Asda Protect deep cleansing face wipes
Advantages: Remove makeup well, and clean my skin
Disadvantages: Overpowering smell, and a bit greasy
I don't have much of a skincare routine...in fact I'm pretty lucky in that department. I get the occasional spot (although they tend to last ages as I just won't leave them alone!), but that's about it, and I certainly look a lot younger than my 31 years.
One of the few things I do bother with is removing the crap (for want of a better word) from my face before bedtime. This is done simply and quickly with a cleansing wipe. It says on the packet to use them morning and night, but I don't bother in the morning as I wash my face when showering.
I believe that I must have bought about 4 packets of these Asda Protect Deep Cleansing Wipes when stocking up, as I seem to have been using them for absolutely ages. And quite frankly I can't wait to see the back of them as there are other cleansing wipes that I prefer.
---Asda Protect Deep Cleansing Wipes---
This pack of (dermatologically tested) 30 wipes comes in fairly simple white packaging made of plastic (not recyclable), similar to that for other cleansing wipes. It says that the product is safe for use up to 3 months after opening. I can't imagine anything bad happening after that time, although they probably go dry.
A pack currently costs £1, so that's 3.3p per wipe, which is quite reasonable (although my best cleansing wipes have been ones I've bought for half this in bargain shops), and you might even be able to get them for less.
---Using the Wipes, and what's in them etc---
One wipe comes out of the packet fairly easily (with some brands it's easy to take out two by mistake) and seals back afterwards. You will be struck by the smell (disinfectant-like) which is pretty strong for facial wipes...and personally I find it a bit overpowering (and it reminds me of awful experiences as a child of my mother chasing me with wet wipes), one of the main reasons why I don't like these wipes.
These Asda wipes are certainly moist, which is useful (even towards the end of the packet), and when wiping over my face and neck, my day's make up does come off easily. I'm left with a very orange-coloured wipe (I love my foundation!) which I'm pleased to throw away (these are not meant to be flushed).
These wipes do work, even when I've been wearing mascara (although sometimes it does take a bit more effort to get it off), and my face does feel clean, if ever so slightly greasy. Unfortunately my face is left smelling of disinfectant, and while I have come to live with it (and don't feel the need to wash my face afterwards), it's not great and I wouldn't say I feel refreshed as the pack says I am meant to.
I have been using these wipes for months now, and I would say that my skin is just the same as it is usually (but then it wasn't bad before). These wipes particularly have "targeted action to remove dirt, oil and impurities without clogging pores", and I do feel that they clean my face. Perhaps if I was prone to lots of spots before then I would have noticed something amazing as these wipes are designed to prevent spots (I still have the odd occasional spot as usual). There is a great long list of ingredients (which you might want to check) in them, but they are suitable for vegetarians. The pack does advise to avoid direct contact with eyes, but that they are not "for intimate hygiene use" (I'm not sure why anyone would!)
The packaging does say that Asda will refund and replace if you're not 100% happy. Perhaps I should have done that rather than working my way through all of my packs. However, I think that me not liking this product is simply down to personal preference. They do work as cleansing wipes, but feel a bit greasy, and the smell is strong.
Other people might like them more, but for me I'm down to my last few wipes and looking forward to opening a pack of something new. 2 out of 5 stars from me.
Summary: You might like them, but I don't!
