First Impressions: Neutrogena Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes – Pink Grapefruit

Hey, beauties! I hope your weekend was wonderful! Mine was absolutely amazing and crazy busy. I spent my weekend at a dance convention/competition which (as usual) was inspiring, exhausting, crazy, and super fun! I thought I was going to be able to upload a post while I was there, but unfortunately the wifi at the hotel we were staying at cost $10 per day to use! So ridiculous!! Anywho, I picked up some makeup wipes on Thursday because I needed to remove my makeup and I didn’t have access to a sink to wash my face. I hopped into good-ol’ Walgreens and picked these up!


I went and picked out the Neutrogena Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes – Pink Grapefruit. I’ve talked in the past about how much I dislike makeup wipes and how all the ones I have tried break me out/feel oily/burn my skin. I had high hopes for these since I love facial scrub and body wash from this Pink Grapefruit line.

As soon as I started gently sweeping the towelette on my face, my face started intensely burning. Worse than any other makeup wipes I have tried. When I tried removing my eye makeup with the wipe, my eyes got red and my face felt like it was on fire! I had to use water out of a water bottle and splash it all over my face to cool it down. Many reviews say this happened to them, but other people love these wipes. So if you have are sensitive to makeup wipes like me, have combination skin, or sensitive skin in general, I do NOT recommend these wipes! This was some of the worst pain I have gotten from any beauty/skin care product before!

The one positive about these wipes is they did not leave any sticky or overly-oily residue on the skin. Although they definitely left behind a burning sensation!

I have honestly never been so disappointed in a purchase before. I hope one day I can find makeup wipes that work for me!

Have a fantastic week, loves! Summer is almost here! xoxo 🙂
