Kirkland Wipes and Ulta Event

I've been in search for makeup wipes for some time. The one makeup wipes I really like is GEO, but it's one expensive brand. I honestly believe when it comes to wipes, you can buy cheaper and it still will be good. That's just my opinion. :X I recently got a huge box from Costco and think it's about time I review it.
Product Review: Kirkland Daily Facial Cleansing Towelettes

Where can you purchase: Costco
Price: $11.49 for 150 6 X 8 in.

Made in USA

Description on the back: Daily Facial Cleansing Towelettes are the easiest, most effective way to get a complete skin care regimen. Use daily to deep clean skin and thoroughly remove make-up, dirt and impurities. Your skin is refreshed, while also nourished and moisturized. No rinsing necessary.
Ingredients:
My thoughts: I first saw this at my sister-in-law's vanity table, and was curious to know about it. My sister-in-law liked it enough that she bought another box from Costco. It intrigued my interest, because I know that I'm pretty bad with smell. She's worst than me! I cannot stand the smell of most of the makeup wipes. They all smell very flowery-like which I don't like. I'm more a fruity type of person. :)

After buying this from Costco, I was amazed at how many packages were inside!
There are four 30 counts resealable flip top lids. I like that it has a lid! Most wipes don't and I can see air going into the package without the lids if you don't close it well. With these lids, you cannot make a mistake or at least I think so.
There also two 15 counts travel packs. I like how the travel packs has less and weighs less so you can carry with you. I think it's a genius idea to put in the travel pack as well. :)

Now for the wipes, I think it's very well made. It's very sturdy! On the box, it says it's made with chamomile. Ahhh~ That makes sense because that's the flower I smell. It's not very strong fragrance which is a big plus to me! Most fragrances are so strong that I cannot endure it, and sometimes it stings. Yes, I am that sensitive. :P It cleans really well as well. :)

Pros:
* Pretty decent price.
* Comes with a lid.
* Travel pack.
* The wipes are well made.
* The fragrance isn't strong.
* Works well and removes makeup.

Cons:
* Flowery smell but it's light.

Would I repurchase: Yes.

This past Saturday my Ulta had an small event. Kym Johnson from "Dancing With the Stars" came to promote "Dancing With the Stars" hair pieces.
I knew she was going to be there and I went just to see how she looked in person. As soon as I enter Ulta, she was right there smiling at me. Everyone around her turned around to look at me. I didn't know what to do but go ahead and speak with her. :X She's so skinny and tall in person! I do have to say she is extremely sweet. :)

After speaking with her, couple of the girls who were with her put "Dancing With the Stars" hair piece on me. They told me to look around Ulta and when I came back, Kym Johnson was gone. :/ I asked the girls who did my hair if I should give it to them. They told me to keep it. How nice!!! :)
Here's the hair piece. It looks very natural and it's really shiny! I wanted to take a picture of it on my head, but  none of the pictures came out well.
I had one of my nieces, the fourth one, model it for me. I tied her hair in a bun and put the hair piece into the bun. It looked really good on her! :)
Of course, I had Tobey model it as well. :X He wasn't very happy. He tried to take the hair piece off with his paws. I told him I would give him a cracker if he modeled it. He would do anything for food! :)

Disclaimer: The products mentioned in this post are bought with my own money except for the hair piece. They gave it to me for free. I am not affiliated with any company nor getting paid to advertise any products. This post is written with my honest opinion.

Haha! I love that pic of Tobey. XD Your niece looks so cute with the hairpiece. That was so nice of them to give it to you. =D

I saw these wipes at Costco but I wasn't sure whether to get them or not so I bought the Neutrogena wipes instead since I've used them before. Thanks for the review!

(Hehe...yeah, it's a reality show so there is quite a bit of drama. ;) About the shoes, the prices vary depending on the style. I posted a link to the TOMS site which lists the prices. :)

the hair piece looks really natural :)

i also think all the wipes basically are similar and kirkland is a great brand. it was a bargain for 12 bucks! the hair extension is really cute on your niece. you should wear it =)

Diane said...

The Costco Kirkland makeup wipes are my absolute favorite wipes. I've been using them for years and have converted almost all my friends to them. Glad to hear you liked them.

