I always use cleansing wipes as they are convenient and I carry a pack around in my bag for when I feel I need to refresh in work. These ones are more expensive than the ones I usually buy at £2 for a pack of 25 but I bought them when they were on offer. The wipes comes in a very simple white packet with a peel back clear area on the top to dispense the wipes, the packet is the same idea as a packet of baby wipes. The packet has the Nivea logo along with some wording all in different shades of blue which I think looks really nice and stands out. The wipes are for normal and combination skin and are said to cleanse, tone and hydrate aswell as removing make up and waterproof mascara and they contain vitamin E and Hydra IQ. The wipes are alcohol free and they have been dermatologically and ophthalmologically approved. The wipes are rectangular in shape and they are folded in such a way that they pull out of the packet easily and only one at a time. The wipes are pretty big for a face wipe which I like and the wipes are textured. The wipes are nice and moist from the top of the packet right through to the bottom but the bottom ones are not too wet which I often find with cheaper ones. The wipes smell slightly fruity to me with a hint of lemon but not overpowering. I use these wipes on my face and neck every night and they feel really soft against my skin, they get into the creases of my face well and my face feels lovely and refreshed after use. My skin is left a little damp after use but this soon dries and then my skin feels really soft and smooth which is great as I don't feel the need for moisturisers after using them. The wipes are really worth the full price although I would never have bought them at full price I am now glad I have tried them. They feel lovely against my skin, my skin feel lovely when I have used them, definitely 5 stars.
I was in a bit of a rush the other day and decided to cut efforts down by buying my facial wipes in Sainsburys. I usually use Superdrug tea tree wipes but couldn't really be bothered to go to a completely different shop and since these were on offer with a pack costing £1.54 or so I picked up a pack. - Packaging - They come in simple white packaging (bit updated to the picture above!) with the Nivea brand and the pack states it's for "normal & combination skin". The pack states it cleanses, tones and hydrates, removes makeup and waterproof mascara and is suitable for sensitive eyes. They are alcohol free and contain vitamin E and Hydra IQ (not too sure what it is exactly but it is meant to give a moisture effect!). - The wipes - The wipes are easy to remove from a resealable oval hole on the top of the pack. They come out really easily and one by one so they are easy to use. The wipes are an average size, not too small and are quite thick so to give a solid wipe all over and they don't tear easily. - My Experience - The wipes are refreshing and lovely to use, not only do they soothe the skin but they also cleanse, as I can see the dirt coming off your face onto the wipe so it is clear they are doing a good job. In terms of removing makeup, I tend to use these wipes mainly at night after the day and they seem to effectively remove my makeup easily and swiftly and I don't feel the need to constantly rub at my face to get my foundation and eye makeup off! In terms of a face wipe that does something for my skin though these wipes fall a bit flat. As an everyday cleansing wipe, this is all I'd really use them for - removing makeup and giving my face a bit of a once over but in terms of making my skin feel fresh and rejuvenated it doesn't really do anything! My skin does feel hydrated and moisturised but for bad skin that could do with a bit of a boost these aren't really the way to go. - Overall - So I do like these wipes and for a quick facial refresh - taking off makeup and leaving my face clean and clear these are great. However, in comparison to my tea tree wipes they don't feel as though they are doing anything for my face so I have to knock off one star. For £1.54 I'd recommend them though!
