Most Helpful Positive Review Pleasantly surprised!
I was looking forward to trying these facial towelettes so when they arrived I used them right away! I had just returned from the gym and need to freshen up. I was pleasantly surprised to Find they felt like they lathered but there wasn't suds all over my face. My skin felt clean and there was no mess! However, my skin did burn a little bit a minute or so after I used them. Nothing serious and other than the burning sensation I did not break out or turn bright red. The ultimate test came when I had a full face of makeup on and these took everything off! I did follow up with my usual cleanser to make sure though. My mascara always leaves residue behind and the towelettes took it off clean! 4 stars because of the slight skin irritation.
Most Helpful Critical Review Great for the Environment, Not as great for my skin
These wipes are a decent size and very moist. So moist you can visibly see the product (bubbles) on the wipe and it leaves a slight residue on your face and fingers. The main reason I gave this three stars is because it performs well when cleaning makeup off the face and and is biodegradable which is essential for products of this nature. While the packaging states it is scent free it still has a slight scent that smells like cooking oil. After using the wipes over a few weeks, I noticed they make my face feel somewhat sticky. As a result, I clean the makeup off my face with the Almay wipe then use my everyday face wash to remove the residue of the wipe, leaving my skin feeling fresh. I am also not a fan of how they make my eyes water a little after using them. Overall, I am not a huge fan of these wipes and wouldn't recommend these to friends and family.

Margo from Chicago
I did not like these wipes. They are very textured, which I found too rough on my skin. They also have a very weird smell, like a bad perfume or something. I definitely will NOT repurchase these.
Work great for me
Barb from Seattle
These remove my eye makeup very well—I even use them on my waterline with no stinging or burning. They are very moist which I appreciate and are better than other brands I have tried.
I wouldn't buy them again
Moonlight from Los Angeles
I think these are not the worst makeup wipes I've tried but they do seem to have a bit of a formulation in the wipes that I don't think they'd suit sensitive skin . I didn't get any rash but I can see them bothering someone with easily irritated skin .
Burn my face
Chopi from NY
This product burned my entire face, was red, I took Benadryl. If you have sensitive skin don't buy this product, they should remove it form the market .
Burned my eyes and skin
Hannah from Eugene, OR
Very wet but also dry out quickly , made my skin feel dry afterward. I also read the label and see that there's salt in them? I don't know if that's normal for makeup wipes but maybe that's what burns so bad? Idk
These burn more than the waterproof'
Samantha from CA
I've tried these and the purple ones and honestly they burn pretty darn badly but the waterproof ones are not nearly as bad! I'd go for those :)
If you have sensitive skin SKIP THIS PRODUCT
Mom of 3 from CA
I thought I was going crazy but no, this product made my skin burn, not just my eyes, but my entire face! I removed make up, skin was burning, so I got in the shower to rinse and when I was done I noticed my entire face was red, like sunburn red. My eyes started to get irritated as well. I won't ever use these towels.
Does the job well.
AndyO from Boston
I found I had a really easy time using these wipes and I didn't have to be so rough with my face to get all the makeup off. It's a little pricy but then again I had to use less wipes so I think it equaled itself out.
Won't buy again
Meli from New Bern, N.C.
I thought I was the only one who experienced a burning sensation on my eyes and worried that I might be allergic to anything these wipes may contain. But as I looked through other people's reviews, I realized I am not the only one. Please don't use this product on your skin. I had severe irritation on my eyes and cheek when I used it.
I love it!!
Ulyssesmama from Mobile Alabama
When I first used it, I was worried that it may irritate my eyes because it is so wet. (I have used other wipes that have caused irritation before) But I wiped off my mascara with no problems or irritation! I was happily surprised. Also, this was a free gift which was a bonus happiness but I will be ordering this in the future.

It hardly got off any makeup and really burned my cheeks! It took awhile for for my cheeks to heal cuz I have extra sensitive skin.
Madi from Enlish
This product did remove my makeup easily and they are biodegradable, which is a plus, but they burn my skin and my eyes when I use them. Even if I don't use them close to my eyes, my eyes still seem to water and get irritated. It might just be me. I won't buy these again.
