Facial Wipe Wednesday: Aveeno Ultra-Calming Makeup Removing Wipes

For this installment of Facial Wipe Wednesday, I went looking for something that was known to be soothing and gentle to skin. In the last installment of Facial Wipe Wednesday, I reviewed Target’s Up and Up facial wipes and I didn’t have a good experience at all. Up and Up made my face sting and it hurt! So, I looked for a brand that would be kind to my skin. I found it with Aveeno…

I was instantly drawn to the words ‘calming’ and ‘gently soothes’. That was exactly what I wanted. I’m happy to report that Aveeno’s Ultra-Calming makeup removing wipes did exactly that.

Do you remember when you used to buy products that you’d use on a daily basis and they would have a 30 counts? Well, I think companies are being not-too-sneaky and lowing the counts on items so as to not raise the prices…

Nevertheless, I did find Ultra-Calming wipes to be totally efficient at removing my makeup. As I have stated in other posts, I don’t have sensitive skin but I wanted to find something that gave my face a nice ‘ahhhh’ after wiping off my makeup. These Aveeno wipes are ones that I would recommend to my sensitive-skin friends because it was that gentle…

After using a wipe, I found that following up with a toner wasn’t necessary, although it is something I do to test how well the wipes hold the grime. These Ultra-Calming wipes held onto the makeup it was removing and didn’t smear it around my face. Now I’m even gleeful!

These wipes were standard size and had a gentle texture to them…

A list of the ingredients didn’t yield anything that made me concerned. I know that aloe, feverfew and cucumber are soothing to the skin…

The opening was a plastic rim and that usually is good enough and, my preferred type of opening for wipes. Aveeno did have a peel top inside the rim, however, I left it in place just for the extra sealing…

Here’s what I do know: Aveeno Ultra-Calming facial wipes ARE calming. They do the job and they do it very well. I didn’t feel that my skin was totally stripped of all its moisture but I didn’t feel any type of residue left behind. They are just a tiny bit more expensive than some other wipes but, at $5.99, I feel they are fairly priced. I did pick mine up at Target when they were on sale for $5.49.

Again, Aveeno is a brand known for being gentle to skin. Their Ultra-Cleaning makeup removing wipes hold true to that proclamation.

Have you tried Aveeno wipes before? What other Aveeno products do you recommend?
