My Guilty Pleasure

Has anyone ever felt victimised by the face wipe haters?

*raises hand*

If your answer was yes then I'm here to tell you that you're not alone in your love of face wipes. We're told time and time again by beauty and skincare gurus that face wipes are bad, they're the root of all evil and you should only swipe your backside with them not allow them anywhere near your face. I'm here to tell you that if they work for you, stop feeling guilty about using them.

I struggle with my skin, I make no secret of that but I can have breakouts whether I've got the most stringent skincare routine with 4323 steps or I've just been wiping with a couple of face wipes. And although I can totally see why bloggers don't advocate the use of face wipes as part of a skincare routine, I honestly don't think they should be like a swear word in the community!

There are times in my life when I just do not have the patience for doing a full facial massage with a proper cleanser, I don't want to have to look around for a freshly washed face flannel and I sure as hell don't want to get into bed to discover that I've missed a bit of oily cleanser which is still under my jaw. And you know what, I don't want to have to feel guilty about it.

My favourite wipes have to be Witch ones, I have a bit of a routine now where if I'm doing my proper cleansing routine with oil cleanser I will wipe a couple of Witch Hazel soaked cotton pads as it's actually a natural astringent which can help with acne so it makes sense to me to use Witch Hazel based wipes. Witch wipes are moist (yep I said possibly one of the most disgusting words in the English dictionary) and they do take make up off so they tick the boxes for me; don't get me wrong they struggle with taking heavy eye makeup off but which wipes don't struggle with that, I will admit that only a proper cleanser will deal with that.

Are you too scared to admit you use face wipes?!
