No babies in the house, ladies! We’re talkin’ bout our faces here. It’s high time we’ve had a decent, affordable fleet of facial wipes to turn to. To be honest, even before I received these packs of Nivea Daily Essentials facial wipes I was already using the Nivea baby wipes in my kit for quick, gentle cleanup moments. Nivea is a pharmacy skincare brand I’ve always trusted to be gentle on skin. They’ve given us 2 cleansing wipe variants for two skin types: gentle, alcohol-free wipes with Almond Oil for Dry/Sensitive skin, and textured wipes with Magnolia Extract for Oily skin and/or heavier makeup.
NIVEA GENTLE Cleansing Wipes (25 pcs. Alcohol-Free) w/ Natural Almond Oil & Hydra IQ Php140 “removes makeup and waterproof mascara”
These are the ones I personally tried, and it doesn’t sting my eyes when I’m removing eye makeup since it’s alcohol-free, it is mildly scented but pleasantly. It does remove waterproof eye makeup but not without a firm bit of effort on your part, with a little time put in it eventually gets the job done.
With any pack of wipes the liquid might tend to migrate to the bottom of the pack so I think it’s good to give the pack a quick, firm squeeze to juice up the wipes before opening it and pulling out your first few.
NIVEA EXFOLIATING Wipes (20pcs.) Php140 “soft side deeply cleanses and removes makeup, peeling side exfoliates skin.”
These ones I haven’t used yet to remove heavy makeup but in my opinion I’d rather do the opposite and use the textured side to help rub off the heavy makeup and use the soft side to attack the remainder. Keep cleansing with these wipes restricted to a safe area around the eyes since these aren’t alcohol-free.
The nice thing also about finally having a team of wipes specifically for the face is you no longer have to lug around that ginormous pack of baby wipes in your handbag, unless you really want or need to. These packs of wipes are in a more night-out friendly size than packs of baby wipes so you have more room to host the rest of your beauty bits in your handbag. Nivea Facial wipes are available at Watsons and leading grocery stores or department stores nationwide for Php140.00 a pack.
