From Nelsons’ website:
Heading out after work, packing for a weekend away or need a cleanser to pop into your gym bag? Helping you tackle the appearance of blemishes, Nelsons Pure & Clear® Purifying Facial Wipes are perfect for use on-the-go, quickly cleansing away impurities, calming the skin whilst also providing moisture.

What I liked:
– cleanses skin well, leaving it soft and refreshed
– doesn’t leave a greasy residue behind
– wipes are on the thicker side and are soft on the skin

What I didn’t like:
– if you have dry or sensitive skin, the wipes may dry it out with regular use
– the packaging needs to be closed properly or the wipes will dry out quickly

Although I’m not a big fan of cleansing facial wipes, I still think it is very handy to carry a packet around with you. After all, you never know when you may need them. At the moment, I’m keeping a packet of Nelsons Pure & Clear Purifying Daily Facial Wipes in my bag. They’re thicker than most facial wipes on the market, feel very soft on the skin and smell very strongly of Tea Tree Oil, which can put some people off.

These facial wipes, which are infused with Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and Avocado Oil, do a great job at removing all traces of impurities, dirt and makeup on my skin. In fact, one wipe is enough to take off a full face of makeup, including long-wearing foundation. After use, my skin feels clean and refreshed. No greasy residue is left on my face and so there is no need to rinse off.

However, while the oilier areas on my face (I have combination skin) were also left soft and smooth, I noticed that, with regular use, my cheeks, which are drier, felt quite thight and dry. Because of this, I stopped using them daily to cleanse my face and am instead carrying them around with me for emergencies. The packet is not too big, so it fits well in my bag, but needs to be closed carefully otherwise the wipes will dry out and become useless.

Aqua, glycerine (palm source), coconut oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, cetearyl wheat straw glycosides, cetearyl alcohol (palm source), phenoxyethoanol, tea tree oil, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate, citric acid, tocopherol (vitamin E source), witch hazel extract, alcohol, arnica montana extract, calendula extract, hypericum extract, benzoic acid, dehydroacetic acid, limonene (tea tree oil source), linalool (tea tree oil source).

Nelsons Pure & Clear Purifying Daily Facial Wipes quickly and effectively remove all traces of makeup, dirt and other impurities, leaving skin clean and refreshed. However, with regular use they can be quite drying if you have sensitive or dry skin. The strong tea tree oil scent can put some people off too.

    The cons outweigh the benefits here. I don’t use facial wipes very often. If I want to clean my face, I’ll wash it with my cleansers and if I want to refresh it, I have misters (haha I just realized how funny that is! I mean spray misty products). 😀
    I really like that you’re reviewing all the products (or at least a lot of them) from one line or brand. It helps me get an idea of their overall performance along with which products to pick up.

      Janessa, I think these wipes are nice to carry around with you and use on-the-go, but otherwise their face wash does a much better job at cleasning skin without drying it out.

      And lol at the misters! That really made me laugh! :)
