[unpaid/purchased] We were talking, in a previous post, about treats to pick up in the supermarket on the weekly shop. I was honestly so pleased to find these Nivea wipes in my local Tesco at the weekend because I don’t want to give up wipes completely but they don’t square at all with being mindful about waste and waste disposal. I ordered re-usable cotton pads ages ago and have mainly used those, but I miss my wipes mostly for tidying up swatches and cleaning my arm of lipstick stripes.

Nivea Biodegradable Refreshing Cleansing Wipes

These are gentle enough to take off lipstick time and time again when I’m trying out colours without leaving my lips looking like a prune so I’m very grateful to have found them. I didn’t take any notice at the time but they’re called ‘refreshing’ for a reason – I find them quite cooling quite nice, I think, for a refresh on a hot, sweaty face.

Next time I go food shopping, I’ll pick up a pack to keep in the bag I take when I go for a walk. They’re actually made from renewable and fully biodegradable plant fibres and I think they were about £3. When it comes to make-up removal, I’m not quite as hard-core as some about wipes – occasional make-up removal with a wipe won’t do you any harm. It won’t remove your make-up as well as a full-on cleanse but sometimes, when you just can’t be bothered to crack open the balm, they’ll do.
