      A simple face wipe

      I recently did a review of Pure deep cleanse facial wipes, I was not overly impressed with them for much more than a simple face wipe. Going through my masses of toiletries I found a packet of 3 in 1 make up removal wipes, also made by Pure. I do not remember buying them, I think actually I got them included in a toiletry bundle as a birthday or Christmas present. Although I did not buy the wipes, I have seen them in Savers for 99p and I have seen them 3 for £1 in Poundland. Each pack contains 25 wipes, so they are pretty good value - if they work that is! The packaging is quite pretty, a nice tranquil purple design along with information about the product are on the front of the pack. They claim to remove make up whilst cleansing, toning and hydrating leaving you with smooth, refreshed and radiant skin. The back of the pack shows the used wipes should be thrown in the bin rather than flushed, the packaging is recycled, the product is not tested on animals and details of the manufacturer - Saraco Industries. It warns to avoid contact with eyes and sore of broken skin and also gives details of the ingredients. It has lots of not very natural ingredients so is not really suitable for people who like to use more natural products. The wipes are in a resealable packet, this is easy to peel back and remove a wipe and then reseal - the seal works quite well although I did find it lost its sticky after being in my handbag for a while. The wipes do not come out very easily, I have found that at least 2 wipes come out at once and I have to put once back. The wipes are very soft and the moisture in them is good, they are not too wet or too dry - I really hate using wipes which leave you face really wet after use. As for make up removal, well I do not wear foundation so would not be able to comment on that but they do remove lipstick well, they even do a good job on the lip staining kind of lipstick. Eye shadow comes off well also, and I did not found the wipes caused any irritation to my eyes and there was no need to rub too hard. Mascara I am not so impressed with, I found that I ended up with dark smudges around my eyes. With regard to how it makes your skin feel, it does feel fresh and clean, although I wouldn't say they are anything special, my face feels just as good when I use baby wipes, they do their job though. I would perhaps consider buying these to have in my handbag as the pack is small and light, however at home i think I would stick to baby wipes.

      Great Value - Average Results, Pure Make-up removal wipes

      Pure 3 in 1 Make-Up Removal Wipes I'm always impressed with some of the things you can pick up in poundland and making a regular shelf presence are these 3 in 1 make-up removal wipes by Pure priced at two packs for £1, which is great value when you see the prices Boots and supermarkets charge for these types of wipes. The 3 in 1 wipes come in a plastic wrapping that is purple and white. On the top of the packet the is a resalable hole where you pull the wipes out of, one you have one you close the sticky tape and put it face down on a flat surface to keep them fresh and moist in the packet. You get 25 individual wipes in each packet and these are really easy and simple to pull out - you don't end up with ten of them at once and fighting to get them back in! As well as being make-up remover wipes, Pure claim that these cleanse and tone your skin and are gently hydrating which leaves the skin smooth, refreshed and radiant. I wouldn't totally disagree with this statement, but I don't think they're the best on the market by any means. To use the wipes you remove a single sheet and rub over your face to remove your make up, I find that you have to rub quite sternly to get a good result (by a good result I mean that the entire wipe is covered in beiges and black colours!). The sheets are relatively moist, however I prefer a more saturated sheet that also makes removing your make up much less of a battle. The wipe itself is a smooth surface and it has a good thickness so that it doesn't tear or disintegrate during use. I tend to use one wipe per night and this does a good enough job to make me feel like I have removed most if not all of my make-up. However my skin doesn't feel particularly nourished or radiant after using it, just clean and smooth so I think they're exaggerating for marketing purposes. Overall I like this wipe for its price and the fact that it does remove my make-up and leaves me with clean feeling skin. I would prefer it to have more moisture absorbed into the sheet which I think would improve its performance greatly. An average 3 out of 5 stars from me.

