Target Up & Up Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes Review

About a month ago I purchased the Target brand Up & Up Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes, which were on sale for $4.19 (30 pack).  

This particular product states that it compares to Ponds Clean Sweep wipes, which I don’t believe I have ever tried, so I can’t really compare the two. These particular makeup remover cleansing Towelettes claim to “help remove makeup and impurities, quilted for deep cleaning, with triple tea antioxidant complex – wash-away wonders

Overall this product does a god job in removing makeup with only a few swipes, it also does a great job in removing stubborn mascara and waterproof eyeliners, and the wipes are gentle and pretty soft. As far as helping remove impurities I didn't see any major changes in my skin, for the past month my impurities are still on my face – which is OK because I bought this pack just to remove my makeup not necessarily because I thought it would help my skin.  The wipes are very gentle on the skin, I do have sensitive skin and it never once broke me out.
There are a few things that I didn't like about this product, which will prevent me from ever purchasing again:
1)    The wipes are soaked in product; literally massive amounts of liquid would drip from each individual wipe (from the very 1st wipe I used, to the very last one).  This makes it very inconvenient and too much of a hassle to use, because it makes a big mess, you literally need a towel to wipe up the massive amount of liquid dripping from each wipe.

2)    Now this is the deal breaker….this product burned the heck out of my eyes, I’ve never had this happen before in any other makeup removing wipes I’ve used.  Every single time I went in to remove my mascara, eye-liner, and eye-shadow, it would make my eyes sting and burn so much – it was so unbearable.

Having said that, I did finish the entire pack because I did not want to waste my money, but I will not be purchasing these wipes again. Although it does a good job in removing my makeup, the stinging is way too unbearable; you may have a different experience and if you have used these wipes and didn’t feel any burning to your eyes please let me know. 

The wipes can be purchased at Target Stores, you can click here to view it on the Target site.
