      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I would buy them again and thought they were quite good.

      I came across a couple of packs of moist facial wipes from the Superdrug brand in my large stash of toiletries at home recently, with this review outlining my experiences of using the "Superdrug Camomile Facial Cleansing Wipes."

      The current price for these particular wipes is only 99 pence, a price that I feel reflects excellent value for money, particularly as the generously-sized pack contains 25 individual wipes. You can purchase the product in store, or online at www.superdrug.com, where postage costs may apply.

      The plastic pack is coloured in a bright yellow shade, allowing for an eye-catching appearance, but I feel there are more notable points about the packaging than this, such as the fact that the label closure on the front of the pack has remained extremely stick throughout the time these wipes have been used. This has meant that the wipes have been kept moist and fresh, without them becoming dried out and unsuitable for purpose. This is a significant fault I have encountered with rival brands of facial wipes in the past, so I was pleased that the Superdrug product was superior in terms of it's packaging.

      The wipes themselves are fairly plain; they are white in colour, and have a slightly square-ish shape. The wipes are folded when removed from the pack, but they have been packaged very neatly in their plastic housing, so when I pull a wipe out of the pack's opening there is only ever one wipe removed at a time, without the wipes coming out in an irksome bundle. There is a faintly 'floral' type of aroma present when the wipe is being unfolded ready for use, but this is fairly subtle.

      I like the feel of the Superdrug Camomile Wipes, finding they are ever-so-slightly textured, to allow for a gentle cleanse to be administered with each use. I find that the wipes' texture feels pleasant on the skin, and they are neither too 'wet' or too cold, so I find that my skin never feels uncomfortable during use; all too often, I find that my face feels cold and is left with an unpleasant 'slicked' feeling after using facial wipes, but these issues have never been present with the Superdrug alternative.

      The wipes claim: "For all skin types. 4 in 1 cleanser, eye make-up remover, toner and moisturiser" on the front of the pack. I personally always cleanse my face with a separate cleanser product, and likewise, I use a good quality moisturiser as my skin is prone to outbreaks of dryness. For this reason, the wipes main purpose within my skincare routine is to remove make-up and eye make-up from the skin prior to cleansing. I do find that the wipes cope very well with this requirement, with all traces of facial make-up being lifted effortlessly from the skin's surface. I do find that thicker or denser make-up, such as foundation, for example, will occasionally require me to use a second (clean) wipe to effectively remove all traces. For lighter make-up, however, such as powder, eyeliner or blusher, for example, I do find that the Superdrug Camomile Wipes cope very well with the removal of such products, and so I really don't have much cause for complaint. I do feel that the wipes' effectiveness may be dependent on the thickness and 'robustness' of the make-up they are required to remove, but for my own requirements, I find they work very well.

      The only main grumble I have is in terms of the wipes' effectiveness at removing eye-make up. Whilst I find that all traces of eyeliner, mascara and coloured powders are removed effectively, I do find that the Superdrug Camomile Wipes have a texture that is best suited to removing facial make-up. Whilst I couldn't confess to finding the Wipes' texture being overly harsh or abrasive, I do feel it is slightly more textured than most other brands of facial wipes that I use on a regular basis, and this leaves me feeling slightly cautious, resulting in me 'dabbing' at the eye area rather than 'sweeping' the wipe across the eyelid as I would normally do. This is not a huge issue, but I have noticed that I do feel caution when bringing the Camomile Wipe up to my eye to remove the make-up applied there, whereas with other brands of wipe I am able to literally 'rub' the wipe over the eye without any hesitation. To be clear, I have not suffered from any irritation at my eye area, but I must confess that I do feel hesitant towards these particular wipes being suitable for my delicate eye area, although other consumers may find they are perfectly suitable.

