During a recent shop at a local branch of Tesco, I purchased two packs of the "Tesco Sensitive Facial Wipes", with this review discussing my experiences.
I paid £1 for each of the packs of 25 individual Wipes at the time of purchase, with this price reflecting reasonable value for money. You can buy these Wipes in store, in larger branches of Tesco, and they are available to buy online.
The plain white pack that is detailed with blue font gives a clean, crisp appearance and is quite appealing. There is a sticky label closure that is used to provide a seal on the front of the pack, and this is of a good quality, ensuring that the moist wipes remain sealed between uses.
To use, I simply need to remove one of the Tesco Wipes from its packaging and smooth it over the face. This allows it to gently cleanse the skin, removing make-up in the process.
I do feel that the Tesco Wipes feel rather 'soapy' when they are first removed from their pack, but this feeling doesn't interfere with their use, nor does it leave any residue or tackiness on the skin afterwards. Another plus point for me, personally, is the softness of the woven 'cloth' type material that these particular wipes have; it allows them to feel quite gentle when they are smoothed over the face, which I really quite like - particularly as I do often use such products around the delicate eye area.
Furthermore, I have found that the Tesco Sensitive Wipes are really quite effective. I find that they cleanse my skin quite well, leaving it feeling refreshed afterwards. I do find too that they remove make-up rather well, with their soft, 'woven' texture working well to remove all traces of make-up in just a moment or two.
I do find it necessary to use a separate wipe to cope with darker make-up such as eyeliner or mascara as these particular wipes are too small in their size to cope with removing a full 'face' of make-up that includes heavily made-up eyes. To be fair, though, this is common with wipes that are in the same price range as these Tesco ones.
After use, my skin looks clean and fresh, and it feels adequately cleansed. There is no tackiness present on the skin's surface, and I am also pleased that the dryness that affects my face has not been accelerated by the product.
Likewise, my sensitive skin has suffered nothing in the way of irritation from this product and I therefore have no problem in recommending them for use by those consumers who suffer from dry/sensitive skin.
Taking everything into account, I would recommend the Tesco Sensitive Wipes and I do feel that I would buy them again in the future. True, they look and feel quite basic, but they seem to work quite well without causing any ill-effects in terms of my sensitive skin.
Although I am not brand loyal when it comes to facial wipes, I usually always opt for a 'sensitive' version if there is one available because I have quite dry and sensetive skin which is very easily irritated. I've been using Tesco's own brand of face wipes on and off for a while now and only came across the 'sensitive' version a couple of weeks ago and I decided to try them and I have since re-purchased another two packs.
I use these mainly because they're such brilliant value - at just 99 pence per 25 wipes they are over a pound less than some of the more popular brands and they are just as good in my opinion. I don't really see the point in spending over the odds on something that I'll be using for 2 minutes then chucking in the bin and as I use facial wipes daily to remove makeup, more expensive brands of facial wipes can soon add up.
These wipes, along with a variety of other Tesco own brand skin care and cosmetic items can be found down the cosmetics aisle in Tesco and they can also be purchased online via Tesco's website. The wipes come packaged in a pretty basic rectangular shaped packet which is made of quite a thick plastic type of material. The colour scheme is different to the one pictured. It is very minimalistic and unisex; a white background with blue detailing in the corners and across the top and then blue font.
All of the information that a consumer needs is written clearly on the front of the packet, for example the brand and product name, the number of wipes and so on. It is also made clear that the wipes are suitable for sensitive skin as it is stated that the wipes have been specially formulated for sensitive skin. The wipes are fragrance free, dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic. Opening the pack is really easy as it simply has a thin strip of sticky plastic which once pulled off allows access to the wipes - I simply need to pull one out. The wipes do stick together so I often end up with 2-3 wipes instead of one, however I don't mind this as I am able to use them all.
The wipes themselves are very average in appearence; regtangular and white with a smooth, untextured surface - they look just like any other wet wipe/cleaning wipe really. They're made of a thin cotton-like material which is soft and gentle on my skin. Although the wipes aren't very thick, they are pretty strong and don't come apart in use, even with scrubbing motions when I'm removing my foundation or mascara. The wipes are nice and moist but not so moist that a lot of moisture drips out of them onto my face. The re-sealable packet helps keep the moisture locked in the wipes and it is important to stick it back down properly after each use to prevent them drying out.
