Kleenex Facial Cleansing Wipes

For a while now I’ve been using Johnson’s Daily Essentials makeup wipes.  However after my last pack ran out I decided to do some shopping around and went for the Kleenex Facial Cleansing Wipes as Sainsbury’s had a special introductory offer.

The Good
I have to say, I wasn’t expecting to be as impressed with these as I am.  I’d got very fond of my Johnson’s wipes and I didn’t think anything else would match them.  The Kleenex wipes are totally different from any other makeup wipe I’ve used before; they’re stronger and also textured.  I find that they leave my skin feeling cleaner than any other wipe, they certainly do a good job of removing any trace of makeup, even mascara.  

Upon purchasing the wipes I was a little concerned that Kleenex only have one variety of wipe, as I usually go for the type that is for sensitive skin.  So I was really pleased that these wipes are marketed as extra gentle and are suitable for those of us with sensitive skin.  So far I’ve been really pleased with how my skin has reacted to these.  Usually after removing my makeup with a wipe my face stays rather red and agitated for a while, but with these it calms down really quickly.

The wipes are made from ‘ecoform natural fibres’; they’re constructed from 65% cellulose from certified sources.  The Kleenex website says: Ecoform contains natural fibres from certified sources, has a lower carbon footprint, requires less energy and water to make, and the whole process to produce them creates less waste.  So these are a great choice for those of us wanting eco-friendly beauty products.

The Bad 
The only negative point I can find about these is that they don’t moisturise as much as my old Johnson’s wipes.  It’s not that they leave my skin feeling particularly dry after, but with the Johnson’s wipes I didn’t feel the need to moisturise afterwards (however those were the only wipes that I’ve found moisturise enough to do so).  

I also really wish these were a little cheaper, but then again I think that about most things!  These are priced at £2.99 for 24 wipes, which is a standard price for this sort of product.

The Verdict – 9/10
Overall I would definitely buy these again.  The cleansing ability by far outweighs the lack of moisturisation these wipes provide and I’m really pleased that I’ve found a makeup wipe that is less damaging to the environment.

Have you tried any of the Kleenex cleansing range?

  1. I haven't tried these but I have tried their eye make up removal wipes. They did remove my eye make up well but they were so scratchy xthemusingsofflorence.blogspot.co.uk/
