Simple Facial Cleansing Wipes
Advantages: Soft and gentle on skin
Isn't it amazing how some products are packaged up to look like something outstanding and are priced at a gasp-producing level yet fail to please yet something which looks fairly plain and simple and is well within budget can be so pleasing to use? I cannot believe the huge variation in price between some beauty products and how the huge price difference doesn't actually reflect in quality.
I bought the Simple Cleansing Wipes a few years ago because they were cheap and I was trying to save money. There is nothing that really makes this packet stand out on the shelf and that is what the Simple range goes for- simplicity! The packet is pale green and white so looks very natural.
It is easy to open, it opens like baby wipes with a little slip at the top which peels off and then can be stuck back down to keep the wipes moist after use. It is important that you do put the peel strip back down as if you don't then the wipes do dry out, not all of them but about the first two in the packet.
When you pull a wipe out it automatically starts to pull the next one out which makes it easy to get them out especially if you have wet or oily hands. These can then just be tucked back in after use.
The wipe is very thin and soft so it is very gentle against the skin. I have very sensitive skin and often find products which are treated have a bad effect on my skin and cause rashes but when I use these I have no adverse reactions so they are very gentle to the skin as well as just to touch.
They are not very moist just damp enough to run over your face easily and not leave a wet patch behind. It isn't as damp as the baby wipes we use but this doesn't mean that it won't take the make up away beneath it.
When I wipe these over my make up I find that the majority of it comes off with ease and I just need to apply a bit more pressure on certain areas such as my cheeks where there may be several layers of make up- bronzer, highlighter and foundation so sometimes a bit more pressure is needed to get it off but it never hurts or irritates.
If I have a full face of make up I find that I need to use one wipe to get the majority off and then another one to just ensure I have taken everything off. With general every day make up just one wipe is plentiful.
I find that it's really effective to remove make up and to cleanse skin. After I have used this my skin does feel softer and smoother. People often say to me that you shouldn't use facial wipes as it just moves bacteria around the face but I find if I don't use these then the condition of my face is actually worse so I don't think that it has that effect upon me.
I really rate these wipes, I have used other brands which are much more expensive and I still do sometimes buy them when they are on offer but I do usually stick to these now as I find that they do the job just fine and make my skin feel soft to touch. As far as I'm concerned they're perfect!
Summary: I like these
