Amie New Bloom Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes (review)

Amie New Bloom Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes

Appearance
The sticky-label is sticky enough to stay stuck, so the wipes don't lose too much moisture. The packaging is easy to read with all the information you could possible want printed in a decent sized font. The wipes aren't bleached pure white but that's not a problem at all.

Usage
The wipes are quite small but still a usable size. Luckily they're quite thick and not slimy so you can get a good grip on them. They're not as moist as I'd like but are still effective. They freshened up face first thing in the morning and removed oil and night-time build-up without much fuss. My face didn't feel tight at all, but did look clean and ready for moisturiser.

Naturalness
There's nothing here that causes me any undue concern; they've been designed for even sensitive skin so you can be sure that they're gentler than many competitors. Day-to-day use confirms these are amongst the kindest facial wipes I've ever used. There are lots of natural plant extracts but no parabens or petrochemicals.

Eco-Conscious
Not a single animal-derived ingredient is included meaning they're suitable for vegans as well as vegetarians. On top of that – and disappointingly rare in this market – the fabric itself is certified biodegradable so you can compost them if you wish. The less waste that goes to landfill the better!

Summary
So not bad at all, and pleasingly natural and eco-friendly.  I would prefer them a bit moister, though, as the lotion each cloth is infused with is certainly effective.  Ultimately, though, other affordable, natural wipes cleanse even better so my money might go elsewhere.  Not a bad effort at all, though!

YES!
