      A nice wipe for combination skin.

      I have problem skin, it's combination skin so I get dry patches, oily patches and spots at 36 that is not good. I have always liked to use Tea Tree and Witch Hazel products and something I often purchase are these wipes because unlike most they contain both.

      The Product ....

      The product is a pack of cleansing and toning facial wipes that contains both Witch Hazel and Tea Tree. The wipes are designed to help calm spots, remove dirt and grease, fight the bacteria that can cause future spots and tighten pores.

      To use ....

      These wipes recently had a revamp so no longer look like the packet above, they now come in a white packet with the boots logo, a green band and large green text informing us that there is Tea Tree and Witch Hazel in them. To use the wipes simply unseal the packet, take out a single wipe and re seal the packet so they do not dry out. Gently rub the wipe on the skin until it comes away clean, bin the used repeat as necessary to clean your skin.

      Cost ....

      Sadly these are expensive for an own brand, they are £3.39 for only 25 wipes.

      Summary ....

      These wipes work well, they remove grime well, I do not use them to remove make up because they are not as good as some others at removing the long wear and water proof make up that I like to wear, I also do not like to use them on my eyes so I use my make up remover first then use these to remove the residue of the remover and clean the face. I find they leave my skin really nicely cleansed and not at all too dry. They are a nice thickness so I usually only need 1 to do my face if I have managed to remove all my make up. I think these do help with my spots and skin. I think they only downside to these is that they do smell a little strongly and I do think the cost is a lot for own brand wipes though.

      Advantages

      • Cheap

      Disadvantages

      Not as good as the other tea tree and witch hazel products

      I am usually meticulous about taking my make-up off properly at night but I always keep wipes in the house because there are times when I am so bone tired that I just can't be bothered with properly cleansing and toning but having wipes in the house means that I can still remove the majority of my make-up so that it doesn't damage my skin and so that I don't wake up in the morning looking like Alice Cooper. I have bought and used some other tea tree and witch hazel products from Boot's before and liked them so I bought the wipes assuming that they would be fine for me. They are only 3.39 for a pack of 25 wipes so they are a lot cheaper than some other brands. Unfortunately unlike the other tea tree and witch hazel products that I have used previously I didn't like these wipes at all. First of all they smell really strong and the fragrance is actually off putting. They are very wet though so I thought they would clean well and I thought the mix of tea tree and witch hazel would leave my skin feeling refreshed. Unfortunately my skin didn't like them and the wipes actually stung my skin a little when using them. Also I found that they were rubbish for removing make-up and I had to really rub hard which isn't good for the skin. Even with rubbing hard they didn't take off all the make-up and I ended up having to use a lot of the wipes to get most of it off. Afterwards my skin was left pink and there was still bits of make-up on my skin. They also didn't give my skin the deep down clean and refreshed feel that I thought they would as my skin didn't feel cleansed hardly at all. It still felt dirty even after using several of the wipes. My skin also felt sticky after using them and I would never consider using them in the morning before applying make-up as I don't think they would give my skin a nice enough base for make-up. I used all the wipes up as I don't like to waste things but I would never buy them again as they just weren't as good as they should have been and even though they were cheap I expected better from them as the other products in the range are really good.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Not for me!

      I went on a weekend away with my Mum last August and she brought these with her to save space and for use to share. A packet of 25 wipes costs £3.39 in Boots and these are frequently on 3 for 2.

      The packaging is different from the picture above it is white with a blue strip describing the product.

      These wipes are designed to cleanse and tone in one easy step, they are deep cleansing and remove dirt make-up and oil which can clog pores and make your skin look dull. The wipes contain witch hazel and tea tree which are renowned for their spot fighting qualities.

      The wipes come in a packet with a resealable tab. I found that the tab wasn't really sticky and after a few days it wouldn't stick down at all.

      To use the wipes you simply wipe over the skin until it is clean.

      The wipes have quite a rough texture. I found them to be rather harsh feeling on my skin. The smell of the wipes was nice I like tea tree it smells fresh this was the only positive thing about the wipe though.

      After using these I needed to moisturise as my skin felt uncomfortable and tight. I wouldn't describe my skin as sensitive but these just didn't suit me.

