“ Brand: Boots / Type: Cleansing Wipes / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types / What it does: Cleanses / Product line: Boots No7 „
I have always used wipes to cleanse my face and these No 7 Quick Thinking 4 in 1 wipes are definitely my favourite. The full retail price is £7 but I have never actually paid this for them and I think that this is very expensive for a product like this. I buy a lot of toiletries from Boots so tend to get quite a few of the £5 vouchers which enables me to buy them for £2 which is far more reasonable and I find that I usually get enough of these vouchers for me never to run out of them.
There are thirty wipes in the pack which is a plastic packet with a lid similar to baby wipes which you open to remove the wipes and then click back to secure the packet. I have always found them to clip back very securely and I have never experienced them not closing properly or the wipes drying out. The wipes themselves are quite thick and strong and feel moist to the touch but not too wet to be uncomfortable or messy to use. They don't really smell of anything apart from maybe a bit fresh and they are hypo-allergenic so are suitable for most skin types. It is easy to remove one wipe at a time which makes them more economical as they last longer when you only use one at a time. I have always found that one wipe is plenty to remove all my make up even if I have gone out in the evening and have been wearing full make up. They really do remove waterproof mascara and this is sometimes what I wear and I find that I don't really have to rub too hard to remove it.
They contain pro-vitamin B and extracts of witch hazel and fennel and feel very soft and gentle on my skin. They do feel moist and cool when I am using them and I am happy that they are very gentle and not abrasive in any way. I will start off first wiping round my face all the way to my hair and jawline, then I will gently wipe down to my neck. Lastly I will wipe over my eyes which takes the longest as mascara is the hardest to remove, however with several sweeps to my upper and lower eyelashes is usually sufficient to remove all traces of my mascara.
As described in the name of the wipes they are 4 in 1 and actually cleanse, tone, remove your make up and moisturise which I find that they actually do, however I do also apply a night cream when I go to bed, as I like to look after my skin and feel that by applying cream just before going to bed it will sink into my skin overnight. I will also occasionally also use a toner but these wipes are great for a quick and simple cleansing routine if this is all you have time for as they do everything you need.
These wipes are great for every day but particularly when you go on holiday as they don't take up too much space or weight and are easy to transport as they won't leak or split like a bottle of cleanser or moisturiser can. I find that they always remove my make up and leave my skin feeling soft and smooth and I have never experienced any soreness or irritation with them. Boots recommend that you don't flush them away but I think that this is the same for most wipes and I will just put them in the bathroom bin when I have finished. I recommend these wipes especially at £2 and I will continue to use them as they are soft and gentle and remove my make up with minimum effort.
Before children came along, I was very fussy over my make up and skin care products and would only ever consider No 7 products, obviously that all changed when Lauren came along and we had to become a little more thrifty! One product I always used to ensure I had a stash of was these wipes, although I didn't use them everyday, I liked to have them for overnight travels, holidays or just those nights when I 'couldn't be bothered' with the whole cleansing, toning etc.
According to Boots, the wipes will remove all traces of makeup, including waterproof mascara. In my opinion, they do remove my makeup with just a few sweeps over my face, but I then feel like I have to use another wipe to cleanse etc thoroughly. The wipes have quite a luxurious feel to them as they are really quite thick and soft to touch, I could imagine it would take a lot to tear them. I can really tell the different in how soft the wipes are compared to some other versions I have used in the past. After using the wipes, I must admit that my skin did feel nice and soft and I possibly could have got away without using any moisturiser, whilst this is a bonus, to be honest, I would always add my own moisturiser afterward anyway.
As I have got older, I seem to have developed skin which is prone to spots, especially if I don't remove all my makeup every evening, when I use these, it proved that they did a good job as I didn't experience any 'breakouts'. As with most No 7 products, these wipes are hypo allergenic and suitable for all skin types.
The wipes comes in a small plastic pack (a bit similar to a pack of baby wipes, but just half the length) and it has a plastic lid which closes securely after removing a wipe. I found the lid really effective at ensuring that the wipes stay moist by keeping the pack airtight. Taking the wipes from the pack is really easy too, only one seems to come out at a time so I don't end up wasting any or trying to stuff them back into the pack.
