Tesco Value Facial Wipes
Advantages: Easy to use, work well, smell nice, clean make up and dirt off my face.
Disadvantages: Won't remove stubborn make-up or heavy mascara.
**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).
Summary: A decent packet of wipes from the Tesco Everyday Value range.