It takes one wipe to remove my eye make-up and the wipes are suprisingly very effective at getting stubborn, waterproof eyeliner and mascara off without too much effort. If I am wearing foundation it takes two more wipes - I don't shovel foundation on but the residue and sticky texture of the foundation kind of sits on the surface of the wipes so I have to use both sides and then another wipe. The wipes get rid of all traces of makeup quickly and effeciently and they are nice and gentle against my skin. As I use these to remove makeup, I also obviously use the wipes around my eyes and they have not irritated my eyes or made them sore.
The wipes leave my skin feeling fresh and clean, with no residue of makeup at all. The moisture from the wipes doesn't leave my skin feeling wet, greasy or sticky and it doesn't leave my skin looking red and unlike some makeup wipes, these don't leave my skin with a slight sheen - thank goodness! The wipes are not at all moisturising, but they don't leave my skin feeling dried out. These are marketed as fragrance free but they do have a very slight scent which is very 'clean' - it's a subtle, pleasant smell which does not linger. The lack of smell and basic packaging means that these will appeal to men as well as women.
Overall, I highly reccommend these wipes. They're decent quality and remove makeup well and at 99p for 25 wipes you really can't go wrong!
I normally purchase Simple wipes, but only out of habit so found it very hard to resist the bargain of 70p per pack for these wipes on the Tesco online site (though if you are even more serious about your bargains then the Tesco value versions are 28p!) However the results are as you'd expect from much more expensive products.
THE PACKAGING/ PRODUCT LOOK
As with any other facial cleansing/make-up removal wipes pack, this Tesco version comes with a re-sealable label on the top of the pack to retain moisture once the pack is opened. The packaging itself is plain and simple on the whole, with a nice floral border. But as I'm sure nobody buys facial wipes for the look of the packaging, suffice to say that the crucial function performs well - the resealable label does seal in moisture and despite having been originally opened only 23 days ago my wipes have stil retained their moisture.
The actual product looks like most other wipes - white and rectangular, folded along a crease and doubled over to fit in the packaging.
To use, take one wipe and rub your skin in a circular motion paying particular attention to areas where you have applied make-up, until you are satisfied with the results. I use foundation and eyeliner and mascara every day and have never needed to use more than one wipe to remove all make-up.
I only use cleansing wipes in the evening, as I mainly use them as a make-up removal product rather than a general cleansing product, and also wash my face after using. The application of all wipes is obviously easy, but I particularly like these ones as they are very gentle on the skin, the weave is very soft and not at all abrasive. Eye make-up needs particular attention but once you have pinched and pulled the wipe down your eyelashes, and rubbed well under the lower eyelid then in my experience there has been no make-up left.
These wipes also do give a good sense that your skin has actually been cleansed, as opposed to their being full of chemicals for make-up removal that end up leaving your skin very greasy and oily after use, as I have often experienced when using other wipes.
The only complaint I have about these wipes is that after having been open a couple of days the smell of them seemed to change. According to the packaging they are fragrance free but mine smell very strange - it's almost like a dirty cloth smell, very chemical and off-putting. I am really impressed with the overall performance and value of these wipes, but the smell they have now is rather unpleasant.
THE PROMISE vs RESULTS
Essentially there are 4 promises on the packaging of this product:
1.) SENSITIVE - These wipes are very soft on the face, and not at all oily or greasy so are certainly good for sensitive skin. They also feel fresh and gentle and don't leave any sort of stinging feeling after use.
2.) CLEANSING - The cleansing this product performs is very good. There are no traces of make-up remaining after use, and my skin also feels fresh and unclogged when done - although I do always wash my face after using these wipes
3.) IMPROVED EYE MAKE-UP REMOVAL - I cannot pass a verdict on whether the eye make-up removal capabilites of these wipes are 'improved' as I haven't used them previously, but I can certainly attest to the fact that they remove eye make up very well. Most of the wipes I have used in the past have left traces of make up - either obviously sraight after use, or the next morning when you thought you had removed all the make-up the night before but then it becomes apparent that you hadn't! All in all these wipes are great at removing make-up.
