Yes, it is good.

I use either them (like if I'm traveling, visiting a friend or relative for a quick trip) or micellar water more often but I also wash w/Cetaphil after.

I like to take my makeup off, using the wipes, as soon as I can, really. I don't sit around with a face full of makeup all night, if I'm just hanging around the house.



I never use a washcloth. What do you do with a damp washcloth afterwards? Do you put it in the wash, or dry it out to use again? I wouldn't fancy using a washcloth a second time, if it had been hanging around, being damp.
I use each washcloth once. I have a stack of white washcloths, bought years ago at Costco, that I use for washing my face. I have discovered the soft minky style washcloth for travel. Those you rinse out and leave to dry for use again the next day.

I never liked tissues on my skin. Tissues are irritating. I do know that not everyone has such irritabe skin as I do. For every day, washcloths work best for skin cleansing for me.

It depends on the ingredients. When I use the wipes, I usually use Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes in the pink grapefruit scent. Those have more natural ingredients than standard wipes.

Normally though, I remove my makeup with either NYX micellar water on a cotton round, or coconut oil for lip and eye makeup, soap and water for face makeup.

I use wipes sometimes but usually follow it with a lighter cleansing. I like how the wipes remove a lot of the eye makeup first.

Try the micellar water. It is a cousin to toner but more cleansing. And some remove makeup (even waterproof).

This one is good: Micellar Cleansing Water & Makeup Remover - Garnier SkinActive

I use Simple face cleansing wipes for sensitive skin followed by a quick rinse with the washcloth to remove any leftover mascara and then some witch hazel on a cotton round to remove any residue. If I have a lot of eye make-up I use Neutrogena eye make-up remover for sensitive eyes first but for everyday the Simple wipes work fine.

I use wipes to remove make up, followed by Lancome's eye makeup remover. If I try anything else, like coconut oil, it gets in my eyes and takes forever to get out. I don't think I use too much but I must do something wrong. It does seem like coconut oil would be better for skin than other removal products.
