As someone with very sensitive skin prone to eczema, even on my face, I tend to sick to a very specific range of beauty products that aren't cheap. There have been way too many times where I have broken out in a rash, even struggle g to blink because my eyelids are so sore.
Unfortunately after a particularly bad month financially, all our purchases were reduce ed to smartprice and the a pest of the cheap, including my skin care.
The wipes are in a very basic white tesco own branded packaging (a newer style than the picture here) and contain 25 wipes that can be used for leasing ane make up removal.
The wipes were quite wet which I was surprised about, as generally the cheaper the wipe, the dryer the wipe, and the material was also quite soft to the skin.
I tentatively used the wipes and even though I was being cautiously gentle, they did a good job of removing the make up with little rubbing.
The next morning I was praying for my skin to look ok, and my wishes came true, no eczema breakout and after using the full pack no problem at all. It is however very difficult to avoid panda eyes with thease wipes. Amd although I don't wear it, I can imagine them not being very good with waterproof make up.
All in all these were very good wipes and almost better than the middle of the roads wips that cost a pound or so a piece.
The Tesco value range has some excellent products, and some not so much, but they are always really great on the price! I think the Tesco value range is brilliant for anyone who is on a low budget, and helps thousands of people to get by!
We came across the Tesco value range facial wipes whilst browsing through the the store one day, and thought we would give them a go. The main thing that attracted us to the facial wipes was the price. All of the other branded wipes around them was ranging anywhere from a pound up to £5! Some of the big brand wipes were very expensive, which are no better than these wipes really.
We bought these wipes for everyday use really, we always tend to keep a couple of packs in the bathroom for our hands and our faces, and i think they are a great addition to the daily routine. They feel great on a hot day to wipe down your face with and are very good for feet too!
These wipes, in my opinion, are as good as any, they do they same job and considering the price at only 45p, they do not at all lack the quality of the other brands of wipes. The pack contains 25 wipes, which is slightly less than most, but these still work out much cheaper.
I would recommend these wipes to anyone who is currently using more expensive brands of wipes, as they really are no different to any others, they work just as well, they are just cheaper and in a plain package!
I have always been someone that takes care of my skin bad I religiously cleanse my face before bed even if I didn't wear make up that day.
I used to always use a cleanser and cotton wool but the introduction of disposable face wipes saves any messing around. I have sensitive skin and so I have always used quite expensive face cleansers but seeing these Tesco value face wipes at about £0.33 a pack of 25 I though 'what have I got to loose' so I bought a pack.
I was really impressed with these Tesco value facial wipes. They are slightly purfumed but the smell is not strong but pleasant, they worked well and didn't irritate my sensitive skin at all. The only negative I can say is that they don't work very well on waterproof mascara. In fact they literally don't touch it and my mascara stayed on fully in tact.
Despite Tesco value face wipes not being very effective on waterproof mascara these are the face wipes I always buy now. Using one per day and 25 in a packet a 33p packet lasts over 3 weeks. In comparison the majority of face wipes available are around £3 per pack so these really are great value!
All face wipes and cleansers seem to leave a residue on you skin. As a result I always rinse my face after using them up with water, dry it off and then apply a thick amout of moisturiser and generally my skin stays smooth and hydrated.
