The Best Wipes Money Can Buy!


How busy do we all get? Extremely! And as much as I love a lengthy pamper, it’s great to just freshen up and go sometimes. I have discovered some truly brilliant wipes lately; that all do a vital beauty job, all in an absolute jiffy. Fast, a little wasteful, yes, but a Godsend!

First up- the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Oil Infused Cleansing Wipes. Now, we all know that face wipes, as handy as they are; aren’t the best tool for the general well-being of your skin.

They are a quick fix, best used when you are intoxicated, and you should still cleanse your face properly afterwards really. However, I have to say, these wipes are a little different. Firstly, the texture is SO soft. They almost feel like a cloth on your skin. And because of the oil ingredient, they are much wetter than regular wipes, and your you can easily remove eye make-up, with no need for rubbing. I would classify these as a luxury wipe, and your skin feels supple and refreshed afterwards, without drying it out like many others do. I love these, and will continue using them as a mini cleanse before my regular routine begins. Great for stubborn eye-make up too.

I don’t know about you, but my biggest bugbear regarding fake tanning, is when it comes off at a later date, and its patchy. God, I detest it!! No matter how hard you scrub, it just makes it look scaly and quite frankly, unsightly. However, I tried these ingenious Exfoliate Double Sided Body Wipes from Model Co. recently and WOW. I was rather sceptical at first- I just thought it was a glorified wet wipe that is simply packaged in a nice pink packet. Alas, how wrong I was! These double-sided wipes contain two parts, one side has a more abrasive texture, which you use to gently buff away the dead skin cells, and once you’ve done that, the other side is smooth and gently glides over the skin, actually removing the tan colour. I gave it a go, and it removed my stubborn, left over tan so quickly and speedily, and left a pleasant fragrant residue that absorbed into the skin. I was massively impressed! Not a bad price either.

Lastly- this is for laziest of girls, pro make-up artist look away now! I know how imperative it is to wash your brushes, but I have to set aside ages to actually do it- it’s such a laborious task! I lather up baby shampoo and scrub at them, leaving them overnight to dry. (FYI A make-up artist told me this method once and I’ve never forgotten it) But hey, I’m going to say it- I forget sometimes! This is where Eco Tools Makeup Brush Cleansing Cloths come in. This are the shizzle! Firstly, they are dermatology tested, so they don’t contain any nasty ingredients, everything is natural here, and great for your skin. There are plant based ingredients in these, including cucumber and algae, which is always good to know. Again, they do what they say on the packet. You remove the cloth, and gently rub the bristles of your dirty brush until the indented make-up residue is gone. You the leave them to air dry for a few mins, and away you go! I love the fresh smell, and the fact it’s such a fool-proof method, a quickand easy way of cleansing your brushes and keeping them super hygienic. They are a great price and contain an impressive amount of liquid, so you can use them on a full set of brushes, not just one. I am a huge fan!
