    I've been using facial wipes for 2 weeks now, its easier than having to use a face wash and a towel, I've also noticed an improvement in my skin!
    BUT...
    they are £4 for 25 wipes, I use 2 a day, which means I would need 2 and 1/2 packs of wipes a month - £10 a month.
    Is it worth it? Should I go back to using a face wash instead?

    They're akshally really nice for blowing your nose into when you've got a raw nose from too much mukus. You could wipe your face with them an' then blow your nose?

    i use boots facial wipes, like 99p for a pack or something and theres always buy one get one free offers and stuff... no need to pay £4!! they are definitely worth it, i use cleanser and toner afterwards as well just to make sure it gets all my make up off...

    I use them all the time - in fact I only cleanse my face 'properly' when I feel like making an extra special effort. I'm so skanky!

    Seriously though, they've always seemed to have done the job. I do regularly promise myself that I'm going to start taking better care of my skin, but I think I never follow through on it because I haven't needed to. I am going through a slightly spotty phase at the moment, though.

    I actually find that wipes get rid of make-up better too, but yeah - they are expensive. Which ones do you use? I use the Simple ones and they're £3 - £4 depending on where you buy them, but they're often on BOGOF or two for a fiver in boots etc. You can sometimes pick them up in pound shops too if you're lucky, but I've never really been that bothered personally!

    I use Nivea Refreshing wipes, they're awesome. I used to cleanse my skin with a face wash, tone and moisturize, now I've swapped it for these wipes ONLY and they do all that in one. Or I use it as an excuse hehe I guess I'd still have to pay around £10 for a decent face wash so I'll just stick to the wipes
    Glad it's worked for you

    I use them daily for either cleansing or removing make-up, and pay something like 98p from Asda. You can get them for sensitive skin or all skin types.

    I've used pricey wipes before, and found that the Asda ones are just as good.

    Hope it helps!!!

    Baby wipes are cheaper and much better than spending loads of money on them. Also, they're made for baby's bums so they're nice and soft!

    I usually buy whatever wipes are on offer. I don't like paying more than £1ish for a pack of 25. Adsa's own do the job just as well as any other brand.

    If you cut them in half they last twice as long... You just need to use both sides of the wipe...

    Works for me anyways...

    I don't think so, but then they always irritated my skin. I'll stick to clinique mens range.

    Nivea are doing a multi-pack - 2 x 20 wipes for £2.50 in Bodycare.

    You will have to remove it properly and use make up remover wash if you don't want to use the wipes as an alternative.

    I usually wait 'till they're on offer (BOGOF, 2 for X amount ect.), which is quite a frequent thing. But my mum uses baby wipes, as they're nice/soft/kind to your skin and they're cheap!