      I wouldn't recommend these wipes they just didn't suit me. In the end I used them to wipe surfaces over around the house rather than waste them and I wouldn't buy these again.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A little too highly priced

      I use a lot of face wipes as not only do I use them at home but I also carry them around in my bag for when i'm at work and feel like I need to refresh, I picked these up when on a break at work as I had ran out. Boots is about the closest place at work for these sort of products so I ended up buying their tea tree and witch hazel version of face wipes. The wipes cost just over £3 for a pack of 25 so they are not the best value and I only bought them due to lack of choice when I needed them.

      The wipes come in a the usual plastic packet with a piece on top which can be pulled back to get to the wipes and then resealed to keep the wipes moist. The packet is mainly green in colour with the pull back section being white and containing the little information you get on the packet.

      The pack is pretty tough to pull back at first but of course that means it has more stick to be able to reseal frequently, the wipes inside are white in colour and folded up on themselves making them easy to pull from the pack one at a time. The wipes smell nice and fresh and you can smell the tea tree on them which I like, the wipes are nice and thick and one wipes is enough to feel like you have given your face a good wash.

      I feel my skin is nice and clean after using these wipes and they are great especially at work when running around in 30 degree heat, they leave my skin feeling soft to the touch although not exactly moisturised but then they don't claimed to be moisturising so this isn't really a bad point.

      I give these 4 stars from 5 as they are nice and moist right the way through the packet, the packet is practicable and stays sealed for the life of the pack, the wipes are soft and strong with no ripping and my skin feels soft however the price is a little too high to score them a full 5 stars.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A quick 'n' easy way to cleanse your face

      I use facial wipes once or twice a day to cleanse, tone and remove eye make-up.

      These wipes are only available to buy at Boots. They are £3.99 a pack and they're usually on offer for "3 for the price of 2", which isn't too bad. The wipes come in a handy resealable pack and you get 25 wipes per pack. The wipes are moist and fresh and they're easy to use. You simply take a wipe from the pack and wipe it gently across your face. The wipes smell fresh and clean and the special pack helps to retain their moisture (as long as you keep it sealed).

      The wipes are ideal for spot prone skin as the Tea Tree helps to cleanse the face and calm down red and/ or sore skin. Tea Tree is a mild antiseptic so these wipes would be great for acne/ blemish prone skin. Witch Hazel is another spot fighting ingredient. The wipes also cleanse and tone the skin and they're great at removing make-up. I usually find that just the one wipe is enough to remove all traces of make-up, unless it's stubborn waterproof mascara that needs extra scrubbing! The wipes are great for travelling as you don't need any water to use them and the pack is small and compact enough to take out and about with you.

      The wipes keep well and after two weeks the remaining wipes (at the bottom of the pack) are still fresh and moist. They're great for all skin types and they're gentle on the skin too. My facial skin is quite sensitive but these wipes don't make it any worse.

      Great facial wipes for those lazy days!

        Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Wipes - Really Handy Product.

        I have been giving the Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel range a second try. I tried them out about 10 years ago and didn't get on with them but I have since changed my mind.

        When I was younger I had extremely spot prone skin. It was very difficult to manage and the Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel range just wasn't man enough to work. I would never of even dreamed of using wipes back in those days either as it wouldn't have been good enough to keep my skin under control.

        Now, at the age of 26 my skin has finally calmed down. It is still very oily and I do tend to get areas that get congested with dirt around my nose and a few blemishes, but to be honest it is in quite good condition these days. If i do get spots they are hormonal and I don't get them all the time.

        Now I have re-tried the Boots Tea Tree Range, I am really loving it. I think it is a really good skin care range for people who have oily skin and blemishes, but perhaps nothing too serious.

        One of the products that I have been re-purchasing again and again since I have been using the range is the Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Wipes. I think these are absolutely fantastic.

        They come in a handy resealable pack, which is great as they last ages without drying out. They packaging is very aethetically pleasing and has all the information on it that you would ever need. You get 25 wipes per pack and they cost £3.39, although they are almost always on three for two offer along with the rest of the range. I use two to three wipes a day, one in the morning and one or two in the evening to remove my makeup so one pack would in general lasts me somewhere between 1-2 weeks (although in actual fact they are open for longer because I have several packs going at any one time).

        It says on the packet that they deeply cleanse and refresh and help keep skin clear and healthy.