The wipes retails for £7 (or 700 points) for a pack of 30 wipes and are available in Boots, both online and in store. You can also pick them up on EBay and Amazon. Boots tend to run a lot of promotions on the No 7 range such as 3 for 2 or buy one get one half price, even better, running alongside this; you can sometimes use a £5 off No 7 voucher (sometimes given out when you spend more than £5 in store). I find the retail price a little steep and I would never pay this for them, I used to buy when I had a £5 off No 7 voucher so they only cost me £2, I feel this is a lot more reasonable but after discovering cheaper brands on the market where the wipes costs around 2p each, I don't think I will be returning back to these I am afraid.
Overall, the wipes are good, buy I wouldn't say that they warrant the expensive price tag, especially when you compare to similar products out there and for that reason, I would only give 3 out of 5 stars.
Thanks for reading.
When it comes to taking your makeup off quickly and efficiently then these wipes are perfect. I needed some wipes recently for when I went away for the weekend and knew I wouldn't have as much time as I normally do to cleanse, tone and moisturise so I thought some wipes would be a really good idea.
Boots No7 Quick Thinking 4 in 1 Wipes are use-once wipes which promise to remove make-up, cleanse, tone and moisturise the skin. This is exactly what I was looking for as I wanted them to do a bit more than just take off my make up, I also wanted them to be good for my skin too so I was happy to use them. I bought them with a £5 Number 7 voucher I had received which meant I only had to pay £2 instead of £7. To be honest I don't think I would have paid £7 as I think that is quite pricey for a pack of wipes, especially considering there are only 30 wipes in the pack.
The wipes come in a really handy pack, much like a pack of baby wipes but these have a nice plastic close at the top so you can click this shut and the wipes stay nice and fresh, even the one on top.
The wipes are slightly moist and fairly thick so when you do rub them across your face, paying special attention to taking off my eye make up they don't tear or irritate my face in any way, in fact I find these wipes quite gentle and was quite pleased the first time I used them at how soft my face felt afterwards. They worked really well at taking my eye make up off, I didn't really need to rub too hard which was nice to take it all off. I also felt like my face was definitely fresh and clean and almost the same as if I had washed it with water and then used a toner afterwards.
There's no smell to the wipes which I think is nice as I don't really want a medicated or harsh smell on my face. I think in conclusion these are not something I would use all the time as they are a bit expensive and I would only really need to use them when I don't have time or access to water but as a solution every now and again they are great.
**Price and Availability**
Boots No7 Quick Thinking 4 in 1 Wipes currently retail at £7, however like most canny shoppers I only purchase them when I am given a till-spit (a voucher you get when you make a purchase, usually £10 or over, on other items) for £5 off a no7 product with no minimum spend. This brings the price of Boots No7 Quick Thinking 4 in 1 Wipes down to a bargain £2.
The wipes are available only in Boots and generally larger Boots which stock the full no7 range. You can buy them on Boots.com and either pay a delivery charge, or click and collect to any local Boots whatever the size, however there is a £20 minimum spend to do this so you would need to add the wipes to a larger order. Given you can get them so cheaply with the voucher instore, I always buy instore and only with the voucher.
**So what are they?**
Boots No7 Quick Thinking 4 in 1 Wipes are use-once wipes which promise to remove make-up, cleanse, tone and moisturise the skin. Perfect for ladies on the go, or, like me, shattered mummies!
I like the packaging for Boots No7 Quick Thinking 4 in 1 Wipes a lot, they really break off from the safe colour palette of the no7 skincare range and are presented in a lovely vibrant turquoise packet. The dispenser is good, too, not just a Huggies Wipes style tab (which invariably never sticks back down leaving the wipes to go dry) but a plastic lid-type dispenser which keeps the wipes lovely and wet. I hate dry wipes!
The Boots No7 Quick Thinking 4 in 1 Wipes are about the size of a regular baby wipe, but much softer like cotton and ever so slightly dimpled which helps you remove make-up. There is no scent to them, they are unfragranced and hypoallergenic, but they do still have a light scent of 'clean', if that makes sense.
Make-Up Removal - I use a light amount of make up day to day, sometimes no make up, but on the days I do wear it, it's a little tinted moisturiser, under eye concealer, a bit of lip tint and some eyeliner and mascara. The Boots No7 Quick Thinking 4 in 1 Wipes remove this absolutely no problem.
