“ Brand: Boots / Type: Cleansing Wipes / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types / What it does: Cleanses, „
I recently took advantage of a Boots 3 for 2 offer in the skin beautiful range. As I was planning a weekend away I decide to buy a pack of quick thinking skin beautiful face wipes. The wipes are expensive selling at £7 for a pack of 30 wipes; however they are often of offer.
The skin beautiful range is fairly new to Boots and these wipes are very similar to Boots quick thinking 4 in 1 wipes as far as I can see. The skin beautiful wipes come in a white plastic pack with blue snap shut opening, This is a much better design than the type of closure that sticks shut as it keeps the wipes from drying out for longer.
The wipes a re a decent size measuring about 20 cm x 19 cm. They are also quite thick so don't tear easily. The wipes are quite moist and will last for 6 months once opened. The information on the pack says that theses wipes are suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin as they are fragrance free. However I can detect a slight scent to them. The information also tells me that the wipes contain vitamin B5 to help moisten and soften the skin and extracts of witch hazel and fennel to clear pores. Perhaps the boldest claim is that these wipes will even remove water proof mascara.
I don't wear a lot of make up and rarely use eye make up as it tends to irritate my eyes. However during my week end away I decided to apply a little mascara and eye liner. I used one of the wipes at the end of the evening to remove my make up. I found that they were excellent at removing foundation and lip stick and left my skin feeling soft and smooth. However when it came to the mascara the wipes left nasty black smudges around my eyes and no amount of rubbing could remove it all! In the morning my eye area was slightly red.
I do like these wipes and will buy them again for holidays. However they are not something I would use on an every day basis as they are just too expensive. Although they do a good job of removing make up and grime, they failed miserably to remove mascara.