I'm not loyal to any brands when it comes to purchasing face wipes. One of the packets currently in my draw that I have been using is these Nivea refreshing facial cleansing wipes. The packet is different from the picture above but it is the same product, instead it comes in a white packet with a removable sticker. (I may have an old pack as they have been lying around for quite a while) To remove a wipe you just peel back the sticker and take one out - ensure you place the sticker back properly as otherwise all wipes do tend to dry out. The packet states there are 25 wipes in a pack and that it is for normal skin. That these wipes cleanse, tone and invigorate in one easy step - removes even waterproof make up. I used one of these wipes earlier in the day and did find them to do the trick. It wiped off all my make up without any problems and I only use one, sometimes two wipes. These wipes are lightly scented with the familiar nivea type scent - similar to the cream they do in the blue pot. I did not mind the scent and thought it was quite nice that it was scented but I have read others have not liked it, so it's worth bearing in mind if you are going to buy a pack. The wipes come in the standard square type shape but these also have raised bumps on one side of the wipe. These are not uncomfortable to use and I think they actually work quite well in terms of making sure all the make up is removed. It can be hard to take water-proof mascara off compared to the rest of your make up, but with a few rubs the wipe will take it off. They are gentle to use on the skin and are made well and so do not feel as they are about to fall apart when using them. The packs can be bought ranging from £1-£3. I tend to buy these when they are on offer and stock up on a few different branded wipes. I give these cleansing wipes 5 stars as I wouldn't have a problem using them again and found them to do the trick in terms of making sure all my make up was removed. Others have given it less stars due to the price of the product but if you catch them on offer it is the best time to purchase, and if you do not like or would not prefer scented facial wipes then I would give these a miss. Thanks for reading :) (this review may also appear on ciao)
I started using the Nivea Visage Refreshing Facial Cleasing Wipes for a quick and easy way to take off my makeup after a night out when I was worn out, tired, and very probably a little tipsy and I can recommend them as being quite effective and easy to use. But there are a few things you need to bear in mind. Firstly the packaging and price:- The Nivea Viage wipes come in plastic packs, holding 25 wipes per pack. The pack has a tab on the top you peel back to pull out a wipe and this reseals to keep in the moisture. The packaging is a soft baby blue colour with black clear text advising how to use and the properties of the wipes. A pack usually costs around £3 each. They are reguarly on offer in supermarkets for either some money off or buy one get one free. The full price of £3 is pretty good if you base it on using 1 wipe per day so roughly its £3 a month. Secondly the claims of the product:- The wipes are designed for normal to combination skin, and aim to replenish the skins natural moisture level while cleansing. They are enriched with lotus extract and vitamins and the wipe is described as 'The soft fleece with its refreshing formula invigorates your skin'. Nivea say that the wipes will remove 'all traces' of makeup and even waterproof mascara'. Thirdly, the verdict:- As mentioned above I only tend to use the wipes after a night out , and when I really just cannot be bothered to do my normal facial routine. They do take off most of your makeup, including eyemake up and normal mascara. But it does not seem to remove all the makeup. The morning after I have used the wipes I wake up and still have some mascara left on...or smudged around my eye. Also on one or two occasions where i have used the wipes and followed them with some toner, the toner picks up lots of left over make up on my skin. The wipes don't really work on waterproof mascara and you really have to work on your lashes to get any of it off. The wipes are refreshing on your skin, and I dont feel i need any moisturiser after I have used them so they definately moisturise while cleansing. They are fragrence free and suit my sensitive skin. Overall, I will still only use them for the odd occasion. I think if you did use them everyday you skin could get clogged up. But for convience they do the job.
I am generally a Nivea girl, always have been always will be...unless they change their fragrance! For some reason it reminds me of my childhood and I first started buying Nivea products because of that, but now I buy them for their consistency and performance. The refreshing face wipes are no exception. I always used to be a cleanse, tone, moisturise person, but quite frankly it bores me, so these wipes are ideal for me. They're quite a wet wipe, which makes them much more pleasant to use than the drier ones that feel like they're scratching your face and they really do leave my skin feeling refreshed and clean. The best part about them is that you can get your nail under one and get right into the corners of your eyes or along your lash line...whenever I use a cleanser that you put on cotton wool it never gets rid of all last traces of mascara and eyeliner, but that isn't a problem with the wipes. I was ecstatic when I found these in Bodycare...they do a single pack for £2.45 or a twinpack for £2.30...don't ask me why, but I'm not going to complain! So not only do they do the job I want, they're also quite good value too :)
I love the convenience of having an all in one facial wipe - something that will remove dirt, grease, make-up and waterproof mascara all in one go. As a busy mum with very little time to myself in the evenings, these could have been made for me! I usually go for a middle-of-the-road product brand wise - not quite value stuff but not the top brands either - and these have served me well. When I came across these Nivea Visage wipes on offer at Wilkinson's for buy one get one free, it bought them more into my price range (a little over £2 for two packs) so I gave them a go. Packaging is as for most of these wipes - white plastic wallet with a resealable sticky tab over the top so that when you remove a wipe you can reseal the pack to keep the remainder of the wipes moist. This aspect of the packaging actually works pretty well, and certainly much better than some wipes that I have previously tried, not losing it's sticky for the duration of the packs life. The wipes themselves are pretty thick and soft to the touch too. I was amazed at the quality difference between these and my usual cheaper wipes (usually wilkinson's own). They were so thick that I felt they would withstand a fair amount of wiping (they did!). They also had a decent amount of moistness to them without feeling too wet - a difficult balance to achieve, but pretty much spot on for me. They also had a nice clean, refreshing scent to them so I felt like after wiping my face I had had a pretty decent wash - not a feeling that I had had from many of these wipes before. The wipes were pretty effective at removing dirt and make-up - I didn't feel the need to scrub or apply any excess pressure. However, they struggled a little with waterproof mascara - this area needed a little more time spent on it. Generally though, pretty good performance (I wouldn't recommend if you were taking off heavy make-up though, but then I'm not sure any wipe would really be up to that task!). The wipes were gentle on my skin, which can be a little sensitive, and I suffered no blotchiness or irritation. For me the main disadvantage is that they are pretty expensive at full price for a pack of 25 wipes. I would buy these again, if I saw them on a decent offer.
