No To Cucumbers

I know a lot of people may disagree with this review, but I'm voting No on Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towelettes.
They retail for about $6-7 at places like Target, Ulta, etc. for 30 towelettes. I got 2 packs buy one, get one 50% off at Ulta.

  • Fresh cucumber scent (well, I guess that's a con if you don't like the smell of cucumber)
  • Packaging locks in moisture.  It has a taped over seal and then the plastic snap.  (Try storing it plastic side down to keep moisture towards the top towelette)
  • Convenient for travel
  • 98.7% natural, biodegradable product
  • Burns my eyes when I wipe over them.  I've never had a facial wipe irritate my eyes, but for some reason, this one drives me crazy.  I even tried opening a different pack. Nothing different.
  • Not so great at removing mascara.  I had to use additional products to remove eye make-up (and no, it wasn't water-proof).  I feel like there are many other wipes on the market that perform both for me.
  • If you are wearing water-proof make-up, forget it.
Overall, this product doesn't convince me to switch from my ELF make-up remover wipes.  They remove a lot more, cost 50% less (more if you buy them during a sale) and they do not irritate my skin or eyes at all.


  1. This sounds terrible! You should try the Yes To Carrots Lip Butters, I love them!!

  2. Yikes!! Luckily I've never had the problem where a MU remover/wipes burned my eyes. ITA though, ELF's wipes are also!

    Also, thanks so much for continuing to follow/support my blog. :) I also appreciate you entering my giveaway. Best of luck!

  3. Great review. I can't believe they burn your eyes. =\ I don't think I"ll try these out.. Lol.
