Lovely wipes


I have used nutrogena face wipes at night for many years as make up removers before washing my face. They're fine but these ones are nicer. I wish they were a little bigger but they're alright the way they are. These are softer than the nutrogena wipes and don't feel as 'raspy'. They have been effective at makeup removal. I don't wear a lot of makeup but I do still need to remove the basics. These don't leave as much residue as the nutrogena ones do, which might be important if you didn't want to wash your face afterwards. These feel gentler and generally more pleasant to use and, as I love Paula's Choice and trust the products for my skin, I think I'll stick with these.

I discovered the most wonderful hack...


My young children wear tenacious mineral sunscreen on their faces. Even after a shower with a gentle wash, you can still see the sunscreen. I took a Paula's Choice wipe and gently went over their cheeks, foreheads, chins and noses. Guess what...all of the sunscreen was gone. We are taking this with us on any vacation this summer. They are magical and not abrasive or rough at all. They are so soft and effective!




Perfect cloths!


I've tried many methods of make-up removal, but cleansing cloths are still my favorite even though Paula advises against anything that pulls on the skin and causes early aging. Which is why these cloths are amazing! Just a little pricier than your favorite drugstore brand, but so gentle and require very little rubbing to remove ALL make-up - even on the eyes! LOVE THESE!

Finally Paula Cleansing Wipes


I had to try these! I love them! My face feels clean and soft, no fragrance, no sticky residue after either. I do not use them to remove eye makeup, just to clean my skin. I will be using these on a regular basis.

I will be purchasing regularly


Removed my makeup very well. Love that there's no fragrance or animal testing. Love that they're biodegradable. Left my face feeling soft. Wee!

A great (albeit expensive) shortcut


These are great! So easy on nights when I'm tempted to skip my skincare routine. Effective make up removal takes time and a lot of rubbing with these wipes to get rid of it all, even when the makeup I use isn't waterproof. I have never tried any other brand of cleansing wipes to compare these ones with (but I'm such a Paula groupie that I wouldn't be caught dead using anything but her products or others that she rates highly.) I have sensitive skin, and despite the rubbing, the wipes don't irritate at all. I agree with the reviewer who said that Paula doesn't recommend anything that is "pulling" on the skin, so using these just feels a bit wrong for that reason. My comparison point is other Paula cleansers: I have used the resist hydrating cleanser for years, and more recently, the cleansing oil - these products are both very effective for me, the oil especially so for makeup removal. The wipes work out to be dramatically more expensive that these other cleanser options, so I'll save them for nights when I'm feeling lazy and can't be bothered splashing water around. But I seem to be feeling lazier and lazier the more I use the wipes lol. Four stars from me, simply because 1. It feels wrong that I need to scrub so much to get rid of all the makeup, after listening intently to Paula's skincare principles for over 15 years now, and 2. they work out to be way more expensive per application than the other cleansers I use.




Makes your face feel great!


This wipes make your face feel great! My only complaint is I wish they were thicker and a bit bigger

Does not remove makeup as advertised


I would describe this cloth more as a freshening wipe, not a true makeup remover. I have been using wipes for years to remove my makeup and have probably tried close to every cloth on the market. This unfortunately does not live up to the description of quickly removing makeup—including long-wear & waterproof. I found that it does not even remove my easily removable mascara. I had to sprinkle Paulas makeup remover on the cloth. On the positive side, these are the most gentle cloths I have ever used and they do not irritate my sensitive skin. I have been using Paula's products for 15+ years and my skin loves the Calm line. I would not recommend for makeup removal.

Contains dimethicone!


the covering and trapping property of dimethicone means that it's not just trapping moisture, but bacteria, skin oils, sebum, and other impurities. That a NO for those prone to acne or oily skin. Why not use a natural product like Shea butter?
