Another new find in the health and beauty aisle is Trader Joe's Cucumber and Citrus Face and Body Wipes. However, this is an interesting find as Trader Joe's already sells Micellar Cleanser and Make Up Wipes are already on shelves.
A comparison between products
However, both are priced at $3.99. So what is the difference?
First off, this package contains 64 wipes as opposed to the 20 wipes in the micellar.
And then there is the fragrance. The micellar had no fragrance which is great for those who are sensitive to it. These are scented wipes. And I adore the scent. I mean I opened the package and smelled these like, "mmmmm."
They were citrusy but also had that subtle smell of cucumber. But it was nothing that I found irritating especially nice I used these as makeup wipes. However, I know some people are sensitive to smells so that might have to be a consideration for some.
Overall did a pretty good job as makeup wipes. Foundation and most eye makeup came off pretty easily. Mascara was pushing it in terms of performance. I found that these wipes would need more moisture in order to get mascara off without much tugging.
However, at the end of the day, it really comes down to whether or not you can tolerate the fragrance here. Otherwise, they seem to be on par with most other wipes on the market. Plus, overall they are a better value than the Micellar just in quantity per package.
Would I buy this again? While this is no replacement for my Makeup Eraser cloth, Trader Joe's Cucumber and Citrus Face and Body Wipes do make a nice one-time use wipe for on the go.
Now, if you have tried these, especially with kids, let me know how they work below.
