I love the tea tree range from The Body Shop especially when my skin is producing excess oil or if I have a few spots as the range really helps to clear my skin up quickly and keep grease down to a minimum. I use a ton of face wipes for removing make-up, cleansing my face and just when I am generally being to lazy to cleanse, tone and moisturise properly. The tea tree wipes are really good but I do think they are expensive for what you get but that is probably my only complaint about them. The wipes come in a resalable packet and cost £5 for a pack of 25 wipes. The wipes are wet and contain tea tree in them to cleanse skin deep down and work as a spot fighting agent. They are great for refreshing skin and work really well for cleaning and removing impurities. Although I do think they are expensive they work really well. I usually only need the one wipe to remove all the make-up on my face and unlike some other wipes I actually feel like my skin is clean after using these. With some other wipes my skin can feel a bit sticky and not very deep cleansed but these really feel as though they work deep down to remove everything from my face. When I use these on my skin just to clean it when I haven' got make-up on I am always disgusted but happy to see how much dirt comes away from my skin as it looks clean in the mirror so it just shows how well these clean. They also feel nice to use as they aren't scratchy on my skin and are nice and gentle. They do dry my skin out ever so slightly so I have to make sure and use a moisturiser afterwards but this is something that I would do anyway. They leave my skin feeling and looking much less greasy afterwards and they work to stop my skin from over producing oil for ages after using them which helps my make-up stay on longer and just makes my skin look more matte and less shiny. Other than the price and the slight drying these are fab wipes and really recommended for people who suffer either the occasional break out or people who have more problem skin and need help keeping it from becoming blocked and greasy.
These wipes are priced at £4 per pack of 25 wipes. The wipes are of a standard shape and size and they are white in colour. They smell nice, with a pleasant tea tree scent, and the scent isn't too overpowering. The wipes are fairly moist which means that they cleanse and refresh the face aswell as removing make-up and impurities. The wipes remove heavy duty make-up such as foundation and waterproof mascara. I like these wipes simply because they don't do half a job. They're also really moisturising and they're great for troubled skin as the natural antiseptic action of the tea tree helps to control the excess oil on your skin, leaving it looking clear and shine free. I have oily skin and they really help to control my oily T Zone. After using these wipes my skin feels cleansed, toned and refreshed. I would suggest re sealing the pack after use as the wipes dry out quickly unless you seal the pack as soon as possible after opening. The wipes are easy to use and they're ideal for carrying around with you. The pack isn't too big so you can slip it into a handbag. The wipes are great for all skin types as they're mild and gentle without being harsh on the skin. My mum uses these as she suffers from redness and they work well for her too. Great quality facial wipes.
I've been using these face wipes for a couple of years now. I don't tend to use face wipes very often because parts of my skin get very greasy and I find that only a good face wash can really keep my skin clear. So up until recently I've only used these on the odd occassion when I can't be bothered to get out of bed to remove my makeup. When I've used other face wipes in the past I've found that even using them for one night has resulted in a break out of spots but with these face wipes that wasn't the case. With these I found that it was fine for me to go for a night using these instead of face wash without any sign of a breakout of spots. Even when I was wearing a lot of makeup I found that they removed all of my makeup using just one wipe. Recently I went away and decided that I would just take these with me because I've found that they work fine and it saved space in my bag. However, although these work well for the occassional cleanse they weren't good enough for me to use over an extended period of time. By the end of the three days I had a couple of spots. I also find that these dry my skin out so I was basically left with dry but spotty skin. Overall these wipes are good for occassional use. They do smell very strongly of tea tree which I find slightly unpleasant but they remove all of my makeup so I'm happy to put up with the smell. However, for long term use these aren't as good and are certainly not a substitute for face wash.
