Review: Ponds Wet Cleansing Towelettes

by Marcy on September 18, 2009 · 0 comments

Recently I had the opportunity to review a package of Pond’s Wet Cleansing Towelettes. I was asked to try both the Pond’s product and a competitor – Olay Daily Facials Express Wet Cleansing Cloths. I had never used either of these products before, so I was interested to see how I liked them.

When comparing the Pond’s Towelettes to the Olay Towelettes, I will say that I preferred both the scent and the feel of the Pond’s product over the Olay product. In terms of how clean the products got my face, there was no noticeable difference to me.

Typically I use face wash and water to remove my make up each night rather than towelettes. I will say that I really like the convenience the towelettes on night when I was tired and didn’t want to spend a lot of time on my bed time routine. They are great for travel as well – and to take to the hospital when having a baby, surgery etc…

Perhaps my favorite thing about the towelettes (both brands) is that they are great at removing eye make up – especially mascara. In fact, now that I am done reviewing these products, I use my face wash as normal, and then go back and clean off my mascara with the towelettes.

I was a little concerned about “residue” and about breakouts when using these products, but I did not find either of those concerns to be an issue.

If I had to choose between these two products, it would be close. I did like the Pond’s product slightly better than the Olay product because of the texture and the scent (as mentioned before), but I think I would be happy using the Olay product as well. It would probably come down to price and whether both products are available at the stores where I shop.

If you are interested in trying the Pond’s Towelettes, you can print $1.50/1 coupons here and here.
