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)

The facial wipes, like the eye wipes, are very moist and do seem to efficiently remove medium cover make-up but I feel they would struggle with heavier coverage. Overall I would defiantly consider these as an option after a night or a holiday especially as they are more environmentally friendly and do leave my face feeling soft, but I personally prefer a cream remover with cotton wool for a more thorough removal of make-up.


The gem of the bunch in my opinion is the facial cloths; these versatile dry cloths can be used for anything you want really! They are so big that I have cut them in half so I can get twice the amount out of the box, alike the makeup wipes they have a tissue/wool type texture and unlike wool they don’t shed, I have found that using one of these damp with my usual cream cleanser makes my face feel really clean, the quilted texture really does seem to help take makeup off and as a result of the damp cloth I am using less of my cleanser so def a thumbs up for these!
