Whilst I recognise their convenience, I'm not the biggest fan of cleansing wipes because I simply don't feel that they offer a sufficiently effective cleanse. I usually advise people to use a cleansing water in place of wipes when they need a quick method of cleansing that's a step up from wipes. However, brands have recently started offering Micellar Cleansing Wipes which combine the best of both and I was intrigued to see if they'd be any better than standard wipes. I picked up the B. Pure Sensitive Micellar Cleansing Wipes recently when they were on 2 for 1 offer in Superdrug. The wipes are designed to cleanse, tone, refresh & soothe thanks to the inclusion of witch hazel, vitamin E, aloe & cucumber extracts.
On first impressions, I liked the packaging. I appreciated that the pack has a clip fastening to prevent the wipes drying out and what's more, I liked that it was easy to pull out one wipe at a time as they're not folded in a concertina effect. The packaging states that the wipes are alcohol free and suitable for those with sensitive skin, as well as being vegetarian & vegan friendly.
The wipes themselves are made of textured fabric but weren't rough & in fact, felt very soft on my skin (softer than the basic cotton wool I use with cleansing waters). I didn't notice any exfoliating effects (& the packaging doesn't claim this as a benefit). Despite not being overly saturated with solution, I found that the wipes were easy to glide over my skin smoothly and felt refreshing to use, in the same way that cleansing waters are. B. Pure Sensitive Micellar Cleansing Wipes are fragrance free.
As they're not particularly saturated with solution, I was cynical as to whether the wipes would live up to the claims that they provide "effective gentle cleansing" & that they "dissolve makeup". As such, I was both pleasantly surprised & highly impressed to note how effectively they removed surface makeup, including long-wearing formulas which I usually need to remove with oils.
Following use, I couldn't detect any residue from the wipes on my skin & I needed to moisturise.
I almost can't believe that B. Pure Sensitive Micellar Cleansing Wipes cost just £1 for a pack of 25 wipes. I feel that they offer fantastic value for money and would recommend checking them out.