        They certainly do remove makeup and eye makeup very well, although they will not remove waterproof mascara. I wouldn't say they exactly deep clean though. I do not see how wipes could possibly deep clean your skin I would not expect them to. If I want to deep clean, I use my sonic cleanser and my facial steamer in the evening so I do not really require these to deep clean. I also use these in conjuncion with the Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Cleansing and Toning Lotion, which I think actually does give quite a deep clean so for me, these work fine. I only really want them to remove all my makeup at night and to clean my face in the morning and that is exactly what they do. I do not wear makeup every day anyway and you don't need a really deep clean when you haven't worn makeup. They smell quite nice and refreshing and they leave your skin feeling soft and clean, with no sticky feeling that some wipes can leave.

        They are so easy to use. You just take one out of the packet and wipe it over your face. They are so handy to have with you. I carry one pack in my handbag, have one in the bathroom and one by my bed. They are great for emergencies when you need to clean your face whilst you are out. Sometimes if I am feeling lazy and cannot be bothered to use my sonic cleanser or my facial steamer at night, I will just hop into bed and use these wipes along with the Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Cleansing and Toning Lotion and they do the job just perfectly with no detrimental effect.

        Overall I would give the Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Wipes a 9/10. I cannot really think of anything bad to say about them apart from the fact that I would never say that wipes can deeply cleanse your skin, like the wording on the packaging would suggest and also that they do not remove waterproof mascara. They remove makeup really easily and leave your skin feeling fresh, clean and comfortable. They are a great price and really handy to have in your handbag.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Yep - does the job

        We bought these in May of this year prior to enjoying a few days away by the seaside. In an attempt to recapture our lost youth, we had decided to have a few days on a camp site in Wales. My wife had been concerned that ready access to water for washing might not be as available as we would like, so wanted to have at least something to hand to freshen up. I don't think she particularly wanted these ones, but they were on offer at the time.

        I have skin which tends towards the greasy and found these to be very refreshing and they were good at cleaning the skin without drying it out - always a bit scary to see the grime that you can wipe off! My wife found they were OK but didn't do as complete a job with her eye make-up as others she has used.

        I found the combination of tea tree and witch hazel within the one product a bit odd really and had never seen them used in combination. I like the smell of each - Tea Tree in particular, but when combined, it smelled a bit odd, albeit in a pleasant kind of way.

        The pack contains 25 impregnated wet wipes and you simply remove them via the resealable flap whenever you need to use them, unfold them and then wipe the chosen area throroughly. I found I needed 2 wipes to get a thorough face and neck wash - I don't have a particularly fat head - they are just a bit small.

        They did stay nice and moist throughout the duration of our stay. I found them the other day in a box from when I had cleaned out the car prior to a service. Unsurprisingly, the last 3 had dried up, but I can hardly complain about that after nearly 6 months.

        Boots do market other products in the Tea Tree and Witch Hazel range, I believe.

        I have since bought other wipes to have with me in the car, but tend to buy them when on offer in the cheap shops. I spend a lot of time in the car and you do get grubby. Any old wipe will do for me, but I would certianly recommend these Boots ones.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        good but serious disadvantages

        Facial wipes are an incredibly simple, easy and efficient way of removing makeup at the end of the day. It saves the hassle of messing around with cotton wool and cleanser, but does have the disadvantage of being nowhere near environmentally friendly.

        These cleansing wipes are Boots' own brand and as such are only available from them. They cost me around £2 when I bought them (2 for £4, often) but don't appear to be available anymore from the Boots website.

        They come in a pack of 25, which if you use them every night means they last around a month. I use mine a little more sparingly because I prefer to actually wash my face, as it removes make-up more effectively than this.

        The wipes smell sort of antibacterial: this must be the tea tree and witch hazel scents mixed together. It's not exactly unpleasant, but neither is it particularly nice.

        These wipes are intended for spot-prone skin, as is the rest of the tea tree and witch hazel range. They do really help to prevent spots and help to keep my skin lovely and clear; however, they don't really measure up when attempting to remove eye make-up. They're quite harsh on the skin around the eyes and can't shift waterproof mascara at all.

        Therefore, invest in a an eye make-up remover too. Of course, that reduces the cost-effectiveness and also some of the simplicity of only requiring one product.

        I like them because they keep my skin clear, but probably wouldn't buy them again because I'd prefer to buy a single product that does everything, including remove eye make-up.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great find and a wipe which does exactly what it is supposed to.

        I switched from using a cotton pad with cleanser on to using facial wipes about a year ago, mostly out of convenience because when you travel a lot these are just so easy to use and handy to carry around.

