Has anyone else noticed these dry out very easily if you don't keep them in some sort of closed container?

Yes, but rewetting them brings them right back to life. I used to keep my package upside down so the sticker stayed firmly in place. Then I found that they sell a pack with a container and that really helps too.

They sell a sonyainer to go with them. I believe it's only 1 or 2 dollars more. When you buy the box once you don't have to buy it again. Simple and easy fix!

yes they do, however for a couple extra dollars they sell them in a sealed container - i keep the container & just buy the packages now and put them into the container once opened. I love this product out of all the makeup removers i've used these are my favorite.

For a few more dollars, these are sold in a little box that is sturdy plastic and reusable. i purchased that version once and have used the box since to store new wipes and keep them from drying out.

I've noticed this too. I always like to keep mine in a ziplock bag, or else I end up wasting the top few wipes. You can also add some water to the wipes if they have dried out to wake them back up again.

Yes, they do and they're not very wet to begin with. I found Celavi wipes in a K-Beauty store and they are better- I think because of the packaging, like you can seal the celavi ones really tight because the closing tab is a lot stickier than Neutrogena's. I do have the tub for the Neutrogena and it helps but I totally agree, unless they're in there, they dry up super fast!

Yes they do dry out pretty quickly if you don't keep them in a container but an easy way to do this which actually saved you money is to get the pack of two that comes with the actually plastic container!

Once they are exposed to air, they will quickly loose all the moisture and dry out. The packaging itself doesn't do a very good job of keeping them sealed and protected. It would probably be best to put them in a closable container. What i do when they have dried out before, is run them under a little water, squeeze out the excess and use, not so much that it completely washes them out, but enough to get damp. They still remove any makeup.

Yes,and its so annoying! My walgreens, has the one in the container for like 8 bucks and it sells just one without the container for like 6 dollars and some change, but yeah its annoying. Even, when I keep it in the container it tends to open and dry up a bit, but not much. The product itself works great, just needs to fix the packaging.

Yes they do. I don't use this specific kind, I use Pond's, but they all dry out just as easily I think. Its just a matter of making sure once you open the package that you seal it closed tight. I learned that the hard way. I just bought a new package and then went to use it a few days later and they were all dried out :-( Needless to say I learned my lesson lol.

Yes, they dry out very easily. I kept mine in just the package that they came in and one day when I went to use them realized that I had left the top open and easily the 5 or 6 of them were completely dry and it had just been over night. I would recommend keeping them in Tupperwear or a sealed bag to keep them moist and fresh. *Side note: If one was just a little dry, I did find that you could just run some water over it and it would work just fine, but definitely not the completely dry ones.

I purchased the starter which has the blue container to keep them in. Works perfect. They never dry out when you use it. I will use the same wipe after removing my makeup to clean my brushes. I'll put it back in the container, on top of the refill package, and it won't dry out for days.
