Cupcake Wet Wipes
Advantages: Small packet so fits in handbag, strawberry scented
Disadvantages: Wipes are quite thin and too small to remove all traces of make-up with just one wipe
These CupCake mini wet wipes are available from Miss Selfridge, I am not sure if these are available to buy anywhere else or if they are just exclusive to Miss Selfridge, as I have never seem them on sale anywhere else before. I was recently buying some shoes and jewellery from Miss Selfridge online, and if I spent over £40 I qualified for free delivery. I had spent around £39 and didn't want to purchase anything else and couldn't find anything else I liked for cheap and so when I noticed these wipes for £1.20 I added them to my basket in order to qualify for the free delivery, but without spending much more.
The only product description for these wipes on the website is 'mini packet of 10 wet wipes with cute cup cake design'. I could see by looking at the picture of the packet that the wipes are strawberry scented, and not exactly cup cake scented as I first thought. I wasn't entirely sure what these wipes main purpose was at first, and whether or not they could be used on your face, but I was hoping their would be more information on the back of the packet when they arrived.
Sure enough, this is a mini packet. It is kind of cute and they are small enough to be carried around in my handbag. You never know when you may need a wet wipe! The back of the packet did not have anymore information about the purpose of the wipes but it does state: "For adult use only, keep out of reach of children and pets, avoid contact with eyes, if irritation occurs discontinue use and rinse affected area with warm water. Do not use on sensitive skin. For external use only." Judging by this I guessed you could use it on your skin or your face.
I went to use one one night when staying at a friends house and I needed to remove my make-up. As soon as I opened the packet the strawberry scent hit me and it was lovely. The wipe itself was quite thin and small and so I could not use these as my daily wipes as I think it wouldn't remove all traces of make-up with just one wipe. I did feel like I had removed all of my make-up but when I woke up in the morning there was still traces of black under my eyes and so they are not the best for removing make-up, but they will do for in an emergency I suppose.
The seal on the wipes is just a standard sticker that sticks back down after taking a wipe out, but it seems to do the job of keeping them moist and smelling lovely very well.
These are priced at £1.20 for a pack of 10 and can be purchased online from the Miss Selfridge website or from some Miss Selfridge stores. The Miss Selfridge website allows you to check items are available in your local store or not. I won't be going out of my way to buy these again but they did make a handy purchase in order to qualify for free delivery!
Summary: A handy little packet of wet wipes that I keep for emergencies!
