“ Brand: Asda / Type: Cleansing Wipes / Suitable for: Face / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types / What it does: Cleanses / Product line: Asda Skin System „
I had never used any Asda Skin System facial products before when I purchased these but I decided to give them a go as I needed some face wipes and there wasn't any others on offer and these were priced at only £1 for 25 wipes. There are three different kinds of face wipes to choose from, ones for sensitive skin, dry and lastly normal/combination skin.
I purchased the normal/combination pack as this is the most suitable for my skin. I have however tried the sensitive ones which I will write a review for also.
The design of the packets have changed recently and so they do not look like they do in the image above. When I first purchased a pack it was pink and the wipes themselves were scented. The scent was a lovely girly floral scent however I won't write about this too much as Asda have now changed them and they are no longer scented, no matter which packet you opt for. This is quite unfortunate as I did like the scent.
The packet is now white and lilac with a sticky lid that peels off to allow you to get a wipe out, then sticks back down to keep the rest of them moist until you use them again. I am glad to say that the sticky lid does actually work and doesn't come off drying the wipes out, and the longest I have had a packet of these wipes for was almost 2 months. I know a lot of cheap facial wipes can dry out easily as the packaging isn't very good.
On the packet is states these wipes:
Removes make-up and impurities
Refreshing and revitalising formula helps leave skin feeling soft and hydrated
Contains skin energising vitamins and minerals.
I only use facial wipes to remove make-up when in a hurry or if I simple cannot be bothered to cleane, tone and moisturise with my bottled stuff that usually takes longer to do.
These wipes do an excellent job at removing make-up. However, when using them the wipes they feel very thin and like they will tear apart easily if not gentle. I cannot be gentle when removing my eye make-up otherwise there will still be traces of it left over and when I wake up in the morning and I will just have to remove it again. They haven't actually torn for me when using them but in comparison to other wipes I have used there is a major difference that I notice straight away when using them. These may not be very good for someone who wears quite a lot of make-up, as they might end up having to use more than 1 wipe.
They also leave my skin feeling refreshed but only for a few minutes after use. After this time I feel like my skin is quite dry and so I always apply a moisturiser after.
Overall these wipes are good for removing my make-up which is the main reason why I use these. I would not use these to simply cleanse, tone and moisturise as they are not very good for that. If no other facial wipes are on offer at the time then I will certainly buy these again for £1!
The Asda Skin Repair wipes are one of my favourite skincare wipes. I was reluctant at first to purchase them because they were Asda's own. I don't tend to go for cheap products as far as my skins concerned as I usually have found the cheaper products to be foul and as far as wipes are concerned usually quite harsh on my skin.
Despite this due to using several cleansing wipes a day! Yes a slight obsession, it was costing me an arm and a leg to keep purchasing them. I usually use one whilst applying make-up so I can remove any eyeliner I have smudged ( this is something I can never get right the first time. And also I use it to give my brushes a quick wipe before I next wash them. Then of course I use them to remove my make-up. So I can easily use three a day. Which doesn't seem a lot I guess but when you use them every day of the week I guess the pack could only last me a week and a few days! So I had to opt for a cheaper brand.
The Asda Skin System Face 4 in 1 wipes come in a pack of 30. This is a good amount of wipes because although I use a lot it is much easier carrying a pack of 30 than a pack of 64.
The price of the wipes are only £1.00 making the wipes approximately 3.3p per wipe. You really cannot go wrong with this price. They are incredibly cheap in comparison to other cleansing wipes on the market.
The cleansing wipes come in a baby pink packet. It states on the front that it is " Fragranced". I don't usually tend to like fragranced cleansing wipes but I was so pleasantly surprised at how lovely these wipes smell! When I have gave a cleansing wipe to friends and they have always commented on how wonderful they smell.
To say the wet wipes are cheap they do come in fairly attractive packaging, even more so than the Boots own brand cleansing wipes which are more expensive.
Do they cleanse the skin well?
100 per cent! These wipes are just as good as ones I have used in the past that are a lot more expensive. They remove every inch of make-up. I have tested this by using a white muslin cloth with liz Earle cleanser, to test if it had left any make-up on. The muslin cloth was still white! I have tried this method before with other wipes and I have been left feeling extremely disappointed with how much make-up has been left on the cloth.
