Nivea Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes for dry and sensitive skin

On my hen's day I was given a gorgeous basket filled with products that I'd either need on my wedding day or on the day after, which was a lovely idea (and one that I'm going to remember for the next time I need a hen's day present). One of the products that was in the basket was Nivea's Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes. 

These are really good wipes. They have the usual, pleasant Nivea scent, are very gentle and they easily cleanse my skin. I use them to remove all my make-up including eye make-up. They even managed to remove my waterproof eyeliner and mascara.

Nivea says: Cleanse, soothe and hydrate in one easy step. Removes make-up and waterproof mascara for a soft skin feeling. As dry and sensitive skin is prone to moisture loss, it needs intensive moisturisation. Even during cleansing its natural moisture balance should be respected to keep your skin soft all day long. Nivea Visage Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes have been especially developed by the Nivea laboratories to meet the specific cleansing needs of dry and sensitive skin. 

Would I buy these again? No. Whilst they are really good, I just can't go past my wotnot wipes, nothing compares to them. However if I needed something cheap to get me by, these would be my choice.

Ingredients: aqua, glycerin, dimethicone, isohexadecane, isopropyl palmitate, methylpropanediol, calendula officinalis, prunus dulcis, polyglyceryl-3 methylglucose distearate, sodium acrylates, glycine soja, 1,2-hexanediol, trisodium edta, phenoxyethanol, methylparaben, limonene, linalool, hydroxyisohexyl 3-cyclohexene carboxaldehyde, citronellol, alpha-isomethyl ionone, geraniol, butylphenyl methylpropional, benzyl salicylate, hexyl cinnamal, parfum.


  1. I switch between Nivea and Johnson & Johnson wipes as I find them equally as good.
    I tend to only use them in 'emergencies' though i.e. on holiday or if I am a little inebriated!
    Great review!

  2. Sounds like a great thing for next time I'm travelling.

    I haven't had much luck with cleansing wipes when it comes to eye makeup, perhaps I should give this one a go.

  3. Congratulation to your wedding and this is good for removing make up.
