Toweling Off: Garnier The Refreshing Remover Cleansing Towelettes

Does anyone actually enjoy washing their faces at night? It's such a hassle -- when all you want to do is flop into bed, you have to spend extra time using makeup remover, cleanser, masks. Ugh. So when I came across the Garnier Nutritioniste The Refreshing Remover Cleansing Towelettes, I was more than a little skeptical. How could a single towelette clear my face entirely of all the makeup I'd worn and the impurities I'd collected in my skin throughout the day? There was no way, I thought.

So I set to work giving it the best test I could imagine. I piled on foundation, concealer, eyeliner, eyeshadow, mascara and lipstick, wore all of that all day long, and let my face get as dirty as humanly possible ... well, at least as dirty as it could while sitting at a desk in my office. When it was finally time to give these towelettes a road test, I peeled back the sticky front -- which reminds me of the pouch for those Clorox wipes you use to clean your bathroom -- and pulled one out. Immediately, I was attracted to the smell, which is the same fresh, citrusy-floral scent that's used in all Garnier Fructis products.

As I began to sweep it across my face, a true miracle happened. All of the makeup came off in a single swipe -- there was no intense rubbing needed, like I sometimes have to do with my eye makeup remover. In addition, my skin felt fresh, energized and rejuvenated thanks to infusions of Vitamin B, green leaf extract and Vitamin E. And since the towelettes are oil-free, there was no greasy residue! After using these every day for the last week, I can safely say my sensitive skin has not had any sort of allergic reaction to them -- on the contrary, it feels amazing after each use.
