Some beauty experts would say using facial wipes to remove makeup is a BIG NO, NO. The truth be told, I love using facial wipes to remove my makeup every night. They are just so convenient and easy to use, I’d probably sleep in my makeup each night if I didn’t use them. This is how much I rely on them. But my only qualm, apologies there is a but, is facial wipes leave my skin feel tight and dry after each use. Even facial wipes directly aimed at dry, sensitive skin like mine, I still experience the same dryness. This is were the beauty experts say “I told you so, never use facial wipes! They strip your skin of its natural goodness!”.
So when I was offered Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Wipes to try courtesy of BzzAgent. Well I was expecting to like them, more for convenience as opposed to enriching my skin.
On first opening the pack of 25 wipes, I noticed the wipes felt pretty much like all the rest but a bit more moist to touch. Each wipe has a soft perfume scent which is a very pleasant fragrance. The wipe removed all makeup easily and quickly with no need to rub my face, even tough waterproof mascara came off in one go. Normally it takes me three attempts to remove with my usual brand. As the wipe glided over my face, it felt instantly moisturised. I never once felt dryness or tightness in my skin, I also noticed some brands leaves my face slightly over sensitive with red blotches on my cheeks and forehead. The Garnier facial wipes kept my skin calm and neutral looking. After using only one wipe to remove and cleanse my face, my skin looked shiny, healthy and glowy.
Verdict: I originally thought the Micellar Oil infusion was a gimmick but it does add moisture and nourishment back into my skin while still removing impurities. I found my usual brand of facial wipes would strip my skin of impurities and dry it out. But now I will certainly start looking out to buy these. Garnier are always a good beauty brand but the Garnier Micellar Oil Infusion Facial Wipes are a clear step above the rest.
