Makeup Review: Drugstore Exfoliating Apricot Towelettes

I've been working for about a month now and I think I've finally adjusted to my daily routine.  There are things I look forward to at work and other things I look forward to at home.  The biggest thing I look forward to while I'm at work about to head home (besides pay day) is getting rid of all the makeup and dirt on my face.  I have a simple routine when I come home from work where I immediately remove my makeup before anything else.  When you work long days in Manhattan and pile on top of that a rugged commute, all you want to do is wipe your face (and maybe body) clean.

I did a quick run to CVS last week in a mission to purchase makeup remover wipes.  I amwas a Neutrogena makeup wipes user until I saw the CVS ones that are about 50% cheaper.  I'm not sure how many different towelettes that are of the CVS brand, but the ones that I purchased are real interesting and have a sweet scent.  The Exfoliating Apricot towelettes are pre-moistened wipes that are oil-free and remove dirt and oil from pores.  One side of the apricot-scented towelette is smooth to remove makeup.  The other side has textured beads to gently exfoliate and deeply remove dirt from your pores.

For someone who deals with deep pores and acne-prone skin, these wipes pretty much take care of my nighttime skincare routine.  These wipes are not harsh on the skin and I haven't had a terrible breakout since using these.  With the Neutrogena wipes, I use it to remove all of my makeup including my eyes.  With the CVS wipes, I feel that the wipes are a bit rough to use on the eyes.  The only reason I say that is because the other side has the exfoliating beads.

Overall I'm pretty impressed by these wipes and certainly plan on purchasing more in the future.  Like I said earlier, I'm not sure about the number of towelette variations there are with the CVS brand.  If you're strolling through the beauty aisle of any CVS store, check out the CVS makeup towelettes.  These are pretty inexpensive so even if you have wipes, pick these up and just try them out.  All of my (face) makeup is removed leaving my face smooth as if I just washed it with a face cleanser.