      On the plus side, I do find that the wipes are perfectly suited for my sensitive skin type, and I have never encountered any irritation to my face. Likewise, I have never noticed the Camomile Wipes causing any acceleration to the dryness I will often experience. Another plus point for me, is that the wipes have a rather 'fuss free' nature that has allowed them to slot quite neatly into my everyday skincare routine. This has meant that they have been used without leaving any 'tackiness' on the skin, nor has the subtle 'floral' scent ever felt obtrusive or over-bearing. I like too how I am unable to detect any hint of the scent on my skin after use.

      All in all, I do feel these wipes are a worthwhile purchase, and I would certainly buy them again. I did feel slightly cautious about the product's suitability for the sensitive skin around the delicate eye area, which I felt was down to the wipes' texture. Other than this point, however, I felt they performed well and offered excellent value for money. Based on these results, I feel a four star rating in the product score is appropriate, on this occasion.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Overall for 99p they are really great value and give "expensive" brands a run for their money

        =Superdrug Facial Wipes With Camomile=

        These are an own brand range from Superdrug, they are Facial Wipes with Camomile. The wipes are described as a "4 in 1", meaning they cleanse, remove eye make-up, tone and moisturise the skin.


        =Price and Size=
        The pack has 25 wipes and is priced at 99p, the pack is colour cordinated to match the other items of Superdrug in the Camomile brand. The packet is bright yellow with a camomile flower on the front, so it can't really be missed. The packs have a resealable tab.

        =Boots No 7=
        I will say that Boots no 7 are one of my favourite wipes, but I do feel at £7 for a packet they are a luxury treat.

        =Aroma=
        Once I opened the wipes, I immediately smelt a pleasant aroma, it was light and refreshing floral aroma.

        =Alternative Choices=
        These are also available in cucumber (green packet) and unfragranced, (blue packet), these are also both at 99p.

        =Using the wipes=
        I tend to use one wipe for my eye makeup remover, although it not so heavy, but with eye shadow, liner and mascara, I find that by the time I have done the 2 eyes, quite a bit of the wipe has been used, so I get a 2nd one for the rest of my face, at 4p a wipe it is an economical move, and not a bank buster.

        =4 in 1=
        -Eye makeup remover- I found this to be better than what I thought I would be and I was pleased to say that it removed my eye makeup without much difficulty

        -Tone, Cleanse- I felt these two elements worked really well, as my skin came up refreshed, clean, and I was surprised at the grime on the wipe, the first time I used the wipes I thought that I hadn't washed my face for a week.

        -Moisturise- I felt that this was the weakest part of the wipe, as although my skin felt clean, when I put my own moisturiser on later in the day it soaked into my face as normal.

        =After the end of the packet=
        I found a packet lasted my about 2 weeks, so i was really pleased, as they were really cost effective, even when I used the wipes without having any make up on, I still felt that the moisturiser was still lacking, but apart from that I was really impressed with the wipes


        =Don't use for a couple of days=
        Even if I don't use the wipes for a couple of days, I find that they are really moist, and also the last moist is as damp as the first wipe.

        =Would I buy again=
        I would buy these again, and I have purchased them for 99p they are excellent value for money.

        =Would I recommend=
        I would highly recommend these wipes, there great value for money, do what they say (3 out 4 ain't bad), and have a lovely aroma.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great for 99p

        I am not particularly brand loyal when it comes to facial wipes and tend to buy whatever is on offer on the time. Whilst shopping in Superdrug I spotted a pack of their own brand wipes priced at just 99p and decided to give them a try. I picked up the camomile although I am not too sure if other variety's are available.

        Superdrug's Facial Cleansing wipes come in a bright yellow plastic packaging, the front clearly shows the brand star logo and product name along with the claim that these wipes cleanse, tone, moisturise and remove eye make - up. They are suitable for all skin types.

        General information is given on the back of the pack including ingredients, warnings and directions for use. Each pack contains approximately 25 wipes and they should be used within three months of opening. The product is Paraben free and suitable for vegetarians, they also carry the BUAV approved logo.

        The wipes themselves are white in colour and of a standard size, they have no pattern on them. They have a lovely clean fresh camomile fragrance which I find really refreshing.