For heavier make up (only when I have been to a special occasion!!) it removes foundation, waterproof mascara and lip liner no problems but you do need to put a teeny bit of elbow grease into it. That said, one wipe is always sufficient, I've never needed to use two.
Cleansing - I do feel that the skin is cleansed at the same time as the make-up is removed - it is left feeling clean and refreshed.
Toning - The skin is left 'balanced', even on combination skin like mine. Many people like myself have a slightly oilier T-Zone, though I am not prone to spots. The Boots No7 Quick Thinking 4 in 1 Wipes do leave the skin feeling even.
Moisturising - If I am going out I tend to still moisturise after using a Boots No7 Quick Thinking 4 in 1 Wipes, however, if I am taking my make-up off before bed, I don't need to, which proves that they provide sufficient moisturising without being greasy or sticky.
After you have used the wipe you must put it in the bin - you can't flush it!
Overall, I do recommend the Boots No7 Quick Thinking 4 in 1 Wipes. They genuinely do provide 4 features in 1 easy to use wipe, and for busy people, tired mums (or if you just can't be bothered with individual cleanse-tone routines, or don't have the room for all the bottles), then Boots No7 Quick Thinking 4 in 1 Wipes are just the ticket. I don't know if I'd pay £7 for them, not because they're not worth it, but because I stock up at £2 (when Boots do the £5 voucher offer I buy nappies and wipes and so on, get a few vouchers, and spend the vouchers on wipes, nifty eh!)
I do think that whatever your lifestyle and skin type, Boots No7 Quick Thinking 4 in 1 Wipes may well suit you and if you can get them on offer then certainly, give them a try, you may become addicted ;)
No7 Quick Thinking Wipes, a part of my mum's No.7 collection that she decided to dump on me during a clear out. Facial wipes are not something that I normally use, so this found its way to my bathroom cupboard along with a hoard of other products I rarely use, until a couple of months ago, when I was going through a clear out of my own and decided to give these a go.
The wipes come in a blur coloured plastic 'package' with a hard plastic flip-top lid. Easy to open and close, the hard lid ensures that the moisture from the wipes doesn't easily escape. So, when I first started using them the wipes they were drier than I expected, because they had been in the cupboard for a while, but not completely. They still had enough moisture to remove facial make-up like blush and eye shadow. For a deeper cleanse, I wet the wipes, just a few drops of water, and found that the wipes came in very handy when removing eyeliner, so long as I tried cleaning in between each eyelash, the eyeliner came out better than any other product I have used to remove eye liner.
Again, if wearing foundation, and the wipes are not wet enough, just a few drops of water on the wipe will help clean it away. The wipe already comes with some kind of soapy substance in it that makes a facial clean with the wipe almost as good as having a face wash. The other thing I found, was that the wipe was somewhat moisturising, it did not leave my skin feeling dry or tight after use, but I still used my usual facial moisturiser after wiping my face, to make my skin even softer.
If you have smelt any No7 moisturisers, then the scent of the wipe will be familiar, it just smells like an un-fragranced moisturiser, ever so slightly sweet. The wipe itself is very soft and gentle on my skin, I have used it a number of times now, and it has not irritated my skin or caused it to itch. One pack contains around 30 wipes, so if you use it every day, it will last you a month. Usually after I've used one, and it has bit more life left in it, then I use it to wipe away the odd specks of toothpaste here and there around the sink, that way I make sure it is well used before throwing in the bin. It is a bit on the expensive side at around £7, so if I can find wipes that work equally well and don't cost a fortune then I would go for the cheaper version. I would only buy this if I had a voucher, as good as it is, it ain't worth spending that much money!
I love no7 products. I mostly buy them when I have the £5 vouchers off the price of an item because it does save lots of money and a way of trying items that I have not tried before. When I do have a voucher and purchase an item, I often receive another voucher to use and so I go around in circles buying either items that are my favourite to stock up or new ones to try. These wipes are the ones I had bought last year with my voucher and recently used to last wipe.
They come in a plastic wrapper which has a flip lid which clips into back into place to keep the wipes nice and moist. There are 30 wipes in the pack and are priced at £7, I think for this amount of wipes it is a little expensive. Especially for wipes you may want to buy and try to see if they are suitable, for this reason of the price, I bought them using the voucher and so they were then only £2.
