Speed Review: Ole Henriksen Nurture Me Cleansing Cloths
One of my earliest blog posts here on Skin Deep was a review of Ole Henriksen's Truth To Go Cleansing Wipes and so whilst I don't rate wipes as an effective cleansing method, I was intrigued to revisit ones by Ole Henriksen. Today's review is of the brand's Nurture Me Makeup Removing Cleansing Cloths, which contain Moringa and Borage Seed oils and are designed to remove all traces of waterproof makeup, including waterproof mascara. Whilst I don't use waterproof mascara, I do wear a full face of long-wearing makeup on most days so I was keen to see whether these would live up to the claims.
I liked the packaging which features the bold colours signature to Ole Henriksen. I like that, despite being a celebrity facialist brand, the packaging is fun and not too clinical. What's more, I appreciated the functionality of the clip fastening which particularly appeals to me because I don't use wipes on a daily basis so I like that this prevents them drying out. Along with the clip, there's also a sticker fastening.
The directions were clear and I noted that the wipes are suitable for use over the delicate eye area. I appreciated that the wipes were easily removed individually, rather than in a concertina fashion. They have a pleasant fruity fragrance.
The wipes themselves are good quality & passed my "tear test". They are sufficiently moist so as to remove makeup rather than feeling as though it was simply being moved around my face. I was impressed that just one wipe worked effectively to remove my makeup, including eye makeup. Whilst they are more expensive than the average wipes, I felt that only having to use one wipe meant that they're relatively good value for money. They didn't leave a residue on the skin following use.
On the whole, I was impressed with Ole Henriksen Nurture Me Cleansing Cloths & whilst I don't go so far as to recommend cleaning wipes as a general rule, these are amongst the most effective makeup removing wipes which I've tried. Despite being initially cynical, I do feel that they delivered on the claims and I would consider repurchasing.
A pack of Ole Henriksen Nurture Me Cleansing Cloths contains 30 "satin spun" cloths and costs £12.
