Every time I stroll through Boots there is always one brand that I am drawn towards. I'll give you some clues as to who it is. Firstly, they have super cute and girly packaging, the products are all labelled with quirky names and every product in the range smells absolutely divine, no matter what type of potion it is!
So, have you guessed it yet? Of course, it's Soap & Glory.
As I glanced down the aisle, I noticed that unusually the Soap & Glory display was looking rather full for a change. And, it was the hot pink packaging that drew my inquisitive side over to have a look.
I had never tried any of the facial wipes in the range before so decided to purchase the Soap & Glory Clear Here Cleansing Cloths (Deep Pore Purifying T-Zone).
I use facial wipes daily to remove the majority of my make-up before using my Clarisonic Mia, and although I use them frequently it was one product that I never gave much thought about.
So, after reading the description which said, '3-in-1 cleansing, toning and skin smoothing cloths. Infused with slow release Poreshrink-RS™ acid free exfoliator formulated to fight spots and blackheads'. I decided to give them a try as I was suffering with blackheads and open pores on and around my nose.
The majority of facial wipes on the market do not have these sorts of claims, which is why I was wishful yet also fairly sceptical.
Another aspect that helped me decide to use these is that they are created specifically for oily and combination skin.
Unfortunately, three days into using these cleansing cloths my skin wasn't thanking me for it. These reacted with my skin; they left me with dry patches on parts of my cheeks and also breakouts across my chin and forehead. My skin felt as rough as sandpaper. I will point out that my skin is incredibly sensitive, which is why I usually go for products that use natural and active ingredients.
Obviously, do not take my review as the one and only. I have heard and read some very positive reviews, so it shows that with any product every skin type will react differently.
Overall they removed my make-up very well, especially because the cloths are textured and therefore also give your skin some exfoliation. The blackheads on my nose were also reduced, so if this is something you a particularly worried about I would recommend these.
If you want to give these a try they are available from Boots for £4.50, although at the moment there is currently a 3-for-2 offer on Soap & Glory products. There are twenty five wipes in the resealable packet.
Although this product didn't work for me I will still continue to be a Soap & Glory lover.
Are there any facial wipes you would recommend?
