It’s funny how tastes change over time. When facial wipes first came out I had no interest in them. I didn’t see the purpose of them. I bought a pack here or there but they’d often dry out for lack of use. That’s changed and I have a variety of facial wipes and use them for different purposes. My latest favorite is by Ole Henriksen and it’s their Truth to Go Cleansing Wipes which were sent to test.
I use wipes in a variety of ways.
1) To refresh my skin during the day.
2) To remove makeup instead of washing it off.
3) As a blogger, to remove the swatches covering arms and hands.
4) To “wash” my hands before eating out.
5) To wipe off my little guy and his very sticky hands.
With the Ole Henriksen Truth to Go Wipes I like having the 10 pack ($6) in my purse and the 30 pack ($15) in my bathroom. It’s not always convenient for me to get to a bathroom if I have a 2 year old in tow but with a pack of these wipes in my purse I can grab them and clean my hands off. I am very fussy about scent so if I forget his unscented baby wipes then I have my own orange scented wipes to take care of us.
Since I’m the ‘queen of hot flashes’ (an unwanted role in my life) I often need to wipe my face in a very gentle way. I don’t want to scrub, I just want to refresh. I’ll sometimes have mascara or eyeliner dripping down – and it’s seriously not a pretty picture. Ole Henriksen helps remove the grime without removing all my makeup. They contain essential fatty acids too that nourish the skin. Plus they are refreshing for me to use after an episode.
At the end of the day, I just don’t always feel like removing all my makeup. If I’m tired it’s easier to use a Truth to Go wipe to remove my makeup than it is for me to stand at the sink. While these are made to remove eye makeup too, they only help me on certain days. Since I wear an intense eye most days I’ll often need to start with a specific eye makeup remover and then get the remainder off with my Ole Henriksen wipe. I like to do that since they have Vitamin C and micro algae which helps brighten, firm and smooth the texture of skin.
I’m not going to pretend I don’t know that a lot of people use baby wipes in place of cosmetic wipes but unless money is a big issue I’d save the baby wipes for the kids. Using Ole Henriksen’s Touch to Go Cleansing Wipes is better for your face. They have skin care ingredients like the Vitamin C and micro algae mentioned plus green tea and alpha hydroxyl acids. They are formulated WITHOUT parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOs and triclosan. Personally I have one face and I want to use products with ingredients I trust and that are made for me. Ole Henriksen has made these for people like you and me and I’m thanking them for doing so. — Marcia