Carly from Orlando
Love the idea but these burn my skin and eyes! I have the same problem with Neutregena wipes and products so there must be a common ingredient I'm allergic to. They even smell like the Neutregena wipes so if you have an issue with those DO NOT buy these!
Burn my eyes
Dana from 89801
Not the best makeup wipes... they don't smell good and they burned my eyes and face. Will not be buying again
Me from New York
I don't even have sensitive skin and these gave my face a terrible burning sensation that lasted for at least an hour. My eyes also got swollen and puffy. Don't trust the positive reviews. I checked the ingredients and saw that they put SALT in the wipes. I'm horrified.
Me from New York
I don't have sensitive skin but these wipes burn and sting my whole face. This has never happened to me before so I know it's the wipe. My eyes have also swollen a little. Don't buy these.
Magatron128 from Chicago IL
I have sensitive skin, which these wipes claim they are gentle enough for. Yeah no. I used these once & had to immediately splash cold water on my face because of the burning sensation they caused. It was so intense it made me tear up. I have since demoted these to the make up stand where I use them to clean off a brush with too much product on it & wipe the foundation off my lips during my makeup routine. The craziest part? These wipes literally make my lips go numb. What is in these? Jet fuel? Bug spray? Turpentine? Hard pass.
Liza from India
I have tried many makeup wipes over the years and these are by far the best. One wipe removed a whole face of full glam with no issue and it leaves my skin feeling so clean and fresh.
💁🏻♀️ from Michigan
These makeup wipes are great!!!! The only gripe I have with them is how much it BURNS my eye area. I have used several brands of makeup wipes and I've never felt worse pain than this. I also am not a fan of how my face feels after I use it, almost like a soapy feel. But it removes makeup so well it's almost worth the burn? My skin is very sensitive and very dry and I usually use the simple wipes but if you can handle the burn for a minute or two then I say get them
Very good but...
Jaz from Phoenix
These makeup wipes are excellent and remove a lot of makeup in just a small swipe but , my eye area burns a LOT when I use them
My new favorite makeup remover
Ehhsamanta from Great neck, new York
I've been using the Almay Micellar Biodegradable Towelettes for around 4 weeks and they are now my favorite makeup removing wipes. Makes my skin feel fresh and clean without leaving it dry and flakey. Removes makeup instantly included longwear makeup and can easily take off my entire face with one wipe. I've already bought another pack since and highly recommend it. Love it
Gentle on skin and works great
alwaysblabbing from Louisiana
I'll admit I am not the best about taking off makeup every night so I love to keep makeup wipes on hand. These are great they are super gentle and work quickly. I can remove a full face of makeup with one wipe but I usually run another on my face to be sure. There is a very light scent but it is hardly noticeable unless you are looking.. or sniffing. I like the easy close snap top because it keeps the wipes fresh. I would purchase these again and recommend to friends and family
Amazingly Clean Skin
Eac1987 from Stevens, PA
I always am looking for easier effective ways to remove my makeup that are gentle enough that don't dry out my skin! This product is truly amazing and very effective.
MommyPOV from Texas
These are great! Especially for being biodegradable! I'm not gonna lie. When I read that I was weary, As most biodegradable ones i have previously tried are a little stiff or scratchy! These are neither! So i feel a little bit better about using a disposable product! And they work! What I use these for are those little stubborn extras that seem to stay behind, or as a 1st step when I have a full beat Face. These removed the excess as well as my 1st step and removing enough! I highly recommend these! They are wet enough without being sopping wet! And far from dry!
Cleans on one swipe
Alma from Sacramento
I wear make up every day and use different liquid make up removers usually but let me tell you theses wipes make it so much easier. They are easy to grab out of the package and a good size to carry in your purse. The consistency is perfect not too wet or dry (that's what she said) lol. And they work great! Even on the eyeliners. So I was definitely sold told my whole pasi and changed up my routine. Yes you should try it duh?! because they are also biodegradable and we need to be more conscious about the products we use.
