I have to admit the Yes to Tomatoes Clear Skin Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Wipes ($5.99) are crazy interesting. Charcoal is an excellent ingredient for drawing out makeup, dirt, oil, and impurities from your skin. It actually acts like a magnet and sucks all the gunk out.
The idea of a facial wipe that contains charcoal was interesting. But there’s a problem or two…
Yes to Tomatoes Clear Skin Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Wipes are $5.99 for 30 wipes so they are affordable, budget friendly option. Honestly, you probably don’t want to use these to remove makeup. For one thing, Yes to Tomatoes doesn’t promote these as a makeup remover wipe. And secondly, they are black so, it’s a little difficult to see if your makeup is actually removed. I mean, a regular cleansing wipe is white and as you remove your makeup you’ll likely check the wipe on each pass to make sure there’s nothing left. You can’t do that with these. They are black in color so, it is impossible to see when everything is completely off your face.
They actually work best after you cleanse your face as you can just use them as a double cleansing tool of sorts to draw out any gunk that your cleanser left behind!
However, I should warn you they do have a good deal of fragrance. It’s a nice fragrance but it is pretty strong. Also, I felt a little itchy and a little tingly after using them. I had a bad experience with Freeman Blue Agave Hydrating Facial Paper Mask a few years ago and I have to admit these felt a little bit like that. After I use them my entire face felt itchy with a bit of a tingle. Mind you, it wasn’t nearly as bad as it was with the Freeman Mask but it is worth mentioning if you’re a sensitive user. I don’t have sensitive skin myself so, imagine if you do?
I like the idea of Yes to Tomatoes Clear Skin Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Wipes but they might have a bit too much tingle for some user!