        I have been using Superdrug's camomile facial cleansing wipes for around two weeks now, generally at night before I go to bed. I find facial wipes the quickest most convenient way to remove make up and this is the primary reason I use them. Superdrug's wipes worked brilliantly at removing my make up, even waterproof mascara, only one facial wipe was needed to remove all trace of make up from my face. There was no need to scrub, I simply wipe gently. My skin was left feeling clean, quite refreshed and soft too. Although Superdrug claim that these wipes moisturise I did use my own moisturiser after each use as I didn't feel the wipes alone worked all that well at moisturising my skin. I never experienced any adverse reactions whilst using the product, in fact I found them to be rather mild and gentle.

        They worked brilliantly at removing make up but I find the 4 in 1 claim a little unbelievable and I do not believe any facial wipe can replace the need to cleanse, tone and moisturise separately. Overall I was happy with these facial wipes and would certainly buy them again especially at the bargain price of 99p.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Reliable for cleansing and refreshing the face, at a good price.

        These facial wipes from Superdrug come in a packet of 25 wipes, priced at 99p. The wipes are described as "4 in 1", meaning that they're supposed to cleanse, remove eye make-up, tone and moisturise the skin.

        In my experience of using the wipes, they do three of these things quite well. They are effective as cleansers and toners, leaving the skin clean and feeling fresh. They also do the heavier job of removing eye make-up - I tend to use two wipes when removing make-up, one for my eyes and one for the rest of my face, but at this price that's ok, and I would have to use two wipes even with a more expensive brand.

        I'm not convinced that the wipes have any great moisturising properties. They tend to leave my skin feeling like it has been toned, and I follow this up immediately with a moisturiser. Perhaps they would have enough of a moisturising effect on very young skin, but I won't be going without my moisturiser any time soon. To be honest, though, this doesn't take away from the value of the wipes, and I'm happy to go on using them for cleansing and toning purposes, as well as for those times when you just want to quickly freshen up.

        The camomile wipes have a pleasant, fresh floral aroma, and come in a bright yellow packet with a resealable tab. These wipes are also available with a cucumber scent (green packet) and unscented (blue packet). I like all three varieties.

        I sometimes find the wipes to be of uneven moisture, as if they've been stored on their side and some of the moisture has run to one side of the wipe. However, again this isn't a big problem, as they're moist enough overall to do what they're supposed to. The wipes feel slightly textured, which I like as it feels as if the skin is getting cleaned properly.

        All in all, I can't fault these wipes for their performance in relation to cost. Facial wipes can be very expensive depending on brand, and I just don't see the point in spending £7 a packet when these are just as effective. They're suitable for vegetarians and vegans to use too.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Brilliant wipes, recommended

        At the grand old age of 20 I keep being reminded by various people whether it be my friends, my mum or my sisters that I really must start to look after my skin. I'm very lazy when it comes to skin care...I have all the products I can just never be bothered to use them!

        One thing I do use on a regular basis though is some sort of wipe just to freshen up my face and to remove any make up. I usually use the Tesco brand but these ran out some weeks ago so when I went into town last week I thought I really had better get a replacement!

        I went into Superdrug and started browsing their wipes. Branded wipes are so expensive, some being up to £4 for just 25 wipes and I almost always pull 2 out of the packet by accident so these really wouldnt prove to be economical! Therefore, I was drawn to their Superdrug 'Essentials' range.

        Initially I thought there were just 2 types of the wipe (cucumber fragrance and camomile) however when I got home I realised that one of the packets I had picked up was fragrance free so there are obviously 3 types! The other packet I got were the camomile ones.

        The reason I went for these was that they promised a 4 in 1 wipe. They are meant to be an eye make up remover, a cleanser, toner and moisturiser in one. I thought these would be perfect for me as I am so lazy when it comes to my skin care! I paid just 99p per packet of 25 wipes.