Each wipe is a thick, white very moist wipe, they are not a flimsy one and these are really nice to comfortably hold in the hands to gently wipe over the area to be cleansed. They feel soft against the skin while gently rubbing on the skin and they are so soft. They are a good quality too and hold the moisture well without them being dripping wet as I have found some other brands to tend to be with the dripping effect. These just hold moisture well into each wipe.
They have no fragrance and I have used them to remove make up. I find they do remove make up from around my face really well but I find they do not remove mascara so well as I thought they would for the price. They are quite pricey and I thought because of this high price they would remove mascara much better. I found that I would have needed to keep on rubbing my lashes to remove the mascara completely and so I stopped using them for days when I wanted to remove my mascara and just used some different wipes and my cleansing lotion. They are suitable for removing eye shadow and foundations. Also for just refreshing the skin to help the face feel more refreshed during the day etc.
They are quick and easy to sweep across the skin, they feel beautifully soft against the skin and not rough. They don't tear while using them as some other brands. These ones are really strong wipes that hold the moisture well. I find the clip down top ideal for helping to keep the wipes moist for longer and so they don't dry out while in the packaging.
These wipes are suitable for all skin types, I have sensitive, dry skin and they are suitable for my skin. They contain pro vitamin B5 to help soften and moisturise the skin and also contains witch hazel and fennel to help clear pores, to also help keep the skin fresh and soft.
They are 4 in 1 wipes, so they are designed to cleanse, tone, remove make up, especially waterproof mascara and to also moisturise the skin. I have found they do all of these but not too good for removing the mascara. I usually always use a waterproof mascara, and when I used them to remove this waterproof mascara, I found they didn't give the results that I expected because it did state for water proof. For this reason I am dropping a star. I did expect them to remove mascara and for the price, I didn't expect miracles but did expect good results since they are not cheap wipes.
I would recommend these wipes and I would only buy them again in the future only using a voucher with the £5 off the original price, because then they are only costing £2. I have used all my wipes and been happy with the results. I think they are a little more expensive but for the work they actually do for the skin and the 4 in 1 routine for lazy days I think the price is not so bad. Means if you are in a hurry and don't have time to do a full facial routine, these will help cleanse the skin very well in my opinion. I do love this range of wipes from the no 7 range.
I give these 4 stars.

Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
I had a Boots No 7 £5 voucher the other week and was looking around the shelves trying to figure out how best to spend it. I don't normally purchase anything from Boots No 7 and to be honest there wasn't really anything I fancied. Everything seemed a little too pricey for what it was. I finally settled on a pack of facial wipes (Quick Thinking Wipes) and they cost £7 so I only had an extra £2 to pay towards them, which wasn't too bad. Not having had these facial wipes before, I wasn't too sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised when I did try them out to remove my make up.
I quite like the packaging on these wipes, which is different to my usual brand of Johnson's Face Wipes. These Boots wipes have a sort of sturdy little clip down / lift off lid, rather than a simple plastic seal you see so often now. This type of lid helps to keep the wipes fresher and moist for longer and I quite like it. The wipes are still housed within a plastic soft pouch, just like my Johnson's wipes are - the only difference in the packaging (apart from the pack being blue) is the design of the lid.
The wipes themselves are large and strong and yet feel soft and very gentle on my face. I wear a full face of make up during the day for work and I have to use two of these wipes before all traces are removed. This is also the case with my normal Johnson's wipes, however, so there is no difference in that respect.
These wipes actually feel thicker than my normal Johnson's wipes and I think I prefer the texture of them. Also, they are not heavily perfumed and I am able to use them around the sensitive eye area without any adverse effects. They remove all of my make up very well, including my heavily made up eyes (with several coats of mascara). I don't find I have to pull or tug at my eyelashes in order for the make up to come off.
The wipes are incredibly moist and they feel really fresh and gorgeous against my skin. I use them all over my face, including the entire neck area and although they are very effective at removing all traces of the day's make up, I don't feel that they are too strong or powerful to the extent that they sting my skin or cause me any discomfort at all.
Overall, I do have to say I have been pleasantly surprised with these wipes. However, weighing everything up, I still feel that £7 per pack is a little bit on the expensive side and for now I will stick with my usual brand, unless I receive another £5 voucher for No 7.
