Budget Beauty That Rocks: Yes To Cucumbers Soothing Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes

Yes To Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes

You know how to tell when something is really, really good?  When you get the product for free, run out of said product, then re-purchase. That’s exactly the case here. I’ve tried a bunch of makeup remover wipes. I used MAC Wipes (30 sheets/$15) for years, mainly because they were the only ones that I knew about. But they worked, and that’s what mattered. Then I found Alcone Wipes (24 individually wrapped sheets/ $11) , which are hands down the best makeup remover wipes on the planet. I cannot say enough good things about the Alcone wipes, but they are a bit too expensive for my taste.  In between all of these products, I’ve used baby wipes, which kind of get the job done.

But then, a box of Yes To Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes (30 sheets/$5.99) arrived at my door with a few other things. I used them that during several photo ops, and after many long days sporting a full face of makeup. They don’t drip with makeup remover, didn’t sting or burn, and they smell divine. I’ve had a love affair with cucumber scented products forever. They even make a set conveniently for travel (10 wipes/$2.99).

The Yes to empire is more detailed then I realized. Each scent of products works with a different issue.

  • Yes to cucumbers is for soothing/sensitive skin
  • Yes to carrots is for normal to dry skin and hair
  • Yes to tomatoes is for combination/acne prone skin
  • Yes to blueberries is for age damaged/mature skin

Great stuff! I purchased my products at Target, and these products are available at over 30,000 locations worldwide!

    Thanks for the suggestion! I was on the lookout for some effective (yet inexpensive) makeup remover wipes for my kit…especially after my stash being depleted during NYFW! I’ll check this out.

    p.s. Does it do a REALLY good job at removing makeup though? You mentioned the Alcone wipes are excellent, but didn’t really emphasize that fact on this one.  Let me know :) … Thnx

      Hey Khadine! These wipes really do work, especially for everyday use! I found that when I used baby wipes, they would take off some of the makeup, and I needed to use a liquid remover to get everything else off. That’s not the case with these. However, The Alcone wipes were superior. I felt like they are perfect for mua’s because they are really large and very powerful. They’d take off a pound of makeup. I think you’ll find these useful in your kit, but Alcone would be exceptional.

    Thanks for the review. I wonder – is it “okay” to use makeup remover towelettes (like the MAC ones) just to wash your face? (There are plenty of times when I come back from the gym, sans makeup and just want to wipe my face. But I don’t know if using the MAC wipes would just cause me to end up with a bunch of makeup remover on my face.)