        When it came to bedtime that night I decided to try out the new wipes. I opened the packet with the easy open tab and pulled out a wipe. The wipe came out easily and only one came out so I didnt end up wiping my face with 2! There is a slight scent of camomile but this is not overpowering and it is quite pleasant.

        I was really impressed with how moist the wipe was. I wiped it over my face and was immediately impressed with the amount of make up it removed with the first go. I also used it on my eyes where all my mascara, eyeliner and eyeshadow was immediately removed with no scrubbing or stretching of the skin. The next morning I used the wipes again to freshen up my skin and no more make up came off so they must have removed every trace.

        The wipes leave my skin really soft and smooth and it feels really good. My skin had been very dry on my face and was flaking but just using a few of these wipes has sorted it out and now it is soft and got plenty of moisture. I was suffering from quite a few spots last week and these have also disappeared.

        It is worth noting that even though these wipes have been open over a week now, the tab seals back down on the packet really well and the wipes are still moist inside.

        I love these wipes, I think these are better than the Tesco ones I used to use and I will continue to buy these. For 99p I think they are a bargain and they are brilliant quality. Recommended.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Very handy to keep in your bag for when travelling.

        I like to have cleansing wipes in the bathroom to remove make up and, I also usually carry a smaller pack of wipes around with me. These can be baby wipes or the facial type, as long as they'll fit into my handbag. The wipes that I choose to use when out and about are for emergency use. I do lots of travelling, as a passenger, in the car, and often quite a few miles to unknown places, as we (my husband is the driver) go to shows and competitions with my teenaged daughter. I have lots of things in my bag for 'just in case' reasons, such as wiping hands after snacking in the car, wiping faces in hot weather on return journeys, and spills. They have even been used for wiping the window. We had lost our way and had to park under a tree, somewhere in Kent, when a bird was very rude and messed our window. I was lucky really though, as the front passenger window was open, where I was seated, and the mess was very near. I wouldn't have been amused. Anyway, Superdrug's wipes helped out. They are very versatile indeed!


        Some months ago I purchased a couple of packs of these wipes, Superdrug facial wipes camomile. They are for all skin types and state on the front of the pack that these wipes are 4 in 1, cleansing, eye make-up remover, toner and moisturiser (I hopee the car appreciated this!) I'm not sure of the price I paid but believe it was about seventy-five pence for one pack. I know these seemed a good buy at the time. The pack contains forty wipes.


        I'll try various brands of wipes and change a lot. Mainly, I look for a bargain but, after some bad buys I tend to pick brands that I know and trust, or stores' own brands.


        Travel wipes last a long time with me, mainly becase they are often carried around but not so often needed, just there 'in case.' I am now nearing the end of the second pack so feel able to give a fair opinion on these.


        I was impressed with these wipes. In fact, I prefer these to more expensive makes and would definitely buy again. I find many wipes dry and what I really hate is when the fibres come off, or you can feel them on your face. These wipes are quite smooth and, for me, are just right in their wetness. They don't drip but aren't too dry either.


        They remove make- up well, even eye make- up. A couple of these wipes do a decent job of removing make-up and refreshing the face. After use my skin feels clean.


        I also enjoy the fragrance of these wipes. Camomile proves calming and is a pleasant aroma.


        You might also be interested, or NOT, of someone else who tested these wipes, although I didn't ask for his opinion, or autograph! During the summer, and this was on one of those hot days, if you remember. I was sitting in my parked car at our local high street, waiting while my husband popped into Greggs, when I noticed a man walking along with his young son, both eating dripping ice creams. The boys ice cream was rapidly melting and he wasn't keeping up with it. Dad looked a bit flustered, I thought he was thinking, what am I going to clean him up with and I've got to keep hold of his hand while I do it. I idly thought that I recognised the man, as I wondered should I offer him some wipes. My husband returned and said it was Ronnie O'Sullivan, the very talented snooker player. Of course. I wound down the window and gave him some wipes. I hope they did a good job on cleaning the sticky ice cream.