Although I have discovered my perfect cleanser, namely Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish I enjoy using facial wipes and have used tired and tested many different brands. I'm a real fan of any products containing tea tree oil because as well as their gorgeous aroma they offer antiseptic properties. I have used many of The Body Shop's Tea Tree range where I have found the majority of their products considerably favourable and this review discusses my experience with using their cleansing wipes. Please note that the wipes are now named "Tea Tree Cleansing Wipes" as opposed to "Tea Tree Oil Deep Cleansing Wipes". APPEARANCE OF THE PRODUCT If you are familiar with The Body Shop's tea tree range you will be aware of the vivid green packaging that enables the products to stand out clearly from the shelf. The cleansing wipes are no different and are provided to us in sturdy plastic packaging with a deep green coloured label in the centre, which displays images of the leaves of the tea tree. Whilst green is not a colour I would use inside my home I find it a very calming and relaxing colour and The Body Shop's packaging is a winner as far as I am concerned. The packet contains 25 wipes, which are suitable for blemished skin where we are informed that they will "cleanse to sweep away make-up, impurities and excess oil, for clearer looking skin". As my skin can be described as T-zone I am often prone to break outs, which fortunately, have remained at bay for a fairly lengthy period of time, but it is essential that I use suitable products to keep it that way. USING THE CLEANSING WIPES As with all products of this nature the label located in the centre needs to be pulled back by way of the small tab to reveal a reasonable sized opening to remove the wipes. A point I would make at this stage is that the label reseals itself until the very last wipe has been used. As soon as I exposed the opening a strong aroma of tea tree was evident, so these wipes are only for those people who love the fragrance, particularly as it's fairly powerful. The white coloured wipes are of a good size with their measurements of 21 cm x 16 cm and offer a good thickness. Whilst they are full of moisture it is not excessive, so there is no fear of liquid running down your face when using. I gently wiped all over my entire face whilst paying particular attention to problematic areas such as the corners of my nose, chin and neck. Although my skin displays no signs of spots or any broken areas the wipes offered a slight stinging sensation. I cannot state that this is uncomfortable, but it isn't particularly pleasant and I am surprised that The Body Shop recommends them for removing make-up. Although I am prepared to try and test products, particularly when writing a review, I would never use them on my eyes, as when I used the wipes on my cheeks my eyes would often water due to their strong aroma. Consequently, I would argue with The Body Shop's claim that these wipes are for "on the go", as I would definitely not recommend they be used in places where you are unable to immediately wash your hands after use. Unfortunately, I made this mistake and rubbed my eyes directly after my first use when I was able to witness the full effects of the tea tree oil! I checked on The Body Shop's website for further information relating to use on the eyes and a customer has left a comment advising that her friend suffered with stinging eyes after trying them out, so this is a definite no, no. My experience of using tea tree products has often been that they dry the skin due to their rather powerful properties. I wouldn't describe the wipes as gentle, as I believe that over use could cause slight dryness, as I often experience a little tightness on my cheeks and chin. Consequently, I feel that once a day would be sufficient followed by a good moisturiser to fully hydrate the skin. However, I found these wipes very favourable, as they left my skin feeling extremely clean and fresh and effectively remove any facial make-up, such as foundation and blusher. My experience has proven that they cleanse thoroughly whilst lifting any dirt and impurities from the skin without leaving any sticky residue. I love the feeling of just cleansed skin and these wipes delivered effective results where my skin appeared bright and radiant. I hesitated when rating these wipes, as I do not agree with some of The Body Shop's claims. However, they are a good quality wipe and for that reason they receive 4 stars from me together with my recommendation. I would add at this point that if you suffer with dry or sensitive skin I would not recommend you use these, as they are a little strong. I'm unsure if I would purchase these wipes again and whilst I will still continue to use my Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish I wanted something to freshen my skin whilst I'm away from home. INGREDIENTS AND OTHER INFORMATION There is an extremely lengthy list of ingredients, which I do not intend copying into this review. However, I would advise that the main ingredients are Community Fair Trade organic tea tree oil and tamuna oil. The Body Shop does not test any of its' products on animals. The wipes should be used within 3 months of opening and the packaging can be recycled after use. PRICE AND AVAILABILITY A pack of 25 wipes will cost you £4, which can be purchased either online or in store. I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