Although I personally prefer a separate cleansing and toning routine I'm the first to admit that sometimes I find it a bit of a pain to do so and so do, from time to time buy a packet of cleansing face wipes for quickness in my life more than anything else. The other day I spotted these in Asda (on offer) and decided that as I hadn't tried them before that I would grab some and hoped that they would be better than the cheaper brands or shops own offerings I usually purchase. The Packaging: The wipes come in a mainly white plastic oblong shaped packet with a hole to the top of it and a pull on/off see through plastic section to simply pull the wipes through. On the front of the Packet I am told that they are Nivea Visage Daily Essentials Refreshing Facial Wipes and that they are for normal & combination skin 'Cleanses, tones and hydrates, removes make-up & waterproof mascara and are suitable for sensitive skin' and that they contain vitamins & natural lotus extract and are alcohol free and that my packet contains 25 wipes. On the back of the packet other information listed includes being told a bit more about the product and how to use them, ingredients and warnings are also given and contact details for Beirsdorf (the manufacturer of the product) are listed. This really is a robust and informative packet without being flashy or gimmicky in any way. The front section is sticky so opens and reseals very well indeed thus keeping the wipes as fresh as anything for as long as need be. A Bit About The Product According To The Information Given On The Back Of The Packet: Whilst cleansing it is important to respect your skin's natural moisture balance to keep your skin fresh and hydrated all day long. Nivea Visage Daily Essentials Refreshing Facial Cleansing Wipes are enriched with specially selected Vitamins & Natural Lotus Extract: Gently cleanses and tones your face, neck and eye area in one step. Removes make-up and waterproof mascara. Your skin is completely cleansed, toned and hydrated, leaving your skin looking and feeling fresh all day long The Wipes: Square shaped and white in colour they have slight raised bumps to one side of them and are transparent in part and are made from a cloth that is hard to tear and rather stretchy, moist and has a soapy sort of floral smell to them, not one I personally like very much to be honest as it is quite a heavy fragrance and a bit sickly smelling to me. They are soothing when used on the face though not as moist as I thought they would be and even though they have raised bumps on them are not one bit uncomfortable to use and the moisture given isn't greasy. However I'm not thrilled with these at all. First off yes they clean a cleanish face well enough, lifting off everyday grease and grime with totally ease. However these do struggle to remove all traces of make up, particularly if like me you like dark colours on the face and plenty of them! I find to remove make up as throughly as possible I need about 3-4 wipes making these not very economical for me at all. These also leave my face feeling a little sticky. Granted that feeling does wear off after a while and by itself giving way to soft feeling skin but initially that feeling is not one I want and I always get a bit of a tight feeling within my skin to my forehead after using these too. The smell lingers on my skin for a good while after using them, great if you like the fragrance, not so great if like me your not keen on it though. I haven't had any skin rashes or spotty breakouts through using these however and they do, do a job if your willing to work with them however for me I find these time consuming and a wee bit annoying as I want a wipe to work with ease without me having to use loads of them and putting in loads of elbow grease! Available in all good chemists and supermarkets and expect to pay around £2.99 a packet although at the time of submitting this review they are on offer in Asda at £2.00 a packet.

I often find there are many good deals on nivea visage cleansing wipes such as 2 for 1 in a lot of supermarkets and boots and superdrug which is the main reason why I buy them. The packaging is a light blue pack which feels as though it keeps the wipes fresh and wet inside the packet. The soft colours of the packaging make you feel like the product is soft and sensitive to your skin. These wipes claim to be refreshing and cleanse tone and invorgorate in one step. They also remove make up and waterproof mascara and leave your skin feeling fresh. I have to admit that they really do do the job. My skin is left smelling fresh and clean and cool from the soft wipe. The texture of the wipe is soft to my sensitive skin, and I love the smell. I tend to wear a lot of heavy eye make up in the evening and they really do the trick without tearing or smearing or stinging. I have to have a good make up wipe to get through the amount of mascara I wear! I bought these wipes after seeing them on special offer in Tesco and being unable to nip to Boots for my usual face-wipes but being in need of some more...I must say though despite choosing a well-known brand I was rather disappointed with the performance of the product : ( The product is for normal and combination skin however unlike when I use my usual Botanics wipes I do not feel clean and refreshed afterwards...instead I've found that the wipes leave your face feeling rather sticky and although I do not wear an awful lot of make-up I do have to use a couple of wipes before my face actually feels like it is properly cleansed! The wipes themselves just do not seem to be 'wet' enough and dry up pretty quickly after taking them out of the re-sealable packet. Having said that, if they were a little more moist the wipes would probably be pretty good as: 1. The are quite thick 'heavy duty' wipes : ) 2. The have a textured surface...which makes a little bit of an effort to partially exfoliate your skin 3. They smell pretty good Anyway despite all these lovely things about the wipes they just aren't upto par when it comes to their primary job of cleansing your face: 1. They aren't moist enough 2. They don't leave your face feeling cleansed and clean 3. They leave your face smelling nice but feeling sticky In my honest opinion I would recommend going for a different face-wipe these ones just haven't got the cleaning power!