        Disadvantages

        they wrk well for the price

        ==Pure 3 in 1 Make Up Removal Wipes== Being a bit of a self confessed Poundland shopahloic I find myself having my shopping splurges of late in the store - far cheaper than in Boots! So far I have come across quite a few naff items and probably more good items. These wipes have been sitting in the middle of the good items and the bad items. They are not awful but they are not the best wipes I have ever bought. However it is the price that really makes them something that I will continue to buy time and time again. I have only seen these Pure 3 in 1 make up removal wipes for sale in Poundland though I expect there are other places that you can pick them up. There are a few different type of wipes in the Pure range but I find that the 3 in 1 make up removal wipes are the best ones to get. How much are they I hear you cry! Well you would assume that they are a pound considering they are being sold in Poundland but no! They are buy 2 packets for £1 which makes a single pack a great price of 50 pence! There are 25 wipes in a pack (2 pence per wipe is excellent value) and the packet states that they are "perfect for removing make up,. Cleansing, toning and gently hydrating to leave your skin feeling smooth, refreshed and radiant". This all sounds pretty perfect and exactly what anyone would want in a wipe. It also states on the packaging that the wipes are "enriched with Aloe Vera!" another added bonus. The wipes are housed within a regular style packet and the thick plastic packaging holds the wipes in well with a clear peel back section which covers the hold to pull out the wipes. All pretty standard stuff. The colourings of the 3 in 1 wipes are purple and white where I think the other wipes in the range are a green and white coloured. Inside the packaging the wipes are easy to pull out and I never get more than one come out at a time which is good. They are not overly wet and in my opinion they have just the right amount of moisture that I look for when using wipes such as these. The wipes are smooth both sides and have a light fresh fragrance to them which may irritate people with overly sensitive skin. They are square in shape and pretty much a standard facial wipe size and they are not the thickest wipes but nor are they the thinnest I have ever used. To touch the wipes they feel pretty soft although when using the wipes to remove the make up from around my eye area they are not as soft as I first thought they would be and do not feel as comfortable as other wipes I like to use, such as the no.7 facial wipes. By looking at the wipe you can see that it has taken off a good deal of my make up as it has discoloured the white wipe. Eye make up takes a little bit more effort to remove although I do try and be a little gentle with this delicate area. I will need to spend a lot more time wiping my lashes and eyes with different parts of the wipe compared to what I would do with other branded wipes. I can remove all of my make up with one wipe when having just a natural looking day type of face on. However if I have been out for an evening and applied more make up and a heavier eye look I will probably need two wipes to get a totally clean face. My face is left feeling make up free. I can't say that the claims of leaving the skin feeling smooth, hydrated, refreshed and radiant are particularly true. I think at best it feels make up free and somewhat cleaner. I do find that the need to apply a ton of face cream is a must when using these as my face can be left feeling slightly tight. They may not be the softest wipes I have used and they probably don't leave my face feeling as fresh as it could do but as a quick fix when I can't be bothered to use my cleaner and toner they are really good especially for the price. Using these wipes is far better than leaving make up on over night and I really think for 2 pence per wipe you can't go wrong. They do work although not being the best they represent excellent value for money. I think I am more than happy to award these Pure 3 in 1 make up removal wipes a pretty good and generous score of 4 out of 5 stars. I don't think they can be beaten on price for the results you get. Highly recommended. I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you Many thanks for taking the time to read.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Not great but cheap and do the job

        I like to try and take my make-up off fully before going to bed but like most people I can be lazy and resort to wipes. The thing about make-up remover wipes is that they never fully remove make-up and they can be really expensive. I tried the Pure wipes as they were on offer in poundland for 2 packets for a pound so I thought they would be worth trying and seeing if they were any good. At that price I was sure even if they weren't all that great at least I wasn't spending a lot of money on them. Each packet contains 25 wipes so 50 wipes for a £1 seemed like good value. They come in a re-sealable packet like most wipes do and they have a three in one action for cleansing toning and removing make-up. As I said I would only think of using facial wipes when I was being extremely lazy for example after a night out where I couldn't be bothered to properly clean and tone my face. I also like to use them if I have heavy make-up to just remove the majority of my make-up before cleansing properly. I used these until I ran out but I wasn't overly impressed with them. They did an ok job of removing most of the visible make-up but they just never left my skin feeling particularly clean. I also noticed that I had to use a minimum of three wipes every time before they shifted the majority of my visible make-up. I also ended up having to wipe really hard to ensure that my eye make-up was removed so they weren't particularly gentle. They also stung a little on my skin and afterwards I was left looking a little flushed and irritated. I have sensitive skin anyway but some wipes feel gentle enough to use without this happening. These wipes were ok and I would buy them again but only really as a back-up in case I run out of my better ones. Because they were so cheap in comparison to the other ones I buy I would look past their faults such as the need for using more than one to remove make-up as even though I had to use a few they still worked out considerably cheaper than most other ones I buy. If you have sensitive skin then I wouldn't recommend these but if not it might be worth stocking up on some since they are so cheap.