4.) FRAGRANCE FREE - Whilst I suppose 'fragrance free' is technically accurate as there is no artifical scent that has been purposely added to these wipes such as cucumber, they really do have an odd smell. So although not perfumed, if you want totally scent/smell free wipes then these may not be the ones for you.
You cannot fault these wipes on value - 25 wipes currently cost 75p online (although I have heard about them being about 20p at times so keep an eye out for deals!). If you are after a cheap product that does the job better than a lot of more expensive products then I can recommend these wipes (but you may need to hold your nose!)
I would have to say I am a bit of a novice when it comes to face wipes having only previously used one brand. When I was shopping in Tesco a couple of weeks ago I noticed these Tesco Sensitive wipes on a special clearance offer at only £0.21 a pack instead of £0.99! As a result I decided to try these and see how they compared to the wipes I have used in the past.
~ What are they and who are they for? ~
These wipes are designed to remove make-up including eye make-up with relative ease. They are specifically formulated for those with sensitive skin as they are fragrance free and hypoallergenic, meaning they should cause very little irritation or reaction on your skin.
~ The Packaging ~
These wipes come in a thick plastic sealed bag like packet, where the wipes are easily accessible by peeling back the sticky label on the top, which can then be resealed to keep the wipes moist.
Personally I don't think that the packaging is particularly attractive with it's simple blue and white colouring, however as they were very low price I wasn't overly fussed with the packaging.
~ My Opinion ~
I found these wipes to be very moist to touch when you first removed one from the packaging, they had held their moisture well within the packaging. I did find that after opening the pack it didn't reseal particularly well however the wipes did still stay moist.
When I first put the wipe to my face it felt very cool which made my skin feel refreshed and clean. I was a little dubious in the first instance as the wipes didn't feel particularly thick however they held together and did not tear or rip when used.
As the wipes aren't overly thick I did feel that to remove eye make-up especially mascara it did take a few times of rubbing the wipe over my face to fully remove all my make-up. I don't wear lots of make-up so for someone who does, these wipes may become frustrating needing to use quite a few each time to fully remove make-up.
I have relatively sensitive skin and I found that I was absolutely fine using these wipes with no irritation whatsoever. As they are fragrance and alcohol free they really suit sensitive skin.
These wipes claim to cleanse, tone and moisturise and are enriched with aloe vera and cucumber. Personally I have not noticed that my skin has felt any different using these wipes to my usual products, my skin hasn't felt any smoother. As they are a low price product, even at their normal price, I wouldn't buy them specifically to tone and moisturise my skin anyway, and would invest in a better quality product for that purpose.
Overall for my use and for value for money I really cannot fault these wipes. My skin has been fine and has felt fresh and clean from use, as well as the wipes actually being able to remove my make-up. I would definitely recommend if you are wanting low priced facial wipes that do as they claim.
Although I tend to do my shopping elsewhere, I normally buy my petrol from Tesco and as I've amassed several pounds worth of Clubcard points over the past few months, I made a rare trip to my nearest Tesco store recently and discovered one or two bargains in the process.
On my shopping list were cleansing wipes. I normally buy the Simple brand which were on special offer there at 2 packs of 25 for £4. However, also on the shelf were a couple of other wipes, Nivea Visage and Tesco's Sensitive Cleansing Wipes, retailing at much less than the Simple ones, so I bought a pack of each to try out. I'll maybe review the Nivea wipes at a later date.
Price and availability:
Tesco Sensitive Cleansing Wipes are available at most of the larger Tesco supermarkets and they are currently retailing at 70p for a pack of 25 wipes.
These Sensitive Cleansing Wipes are fragrance free, dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic and also have a little sticker on the packet stating "Improved eye make-up removal". As I wear quite heavy eye make-up which generally takes some getting off, I was very hopeful of the results I was going to get from these wipes.
The pack is re-closable and has the usual peel back opening to keep the contents moist. Each wipe is enriched with cucumber and aloe vera and the claim is that they have been specially formulated to gently remove make-up, including waterproof make-up, and also to cleanse, tone and moisturise.
