(Probably) the most expensive face wipes in the world…

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 23 - 2013

In these times of austerity, does anything seem more wasteful than spending ££££ on disposable face wipes?  But for every face-wipe detractor out there, you’ll find someone who wouldn’t be without the convenience of their skincare-enriched, disposable towels.

As someone who tries to avoid too much water when cleansing, I’ve been known to use face wipes as part of my cleansing routine.  Not to remove a full face of makeup, but to freshen my face in the mornings…  I have to admit, however, that I’ve never paid more than around £6 for a pack.  I’m not sure I could bring myself to pay any more than this… but would you part with the cash for any of these?

face-wipes

01: Murad Clarifying Wipes for Blemish-Prone Skin (£18.00, lookfantastic.com) – 30 wipes per pack / 60p per wipe

These wipes from Doctor-led brand Murad have been enriched with witch hazel, algae extract, grape seed extract and vitamin E.  Designed specifically for blemish-prone skintypes, the wipes promise to tighten your pores, regulate sebum and oil production and protect your skin from free radical damage.

02: Dermalogica Skin Purifying Wipes (£14.40, jerseybeautycompany.co.uk) – 20 wipes per pack / 72p per wipe

The Dermalogica Skin Purifying Wipes contain Antibacterial Triclosan, extracts of Balm Mint, Coneflower and Camphor, Salicylic Acid, and witch-hazel to cleanse, remove excess surface oil, and purify the skin.  These are particularly recommended for popping in your gym bag as a post-workout freshen-up.

03: Ole Henriksen Truth To Go Wipes (£15.00, hqhair.com) – 30 wipes per pack / 50p per wipe

For a less astringent cleanse, the Ole Henriksen Truth To Go wipes offer naturally based mild surfactants to gently lift away dirt and impurities while essential fatty acids nourish the skin.  These orange-scented wipes also include Vitamin C and Micro Algae stimulates Collagen production to lighten, brighten and tighten the skin.

04: Stila Ready for Take Off Moisturizing Cleansing Cloths (£12.50, fenwick.co.uk) 30 wipes per pack / 42p per wipe

The clue is in the name.  These wipes from Stila promise to deliver a more moisturising cleanse, perfect for the upcoming colder months.  Containing extracts of  lavender, chamomile, and aloe vera these wipes are made without synthetic fragrance, mineral oil, sulfates, parabens or phthalates, making them a great choice for more sensitive skins.

05: MAC Cosmetics Wipes (£15.00, debenhams.com) 45 wipes per pack / 33p per wipe

These oversized wipes from staple cosmetic brand MAC promise to make quick work of makeup-removal.  Saturated with M·A·C cleanser and infused with vitamin E, they offer a convenient cleanse.  Less of a skin treatment wipe, more of a fuss-free cleanse and go.

Would pay over £10 for a pack of face-wipes?  Are you a fan of any that I’ve mentioned?

    I would not except maybe for a holiday to avoid brigning a bottle of micellar water. I use them either on nights when I’m super tired or lazy and sometimes in the morning, like you to freshen up.

  2. Charlie says:

    I’m using the Murad ones now and they are amazing! I have to be honest and say no I wouldn’t pay £18 for them normally but would definitely for holidays/weekends away and that kind of thing.

  3. Wordbird says:

    No way, José! I keep a little travel-sized bottle from a GWP that I refill with micellar and I use that if I’m travelling, (along with a diddy bottle of Philosophy Purity to get off the sunscreen etc, or I become the zitmeister). I have got some L’Oreal wipes because they were on a special offer. (Not sure actually.) But I just couldn’t bring myself to spend that much on face wipes. That’s a MEAL. (And yes, that means I’m low-rent, though I prefer to call it ‘more attainable’.)

  4. Boots 3 for 2 Cucumber wipes are all that we get in this house! If I’m going to spend £18 it’s going to be a on scrub xoxo

  5. Robyn says:

    The MAC ones are actually good, but I know that from using them instore, and I still probably wouldn’t fork out for them. I know what you mean though – crap wipes *are* crap but I try to avoid using too much water on my face as well and a lot of people don’t get that hot water dries my face out!
