Can wipes really clean skin?
It's extreme I know but I am officially in love with cleansing wipes.
They're incredibly convenient obviously but they are offer so much more than just ease.
Cleansing wipes smell delicious and fresh. They're soft and soothing on the skin and I love the way they feel in my hands too.
I love the ones with 'exfoliating' sides and those lavender-scented night-times ones. I'll tell you what I don't love quite so much - finding smears of foundation on my bed linen and pillow cases come morning.
And the reason I find those unattractive creamy blotches? Well, sadly it is this - wipes do not remove makeup fully.
I know, it breaks my heart too, but it's the truth I'm afraid. And I'm not the only one who thinks so.
Beauty expert Sali Hughs, author of Pretty Honest (Harper Collins) agrees.
"Removing makeup and dirt through proper cleansing is absolutely essential," says Sali. "And NOT with wipes," she adds.
Indeed, according to Sali, wipes are really only for those times when proper cleansing is tricky such as when at a festival, flying or, 'falling down drunk' and I tend to agree.
You see, if your face isn't super clean then you're sporting germs and other icky stuff and that can cause inflammation which can speed up the process of ageing. No thank you!