          Disadvantages

          3-in-1 makeup wipes by Pure

          I always buy make up wipes to remove my make up each night as obviously it is better for the skin to breathe during the night and it's better to apply makeup in the morning on clean skin. I find that makeup wipes are generally better than plain soap and water as wipes are quicker and the formulas invested in them tend to remove make up more effectively. I think I picked these make up wipes up from B and M bargains (but i'm not 100% certain) as they were on offer at the time for just £1. I don't usually stay loyal to many products and instead I am guided by price, offers and sometimes even packaging. I picked these up due to the price and the fact that they promised to provide 3-in-1 action for my skin. These three things were cleansing, toning and hydrating. The packaging is predominantly white/cream with purple edges. The brand name is 'pure' and this is emblazonned on the front of the packet on a gree background. There is calm purple images of a water droplet, also. On the underside of the packet is the directions and use and safety procedures. The big advantage to this packet is that it is resealable which stops the wipes from drying out. Inside this packet you get 25 wipes. The wipes are square and white and are very thin that they are almost transparent! They are moist to touch and are fragranced. The smell is perfumed floral but not overwhelming, it is just enough to leave the skin feeling refreshed. Removing makeup with these wipes is a struggle, in my opinion. Foundation, blusher and powder is easier than removing eye make up but I still find that I need to vigorously rub at my skin to get it clean. Eye make up is even more difficult to remove and I find that these wipes irritate my eyes and leave my eyes and my skin red and patchy which is never a good look! Furthermore, I found that after using these wipes my face was sticky and didn't feel hydrated or softer in any way which was very disappointing. Due to this, I would not recommend these wipes to anyone even at the small price of just £1!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          AVOID! Cheap and nasty

          I bought a couple of packs of these wipes from my local discount store. I bought two packs for a pound. The wipes are presented in an attractive looking pack that can be resealed after opening. The wipes are quite fresh and moist. They are of a standard shape and size and they smell nice too. I would describe their scent as quite feminine and uplifting. It is a nice scent and it's not too overpowering. The wipes contain Aloe Vera which is great for all skin types. They are easy to use. You simply wipe them across the face to remove make-up and impurities. I find that the wipes remove most of my make-up but they often struggle to remove waterproof mascara. You sort of have to scrub and scrub to remove the mascara which is bad for the skin. This leaves my skin feeling sore. After a few days of using these wipes I started to notice that my skin felt somewhat different. It felt rather dry, especially around the chin area. I put this down to the wipes as I wasn't using anything different on my skin at the time. The dryness got worse until I stopped using the wipes. My skin also felt itchy and warm. I think these wipes are just cheap and nasty to be honest. They smell nice but that's about it. They're quite harsh on the skin and they're not soothing (calming) unlike some other wipes I have used that manage to calm down irritated skin. These just make irritated skin worse and they dry out the skin too. AVOID.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          High quality, low priced wipes.

