Five of the best facial cleansing wipes
Published 19/04/2014 | 02:30
Yes, okay, so it's the lazy option to make-up removal, but we lead busy lives, and sometimes a situation presents itself where we simply have no choice. Like say, festivals, late nights, times when too much alcohol has been consumed.
The way I see it, it's better to take it off with a wipe than not take it off at all. Also, the latest wipes on the market have improved no end, and are laced with skin-boosting ingredients, like The Body's Shop Vitamin E wipes, which as the name suggests are infused with Vitamin E to soothe and refresh the skin. Also, wipes on the market now are geared towards specific skin types. Olay's 4-in-1 is tailored for people with oily/combination skin.
If you're planning on going to a festival and you plan on wearing a lot of make-up, invest in Stila's Ready for Take-off Wipes. They're great at removing even the most stubborn waterproof warpaint. They are also great for gym-bunnies who, understandably, don't like to work out with a face full of make-up.
Inglot's Milk & Tonic will leave your skin clean and soft, so soft that you could probably justify going moisturiser-free. And because they exfoliate as well as cleanse, keep Simple's Exfoliating Wipes in your car for mornings that you're late for work.
