Skin type: Oily and sensitive
Vega has recently launched four new refreshing wet wipes and now, I am going to review the variant ‘Lemon and Mint’. Let’s get into the review.
Price: Rs. 50 for 10 wipes
My Experience with Vega Wet Wipes Lemon and Mint:
Vega Lemon and Mint Wet Wipes come in a nice yellow colored plastic pouch with some nice print over it that indicates the variant. On the front, there is a usual plastic seal that can be opened and resealed safely. It’s easy to pull out the wipe. The seal sticks well and quite strong in nature, so it will stay for long. This is totally a travel-friendly packaging and one pack contains 10 wipes as well. But, these are yet not available in bigger size.
These wipes contain Lemon and Mint which are known as refreshing ingredients. Like that, it has a pleasant fresh smell of lemon with a hint of mint. This fragrance is a little different than our usual wipes and refreshing enough to uplift my mood as well. Such fragrance is good to all.
Wipes are made of viscose fiber material and feel quite soft and gentle on the skin. Size of the wipe is also quite good to cover my entire face in a single time but a little smaller than Kara wipes. This material is neither too thick nor too thin, so it feels good on the skin and doesn’t feel rough at all. These wipes are well saturated that never dry up quickly as well. So, I can take my time to clean my entire face.
Now, coming to its cleansing power, yes it works decently on this. It effectively removes dirt and impurities from the skin and provides great relief to it. It can take off the excess oil without making the skin dry. It provides a nice hydration to skin that makes it soft and smooth. It is good as a normal facial cleansing wipe and provides a good matte effect to the skin. It leaves a non-sticky smooth texture as well.
But, it is not super effective in removing makeup from the face. It works very slowly and takes time to clear it off. It can nicely wipe off my base makeup like foundation, blush or highlighter. It can clean powdery makeup like compact powder and eye shadows. It can clean glittery shadows as well. Even it is effective on normal creamy or matte lipsticks which are not waterproof but it takes time and effort for waterproof makeup. I mostly wear waterproof liner and kajal, so it is quite difficult to take them off only with this wipe. Even it takes time to clean water-resistant makeup. I need to rub multiple times to remove my waterproof makeup. For waterproof mascaras, it can’t take them off, but I don’t think any wipes can remove waterproof mascara. They always need an oil based remover, so I don’t mind it but I am not happy with its result for normal makeup like kajal and liner. It takes time for them too. It also can’t remove liquid matte lipsticks as they are waterproof too. So, for that makeup, I need to rub a lot but this wipe is not that super gentle. Excessive rubbing might make the skin red, so I always avoid that.
It is effective as a normal face cleansing wipe. After cleaning my face, it never makes the skin stretchy or dry. It provides a nice healthy refreshing touch to it. If you are traveling or need a wipe to clear sweat, then this is a good option to go with. These are good for all skin types. It suits my sensitive skin well and never broke me out.
Overall, these are available in four variants and except their smell, all work the same. So, you can pick according to your preference. I love this new fragrance of lemon and mint one and it is one of my favorite variants among the four. Otherwise, it is an average wipe that works on normal base makeup and slightly on non-waterproof eye makeup. But, it takes time for water-resistant makeup and can’t remove waterproof makeup. Yet, it is a pretty refreshing facial wipe that I love to use during a hot day and it instantly provides a great relief to my skin.

Will I Repurchase/Recommend Vega Wet Wipes Lemon and Mint?
If you want a normal facial cleansing wipe that provides good refreshment and matte finish, then it is good but if you want to clean makeup, then it is not so effective. I always prefer to use an oil based remover to clean my makeup and then wipe off that oil with a facial wipe. So, this is my technique to use a wipe. For that, it works nicely, so I can repurchase it but this wipe is not for makeup removal.