Since the arrival of clensing wipes on the supermarket shelves, I have to admit that I have halved the time taken on my skincare regime. While I still like to use separate cleanser and toner, I rarely have the time as most mornings I am running late making packed lunches and ensuring teeth have been brushed. Most mornings I just grap a cleansing wipe and slap on a bit of moisterizer. I have tried loads of different wipes and have found some gems and also some that feel rough against the skin. I generally just pick up whatever is on speical offer and this week when I was doing my weekly shop, I spotted these Nivea Visage Refreshing Facial Cleansing wipes reduced down from £2.99 to £1.49 for a pack of 25 wipes in my local Tesco's. I decided to give them a go, as I have tried some of the Nivea skincare products and have always been quite impressed with the results. The seem like a quality brand which are also reasonably priced. The wipes came in a cool blue packet and the idea that they were refreshing really appealed as I need all the help I can get to get myself up and running in the morning and it takes me a while to lose that just woken up puffy face.... not a good look. I used one of these wipes the very next morning and as usual I was a blurry eyed monster in a huge ruch trying to hurry up my two little monsters so they made it to pre-school on time. The first thing I notice when I opened the packet was these wipes have a really fantastic aroma. They just smell incredible fresh and invigourating and I was really excited about trying them out on my sleepy face. I used the wipe over my whole face and it felt soft to the skin and moist enough to freshen me up without feeling too wet. The wipe cleansed my skin really well and it was left feeling fresh clean and toned. The wipes did everything I hoped for and after applying some moisteriser I felt and looked much better and ready to face the day. My skin got on really well with these wipes, there were no problems with sensitivity and they feel gentle enough for me to use on a regular basis. I would definately buy these again although I would probably try and stock up on them while they are on this special offer.
So at the end of every day you need to take your make up off and as I like nivea I decided to give these ago for once and to be honest I quiet like them they are not perfect but they do the job. Each wipe os pretty gentle on the skin and removes make up such as foundation, eye shadow and mascara although I have found with some really black mascara and heavily applied mascara it only really removes the top layer meaning you will end up having panda eyes in the morning. Another negative to this make up wipe is the fact that the wipes dry out really quickly so you need to make sure the wipes are tightly sealed after use. These refreshing wipes leave your face feeling fresh and tingley I would recommed washing your face after using this product as it may leave your skin feeling a bit sticky and weird. There usally is 25 wipes in each pack and at half price most of the time meaning these wipes cost around £1.49 they are not bad for every day use.
Firstly I'd like to point out that I'm not loyal to these cleansing wipes. I tend to buy whatever appears to be the best deal, more often than not in the supermarket. I have however learnt not to buy the cheapest wipes as I believe they don't perform as well as I'd like them to. Nivea is a trusted brand and I use a few other Nivea products, which I have never had any problems with. The wipes are presented in a light blue packaging and according to the label, the cleansing wipes, "Cleanse, tone and invigorate in one easy step. Removes make up and waterproof mascara for a fresh skin feeling." The label also clearly shows that the wipes contain Lotus Extract and Vitamins and are alcohol free. There are 20 wipes in a pack, but I bought a 'double' pack, therefore receiving 40 wipes. I think 20 wipes is a good amount to have in one pack as if there are any more and the seal is left open, this may cause the wipes in the pack to dry out and therefore not cleanse the face when required to do so. These wipes are for normal and combination skin which I consider myself to have. According the back of the pack, my skin is left feeling refreshed and it will remove waterproof mascara. I do believe that my skin is left refreshed and the smell reminds me of a holiday, for some reason, but I don't think the wipes remove all traces of mascara. I have woken up the next day after having used these wipes, to find small amounts of mascara still visible and smudged into my face. I do recommend the wipes, as they are certainly some of the better wipes that I have used and are particularly good if you are buying them to use on holiday, to save taking lots of toiletries, or if you are in a rush (which as a student, I usually am) but I prefer after having used a wipe, to use a gentle eye make-up remover (I love Body Shop's Camomile Gentle eye make-up remover, plus it lasts for ages!) just to remove the more stubborn mascara. Great value, particularly if they are in on offer in either the supermarkets or popular chemists.