I'm terribly negligent of my skin care -I?d rather have an extra half hour in bed than properly cleanse, tone and moisturise or whatever people do nowadays. I?m especially lax at makeup removal ? after a night out and a few shandies I have a magic pillow case that removes all traces of makeup which are left once I collapse of an evening!I therefore don?t spent a lot of money on skincare (I spend it on the shandies instead) and I was delighted to see that in the Everyday Value Range Tesco Facial Wipes were just 50P! The photo shows the old Tesco Value pack ? as with all the TEV range they have been updated and feature nice little pink make-up and beauty motifs.In each pack you get 25 ? like all wipe packages there is a little resealable opening at the top to remove wipes individually and keep the remainder moist.They have a lovely smell ? the pack says they have aloe and camomile extracts, buy I can?t quite detect either in the scent. They smell very light and fresh ? other wipes I have bought tend to be a sickly sweet fragrance but these are lovely ? although they may be a little bit perfumey for some.I have not had any sensitivity at all to these wipes, and even though you are warned to avoid the eye area I rub away at old mascara with no sting whatsoever. To be so cheap they are quite substantial and on those evenings when I do remember to take off a face of make-up (usually the nights when I am the driver and have laid off the drinks) one is sufficient to do the lot.I took some away on an urgent trip recently and found they were great for a quick all-round freshening up whilst travelling, and now keep a pack in my bag for when I need a handy wipe for hands or face. On the subject of driving, I also gave the dusty inside of my car a bit of a clean with a couple while I was sitting waiting for my MOT ? and they brought the dashboard up a treat I must say.The pack advises to use with 3 months but even I?m going to get through a pack quicker than that. Users are also advised not to flush them down the loo.If you like a bargain and are not bothered by sensitive skin I would definitely recommend giving these a try.I?m no great authority on skin care, and don?t take much time or effort on my own (probably too late anyway) but these are easy, pleasant to use and effective.Passed the MOT by the way! Yay!Thanks for reading! Also posted on Ciao under same username.
I bought these wipes for my handbag so that I could freshen up and remove my makeup on the go. Originally my friend lent me one whilst I was stopping over hers for the evening and I was more impressed with the product, I didn't even realise that they were a supermarket own brand makeup remover wipe.
The packaging as you can imagine was quite dull, however they look a lot different now that from the image displayed above. The wipes come in a white dispensable packet with little purple images plastered over the front. It's not very glamorous, but it's an improvement from the original design. The packet contains 25 white wet wipes and meet the average size of a makeup remover wipe you'd find in a drug store (maybe a little smaller.) The packet itself is quite small and can fit easily into a travel bag or handbag.
The wipe itself doesn't have much of a fragrance which is great for me as I have sensitive skin and less fragrant chemicals are better for me personally. Whilst I use these wipes for removing my makeup, they're also perfect for babies and for freshening up on a hot day. The wipes are very moist, moister than most high end brand products I've used and they take off all my makeup in one go - even waterproof mascara.
The price of this product is retailed at around 25p making the price of a wipe a single British penny! Now that's an economy price for you! Not only are these wipes great value for money, but they perform so well that it's hard to believe they're part of a Tescos own brand range. They're something that you should definitely pick up on the weekly supermarket trip.
I've recently been trying to 'downshift' as many of my regular purchases as I can - moving down a brand in terms of cost, to see which items I can buy more cheaply without compromising too much on quality. As I normally only spend about 99p on a packet of facial wipes anyway, downshifting in this case meant trying out these very cheap facial wipes from Tesco, which currently retail at 45p for a packet of 25 wipes.
The range has undergone a redesign since the packet shown above - it's not nearly so cheap and cheerless looking now. The wipes now come in packaging that's mainly white, but with lilac lettering and a pattern on the front, meaning that they're less likely to sit in your bathroom screaming "CHEAP!!!" now.
The first thing that struck me about the pack was that it was smaller than other packs of 25 wipes. I was concerned that the cheapness might mean that these were in fact mini-wipes. However, when I opened the pack it became clear that Tesco have used thinner material to produce the wipes, so they're more compact when folded. I was in two minds about the thinner wipes - on the one hand, it might mean less waste as the wipes just get thrown in the bin after use, and on the other, it did mean a slight reduction in quality as the wipes 'dragged' slightly across my face and were slightly more difficult to use than other brands.
Of course, with wipes this inexpensive there are a few chemicals on the list of ingredients, but there also appeared to be a couple of natural aloe and chamomile extracts in there. I'd say the ingredients are no better and no worse than the facial wipes I normally use. There is some artificial fragrance, which wasn't overpowering but just gave the wipes a fresh smell.
I used these wipes two at a time, which is the same as I do with other facial wipes. There were some wipes in the packet with uneven moisture levels, and the last couple of wipes in the packet were a bit dry and not much better than running a tissue over your face. However, as I mainly use wipes for a freshen up before work or to get make-up off after work, I found that for the most part these did the job - I'm not attached enough to wipes to pay the money for luxury brands.
I'm giving these value wipes 3 stars, because they mostly work as they should (less so when you get towards the end of the pack), they're certainly inexpensive and they're not that bad - I'd previously have steered clear of any facial product costing 45p, but I'd pick these up again if I was shopping in Tesco.
