I came across these face wipes by chance when I was putting together an order for my daughter from Vegan Store. This is a website specializing in Vegan items and one I use regularly. I needed to make up the order to pass the free postage threshold limit and saw these and thought I would try them. This was about 2 years ago.
Over the years I have tried many things to remove make up from soap and water to cleansers, toners and moisturisers from various makes, but recently became aware of the need to try and reduce my exposure to chemicals known as parabens partly due to some articles I have read about the dangers these may pose to some individuals. I don't know if there is any truth in these scares but feel swayed towards finding good products which are also as free from potentially harmful chemicals as possible. Soap and water may be the purest method but it does leave my skin dry and doesn't always remove my entire make up completely.
I tried a number of face wipes and found some better than others. I was quite fond of Boots cucumber wipes because they are good value and are fresh smelling and I was using these most of the time before periodically adding some which were on offer or made certain claims. Some I found which claimed to be moisturising like the pink Johnson's wipes were leaving my skin feeling greasy and in need of further cleansing, and others dried up in the packet before I had finished them.
Faith in Nature wipes were different because they fulfilled all my criteria for a fresh wipe which removed my entire make up easily and thoroughly. Prior to seeing these wipes on the website "Veganstore" I had no prior knowledge of them and was interested to learn that they had been made by a company formed over 30 years ago by a lady called Rona Rose. She started out making natural skincare products in her own kitchen using herbs and plants. Since then the business has expanded greatly and she has a comprehensive website called www.faithinnature.co.uk which also has a mail order facility.
These wipes are the cream of the bunch, they are so moist they are the closest thing to a wet flannel you can get, and this moisture lasts until the very final wipe is used. You actually feel you have washed and the make up is totally removed.
They are produced and packaged in a very attractive lush green pack which gives the feeling they are as fresh as a summer meadow. The colour is much like the old Timotei adverts where a gorgeous blond haired girl with a mane of shimmering straw like hair bathed under a waterfall.
Each pack contains 25 wipes and they contain vitamin c and organic aloe vera which is soothing. I really can't fault these wipes and have used them consistently because I think they out perform all other brands of more well known makes.
Price wise they are £2.75 from Faith in Nature themselves, £2.97 from Goodness Direct (www.goodnessdirect.co.uk), and £3.61 from Veganstore (www.veganstore.co.uk).They are also available from many health food stores as well. If you visit their website you will be able to search for a stockist in your local area.
The Faith in Nature website also has lots of other products they make and as the postage charges are quite hefty for small orders it may work out to be good value to place a sizeable order if you find a few of their products which you like.
If you are looking to purchase from an ethical company then this is right up there with the best. They are not testing anything on animals and are members of an organisation called Groundwork who are an independent environmental group. They reuse all paper and cartons and plastic drums are recycled or reused.
The website has some impressive testimonials from customers who praise their products from laundry liquid to shampoo-all have helped in the improvement of various medical conditions especially in the field of allergies and dry skin conditions.
So I would say try them because although not that well known they really do outshine their competition!
