Tesco Cucumber Facial Wipes

RRP: £1 for 25 wipes

--What does the promo say?--
"Tesco cleansing wipes facial have been enriched with soothing cucumber and aloe vera. They have been specially formulated to gently ease away make-up (including water-proof make-up), cleanse, tone and moisturise, without upsetting the skin’s delicate balance."

The white and green colour scheme is clean and unisex, with the circles evoking the cucumber inclusion perfectly.

Sweep over face to either remove makeup or freshen up on the go. Alternatively, they could replace your usual cleanser - particularly useful if travelling on hand baggage only this summer and not wanting to encumber your suitcase with liquids.

The wipes are white and leave no visible residue on the skin.

The cucumber aspect is definitely there without being overpowering.

--Texture and consistency--
The wipes are sufficiently abrasive to remove makeup or excess oil without being abrasive. Equally, they are soft without being ineffectual.

--Effects on the skin--
Seems to cleanse well, getting rid of dirt accumulated throughout the day. However, for makeup you might need 2 wipes depending on how thick your foundation is, if you use primers or not, and so on. For me, 1 wipe was not always enough.

--Value for money--
While not perfect, at £1 per pack these are excellent value, refresh the face, and are perfect for travel.