I won't bore you with details of the ingredients, many of which are the usual long and incomprehensible chemical names. The wipes are indeed very moist and despite the inclusion of cucumber and aloe vera which have quite distinctive fragrances, there is very little scent other than a pleasant fresh aroma. I don't use waterproof eye make-up but I do wear brown eye shadow, kohl liner and mascara, quite heavily applied and these wipes removed it all without any problem. In fact, they removed it far more easily than my usual brand.
In the past when I've used cheaper cleansing wipes, I've frequently found that they just don't do the job for which they're intended because they're too dry and too small and tend to ruck up as you wipe which necessitates using more than one wipe per cleansing session. With these ones, however, one wipe was quite sufficient to remove all my make-up and leave my face feeling clean, toned and fresh. I have to say my skin didn't feel moisturised and, in fact, it felt a little dry and tight to begin with, though the tightness didn't last very long. The fact these didn't moisturise wasn't too much of a problem though because I normally apply a separate moisturiser after cleansing anyway.
These wipes have a shelf life of 3 months and I assume that's after they've been opened. They aren't recyclable however so must be disposed of in the bin and definitely not flushed down the loo, unless you want to cause a blockage. After I've removed my make up, I tend to give the bathroom surfaces a quick swish over with the used wipe. I've just discovered whilst writing this review that they're also pretty good at freshening up the keyboard too!
I am really impressed with the cleansing quality of these wipes, as well as the very competitive price. In terms of quality and effectiveness, there is absolutely nothing to differentiate these from many of the higher priced, branded wipes and I shall certainly be buying these again. Definitely a five star product.
Usually, I purchase Boots Essentials wipes, either in the cucumber or 'original' variety, because they're good quality and inexpensive, often with the extra benefit of 2-for-1 or even 3 packets for £3 deals. However, I ran out, and wasn't going to Boots for a while, so I chose these from Tesco, as they were cheaper than the brand-named wipes in stock. I usually use wipes to wash my face, after using a facial wash or exfoliator in the shower. I sometimes use toner afterwards.
I can't remember how much I paid for the wipes; I think it may have been just over £1, although I believe large Tesco superstores stock them for 99p. There are 25 wipes in the packet, which is a pale blue-green colour. The wipes advertise that they remove waterproof make-up, and the 'sensitive' branding reassures you that they're unlikely to irritate your skin. They are fragrance-free.
The wipes are similar to the Boots own brand; they are a cotton-like substance; very thin, and transparent. They're not textured, like some of the more expensive brands of facial wipe. They are good at removing make-up, and the wipes are quite damp; just the right level of dampness. The plastic packet helps keep them as such. The wipes did not irritate my skin. They had a faint but pleasant scent, despite not being fragranced.
As I used one of the wipes, I felt a scratchy feeling across my eye area. I looked at the wipe and a small but tough piece of cotton-fibre (or something similar) was woven into it. I suppose that has a chance of happening with any brand of wipe, but I did feel it was disappointing, as it could have hurt my eye. Luckily I didn't sustain any damage to the delicate skin in that area.
In conclusion, I think these wipes are acceptable, but not comparable in quality to the Boots Essentials range; I was quite put off buying them again after finding the tough fibrous stalk in one of the wipes.
I don't normally buy make up cleansing wipes as they are normally about £4 for a small pack and therefore way out of my price range, but a quick aisle browse in Tescos showed me these for 70p, for a 25 wipe pack. They weren't even on special offer, that was their full price!
Tesco's sensitive cosmetic wipes come in a blue and white thick plastic package. The packaging is relatively simple and plain, but gives you all the information you need to know.
The top has a clear plastic sticky peel off and back on again lid. Its really important to do this properly as if it loses its stick or doesn't seal properly then the rest of the wipes dry out and are unuseable.
The wipes are very moist and smell lightly fragrant. They are quite thick and therefore do not break easily like som eof the cheaper baby wipes I have tried. They don't irritate my eyes when I have to scrub hard to get lots of make up off, although in those cases I do go through a couple of wipes. I tend to have to do more wipes than when I use make up remover / cleanser and cotton wool, so it makes it easier when I am at home just to use cleanser and cotton wool. These however are an essential for convenience use like holidays, weekends away and emergencies, or touch up jobs on your make up!
The make up wipes did not irritate my skin at all and did not leave it dry either. I can't believe these are only 70p!