        These wipes are dermatologically tested and approved by Superdrug skincare specialist (according to the pack)


        Superdrug wipes are suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Superdrug is against animal testing.


        INGREDIENTS:

        aqua, propylene, glycol, polysorbate 20, disodium cocoamphodippropionate, phenoxyethanol, tetrasodium EDTA, parfum, isopropyl, myristate, panthenol, chamomilla recutitia flower (camomile) etract, methylparaben, citric acid, sodium citrate, 2-bromo-2 nitropropane,-1-3-diol, methylchloroisothiazolione, methylisothiazolinone, butylparaben, isobutylparaben, propylparaben, ethylparaben.



        These wipes come in a bright yellow plastic sealed pack, which makes them easy to find in a full handbag.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          For the price, a great pack of wipes

          Like most Superdrug own-brand beauty products, the Essentials Camomile range is ultra cheap and cheerful, and often on offer. As well as these facial wipes, the range includes a face cream, toner and eye make-up remover, and all products come in at around a quid or so.

          The pack of wipes is bright yellow and very simple - definitely no frills here! While many packs of facial wipes contain 25 wipes, this pack contains 40, making it even better value for money - just a few pence per wipe!

          But of course you get what you pay for and, as you may expect for this price, the wipes are thin, quite small and a bit flimsy. They are not very soft and actually feel a little rough on the skin. I do like the smell though which is fresh and summery.

          The pack claims the wipes are 4-in-1 as they cleanse, remove eye make-up, tone and moisturise. Well, I would agree that they do at least two of these - cleanse and remove eye make-up (although you could argue that this is just one thing!). However I wouldn't say these wipes are great at toning or moisturising, and I always put moisturiser on after use as otherwise my skin would feel a bit dry and tight.

          Despite these shortcomings, you really can't complain too much about these wipes for the price, and I would almost definitely buy them again.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Cheap and cheerful, they get the job done!

            So at 75p I'll be honest, i wasn't expecting much. But if you just need something to get your slap off at the end of the night, these are for you. I always use facial wipes because they're just so much easier and more effective than cream or lotion cleansers, and you don't end up with thousands of cotton pads, just one easy wipe. I don't see the point in paying crazy loads for them either, I just want something that will get my make up off.

            These do that just great. The pack doesn't feel that thick, but there's 40 wipes in there, so they'll last you over a month (for 75p, that's pretty good!). The wipes are a bit small; for a regular day's make-up they're fine, it'll all come off, but if you've had a big night and you've got a lot of make-up on, you might need to use two.

            It says on the front that they are four in one; they are cleanser, eye make up remover, toner, and moisturiser. I think this is over-reaching, they get your make up off, but only using these isn't going to give you glowing skin, I always wash my face and moisturise afterwards, but you can just whack on some moisturiser afterwards and you're set.

            They smell quite nice considering they're dirt cheap, and they'll get even the most stubborn of waterproof mascaras off without leaving you with panda eyes, something I find a real problem with cream or lotion cleansers. They don't make your skin sting (something I've found with a LOT of other face wipes), and are absolutely fine to use around your eyes. if you have crazy sensitive skin, there are fragrance free ones available at the same price, they are in a blue packet.

            All in all I think these are a great bargain. They get the job done, and for only 75p. I'm not sure if 75p is the long term price, but they aren't going to get more expensive than £1, so for £3 you can stock up for quite a while! Thanks for reading, I hope this was helpful.

            4 stars

            Now, i am sure you all saw my rantings the other week about the dismal clean and clear facial wipes i bought.


            Well, unsurprisingly they ran out today, as theres only about 2.1 wipes in each pack (ok slight exaggeration). So i headed down to my local superdrug and found these beauties.


            To begin with i was absolutely staggered. At just £1 these are an absolute bargain. I was really impressed with this price as all the other own brand make wipes i have seen have been more than this and this is why i have always stuck to the more branded items.


