rinse.

Say hello to yet another wonderful product from Clean & Clear that’s wallet friendly, and like the eye makeup remover I raved about HERE, comparable to a higher end product (in this case MAC’s makeup wipes). The Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleansing Wipes have become a staple for me, in large part because after a late night at work or out with friends (or just watching Eureka on my laptop) I’m often too lazy to wash my face. These have saved me on many an occasion!



Lazy butt that I am I always having these sitting by my bedside table within easy reach should I already be lying down in bed — I can just feel around blindly for these without having to get up! The packaging is utilitarian and basic, no frills here. You get a plastic packet with a lift up sticker that seals in moisture, nothing at all fancy about it.

And what makes these makeup removing wipes so great? Well first of all the wipes are large enough to use on the entire face: one wipe is sufficient to remove every last bit of makeup, although I do like to use a separate remover for my more stubborn mascaras. What’s also simply fabulous is the texture of these wipes. They have this weave to them that makes them almost like a light fabric and the texture really snags every last bit of foundation/eye makeup/other mess you may have gunked on your face leaving your complexion feeling cleansed and refreshed.

These are contact-wearer friendly and definitely something I’d suggest checking out should you happen to be at a drugstore in the near future (I believe that I saw these on sale at Duane Reade sometime last week). Between these Makeup Dissolving Wipes and the Soothing Eye Makeup Remover, Clean & Clear has really been impressing me. Plus Nicole told me that their foaming face wash (the one that’s purple and looks like the eye makeup remover) is pretty great too – it’s next on my list of things to check out!
