Micellar Water Wipes? Yes or no?

 
Micellar water has been a big thing in the blogger world for a good year or so now, but have you ever heard of micellar water wipes? Could they be just as good, and much better for your skin than regular face wipes?
 
I purchased some of the above micellar water wipes a couple of months ago now out of pure curiosity. I have been using them on and off, switching between these and my regular Soap & Glory micellar solution. 
 
They claim to be "ultra-gentle face and eye make-up cleansing wipes" for "sensitive skin." They are also said to be "hypoallergenic, alcohol free and dermatologically approved."
 
On first impressions something that immediately striked me was the smell, kind of chemical-like, and how this would go with my sensitive skin. I wasn't expecting this at all due to the product said to be both hypoallergenic and fragrance free. I don't know if it was just the fact that the wipes were enclosed but I sure didn't like the idea of putting them near my face. I felt like my eyes were slightly stinging.
As to doing their job though, they did this perfectly. They removed every trace of my makeup when used without fail.

So, what do I think overall? Brilliant idea but I definitely don't think they're for me. Even if they are hypoallergenic and fragrance free the fact that I could smell something completely put me off. I won't be purchasing them again unfortunately.
Sorry for the slightly negative review but I thought it's only fair I share my honest opinions, obviously yours could be completely different.
What do you think of the idea of micellar water wipes? Is it something you've tried before?