            However, i do not need something that is going to rip my face off. I do not need hydrogen peroxide to keep my spots at bay anymore, im 19, i only get the occasional one so i need a product just to wipe my face at the end of a sweaty night in the clubs.


            So, having just came back from football this afternoon, i whacked one of these on to try and get rid of the nasty sweat all over my face.


            I was really impressed, it cleansed my skin brilliantly and even left me smelling relatively nice. This made me happy.


            What made me happier was the fact that some time later the one offending spot that i had seemed to be a lot less red and also a lot smaller. This means that they do actually have some spot cleansing properties in them.


            So, what can i say, if your just looking for something to remove your make up or sort yourself out after a heavy night. Do not bother spending about £6 on the clearasil top notch stuff, head to superdrug and get on to these pads, there really worth the cash.


            Then again, at just £1 its still worth it even if they werent!!!

            Advantages

            • "Plenty of them"
            • Cheap

            Disadvantages

            • "Can make skin feel too toned at times"
            • "struggle to remove heavy make up"
            • "Quite small"

            Ok for emergencies!

            When it comes to using face wipes to remove make up etc off my face I'm a fan of the concept and not the reality usually. I'd much rather grab a wipe, smear it over my face and flush it or bin it than have to use cleanser and a separate toner as it's quicker and in my view and experience and therefore less fussy.

            However wipes, well usually I have issues with them. I find that they are either too dry or too wet. That once opened even if I reseal them properly that they dry out and their biggest crime? I find they usually struggle to remove ten ton of slap and I end up using 12 wipes or something daft making them anything other than fuss free and quite an expensive thing to use. I trust my cleanser and toner and feel that's generally the best way of removing make up etc usually.

            However I like a drink. I like going out on dates and out with my friends and that usually means going out binge drinking and getting wrecked in some bar and on to clubs and stuff. I wear the above mentioned ten ton of make up and even when drunk I come in and try to remove my make up and once I had an accident with a tube of immac as I believed it to be a face cleanser and rubbed some over my face and lost my eye brows and eye lashes through it (I kid you not) and that's why in the main I purchase wipes for these occasions! I put a packet on my pillow before I go out and that way no horror stories happen and I know what I'm doing better and it has to be said wipes at this time are brilliant for me lol.

            Taking off my make up is an incredibly important thing to me. I do suffer combination skin quite badly. Its dry in some areas with a greasy t-zone and very prone to spots that hurt and I do have black heads and white heads too. I have aging discoloration, wrinkles and frown lines and basically it's tricky skin not to upset.

            My biggest problem at the moment is with open pores and I give them a gentle squeeze and clear liquid comes out of them but they don't close for me! My skin is simply shocking! So all that I have to deal with on a daily basis and I'm not happy anyway with my skin but make up removal is so very important to me because once, drunk (again lol) I removed the majority of my make up with a cheap wipe. I was bladdered but I did my best and I went to bed and when I woke up the following day I had left some mascara in between my lashes and the rim of my eye (accidentally, it was only a really small amount the wipe just hadn't removed as I had thought. My eye socket completely almost blew up. It was twice it's size, puffy and bloated and the inside rim was dragging on my eyeball. Talk about pain and that's when I ran to the Dr's and he said I had an allergic reaction to the mascara as he cleaned out my eye with some eye wash stuff.

            So when it comes to eye make up and removal after all that I really do need good stuff. When I saw these Superdrug one's I never threw them in the basket without thinking as I do most of my toiletries. I gave it some thought first I can tell you and decided they were worth a go as they sounded good to me.

            The Packaging:

            The wipes come in a bright yellow oblongish plastic packet with a resealable yellow piece of plastic you simply open and get your wipe out of and when your done it presses back in to place securely. On that piece of plastic in small black and orange writing I'm told they are Superdrug, Skin Essentials, Facial Wipes, Camomile For Dry Skin And Moisturiser All In All In One. On the back of the pack I'm told a bit about the product, directions for use, ingredients are listed, contact details for Superdrug are given and I'm told that there are 40 wipes in the packet and all in all its decent, robust and informative packaging and I do appreciate the fact the reseal bit does stay sticky which keeps my wipes fresh and moist.

