POND'S Wet Cleansing Towelettes Review And Giveaway {Closed}

Contest Closed

A few weeks ago, I was asked to review the new POND'S Wet Cleansing Towelettes. I was sent the Original Clean Formula to test out. I was a little worried about testing them on myself because I have very sensitive skin and psoriasis around my hairline and on certain areas of my face, but it didn't turn out all that badly.

However, I think the
Age Defying version would have worked much better for me, as the Original Clean was a wee bit too drying. Or better yet, a formula made especially for sensitive skin. Unfortunately for moi, POND'S does not have a sensitive version available at this time.

Product details:

There are three formulations of POND'S Wet Cleansing Towelletes, Original Clean, Age Defying and Micro Dermabrasion. Unless you have extremely sensitive skin like me, I think you will be able to find a version that works well for you.

POND'S believes in their product so much, that they have instated a POND'S Superior Clean… Guaranteed! "warranty" that will reimburse you if POND'S Wet Cleansing Towelettes do not perform as promised. So what do you have to lose?

Go here for a $1.50 off coupon or enter my contest below for a free 30-count package of POND'S Wet Cleansing Towellettes ~ Original Clean Formula.

I did find some other interesting and unusual uses for the towelletes {Would you expect anything less from me?}...

I used them to clean my daughter's face and legs when I couldn't find the wipes {Kids get dirt in weird places sometimes} and they worked quite nicely! They did not irritate her at all, as so many other soaps do.

One day, we were running late for a family gathering, and noticed I seemed a wee bit, uh, ripe, shall we say? So I used the POND'S Wet Cleansing Towelettes to take a quick "sponge bath" and it worked very well. LOL I smelled fresh as a daisy when I jumped in that pool! I have also used them to clean The Diva's hands, get some strange stain out of her shirt and clean her leather sandals. I like things that are multitaskers.


My review...

Pros:
  • Convenient
  • Easy to use
  • Pleasant scent
  • Cleanses well
Cons:
  • The Original Clean Formula was a bit drying on my skin
  • The resealable package did not stay sealed well once the product was less than half full, so the towelettes dried out
  • POND's needs to come out with a formulation for sensitive skin.
Overall, I would recommend this product to everyone. Just make sure you get the correct formulation for your particular skin type. POND'S has been around forever {My Mom used to use the cream to remove her make-up} and is a widely trusted brand. The website states that POND'S Wet Cleansing Towelettes remove 40% more dirt and make-up than Olay's towelettes, according to a clinical study conducted in February, 2009.

The Contest:

POND'S has given me a package of their Original Clean Wet Cleansing Towelettes to give away to one lucky reader.
Woo Hoo!

I have learned that Pond's removes 40% more make up thatn other leading wipes. That certainly saves money since you don't have to use as many towelettes to get the job done properly!