I don't wear a lot of make up with the exception of some blusher and concealer. When I have time in the morning and at the weekend, I do like to put on some mascara to open up my eyes. Hence, I need to have some wipes in the cupboard to wipe my eyes clean before I head to bed.
Now, I have to be pretty careful with my skin, as it is sensitive and not everything will agree with it, but a few months ago, my Asda face wipes had finished and I was looking for a reasonable pack of face/make up wipes. I didn't want to spend a fortune, as I literally only use them to take off the mascara or eye shadow, and I certainly do not use them to clean my face, I always use a proper facewash for that. Being in Tesco at the time, I noticed that they had a pack fo 25 cosmetic wipes for sensitive skin for a mere 48p (although I noticed recently that Tesco appear to have put the price up on these).
The packaging of the product is a ligth blue/turquoise, and it states on the front that these are for sensitive skin and are fragrance free. These cosmetic wipes also claim to be 'dermatologically tested, hypo allergenic and mild & gentle'.
On the reverse of the product, Tesco states that these wipes 'have been specially formulated to gentlly ease away make up including waterproof make up, cleanse, tone and moisturise, without upsetting the skin's delicate balance'. It also says in the small print that these wipes are alcohol free.
There may be only 25 wipes in a pack, but for 48p I think this is a bargain. They do a good job at removing the mascara or any other eye make up from my eyes. They do not necessarily wipes the make up away instantly, but it does only take one wipe, although you may have to wipe a few times to get rid of all the mascara. I have had no reaction whatsoever to this product, and it is great that Tesco are doing a product especially for those with sensitive skin.
I would absolutely recommend this product as wipes to remove eye make up. I do not use them on any other part of my face to cleanse, so I cannot comment on how they would do at really cleansing your skin and keeping it soft, but they are effective at removing eye make up without bringing me out in any adverse reaction. Great wipes at a great price.
Earlier in the year, I started to suffer with dry, sore patches around my eyes which I couldn't pinpoint the cause of, and it was that which led me to first try these sensitive skin wipes. I don't normally have particularly sensitive skin but, in this instance, something was definitely irritating me and I was keen not to aggravate the problem any further. These wipes are pretty inexpensive (currently 72p but Tesco prices fluctuate a fair bit!) and therefore seemed to me to be worth a try.
The packet is fairly plain and inoffensive, as far as facial wipes go it is quite attractive as often this type of product can have a bit of a 'medicated' look, which I find quite off putting (it's actually one of my pet skin care hates! I like pretty!) In practical terms, the packet is easy to open. There is a transparent strip of plastic which pulls up to reveal the wipes lying flat underneath, so you simply 'pinch and pull' the topmost wipe each time. One thing that did impress me over time was the fact that the plastic strip was resealable. Yes, I know, they are always resealable, but I tend to find that with other brands the strip loses its stickiness long before the packet is empty, which inevitable causes the wipes to dry out and be wasted. With this product, I did not have this problem and the strip remained sticky until the wipes ran out.
The wipes themselves were very wet compared to others I have used. I imagine if you wore heavy make up this might be an advantage, but I found it too much. It left my face feeling wet, and I don't mean damp, or tacky, I mean WET. This then dried, leaving my skin feel a bit dried out and tight. When I applied moisturiser afterwards, it still felt as though there was some sort of residue on my skin, which was quite unpleasant. I suppose washing my face afterwards would have solved this, but I am a chronically lazy make-up remover, that's why I bought the wipes in the first place!
Another criticism I have of this product is the smell. I wouldn't describe them as 'fragrance free', more as unperfumed. The smell reminded me of baby wipes and was quite strong, although not exactly unpleasant. I also found the texture of these wipes quite rough, especially considering they are for sensitive skin, and I found them quite irritating to use near to my eyes. On the plus side, they did remove all traces of mascara quickly and didn't leave me with the dreaded panda eyes, so they gain a star for that!
Overall, I was not hugely impressed with these wipes but, for the price, don't feel I can complain too much. I now only use a half a wipe each time which solves the problem of them feeling too 'wet', as well as making them even more cost effective! Having said that, I wouldn't recommend them for sensitive skin as I found them quite drying and the texture too rough. Perhaps they just didn't agree with my skin but I don't think I would hurry to buy them again.
