Boots Cucumber Cleansing Wipes
Advantages: smell good, feel soothing on the skin
Disadvantages: flimsy packaging that can cause your wipes to dry out
When I find a product I like I cling to it stubbornly (hopefully, the great reviews on dooyoo might help me branch out!) One product I have been clinging on to are these Boots cucumber cleansing wipes which I use every day in the morning to freshen up and in the evening to remove my make up.
You can often pick these wipes up in boots on special offer. They usually sell three packs for three pounds. This suits me as I love the convenience of a wipe to take of my make up but don't like paying over the odds and have been known to use baby wipes if I cant get to boots because they are cheaper than fancy brands of cleansing wipes and do the job just fine. These wipes are by no means a luxury product but they are very cheap and a tad more luxurious than baby wipes due to the scent which I will mention later.
---- The packaging ----
Boots cleansing wipes have simple packaging for a simple product. The cucumber wipes come in a plain light green plastic packet. The opening for these wipes is a hole covered by an adhesive label. This is not ideal as the label sometimes looses its adhesive power before you run out of wipes. When your you cant get the label to stick your wipes can dry out making them less effective.
---- The product and the experience ---
Boots don't make any outlandish claims on the front of the packaging of this product in order to try and entice you they simply state that these are cucumber cleansing wipes for all skin types. Which indeed they are. However, the wipes are enriched with aloe vera and vitamin e.
As well as the cucumber version you can buy a fragrance free version. I have used the fragrance free wipes but went back to the cucumber version as I missed the fresh uplifting scent of the cucumber. The fragrance free wipes do perform the same though if you don't like the cucumber smell. I find the cucumber scent makes my make up bag smell good too.
The wipes have enough moisture in them to cleanse your face leaving your skin feeling fresh and clean. I have used these wipes to remove all of my make up including eye make up without any trouble. In saying that most of my make up has come off by itself at the end of the day so perhaps if you tend to apply a lot of eye make up you may want to use a specific oily eye make up remover to remove any stubborn mascara etc. These inexpensive little wipes couldn't deal with that challenge but then I have tried more expensive brand named wipes that couldn't either.
These wipes don't claim to be a three in one product they are simply a cleansing tool therefore, if you use toner and moisturiser you will need to do so separately. I find that these wipes leave my skin feeling soft and nourished.
--- Overall --
I would recommend these wipes as they are simple affordable. They smell good and do the job I want them to do. If you are looking for a luxury prestige product though, you might want to try something else.
Summary: affordable wipes that work.