          As I wear make up on a daily basis, I constantly get through make up remover wipes meaning that I can sometimes see myself through up to two packs a month, as I also use the wipes to cleanse my face in the morning sometimes. It was becoming quite expensive to stick to my usual Simple wipes, therefore now I just hunt around for bargain make up remover wipes. I found these Pure 3 in 1 make up removal wipes, and I was therefore hoping that these would do the job for me. I discovered these in my local Poundland, and to be honest I have not seen these retailed anywhere else, especially not in any of the bigger supermarkets and pharmacies, therefore I would shop around your local pound store if you are interested in this. Paying £1 is the perfect price for me as I try to stick to a budget, and for this price I was hoping for good wipes, although I knew there was a good chance that they might not perform great. The packet comes as shown in the image, and as you can see it does not in any way look cheap and I would not suspect that somebody has purchased these from Poundland! The packet itself is easy to get in to, and you simply have to peel back an opening and pull out the wipes. You get 25 wipes which is around the standard size nowadays for these packets. I have noticed that the wipes themselves are quite soft in comparison to many others which I have tried before, but they are also a lot thinner than most, therefore it does take a little longer to scrub off tough make up. The wipes themselves have quite a pleasant, fresh smell to them which was also a hit for me. Something which I noticed with these wipes upon first opening them was that the wipes were quite moist and wet, and this means that it makes cleansing the face and removing make up such an easier task, as it can be quite irritating to the skin and time consuming if you have ever tried out make up wipes which are rougher in texture. I would still recommend that you seal up the opening after use to ensure that no air gets into the packet as you are at risk of drying them out. Another tip is to pop the pack upside down to allow the bottom of the pack to be wetter for when you next use them! These make up wipes stood out to me compared to the others in the range which they offered and this is because they are a 3 in 1. The wipes help to remove make up (obviously), as well as cleansing and toning the skin. I am very impressed with this as sometimes I can get quite lazy when it comes to skincare routines, therefore a wipe is a quick and simple way to look after your skin as well as removing the days make up. I suffer from oily and combination skin, therefore some make up wipes do end up leaving my skin feeling just as oily if not more. These however work excellently with my skin to leave it feeling soft and clean after use, and neither leave it dry or oily which is fantastic and not something I have experienced with many other make up wipes in the past, therefore if you have oily skin I would urge you to try out these sometime! The only bad thing I have to say about this is that if you wear tough eye make up like I sometimes do, these wipes can end up stinging your eyes quite a bit if they are sensitive. There are warnings on the back of the packet to avoid contact with eyes, so I suppose that one is my own fault a little bit! Other than this I have experienced no problems with these wipes and I would be happy to repurchase them instead of spending more for brands from Boots or Superdrug when these do the exact same job! Overall, an absolute bargain of make up remover wipes which offer high quality and excellent results. These definitely turned out better than I could have ever expected and I will continue to rave about them in the future. Thanks for reading.

            face wipes for makeup removal

            At the minute my skin hasn't really been at its best which is why I've decided that I really need to start taking much better care with it and that is why I have bought these make up wipes. I am not really swayed by brand too much but this is a brand I have used before and make up is something I can be a bit lazy at taking off but now that I have bought these I have been taking my make up off every night and I have to say I am noticing much better results. APPEARANCE The front of the packet is quite natural looking and it is a white rectangular packet with the Pure logo on the left and a picture of a water dropping into a pool of water in purple. It states on the front there are 25 wipes in a packet and it says they are enriched with aloe vera and states what they aim to do. On the reverse the directions of use are listed as well as warnings and ingredients and more information about the company. 3 IN 1 MAKE UP REMOVAL WIPES With these wipes, you have to use them within six months of opening which is easily achievable. They are not tested on animals and should be kept out of reach of children. Also, avoid contact with the eyes, sore or broken skin and don't flush down the toilet, and dispose of with normal household waste. These wipes aim to remove make up, cleanse and tone and gently hydrate to leave skin smooth, refreshed and glowing. I do think it is a lot to promise but I can agree with some of it. To open the wipes there is a bit on the front you peel up and then you can access the wipes pulling one out at a time. I have found that you have to make sure you close the packet properly or these will dry out quickly which will make them useless. They are white sheets of cotton almost like a tissue and smell very nice and perfumed, fresh which is what you want. They are lightly damp to touch but just look pretty much like the average wipe except they are softer to touch. In terms of how I use these, I just lightly wipe this over my face, neck and eye area and it is soothing on skin as it is quite cold and it is cleaning skin yet taking all of the make up off at the same time. My wipe removes everything easily, leaving my skin refreshed and clean and ready to breathe overnight. I find these soft on the face which is nice and as soon as I am finished I put them in a bin as you are not meant to flush. I only need one per use as I don't wear too much make up anyway. Having been using these for a month now and on my last wipe of the pack, I am happy with these. My skin feels a lot better and a lot softer and it also looks a lot better than it originally did. The wipes do not perform miracles and I still use other products for deeper cleaning on my face but in terms of a wipe and the price that they are, I thoroughly recommend these and I will buy them again at some point as they are reliable and work well. COST I bought mine in Poundland so these weren't that expensive at all I think it was about £1 for a packet. These are cheaper than most other brands. There is no official website for the brand.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              A budget item that works well.

