Most Helpful Positive Review It burns & numbs my face but the results were like wow!
After making a complete mess of my face by over using chemical peels and learning about ph levels and the acid mantle, my research lead me to the Cerave line of which it is rumored the ph levels are low and their self claim of restoring the skin barrier is exactly what I'm looking for in a product. So imagine my surprise that upon first use, this product Burned. It then began to numb my face. With my face skin showing signs of an imbalanced barrier ( reddness, acne, cyst, fine lines, tightness and dryness) I asked my son to try one. He is 22 yrs old and doesn't use cosmetics and had gorgeous skin. In fact, he says he only uses water to wash his face and he hadn't cleaned his face at all in the last 24 hrs till i asked him to try this. He said it didnt burn except for around his eyes where the skin is naturally thinner. So since my whole face burned I concluded my skin is more sensitive because of my isssues which is why I purchase this. I also purchased because while I absolutely swear by Shesheido wipes which have a ph level of 5.5 and can do NO wrong, its $20 and I wanted a cheaper alternative. The burning stopped after a while ( product did not burn my eyes nor did I use the peel on them) and gradually began to numb my face just like "Yes to cucumbers soothing paper mask". I wonder what ingredient they put in it to cause that.
The finish however was clean, hydrated and for a product that uses cheap mineral oil at the top of ingrediants!, i had no shine but rather a natural to demi matte finish! I'm in love! I highly recommend if you do not have sensitive skin and I can see that when my entire face ( and not just my eyes) restores its acid mantle I'll be able to use this minus the burn.
Most Helpful Critical Review Burning/tingling
Used these for the first time today and they made my face and eyes burn/tingle? I googled it and that seems to be a common review which seems unusual for cerave products since they are typically very gentle. I've never experienced this sensation from any other makeup wipes I've ever used, and I wouldn't consider my skin sensitive. My skin isn't red or irritated so I'll stick with them but I definitely would not recommend if you have super sensitive skin!

Burned and made my entire face red and irritated. Did a subpar job at removing the makeup as well

A harder case for the product would make it more appealing
Will be purchasing this product again!

These wipes are my favorite makeup removing/cleansing wipes. I usually wash my face before using these and the wipes get any left over makeup. I sometimes use them just to cleanse my face when I'm not wearing makeup.
Ariane from Omaha
These are my new forever favorites! It only takes two wipes to remove all makeup and no residue or irritation. Even my eye area is completely non irritated. This brand is great and this product is no exception.
I'm convinced these gave me eczema
Liz from Michigan
I'm 27 y/o & I've never left a review on anything in my life. But these are so, so bad. The hydrating cleanser as well. All of a sudden my skin started burning when I used these products & now I have huge dry patches on my face & neck.... I've never had a dry patch on my body a day in my life. I am currently seeing a derm & esthetician to correct my skin barrier being compromised & hopefully getting the dry patches to go away. It's been a week and a half since I removed all cerave products from my regimen. My skin is nowhere near as dried out as it was, but correcting these dry flakey patches is going to take some time.
I believe cerave is made for people with very normal skin.
For reference, I'm typically oily... have been my whole life... now I'm dry & itchy because of these products!!!
Jesa from Ohio
They burn your entire face, and made my skin feel horrible. I would not recommend buying these.
Burned and broke me out all over my face!!
Monica from Florida
Used these for the first time the other night and it really burned my skin and was tough to get the makeup off. Thought I could deal with it to not waste the entire pack until I woke up with my face COVERED in little white heads. This completely ruined my make-up application for an event this week. I'm so upset!
Burns and tingles
Cole M from Naperville
My face truly felt like someone threw acid on it. Also the first 10 wipes out of the 25 pack wipes were completely dry and not even usable. If you're ever debating buying these please save your money and buy a different brand. I never take the time out of my day to write these but my face has never burned so bad.
Emily from Oklahoma
Honestly why are we still using makeup wipes to clean skin. They are all bad for your skin, but these were terrible. Burn, and don't take the make up off! Better to use cleansing balm and a gentle face wash. I just like to keep make up wipes in my purse (just in case) but I'll just stick to burts bees brand or something.
Not worth the pain
BroomRdr from SC
Had NOT read reviews prior to purchase. Thought I was losing my mind when the burning & numbness began. After all, this is Cera Ve, & I adore all of their gentle, "ph balanced", highly recommended products!! Have for years ~ but these!?! They absolutely remove makeup, but the trade off of numb lips & burning, red irritated orbital skin just isn't worth it.
Aah! It burns!!
Ceci from Denver Colorado
After a minute, my entire face burns after using these. No swelling or redness though, thank goodness. Must be mixed with holy water. LOL
I will continue to purchase
Mia from Massachusetts
My favorite makeup wipes

I do not have issues with breakouts, nor do i have sensitive skin. but holy cow! my lips went numb after wiping off my lipstick with these and my eyes were BURNING!!! the next day (today) my skin is broken out so bad my forehead and cheeks are COVERED in little white heads!!!:( I hate giving such a bad review but these were horrible! cerave needs to rethink this product!!
Trust the Reviews... Burns
Sarah from Sc
I have sensitive skin that these were supposed to be for. They begin to burn my skin immediately and it's not from wiping too hard. Gives my skin an uncomfortable numbness and turns super red. I highly recommend Cetaphils makeup wipes that come in a blue packet, they give me zero issues
Mc from Such
This wipes burned my eyes I wouldn't recommend at all
Visible burns, dry skin, break out.
Chelsea from Greenville, Sc
Please be cautious when using! As soon as I put the wipe on my skin it started burning. I immediately washed my face but the damage was already done apparently. I woke up the next morning with visible red burns under my eyes, dry skin, and break outs.
KC from Portland
I love the brand but don't like this product. It does absolutely nothing for me and I end up dowsing the whole wipe in micellar water. If Cera Ve wasn't buy one get one half off when I purchased this I would not have bought the wipes. Not ever buying these again.
Stinging and Burning
MichG from Connecticut
These are the worst makeup wipes ever! They burn and sting my eyes and face. They also feel so rough and abrasive!
Burning! from Arkansas
Like most other reviews I have to agree that yes they take the makeup off but it burns like crazy. Like a facial peel.
bxby from yo mama
I will admit , it's good at getting off makeup but It burns, not stings, burns my skin. Reformulate and I'll give another try!
Aryn from Seabrook, TX
I love Cerave so I tried these. They burn my skin so bad, can't use them!
Ceraves worst product
Isabell from USA
This is so bad it didn't work for my skin at all, just burned it. Never again
Rough and burns on skin
Crystal from New York
I bought the whole line to try to be more gentle with my skin and fix problem areas so I thought the makeup removing wipes would be a good addition. All CeraVe products that I've tried before have been great but the wipes are extremely rough on my skin and after I used them my skin immediately burned so I used the hydrating cleanser to wash it off and the PM moisturizer and it felt better
Meh probably won't buy again
Hannah from Temecula
I didn't really like it at all

Does a horrible job at removing make up, broke me out 100x worse, and burns like no other.
