Face Wipes... A Beauty Blogger's Marmite?!

Hi Guys!!

Love them or Hate them?
Since becoming a Beauty Blogger, I have read, heard and seen so many mixed opinions on Face Wipes, with the majority of skincare guru's shunning the little pieces of damp cloth to fingers, late drunken evenings and festivals! 
However, the shops keep selling them, the skincare brands keep releasing their own version and SO many of my friends only use face wipes to remove their makeup on a daily basis. 

Me personally, I choose to use face wipes on a daily basis which may seem strange considering I am a skincare addict, but do not fear, my precious cleansing milk and toner does not get neglected at all. 

So now your probably confused right? 
I use my face wipes to get off as much make-up as I possibly can before using either my miscellar water by Caudalie (if I'm wearing alot of make-up) or I will go straight to my Decleor cleansing milk and tonifying lotion. I realised that when I was only using my cleanser and toner I was using alot of product, it takes quite alot of cleansing milk to get mascara off and to make sure all that make-up is gone I usually had to repeat the process so one evening after being fed up of this never ending routine I decided that I was going to commit a beauty blogger crime and use my face wipes. This way I get off a good 60% of my makeup, so the majority of my foundation and eye shadow and it softens my mascara. This means that when I come to use the cleansing milk it takes half as much product and half as much time to remove the entirety of my makeup. 

So don't feel guilty if you use face wipes, we all do it from time to time, but do be aware that no matter how hard you scrub your skin with those things you won't remove all of your make-up. 

My favourite face wipes have been pictured above, I have tried Elemis face wipes for £5.95, I've tried the Nivea face wipes at a more reasonable £2 but these bad boys are actually from Savers and are 99p. 
I don't know why but these wipes are the best I've tried and I go back to them time and time again. The wipe itself is soft, they are actually wet rather than vaguely damp so they do get manage to get some (if not most) of my makeup off in one go. They are formulated for sensitive skin so they don't sting my eyes like some do AND they are enriched with Pro-Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E. 

What do you think of face wipes? Do you have any particular favourites?
Let me know!



  1. I do the same as you - I use a wipe, then I'll cleanse; tone and moisturise afterwards x


    1. I just find it so much easier! I also use so much less cleansing milk aswell!

  2. I'm against wipes they are bad for the environment and contain toxic ingredients but if you are happy using them I ain't going to stop you! :)

    1. That's fair enough :) Face wipes really are a love them or hate them product! :)
