Some nights, you just have zero energy to go through your entire face-washing routine. You literally just want to crawl into bed and drift off into La La Land, but you know that it’s really bad for your skin to sleep without removing your makeup.
That’s where the Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleansing Wipes come in.
I don’t use them all the time – maybe a few times a month.
They’re very handy when you’re in a pinch, but I suggest that you don’t use them regularly because disposable products aren’t great for the environment. I do feel guilty when I use these sometimes because they contribute to the landfills.

Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleansing Wipes Review
Scent is a really important thing to me. If something smells really bad, even if the product works wonders, I will pass on it.
Thankfully, these Clean & Clear makeup wipes don’t smell bad. They smell very clean and soapy. Think bar soap – it’s that kind of fresh scent. While it’s not offensive to my nose, I also can’t say that I love the scent. It’s very generic.
The scent is medium in terms of strength, so you will notice it when you use it, especially when you’re wiping around your nose and cheeks. But, even if you aren’t a fan of the scent, don’t worry, it doesn’t linger. You really only smell it when you’re using the wipes.
The Clean & Clear makeup wipes are supposed to remove even waterproof mascara, but since I don’t wear mascara, I didn’t test out that claim.
However, I do wear waterproof eye liner, and with minimal rubbing, I was able to remove every trace of it. Also, the Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation that I’ve been wearing lately comes off easily with these wipes. (I never wear those super long-wearing foundations, so I couldn’t test it with that.)
My skin felt clean and refreshed after using the pre-moistened wipe. Plus I didn’t experience that tight feeling, which makes me think that it doesn’t strip my skin of the natural oils. (By the way, these wipes are oil-free, opthamologist-tested, safe for contact-lens wearers, and allergy-tested.)
I have sensitive skin, and while some makeup wipes irritate my skin, these didn’t. My face felt comfortable and soft.
You don’t need to rinse your face after you use the wipes. These are great when you’re travelling or camping.
The packaging is very minimal. It’s plastic, and on the top, there’s a reusable sticker seal. You lift one side of it to reveal an opening so you can grab a wipe.
Make sure that when you put the seal back, you don’t leave any unsealed parts or your wipes can dry out. Also, I recommend you store the package upside down so the top wipe always is moist and ready to use.
Final Verdict: 9.5/10
I’ve tried a few different makeup wipes, and the Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleansing Wipes are one of my favourites because they clean well and don’t leave my skin feeling tight or gross with an oily film.
I recommend these if you need something in a pinch when you’re really tired or are travelling. But, please don’t use them daily because Mother Nature will put you on her naughty list. And you don’t want to get on her bad side.
