Most Helpful Positive Review Soft skin ain't no sin
I tried the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Makeup Removing Towelettes and OH MAN was I blown away! I consider myself someone with mature skin being in my late 40's. I have very sensitive and fair skin and have lots of freckles. I have few wrinkles due to my oily complexion and often have breakouts of blackheads and an occasional whitehead near my nose. I wear concealer, powder, blush, eyeliner and mascara.
I used the micellar wipes according to the package instructions holding the wipe on my closed eye for about 20 seconds. I gently wiped my eyes in a downward motion following the natural curve of my lashes. I made several swipes before opening my eyes and then opened my eye to remove residual mascara from underneath my eye. I repeated that same procedure on the other eye and had only used half of one side of the towelette. I then started on my forehead and used small wiping motions all the way down my face according to package directions. I was able to remove all of my makeup with one towelette and couldn't believe how incredibly smooth and soft my skin felt. I used a second wipe to ensure that all my makeup was removed and noticed that there was no makeup to be seen on the second wipe. I was impressed that one wipe was able to remove my makeup and really liked the softness of my skin.
I have used these wipes for the past 6 days and feel that they haven't caused my sensitive skin to breakout any more than usual and I have had no skin irritation whatsoever. I think these wipes have exceptional cleansing power and are certainly going to be useful when on the go.
I would certainly recommend these wipes to anyone who needs a gentle face cleanser that doesn't cause irritation or oiliness.
Most Helpful Critical Review Eh
I wear waterproof mascara and sometimes eyeliner, so I definitely need something that will remove waterproof makeup. I had been using the same product but in the 13.5 oz bottle version, so I decided to try the towelettes hoping they would simplify that process (i.e. not having to use a cotton ball/pad to apply/use it). Both do the job but these towelettes seem to be very dry, making them a little more difficult to use because I feel like I have to rub my eyelid raw to remove the makeup. NOTE: I didn't notice until after I got home and opened the package to use for the first time that there was a small tear in the packaging, so there's a chance that might've caused them to dry out slightly; maybe they're aren't normally as dry as what I'm experiencing. I'm willing to give them another chance, but most likely I'll be switching back to the bottle and cotton ball/pad application process.

I use this product to remove my make up and any dirt/oil from my face prior to washing it. I love this product because the make up glides off, even mascara. I don't have to rub my eyes or risk breaking off my eyelashes to get my mascara off. This product is very gentle.
Leaves skin smooth, not sticky!
mmariexx from SATX
I got these as a gift and I love them. I tried other wipes and they leave a residue stickiness on my skin, these leave my face feeling fresh and clean.
Great remover for stubborn eyemakeup
Radiance from Buffalo, NY
I love anything with micellar water so of course had to snag makeup wipes that takes off everything! Even stubborn eyelash glue!
Do not buy!
hockeygal87 from WA
I purchased these after reading a lot of good reviews... I should have taken time to read the negative reviews as well. These are not safe to use on eyes. After I used them to try and remove eye makeup, my eyes burned for the rest of the day. No amount of eye drops would help! I had to shower and wash my face twice, and my eyes were still sore the next day. Also, these wipes made my face break out in an itchy rash. On top of that, they are terrible at actually removing any makeup whatsoever. Save your eyes and skin and pick a different brand.

I have been using these wipes since middle school and I have always loved them! They don't have a strong smell and have always worked well with my skin!
Dry and Sensitive skin people I do not recommend
Angie from South Sioux City
I just started having more fun with makeup recently and I got these to get it all off. It took 3 to 4 wipes to get it all off and left my skin severely dry and I'm having horrible breakouts and more redness then typically would. Overall I would not recommend this product with dry sensitive skin. The bottle of the cleanser however worked way better and did not cause this kind of reaction to my skin.
Seli from Thousand Oaks, CA
This is super dry. The make-up removal towelettes don't even work.
love love love
Ambi from Missouri
This wipe takes off my stubborn eyeliner with ease!! I use it for my whole face and then use moisturizer and it's great!!
Not for me
Sky from NY
I have very sensitive skin and I always have a problem with finding makeup wipes that don't burn my skin
Not the best on waterproof mascara
Sass from Indianapolis
Doesn't work as well as other brands I've used. Kind of have to scrub my eyes.
They are too dry
Jil from Las Vegas, NV
The wipes are not wet enough to gently remove my makeup. I feel like I have to rub a good amount in order to get any use out of the wipe OR I have to add water to make it work. I love their normal liquid product, but these wipes just aren't cutting it and add more inconvenience to my routine.
Miranda from California
Was having a hard time finding something that would actually remove my waterproof mascara. Works perfectly!!
Almost too mild
Val from Oakland, CA
These are so mild compared to other brands that I don't actually feel like my face is being cleaned, plus it's hard to get my waterproof eye makeup off with these. I have fairly sensitive skin so I thought this would be a good fit, but it doesn't have strong enough ingredients to do the job for me.
My fav makeup remover wipes.
Rainmakerfarm from PA
Removes waterproof eye makeup, and is easy on the skin!
Emma from Fresno, CA
These wipes are great for removing allll makeup, including tough mascara. I have dry sensitive skin and these don't burn whatsoever, or leave a greasy feeling. I personally like these over the original miceller wipes (pink package).
MaIz from El Paso, TX
I love these, works with my sensitive skin and takes off all my all my makeup even waterproof makeup without having to rub so hard like other wipes I have tried. I love these, I tried another brand and i ended up taking them back and went back to these
Did not Like these at all
Kristen from Seattle
I'm not happy about how these wipes work. First, I needed 2-3 wipes to remove my full face. Mascara gets left behind. Foundation is also left behind in the crannies of my face. Packaging isn't good because no matter how tightly I sealed it, at least 5 of the wipes were almost dried out.
I have sensitive skin, but it still burns my face
DuckyTheRaven from Everett WA
I wish most sensitive skin products were made for sensitive skin. I can use it all kver my face but as soon its in my eye zone from my eyes to my temples I look sunburned from the wipes and it won't stop burning until its dry and wiped off. It gets the rest of my makeup off in a breeze! Definitely would recommend for non sensitive skin types.
I would buy again.
Ayanna from Missouri
The only reason for four stars is because it's a little expensive for not very many wipes but they are really really good and great for sensitive skin. They also remove my mascara which I can't do with any others.
not for me
Kris K from Toledo. OH
I specifically bought these to take off waterproof mascara but they didn't do that
Bernice from Indio CA
I like it but it doesn't take most of my makeup off but I give it a 7
Love this product.... so convenient!
Ulta Fan from Christiansburg va
No way! Ouch! Stay away.
Golfergirl from Rochester
Don't use if you have sensitive skin! These gave me a terrible rash-like dermatitis, especially all around the eye area. Made skin very dry, almost raw-like, nonstop itchy, bumpy, and red! Bought because of reviews I read, but have tried a few different cloths and none gave me any kind of reaction like these.
Possibly worst dermatitis I've had
Keliz from New Jersey
This product gave me quite possibly the worst case of contact dermatitis I have ever had. Within 8 hours of using this, my face was a burning, itching, red mess with tiny angry raised bumps EVERYWHERE. 3 days later, my skin is like sandpaper and sloughing off!
Yes yes yes
DaneK from NJ
Love these! Can't use many makeup removers because they make my eyes burn and become allergic. I am super sensitive and these work perfectly. Very light fragrance and get the job done. Been a life saver!