~Quick thinking wipes from No7?~
I have often bought these No7 Quick Thinking 4 in 1 Wipes from Boots in the past and found them to be of a nice thickness and texture that makes them strong and durable, yet soft enough to use on facial skin when required. I am still getting through my last pack of wipes which have lasted quite some time and whilst I feel the quality of these is quite good, I am rather miffed at the hike in prices these wipes have had in recent times. Boots often have £5 off voucher promotions whereby the vouchers can be used against any No7 purchase, which is very often how I ended up with a pack or two of these Quick Thinking wipes as they were handy to put away for later use.
The wipes used to be £5 per pack, or free with a £5 voucher, however in recent times prices have been put up to £7 per pack, which I feel is rather high for a simple pack of mid range facial cleansing wipes. This price hike has put me off buying these wipes as I feel that you can buy cheaper, yet comparable wipes (in terms of quality) in many rival stores for less money. I have used these wipes to clean off make up, refresh my skin, clean my hands and generally freshen up as and when wanted and found the wipes are always softly scented, smooth on the skin and easy to use. What a shame they are now priced so high at £7.
The packs that the wipes are held in is designed so as to manage to keep the wipes fresh and moist for long periods of time, even when the pack has been open for a few weeks. The almost cubed shaped pack can be stored away when not in use even when the seal has been broken, as there is a plastic close down lid that sits across the access point (which is also covered with a sticky label). This plastic lid generally works well although in my opinion it can get caught on things when put away and can end up coming away from the main body of the container sometimes. This can be a little inconvenient as the wipes dry up much quicker when not correctly sealed.
The wipes can help to cleanse off any unwanted make up and work well enough when used for this purpose. They can also help to add a little moisture to the skin, which I have found can help to stop it drying out too much when I have been out in the sun, or when the weather is windy and cold. The wipes can be used when toning the skin (on their own if wanted) although I have found they work well when using a little separate toner along with them, which I feel gives skin an added boost. The thickness of the wipes ensures that you only need one wipe to remove a full days make up, which cuts down on the number of wipes used.
I have never had any problems with major reactions to the skin when using these wipes which is a positive point in my opinion, although I have noticed that if I use these after having exfoliated my skin they can very rarely sting the skin a little which isn't very nice for a few moments. Other than that I have found the wipes to be very gentle on facial skin. My rating for the wipes is 3 stars based both on the price, which has become a little too high of late in my opinion and functionality, which I feel is good in most situations other then using a wipe straight after exfoliating the skin. I would have rated these facial wipes higher had the price not gone up as much as it has in recent times.
I first started using these wipes when I had a £5 off No7 voucher and nothing was catching my eye so I thought I'd give these a go. Before I tried these I had always used separate cleanser, toner and moisturiser, would one wipe really be able to do all of these things?
These wipes come in a blue pack with a white plastic lid. It states that they are 4 in 1 wipes which cleanse, tone, remove make-up and moisturise. I really like the plastic lid on these wipes as if you want to use them for occasional use they stay wet. Each pack contains 30 fragrance free wipes which lasts me a good while.
These wipes are a good size and are made of a soft material, they are wet enough to clean your face without leaving your face wet. They claim to remove waterproof mascara and they always remove mine without too much of a problem but not as easily as make up remover and cotton wool does. However they remove all my other make up really easily. They leave my skin feeling clean and refreshed but not particularly moisturised, well not to the level that I am used to from my normal moisturiser. I tend to use the wipes before I go to bed and so still use my normal night cream after them to moisturise my face.
It is much quicker to use one of these than doing my usual cleansing and toning which is why I like them, if I'm really tired it means I get to bed a few minutes earlier!
The wipes are hypo-allergenic and suitable for all skin types, I have combination skin and they work well on it. My Mum has very sensitive skin and she is also able to use these wipes without any reaction.
Price and Availability
These wipes are £7 for 30 wipes, I think this is on the expensive side and I only ever buy them when Boots have their £5 off No7 voucher offer on. For my occasional use I find I never run out. As a Boots own product they are only available from Boots stores and Boots.com
Would I recommend?
Yes, these are good quality wipes as you would expect from No7 and are worth a try is you've not used wipes before. I have only given these wipes 4 stars due to the price.
I brought this product because I was looking for a skin are product made in the UK but had been around for a long time time too, and No7 had been around for 75 years. I noticed that my grand parents and my great grand parents used it so I gave it a chance without second thought and started with these 4 in 1 wipes, which looked ideal.
