My Thoughts: I keep these on my desk when I'm writing my reviews so that when I'm testing products on the back of my hand (whether it's a brand new product to cross my desk or I just want to refresh my memory with how it looks and feels on my skin while I'm writing) because they are a really inexpensive makeup cloth, and I can really use them up with impunity. They do a great job getting all the makeup off my hand without leaving a residue or drying my skin out.
They don't have an overpowering scent like some wipes can, and they are soft yet fairly durable. I wouldn't use them for removing waterproof eye makeup on my eye, because I just don't feel they are quite capable of removing it without a lot of rubbing. But they are great to have on hand when I need them. I especially love the price point, because I go through a looooooot of makeup remover wipes.
I love the packaging these come in. They have a handy plastic flip top that allows me quick easy access without them drying out! I hate when wipes come in a plastic sleeve with just a thin tab held in place by a sticker underside. As soon as that gets wet or a bit of makeup on it, they loose their stick, and my makeup remover wipes end up all dried out. Not cool when I go to pull out a wipe and wipe up with little more than a tissue.
Now because I can't be all "oh this is totally the most perfect thing ever" about any product and have to poke and prod until I find something that can be "complained" about (because let's face it- in this wide world web, you're always going to find some haters, so I might as well be preemptive and find their concerns to address up front), my "complaint" is this....they aren't very durable. I'd prefer a bit more thickness to them so that it doesn't feel as if it's going to tear if I do need to scrub a bit to remove a particularly stay proof product. It's fairly easy to combat this by laying the wipe across the area to start to dissolve the product on the surface of the skin for about 20 seconds before wiping. Oh, and like all makeup remover wipes, make sure that you do wash your face with cleanser afterwards. You need a deeper cleanse if you've worn a liquid or cream foundation to really remove every last trace from your pores before sleep.
Final Verdict: Totally worth a piddly $3. So worth it in fact, you should probably grab a few... along with a ton of other amazing finds from e.l.f. I mean makeup for $1?!
