Pond's Wet Cleansing Towelettes: Evening Soothe With Chamomile and White Tea

I have always been intrigued with Pond's line of skincare items. They have an endless cult following and their products have been around for years. While shopping for some makeup removing wipes, I spotted the Pond's Wet Cleansing Towelettes: Evening Soothe With Chamomile and White Tea ($6.79) at Rite Aid, and I thought it was the perfect opportunity to finally have a taste of Pond's.


I have tried my fair share of makeup removing towelettes, and although I have found some great ones that I would repurchase, I can't help but want to change it up and try different kinds as well. When it comes to makeup removing towelettes, I don't ask for much. I mainly look for ones that are safe for sensitive skin, won't leave an uncomfortable film behind, and of course-ones that get the job done!

"Pond's Evening Soothe Towelettes gently clean away all traces of dirt and make-up, while calming the skin and senses. These soft, textured cloths wipe away the day while releasing the relaxing fragrance of Chamomile and White Tea." -Pond's (product info/description on packaging)

Thoughts
The Chamomile and White Tea fragrance truly is soothing-well, at least to me. There is nothing better than coming home after a long day of school, and while removing your makeup, you are welcomed by a soothing scent that gradually helps you feel more relaxed. For people who have sensitive noses and prefer unscented makeup towelettes, I would steer clear of these towelettes. But honestly, I don't think the scent is overbearing at all. It does not linger on the skin after use, and it quickly dissipates. 

You get 30 towelettes for around $6-7. I think that is a great bargain, and these should easily last about a month or so-assuming that 1 towelette is used per day. The towelettes are nicely moist-but definitely not over-saturated like most wipes can be. I love that these towelettes have a textured pattern on them. I think the texture works to effectively grab and wipe away every trace of makeup. When it comes to size, although not small by any means, I do wish that these towelettes were a bit larger. That way, one could have more area to use. 

Results
I think these towelettes do a great job at removing every layer of makeup on my face. I was most surprised about the fact that these wipes actually work well enough to remove my mascara! Usually, the wipes I have tried in the past, remove my mascara, but I would always find mascara traces when I cleansed my face. That does not happen with these wipes. I also love that these do not sting my eyes, which is a huge plus. I have super sensitive, acne-prone skin and I have not experienced any negative reactions, or skin irritations while using these towelettes. Lastly, my face is not left with a greasy film, after I use these towelettes. Score!

Overall, these cleansing towelettes from Pond's are a WINNER, and I am definitely going to repurchase these once I run out. LOVE!
