Yes To Blueberries Age Refresh Cleansing Facial Wipes (review)

Yes To Blueberries Age Refresh Cleansing Facial Wipes
Yes To's Blueberries range is their go-to collection for anti-ageing. Comprising of wipes, an exfoliator, regular cleanser as well as eye cream, two day creams (with and without SPF) and a night treatment plus serums, treatments and much more. It's very comprehensive.

As usual I like to start with the basics before trying anything fancy and for that reason I've been working my way through these cleansing wipes. I have high hopes because I liked the cucumber and grapefruit alternatives a lot. I'm a massive Yes To fan!

The packaging looks great. The purple colour stands out on the shelves and suggests youthfulness and boldness. It comes with a plastic lid AND sticky label to keep the wipes moist, too; this is always preferable. While there are two languages on the pack (English and French) they're relatively clearly defined which is impressive bearing in mind the abundance of information included.

The fabric used is FSC certified and it's fully compostable. The cleansing lotion is 96% natural and is free from parabens, silicones, petrochemicals and SLS/SLES. Naturally there are no animal ingredients included (making them suitable for vegans) and there's no animal testing involved anywhere or at any time. There are many pure plant extracts included and many of these ingredients are certified organic! An excellent performance all round, then.

This collection contains ingredients designed to “improve skin firmness”, “protect skin”, “diminish fine lines and wrinkles” as well as “nourish age damaged skin”. They're designed to moisturise the skin as well as gently cleanse in one; big promises indeed.

The wipes are a good size and smell lovely. (There is unidentified 'parfum' included, but it's the last ingredient.) The cloth is soft and perfectly moist. You feel like you're getting a really good, deep cleanse with every swipe! My face looks and feels great after use; it's remained clear and feels smooth. I haven't noticed any change in fine lines but I never expected to; it's a face wipe not an intensive serum! My skin doesn't feel moisturised after use, but it's certainly not dry.

The best reviews should always be balanced; a good mixture of the good and bad points. But when a product like this comes along with no obvious down sides (even the price is good!) the only thing to say is this: Try Yes To Blueberries face wipes. You won't be disappointed.