        I have tried many different brands and recently came across these ones which I had not previously sampled. Bizarrely they were not in Boots itself but in my local B&M Homestore priced at 79p for the packet. Considering in Boots itself a packet of wipes can be well over £2 (at the moment the plain cucumber ones I have used in the past are £2.69 a packet!) this seemed a bit of a bargain.

        Apparently it is not uncommon for excess end of line stock from Boots ranges to end up in these discount shops, well worth remembering all you bargain hunters! These ones have simply had the packaging changed I believe but this is the old style.

        So, I really like the smell of tea tree and was impressed to discover that each wipe is impregnated with the scent. My pack contained 25 wipes and they are packaged in such a way that you pull one at a time out through the resealable hole in the top and they seperate quite easily, this is very handy and prevents you pulling out more than you need as away from the airtight packet they tend to dry out quite quickly.

        Each wipe is damp but not wet and they remove excess dirt, make up and grease from your skin. It always amazes me how much comes off your face, even after just being in the office all day. These ones are quite effective with eye make up which is a plus point. I managed to remove all my make up with only one wipe which is pretty good.

        The great thing about these wipes containing the tea tree and witch hazel is that they are effective on the skin and tighten the pores without any nasty chemicals. In fact on my sensitive skin they seemed to have a soothing effect which I really like about them.

        I will certainly be hunting these down again - but I will be checking in the discount shops before I consider paying full price in Boots! These smell nice, do the job and do not inflame my sensitive skin so to my mind they tick every box. A great find.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Excellent face wipe

          I first started using facial wipes because of travelling and found that they were handy when I was away for the weekend, or going abroad on the plane so that I could 'wash' my face before landing. I have tried many different types of facial wipes but these are my favourite

          They come in a plastic resealable pack of 30 wipes and are around £3 per pack.

          The wipes smell really nice and fresh. The tea tree smell isn't overpowering at all which I think can be a danger with tea tree. They are designed to be wiped all over the face and the moisture on them allows you to do that without it feeling dry.

          Afterwards my face feels really moist and fresh. I can definitely feel the difference and it feels much cleaner. It is quite good for removing make up as well as it will remove a lot effectively, although I find that when I use it for this purpose I often have to use 2 or 3 wipes for it to clean fully.

          The wipes are disposable.

          After using these I found that my skin was smoother and the tea tree and witch hazel properties in the wipes did help prevent blemishes and clear up any exisiting ones.

          The resealable packet does work well although a few times I have left it for a few months between trips and they do dry out after a very long period time.

          They are a great alternative to conventional face wash.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Great

          Now as your probably aware there are a few must have items for women.. my key item has to be facewipes...

          Being a little bit of a traveller and having friends up and down the country I often find myself away from home, staying out. There is nothing worse than waking up after a night out, still having last nights makeup on and having to rush and travel home for work after not having time for a wash..

          This is where facewipes come into play.. now not only are great for taking your makeup off on a night time when you get in, they can also be used in the morning to freshen up if you dont have time for a shower..

          I have tried most different brands of facewipes and even tried other types of wipes such as baby wipes and non of them compare to these Boots face wipes.

          They leave my face feeling very soft and clean, I do not end up with any red blemishes (as some facewipes leave you with)

          The packaging is very good as it keeps he facewipes from drying out, the price is reasonable and the packet is just he right size to fit in my handbag!

          The actual wipes are very strong and durable, hey do not tear easily which means you can be a little bit rough when using them. I found the Boots facewipes much better than any other facewipes or even baby wipes

          You get around 25 facewipes in a packet which is really good value for money.

          Overall I would give this item a 10/10.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Go for it, give 'em a try!

            I use these little beauties daily and they cleanse my skin amazingly well, they keep it healthy, it reduces the chance of breakouts AND it softens too!

            A good few months ago in my local Boots, i snapped these up effectively free with my Advantage points. This is usually how i try out new products, meaning that i don't really lose anything if i'm not satisfied with them.

            Needless to say, these facial wipes impressed me and have since become a big part of my make up removing routine as well as sometimes being used simply just to cleanse and to pep my skin up a little.

            The tea tree and witch hazel properties of the wipes really are very effective! They smell quite strong but divine (if you like the smell of tea tree that is?) and are very soft but without feeling oily - which is a plus as it doesn't oil my skin up. Nor does it dry it out!

            Witch hazel is often used to prevent spots and i can confirm that it seems to work in these wipes! In the past when i'd cleansed, i'd open my pores and get the odd breakout - but i haven't had one since i started using these wipes!