The image of this product is just a clear blue package with a white opener to release the wipes. You can notice the wipes through the package and it gives you a rough idea how many you have left. One pack contains 30 wipes.
-How to use-
It's smple to use this product, just open the lid, release one wipe, and sweep all over the face and neck. Do this in circular movements like a gentle massage to really budge the dirty patches off your face. I find it very useful to get rid off your make-up, before a face mask/ scrub, or just a pre-cleansing your face.
Even though it says 4 in 1, I would recommend it to be used with the whole No7 skincare routine and only use it on it's own for lazy nights, if you are tight on time in the morning, or if your in hospital and cannot do much movement.
These wipes are suitable for all skin types and works well any skincare routine in the No7 range.
These No7 wipes are a Boots own brand so can only be purchased at Boots. They retail at £7.00 per pack but sometimes there are offers around the stores and they give out £5 off coupons. You can also recieve your Advantage points and spend them with this product.
I personally would pay £7.00 again because I believe it's worth every penny.
This product was made in the UK.
These wipes are some of the best I have ever used. They are soft, effective and gentle - what more do we need?
The packaging for these wipes has changed now and is no longer blue. It is now white with a nice pale blue lid. They look quite elegant now, but I have to admit I preferred the blue as it was different to the many other brands of wiped available. However that's purely cosmetic. The plastic lid on the boots wipes, is great as it really helps to seal in moisture. It's little things like this that make buying the more expensive wipes worthwhile as with the sticker lids the wipes can dry out. There are 25 wipes in a pack, which lasts a good three weeks for me.
These smell really fresh, but are not scented with a 'taste' or anything. They just smell clean. They are really easy to use. Just unfold and wipe across the face or eyes wherever needed. I find they are moist enough that one wipe does my whole face, unless I am removing heavy eye make up and then I need another for the eyes.
These are good wipes! They remove all traces of the day easily, even make up. They are wet enough to be effective but not so wet they leave your face wet. They are soft and do not require rubbing, which can leave the face sore and sensitive. I find these are effective enough to remove my eye make up including waterproof mascara, providing I rub my lashes gently. With many wipes you need to use a few to be effective and they can be quite drying - not the case with these.
These are £7 so a little pricey for face wipes but they are worth the extra expense. If you have a No.7 voucher then these are only £2 so its worth stocking up on them. I find myself, splitting my basket, to get more vouchers to buy these with.
Overall, I think these are the best wipes on the high street and as with most things you get what you pay for.
These wipes cost me £2 with a No. 7 voucher, as opposed to the regular price of £7.
The wipes are thick and luxurious. They come in a handy sized pack which you can re seal to help keep the wipes fresh and moist. The wipes keep well as long as you seal the pack after each use. If you don't keep the pack sealed they can dry out, losing their moisture.
The wipes smell lovely. They have a gorgeous feminine fragrance to them that smells quite floral and uplifting. The wipes are strong and durable. They're really easy to use too. You simply take a wipe from the pack and wipe it across your face. The wipes are soft and gentle. They feel lovely brushed against the skin and they have just the right amount of moisture without soaking your skin in excess liquid.
I find that the wipes remove ALL traces of make-up, even waterproof mascara. You don't have to rub your eyes over and over as the wipes simply remove mascara in one sweep. They're ideal for all skin types too as they have a mild formula. I have sensitive skin and these wipes are perfect for my skin type.
The wipes leave my skin feeling cleansed, toned and refreshed. They're great for general use like freshening up on hot days and they don't leave your hands feeling sticky after use either.
They're just great wipes!
Product: Quick Thinking Face Wipes
Quantity: 30 wipes
I first bought Boots Quick Thinking Face Wipes a few years back when i had a free Boots £5 off No7 voucher. You get the vouchers free when you spend over £5 on any product transaction in Boots. Since then whenever i get any vouchers i always stock up on numerous packs of the wipes as at £7.00, i don't think i can really justify to spend that much money on facial wipes and it's not really within my budget, so using the voucher i only pay £2.00 per pack which i find a lot more reasonable.
The wipes were previously packaged in a thick blue plastic wrapping with a large clip on lid to seal the wipes. Although just recently the packaging as changed to a white packaging, still with a large clip on lid, the logo on the front of the pack and all other relevant information printed at the back. Overall the packaging feel a lot less dense than the old pack. The wipes are still the exact same size so i think they have just cut down on the amount of packaging from what they previously used.
