This segment of Facial Wipe Wednesday is a product that you might not expect. This is a facial wipe from the makers of the Puffs facial tissues, called Puffs Fresh Faces…

As you can see, it’s a decorative box made to leave out on the vanity. My various photos in today’s post show two different color boxes. The photos above have a truer color, a pink shade, than the others I took in sunlight. I’m OK with either color, actually.

This pretty box came free with a three-pack of Puff tissues. I couldn’t find a count on this box however,upon research online, I found the count to be 45. I like that the opening is plastic to keep the wipes from drying out…

At first glance, you make think these wipes are personal wipes. However, they are called Puffs Fresh Faces. Even though I could use them as personal wipes, they are not meant to be flushed down the toilet. Puffs Fresh Faces is made in the USA…

The promotional ingredient in these wipes is Saline. Saline has a pretty stable pH balance close to what skin is. Once other ingredients are added, however, that pH can change. The premises of this wipe is to keep the skin moist while removing makeup and dirt…

Here’s what I do know: these wipes smell exactly like toilet paper. Or, Puffs tissues. I find that a pleasant fragrance and it doesn’t stick around long after I have used a wipe on my face. It didn’t sting or even bother my eyes. I found that these wipes weren’t too effective on waterproof or regular mascara. But, I did find that the wipes made my face feel super clean when I used it on a bare face, for example, on days I wore no makeup at all.

The wipes are standard size and I didn’t edit this photo on purpose because Libby was up on the Vanity inspecting my work. You can see her tail at the far left…

There’s just the wee bit of texture to the wipe…

And, this material is thinner than most, as you can see my hand through it. But, in use, it didn’t feel thin at all. It was very sturdy all the way through.

I was not able to find these wipes on the Puffs website so, I’m thinking they came and went already. However, I did find some for sale on the Amazon website.

Puffs Fresh Faces wipes are a hit as a freshen up facial wipe. And, if you don’t have any mascara on, it makes quick work of getting off all other makeup. I love the fragrance and even my husband found using them for a fresher face to be enjoyable.

Have you seen Puffs Fresh Faces? Would you mind using a facial wipe if it smelled like toilet paper?

  • I normally buy wipes soaked in makeup remover to help remove stubborn products at the end of the day, so I don’t think this would work for me, but it’s good to know they work well for freshening up!

      If you are swatching anything but waterproof makeup, these would probably work. It was just mascara I found them to be pesky about removing.

  • I have never heard of these! I love face wipes, so I’ll have to look for them!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I thought, originally, my husband would use them up before I got to them. He likes to refresh his (bald) head with these. 😉

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    I really like the idea of the box that stays on my vanity and doesn’t let the wipes dry out. I don’t wear waterproof mascara so these would be good for me. I love Puffs tissues so maybe this would work for me

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I found the box to be pretty too. I had it out on one of the shelves in our master bathroom.

  • BeautyJudy

    I would use these to freshen my face on no makeup days. That’s a shame they may have already come and gone!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I’ll have to look for them in the store. I saw that Walgreens website said they don’t have them anymore. Heck, I got these back in February!

  • Cindy Ingalls

    I had no idea Puffs made face wipes, but these look intriguing.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I thought it was a pretty good idea since I love their tissues.

  • Norah Salazar

    I need to find these, they look awesome.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I found them totally easy to use.

  • These actually sound really nice! I had never considered that saline would be good for removing makeup.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I haven’t seen any other products touting saline either. I imagine if it’s good for the eyes, it should be good for the skin, right?

  • Cute packaging! Saline sounds like a good idea for the skin. Most wipes don’t remove waterproof mascara; I would be happy if it took off everything else.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Since I use waterproof mascara most of the time, I wish the wipes would work on removing that as well. These gave me not-so-cute panda eyes.

  • I liked these when I kept a box around too! I love how many comes in the package!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Actually, it took up too much room in my drawer so, it was easy to set on the shelf.

  • I have the urge to go to my bathroom and see what my toilet paper smells like…

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Hopefully, it smells good. I thought of Charmin right away when I smelled these wipes.

  • marciaf

    I don’t actually like the smell of Puff Tissues but I like their packaging. I’ll often use a wipe in the morning if I don’t shower. I’ll clean my face and then to my routine so these would be useful for something like that for me.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Yes, it would, exactly.

  • FabZilla_Kath

    Sounds like a nice wipe overall

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I really did like using it when I did a no makeup day.

  • I am loving the packaging on these – I would give them a try!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      It was the cutest packaging for wipes I think I have ever reviewed.

  • Justina

    I love Puffs!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      My husband has bad allergies and we go through Puffs like you wouldn’t believe!

  • Nice packaging!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Cute, isn’t it?

  • I like the packaging on these for sure. Interesting concept and I think it’s nice that Puffs has ventured this way. I love Puffs tissues. Haven’t seen these in the store yet but I’ll add to my list of things to try.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I am wondering if these weren’t part of some test marketing since they were packaged with a Puffs 3-pack. I went looking for where to purchase them and they weren’t on Puffs website and Walgreens doesn’t carry them anymore. I only found them on Amazon.

  • I had no idea Puffs had facial wipes!!!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I didn’t either until I saw them free with the Puff tissue pack. You can bet that was the pack I picked up.

  • Cosmetic Sanctuary

    I have never seen these before! I might grab them for Summer!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Totally worth it as quick facial wipes for when it gets hot and sweaty.

  • I haven’t seen these! You are the best at finding good wipes!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I love a good shopping hunt.