              I was in a local branch of 'Poundland' discount saving store recently when I noticed a large display of assorted face wipe products. I recognised the 'Pure' brand as being one I had used before (although a long time ago!) and decided to stock up on a few packages of face wipes from this brand. The small package of "Pure 3in1 Make Up Removal Complete Cleansing Wipes" (to give them their full name) contains 25 individual wipes and cost me £1 for two packs in a local branch of Poundland, so of course this works out at only 50 pence per pack which I thought was really good value. I actually wondered if the wipes were perhaps a bit too cheap to work well, but only one way to find out.... Opening up the package of Pure wipes was easy to do. There is a sticky label made of quite strong plastic material on the front of the package, which allows the package to be opened and re-sealed after use. I found that the label remained sticky enough to allow the package to be sufficiently sealed shut for the duration of me using the wipes and it didn't dry out at all, which is a real bugbear of mine when it comes to products like this. The wipes themselves are soft, white little cloths that are damp to the touch and have a faint whiff of fragrance that is noticeable when I am using the facial wipe on my face. The fragrance is quite soapy and perfume-like, but it is more subtle than a lot of the other products that I use for my skincare routine, which suits me down to the ground as I am not a big fan of using highly-perfumed cosmetics on my delicate skin. I find the cloths are very soft, much softer than I expected as I have used cheaper-branded face wipes in the past and have found them to be slightly harsh and quite rough or abbrasive at times. No need to worry about such matters with the Pure 3in1 wipes, as they felt lovely and gentle when I used them on my face. I also had no problem with using the wipes around the delicate eye area, which I was pleased about. These particular face wipes are designed for make-up removal, so I have to admit that I would have been a bit peeved if they had aggravated my delicate peepers. I found that the Pure 3in1 wipes were moist enough to remove my facial make-up and eye make-up easily and without much effort or vigorous rubbing being required on my part, whilst they were not so wet that they felt sloppy or overly cold or uncomfortable to use on my skin. I thought that in this respect, they worked as well as most other similar products that I buy regularly. I was also impressed that they removed my dark eye make-up easily, as other products don't seem to be able to cope with my heavily lined eyes too well. The only real problem I had with the Pure 3in1 wipes was with the rather confident claims made on the packaging that the product is "Perfect for removing make-up, cleansing, toning and gently hydrating to leave your skin feeling smooth, refreshed and radiant." I actually found that very little in this statement was true when it came to my own skin. First of all, I found that the wipes were actually not that great at preventing my skin from drying out. To be fair, this is something that is quite a common trait for a facial wipe product like this one and they do seem to be quite drying on my sensitive skin for most of the time. I felt this was a bit of a let-down with this particular product however, and the claims on the packaging about the product 'hydrating' my skin were really quite misleading. Furthermore, the claims about the wipes 'cleansing and toning' were not at all true and I found I still had to carry out my usual skincare routine whether I had used one of the Pure 3in1 wipes or not. I have yet to find a facial wipe product that can take the place of a cleanser or toner and to be honest that's fine with me as I don't feel ANY of the facial wet wipes I have tried before even remotely come close to giving the same results as carrying out a full skincare routine that includes cleansing and toning. I just wish that some products wouldn't make such colourful claims on their packaging and would stick to talking about the truthful aspects of the results you can expect to achieve from using such a product. Does it remove make-up effectively? Yes. Are they gentle on the skin and especially around the delicate eye area? Yes. Sometimes, I think products such as this one tend to bend the truth to make them more appealing and it only leads to disappointment and frustration for consumers, so a point will be deducted from me for what I think are quite misleading, exaggerated claims on the packaging. Apart from this matter though, I could not fault the little wipes and would definitely buy them again. They ticked all the boxes for me - they worked well, and didn't aggravate my overly sensitive skin. They removed make-up effectively and easily and even heavy, dark-coloured eye make-up was removed properly. They are affordable and do not break the bank whilst being of a reasonable quality. All in all, I was pleased enough with my purchase and will probably buy them again. As with all similar products, they should be disposed of in a bin and not flushed down the toilet. The product has not been tested on animals. The 'Pure 3in1 Make-Up Removal Wipes' can be bought in some discounted drugstores such as Bodycare and are available in branches of Poundland, where you can buy two packs for £1.

