Cheapalicious Beauty: Neutrogena Oil-free Pink Grapefruit Cleansing Wipes

Around this time of the year, my skin starts to go haywire.  I have oily, acne prone skin, so when the temperature rises, here comes the shine and breakouts. Argh. To keep my skin feeling fresh throughout the day, I usually carry a pack of facial cleansing wipes in my purse.  After Clearasil  discontinued the Daily Oil Control Green Tea cleansing wipes, I've been on the hunt for a wipe that not only clears away excess facial oil, but doesn't break me out either.  After seeing so many positive reviews out in the blogosphere about the Neutrogena Oil-Free Pink Grapefruit Cleansing wipes, I decided to pick some up from Target and give them a try.

Neutrogena Oil-free Pink Grapefruit cleansing wipes $6.99, most drugstores

The Good:  I like that the wipes are kinda thick and they left my skin feeling clean and fresh- not sticky like most cleasing wipes I've tried in the past. They're damp, but not overly saturated.  Although the second ingredient on the list is alcohol, I didn't experience any dryness, but I think these wipes wouldn't be suitable for someone with dry or sensitive skin.

The Bad:  Although the grapefruit smell doesn't bother ME much, it's a bit strong and may be a little overpowering for some people.  I haven't used these to remove makeup yet, but since these wipes contain grapefruit extract, I wouldn't recommend removing eye makeup with these- they may sting your eyes.  Also, if fragrance and parabens aren't your thing, then these wipes may not be for you.

Overall, I like these wipes, and I will purchase them again.  They are now my new fave, unless of course, Clerasil brings back their oil control green tea wipes....

Have you tried these cleansing wipes?  What did you like/ dislike about them?
