St. Ives! Whenver I hear, see and think of this brand, I can only think of those efficient scrubs it offers! It’s the first scrub that I have used, okay, done! This post is not about any scrub, but it’s about cleansing wipes from St. Ives, really? I felt the same way when I saw these wipes in the store. I didn’t know that it has paved into many other categories, but it’s definitely good to see two variants of cleansing wipes from St. Ives. Read on for more details on refreshing cleansing wipes.
St. Ives Refreshing Facial Cleansing Wipes for normal and combination skin thoroughly cleanse and tone your face and neck area, effectively removing all traces of make-up, even waterproof mascara. Gentle enough to be used around sensitive eye area. The formula is 100% alcohol free, and contains naturally calming chamomile extracts to leave your skin feeling soft and supple.
My Experience with St. Ives Refreshing Facial Cleansing Wipes:
St. Ives offers cleansing wipes for normal and combination skin and for dry and sensitive skin. I have oily skin but as I don’t suffer with a greasy texture, I picked the former one. The packaging is similar to other cleansing wipes from across various brands. The wipes are sealed in a white plastic wrap. The wipes hold enough moisture needed to remove the makeup, not so dry and not so wet, just the right amount. There are 35 wipes in one pack which will easily last more than a month.
I have always used makeup remover liquids and micellar water, but never cleansing wipes. Only after using this product, have I realized that these are so convenient to use. It’s effective, quick and simple; you have a readymade tissue waiting for you to remove your makeup in a jiffy. How cool is that! These are mostly preferred when you are travelling. Oh, it’s such a good thing? Isn’t it? No messing with a cotton ball or cleansing milk or creams!
First things first, the wipes are extremely soft and do not harm your skin at all (unless you rub it against your makeup quite hard!). One cloth wipe gently removes makeup in a couple of minutes. I wear light to medium makeup, so for beauties who love to wear heavy makeup, may need up to two wipes to clear the skin completely off makeup. The wipes are of medium density, so you will not have any issue holding or using it proficiently.
However, you need to be careful to remove your eye makeup slowly, lightly and smoothly. Many of us have a habit to rub a little vigorously around the eye area. Please don’t do it; even if the wipes are suitable for sensitive area or skin because when it comes to our beautiful eyes, we need to be careful as our skin around the eye is quite thin, fragile and delicate comparatively.
It has been 15 days that I am using these wipes and I am not facing any issue so far. I usually apply lipsticks, blushes, highlighters and complete eye makeup and yes, it removes makeup quite efficiently leaving no residue. Oh, yes these wipes are not very dry or wet; it holds the right amount of moisture leaving skin smooth ready for cleansing.
It is suitable for normal/combination skin, you are not left with any oily residue and your skin doesn’t feel greasy, messy or irritated. It is good for sensitive skin as this product is alcohol free. It is filled with chamomile extract leaving your skin clean, neat and fresh for your cleansing process. So overall, this is a wonderful product with no frills and fancies, just very effective at removing makeup properly. GO, get it. This product is also available for dry skin.
