This installment of Facial Wipe Wednesday spotlights Dickinson’s Refreshingly Clean Cleansing Cloths…
I have read that witch hazel is better for the skin than rubbing alcohol. I wouldn’t use straight rubbing alcohol on my skin, much less my face. Yet, witch hazel as a long history as being very good to the skin.
This is a list of what witch hazel can do for the skin, taken directly from the Dickinson’s website:
- Excellent for sensitive skin
- Removes excess oil and sebum
- Controls oil production
- Reduces skin blemishes
- Cleanses and conditions skin
- Tones and tightens pores
- Soothes redness
- Refreshes and cools skin
- Does not over dry
- Dermatologist tested
In an effort to expand the variety of wipes to review, I was very much looking forward to testing these wipes. Of course, to my chagrin, this package has 25 wipes rather than 30. But, after using these wipes, I can almost totally forgive that faux pas.
The packaging states that it can do quite a bit…
And, I found all of these to be true. Only mascara was a bit stubborn to remove. I did need to go over my lashes several times to get all the flakes off. The wipes were very moist and yes, it actually did feel refreshing to use. I can see how this product would be soothing to puffy skin, especially to the under eye area.
In the several years that I have been doing these wipe reviews, I think this is the shortest list of ingredients I have yet to see…
Two more pluses for Dickinson’s are that they are made in the US and, they do not test on animals. You’ll notice that this product still has alcohol in it. This is used to help the product dissolve the dirt and activate the witch hazel. I didn’t find that it dried my skin out but, I always follow up with a moisturizer regardless.
I was completely impressed with the size of the wipes…
I had to pull the wipe down to my wrist to show the complete, full size of it. This size was plenty to cleanse my entire face and eye area. And, right from the beginning, Dickinson’s Cleansing Cloths were very moist, just how I like it.
I liked that the wipe had a texture to it…
This is the first time I have ever used a witch hazel product. I was concerned it would be too drying for my skin. But, my concern was unfounded even with my slightly dry skin. These cleansing clothes sell for around $7 at Walgreen’s. I know I picked mine up on sale, however I don’t recall what I paid for them.
For those with sensitive skin, their website claims that these are good for even the most sensitive. I think that’s pretty bold yet, with the short list of ingredients, it would seem there is less of a chance for disrupting the skin.
If you happen to visit their website, you’ll find it full of information on witch hazel. If you are considering using these wipes, which I can easily recommend, you’ll discover quite a bit there.
Have you ever used witch hazel?
