Organic Surge – Kiss And Make-Up Cleansing Wipes

Before I go into detail about this product I want to first say that as a general rule I don’t like cleansing wipes. In my opinion they don’t cleanse the skin as well as a cleanser does, and they can sometimes just move the dirt/make-up around your face without actually removing it all properly. But they are a godsend if you’re feeling particularly tired at night as they’re quick and easy to use, and if you’re really lazy and sometimes forget to remove your make-up then it’s better to remove it with a cleansing wipe than not at all!
My first recommendation would be that if you do prefer to use cleansing wipes you use two – remove the bulk of the dirt and make-up with one, and then use another one to remove the last traces to ensure you don’t leave any residue on your face. Then rinse long and well with warm water to freshen the skin and remove any chemicals that the cleansing wipe has left behind.
If you’ve got a bit more time to remove your make-up at the end of the day you could try a Hot Cloth Cleanser, I review 5 of the best here.
So, now onto the product itself… I am a big fan of natural skincare and Organic Surge are a great example of a brand doing natural skincare really well. Organic Surge products contain no parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate, no artificial fragrances or colourants and no genetically modified ingredients, neither are they tested on animals.
I purchased these Kiss And Make-Up Cleansing Wipes a couple of months ago when they were on offer but have only recently got round to trying them out. The pack contains 25 biodegradable wipes, they have a gentle fresh fragrance and contain organic chamomile extract. I have been using the wipes in an evening before bed to cleanse my skin and have found that the wipes remove make-up and dirt well but I do need to rub around my eyes a little bit to remove stubborn mascara residue. After using the Organic Surge wipes my skin doesn’t feel sticky (a pet hate of mine after using some cleansing wipes) but I do still rinse and refresh my face with lots of warm water before using Organic Surge toner to remove any last traces of dirt.
As cleansing wipes go I am really impressed with these ones, and my recommendation would be… try to use a cleanser most nights… but if you’ve got home late feeling tired and it’s a toss up between going to bed with your make-up on or using a cleansing wipe then you could do a lot worse than try cleansing wipes, just try to make sure they contain natural ingredients so you know there will be no nasty chemicals left on your skin.
UPDATE 10th October 2017 – sadly Kiss and Make-Up Cleansing Wipes are no longer available from Organic Surge. If you’re looking for great natural cleansing wipes then I’d really recommend Yes To Blueberries Cleansing Facial Wipes, they’re cruelty free and contain no parabens or SLS. Yes To Blueberries Cleansing Facial Wipes are priced at £1.99 for a travel pack of 10, or £3.99 for a pack of 25.
