Review on Neutrogena Makeup Wipe Remover vs Garnier Nutri-Pure for makeup removal

Hi Everyone! =D

Today I will be reviewing the Neutrogena Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes vs the Garnier Nutri-Pure Cleansing Towelettes

Neutrogena Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes
This product costs $6-8. It can be found at Ulta, any drugstore or online. It is said to remove dirt, oil, any kind of makeup, even water proof and waterproof mascara.
It contains 25 towelettes.

What do I think of this product?
So, I was looking for a quick, travel-friendly makeup remover towelettes and I picked this up at CVS and used it for at least 4 months. And...I did not like it. Yes it removes makeup well enough however the side effects were not good. My skin always stung when I used these wipes and would feel very tight and dry afterward. My skin would also get red and irritated after using these wipes. It was annoying and I really didn't like it.

Do I recommend this product?
If you have sensitive and/or dry skin I do not recommend these makeup remover wipes. They will make you sting, burn, and turn red. Try something else. If you feel your skin is tough enough to withstand these acidic wipes, then you are free to try, but in the long run, I do not think it is good for your skin.

Garnier Nutri-Pure detoxifying wet cleansing towelettes
This product costs $4-6 and can be found at any drugstore or online. It contains 25 towelettes and is said to be oil free with Vitamin E. B5, and grape extract as antioxidants and to prevent the skin from over drying. It is also said to contain green leaf extract to sooth and refresh the skin. It is said to remove dirt, oil, makeup and is dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested. It is said to be non-comedogenic and allergy tested.

What do I think of this product?
So, I got a sample pack from my aunt who asked me to try it out to see if I liked it. And I gave it a shot and was pleasantly surprised! =) This towelette removes all of my makeup well, which is good because I like waterproof makeup. It did not irritate or redden my sensitive skin. It did not feel any stinging or burning. My face did not feel tight but it may have felt a little dry. I'm okay with that because I always wash my face after removing makeup with a towelette anyway. I have been using this for about a month and I like it! I bought a full sized pack and threw away my Neutrogena one.

Do I recommend this product?
I recommend this product to all skin types! I really enjoy how it does not irritate my skin at all and because of that it feels refreshing! And of course, it does what it says, and removes all my makeup. =) If you happen to have very reactive, sensitive skin, talk to your dermatologist or go for more cream based makeup removers, but I think this is a great product to try. It is also cheaper than the Neutrogena one.

Comparison
Well, it's pretty obvious, but I like the Garnier version better because it does not irritate my skin. Perhaps the Neutrogena one is too intense or strong for my skin and may work for a tougher skin type. But if you want to try and buy a makeup remover wipe, I do recommend the Garnier one! And it is cheaper too! haha

Note: I tagged this under makeup and skincare because it is a part of the makeup removing process and more importantly important for the skincare process. When I say skincare process, I do not mean that you should use this for you skin. I don't think wipes are good enough to clean the skin everyday. I am saying it is a part of skincare because it is important to remove as much makeup as possible before you go to bed. =) Otherwise your pores will get clogged and you will get acne, which sucks. =/ So I hope this clarifies why this is under makeup and skincare! Thanks!

So I hope you liked my comparison post! If you have an comments or questions feel free to write in the comment box below =) Thank you for reading and I will see you later!
