Tuesday Tip :: Facial Wipes

Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Last week, I wrote a Tuesday Tip blog post on blue lipgloss and since you all gave such positive feedback, I have decided to carry this feature on for the month of March. Woop woop!

This weeks tip is actually something I learnt from a Sprinklerino, and thought it was superduper so will be sharing it with you. I do love our glittery community y'anno.



On to the tip.

Do you use face wipes for makeup removal? I do. There are some nights when I just don't have the oomph to do an entire cleanse, tone, moisturise routine. So a quick wipe swipe and my head is on the pillow.

To keep your wipe moist and prevent the top ones from going dry and not working as efficiently as they could, store the packet upside down. This way, all the 'wetness' and cleansing properties sink to the bottom due to good old gravity, and each wipe you take, will always be lovely and wipey. No more dragging a dry square of disposable fabric across your face for you! Yippee!

So there you have it, this week's tip. Was it useful to you or was that one you already knew of?

Toodlepip!

  4. great tip, i never considered that! i also snip wipes in half to make them last longer on the days when my make up is minimal as it seems a bit of a waste to use a full wipe when i've only got bb cream and mascara on, for example.

  7. YES! These save me on nights when I am too tired to do a proper cleanse. I also keep them in my gym bag. I hate working out with makeup on, especially yoga. I haven't tried these. Right now, I am using the Burts Bees.

  8. That is so smart! Facial cleansing wipes save my life. I try not to get too dependent on them, but I am often lazy near finals week and they are far too convenient. I know that my skin would be better if I forced myself to do my full cleansing regime more often.

  18. I've been using the no7 facewipes since i was like, 15!? I wasn't sure if they'd changed the packaging when i bought the white ones recently. these are so much softer than the ones they sold in the bright blue packaging.
    great tip, thank you lovely! xo

  22. This was such good timing! I was literally about to throw my packet of wipes in the bin because they're so dry. I'll leave them upside down and see if they are rescued by tomorrow :D

  30. Great tip, super easy but something you don't always think for yourself. Also, do you think you could possibly start doing some "household tips". Some of us are starting our "grown up" lives and would love to hear your advice on how to keep a happy home.
    Thanks, lovely!

  34. I think even those who whinge about face-wipes use them occasionally, how did we ever manage before? I too flip the pack over, works a treat esp on the cheapy ones I have to resort to buying occasionally :-/

    Love Tuesday tips!!

  42. This is definitely a must-do kinda tip for the No.7 wipes!! Even when I open a brand new pack I always find that the first quarter/third of the packet has pretty much completely dried out! This is a feature that I only attribute to this brand, although my latest packet somehow got stored the right way up (pesky Mr trying to tidy) and the top wipe wasn't dry at all! Perhaps they've changed formula? x

    ReplyDelete
  43. never again will i have to use 2 face wipes because the top one is too dry! great tip! xx

    ReplyDelete
  44. Does this not make the bottom ones dry ???
