Am I the only one who is fed up of the tube-light and bulb glow of Yami Gautam? I am really irritated every time she appears on screen telling us the benefits of Fair and Lovely and subsequent fairness. Sigh! And to think that I had really liked her performance in Vicky Donor, as the sensible and independent woman. The commercials are really annoying and literally get on my nerves!
The weather has taken a turn over here. The mild cold is not only good for skin and hair, but also you can wear anything that you want, without the fear of sweating. Also, the weather is so pleasant that you don’t feel the slightest need to layer up. That’s why, the months of October, February and March are my favorites, a perfect blend of hot and cold, to flaunt all kinds of looks.
Sooooo, it’s Diwali time. With the festive time, comes the spirit of celebration, with all the “sajna sawarna for the sajna :P.” But the testing part comes when the celebrations come to an end, and it’s the time to remove the all decking up that you had done, and you are too dead tired to do so. At that time comes the savior, makeup wipes! And that is what is the subject of today’s review, Beauty Formulas Gentle To Skin Sensitive Cleansing Wipes. Read on to find out whether it is worth your bucks or not.
The Beauty Formulas Gentle To Skin Sensitive Wipes come in normal packaging for wipes, with a peel off cover in front, which can be stuck back after you have pulled out a wipe. It comes at a price of Rs. 190 for 30 wipes, so, pretty reasonable. I got it for Rs. 160 😀
The packaging is travel friendly, and you can be sure that the peel off cover will stick back securely after you have taken out a wipe. Also, it fits easily inside your medium sized handbag. I discovered the “hidden” ingredient list, which was below the flap. Since I forgot to take the picture, let me produce it here for you.

My Experience with Beauty Formulas Gentle To Skin Sensitive Cleansing Wipes:
For me, Wipes are a gift from the makeup Gods. Although I do take care that I use these sparingly when I am dead tired, or while I am on travel, but sometimes, I just pick a wipe and remove all the makeup, wash my face and sleep 😛 Everyone has the right to be lazy sometimes, don’t you think. 😉
I have used Kara wipes, which is an HG brand of wipes for most of us, and also the Johnson’s one, which I found were just about okay, nothing great. This is the first time that I have tried Beauty Formulas. The packaging and price has already got my brownie points, let’s move on to the performance.
These wipes are non scented and also, they do not have that wet or minty kind of feeling which most of the wipes (specially makeup removal ones) have. That is completely fine with me, as it clearly claims that it is for sensitive skin, and although I do not have much of a sensitive skin, I have seen that the products which are non scented and which do not have any artificial sensation, tend to work better for the sensitive skin.
I had gone out, and let me tell you what all I had on my face. My BB cream, a dash of powder on my T-zone and just a wash of blush. For eyes, I had my Deborah Milano’s neutral shadows, Colorbar Just Smoky in Just Black and Maybelline Falsies mascara. For lips, I had used Elle 18 lipstick. The reason that I am telling you this is because I can tell you how much of it actually came off while using these wipes, and how much did not.
My BB cream, compact and blush, basically all the base makeup came off with a couple of swipes. Also, the Elle 18 lipstick, as it was not a long lasting one and more of a colored balm than a long-lasting lipstick. It takes off around 30% of your eye makeup, not much. Since eye makeup is something where we all use smudge proof and waterproof products, these wipes are not strong enough to remove those, especially in case of mascara. You can sleep with the residue kajal on, but you cannot, and should sleep without removing your mascara completely. So, for your waterproof eye makeup, you can stick to your oil-free remover or baby oil, whatever suits you, as these wipes don’t do that job.
Pros of Beauty Formulas Gentle To Skin Sensitive Cleansing Wipes:

- Travel-friendly packaging.
- No artificial sensation or scent.
- These feel gentle and soft on skin.
- Does not rip out the moisture.
- Removes base makeup quite effectively.
Cons of Beauty Formulas Gentle To Skin Sensitive Cleansing Wipes:

IMBB Rating and Recommendation:
My rating for Beauty Formulas Gentle To Skin Sensitive Cleansing Wipes is 3.5/5. These are decent enough wipes, good for sensitive skin and remove your base makeup quite effectively. I don’t think I shall repurchase as these are going to last a long time, and I will revert to my dear ol’ Kara wipes after that. However, I do recommend. Give these a try if you want to try something different.
Shubh Dhanteras to you all.
