Aveeno Ultra-Calming Makeup Removing Wipes

Hello Dolls!


This is a review of a product I received from Klout a WHILE back. I've been using and testing the product out extensively.. Considering the entire package was gone. I wanted to make sure I could give you a really good review of them. As of anything else I get from Klout, I got it sent to me for free. I am not affiliated with Klout of Aveeno, nor am I being sponsored or paid to do this review. All opinions are my own, so lets just jump right into it!


Now, I was excited when I saw that I was able to try these. I have been looking for a good makeup removing wipe for a while that wont break the bank, or break my skin out. So needless to say, I was excited when I got these in the mail. These wipes are not exactly cheap I guess, I didn't realize that until I checked their price in the store. They retail for around $6.99 for 25 wipes. Now the price varies depending on where you live, but this is the price for them where I live. Yikes! I couldn't believe it!

These wipes are Noncomedogenic (wont clog your pores), "Oil-Free", ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested. Meaning it is safe to use around your eyes and safe to use on your skin. NOW, as you might have noticed oil-free is in quotation marks. Why? Well, I swear to you that these were/are the greasiest makeup wipes I have EVER used. I swear it felt like I was just smearing oil on my face, it was horrid and my face did not feel clean at all. Yes, it did get my makeup off but the greasy feeling was way too much for me. After I used these I had to immediately wash my face afterwards or I broke out. Kind of goes against the Noncomedogenic claims, but that is just my skin.

These wipes are targeted towards people with sensitive skin, which I tend to have. I have a little mix of ALL the bloody skin types. That is a fun thing to deal with! Anyways, I just really.. I just couldn't get into them. YES, I did use them up because I am not going to waste them, I just figured out to wash my face immediately after. I didn't feel like it removed the oil as they claimed to do because they just made my face MORE oily. I am just on the fence about these to be honest. They weren't that great at getting the makeup off, if I wanted to get my makeup TOTALLY off, I had to use two wipes.

I know some people love these and some people hate these, which is why I am on the fence. Personally for me though, these are a no-go. I can not recommend these at all. I have tried other Aveeno products before and they were all fantastic, but this one just falls flat for me. :( Which stinks because Aveeno is a lovely skin care company!


Have you tried this before? What was YOUR opinion of it?!
