The first packet of Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towelettes I encountered was a GWP, I don't even remember from whom. I tucked it in a drawer and eventually started using it for removing swatched makeup from my arm. Thus, I discovered that not only did I enjoy the salad smell of these towelettes (it's as cucumbery as they come. A bit weird at first, but oh so refreshing), but I also find them gentle and very effective. I gave them a spin on my face.
Learning that Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towelettes are also biodegradable (just like the Josie Maran ones) sealed the deal for me. They remove everything, including mascara leftovers under the eyes after I use an eye makeup remover, do a decent job at gently exfoliating and making skin look and feel clean and never give my face that tight, dehydrated feeling of an overachieving cleanser.
These Yes To Cucumbers towelettes have become my quick fix, shortcut on late nights and makeup bag companions. The cucumber smell still catches me by surprise every time, but I find it cute. It's a cheap thrill that I make sure never to be without.
Bottom Line: a staple.
Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towelettes ($6.99) are available from Ulta, drugstore.com and Wallgreens.
