Olay Fresh Effects

Olay Fresh Effects
S'Wipe Out! Refreshing Make-Up Removal

While perusing CVS I saw those new Olay face products that are part of the Fresh Effects line. They run around $8-$12 dollars for the various products. I love face wipes because they are just super convenient to have around. So you can imagine my excitement when they were $3.99 each instead of the $8.29 reg price! I ended up buying 4 of them because that's all that was left. Yup I cleared the shelf, but they were restocked the next day so don't be so mad.

Anyway, the wipes are packaged much like most face wipes. I've kind of got a love hate relationship with this kind of packaging. I like the packaging as its pretty easy to open and throw into a bag. I hate the packaging because sometimes the top loses its stickiness. When that happens you basically have a package of napkins because they're useless. Now the wipes are a good size and work really well. They have a sweet clean smell to them and they're really moist.

So how do they stand up to a face full of make-up? Well I had mixed results. It took off my cream, power, and eyeshadow quickly and easily. I did have to wipe a few times though, but after two swipes it was completely off. Now for the eyeliner and mascara - well it didn't take it off much at all. I had to go over it with my Almay remover pads to get it all off. It still worked really well and left my skin feeling good afterwards. That's thanks to the vitamin E it has in it. I think for $8.79 its an expensive buy, so if you see it on sale I'd pick it up. I don't think I'd buy it at retail price because it wasn't too different from other face wipes.
