Puretta Baby Wipes and Kara Refreshing Facial Wipes Review Experiment
ara came up with a fresh commercial off late and I had first seen Kara wipes may be two years back and I was mighty impressed. They had so many variants and also a sunscreen wipe for protection on the go :balle:, the best one was Deep Pore one and my other face wipe is this refreshing one with Aloe Vera and Mint Oil. Recently, I wanted to get some baby wipes (you can never get enough of them with or without a baby) and I saw an SA keeping these on the racks. She told me the Kara ones were on free offer with the Puretta ones, that is the refreshing wipes were free with the baby wipes. So, I paid some 90 rupees for 40 baby wipes and 10 kara refreshing wipes, which is a great deal. I should have stocked up, now I think. I was mighty impressed with both the wipes from the Aditya Birla group and I believe the Puretta wipes were a new release as I had seen Kara all over the place, but I saw the baby wipes for the first time.
About the Puretta Wipes (from press release):
“Introduced for the first time in India, the Puretta product portfolio includes Complete Cleaning Wipes, Germ Shield Wipes and Skin Nourishing Wipes. These wipes are safe for the baby’s delicate skin as they are alcohol free, hygienic, hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested. Since Puretta (meaning pure and diminutive) is made from Birla Cellulose, a 100 per cent natural and biodegradable fibre, it soothes the baby’s tender skin with its soft and nature-friendly properties.
PurettaTM is available in three distinct product variants. ‘PurettaTMComplete Cleaning Wipes’ can be used to clean the entire body, especially recommended for the nappy area to minimize chances of rash. The ‘PurettaTM Skin Nourishing Wipes’, with moisturizing properties, help keep the baby’s skin soft and nourished through the day. The ‘PurettaTMGerm Shield Wipes’ contain antiseptic properties to protect the baby from germs. PurettaTM is available in easy multi-use carry packs of 40 each, and is priced between rupees 90 to rupees 130 per pack. It is available at all leading stores in the country, especially baby stores”.
Info From the Pack:
Made from Aditya Birla’s group’s select plantations, each wipe is brought to you in its untouched innocence ensuring that the baby’s delicate skin is cleaned gently and safely. Its bio-degradable applicator cleanses, disinfects, and nurtures to protect your baby’s soft, sensitive skin with rich chamomile extracts so that when you wipe out dirt you also wipe in natural goodness. Alcohol free, mild fragrance. For best results, follow up with skin nourishing wipes.
My experience with it as a baby wipe is good enough. The wipes has some kind of a lather in it, which I found unique and I feel extremely happy that its not just the regular moisturising one, but also has a lather clean feel to it. Great as a botty wipe, and body wipe for babies. My baby did not get any kind of rash with it, I avoid using it on her face.
My Experience with it as a Makeup Remover Wipe:
Ideally, it should not be used as an eye makeup remover as I said it has some kind of lather in it. When I wipe my makeup off, I don’t want any kind of oil on my face left behind and this one is ideal for it and left my face little moisturized, but not with a layer of oil which I hate. I like it to remove my regular lipsticks and kajal, though I would use it for eye makeup removal only once in a while as the pack mentions avoiding contact with eyes, but I still feel it’s a good eye and skin and lip makeup remover.
In the pictures, the only makeup that is left behind is the Oriflame Stay Glam lipsticks, which is like permanent one on top of which clear gloss is applied. I am fine with it not being removed and similarly the Colorbar one is also the extra durable one, which would need bi-phase remover. The Colorbar metallic eyeliner in brown is almost like nail polish, so it will not be removed so easily with any remover. It has to be given time and rub. For the other regular makeup, I am happy with the removal in one swipe. The makeup left behind in the picture would not go off easily with even an oil-based remover. It has a very mild rose fragrance. I will definitely buy it over Johnson’s as these are DEFITNITELY MILDER than the Johnson’s one on my sensitive oily skin. It did not sting even on my sore nose after a cold.
Kara Refreshing Facial Wipes with Aloe Vera and Mint Oil:
Now, I fell in love with these instantly. These feel so fresh and light and have a light mint oil smell to it (like on the lines of a balm), but in a good way. If you are prone to colds or have oily skin, you will love these wipes. These do not leave my skin with a layer of oil, but just a fresh mild sheen to it. I do not use it for makeup removal as the mint oil may sting. For regular lipstick removal, may be sometime. All in all, it’s a real refreshing wipe with no oily residue to it. Oily skin club would love it !
For baby wipes, I would prefer these over Johnson’s as these are milder and bio-degradable and have no oily feel to. I loved it as a makeup remover too (not for your extra durable makeup like those lippies that dry after application and then you need to apply clear gloss over them).
For facial wipes, I loved kara mint oil ones for my oily skin over some of the other variants. I definitely recommend both these to you all.