I visit my local High Street Body Shop often. I have tried lots of The Body Shop Products and some I really like and still use and some I dislike and don't use again. I like the fact that The Body Shop say no to animal testing and that most of the packaging they use is minimal and recycled. This product I am reviewing, The Body Shop Tea Tree Cleansing Wipes is not a Body Shop product that I will purchase again. The Packaging: The wipes come in a green coloured plastic pack. The name of the product and the Body Shop logo is on the front of the pack and the instructions for use are on the back of the pack. The pack has an opening at the front, this is where you access the wipes, this opening is resealable so this works to keep the wipes moist and fresh. The pack contains 25 wipes. Each wipe measures 8 inches by 6 inches. The wipes cost £4 per pack. The Product: The wipes are specially developed for blemished skin, they are one step wipes that help cleanse and refresh the skin. They wipe away make-up, impurities and excess oil, whilst refreshing the skin. The wipes are biodegradeable. The wipes contain Community Trade tea tree oil, Tamanu oil and Glycerin. My Results: The pack of wipes is easy to open, I just pull up the sticky oblong plastic strip on the front of the pack and remove a wipe easily from the pack. The wipes are large in size and they are quite thick and have a very soft texture. They are completely white in colour. The wipes are very smelly, I can smell them as soon as I open the pack, the smell is awful and smells like wood preservative. These wipes really stink and believe me it's not a nice smell at all. I am a this point reluctant to use them. I go ahead and use the wipe, it does exactly what it says on the pack, it removes all my make-up completely and leaves the skin on my face very clean. The problem is the smell is now even more intense. The wipe is still really moist even after I have used it, these wipes really feel as if they are overly wet. I had to dry my face after using just one wipe. I have used lots of Tea Tree products in the past and I like the smell of tea tree and think it works well in skin care products. The wipes are called Tea Tree Cleansing Wipes, I really expected to open them and smell tea tree, the strong smell from these wipes must be down to the Tamanu Oil they contain. They do not smell at all like tea tree. The Tamanu Oil perhaps works well at cleansing the face and if they could mask the smell of it then these wipes would be worth buying. As I said before these wipes are effective and easy to use but smell truly awful. Although the wipe made a good job of removing my make-up and cleaning my face I won't ever buy these wipes again. Getting a good result is one thing but the smell as I said before is really strong and not at all nice. I would not even use these wipes if they were free. I used the remaining wipes in the pack as household cleaning wipes and they seem to work well in that role.
This is another Body Shop Tea Tree product that I bought recently from my friend who held a Body Shop party. I felt like a little treat for my face, and since I have always liked The Body Shop range then I thought why not have a bit of a splash out on some things for myself. It may be lazy but I like to use Face Wipes before using actual Toner to clean my face. It only takes about 10 seconds to get a Cotton pad, soak it with Toner and wipe over your face but grabbing a wipe from the pack just seems to much easier. This comes in a pack of 25 wipes and this pack cost me £5.50. This seems to be quite a standard price in the Body Shop for products. Perhaps a bit expensive for face Wipes since other brands can cost at most around £3.50, but this brand is a really good brand in my eyes. The pack is alright. Just looks like the Dooyoo picture. It's a flat pack and a bright enough green colour. Just rip the part in the middle of the pack to get the Wipes out. The wipes are quite large and you will certainly get a good wipe from this all over your face and neck. They are damp but not all that wet, and after you wipe this all over your face you can feel that it is slightly damp and that little bit tingly. Your face dries in a couple of minutes and it doesn't feel dry or tight. You can certainly smell the Tea Tree on this and it is quite strong. This either settles down or you get used to the scent. I wouldn't say I love the scent of Tea Tree but it isn't my most favourite scent. I use 1 of these wipes in the morning and at night, so a pack won't last me all that long. I find that this takes away the Greasy feeling on my face, seems to Matt the shiny parts and although it didn't miraculously remove my Spots I haven't noticed any other new ones cropping up. Perhaps with continuous use there may be a good improvement with these as i've only been using them for a week. I would keep using these, but so far I have found that the Superdrug version of these do just as good a job, the shop is closer for me to nip to and buy and they are a good bit cheaper as well. A good product from a good brand.