Tobey is quite the model, he doesn't realize how good he looks =P

Shop N' Chomp said...

Yes, I plan on trying them after I'm done with the Neutrogena ones! =D

Actually I think Hautelook is doing well. I don't know the specific reason(s) but I imagine one of them is the increased popularity of flash sales. Buying them is an opportunity for Nordstrom to make even more money.

Bloglovin' is kinda like Google Connect where you follow the blogs you like. Here's some info if you're interested: http://www.bloglovin.com/en/about

Haha...I don't know if you meant it but you made me giggle. ;) I'm no Bloglovin' expert either. Still learning as I go. As far as I know, I had to create an account just to get the widget! :P

You did? B/c I can't tell. It looks like a really nice smokey eye to me. :D

I still have a couple of Neutrogena packs to use so it may be a while before I get to try the Kirkland ones. I hope it works for me! :)

Jennifer said...

omg tobey is so cute with the wig lol!!!!

i saw some reviews on their cashmere bronzer? people said it's a bit chalky...so i wonder if PF is a good brand :) The Happy booster range looks promising but i'm not sure about the others <3

Nic Nic said...

thanks for the shopping tips! I want to check that brand too! the hair on your dog is too funny XD but it looks great on your niece!

Diane said...

I have been using the Kirkland wipes for about 3-4 years and yes I use them everynight. I still use a cleanser afterwards, I'm just use to washing my face with a cleanser so no matter what makeup removers I use I still cleanse, tone, moisturize etc.

The only time I don't is if I come home late and tired from a night out, I just use the wipes. My husband was sick of hearing me ask every night "do you know where my makeup removers are?" so he started placing the packs all over our house, so now I have them in every room! LOL

I named you a Versatile Blogger on my blog http://laceysmiles84.blogspot.com/2011/02/versatile-blogger-award.html

Shop N' Chomp said...

Master? Oh no, that makes me nervous. The only master anyone should have is for martial arts. :)

I'm using the blue wipes. I've only seen this kind sold at Costco. I've never tried the purple ones before.

Jennifer said...

Which is the other blush from PF that you own ^_^? besides the happy booster one

haha maybe you can try putting new props on tobey for pictures, lol

♥Piper♥ said...

LOL @ Tobey w/ the hair.

Jennifer said...

lol i mean putting on sunglasses or funny wigs/hats on tobey, haha!!

items in the l'oreal swag bag (didn't know they're called swag bags, haha) included the foundation, one lipstick, 3 mascaras and an eyeshadow palette. I've already given away two of the mascaras (I used mine for the review :)), coz i have too many mascaras lol....

the event was hosted by a hk beauty blog and they invited 50 bloggers? so i signed up :) doesn't L'oreal have the same eyeshadow palette in the US? I thought they have this before coming out with the one-swipe palette thingy!

i am looking forward to try the PF Happy booster blush/powder tee hee!!!

Rinny said...

Hi Alheessa! Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment :D That's really cool that you got to meet Kym in person and receive a free gift from the promo! The hair piece looks really natural!

♥Piper♥ said...

I was at the dollar tree today and thought of you when I saw the makeup towelette wipes. They have two different kinds there. The exfoliating cloth kind with 30 in the pack, and the wipe kind with 40 in the pack, for only $1.00. that is a bargan but like most non-organic products the ingredients stink, lol. parabens and that.

Shop N' Chomp said...

Hi hi :) I don't think you would like the smell b/c it's pretty strong.

PinkOrchids said...

Lol cute dog! You spoke to Kim Kardashian?! She's sooo gorgeous!

DinaXYYan said...

Tobey's pic modeling the hair piece cracked me up! LOL

Tammy said...

I've been wanting to try those Kirkland wipes for a while, but I don't have a Costco card and getting one feels like a waste since it's only 2 of us in my house. Great review!

Tobey's pic really made me laugh!! What a cutie.

Sharon @ Fun and Life said...

I love that hairpiece, looks so natural! It's difficult to find good ones because they always look fake and tacky. But this one is gorgeous! And looks great on Tobey too LOL.