It's been some time since I last used one of Tesco's own brand Value Facial Wipes. The reason it's been so long was due to the fact that I bought these at what I considered at the time to be a rock bottom price of 46p for a standard pack of 25 wipes. I couldn't really believe how cheap they were and as anyone who reads my reviews regularly will be aware, I am a great fan of anything by Tesco and I use a lot of their Value Range products anyway, so I had no reason at all to assume that these facial wipes would be below par.
The packaging of these wipes was very plain and simple when I bought them though I do think that Tesco have updated their Vale Range packaging on make up and skin care lately, however, it's still fairly plain to look at. The wipes came in a plastic pouch / pack with a sticky seal on the top which had to be peeled back to get into the wipes inside the pack. The seal was sticky enough to allow me to be able to reseal it every time I'd removed a wipe.
The first thing I noticed about these wipes was that they just didn't seem to have any moisture to them at all. In fact, they were so dry that I wondered if I'd just picked a 'bad batch'. I usually turn my facial wipes upside down and rotate the pack to make sure any moisture which is inside is distributed throughout all of the wipes in the pack.
Turning these wipes over made no difference at all, however. The wipes were white, oblong shaped, strong and smelled okay and not too perfumed. They were advertised as being able to remove all traces of make up, including eye make up and also being suitable for sensitive skin. They sounded just the job but in fact they didn't work at all well for me personally. I found that I was using another wipe and then another and then another and so on, in the vain hope that eventually I might come across with a little more moisture to it.
The whole pack was as dry as a bone and this really put me off from trying another pack and buying any more. I have a friend at work who swears by these wipes and she much prefers them over the more highly priced Johnson's wipes. Se agrees with me that they are drier than Johnson's but it doesn't seem to bother her and she continues to buy these regardless.
Personally speaking, I was finding that in order to be able to remove any make up I was really having to pull and drag the wipe over my face, which really you shouldn't be expected to do if the product is advertised as a 'moist wipe'. Finally, I resorted to using these wipes alongside my bottle of facial cleansing lotion and using the two together I was able to remove my make up effectively, but this sort of defeated the object of using a wet wipe in the first place.
I really would never consider using these facial wipes again. I know I may have just bought a particularly dry pack, but they put me off enough not to bother with any more. I would give these one star out of a possible five, and really, even that is being very generous.
A very disappointing product.
**Please note that these facial wipes have been re-branded as 'Tesco Everyday Value Facial Wipes' and so the packaging has now changed from that pictured here**
I have had a massive spot issue in the past 8 weeks or so. I suffered an allergic reaction to something that my husband used and that left me with a face full of spots and feeling like I looked like an ogre! Because of this my normal skincare regime hasn't been making things any better for me either and so I've had to change things up in the hope that I can clear the rash and spots that I have had for ages now. One thing that I have changed recently is my brand of facial wipes and now I have been purchasing these Tesco Everyday Value ones for just 45p a packet. This is for 25 wipes and represents incredible value for money for me. The packaging is very straight forward really and there is a sticky tab on the front of the packet that can be peeled back and then a wipe can be removed. The wipes are interleaved so that when you remove one another is ready for removing and this sometimes means that I have to poke a wipe back in the packet to stick the tab back down. These wipes have aloe and camomile extracts, as it states on the front of the pack, and this felt very cooling for me.
Now of course as soon as I want to use one of these wipes I just undo the sticky tab and then remove a wipe. These wipes are quite damp when picking them up and that is always quite surprising to me. Even after using them for 3 weeks the wipes haven't dried out. I keep my packet in the salad crisper in my fridge for two reasons; it keeps them cool and it reminds me to use them when I'm making dinner in the evening or snacking after a night out and want to remove my make-up. These wipes are white and they are a fairly generous size as they fit in my hand nicely and are comfortable against my skin.