I do love the body shop products, but I am not really sure why! I think I get captivated by the smell and packaging, but I can never really justify buying them full price, as in my opinion they are always over priced. I wait for special offers to come up, which they always do, and then I pick a couple of products out of what is on offer. This means I never really get to try what I want, I just buy what is on special offer, but it does mean I get to try lots of different products which I don't get to normally. I came across these wipes in a skin care offer. I do get oily skin and require deep cleansing so it seemed like they could help me out. In the pack there are 25 wipes, and full price they are £4. In the offer I got they worked out as just over £2 per pack. The tea tree wipes come in a green plastic envelope style package. There is a sticker on the lip, which peels off to leave a hole which the wipes come out of. The sticker acts and a reuseable lid, which you stick back down to keep the wipes fresh. This is very important, as if the seal isn't replaced properly the wipes will dry out, and then they are just as useful as wiping your face with a tissue. The wipes smell very strongly and are quite moist. The tea tree wipes have that very distinctive smell, which I have to admit I really don't like. I am not sure if it is one of those smells you either like or hate, or if it is just one of those smells noone likes! The wipes did a good job of cleaning my face. I used them to wipe off the day's dirt and my foundation and blusher. I couldn't get them near my eyes as it made them sting. The wipes did make my face feel clean, but with the name and description I was hoping they would make my face feel like it has had a deep clean, like I get when I use a face scrub, but I really didn't. After I used the wipes, I had to use extra make up remover to take my eye make up off, and then I washed my face with water, as I hated it when the smell of tea tree stuck on my face. All that extra washing kind of defeated using the wipes in the first place to be honest. These aren't bad wipes, but they are just of no use to me, and therefore I won't be buying them again.
I dont have too many Bodyshop products left that I havent already written a review on but I found 3 or 4 items this morning that I have never reviewed and I thought Id start with this one "Bodyshop Tea Tree Oil Deep Cleansing Wipes" which I got as part of a gift set a few months back. I have a very lengthy skin care routine when I remove my make-up and I havent cleansed, toned and moisturised I dont feel like myself and my skin looks like crap! Which is hy I didnt have exactly high hopes for these wipes as even though they are from a great range I just didnt think they would work. Sadly to say I was nearly totally right. Useful Information: Price: £4 For 25 Wipes Stockists: The Bodyshop For: Removing tough make-up & dirt they cleanse and tone your skin while removing any other elements of shine or impurities. These wipes are actually designed for people on the go who might be travelling but if you are going to get a pack I dont recommend using wipes everyday as sometimes I think skin needs something a little bit extra - I know mine does! Having said that though I guess these little wipes would travel well and be very easy to use on the go but the same could be said for any face wipe really. Now although I dont suffer with spots regularly I use Tea Tree based products a lot as in my opinion prevention is better than cure where spots are concerned and I have to admit since Ive been using these I havent had a single spot on my face. The strong aroma may not be to everyones taste but it doesnt last on your skin it just feels really refreshing and there will be no spots in sight after using these! Not too sure whether or not they would work for getting rid of spots but Id sya definately give it a go. Unfortunately that is the only nice thing I can find to say on these wipes. They dont remove make-up unless you scrub your eyes really hard which in turn leaves them red and sore, my skin does feel cleaner after Ive used these but these tend to dry my skin out rather than moisturise it and I have to say cleansing & toning leaves my skin looking and feeling so much better than just using these wipes. As for helping shine Ive seen no evidence of that so far - I dont have oily/shiny skin but in this heat I think everyone needs some anti-shine products and I dont think this one works at all - or not good enough! I really cant recommend them and I only use them now as a prevention from spots and Im nearly at the end of my packet - I wont be going back for more. Sure my face is spot free but its also red raw from scrubbing and dead tight! I think Id prefer the spots! Dont bother is my opinion. Thanks For Reading x0 Salz 0x
***What are these wipes?*** They are face wipes which remove make-up, dirt and oil off the skin. They contain tea tree oil which is a fantastic ingredient for people who suffer with blemished skin. ***How much are they?*** They are £4.00 for 25 wipes, which is much more than buying facial wipes in boots or superdrug. However I would never use any facial wipes from any brands from boots or superdrug because of the worry of them causing spots. Whereas these are specifically to treat spots. ***My opinion*** They are so quick and easy at removing make-up. However I wouldn't recommend removing eye make-up with them because they are so strong due to the tea tree oil, the first time I used them they were quite overpowering. I also wouldn't recommend using these everyday, I only use them when I'm feeling particularly tired/lazy or after a night out when I can't be bothered to wash my face. The other tea tree oil products in the Body Shop range are better for constant everyday use, like the facial wash, toner and day or night time lotions. What I love about the Body Shop is that you are helping support various different countries e.g. these facial wipes use community tea tree oil from Kenya which helps keep employment in these areas less well off. Also the Body Shop always has some sort of offer on like 3 for 2 so you never end up spending the full RRP of the products.
