Giveaway & Review: Pond's Towelettes [CLOSED]

After my first son was born, taking care of myself took a backseat. After the twins were born, taking care of myself went out the car window. For this reason, I need skincare that is quick, convenient, and effective.

I was happy to try the new Pond's Towelettes because they do not require me to add water to create a lather or to rinse after cleansing. They also come in an easy-to-use resealable package that doubles as a dispenser. It literally takes me less than 60 seconds to clean my face and neck. The variety I am using is the "original clean", but these cloths also come in "age defying" and "micro dermabrasion".




What else I thought about Pond's Wet Cleansing Towelettes:

1) These towelettes have a very light clean scent.

2) When I first took the towelette out of the package, I could see little soap bubbles in the cloth. I was concerned that this would irritate my skin without any rinsing, but it actually did not. I did not feel any irritation and I did not break out.

3) The cloth is extremely soft and is almost pampering.

4) The packaging is extremely convenient and is perfect to keep in the medicine cabinet, in an overnight bag, in a diaper bag, and in a purse or backpack.

5) I like that this cleansing cloth also removes eye make up safely, including waterproof mascara. It is much more convenient than having a separate eye make up remover.

6) I also like that these cloths are safe for contact lens users. Although I no longer use contact lenses, I know these cloths are gentle on my eyes, which are easily irritated.



7) In addition to antioxidants, these cloths contain Vitamin E, which I am hoping will help in the long run with the slight scarring I have from breaking out during my pregnancy with the twins.




If you'd like to learn more about the three varieties of Pond's Towelettes, visit the Pond's website. You should be able to find these cleansing cloths most places where Pond's products are sold.
