Behold the new-generation face wipes for quick and easy cleansing

face.jpg

Mention the words ‘face wipe’ to any dermatologist or skincare expert and watch them recoil in fear. “They just spread dirt over the face without removing it,” they say. “They’re too harsh for the sensitive skin of the face,” they claim. The beauty world has been bashing face wipes ever since their inception.

And while we’re all aware that wipes aren’t really a worthy alternative to, you know, actually washing, there are certain occasions that call for them.

Namely when one casual drink turns into five and spending ten minutes standing over the sink splashing tepid water at your face is far less appealing than bed. Or at a festival, when that sink is all but a distant memory of more hygienic times.

Conveniently enough, a new slew of gentler, more sophisticated wipes are now hitting shelves to help us in our quest for easy, quick-fix cleansing.

The new class are drenched in technology, innovation and hardworking formulas, so if you’re going to skip an actual face wash, these are the wipes you can rely on… 


Clinique Take the Day Off  Micellar Cleansing Wipes

Clinique Take the Day Of Micellar Cleansing Wipes

£16 for 50

Clinique’s new micellar water wipes don’t feel as wet as others, but still manage to grab hold of every last morsel of make-up and peel it off the face without leaving any redness. 


Simple Kind to Skin Facial Cleansing Wipes

Simple Kind to Skin Cleansing Wipes

£3.29 for 25, coming soon 

Simple’s new wipes are dual textured: one side is silky soft to brush over the cheeks and forehead, and the other side has a slightly raised texture that will pick up pesky eye make-up. Plus the pack has a stronger seal, meaning it retains 44% more moisture than before. May you never come across a dry wipe again. 


Lauren Napier Cleanse Wipes

Lauren Napier Cleanse Wipes

£5 for 5

These individually wrapped wipes from Lauren Napier are about as chic as a wet wipe can get. Pricey they may be, as they come in single sachets, there’s no fear of them drying out, and for holidays, they mean you can pack lighter, taking only as many wipes as you’ll need. 


Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution Make-up Removing Wipes

Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution Wipes

£7 for 25

Now Bioderma’s cult micellar water cleanser comes in wipe format. So drenched, it's clear they haven't scrimped on their hypo-allergenic, alcohol-free formula. Plus, they are formulated with soothing allatoin, which will remedy any irritation that comes with cleansing.