I think I may be one of the last people on Earth to try Tea Tree Cleansing Wipes, but I've only recently rediscovered The Body Shop's products. I used to be a huge fan of them when I was a teenager (weren't all teenagers?), but as an adult with agoraphobia, I don't tend to go into town, so I don't shop there. Now they have a very user-friendly website, I can honestly say I'm a convert. The Product ~~~~~~~~~~ The Body Shop's Tea Tree Cleansing Wipes come in a recyclable, thick crisp bag-type packaging. It's changed slightly over the years (I believe), but it still comes in a green packet with a resealable strip. On the resealable label it clearly reads, "Suitable for blemished skin," and, "Instant cleansing to sweep away make-up, impurities and excess oil, for clearer looking skin. Infused with tamanu oil." The blurb on the back reads, "On-the-go cleansing lifts pore-clogging impurities and removes excess shine without over-drying the skin." The ingredients are listed on the side in various languages - see below. You get 25 wipes in a pack, all of which are 21cm (8 inches) by 16cm (6 inches). The wipes themselves feel like brushed cotton, but silkier; they're very durable. Application ~~~~~~~~~ The first thing you'll notice on opening the packet is the smell. Personally, I find it quite offensive: it's really strong and smells like it'd kill sensitive skins. However, get past the smell and you can feel really refreshed. The wipes, as I've mentioned, are rather strong and will take a good scrubbing if you need to get your make-up off for instance. I generally use mine in the evening, just to freshen up whilst watching TV. Tea tree products are especially good for blemished skin, which I do have. I don't have particularly sensitive skin, but these wipes do make my skin tingle very slightly, so I honestly think they'd be unsuitable for sensitive skin. Once your skin has dried, it does feel toned, soft and squeaky clean, and this feeling lasts for some time. The tamanu oil acts as an antibacterial agent, too, so it'll help combat further breakouts. Pros and Cons ~~~~~~~~~~~ Firstly, what I love most about The Body Shop is that they don't test on animals. It was a huge issue when I was young, but it doesn't seem to be such an important issue anymore. The wipes are biodegradable and the packaging is recyclable; great for the environment. On the downside, I find the fragrance overpowering and slightly eye-watering. It's really something I'm not sure I could get over in future. The wipes do leave your skin feeling rather loved. They have also managed to control the oiliness in my skin, which is something most wipes haven't addressed. But, the smell does linger; I wouldn't use them before a night out. As for the price, they're £4.00 for a pack of 25. As I only use them once a day, I can justify the price. However, for anyone wanting to use them more than that, it'll get a little costly for a month's supply. Verdict ~~~~~~ I'm not sure whether I'd buy them again. I have definitely found a need for wipes of some sort in my life, but the tea tree oil smell is just a bit too much for me. Also, it can be a bit of a fuss to go into town to buy them. You can buy them via The Body Shop website (www.thebodyshop.co.uk) but you'll end up paying for postage if you don't spend over £15. All in all, I think this would be a great product if only the fragrance issue could be resolved.

I got these from a Body Shop party. I didnt order them - the party organiser did a raffle at the beginning of the party, the prize being a big bundle of products... that i won! This was one of the products. I was quite pleased as i love tea tree oil, it has so many cleansing properties that it just had to be good for your skin, right? Well, as soon as i got home i used them to remove my make up - and they burned!! I hadnt even got to my eyes, and im glad i hadnt because im sure that would have been agony, but even across my skin - they tingled and stung. Where i had wiped was all red and tender. So, assuming allergic reaction (i have a few allergies) i passed them on to my friend who uses anything and everything on her skin, and whilst she didnt have such an extreme reaction, she did say using them wasnt a pleasant experience! These cost £4 in the body shop, and whilst they may boast numerous benefits like containing anti-bacterial tea tree oil, glycerin for moisturising the skin, and tamanu oil - personally i really wouldnt recommend these And if you do decide to use them - do a patch test first.