These wipes actually work well for removing make-up although they are not necessarily labelled as being for this purpose. I can run these along my eyes to remove eye shadow and mascara although they may not always remove all mascara. I do not have to scrub my eye lashes at all to remove mascara and as long as it isn't waterproof there is no problem getting it to come off. I tend to use a separate eye make up remover when I have heavy eye shadow or stubborn mascara to remove anyway. I find that the wipes clean off all my foundation and other products with ease and I can use the both sides as well if I need to although they are quite thin so there is usually some make-up showing on the other side by the time I go to use it. These isn't an overpowering smell to these but there is a light fresh fragrance that makes me feel like my face is clean and looks nice also.
I would say that compared to wipes that can be 10 times the price these wipes do a very good job. They are not necessarily the best wipes I have ever used and there are occasions when I still need to use my eye make up remover for more stubborn make up but despite this I am rating them 4 out of 5 stars. The size is generous and they are nice and simple to use,. These wipes clean my face well and leave it looking make-up free but refreshed. Because I keep these in the fridge they are lovely and cool on my skin which is always nice after a long day at work. I would firmly recommend these wipes for people with sensitive skin as finally my hideous patch of skin is easing off and I'm starting to look like me once again! If you want a wipe to remove slapped on make-up then these might not be for you but for me they are ideal at removing my work make up and they do everything that I would expect them too.
The packaging is good and worth another mention, after 3 weeks of work it hasn't dried out in stickiness so it is ideal for lasting until the end of a packet of wipes (which must be used within 3 months from opening).
I go through quite a lot of face wipes, normally to remove my makeup at the end of the day. They can end up quite expensive so when I spotted Tesco sold facial wipes from their value range I thought I'd give them a go to see if they were effective.
The wipes are available to buy from Tesco either in store or online depending on how you get your normal shopping. They cost 45 pence for a packet of 25 wipes. Dooyoo's picture is a little dated as Tesco have recently revamped their value range to everyday value so the packaging has changed slightly. It's now white with pinkish, purple text and little beauty icons.
To get the wipes out of the packet you have to pull back the seal on the top, take out a wipe then restick the seal again to lock in the moisture of the rest of the packet. The wipes themselves are the same size as branded wipes, they are white in colour and quite soft to the touch. On first feeling of the wipes they do feel quite dry, certainly not as wet as branded wipes.
I primarily use facial wipes to remove makeup then cleanse and moisturise separately so I don't really mind that much if the wipes aren't that good at cleaning my face. The only thing I want them to do is remove my makeup. However the dry feeling of these wipes don't particularly remove my makeup very easily. Usually branded wipes can take my makeup off effortlessly but these require a lot more pressure to remove eye makeup. If I fold the wipes in half they seem to be a little more effective but still it takes a long time to remove makeup completely.
The packaging doesn't keep the rest of the other facial wipes that wet either. Although the wipes are quite dry anyway, despite resealing the packet, the other wipes are bone dry when I want to use them so it is pretty useless.
The packet of 25 wipes only costs 45 pence so they are a lot cheaper than other facial wipes. However these don't remove my makeup well enough to purchase again and for that reason I wouldn't recommend them.
A while back, on one of my shopping trips to Tesco I noticed their value range face wipes and immediately chucked them into my basket without hesitation after seeing that they only cost 45p for a pack of 25. I figured at that price they were worth a try.
I don't use wipes on my face that often. I think your skin (especially the skin on your face and neck) deserves better treatment than only cleansing with wipes, so I do have a skin care routine that I like to follow. However, some nights, especially those nights when you have come in from a night out with friends and have had a few drinks, and definitely are not thinking about doing the whole cleanse, tone and moisturise thing before going to bed, on nights like these I would give my face a quick scrub with a face wipe, brush my teeth then go straight to bed.
I have never found a face wipe to agree with my skin. I have tried the most expensive of face wipes and have not found a single brand I'm happy with, so lots of barely used packs of wipes get passed on to my sister who is one of those lucky people who can use anything on her face with no problems. I have very sensitive skin, so most things cause my skin to flare up. On the occasion when I would use face wipes I use 'Huggies Pure' baby wipes that don't have harsh ingredients in them, so don't cause my skin to break out.
Still, just because these wipes were cheap didn't mean they wouldn't suit me. I thought they were worth a try at that price. I used these a couple of times actually, as after the first use I was impressed.