                Rubbish Makeup Removing Wipes

                I usually use cotton pads or buds covered in makeup remover liquid to remove my makeup as I find it is more gentle and precise, but when I saw the Pure 3 in 1 make up removing wipes I thought i'd give them a try as it would be quicker and easier and also they were really cheap - I shop in a local factory shop and was lucky enough (or so I thought) to get these for 50p! I have also seen them in my local Poundland, but never bothered to pick them up. They're also likely to be available in places such as Boots, Superdrug, Supermarkets such as Tesco etc. The wipes come in a little pack of 25, which is identical to Dooyoo's picture, although the purple is lighter than it appears. On the back it includes directions/product info and on the front there is a little seal that peels away, it exposes a hole in which the wipes can be pulled out of. The seel can then be stuck back down as it stays sticky. I like the seal as it keeps the wipes nice and fresh so I don't have to worry about them drying out. The wipes are really moist, if you squeeze them then alot of liquid comes out, so it's important to use them gently. They have an unpleasent smell to them which is heavily fragranced, I can't put my finger on the excact smell but it does have a hint of floral, it reminds me of toilet cleaner. One wipe is enough for my entire face. I have sensetive skin and these wipes leave my skin red, with a horrible tingling sensation. They did remove my foundation after some struggle, however because they left my skin feeling so unpleasent I did not want to use these on my eye makeup, and I question the effectiveness they would have on mascara and eyeliner as to me they struggled to even remove a thin layer of foundation! I think because they are so moist this is the only reason they remove makeup, they do not leave the skin refreshed at all and I really didn't like these wipes. My skin did not feel fresh or hydrated, and a few days after I had used one of these wipes I broke out in spots! I can't be certain if it was the wipes that caused the spots, but seeing as I am not prone to spots - my skin is extremely clear - it most likely was! On a plus side the wipes are not tested on animals and the packaging can be recycled, but the pack is currently sitting in my makeup draw unused, and I will more than likely be chucking it away or giving it away! A waste of 50p.

                  Great for cleansing your skin. Rubbish for removing make-up.

                  I first found these wipes in my local Poundland store. I, as usual, didn't have an awful lot of money going spare but I was in need of some new make-up removal wipes so I thought I'd grab a pack of these at a low price knowing I wouldn't have lost out on much if they were no good. These wipes are enriched with aloe vera and smell lovely. They're not tested on animals (this is a make or break on whether I buy and use a product or not) and the packaging can be recycled. These are pretty friendly wipes! The actual wipe itself is a good dampness. It isn't too dry that it's impossible to remove anything but it isn't so wet that it felt like I'd just submerged my head under water and now needed to towel dry my face either. These are make-up removal wipes so naturally I was expecting them to remove my make-up. I found that my foundation was removed really easily, however eyeliner and mascara were impossible to remove using these wipes. I used a number of the wipes on my eyes and absolutely nothing had been removed. This was a massive let down. They do, however, leave your skin feeling hydrated, smooth and soft. After using these wipes I can't help put run my fingers across my cheek for a few minutes feeling how soft and nice my skin feels. I do think these wipes would be much better as just cleansing wipes as they are completely useless when it comes to eye make-up removal but great for leaving behind soft skin.

                  Ok for the price but I'd prefer ones I could use to remove eye make-up too

                  I came across these on my latest visit to Poundland and decided to snap up a few. At just 50p per packet (they are on offer for 2 for £1 every time I go in there), I figured that it was no big loss if they turned out to be rubbish and having already used the deep cleansing version of these wipes (I've reviewed those previously) I was fairly confident that they wouldn't be a total disaster. ***The Wipes*** The wipes are fairly moist. I don't feel as though they are doing a good enough job if they are too dry, so this was pleasing. Unlike the deep cleansing wipes from the same range, these wipes had a fragrance to them, which was quite nice to smell but did leave me wondering what effect they might have on my sometimes sensitive skin. I have to admit that I was quite tentative when first using them in case they turned out to be too harsh and was relieved that this didn't happen. There was some faint tingling after I'd finished using them but fortunately this didn't last long and was a bit of a false alarm. These aren't supposed to be used on the eyes so you'll need a separate remover to get rid of eye make-up. ***The Results*** It took two wipes to thoroughly clean my face and I was surprised to see how 'grubby' both wipes looked after I inspected them afterwards. My face hadn't looked or felt particularly dirty so I took this as a sign that they are doing a good cleansing job. I noticed afterwards that although my skin felt very clean, it was also quite 'tight' and I had to apply some moisturiser before it felt normal again so I guess that they may be stripping some of the natural oils out of the skin. Having looked at the packaging, it says that these are enriched with aloe vera, which may explain the tingling I feel sometimes straight after using them.
