Kleenex Wipes Review

So as mentioned earlier in the week I have been trying out the new cleansing range from Kleenex, I picked 3 products from the range; Facial cleansing wipes, eye makeup removal wipes and facial clothes. All three products are currently at a reduced introductioary price at Tesco;

I have to begin by saying I’m not usually a fan of ‘wet wipe’ type makeup removal, I tend to prefer a makeup removal cream applied with cotton wool and then a facial wash (I am a bit obsessive about making sure there isn’t a patch of makeup left on my face!) but this is not say I wouldn’t use them as a quick option on a night out or whilst on holiday.

So the facial cleansing wipes and the eye make-up wipes both seem to contain pretty much the same product, the main difference being that the eye wipes are a slimmer wipe than the face. The wipes have a texture that is somewhere between cotton wool and tissue, they are quite quilted which feel nice when removing make-up. So how did they perform? Well I would say these are as good if not slightly better than other wipes I have used, the only thing that has defeated the eye make-up wipes is my Estee Lauder Doublewear eyeliner, but I do have to scrub to get this off so I wouldn’t let this put me off.


Facial cleansing wipes; £1.49 (r.r.p £2.99 for 24 wipes)
Eye makeup removal wipes £1.49 (r.r.p £2.99 for 24 wipes)
Facial cloths 99p (r.r.p £1.99 for 30 clothes)

A little find during my weekly food shop – Welcome to the beauty world Kleenex!

I am not a fan of the weekly food shop so as an incentive to get myself up and going to the supermarket I allow myself one cosmetic item every time I do a food shop, so I was really pleased to come across the new Kleenex facial cleansing range.

So, a brand that I usually associate with my winter sniffles has now ventured into cosmetics and although I usually only treat myself to one item I may have got carried away by the introductory prices on offers and gone for three products from the range! I hope to use these over the next few days and blog all about them in my tools section!

1960′s Inspired Beehive Hair – Using Spornette ‘Little Wonder Teasing Brush’

So I have been feeling a little nostalgic of late and have been watching back to back episodes of an old ITV favourite of mine ‘Heartbeat’ it takes me back to Sunday nights when I lived in Yorkshire but what I love about it most is the 1960′s hair and makeup, which helped inspire the following look, it also gives me an opportunity to rant and rave about one of my favourite hair tools of the minute!

Time for a clean-up!

So this week has been about cleaning my favourite makeup tools and whilst I was at it I decided that what better to blog about than the tools I use everyday to create different looks! So I’ve invested in a good brush cleanser and got them all looking great and hope to get blogging about them in my new ‘Tools’ section very soon…

I used Estee Lauders’ ‘makeup brush cleaner’ to get my brushes sparkling and new.
