Hello lovely IMBB readers!
Today, I am here with the review of a product that has become a staple in all of my carry bags; be it a handbag, gym bag, makeup pouch or a travel tote. I essentially carry these wipes everywhere with me, all the time. The product is ‘The Body Shop Vitamin E Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes’. Read on, dear friends, to find out why this product is one of my best go-to products.
Keep these tucked in your gym bag for quick post-workout cleansing. Convenient and easy to use cleansing wipes that remove make-up and impurities, cleanse, tone, moisturize and protect the skin, leaving it feeling refreshed, soft and smooth.

My Experience with The Body Shop Vitamin E Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes:
I have been using these wipes for some time now, and this is my third pack. This basically shows how much I love this product. These wipes have a cute and practical pink packaging. I really appreciate the fact that The Body Shop tries to source community fair trade products as much as possible. And, I the fact that these wipes are biodegradable makes the brands earn more respect from me.
These wipes are enriched with the goodness of Vitamin E and belong to the celebrated Vitamin E range of The Body Shop. Vitamin E, as we all know, is a great antioxidant. Actually, I remember studying in Biology how some scientists tested antioxidant property of Vitamin E in cells to stall the cell death!
Anyway, keeping that small trivia aside, these facial wipes are gentle and do not irritate my sensitive skin. However, people with acne prone or oily skin should not start using it without a patch test. But, for other skin types, this product is fairly safe to use.
Yes, I carry these wipes with me all the time, everywhere, but I still have not made a habit of using them very often. As I genuinely feel that one cannot substitute the usage and importance of water with these wipes. Still, I keep these wipes with me as a backup, when water is unavailable and when my skin needs some good pick me up.
The best use, in my opinion, of these wipes is as a makeup remover/make up mistake fixer. It is really easy to erase out any smudges, easy to reach tough corners and fix mistakes. Undoubtedly, these wipes also make excellent make up removers. There are much cheaper versions like Kara Wipes available in the market, but somehow they irritate my skin and leave a tacky grease film on it that I don’t like.
One tip for you ladies, once you have used the wipe as a makeup remover, squirt your face wash on the wipe and gently buff away any deeply ingrained oil. It works great as a soft face wash cloth too.
Pros of The Body Shop Vitamin E Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes:
• Very gentle.
• Wipes do not irritate the skin.
• Do not leave tacky, oily film.
• Double up as a face wash cloth.
• Enriched with Vitamin E.
