Facial wipes are something I couldn't live without. I know there a little lazy but some times I just want to get my make up OFF. It doesn't help that I have a tiny tiny sink which there is no way to wash your face in so if I want to take it out with cleansing milk and so on I have to get in the shower. Unfortunately they can get a bit expensive for what is essentially a wet baby wipe. So here's my save, spend or splurge list.
Tesco Value 25 Facial Wipes - 45p
Ok, I know Tesco Value doesn't exactly scream "lovely beauty item" but bare with me. Yes the packaging leaves a huge amount to be desired, nothing pretty about it at all, oh Tesco please loose the blue stripes. The wipe itself is moist but not wet, no excess anything in there. The wipe can be a little bit rough, it feels a little bit like an actual baby wipe. BUT it does get make up off ok. It's a great wipe for when you just have a little bit of make up on that just needs a quick wipe. However it will not shift waterproof mascara or lasting foundation. I also wouldn't recommend these for any one with sensitive skin or eyes because they can be a little stingy. Having said all that, for 45p I wasn't expecting miracles and I like having a pack in the house for when I just need a quick wipe.
SPEND / SPLURGE.
No7 Beautiful Skin 30 Quick Thinking Wipes £2 / £7
A tiny cheat here, but with a £5 No7 voucher you will pay £2, or without you will pay £7, but Boots seem to run the No7 voucher promotion 11 and a half months of the year, to the point that I would be surprised if anyone has actually ever paid full price for a No7 product. The packaging has been updated from blue to white recently, and I kind of prefer the old ones but the white is still nice. It also has a sturdy plastic lid which shuts well, which is great because nothing is more annoying than when the sticker stops being sticky and your wipes dry out half way through. These wipes are moister than the Tesco's and a little moister than most wipes I have used in the past. The wipe itself is soft to the touch, and feels completely non scratchy on the face. These wipes will remove every single scrap of make up, including waterproof mascara, and after a particularly bad experience at an Estee Lauder counter with a heavy handed make up artist, these were the only thing (including a panic buy of Boots own make up wipes, a proper shower and a generous go on my usual face wash) which would take off the Double Wear Maximum that has worked it way in to every pore in my face. These are probably my favourite make up wipe of all time, and I always use my No7 vouchers to stock up on these, as at £2 they are a pretty good deal!
