Asda Skin System Sensitive Cleaning Wipes
Advantages: I can't really think of any..
Disadvantages: Removing make-up with these is painful, doing anything else with them is ineffective.
I always use 'Simple' cleansing wipes on my face as they're the only ones I've found which do the job they're supposed to without irritating my extremely sensitive skin. However, when I recently ran out and went to my local Asda store to purchase another packet they were sold out and so I had to buy something else to make do with until I could go somewhere else to stock up on my usual wipes.
I bought these particular wipes for two reasons. Firstly, they were the only ones I could see on the shelf which stated they were suitable for sensitive skin. I really can't take any chances with these sort of products as my face seems to react with just about everything! If it doesn't say 'for sensitive skin' (or words to that effect) on the labelling, I won't purchase it. Secondly, they were only £1 and I didn't see the point in spending any more than this on wipes as they would more than likely end up in the bin or left somewhere and forgotten about once I had my favourite Simple wipes again.
These wipes come in packs of 30 so, for £1, they're reasonably cheap. They come in the usual rectangular thick plastic type packaging facial wipes tend to come in and contain the resealable sticker used to seal the packaging back up so the wipes don't dry out once opened. The packaging is basically what you see in the picture supplied by dooyoo, green and white with a product name and information printed on top. Nothing too fancy really but then, I don't suppose it needs to be really.
The wipes themselves are white in colour and rectangular in shape. They're pretty thin and you can easily see through them. They're not too wet or too dry, just nicely damp.
The wipes state that they cleanse, tone, moisturise and remove eye make-up and that they are fragrance, soap, colour and alcohol free. To help moisturise the skin these wipes contain avocado, pro-vitamin B5 and Aloe. They sound as though they should be pretty good! Unfortunately, this is not the case.
These wipes may be free from harmful chemicals but they also seem to be free of anything of any use really! The only way I can get these to remove my make-up, and I don't particularly wear a lot of it, is by continuously scrubbing away at my face which leaves it bright red and sore. Not a very nice look or feeling and my skin feel far from cleansed and moisturised after using these. In fact, it takes a good few hours for the skin on my face to calm down again after use. My skin feels quite rough and bumpy for a while and, whilst the wipes are rather soft, the sheer amount of scrubbing that is needed to remove anything from your skin seems to do more bad than good.
Still, I didn't write them off straight away and thought I'd give them ago as wipes without wanting them to remove make-up. So I used these before applying my usual cleanser, toner and moisturiser in the morning. The outcome of this wasn't quite so bad but still not particularly good either. I didn't feel and noticeable improvements in the softness of my skin after using these and it actually felt quite tight for a little while. The strangest thing of all was the slight tingling sensation I got in my face for a couple of seconds after using! That was a very strange feeling indeed, not particularly unpleasant and I've no idea what caused it but still, pretty weird. Using them just to quickly prep my face before going into my usual skin care routine was pretty pointless. While there were no real negative effects they were not positive ones either - the process just seemed useless really.
I ended up throwing these away, I didn't even see the point in keeping them as 'emergency' wipes as it was evident I would certainly never dream of using these again. I'm just glad I didn't pay more than a £1 for them!
Summary: Pretty rubbish facial wipes!