I trust Nivea, I use their shaving gel regularly and always get very good results. I actually think a lot of men are scared to approach the brand because it seems so feminine! Nivea usually come up good though and I am yet to discover a product by them which leaves me really unhappy. The refreshing cleansing wipes are great to have in the bathroom or at the side of bed, as a refreshing alternative to a box of tissues. Using wet wipes is a lot more hygienic than smearing that same old flannel back and forth over your face every day. A wipe means you use it just once then dispense of, whereas a flannel will just gather the dirt and can lead to skin problems down the line. A pack of these contains about 25 wipes which should see you through a month, if you use one a day. When you take them out of the pack you will notice the subtle smell of freshness which greets you. It is not clinical or overly medicated though, which means they are great for sensitive skin. My skin is prone to flaring up, so I have to be careful what I put on it. The wipes pick up traces of dirt, make-up and grime which has been clogging the face throughout the day. Soft to the touch, they are non abrasive and won't leave the face feeling sore afterwards. A single wipe will suffice at the end of the day and both sides can be used. I suggest using one side to get the worst off, then use the other to refine and soothe the delicate areas. The wipes can also be used on other areas of the body, such as armpits, behind the ears, to wipe off mud on knees or even to freshen the feet at the end of the day. A little dear though, a pack will cost about three pounds, but very handy to have to hand.
I am definately a fan of face wipes and I have tried alot on the market. These, by far, are my favourites! There are often 2 for 1 offers on Nivea wipes and although they may seem pricy you can often get a bargain in places like wilko's and superdrug, I buy several packets at once to stock up. They come in a blue packet with a resealable sticky label on the front, you pull back the label and pull out the face wipe, this is the first thing I like about these, they actually reseal and retain their moistness unlike alot of other face wipes I have tried. The wipe itself is very soft and wet and you only need one to remove a days makeup, this again is unlike other wipes, which often feel dry and require two or more to really feel like you have removed all your makeup. I have dry skin and I have often found other face wipes to be a bit harsh, especially around the eye area. These wipes, however, remove makeup extremely well (and I wear quite alot of eye makeup) without irritating my skin. They smell really nice too and when you have wiped your whole face, it is left feeling very refreshed and smelling great. The only downside with face wipes is that it often doesn't feel like you have 'cleaned' your face properly, as well as you would with water and face wash. This is the problem with all face wipes though and if you are going to use face wipes, these are, in my opinion, the best ones to use! I have combination skin, dry on my cheeks and forehead and greasy around my nose, and I always moisturise, so I do use moisturiser after I have used these wipes, but they leave your skin feeling really soft so if you didn't suffer with dry skin you probably wouldn't even need to moisturise. I am quite lazy with my beauty routine, in that I don't have one! I often go to bed in my makeup, so I always keep Nivea face wipes next to my bed so I can sleep with a clean face, its also nice not to wake up with a pillow covered in mascara! They are also good at waking you up in the morning as they are so refreshing! These face wipes have come everywhere with me, they have been to festivals, travelling, and when im staying at friends, they are so useful for cleansing, freshening up on long journeys and as hand wipes. Fantastic product with multiple uses, and they leave your skin, feeling, looking and smelling great, what more can you want?!

The product is for normal and combination skin and it doesn't dry my skin out but just leaves it fresh though I do like to use a moisturiser after using it. Even when I don't wear make up I like to wipe on round my face to freshen up. They are definitely worth the money and I would recommend them to anyone due to their great value and quality.
It's not true that taking care of your skin should just be a female practice, it's so important for all of us. That's why, as a man, I fully recommend these wipes! To start with, they are kept in a compact packet, rather than a bulky box or tube, and this makes them ideal to use at home but also on the road, as they take up no space. The wipes themselves are ideal for a kick in the morning to leave your face feeling refreshed and revitalised, as they are moist and cool. They are also ideal before bed because they wipe away all the impurities your face has picked up over the day that causes spots. They dry out your skin to reduce excess oil produced by your face and this helps reduce the chances of suffering from spots. They also smell absolutely wonderful too! I think they are ideal for anyone who wants to take good care of their skin, anywhere, anytime!
