I’ve recently found myself in a bit of a “situation”. I ordered my favourite facial cleanser online and it just has not show up. Not happy, Jan. I won’t disclose the name of the company (yet! I’m assuming there will be a grovelling email from them in my inbox anytime now, to follow on from my lovely, polite and timely enquiry about WTF is going on).
So the moral of this story is that I’ve been forced to resort to whatever stash of facial cleansing products I had on hand. I scored a free pack of ModelCo Double Sided Face Wipes a few weeks ago. I usually only resort to wipes (which I consider the facial equivalent of a sponge bath) at times of great need, such as long haul flights, camping or pre-gym make up removal. However, desperate times call for desperate measures, so I’ve been using them for the past week. And I’ve been pleasantly surprised.
My skin has maintained its usual level of moderately good behaviour (it’s no saint but we get along ok) and I’ve been impressed by the little closure dooby-whappy that keeps the wipes from drying out. The wipes also do a decent job of make up removal (noting that my make up level is barely ‘fresh faced’ and nowhere near ‘drag queen’).
I’m still not sold on the ‘Double Sided’ feature – you can flip your cleansing wipe over and holy moley, it’s miraculously become an exfoliating wipe. To me, it just feels like wiping your face with a facewasher – which I could do with an actual facewasher… for free.
Overall, these do a decent job. If you’re anticipating a trip to the Sahara / music festival / glamping you can add these to your list.