For me my complexion was nigh on perfect until I hit 19, after blissfully enjoying teenage years of no skin care regime I became completely lost with what to do and quite frankly not only did I not have the discipline but I never found consistent results. Also I always wake up with a shine on my face in the morning. I had all but given up and then on a Christmas wander I stumbled across these beauties. Why are they so good? They are very quick to use, like most moist tissues when sealed properly they keep very well so all you have to do is pull one out and use (no faffing with trying to find cotton wool there). Then you just wipe them over your face, neck, hands where ever. They remove all make-up apart from eye make-up (you're not allowed to use them on your eyes anyway). Afterwards your face feels oil free and soft, I'm sure it does get rid of the dirt and grease, but the tissue won't turn brown so you miss out on the satisfaction you get with cotton wool, however after a week i've seen a drastic improvement in the amount of yuky sots I get, and therefore for me all the proof I need. They are also bio-degradable, but not flushable, which means you simply throw away with a clear conscience. So they work and they are perfect for removing make-up at the end of the night, taking that oily sheen off your face first thing in the morning, freshening up on a flight or long time travel and on the go wipes. Personally I keep a little pack by my bed and use one first thing which wakes me up and keeps my skin clear.
My skin is a great fan of Tea Tree Oil products, and I am a great fan of The Body Shop, especially the Tea Tree products. I use the Tea Tree facial wash every morning, and use the Tea Tree cover stick every day. I recently bought the Tea Tree Oil Deep Cleansing Wipes since the ones that I were using earlier (Simple cleansing wipes) were not doing wonders for my skin. The Tea Tree Oil wipes come in a pack of 25 for £4.00 (you can get 10% if you are a Body Shop member - it costs £4 for a membership card that lasts for one year). I felt that this was very expensive, but as stated I am a great fan of the Body Shop and don't mind paying a little more for the quality as it generally does tend to pay off. The wipes are also biodegradable, which is very important to me. They do the job that they are supposed to, without causing harm to the environment. Furthermore, the Tea Tree Oil is Community Trade which is great. It is claimed that the wipes lift away oil and dirt to refresh the skin, and effectively remove make up. I tend to wear quite a lot of make up, and did not think that the wipes were too great when it came to removing it. It tends to take about 2 or 3 of these wipes to remove all of my make up, although they do remove mascara quite well in comparison with other wipes. One downside to the wipes is that they dry out quite quickly and seem to contain little moisture which is quite annoying given that they are so expensive! They do, however, leave the skin feeling noticably refreshed and leave a gentle but invigorating tingling in the skin. The wipes do not irritate my very senstive skin either, which is a definite bonus. Furthermore, they smell delightful and definitely leave my skin feeling refreshed. Finally, it is evident that they do an excellent job of removing dirt and unclogging pores since my skin has become much more free of blemishes in the couple of weeks since I began using these wipes.
I recently bought the body shops tea tree cleansing wipes, as a quicker, easier alternative to my clinique whilst i was on holiday, and when i bought them they seemed really good, althought they are a bit over priced for cleansing wipes. In the pack you get 25 biodegradable wipes, which is good for the environment! The wipes contain, tea tree - obviously, which has natural antibacterial properties and glycerin which moisturises the skin. Also the tea tree oil in the wipes is community trade tea tree oil, which is from the Kenya organic farmers assosication, so when you buy this product you are also helping develop Kenyas local economy and also giving Kenyans jobs on the farms. They are great for breaks away, as they are handy and just fit into your handbag or suitcase, so you can take them where ever you go! Although i have found that if you have sensitive skin or if you have eczema, like me then this product may irritate your skin, causing slight burning/tingling sensation, but then goes away. Overall this product is great for people who like to travel and it does what it says on the packaging, but if you have sensitive skin, it MAY irritate your skin, reactions will vary from person to person, so you might not experience the same irritation as me.