The first time I used these wipes the thing I noticed was that they didn't have a strong scent to them, which is always encouraging, as to me this means less chemicals, so less chance of causing irritation to my skin. I was eager to try these so I used them on a night when I hadn't been wearing any makeup during the day. After cleaning my face with the wipe, it started to feel very dry shortly after, but I moisturise at night after cleansing, so this wasn't a problem, a bit of moisturiser and my skin was fine. The main thing was that it hadn't caused a breakout.
The second time I used them I had been wearing full makeup through the day. The wipes seemed to take the makeup off without any problems, I then put some moisturiser on my face and went to bed. The next morning my face was blotchy and sore. I knew there wasn't anything in the wipe (chemicals etc) that caused the breakout so I can only assume the wipes didn't cleanse my skin fully which was what caused the breakout.
Sometimes if a product caused my skin to break out I would still be reluctant to tell someone else not to try it, as even though it had caused a reaction with my skin, that doesn't mean it would cause the same reaction on someone else. I do have really sensitive skin. However, as the fault with these seems to be that they don't remove makeup and dirt properly I wouldn't recommend them, and only give them one star.
Since Tesco went through their revamp over the design of their products a couple of months ago - where the packaging is much more appealing - I am finding myself buying more and more of the range due to the lower price compared to the higher branded products.
In my most recent shopping trip I came across these facial wipes on their health and beauty aisle - and decided to opt for these due to the low price (specifically designed make up removal wipes tend to be high in price) and the fact I am finding baby wipes are quite harsh on my skin on taking off the days make up.
The packets are quite plain looking, mainly white in colour and all the fonts on the front labelling are pink in colour. You are told you are looking at the Tesco Facial Wipes and there is 25 wipes per packet. The packaging is made out of plastic - which is quite durable and not easily ripped - unless you put a lot of effort into it! One thing I like about these wipes is they contain aloe and camomille extracts - which is important to me as aloe and camomille are known to be great skin care ingredients.
To get into the wipes you simply peel back the flap which appears on the front to show an opening where the wipes can easily be pulled through. The wipes, like the labelling, are just white in colour and to my surprise being a value product you find the wipes are quite wet on contact - which is something I didn't quite expect. It is very easy to pull the wipes through - they are equally laid out so you don't end up pulling through 10 wipes when you only wanted one!
The back label advises you that once opened you need to use within 3 months - so to get the most of these wipes you need to use one wipe every 3 days on average - and gives you the normal instruction not to flush the wipes but to put in the bin after use.
I had intially purchased these facial wipes as an alternative to baby wipes - as previously mentioned - for removing my make up at the end of the day as well as first thing in the morning before my make up goes on - naturally I thought thats what this product will do but further inspection on the label doesn't mention the intension is to remove make up... just seems to be normal wipes...
Further information included on the back inlcude directions for use and ingredients - and I like that I can easily spot the aloe and camomille ingredients listed there... although some of the others look very chemical so it may be worth checking the labelling before you purchase if you have any concerns... I would of expected this to smell like beautiful aloe but to me the wipes just smell like baby wipes...
For a value product I do think these wipes are quite good when you compare to the higher priced branded stuff out there - although it doesn't specify it should remove make up, it does actually remove make up very well the only issue is you need 2-3 wipes per time to do your face and get everywhere. They also work very well first thing in the morning when you wake up just as a normal facial wipe - and the benefical elements contained in the wipes do a great job at waking up my skin which is exactly what I was after - these are so much kinder on my skin than baby wipes ever were!
When covered correctly these wipes will last and not dry up and the protective flap on the front to cover the opening sticks very well instead of drying up and leaving your wipes to go dry as a result.
The wipes don't cause any sort of irration or redness after use which is great because I have known other brands to do this.
Overall I am very pleased with this - you can't complain at 45p for 25 wipes - compared to other brands... the only issue I have is that they don't remove my make up as well as I would like!
I'm not brand loyal when it comes to face wipes, I'm happy to use whichever wipes happen to be on offer, and as such I've tried absolutely loads of different ones. I've tried some which have quickly become favourites, and I've tried some which I'll never buy again no matter how cheap they are, these Tesco Everyday Value face wipes being one of the latter.
I bought them after hearing many people rave about them, and say that they were brilliant for the price. Which is just 45 pence for a pack of 25 wipes. The packaging is different to the picture above due to the Value range being rebranded as the Everyday Value range. The packaging looks a little bit classier now, and the wipes look a bit more expensive because of it.