Are the wet wipes harsh?
No they are extremely gentle on the skin. I was surprised at this too, as I have used cheap wipes before and they have really left my sensitive skin feeling really sore. These wipes have no effective on my skin at all, it cleanses the skin well and leaves it feeling smooth.
Overall, these are now my favourite cleansing wipes! For the price they are exceptional. If they were a little more I would still buy them because they do a really good job at removing my make-up. 5/5
I use facial wipes every day as I find them so handy, versatile and quick and easy to use. I rarely stick to just the one brand (though perhaps I do slightly favour Johnson's wipe) but I tend to chop and change which ones I buy according to which ones are on special offer.
I recently bought some Asda Skin System Face 4-in-1 Facial Wipes. A pack of thirty three wipes cost me £1.00 which I thought was really reasonable. They are housed in the usual little plastic container with a seal over the top to protect the contents inside. Once you remove a wipe, simple reseal them and they will stay nice and moist - though by the end of the pack the seal was beginning to lose its tackiness.
The packaging is fairly feminine in pinks and whites and probably marketed towards us ladies rather than being a unisex product. The wipes themselves are nice and thick and do not feel at all flimsy. Each wipe measures approximately 18cm x 16cm (I'm guessing here) and feels nice and strong and is fragranced with a delicate floral / rose kind of perfume which I actually quite liked.
I use two wipes to clean my face - one for my eyes and the other for the rest of my face and neck.. I am pleased to report that the wipes effectively removed all traces of make up from my face, even my waterproof mascara. The packaging boasts that these wipes contain vitamin E and pro-vitmin B5 (which is apparently good for my skin). They are also alcohol free and felt nice and refreshing against my skin. I always splash my skin with cold water after I have used facial wipes as I tend not to like the feeling facial wipes leave on my skin and sometimes I think they can leave me feeling slightly 'icky'.
Do I recommend them? I have to say I do. For thirty-three wipes I think these are actually great value for money and I would certainly buy them again. They freshen my skin and make it feel gently cleansed and not sticky or tight. They remove waterproof eye make up (mascara in my case) as wel as gently and effectively removing al of my foundation and blusher. Alongside this, I love the delicate fragrance they have and don't find it too overpowering at all.
Great product and I can recommend them - 4 stars from me.

I bought this while browsing the isles in asda for a good make up remover. I thought i would try something different by buying asda's own brand which i don't usually do but the packet looked good and it looked like it would do a good job. The wipes come in a cute packet where the wipes are easy to remove however if you don't shut the top properly the wipes dry out which is really annoying. The wipes are very cheap and that's always good.
When applied the wipes give you a refreshing burst of energy and cool the face if hot and they actually do the job and remove all makeup on face. What's even more impressive is it removes even a few coats of mascara in only one wipe which is amazing. This may sound quite good but i noticed when i started to use the wipes i started to break out quite a bit and when i stopped using it the breakouts stopped so i defiantly would not recommend this too those with acne prone skin as you will break out. The one thing i will say about these is that they cause an imbalance in the ph of your skin which irritates the skin so i wouldn't recommend this to anyone as even i don't use it and instead i would suggest a liquid make up remover which is the much better option.
I do my food shopping in Asda quite frequently, and when I'm shopping around, I will sometimes throw in some own brand essentials as opposed to buying branded versions if they are not on offer. I tried out these Asda Skin System Face 4 in 1 Facial Wipes simply because I often get through make up wipes quite quickly, and I just kept these to the side in case I would need some urgently upon running out.
As you can see, they are not the most attractive of packaging, but when I keep my wipes stored at home, does it really matter what they look like? No one is going to see them, so this is not a big deal to me that it has cheap and plain packaging. Within the pack you get 33 wipes which is a reasonable amount to some that branded wipes offer, and these retail for a mere £1.00 so you can't really go wrong.
For an own brand product they seem quite appealing as they are 4 in 1. Asda claim that these wipes cleanse, tone and moisturise all in one, as well as removing make up efficiently. These wipes also contain provitamins B and E to help condition the skin well.
To use these wipes you simply have to peel open the cover and pull out one wipe. The first thing I noticed is that the wipes are very moist, and I felt that this would contribute to there effectiveness, as drier wipes usually are no good. The wipes themselves are white in colour and a little bumpy, which I assume is to help dig in and get make up out from your pores. To use you simply have to wipe it all across your face, and I do this once a day of the night to help take off all of my make up before I go to bed.
