As I don’t spend loads of money on makeup, KIKO is a brand that is perfect for me. It’s inexpensive but good quality and I absolutely love their nail polish and eyeliners. Even though their shops are teeny tiny I’ve never looked at their skincare, I’m always drawn to their wall of nail colours and lipsticks for my mom who also now a huge KIKO fan.
I was talked into buying these wipes by the very attractive Italian male sales assistant at the Shepherds Bush Westfield Mall. He noticed I had been swatching eye and lip colours and instead of using the cotton balls and makeup remover they provide, he took my hand and led to me to the wipes. He gently removed the smudges of every green eyeliner they do and talked about the benefits of using the wipes. To be honest I was too enraptured by his accent and beautiful face to care what he said. After he presented my polished hand back to me I couldn’t say no to buying a pack.
These aren’t the usual daily wipes to remove makeup that are found in Boots – but twice a week treatment with Alpha Hydroxy Acids and Vitamin E contained within the wipes. The wipes themselves have a soft and a scrubby side which of course is part of the novelty. They are also pleasantly scented which makes them a pleasure to use. I’ll be honest and say that I’ve mostly used these to remove facial makeup with the soft side and then turned the wipe over to use it like a facial scrub.
I don’t know if I’ve seen any benefit from using them but it wouldn’t put me off buying them again because the packaging is good for travelling. If you used these as recommended this pack will last for a few months which is pretty good value for £5.90 per pack. I know a lot beauty bloggers don’t like facial wipes but I’m not opposed to using them for convenience. If I happen upon that beautiful Italian man from the KIKO store at Westfield again I’m sure he could convince me to buy them and anything else he might want to sell me!