I only ever by the 'branded' face wipes if they are on offer, otherwise I find them too expensive at around £2-£3 a packet I find them too expensive so tend to buy supermarkets own brand, such as these Tescos ones.
These are Sensitive skin ones and cost around 78p, which I think is brilliant value and you get 25 wipes in each pack.
They don't really have a fragrance to them, I think this is partly due to them being sensitive, however do smell clean and fresh which is nice.
The wipes themselves feel soft to the skin, refreshing and moisturising and don't feel harsh like others. They also don't tingle my skin and neither do they make my eyes water which I find some of the harsher ones do.
They remove most of my make up easily, without having to rub or tug at the skin too hard, however removing eye make up does require a bit more rubbing. I think this is mainly due to the fact that they are sensitive so then find it harder to remove more stubborn make up like mascara.
After using this these wipes it leaves my skin leaving fresh and soft, however in the morning I did wake up with tiny panda eyes, but this is because as I found it hard to remove the eye make up I didn't want to rub too hard around the eye area.
Overall I would definitley reccomend these - especially at the crazy price they are at!
I have been using the Tesco brand of cosmetic wipes for years. I usually use a cheaper one that used to cost 28p per packet, then went up to 48p, and now seem to have disappeared from the shelves in my local Tesco altogether, they seem to be still on the website but I have not seen any in my local store for over a month so I switched to another cheapish Tesco type which is this one Tesco Sensitive skin cosmetic wipes.
Tesco sensitive skin cosmetic wipes are still good value compared to other branded wipes, at the moment they are on offer at 63p for a 25 pack, however that offer finishes on the 06/07/2010 when they will revert back to the normal price of 70p which is still not too bad.
I chose the Sensitive Skin wipes as I need to be careful what I use on my skin as it is very dry and these wipes are fragrance and alcohol free, dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic.
The wipes are packaged in a pale blue packet with a replaceable seal on the middle of the front of the packet, which needs to be peeled back so you can remove the wipes and then must be replaced immediately to re seal the packet to keep the moisture in. The seal is strong and I have never had one that will not stick back again.
I found the face wipes more than adequate to take off my makeup they are very moist and remove all traces of makeup with one wipe, however I always use two to make sure that my face is clean and the second wipe usually has no traces of makeup on it proving that the first wipe did its job.
The instructions do say to avoid direct contact with eyes, however I do use them to remove my eye makeup without any ill effects and they do take off my waterproof mascara as well, however it is personal choice as to whether you want to use the around the eyes as well. They work well for me and do not seem to dry out my skin and as I never wash my face but only use wipes go through a couple of packets a week they work out pretty cheap as well.
I would buy these again until I find the cheaper version back in stock then I would switch back as they both do exactly the same job neither one is better or worse than the other, but for now they suit me fine.
I thought i'd chance buying these cheap (78p) wipes one day when i needed face wipes as i was sick of paying around £3 for a pack.
I was really surprised when i used one and realised it was actually just as good as expensive brand face wipes. You only need one face wipe to take off all you make up and the wipes do not sting your face.
I was a bit scepticle of this product at first as i have tried cheap face wipes before and they very a complete waste of money, but this product really took me by surprise
I'd recomend this product to anyone on a budget as it is too good a bargain to miss! I also see this product on special offer on a regular basis.
This product is a lot cheaper than bigger brands, but i wouldn't nessecarily say there is much difference!
I have always been a huge fan of the Johnson & Johnsons face wipes, I loved the way that my face felt sparkly clean after using them and my skin also felt incredibly soft. I think that they product fab results and even manage to remove every trace of my indestructable waterproof mascara.
Blimey though they are expensive and at the moment, I really need to try and reduce the amount that I am spending on cosmetics. It doesn't hurt to try cheaper alternatives, sometimes you can stumble across some real gems and if not then nothing is reallly lost. I also seem to get through an awful lot of face wipes too, so if I could find one that didn't break the bank, I wouldn't get a feeling of guilt every time I pulled one from the pack.
I spotted these Tesco Sensitive Cosmetic Wipes during my weekly tesco shop and nearly had to take a second look when I saw the amazing price of 77p for a pack of 25 wipes. That seemed like a fantastic price to me, and I had my doubts that a product that cheap would actually produce the results I was after. Nevertheless, they were certainly worth a punt, so into the trolley they went.