The Wipes come in a pack of 30, each wipe is quite thick in material and well moist. The wipes are really gentle on my skin, they're fragrance free which is a huge positive for me as i have sensitive skin and fragrance wipes can often irritate my skin. The wipes sweep away all impurities and remove all traces of my make-up, even my waterproof mascara which is a huge plus point. They leave my skin feeling squeaky clean, smooth and baby soft.
No other wipe i've used have ever compared to these, they really do deserve my 5/5 star rating. A little pricey yes, but by stocking up when you use vouchers which Boots do quite regularly then it's purse friendly and best of all a great product.
A product which i will definitely continue to purchase.
price & packaging
I always get excited when Boots put out their £5 off No 7 products promotion on (this happens frequently throughout the year). Without the voucher these wipes are expensive, retailing at £7.00 but the voucher takes them to a bargain £2.00 which is cheaper than most brands- and these wipes are top of the range! The packaging is the most luxurious yet practical I have ever experienced in my years of buying face wipes; the re-sealable lid is actually hard plastic which ensures the pack is effectively sealed, no matter how long the wipes are used for. A pack contains 30 wipes which will get you through a month or even longer if you're simply using them on your busiest days/when travelling.
quality of product
These wipes claim to cleanse, tone, remove make-up and moisturise, therefore delivering 4 properties in 1, and they do just that! The wipes are thick and durable as well as adequately moist which ensures that they remove even the toughest make-up as well as leaving your skin feeling healthy and cared for. They don't have any particular scent that I notice, making them suitable for sensitive skin types. As well as this they are enriched with spot fighting ingredients such as witch hazel, fennel and vitamins.
These wipes are well worth it when bought on offer as they truly do delivery 4 things in 1!
Before Christmas I decided to use my Boots advantage card points to treat myself to a No 7 hat box gift set which was on offer of the week and selling for £30.00 instead of £65.00 from memory. As I am feeling a bit old recently I figured that lots of facial skin care treats would be a good option to have for my use and in that set were some quick thinking 4 in 1 facial wipes.
The wipes come in a slightly transparent blue coloured packaging which features a hard white plastic section through which you remove the wipes. The white lid features the gold No 7 logo as well as some black writing which informs us that the quick thinking 4 in 1 wipes are suitable for all skin types and allow you to cleanse, tone, remove eye make up and moisturise. The packaging used for the wipes does serve the purpose of making them look like a premium product in my opinion and I like how it has a plastic top because all too often wipes dry up in the packet due to the fact that the hole they come from cannot be properly sealed.
Now I will admit that I have all the good intentions in the world when it comes to looking after my skin but usually I am so tired when it comes to bed time that a wipe is my best option followed by a bit of night cream. As such I often use baby wipes or something else cheap because I go through a lot of them. The No 7 wipes are by no means cheap at £7.00 for a pack of thirty but as they were included in my set I was obviously happy to use them.
The wipes pull out of the pack easily and there is no issue with more than one pulling out at once which I find does happen with some cheaper brands. The wipes are thick and moist and I felt immediately that they were going to be good quality. The packaging informs me that the wipes contain vitamin pro-B5 to moisturise and soften the skin as well as witch hazel and fennel to clear pores and leave skin feeling smooth and fresh. I was confident that these wipes would be beneficial for my skin as a result.
Using the wipe is really easy as you just wipe them over your face removing your make up as you go. As someone who as a rule wears a lot of eye make up I was pleasantly surprised at how the wipes removed it and I certainly didn't need to spend as much time removing my make up as I normally would which is obviously a good thing.
The wipes are hypo allergenic and fragrance free and so as someone who has quite sensitive skin, especially around my eyes, I was pleased to note that using the wipes left my skin feeling refreshed rather than sore. My only minor issue with the wipes is they are quite wet and so I do feel the need to pat my face dry before applying a night cream.
Whilst I wouldn't say my skin feels incredible after using these wipes I do notice the difference between these and cheaper ones I use in that my skin does feel a bit cleaner and more cared for. Sadly I cannot afford to pay £7.00 a month for facial wipes but should I have a five pounds off No 7 voucher which are often floating around I would certainly buy these again. Should you use wipes just occasionally I think that these would be a very good option providing you will use them in the six months of opening.
Thank you for reading my review!
