Face wipes drying out your skin!!

When you tell any beautician or any skincare specialists you use face wipes to cleanse or remove your make up they cringe just a little. Most face wipes although super handy can really dry out your skin. Most of them contain Alcohol.

I notice when I use them my skin feels tight and dry, I really do try not to use them but sometimes its either unavoidable or you are just too lazy to do anything else.  They are so handy for travel so I usually pack them and only use them if necessary. I will still pack my skincare products with the best intentions of using them.  I have tried many kinds and I find the Neutrogena alcohol free wipes the best. These feel soft and hydrating on the skin. These are found in boots for €6.99. 

Simple cleansing wipes are a very close second as they don't contain alcohol either. These just don't feel as hydrating as the neutrogena ones for me. These are cheaper at €4.49 also found in boots, pennys, local supermarkets and drugstores.

 Another great alternative is to purchase the Water wipes that are for babies. Water wipes are 99.9% water. These for me just don't cut it for removing eye make-up/mascara but they are gentle and better than most other brands. These are cheaper also at €2.99.

I tried the boots own brand for sensitive skin and these dry out in the pack way to quick, which is just a waste of money.
If you are using facial wipes all the time they will dry out the skin. Try and use a good cleanser and toner. Cleansing opens the pores and toning helps refine them again. I wish I had have known all this when I was younger and maybe I would have taken better care of my skin. Oh well as they say 'better late than never'.
