I do try and be good and cleanse tone and moisturise properly but sometimes it just isn't practical or else I just can't be bothered with the hassle of the whole routine and this is where facial wipes come in. I always have some facial wipes in the house though I try and be good and only use them on occasion and not every day. Although I do not expect cleansing wipes to clean my skin as well as a proper cleanser I do expect them to at least remove make-up and leave my skin looking and feeling clean. These Re-Nourish wipes from L'Oreal are pretty good at removing make-up from my skin but I didn't think that they were the most gentle for my skin. In the packet you get 25 wipes and they cost £3.49 so they are pretty good value for money. They come in a resealable packet and the wipes are moist without being too wet. They are good at removing all my make-up including my eye make-up but I do feel that I sometimes have to be quite vigorous with them to get all the make-up removed whereas with my cleanser I just have to gently wipe my skin to remove everything. After removing all my make-up my skin feels nice and clean and it isn't left sticky with the residue from the wipes. The only problem that I have with these is that L'Oreal say that they are supposed to be kind to skin and actually nourish it. They are also supposed to be suitable for sensitive and dry skin. However when using these I find that they can make my skin pink and also they can sometimes sting a little. I also never feel as though my skin is moisturised after using these and I need to use a moisturiser afterwards with them. Overall these are decent wipes and they do clean well and remove all but the most stubborn of make-up but there are other wipes available which are more moisturising and kinder to skin than these ones.
We're just back from a month long holiday to the US, where we had fabulous weather, in fact the highest temperature we had one day was 112 Fahrenheit!! I took loads of lotions 'n' potions with me, and I brought even more back according to my husband! And so I've got loads of new stuff to review! To save on packing (and to save money - as most things are normally much cheaper in the US) I didn't take all the toiletries I would need for the month with me, I restocked on a lot of items whilst we were there. One of the items that I needed to repurchase a few times was face wipes. I'm not brand loyal when it comes to face wipes, I'm happy to use whichever face wipes happen to be on offer, and so I figured that I'd easily pick up decent quality cheap face wipes on our travels. Unfortunately I was wrong there and I ended up paying much more for face wipes than I would have done had I stocked up in the UK before we went. The face wipes that I bought a couple of times whilst on holiday were the L'Oreal Tripe Active Re-Nourish cleansing wipes. I paid $5.99 (plus tax) per packet (with 25 wipes per packet), which I thought was quite expensive when I've seen them for around £2, when on offer, in Boots. I don't normally use face wipes every day, I'm usually a wash off cleanser kind of girl. However I do tend to switch and usually use face wipes as opposed to my wash off cleanser whilst on holiday. I find that in the heat a face wipe feels much more refreshing, especially if I keep the packet of wipes in the fridge so they're lovely and cold on my hot skin. The fragrance in the Loreal wipes was really quite subtle, they didn't smell of anything in particular, they just had a very 'creamy' and 'clean' fragrance to them. Only a hint of the fragrance seemed to linger on my skin for a little while after using them. The L'Oreal wipes themselves were an average thickness I would say, they weren't as thick as some wipes I've used, nor were they super thin like some value wipes I've used. The wipes were not actually very wet, they were more damp than wet, but they did actually work well enough though at cleaning my face and removing all of the days muck, grime, sweat and suntan lotion from my face. I found that one wipe was adequate in the mornings, however after a day out in the sun I would need two wipes to feel that my face was thoroughly cleansed. As for removing make up, they did remove the make up I'd worn during the day - just basically mascara and lip gloss. I didn't try them on a face full of make up from the evenings as I always used my wash off cleanser followed by my moisturiser for those evenings where I'd been wearing more make up. I found that these face wipes were really gentle on my skin and they didn't irritate my skin at all. They actually left my skin feeling quite soft and smooth, and ever so slightly moisturised. I didn't end up with dry or taut skin at all after using these. Some days I would only use face wipes (no moisturiser), morning evening and night, and I didn't have any problems with my skin at all. They left my face feeling clean and refreshed, and they got rid of any greasiness on my skin as well. They were easy to use, I just needed to gently rub a wipe all over my face, eyes and neck, there was certainly no need for any vigorous rubbing. The packet resealed every time so that the remaining wipes stayed wet until I'd finished the packet. I wouldn't rush out and buy these again, not that there was anything wrong with them, just that I can get face wipes just as good for less money (well maybe not in the US!).
