For today's post I've partnered with WaterWipes Sensitive Facial Wipes to bring you an exciting giveaway where you could win a three month supply of the wipes. First off let's talk about the wipes and what makes them different from every other brand of face wipes.
I have a confession to make- I don't hate face wipes. Most skincare experts will tell you to stay away from them and that they are bad for your skin and I do agree with that if all you are using is a face wipe. I like them to remove my make up as I always like to take all my make up off and then use a cleanser. I used to use face wipes all the time as it was the easiest way of taking off my face make up however for the past couple of years I converted to a make up remover and cotton wool.
What got me excited about WaterWipes is that they are made by an Irish company, Irish Breeze and I always like to try out Irish made products and support Irish companies when I can. Secondly their main attraction is that they claim to be 'The World's Purest Wet Wipe'. Looking at the ingredients list on the back, I can see that it's completely true, there are only three ingredients in WaterWipes: 99.9% Purified Water which is done through a mechanical process rather than chemically; Grapefruit Seed Extract, which is a natural biocide that keeps the wipes fresh and Dead Sea Minerals, that are a natural moisturiser. The fact that they are fragrance free and contain only natural ingredients make them perfect for anyone with sensitive skin or skin conditions.
As they are a water based product, I find them best at removing water-based make up. If you use waterproof mascara or long lasting foundations or concealers you may need to put some make up remover onto the wipes and use them as a substitute for cotton wool which is what I've been doing when I'm wearing something like Estée Lauder Double Wear Light foundation and I find it's a great way of keeping my skin from feeling too dry. They are also textured as you can see below which I find helps to remove make up and is slightly exfoliating.
WaterWipes are available at the very reasonable price of €3.49 in Boots, Tesco, Dunnes Stores and plenty of other retailers and pharmacies. You can find your nearest stockists on their website.
If you're interested in trying out WaterWipes, the lovely people at Irish Breeze are offering 12 packs (a three month supply) for me to give away to one lucky person. Unfortunately this giveaway is only open to residents of the Republic of Ireland.
