Pixi Moisturizing Cleansing Cloths ($10) are one of several new Pixi Skincare products that launched recently for Spring 2016. Far be it for me to get excited about makeup removing wipes but I was kinda hyped that Pixi was introducing an affordable cleansing wipe pick that were ten bucks for 40. I had this brief moment in time where I was all like, “OOOOOO maybe they will put MAC ones to shame!”
They market these bad boys as a hydrating cleansing cloth to refresh skin and remove impurities. Ok, wait, so they don’t remove makeup!?
I’m honestly confused with this. There, I said it. Apparently they “refine and condition skin” while removing dirt and oil in one step. NO WHERE does it mention makeup will also be lifted away. Which is a good thing because if they told me these remove makeup I’d be pissed!
Because they are bone dry. So much for moisturizing my skin! These aren’t terribly saturated and they MIGHT remove some dirt and oil but don’t expect them to get down and dirty by removing your makeup because no go. I mean, I typically rely on face wipes when I get home really late on a Saturday after partying like it’s 1999. You know those days you’re like, “Damn, I don’t want to double cleanse! I want to go straight to bed!” This is when makeup remover wipes and micellar water becomes your best friend.
So, what do I take away from this review?
That Pixi Moisturizing Cleansing Cloths are not a makeup removing wipe but more of a refreshing wipe. Kinda, sorta but not really. I didn’t get the moisture benefits here to be honest and just felt these were a rather dry, disappointing wipe.
Sorry Pixi, you know I love you!
Just not loving your Cleansing Clothes.