I only bought L'Oreal Triple action nourishing wipes as they were drastically reduced from £3.49 for a pack of 25 wipes, to £1.89. They were on special offer in Asda and I had considered buying two packs. I then had second thoughts, as I have made this mistake before and found that I haven't been really happy with what I've bought and it's turned out to be a false economy. I therefore settled for just the one pack and decided that if they were any good, I could always pop back out for more. I usually buy Johnsons or Boots wipes and I have also used Simple and Superdrug ones too. They have all been pretty similar in terms of effectiveness, but as I had never bought L'Oreal wipes before (mainly as they are so expensive) I was unsure what to expect from them but did have reasonably high hopes. The wipes come in a handy resealable plastic container. It's important to ensure the tab is closed properly every time you use one, however, as they can dry out quickly. The wipes are large in size, white I colour and very thick when I compare them to even a Johnsons' Baby Wipe. They have a lovely subtle fresh aroma, which isn't perfumed, exactly, but it still smells really delicate and fresh. The wipes are suitable for even the most sensitive of skin and they remove all traces of make up from the face and eyes, with relatively little effort. They are also brilliant at removing waterproof mascara and eyeliner. They are very moist, but not so much so that they are soggy. Usually I only have to use one wipe, whereas with some cheaper brands I am forced to having to use more than one. They leave no sticky or tacky residue on my skin after I have used them and they feel and look brilliant quality. Once I'd used these they were no longer on offer and they were back up to their original price. I would buy them again and I'd go so far as to say I'd even pay full price for them. I was very impressed but I have so many Simple Wipes to get through at the moment, that it will be some time before I get around to needing more. A great quality product and one I highly recommend.
These were priced at £3.49 for a pack of 25 wipes which is a reasonable price given the good quality of the product and the great results that i have enjoyed with this product by Olay. These wipes are ideal for my skin which can dry out a little at this time of year and they are also very good for sensitive skin as well. These are good for using when out and about as the resealable packet is well made and does not come apart even when getting to the end of the packet and there is a good consistency to the wipes from first to last unlike some cheaper brands where the last few can be a bit too soggy in my experience. These triple action nourishing wipes are very good at cleansing my skin, they are enriched with something called ceramide which is very soothing and comforting on the skin and these are excellent for cleaning out my pores and removing make up. There is a nice softness to the white wipes however they are also nice and thick compared with cheaper brands and this makes them strong and quite robust so there is no annoying tearing or fraying when they are being used. They are fragranced but this is quite subtle and not very noticeable to be honest, Olay have managed to get teh moisture balance just about right and there is a richness abouit these wipes which makes them a pleasure to use. They are very effective at removing make up and they are kind to my skin leaving it feeling nice and refreshed and ready to be moisturised oonce it has dried off. These are certainly a wipe that I will use again in the future and if I see them on offer I plan to stock up as they are not the cheapest in the shops but in my opinion they are worth the little extra given the quality of both the product and the results.
