Get Or Forget : Dove Beauty Cleansing Wipes

No offence** but, seriously :-

a) Who writes reviews on cleansing wipes?
b) Who really wants to read a review on cleansing wipes?

These are the thoughts running through my mind as I write this review on Dove Beauty Cleansing Wipes.  How ironic!  But the reason why I am writing this review is to test out a new review format : Get Or Forget…  Let me know if you Get this format or should I Forget it.  (*chuckles at my own very un-funny puns*)



Dove, facial cloth, wipes, cleansing



I found these Dove Beauty Cleansing Wipes inside my goodie bag when I attended the Australian Open.  I used to be a wipes-kinda-gal and would use all different varieties including baby wipes to wipe my make-up off or to cleanse my face.  It was so quick and easy for a lazy gal like me.  But now that I am older and wiser, I don’t use wipes for these purposes at all because they don’t perform as well as the individual products they are supposed to replace, i.e. make-up remover, cleanser, toner and moisturiser.

Get Dove Beauty Cleansing Wipes if :-

  • You have a tendency to sweat and smell; but can’t get access to a shower
  • You are going through a deodorant-free phase to…you know…air your pits and you’re looking for a scented substitute
  • You don’t wear slippers around the house and you can’t be bothered to wash your feet before you jump into bed
  • You’re looking for an alcohol-free wipe to spot clean make-up brushes
  • You’re going camping or travelling and need to travel light
  • It’s on a special deal at your local pharmacist

Forget Dove Beauty Cleansing Wipes if :-

  • You are looking for a non-scented wipe
  • You’re happy with the baby wipes you use which work out to be much cheaper per wipe

** I dislike it when people who say “No offence, but…” because it’s as if it gives them a valid excuse to say offensive things!  And all I wanna say is, “No offence, but STFU!”  Yes, I am well aware that I have used the exact same phrase to introduce  this post.  The theme of the day is ‘irony’!!!**

What are your thoughts on cleansing wipes?  And is the review format Get Or Forget a keeper?  And what do you think about people who say “No offence, but…” sentences?

    Depending on the statement, no offense is really ineffective. “No offense but…I just ran over your baby.” for one…

    @Eden-Avalon, “Normally I’d be upset you’d ran over my baby, but since there’s no offence intended, it’s all cool. Wanna go get ice-cream?”

    I like to have cleansing wipes on hand, I’m too lazy to remove makeup any other way sometimes and they’re great for if you’re running late.

    @Jasmine1485, They’re so handy and disposable :)

    LMAO, I had pretty similar sentiments on my blog about make up wipes too! Great minds think alike. ;) I’m a make-up wipe girl… It’s so easy and convenient. But it doesn’t replace cleansing, toning and moisturising etc. I do like this get or forget format :)

    @Michelle, Yay!! Thanks Michelle :)

    Hmmm, firstly, i use wipes to get off my make up when im lazy (which is pretty much all the time but at most twice a week – since im more of an all naturale kinda girl) & go over everything with make up remover for specific make up aka waterproof mascara.

    Secondly. I like the idea of the get or forget, helps me make decisions if im deciding on a product & e pven though we have different skin types & different reactions etc, this will help me & my wallet in the long run ^^

    Lastly, i expect something offensive to be said when that phrase is used. I dint really mind, coz i do use it sometimes (makes me feel less rude & crude when i say.. Politically incorrect things).

    @Jennifer huang, No offence, but I’m lazy too :)))))

    I’ve done a couple of posts on cleansing wipes, I think they’re really handy and they’re much better than going to bed with a face full of makeup..

    “No offence, but..” is right up there with “I’m not racist, but…” in my opinion.. nothing good ever comes after those opening phrases.. :)

    @Omega, Oh yeah! One of my friend’s is Sri Lankan and he was dating this Chinese girl. This girl’s Mum said to him, “No offence, I’m not racist but I don’t like you!” – WTF??!!!!

    Hahah funny! I actually love Dove products. They smell so good and are so soft on your skin. The wipes I like :)

    Ling Reply:

    @Tamyr, Ahhh, Dove…my hair smells of Dove shampoo right now…plus my armpits smell of their deodorant… Sorry, that’s TMI!!!

    I love the Dove beauty cleansing wipes when I’m travelling. I always find that my skin feels different when I’m in different cities/countries, so using my regular cleansers don’t seem thorough enough.

    With regards to the “no offence” sentences – it’s just as bad written as it is when it’s said in conversation.

    I love your blog by the way! I recently discovered it and now I’m hooked :)

    @Agnes,
    Wipes are so convenient :)

    Ahhh, thanks Agnes!! I am on the lookout for new blogs to read so I’ll come and check yours out soon :)

    I go back & forth on makeup wipes. I am currently using them to remove my makeup, then I clean my face, etc. I love the smell of Dove products and may have to try these.

    Ling Reply:

    @TracyD, Dove is amazing! I’m currently lying in bed with Dove-washed hair and Dove-washed body. Just in case you really wanted to know that LOL

    You always make me giggle, thanks.

    I like to keep wipes in the car, for those days you just have to get the makeup off. I’ll usually pick up some in Coles that are reduced to $2. Great for emergencies but not for everyday.
