While I believe that facial wipes should not be used as a primary source of facial cleansing, I also think that there is still a place for them.
They’re great for getting make up off quickly, as the first step in your skincare regime perhaps and I use them all time for removing stubborn mascara and eye make up.
Now traditionally facial wipes are white in colour, not so are the Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Wipes.
These wipes are completely black.
Formulated with charcoal to help remove dirt and impurities whilst you cleanse these wipes are 95% natural and formulated without parabens, SLS and silicones.
Forgetting for a moment the fact that these are an unusual colour, the wipes themselves are pretty good.
They are lovely and moist, the wipe itself is thick and robust and my skin feels refreshed and clean rather than tight and dry after using them.
I’m not sure exactly what the purpose of them being black is though, other than to stand out.
I get that the colour reflects the fact that they are formulated with charcoal, but I find it a little disconcerting!
One of the things I like about traditional wipes is the satisfaction you get when you’ve wiped your face and can see the make up residue on it, meaning it is no longer on your face.
When using these wipes I found it really weird that I couldn’t see my make up on them. That said this could be a plus point for some people!
As wipes go they’re pretty good and you’ll either love or hate their colour!