I first used one of the wipes that very evening to remove my makeup. I swept the wipe over my face and was please to see that they seemed to be removing my makeup quite effectively. I then tackled my eye makeup and although the mascara wass quite stubborn, it did all come off. Now it did take a little more work to ensure my face was completely clean, but to be honest if I had to use more than one wipe, at this price, it really wouldn't bother me.
I am converted, and have quite a smug feeling that I am saving over £2 a week by downgrading but still getting fab results.
Well, I needed some new wipes and when I spotted the 77p price tag on these a couple of days ago, I though why not?
(All of the 'Tesco's own skin wipes and moisturisers seem to have become EXTREMLEY cheap recently, the 'exfoliating' ones were 77p per pack and on a BOGOF offer!)
I ususally use 2 a day for the morning and afternoon so nearly always find mine dry when I use the likes of 'Nivea' and 'Simple' yet when trying 'Johnsons' I found them too oily and greasy! I think these are perfect for my skin and have got just the right balance!
Well, the product is what it says, Sensitive cosmetic wipes which are designed for the more sensitive skin. Each pack contains 25 wipes and will usually last me around a fortnight which I think it great for the price. The product is designed by and for Tesco's as part of thier health and beauty range.
Tesco have gradually built up there skin range through the years, starting off with your basic wipes and moisturiser and the building up to produce different types of wipes to do all different jobs and the same with the moisturiser. With building it up, I also believe that they have built up there quality and selling products at just a snip of the price of big beauty brands which can cost between £2.99 and £7 a packet!
When I do my usual shop in Tescos the wipes are normally around £1.99 , so I though I'd rather pay the extra pound or so to get the name ones, but in there just a few days ago I notices that the wipes were anything from 37p (Vitamin E ones - BRILLIANT for dry skin) to around 87p!
This packet of 25 just cost me 77p which I was thrilled to bits with and it felt like a real bargain to me!
The packaging is nothing different as to what you would expect with any other packet of face wipes, the usual 'crinkly' material with the sticky bit on top which you open to remove your wipe and then re-seal. Saying that though I really like the packaging as it is very simple which works well on the light blue!
Personally I don't think these are fragranced too much. They are pretty plain and you almost don't smell anything which I know some people do like, when you first open you get that wiff of freshness but nothing much else in the smell department from there onwards!
I really, Really, REALLY like this product and I will make it my regular face wipe from now on. I don't find it all greasy or oily and it is not one of those really wet ones which leave your face looking shiny for what seems like forever!
It is very soft and sensitive on the skin (hence the name!) and I know that some people steer well clear of supermarkets own products but I really woulg give these ago!
On my spots:
Like all people, I occasionally get those REALLY ANNOYING spots, using these doesn't seem to make much different to those, however did clear up most of my black heads really well, so maybe it just isn't strong enough to tackle those big ones!
On removing make-up:
I apply foundation, mascara and sometimes some black eyeliner for everyday make up and this removed it easily! With some other brands it seems like I am there all day just scrubbing away which leaves my skin quite red.
It does sometimes leave little panda eyes in the morning, but only very small, so generally ace at removing make up too!
For 77p, give it ago!
This was another of my attempts to reduce how much I spend on toiletries. I've been pleased with own brand facial wipes in the past but this is the first time that I've used Tesco facial wipes.
These wipes were too dry for my liking. I prefer them to contain a fair bit of moisture so that I feel like they are doing a good job of cleaning my face, but these were quite dry and felt like they had come out of a packet that hadn't been sealed properly.
Despite my initial reservations about them being too dry, they do seem to be effective as far as keeping my face clean goes. Since I have been using them, I've noticed a good improvement in my skin (which is normally very spot-prone) to the extent that my skin broke out in a bad way when I forgot to clean my face one night. Up until that point, I hadn't had any spots since first using this and haven't had any more since.
For a fairly cheap product, these have worked great for me. The only downside is the fact that we don't have a Tesco near us (only one of those small ones that doesn't stock much) so I'll have to make a point of bulk buying to last me a while. They are a quick and easy way to keep your face clean and are affordable too. For removing make-up, they even get rid of my stubborn eye make-up and mascara without me having to rub away so they are gentle but very effective.
