The Yes To Detoxifying Charcoal Wipes shouldn’t be as weird as they are – as it turns out, changing the colour of a face wipe from white to black IS strange, but only because we’re so used to seeing them white. What does it matter what shade they are? I guess the reason they’re white in the first place is so that you can physically see all the grime and makeup coming away – 100% more satisfactory but it doesn’t affect the effectiveness at all. But its like the idea of black tissues or black cotton wool… just.. not what I’m used to!
Personally, I would be using these wipes not as cleansing wipes but as a finisher after cleansing. They contain charcoal and lycopene (they’re part of the Yes To Tomatoes range and tomatoes contain lycopene which is an antioxidant) plus salicylic acid. They’re far more suitable to oily or combination skins than dry but I like the idea that they just pick up any missed bits of makeup or debris at the same time as purfiying the skin. A ‘belt and braces’ kind of product.
The fabric is compostable, which I also like, although I find it hard to believe that the wipes are that dark with no dye involved – apparently, however, there is not. Yes To claims 95% or more natural and is cruelty free.