Christmas and the sales have ended up leaving me with loads of reviews to do, especially as I have so many more Body Shop products now. As if I didn't have enough before! When my last lot of face wipes ran out I popped into Bath and bought some more from the Body Shop store but I didn't go for my usual Vitamin E ones, I thought I would try out the Tea Tree Oil version and see if maybe they would help to clear up my unruly skin. My skin issues are mainly down to hormones so I don't know why I try and solve it with lotions and potions but a girl can try, right?! The Body Shops range of Tea Tree Oil products are for oil/blemished skin. Well I kind of fit into that as I have combination skin but recently the oily T zone has been worse than normal so perhaps this may help a little. I also think that where I have been wearing make up more often than usual what with the parties and visits there are to do over Christmas and New Year that the lack of air getting to my skin and the chemicals I am putting on my skin have not helped. The pack is sleek and stylish in appearance, in my opinion at least. It is a bright mint green plastic packet with a black strange shaped sticker on the front, or top depending on how you look at it, the rest of this side is left blank with all the information on the back/bottom. The sticker has the Body Shop logo and Tea Tree symbol on it and; TEA TREE OIL DEEP CLEANSING FACE WIPES OILY/BLEMISHED SKIN. One-step multi-action deep cleansing and toning, to unclog pores, remove excess oils and impurities. 25 wipes 18cm (7.09in) x 20cm (7.9in) All the above is also repeated in French too. There is a security seal sticker on there too so that you can see if the packet has been open or not as you don't want to buy an open one that someone has had their fingers in or where one wipe may be missing do you?! The back has information in several languages 100% biodegradable wipes. With triple action community trade tea tree oil and salicylic acid. If product gets in eyes rinse with clean water. Not for use around the eye area. Do not dispose by flushing. For external use only. Reseal after use. Made in Italy The copyright information, company address, barcode and full ingredients list. Opening the wipes is easy, you just pull back the sticker and pull out a wipe, the sticker will then stick back in place to keep the wipes from drying out. I have found that this did stay relatively sticky compared with other packs I have tried over the years and although I only have one wipe left I don't now have to put something on top of it like I have with other packs, there have even been similar products that after a few times of sticking the opening back to the packet it has been that bad that I had to put them in a bag but not with this one. The wipes themselves are an average size for this kind of product and are very soft, they feel more like fabric than a lot of wipes do. Where they are soft it doesn't feel in any way scratchy when you wipe them over your face which is another problem I have found with other types of face wipes before now. They are not overly wet but enough for you to feel that they are doing their job. I tend to use these every night if I have been wearing make up or not. I still user toner afterwards, at the moment I am using the Vitamin E toner from The Body Shop. I know that these are meant to cleanse and tone but I am a creature of habit. One wipe is enough to get all my make up off including my rather stubborn mascara and leave my skin feeling able to breathe again, that said I do still find traces of make up on the cotton wool after using my toner so maybe if you were going to use these and not tone after you would be better off using two of them. Tea Tree Oil is great for oily and blemished skin for several reasons. It has antibacterial qualities to it, which will help keep any bacteria on the skin under control, so help prevent further breakouts and help to calm any spots that are already there. I tend to use the pure oil on a cotton bud after plucking my eyebrows, to try and prevent any problems and to soothe the redness. I find it really helps. If you wax these wipes may be good to use after. You will have noticed by now that I have yet to mention the cost and smell of these wipes, that is because these are the two drawbacks. The fact that these are Tea Tree Oil based meant that I knew before buying them that I wasn't going to been all that keen on the scent as I am not a fan of the smell of Tea Tree Oil anyway but not to the point where I wont use it, just that I would prefer something else. Tea Tree Oil has a very distinctive scent and I am sure you all know what that is, a fresh, well, tree smell. These contain peppermint oil as well to give that tingly feeling which is nice and refreshing and also lifts the scent of these a little to the point where I almost like it but still don't. The price is a little steep but I can't say much as it is the same as it costs for my usual wipes. For just 25 wipes it costs £5.50. Yes I know that is a lot isn't it! That works out at 22p a wipe. That said there are three reasons why I can justify paying that to myself: These wipes are completely biodegradable so are more environmentally friendly than some. The packaging is recyclable. They have not been tested on animals. These wipes work well and take make up off with ease, they aren't so wet that you end up with it dripping down yourself while cleansing, they are four in one so save on time and possibly money (unless you are like me and still tone anyway!), they are biodegradable, recyclable and not tested on animals which is great for your conscience as well, have antibacterial and soothing properties and might help clear up problematic skin. Putting up with the smell and price is easy when you read the list above. Will I buy them again, yes, I already have! They haven't really made any noticeable difference to my skin but I do like them, and more than I do the Vitamin E ones that I was using. Overall I am going to give them four out of five stars but I wish I could give four and a half stars.
