B. Quick 4-In-1 Cleansing Wipes (review)

B. Quick 4-In-1 Cleansing Wipes
B. can be found at Superdrug, with everything from face cleansers, moisturisers and a multitude of make-up products available. B. really do have all bases covered – there were 171 (!) products available on-line at the time of writing. So why might you choose something from this range over all the other products in-store?
  1. For a start they're aiming at the luxury-on-a-budget market. Many people like buying cosmetics that have a more premium feel about them, but can't (or won't) pay designer prices. On the outside this is where B. falls down, as the bland colours and nondescript branding are too unassuming. At least the wipes are packed in good quality plastic with a useful flip-top to keep them moist. And then there's the good news. The wipes themselves are very thick, a good size and soft to touch, but most importantly of all they're very moist making effective, deep cleansing far easier.
  2. These wipes are vegetarian and vegan friendly, and are certified cruelty-free (they feature the leaping bunny logo). Not only that but they're also made without any alcohol, parabens or propylene glycol. They are, however, made with real aloe vera and cucumber extracts, moisturising glycerin and nourishing vitamin e, so they're not drying or irritating, and I'd say they're perfectly suitable for sensitive skin types. In fact, I'd recommend them for all skin types, because even on my oily skin they cleansed effectively, although they did leave a very light film on my skin after use.
  3. At just £3.50 for twenty five wipes – excluding readily available offers in-store or on-line – they work out at 14 pence per cleanse, which is up there with the very best value facial wipes we've tested. Unlike some others which are cheap (and not very cheerful), these feel like they should be more expensive than they are, making them quite a bargain.
B. Quick Cleansing Wipes live up to their promises.  They are gentle, they do cleanse effectively and they will remove waterproof make-up without too much effort.  Being fragrance-free and manufactured without some suspicious ingredients that find their way into rival wipes is encouraging, I'm sure pretty much anyone could use them and be satisfied with their performance.

YES!
NO!
Good size, thick and soft – brilliant!
Perhaps a bit too moist for oily skin
Certified cruelty-free and vegan friendly
Not biodegradable & could be more natural
Definitely more luxurious than most

Very well priced
