nivea cleansing wipes

Ever since I started using a cleansing solution, I’ve stopped using wipes, however when I found myself in a sticky situation last week I decided to try these to remove my makeup as I had no alternative.

These wipes are for normal & combination skin, I believe they do ones for other skin types as well. They claim to cleanse, tone and hydrate, remove makeup and waterproof mascara and are suitable for sensitive eyes.

The wipes smell pleasant enough and they are quite moist, however they are absolutely terrible at removing makeup. I was wearing quite heavy makeup when I tried these and it took two wipes to attempt to remove it before I gave up, it wasn’t removing my eye makeup at all- which wasn’t waterproof- I have no idea how they would fair with waterproof mascara.
I also found them quite abrasive so when attempting to remove my makeup I was rubbing and pulling at my skin, especially my eye makeup, which was uncomfortable and made my skin sensitive.

Overall I wouldn’t recommend these at all, they aren’t moist enough in my opinion and too abrasive, which means they don’t remove makeup very well. I’ve tried better facial wipes, but in all honesty I would recommend a good cleansing solution.
