Yesterday, I excitedly wrote a post which had an intro of “Let’s get intimate today and talk about vaginas!” BUT it isn’t ready as I haven’t had an opportunity to take photos for it yet (boo!) so today, you’re going to get a review on Johnson’s Night Pampering Facial Cleansing Wipes*. Come on, I know you’re excited because the last time I wrote about their wipes here, I actually got comments!! Yes, comments – remember them?? It’s the love you give bloggers who deliver you free content to read when you’re sitting in the loo! *HINT HINT*
Anyway, onto the review of these “blissful bedtime pampering” wipes…
Let’s get straight to the point – if you like unscented wipes, then these are definitely NOT the wipes for you. End of story.
For everyone else, the Johnson’s Night Pampering Facial Cleansing Wipes are enriched in a Moonflower scent – no, I didn’t know what it was either! It is supposed to calm your senses and help you wind down before bedtime. For me, it’s not unpleasant and it is not overpowering. But it isn’t relaxing like lavender. It’s nice but not an OMG-I-MUST-BUY-THIS-BECAUSE-OF-THE-SCENT. Know what I mean?
Apart from the scent, the wipes deliver on all the other promises just like their original version. It removes all my makeup effectively but doesn’t leave my skin feeling harsh and doesn’t sting eyes when I use it to remove stubborn waterproof mascara.
I also noticed something about these wipes that I LOVE – it tells you the date it was produced and the date it expires. LOVE that because sometimes I see well known brand products in bargain bins and stock up…only to realise that the product isn’t at its prime and that’s why they were in the bargain bin! (BTW, this doesn’t mean that all bargain bin products are expired so don’t stop bargain hunting!)
They’re $6.99 for 25 wipes and available at Priceline. Less than 30 cents per wipe so pretty reasonable, but even better, when they’re on special offer – just don’t forget to check the expiry date 🙂
P.S. Regarding the vagina post I mentioned earlier, I hope to have it up next week so keep your eyes peeled…or unpeeled if you think it is TMI…but I wouldn’t miss it because it contains sound advice if I do say so myself.
*So, if you are wondering why I am writing about facial wipes, it’s because I was chosen to be a Beauty Directory Expert Panellist this year. What does it mean? Nothing much (apart from a fancy title and I did feel honoured). Basically, I am offered product(s) to review on a monthly basis with a set scheduled date with no monetary or any other form of compensation (products are NOT compensation! I cannot pay rent with half-opened facial wipes, can I? No, but seriously, can I??). If products aren’t my cup of tea or they clash with another product I am testing, I just turn down the campaign (I have turned down one already). Reviews are as always 100% honest – Derrrr, like you didn’t know that already with my ever-so-witty tongue-in-cheek humour 😛 Anyway, thanks for reading if you made it this far!
