I bought these in Boots. I only wear make up for work and I tend to do long shifts and they often finish at ungodly hours of the morning which means that I am often very naughty and don't take my make up off properly, if indeed I take it off at all. That's why I bought these, thinking that they might be a good idea and that they would make me remove my make up properly. They do work, but they aren't perfect.
I got them for £2 for a pack of 25, which is not the cheapest thing I have ever bought and is more than I would have liked to have spent in trialling them. Having said that I now think that they are worth the money that I paid.
The wipes are quite thick and they have a sort of liquidy thing in them that makes them quite wet. This is actually really good because it means that they are quite effective. I find that one wipe is enough for removing all my make up and I do tend to wear quite a bit when I am working (foundation, mascara, lipstick etc). They are big enough that you can use all of the surface area to do different parts of your face. They are also thick enough that you don't have to double them up to use them - they don't tear at all which is good.
The only problem that I have with them is that they do dry my skin out quite a lot and I find that I have to put a good dollop of moisturiser on afterwards, but I can handle that for the convenience. Recommended.
I went into Boot's one day and saw these wipes, I had not thought about buying anything like this before but when I saw then I thought they would be a good idea for me to try them out.
I had always had trouble with getting my make up of each night, especially my eye liner, it never seemed to come off with just a normal wash, and also I had always had trouble with black heads on my nose and this claimed to help clear them up too, so I thought well it could kill two birds with one stone. I purchased just one pack of 25 for £2 I did not want to buy any more just in case they did not work as well as they said they would.
When I opened the packet I had a sniff to see how they smelt, and it just smelt like a bar of good soap that smells pretty nice. I do not think the wipes left the smell on my face like soap does though but I did not mind, they were not bought to make my skin smell good they were bought to make it look good.
I took the first wipe out of the packet, which is easy to open you just pull back a plastic sticker and pull at the first wipe and it just comes out, then you put the sticker back in place, you need to make sure you do this because if you don't the wipes will dry out, however if you do forget like I have done before when I have been in a rush you can just run it under a little bit of water and it still works as good as normal.
I was pretty surprised when I first used it on my skin, it removed my make up without having to rub hard. Normally my eye liner takes ages to get off but when I used this wipe it just glided off with no hassle. It made my skin feel moisturized too. I did not notice any immediate changes in my black heads, but over the last few months with daily usage of these wipes they are not as bad, I still have a few but not as many as I did have, so hopefully if I keep using these eventually they will totally disappear, but in my opinion so far they have done everything it said on the packet. It does make my skin feel nicer and cleaner and it works a treat at getting make up off too so its a real bargain and I will continue to buy these in future.