I don't use face wipes every day, I normally use a wash off cleanser. I will use face wipes if I've ran out of cleanser, or in the evenings if I'm too tired to go through the whole cleansing and moisturising process, or to freshen my face and neck on a hot day if I'm not wearing any make up. I always take face wipes with me when I travel or stay over at a friends house.
I didn't really find that these wipes had much of a fragrance, just a very faint smell which I really could hardly distinguish. I like the beauty products that I use to have a noticeable fragrance as I think that's half the pleasure of using them. I also found these to be a little bit dryer than most other face wipes that I've dried, they were not too dry, but they were not especially damp either, and I found that the few times I did use them that the wipes dried out very quickly as well.
I found that the face wipes were effective at cleaning and cleansing my face, but only if I rubbed quite hard with the face wipe, sometimes I even had to use two wipes for my face to feel clean. If I was removing a full face of make up then I would actually need to use at least three. Normally I can just gently rub over my face with a face wipe, not so with these it was more like vigorous rubbing. As a result of the vigorous rubbing my face was left quite red and felt quite sore.
I found that these also left my face feeling quite dry and taut, I always felt like I needed to moisturise straight away after using these. If I didn't moisturise after using these, say after a night out and using these to remove my make up, then I'd wake up in the morning with dry patches of skin on my face, and I'd find that my skin was still actually quite tender. I've not got sensitive skin at all, but these actually felt very harsh on my skin, and felt like they were completely stripping my skin of any natural oils and moisture.
I only used about two thirds of the packet as face wipes, it wasn't worth torturing my skin with them, they were only 45 pence after all. I used the remainder of the packet up as just as wet wipes.
I wouldn't buy these face wipes again, they are actually not worth the money. I used far too many in one go, making them not so cheap after all, and more importantly they really didn't suit my skin.
On my recent trip to Tesco's, aimed exclusively at cramming in as many toiletries into my suitcase as Easyjet would allow (how long is it before they charge for oxygen?!?), one of the cheap items I picked up was the Tesco Value Facial Wipes.
Reasons for Purchase
Being the international jet setter that I think I am, one of the downsides of flying (and not just talking a landing here) is how dry my skin gets in-flight. After lathering every free tester of moisturizer in Duty Free before boarding, I tend a dry moist-free face a few hours after take off, just as the many dollops of Clarins, Clinique et al eventually slide off my face. Due to some angry jihadists wanting to blow the planes up or fly them into buildings, airport security restrict the liquid content taken in your hand luggage. This means for me that I like to take a facial wipe or two onto the plane to keep my skin moist, fresh and looking so young. (cough cough)
After much deliberation and without the aid of a review site like this at my fingertips, I opted for the cheapest face wipe - The Tesco Value Facial Wipe. This was considerably lower than all the other facial wipes/cleansers which ranged from 89 pence (new money) to £4. Having a bit of a hit-or-miss relationship with the Tesco Value range myself, I was more than happy to take the hit/miss with the price being just 45 pence (new money).
What You Get
For 45 pence (new money) you get 25 facial wipes/cleansers. They come in a plastic packet with a resealable plastic flap. The packaging is in the usual Tesco Value Range format in the colours of white, blue and red.
Having no make-up to cleanse (I'm naturally beautiful) I cannot comment on how deep the wipes cleanse. On opening the pack, I was instantly greeted with a slight floral fragrance; it was hardly like running naked through the flower-laden alpine meadows of Switzerland in Spring, but instead a subtle, clean and fresh smell that in no way overpowered.
The wipe was moist and easily taken from the packet, with the packet resealed with ease. On application upon the face, the wipe felt smooth to touch and left a nice, fresh and clean feel to the face. It wiped, it cleansed and my face was visibly cleaner and felt fresher than before.
Extended Product Testing
Over the course of two weeks, I managed to get through the full pack of 25 wipes. Never once did the wipes lose their freshness, their moisture and their ability to cleanse and wipe my face, leaving a fresh, clean and slightly fragrant face for others to enjoy. Sometimes with facial wipes, as the pack gets used, they lose their moistness, but I was pleasantly surprised that this was not the case with the Tesco Value Facial Wipes.