I've mentioned in a few reviews that at this time of the year my skin can become dry and I therefore have to use skincare products which are more specifically aimed for those with dry and sensitive skin as my skin can flare up without much notice. I will quite happily try most brands of products aimed with dry skin in mind with the hope that they can keep my skin gently nourished and looked after. My recent purchase of make up wipes was the L'Oreal Triple Active Re-Nourish Cleansing Wipes. Now I don't use wipes every day to remove my make up but there are times when they come in useful, say for example a late night home, they are just a quick way of removing make up. L'Oreal is a brand I trust and use a number of their products so I thought these wipes would be worth a try. == The Wipes == The L'Oreal Triple Active Re-Nourish Cleansing Wipes have been specifically formulated and developed by L'Oreal Laboratories for those of us who suffer with dry and sensitive skin. They have a gentle formula which will not only cleanse the skin but care for it at the same time. The wipes themselves are enriched with an ingredient called ceramide, being the key ingredient to help give the skin comfort whilst keeping it soft. == Packaging == The wipes come in a small white packet with a re-sealable tab on the front where you can pull the wipes from. The design is incredibly minimal which includes the L'Oreal logo and product name. There is a touch of pink on the front tab but nothing majorly colourful. == In Use == The wipes are white in colour and are square in size about the same as any other make up wipe. They are incredibly soft to the touch in quite a creamy way which is nice and they do have a decent thickness and you can tell that they are not cheap wipes as they are a lot thicker and don't look as see through and woven. They do have a very gentle, mild fragrance which is perfectly pleasant and an aroma I expected with a product suited for dry/sensitive skin. The wipes are quite moist but in a creamy sort of way which is nice to the touch and incredibly soft on the skin. I only need to use one wipe to sufficiently remove my mascara, eyeshadow and foundation which is definitely good. It does, however, leave your face feeling a little damp for a few seconds after using the wipes so you do have to wait for a minute or so to apply your moisturiser of choice. Now although I don't use these wipes on a daily basis they do manage to leave my skin incredibly soft and looked after. They don't irritate my skin whatsoever which is obviously a good thing nor do they dry it out either. After using the wipes although it can take a minute or so for my face to be completely dry they don't leave behind a greasy film or residue enabling a moisturiser to go on easily. They effectively remove all my make up with ease whilst moisturising my skin so for me these wipes do what they claim. == Overall == A lovely packet of wipes by L'Oreal. They do what they claim by removing makeup and caring for the skin. However, they don't do anything different than a few other brands of wipes that I bought for dry/sensitive skin, a few of which are cheaper. Therefore, I can only award 4 stars but definitely a recommendation and I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again if on offer. == Product Information == Brand: L'Oreal Amount: 25 wipes per pack Price: £3.52 (Boots Dec 12)
As a subscriber to L'Oreal's website, I am regularly able to obtain printable money off vouchers with one of them recently offering me £2.50 off any skincare product. As a result, I opted for a pack of 25 of their Triple Active Re-Nourish Cleansing Wipes, which are suitable for dry and sensitive skin and this review discusses my experience with using them. The plastic packaging is considerably luxurious due to L'Oreal's golden logo, which always catches my eye when I'm browsing through the various skincare products in store. As with the majority of products of this nature, the packet is opened by way of a pull back tab, which offers a reasonable amount of stickiness to enable the packet to be resealed and prevent the remaining wipes from drying out. The white coloured wipes offer a good thickness and are easily removed where only one is dispensed as opposed to half a dozen. The wipes offer a delightfully fresh aroma, which I would describe as refreshing with a delicate hint of floral. They offer a good size of 21 cm x 15 cm and are adequately moist, so I find that one is sufficient to wipe over my face. I'm always a little sceptical when trying out new brands of wipes, particularly as I cannot bear my skin feeling damp after using, but I need not have worried, as this was not the case nor was there any sticky film or greasy residue. L'Oreal market the wipes as triple active with the first claim being that they are effective at removing make-up and I found they were successful at removing my non waterproof mascara, eyeliner and eye shadow. However, a good few strokes were needed with each wipe and I find the task much easier when using a supermarket brand of baby lotion and cotton wool. Unfortunately, I suffered mild stinging when I used them on the delicate skin around my eyes, so I refrained from trying this out again. In terms of using the wipes to remove my mousse foundation, L'Oreal claim they have effective cleansing properties and I would have to agree with this statement, as my foundation was effortlessly removed with one wipe with a further wipe being required to thoroughly cleanse my skin. I felt satisfied that any dirt and impurities were removed, as my skin felt clean and fresh. Whilst L'Oreal claim the wipes are alcohol free and contain ceramide to nourish and sooth the skin, I found they caused a slight tightness to my cheeks for a few minutes following use although the sensation dispersed fairly rapidly, so I cannot agree with their third claim where they allege the skin is left feeling comfortable. On a positive note, my skin felt wondering soft and smooth although I felt it necessary to apply moisturiser after using. The wipes should be used within three months of opening and I found that the wipes remained sufficiently moist for the four weeks that it took me to use them. The wipes should be disposed of in a bin with the empty packet being suitable for recycling. I cannot see me purchasing these wipes again, as I've obtained similar results from much cheaper brands and I'm glad that I paid only 50p for my packet, as I was able to redeem my £2.50 voucher against the normal retail price of £3.
