An Apology to Face Wipes

I have to apologise to Face Wipes for all the grief I feel like I give them. I stopped using them when I realised that they just didn’t do anything for my troublesome skin. I’ve recently been giving the Ole Henriksen wipes and they’ve completely changed my opinion on face wipes.

The Ole Henriksen Nurture Me Makeup Removing Wipes smell dreamy, which is a weird thing to say about a wipe, but they smell damn good. They remind me a bit of Calpol though which is odd. Soaked in an African Red Tea, Pineapple & Papaya Fruit Extract, Borage & Moringa Seed Oil makeup removing solution there are no nasties. They remove every single dot of makeup quickly and efficiently. Waterproof mascara slides right off with minimal effort. Ole Henriksen Grease Relief Cleansing Cloths are oil free and designed for cleansing and pore refining in one step. Packed full of AHA’s and soothing Eucalyptus to deeply cleanse the face in one step. The cloths are textured and but have a luxe feel, all while being super soft and smooth on the skin.

I still cleanse after using these, but I wholehearted really recommend them and for wipes they are brilliant. At £12 for 30 wipes they aren’t cheap, but if you want wipes and a skin friendly lazy cleanse. Get these!

  2. These sound like they smell amazing. That price may be a bit steep for me to try them just yet though!

  5. I was in Sephora one time getting a foundation sample color matched and the woman used an Ole Henriksen wipe and it smelt so. darn. good. I can see why people like these just for the smell alone!

  6. These would be ideal to have on hand for after a night out when I can never be bothered doing a full on cleansing routine! I agree that usually face wipes are the enemy when it comes to a good cleanse but they're better than nothing surely!

  7. Eeeek as good as they sound, £12 is a bit steep for some face wipes! I do wanna smell them though, intrigued!

  8. The first thing I'm doing when I'm not a student anymore is investing in some high end face wipes! The price is steep, but I imagine it's worth it for something you'll end up using daily. xx

  9. These do sound fab! A bit of an investment though, but I guess it would be worth it if you like using face wipes!

  10. I'm so curious to try these! However I can't quite justify £12 for face wipes at the moment, even if they are brilliant!

  16. I love the First Aid Beauty Face Wipes, but they are a bit expensive for makeup remover wipes. I'll have to try these out instead next time. Thanks for the great review!

  19. These would be perfect for those nights where I get into bed and then realise I haven't cleansed, and the effort at that point seems way too much haha. Would be great if they were a little cheaper.

  20. I was one of those people who ditched face wipes after hearing bad things, I think it's easy to get sucked in by the opinions of others, when they're not necessarily fact! I love the Yes To... Grapefruit Brightening Wipes as a skin cheat/treat recently!

  21. These sound pretty amazing...not quite sure I could part with £12 for face wipes though!

  22. Eh, 12 is a but high, but sometimes you just gotta treat yo self! I like to grab for these when I don't have a ton of makeup on and just skip cleansing afterwards.
