Alright, so when I first saw these I was like I have to have them. I mean black wipes! Sayyyy whattt?! I got home and decided to use them right then and there. I opened up the package and they seriously are black! I was super curious as to if I would be able to see my makeup when wiping it off, and you can to a certain extent. Since I couldn't tell if these wipes were really taking off my makeup I did a little test. I used the Yes to Tomatoes wipes to take off my makeup and then I took my usual go to wipes (Aveeno ultra calming) and cleaned my face with those to see if any more makeup came off. And I am surprised and happy to say that I saw VERY little makeup after the second cleaning (like to the point that I couldn't tell if it was makeup or my imagination). To add to this I also bought these for the price! They are $5.99 for 30 wipes, and my Aveeno wipes are $7.49 (I think) for 25. So, I thought that was a great deal. The one and only thing that I don't like about these wipes is that they are pretty rough and scratchy. My face isn't as happy with the feeling of these as they are with my Aveeno wipes, but for the price I am going to continue buying them and deal with it!
