This months delve into my vault of posts brings to light the Neal’s Yard Remedies facial wipes *cue dramatic music*. Love them or loathe them facial wipes do have their uses and whilst personally I eschew wipes the majority of the time, I am an occasional but unashamed user. In my mind they do have their place – even if it is once a year in a slightly musty tent!
Neals Yard Remedies Organic Facial Wipes
I only road tested these reasonably recently (originally published April 2013) and instantly decided that my search for a better facial wipe was probably over. Simply put, I think these are by far and away the nicest facial wipes that I have used.
Made from 100% organic cotton, they are reasonably thick and feel luxurious on the face. The wipes remove make-up easily and leave the skin feeling moisturised. Many conventional wipes contain alcohol which can be drying on the skin but these eschew this often irritating ingredient in favour of white tea (an antioxidant), aloe Vera (know for its soothing properties) and lavender and chamomile essential oils.
The scent of calming chamomile is beautiful but fairly strong in the pack, however this doesn’t linger on the skin. The lack of synthetic fragrances means that the likelihood of irritation is slim, however those with more sensitive skins may be better to test the wipe before use. With this in mind it would be great if Neal’s Yard could produce a fragrance-free pack too.
Facial wipes are a must have in my pro kit; quick and convenient, I tend to find that they are particularly popular with the male artists and presenters I work with – well who wants to hang around after a long day on set!?
In the world of wipes these babies are pricey at £5.50 for a pack of 25 wipes. Not great for the bank balance, especially when you frequently get through a pack a weekend…

These are still by far and away the loveliest facial wipes I have ever used. I’m serious. The scent is delightful and the texture of the wipe decadent. I have been trying some (slightly cheaper) alternatives over the course of the past year however I do keep returning to these babies.
Short and sweet I know but I have absolutely nothing to add to my original post. Sorry :)
