Soap & Glory The Fab Pore Facial Peel & Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths: Review

Disclaimer: Products featured were provided for review.
Hey guys, I hope you are all doing well! Today I have two skincare products from the beloved Soap & Glory. Available in Sephora in the US and Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada, Soap & Glory offers all types of yummy smelling and cutely packaged skincare and body products.
To read my reviews of The Fab Pore Facial Peel and the Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths, click.....
Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths ($10):
With 25 wipes per pack, the Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths promises to cleanse, tone, and exfoliate all in one go. It is infused with Soap & Glory's "Poreshrink RS Acid Free Exfoliator" which supposedly makes the pores appear smaller.
The lightly fragranced wipes are of standard size and are quite stretchy, I noticed that they aren't particularly textured so they don't give that exfoliating feel some of those specially designed wipes provide.
The wipe cleansed foundation and face makeup very well and was ok with eye colors as well but it didn't really remove waterproof mascara and only smudged gel eyeliners. However, I've never tried any cleansing wipe that could successfully tackle waterproof eye makeup so I won't hold that against these wipes.
Overall these are decent wipes but 25 per pack for $10 a pack is a bit too expensive in my opinion.
The Fab Pore 15 Minute Facial Peel ($25):
The Fab Pore Facial Peel is a mask/exfoliator dual that contains Fomes officinalis (a type of fungus) extract that helps tighten pores to reduce the appearance of their size. It also contains the pore unclogging salicylic acid and kaolin clay which helps absorb excess oil. The mask contains small green beads that disappear as you rub them into the skin, which provides some exfoliating properties. The mask has a subtle and refreshing fragrance and feels very nice on the skin.
The Fab Pore Facial Peel can be left on the face for five or fifteen minutes depending on your preference. It won't dry like a clay mask so it won't dry out the skin. However, I notice that when it's rinsed off, the mask leaves the face feeling like something was left behind on the skin. It's kind of hard to articulate but anyone who has tried the Proactive's Deep Refining Mask would know what I mean. The feeling eventually disappears but it's just that when you initially wash off the mask it doesn't feel like the product has been completely removed. But I reckon what's left behind is what makes the pores appear smaller. My skin looked more refined and supple and I definitely noticed that my pores appeared smaller.
Overall I love The Fab Pore Facial Peel and really enjoy rubbing the beads into my skin but the Cleansing Cloths for me is just a so-so.
