Yes to Grapefruit Brightening Facial Towelettes Review

Yes to Grapefruit Brightening Facial Towelettes

The new Yes To Grapefruit Brightening Towelettes are formulated with the Vitamin C found in Grapefruit to naturally exfoliate your skin while cleansing it of makeup, oil, and dirt.

They also promise one of my favorite things when it comes to skincare, a bright complexion! Yes please, take my dullness away.

Take a look!

Yes to Grapefruit is a recently Spring 2013 launch that features a variety of products to address dark spots and dullness. The products are 98% Natural with a paraben-free formula.

These are generously sized facial wipes that are scented like bright, sunny grapefruit. I think the scent might be a little too much for those with sensitive skin so just be aware prior to a purchase. Personally I loved the scent. They smell gorgeous and I’m all about deliciously scented skincare.

Each wipe is about twice the size of a normal makeup remover wipe so they are a generous size. The wipes are textured which allows for gentle exfoliation as you swipe away makeup, dirt, and oil. They remove makeup fairly well even waterproof mascara. I know that’s unheard of but I was wearing Clinique High Impact yesterday and it easily removed a majority of the mascara I had on plus heavy eyeshadow without an issue. I did follow up with cleansing oil after but for the most part the wipes removed about 85% of my makeup. Not too shabby!

They aren’t sticky or tacky nor are they too terribly saturated. They leave skin soft but not greasy, oily, or even dewy after use. I’m unsure if the brightening aspect is working for me unfortunately.

At $5.99 for a pack of 25 they are reasonably priced so if you’re looking for a new cleansing wipe to use I’d recommend checking these out. One thing that stuck out for me was the larger size of each wipe, I didn’t feel like I needed two wipes to do my face!


These are available now at major drugstores as well as Ulta or check out for more info www.yestocarrots.com

Anyone try em?

Or anything from the Yes to Grapefruit Collection?

Do share!

    I ordered the face scrub/wash from Ulta over the weekend… will be interested to see what it can do to my face! I love the smell of grapefruit and I really like the neutrogena grapefruit scrub (although that one is for acne of course)

  • Icequeen81

    I love the taste and smell of Grapefruit so I think I will like it. But then again regretfully they dont sell this brand here. I would love to try the berry ones too

  • blueraccoon

    I haven’t tried these but the Yes to Cucumbers wipes really irritated my eyes, so I stopped using them. I’m a little wary of these as a result. I think I’ll stick to my Boots and Simple wipes, those don’t give me any problems.

    • cat

      I also prefer Simple to Yes to Cucumbers. Yes to Cucumbers leaves my skin feeling odd. It stings for a few moments, but not like I’m having an allergic reaction. Also, I don’t really trust cleansing products that have that much fragrance.

  • Debster

    Oooo I like the idea of a larger sized wipe. I always have to use 2 for my face, and that excites me!

  • Cj

    These better/bigger than mac wipes? I saw these the other day and had them in my cart but I ended up putting it back 🙁

    • the Muse

      I really like mac wipes tbh! but these are def cheaper ;-D Not as good as MAC though, I don’t think anything is good as MAC wipes ;-D

      • Cj

        Oh ok good lol now I don’t feel bad putting them back XD Mac wipes are my go to wipes 😛 I always keep a pack in my bag and night stand 😛

        • the Muse

          I like those big huge economy size ones ;-D I always get a pack when in a mac store they just remove swatches and makeup so easily 😀

  • Kiss & Make-up

    I have a couple of products from the Yes To Carrots and the Yes To Tomatoes line, but this one is new to me. Sounds interesting though!

  • Simone

    I’ve used the Y2Cucumbers & am on my second pack of Y2Blueberries.
    I think that once I finish those up, I’ll give these a go!
    I love grapefruit, and the size of these wipes are A+!

  • Cindy Ramirez

    Have you used the Korres pomegranate wipes? I’m obsessed with them but they’re 12 bucks for 25 wipes. This might be a cheap option when I run out!

  • Angela

    I was actually just eyeing this the other day. I’ve been really interested in this. Definitely going to check it out.

  • breyerchic04

    I use yes to blueberries wipes, and they’re great for my purposes, and also picked up the yes to grapefruit eyecream, no idea if it’s working but I can hope.

  • Amiee

    I picked up the day mousturizer but I’m not sure if it did anything since I also started using the Garniers Overnight Peel around the same time. I did like the moisturizer though.

    • the Muse

      how’s the garnier working for you aimee? I didn’t have great results with it :-/

      • Amiee

        It’s helping fade my red acne scars. I don’t have dark hyperpigmentation so not sure how it would tackle that buy my acne scars are fading 🙂

  • Claire

    My friend uses the Yes to Cucumber wipes but never mentioned anything about it being irritating or anything like that. I don’t really like grapefruit either. Has anyone tried the Korres wipes? I’d love to know how those are.

  • Rose

    Has anyone actually used these? Do they really smell like grapefruit? The cucumber ones irritated my skin and I won’t buy them again. But i like the blueberry ones and use them frequently.
