Facial Wipe Wednesday: Ole Henriksen The Clean Truth Brightening Cloths

Ole Henriksen facial wipes have been recommended to me several times. After using ‘The Clean Truth’ Cleansing Cloths for Brightening, I see why!…



I chose the Brightening because it lists CoQ10 as one of the ingredients and, I know it is a very powerful anti-aging enzyme. It was also nice to see a total count of 30 in the packaging too…


I have mentioned in other Facial Wipe Wednesday posts that many companies (and not just with facial wipes) have cut back on 30 counts. Ole Henriksen is a higher-end skin care company so I’m pleased to see that they haven’t skipped. Also, I like the opening of their package. A plastic snap top keeps the cloths from drying out, in my opinion. I found these wipes to have just the right amount of moisture in them to get the job done and that is, a clean face with all my makeup removed.

The Clean Truth wipes contain black currant oil which is meant to help moisturize the skin. I noticed this the second night I used these cloths. My skin didn’t feel like I needed to hurry to put my nighttime moisturizer on. Absent was that tight feeling I get after washing my face. Next, and the most remarkable thing about the wipes is the Vitamin C…



You know what orange zest smells like, right? That citrus fragrance that is unmistakably ORANGE….that is what these facial cloths smell like…10 fold. Now, I LOVE the smell of oranges so, if you don’t, you might want to pick one of Ole Henriksen’s other facial wipes. If you need to wake up or feel instantly refreshed, I completely recommend using these. I think I’ll tuck a pack of these in my workout bag because these would be ideal to use right after a hard workout. In all seriousness, I looked forward to using these just for the aromatic fragrance alone. That they do a grand job at removing my makeup was a distant second!

And, as you can see, there are lots of other healthy ingredients listed…


The Clean Truth wipes are a standard size…


And, the cloth is textured, which I feel helps hold onto the dirt and makeup so it doesn’t end up smeared all over my face…


I purchased my Ole Henriksen The Clean Truth Brightening wipes at Sephora. There is a complete line of The Clean Truth and I am now looking forward to trying some of them to see if they have the same intensely awesome orange fragrance. The 30 count wipes I purchased cost $15.

If you have tried any of the other products from The Clean Truth line, which do you recommend I try next?

      I truly was blown away.

  • cindyprimebeauty

    I tried these a long time ago, need to re-visit them.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Ahhh, I bet you do!

  • Anastasia

    Those seriously sound amazing. I was avoiding them because I thought they’d make my skin sting, but you just sold me on those.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I don’t have sensitive skin so they didn’t sting for me. In fact, I found them soothing.

  • This sounds really nice. I’m very particular with my cleansing wipes because many burn my skin but these sound like they would work for me.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Since I don’t have sensitive skin, I can’t say whether they’d sting for you. Maybe the store would let you try one?

  • FabZilla_Kath

    I will pick this up when I go to Sephora next wknd!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I hope you review them and share your experience.

  • These sound amazing. I love orange-scented skincare and cleansers.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I have a feeling you’ll love these.
