St Ives Refreshing Facial Cleansing Wipes ♥

Hello ladies! I finally found a bit of motivation to write a blog post, I'm not used to working its making me so tired! :(

(For those of you who don't know I'm doing a work placement at WHSmith through the job centre to help me to get some work experience as I'm not having very much luck with finding a job. Boo for free labour but if it helps me then it will be worth it!)

Anyway, on with the review..

I always used to use baby wipes to take off my makeup but after receiving a pack of these as a stocking filler at Christmas (this is my second pack) I've realised how much better proper facial wipes are.

St Ives Refreshing Cleansing Wipes for all skin types thoroughly cleanse, tone and refresh your face area and neck, effectively removing all traces of make up, even waterproof mascara. Gentle enough to be used around sensitive eye area. 100% alcohol and oil free. Contains calming chamomile to leave your skin feeling soft and supple.

I'm not sure if these actually do remove waterproof mascara because i don't really use waterproof mascara or take my eye make up off with these, i use my home made eye make up remover to do that (which i shall do a post on). Overall though these are excellent at removing make up, even the stubborn Revlon Colourstay which is sometimes hard to remove. They are also very, whats the word.. Wet? I know that sometimes face wipes tend to not have enough moisture in them which is very annoying because you feel like you have to use more than one wipe or wash your face afterwards, and although i do wash my face after i use these i feel that if i was having one of those days where i just can't be bothered going through the whole routine of washing my face that using one of these wipes would remove all of my make up and it would be enough.

The name is very fitting as i feel they do leave your face feeling very refreshed and soothed. I think its great that they are alcohol and oil free, they don't leave your face feeling dry or oily which is also a must if your just going to use only these to remove your make up.

What face wipes are you currently using?

Thanks for reading, commenting, and following! :)
