There are those nights when I come home at a crazy hour. All I want to do is hit the sack, but of course I have to brush my teeth and wash my face (especially since I wear makeup).
Normally I use the Philosophy Purity Made Simple cleanser, but for nights when I’m about to drop dead from exhaustion, facial wipes are what I groggily reach for. I don’t use them on a regular basis, though.
So when I got the opportunity to try the Yes To Cucumbers Natural Glow Facial Towelettes, I was eager because it contains some certified organic ingredients and actually is made of biodegradable material, so you don’t have to feel guilty about adding to the landfill.
How effectively do these cleanse your skin? Are they gentle enough for sensitive skin? There’s only one way to find out!

Yes To Cucumbers Natural Glow Facial Towelettes Review
There is a very mild scent that actually does remind me of cucumbers. It’s light and fresh – doesn’t smell like chemicals or heavy perfume like some disposable facial wipes do.
Is It Safe for Sensitive Skin & the Eye Area?
Yes! I have sensitive skin, and my eyes are also very sensitive, so I was a prime candidate to test this out. I’m pleased to report that I didn’t have any irritation after using this. And I didn’t break out, either.
This product was ophthalmologist tested and claims to be hypoallergenic. It’s also oil-free and non-comedogenic.
Does It Cleanse Well & Remove Makeup Effectively?
It did remove all of my mineral foundation off my face, and my skin didn’t feel tight or dry afterwards. (I purposely skipped using a moisturizer afterwards to test this.) This is probably because it doesn’t contain any alcohol, which can be extremely drying.
It also can remove waterproof makeup, but you’ll have to do a bit of rubbing to get it all off. (It removed my waterproof Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil that I was wearing after I went over the area a few times.)
How Moist Are These Towelettes?
I’ve tried a few different brands. Some were wetter and some are naturally drier. These are on the drier side, but are still moist enough that you don’t feel like you’re just running a tissue over your face.
How Do You Use It?
Just pull one sheet out from the pack and wipe your face! You don’t need to use any water, and you don’t need to rinse your face after using it. Because of this, they’re perfect for traveling.
For those who want to use more natural products, you’ll love the Yes To Cucumbers Natural Glow Facial Towelettes. They contain 98.7% natural ingredients, according to the packaging. There are even a few certified organic ingredients.
The Yes To company doesn’t support animal testing, so you can feel good about that!
You may think that disposable wipes will just pile up in the landfill, but these are great because according to the package, they’re actually “biodegradable, natural cloth, FSC fabric”.
It’s pretty standard. The Yes To Cucumbers face wipes come in a recyclable package with a plastic lid that can be snapped shut to keep air out.
What really got me was that when you flip the lid open, you’re greeted with a fun message: “Wipe that smile ON your face!” It made me laugh.
Any wipes can dry out if you don’t store them properly and keep the cover closed. I suggest keeping the package turned upside down. That way the moist towelette will be the one on top, which is the one you’ll use.

Just look at the “Pros” list compared to the “Cons”! I think that might be the biggest “Pros” list I’ve ever typed up on Swatch And Learn!
Overall, the Yes to Cucumbers Natural Glow Facial Towelettes are excellent for those nights when you’re too lazy to use a regular cleanser. Plus it’s packed with natural ingredients, it’s biodegradable, and it won’t leave your skin dry or tight.
Do you use disposable wipes when you’re tired, too? Have you ever tried the Yes To Cucumbers, Yes To Carrots, or Yes To Blueberries products? Are you trying to use more products with natural ingredients?
