FEMFRESH NATURAL BALANCE CLEANSING WIPES
This is one of those products that a lot of us use and yet when it comes to talking about them we seem to go into a small shy child mode, blush, look at the floor or try and avoid the topic or there are the type of people who try and come up with magic "special words" for things as if calling them something different makes it less difficult for them to talk about! Why? I do not know, because half the time the other person has no idea what they are talking about and they end up doing the "you know!, the things for ...." line. Always makes me laugh playing a game of guess the product or ailment!
ABOUT THE PRODUCT ....
FemFresh is a company that specialises in products specifically produced for women, their phrase is "expert care for down there!" In a nutshell though the company produces products to be used for the care of women's private area's, from shower gels through to wipes, they have been designed to have a mild PH level that should not cause any irritation to the skin.
Their Natural Balance cleansing wipes are basically like a moist toilet wipe, they are available in two pack sizes 10 or 25 wipes.
The wipes I use are the smaller 10 tissue pack, they come in a small packet that looks pretty much like any pack of hand wipes, the pack is white with the orange Femfresh logo across the centre of the pack. Also over the middle of the logo, the pack has a small sticky plastic seal that you peal back to open and then can stick back down. The wipes do not have any scent to them that I can detect (I say that because I am full of hay fever atm so the nose is not working it's best!), they are white in colour and about the thickness and feel of your average handy wipe to be honest. They are thinner than say the Andrex washlets but not to thin to cause any problems wiping.
I really use these wipes as emergency handbag toilet wipes, there is nothing worse than standing in the que for the lady's toilets only to sit down and realise that there is no toilet roll in the holder! I do not know about the rest of you but I really am not one for bellowing to the stranger in the next cubicle and asking if they can pass me some loo roll under the door!
I know many people reading will be thinking why not just carry some tissues? Well to be honest I do carry some dry tissues as well, but we have used moist toilet tissues in the home for many years and when it's warm and sticky, time of the month or worse the good old Anti biotics have caused yet another case of thrush, then wet wipes really are much nicer, they leave the skin feeling fresh and more moisturised so are my preferred choice.
The wipes tend to be around £1.50 for a packet of 10 although I have been picking them up for the last few months for £1 in several pound stores. The larger wipes appear to retail around £3.50.
I will also mention that the wipes have also had a recent revamp and are now white and blue, however the packs I own and have recently bought from the pound store are still the old design.
I really could not do without these wipes, they really do leave you feeling clean and refreshed although I will note that the sensation of using a wet wipe rather than dry paper can take some getting used to, once you are it really does feel so much fresher. I have had no issues using these, no cases of irritation or anything. They have never dried out on me once opened although I will admit 10 wipes does not go far so they are not open that long but they have always remained sealed and wet once opened. The 10 pack is flushable (I am not sure about the 25, I would assume they are but I would suggest checking the packet) although it does state never to use more than one tissue per flush.
Would I suggest these wipes? Yes, they are really handy, very discrete and perfect for your handbag. The only thing I have an issue with is the cost, they are expensive.
Would I use them again? Well I have been using them for years and as long as they make them I can not see me stopping using them so yes!
Now for stars! I am torn between taking a star off for the cost, I do find them expensive for what they are, however I do value them enough to repeat purchase them so I think I am going to go with the 5 stars out of 5.
Summary: Really good product that does as advertised.