To recommend, or not to recommend....? That is the question.
Quite simply, a resounding yes to recommending this product. As I said, I cannot vouch for make-up removal, or food on the face of a baby removal, but for a very cheap facial wipe/cleanser, this more than did the job for me. I was one very satisfied customer and my only complaint is to myself, for not buying more.
At tuppence a wipe, great value on a good product.
Facial cleansing wipes are one of the best skin care products around in my opinion. They're practical, time-saving, and easy to use. I always have a couple of packs at home ready for taking off heavy make-up or a quick cleanse before bed time. These Facial Wipes are part of the Value range available exclusively at Tesco, and I snapped up a pack on a whim after seeing the low RRP of just 45 pence.
Product description: "No fancy formula, still cleanses and moisturises."
Recommended directions for use: Peel back label, remove wipe and reseal immediately. Gently wipe over face and neck avoiding the eye area. Use morning and evening as part of your daily regime.
Facial cleansing wipes are great for when I'm short on time or can't be bothered with a full on cleanse / tone / moisturise routine. I was attracted to these because of the low price, but they do not offer any special benefits and are not tailored to suit any specific skin type.
The packaging fits the standard as is for most facial wipes. They come in a plastic wrapper with a peel-back label on the top which you can then re-seal after use. Each pack contains 25 wipes, so to cost it individually this works out as a measly 2 pence per wipe. Of course one bad point is that the wipes are disposable and this is quite a wasteful sort of product when you could substitute for a re-useable flannel and cleanser combo.
To use these cleansing wipes I simply rub over my face in the same way that I would wash with a flannel. As they are already moist you can use them without water and this makes the whole process very speedy and mess free. I rub the wipe over my face, starting from the chin and working upwards so as not to pull the skin down. I do get a nice cool and fresh feeling on my face after using these wipes, however it is somewhat of a struggle to make sure that my make-up, and in particular my mascara, has been removed completely. I find that after wearing a full face of make-up I have to work quite hard to make sure that it is all taken off and I really have to scrub away at some areas to get squeaky clean results.
The wipes themselves are a basic pure white coloured cloth that has a nice moist feel to it, with no noticeable fragrance. The fabric of the wipes is quite thin and there are visible gaps in the construction of the material. However, when using them they always remain intact and have not torn or pulled at all. The wipe does feel quite rough and scratchy against my face and this is somewhat uncomfortable, especially when having to repeat the motions to ensure that my make-up is fully removed.
I think that these facial wipes actually work better when used as you would regular wet wipes. They would be great for taking away on my summer festival camping trips when I don't have access to a nice, hot bath and still want to freshen up and remove sun lotion remnants. They are also effective at cleaning up my sticky messy hands after I've been baking or crafting, but I just think they're a bit too harsh to use regularly on my face.
I think these Tesco Value Facial Wipes are an ok type of product that is good for the price. However, I would not choose to buy them unless I was on a really harsh budget and it was a necessity to scrimp on beauty spending, as they are rough on my skin and do not work as effectively as the wipes produced by proper cosmetics companies. Worth a try, but not really for anyone who wears heavy make-up or suffers with problem skin / sensitivity.
These wipes aren't bad for the price, however the price does tend to go up and down.
The wipes themselves are of a decent size and shape. They aren't too wet, they contain just the right amount of moisture. The wipes are white in colour and they smell pleasant enough. They don't have a strong fragrance but they're not the weakest smelling wipes that I have ever used. The scent lingers on your skin for a short while after use.
The wipes are a quick and easy way to refresh skin and/ or remove make-up. The wipes are lovely and cooling when applied to the face. They feel soft against the skin and they remove make-up easily, although you need to rub them a little if you have waterproof mascara on. They do remove waterproof mascara but some mascaras need more rubbing than others. Eyeshadow and foundation comes off pretty much straight away.
After using these wipes my skin feels cleansed and free from make-up and impurities. The pack can be re sealed after use and the pack also helps to keep the wipes fresh and moist. I find it easy to remove the wipes from the pack. They come out one by one so none are wasted. Overall these wipes are great value and not bad for the price. I paid just 27p for mine.
