I stopped using wipes to take off my makeup a few years ago however, these jumped out at me when I was shopping in Superdrug recently. I bought them on the idea that they would be used once in a while and occasionally if I am home late and feeling lazy but I have used them everyday so far almost everyday. They have not replaced the usual Micellar Water routine for taking off my makeup but I use these before I shower in the evening to ensure that most of my makeup is removed, once I have showered I then use the Micellar Water and toner to ensure that my face is super clean before bed.
What they claim:
New Garnier Micellar Extra-Gentle Cleansing Wipes contain thin silk fibres in a thick, soft wipe.
Soaked with Micellar water, they are specially formulated for make-up removal on sensitive skin. Like a magnet, the cleansing agents capture impurities and lift away dirt from the skin. No need to rub to efficiently remove make-up.
The result: In a single step, your make-up is removed and your skin feels refreshed and soothed.
The first thing that I noticed and LOVED about these is the fact that they are really soaked in Micellar Water. It is so obvious as soon as you open the packet. The wipe is actually very thick too which means that it holds the water well and doesn’t break up in your hands. You also get 25 wipes per pack and if you use daily then this is less than a months worth so can become expensive if you were to keep repurchasing. The wipes are £3.29 from Superdrug but are currently on offer at £1.59. They do leave your skin feeling super smooth and refreshed though.
It removes my makeup well but I wouldn’t say that it is the easiest method and I don’t wear that much makeup. It takes a good few scrubs with the wipes to get all the makeup off, especially eye makeup. I also notice that when I use the Micellar Water after I shower it does still remove some of my makeup which is ok but it means that the wipes haven’t completely removed it all.
The packaging is very cute which may have been one of the reasons why I was drawn to it in the store however, I feel that because the product contains so much Micellar Water it actually needs to have a better seal. I am very concerned that the product will dry up over time which means that if you don’t use it everyday then you may have to throw it away.
Have you tried these?