            The only problem is that you can obviously only buy them from Boots, but to be honest - it isn't a problem for me as buy a lot of my skin care items from there. Advantage card at the ready!

            a good value buy

            I tarvel a lot with work surveying on building sites and so my job can be a little 'mucky'. I am also a little prone to spots if I do not take care of my skin properly.

            I purchased a pack of Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Cleansing and Toning Wipes many months ago for a little over £3.00 and I have been that impressed that I now regualrly buy them and use them on my face every day. A pack of 25 wipes will generally last me for about two - three weeks.

            I find that the witch hazel and tea tree does my skin good, cleaning really well and leaving no residue of the sort of dirt and dust and muck I pick up at work. The claims are that these wipes deeply cleanses and refreshes and I vouch that they do that.

            I have not had a single spot since I began using these.

            The wipes are easily removed individually from the packet and they each remain moist as long as I keep the packet sealed, even when they are kept in my works vehicle. I have used these and stored them in my van during the summer months and this has not dried them out nor tainted them.

            Presently they are on special offer at Boots at 2 packs for £5.00, so I have grabbed a good stock and topped up my Boots Advantage Card in the process. Can't say fairer than that.

            Another winner in this range!

            I have used Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel cleanser on my face every night for many years now. I have tried others at various times but always come back to this one. I have written a review about it if you are interested.

            Anyway a while ago I was in Boots and had a voucher for £1 off any item in the Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel range. When I looked the items were already on offer at 2 for £5 so I chose a bottle of my favourite cleanser and as I needed a new pack of cleansing wipes I decided to try the ones from this range.

            As I said earlier I use the liquid cleanser every night when I am at home but when I travel away taking cleanser and pads is a bit of a faff so I use wipes which I keep in my vanity case so they are ready to go.

            The Packaging

            The full title of these wipes is Boots Cleansing and Toning Wipes (30) and they come in a pale green semi transparent packet with a peel off panel on the front. The whole of the Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel range has the same pale green colouring and I think that it all looks clean, fresh and very inviting especially when it is all displayed on the shelf at Boots.

            The wipes offer to deep cleanse and refresh the skin and help to keep it clear and healthy.

            There is further information on the back of the packet including instructions for use, which I think I could have worked out myself! LOL!

            The Wipes

            To use the wipes I just have to peel back the panel on the packet and remove a wipe, resealing the packet straight away to keep the rest of the wipes fresh and moist. Each wipe is reasonably thick and is about the size of a face cloth.

            The wipe is moist enough to actually wring a drop or two of water from it if you tried hard enough but it isn't too wet so it is just right for cleansing the face without wetting it as such.

            The wipes smell lovely as well. I find fragrances notoriously difficult to describe but I will give it a go! They have a light, fresh smell which isn't at all chemical. I am guessing that the smell is tea tree and witch hazel but I have no idea what witch hazel smells like and I have to say that I cannot distinguish any smell of tea tree on the wipes.

            I just smooth the wipe all over my face and neck which gives me the same cleansing and toning effect as the lotion that I use at home. I then just throw the wipe away.

            I have found that the resealable packet is excellent for keeping the wipes moist and ready for use. I did wonder if they would begin to dry out after having been left in my vanity case for a couple fo months in between uses but this definitely has not been the case so I am very impressed.

            The Effects

            After using the wipes my skin feels clean, refreshed and toned. Whilst the pores feel tightened my face does not feel dry or uncomfortable.

            I find that the wipes do the job of cleansing my face just as well as the liquid does when I am at home.

            Warnings

            As with all these sorts of products you are advised not to get the moisture in your eyes and, if you do, to wash it out with clear water immediately. You are also advised to store these wipes out of direct sunlight.


            The Cost

            As I said earlier there was an offer on at the time that I purchased these where I got two products from the range for £5. That was about six months ago and every time that I have been into Boots since the same offer has still been available. I understand that the full price for this item is around the £3 mark although I can't check this as the Boots website is unavailable at the moment!

            The pack contains 30 wipes and they will not dry out in the packet so they can all be used making the packet very good value for a product of this high quality.

            Conclusion

            I have now used the wipes, the night treatment gel, the cleanser and the face pack in this range and they have all been excellent products which I shall use again - as I said earlier I have been using the cleanser for many years already!

            It is possible to pay an awful lot of money to get suitable toiletries for the skin on the face but when I can get excellent products like this for a brilliant price why should I pay more?