            A Bit About The Product (According To The Information On The Packet):

            These soft and gentle wipes with extract of camomile will effectively remove make-up from the face and around the delicate eye area whilst toning and leaving your skin moisturised, all in one easy action.

            Soft and strong, these cloth wipes are pH balanced to leave your face feeling clean and fresh whilst helping to maintain the moisture balance of the skin.

            Directions For Use:

            Peel back carefully and remove wipe. Gently wipe over face, eyes and neck. Reseal to keep wipes moist.

            My Experience Of Using The Wipes:

            Well when you pull one out they do come out one at a time. I use mine to remove a full face of make-up including glitter eye-liners and waterproof mascara and all sorts as I'm a complete make up fiend. I also use them to simply freshen up my face or when I'm just out of the bath or shower as my face always feels tight when it's been splashed with water.

            The wipe itself is quite small. I was shocked when I picked them up in Superdrug and read there was 40 in the packet and it's only when you see one you realise how come. If your familiar with the leading brands facial wipes that are on the market this is width wise about the same size but not as long making it an oblong shaped wipe. It isn't tiny but I think it is smaller. It's still white in colour and like a cloth material but you can almost see through it making it again, thinner than the leading brands (as a rule) and just holding it, it feels quite economy though it isn't rubbish and it is still very strong and robust and doesn't fall apart when using it or anything.

            The smell is quite fragrant in a natural way. I guess it is sweet camomile in smell and suitable in my view for male or females to use (after all they are face wipes!). They simply smell very clean and fresh and once you've used the wipes the smell vanishes from your skin almost immediately anyway.

            When using them the liquid hits the skin. The wipes are moist though not soaking or dripping wet and the wipes goes over the skin really well with no dragging or horrible feeling.

            Do they remove make up? Yes (ish). It takes me about 5-6 wipes and even then I feel that if I used just one more wipe more rubbish would come off my face. With an abundance of wipes (and patience) then yes you can remove really stubborn, hard wearing make up. The wipes don't irritate the skin and I certainly haven't noticed any flare ups of spots or any skin difference at all since using them. So yes they do remove make up if your willing to really work with them but if you think one wipe and your done then your very much mistaken, the only good thing about it is that although I'm rubbing my skin quite hard the wipes don't hurt me or make me sore faced.

            They are ok for a quick freshen up and I have noticed when I've popped out and been shopping etc, I've got in and wiped my face over with one of these and my face does feel cleaner instantly and sometimes I can see a bit of dark smudgy stuff come off my skin (dirt and oil) though not loads and I don't think they are deep cleansing because of this.

            However... these are rather greasy and they are made for people with dry skin. I do suffer with dry skin on my face in this weather but I just feel that these are a bit too full of moisturisers. I prefer to cleanse my skin and CHOOSE a moisturiser of my own instead of using these and then applying yet more of the stuff as well which upsets my greasy t-zone.

            Also after using them my face feels really tight, particularly my cheek area. Again there is a toner in these wipes and they really do that job, but in my case too much as my skin feels a little bit uncomfortable (though that feeling wears off after time), for the duration of that feeling I experience my skin feels a little clammy to the touch. So I'm not getting if they are for people who have dry skin why they tone so much really as skin feels really tight!

            Overall:

            Not the worse make up removing method I've ever used but totally unsuitable for me really. All I want is a product to remove my make up etc and I get cleanser, toner and moisturiser all in one and not sure how they manage to do a good job all together. It takes a lot of time to fully remove my make up and a lot of wipes ta boot. Yes I'd use them in emergencies but not as a regular thing I prefer a much more hassle free product that this!

            Only available in Superdrug priced at £1.29 a packet though do look out for offers within this range.