Once applied to the skin, they were quite wet, but it was rather refreshing, and I could tell they were removing my make up. However, compared to many other make up wipes I have used in the past, I did notice that I needed to scrub quite a bit harder with these wipes to ensure it was all off. As I use a waterproof mascara, I do find that getting off my eye make up can be a little time consuming with these wipes, but if you are only going to pay £1.00 for them I was not expecting the best quality in the world.
Although a little tedious, these make up wipes do actually remove all of your make up which I was impressed with. One thing I must note is that if you suffer from quite sensitive skin, despite these make up wipes being aimed at all skin types, I do sometimes get a slight burning sensation after use and my skin is not even particularly sensitive, so I would steer clear of these if you are one of these people!
Overall, a pretty basic but usable make up wipe. Not particularly useful for moisturising properties, and I would much rather get a skin regime going on, but for cheap make up wipes it's worth a shot. Thank you for reading.
As you are no doubt aware, I am a huge fan of facial wipes, particularly as they are so easy to use and perfect for those times when I need to quickly freshen my skin. Over the months I have reviewed quite a few brands, as I cannot state that I am particularly loyal to any one and tend to purchase whatever's on offer at any given time. One of the brands I have been using is Asda's Skin System: Face and this review discusses my experience with using them.
APPEARANCE OF THE PRODUCT
The wipes are presented to us in girly pink and white thick plastic packaging, so Asda are clearly marketing this product only at women, which is a huge mistake, particularly as men also favour using facial wipes. One thing I've noticed with Asda unlike any other supermarkets is that they change the colour of their familiar logo dependent upon the product they are selling and on this occasion it is bright pink. We are advised that the wipes are suitable for all skin types and that they are classed as "4 in 1" with their active ingredients of pro-vitamin B5 and vitamin E. What I found rather strange is that the pack contains only 33 wipes, which is something I've never experienced with any other brand.
USING THE WIPES
As with all products of this nature there is a seal on the upper section that needs pulling back to reveal a small opening for the wipes to be removed. However, the adhesive is very poor and after being opened only a few times it was failing to efficiently close, so it was necessary to place the entire pack into a plastic lidded container. The white coloured wipes offer a woven appearance and are of a reasonable thickness and size with their measurements of 19 cm x 16 cm. We are advised the wipes are soap, colour and alcohol free, which is a little strange, particularly as the words "cetearyl alcohol" are clearly listed in the ingredients.
Whilst there is no information on the packaging relating to the fragrance I would advise that they offer a very delicate clean aroma, which can only be described as slightly floral. Although the aroma is very favourable, unfortunately, it lingered a little too long on my skin, which I found rather disappointing. The moisture content is not overly so and one wipe was sufficient for me to freshen my entire face and effectively remove my make-up. A real negative for me with facial wipes is when they are too wet and my skin takes ages to dry afterwards, but fortunately, this was not the case with these wipes.
As I do not wear waterproof mascara I am unable to advise if they are powerful enough for its' removal, but I would guess them not to be, as otherwise Asda would have stated this on the packaging. Whilst my skin felt beautifully clean and fresh I cannot confirm that it felt moisturised and in fact, the skin around my nose, cheeks and chin always felt a little tight after use. Consequently, it was necessary to apply a good moisturiser. However, I cannot state that I have ever experienced any dryness or irritation when using.
INGREDIENTS AND OTHER INFORMATION
I was quite surprised to see an extremely lengthy list of ingredients; one of which is castor oil and for obvious reasons I do not intend copying them into this review. As I very rarely shop at Asda I was interested to learn that they are against animal testing. Unfortunately, neither the wipes nor packaging are recyclable, so they need to be placed with normal household rubbish. The wipes should be used within 3 months of opening. If you are familiar with Asda's own products you will be aware that they offer a "Try Me, Love Me" policy where they will refund and replace the product if you are not 100% happy.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
Asda Skin System: Facial Wipes are available in all Asda stores and will cost you £1 for a pack of 33. As for rating these wipes, they lose two stars from me due to the fact that they tighten my skin and the aroma lingers far too long and for these reasons it is very doubtful that I will repurchase.
I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
