I had ran out of the last facial wipes I bought on a buy one get one free offer, so I looked today to see what bargains there was to be had. I came up with these T-Zone shine control cleansing facial wipes. I shall be honest and say that of was because of the price and the fact that they contain t-tree oil. £2.48 I couldn't complain.
I have had an under the skin spotty rash down the side of my face for a while and cant get shot of it, mainly because I work in a kitchen and get hot and sweaty, so I am taking these wipes to work with me and using them when I have finished to get rid of the excess grease and grime straight away.
These wipes come in a handy little packet with a resalable lid. If that's what you want to call it, I'm not quite sure how to put it, peel back resalable sticker sounds a better description. The packet is a light mint green colour with white patchy spirals all over it, T-Zone is written in white with a blue rectangle around it and then another rectangle of red standing on end with the same spiral, which I'm guessing at the moment to be the t-zone logo. I have just had a look at the other products and they have the same logo on. It also states on the front that
it contains organic tea tree soy and ginger, in bigger blue writing is says shine control cleaning wipes and just under the logo in smaller writing, cleanses and tones, removes excess oil and helps prevents break outs. It also tells you on the back that it contains 25 wipes.
As I open the packet I cant smell much, but as I bring it nearer to my nose the strong smell of t-tree hits me, I love this smell as long as it is not pure t-tree as that is too strong, I personally cant smell ginger yet, as I take one out of its packaging I still can only smell t-tree.
The wipe itself__
As I pulled it out like a tissue from its box I notice a squelch sound and a few bubbles, only very tiny ones. The wipe is very moist and as I pull it apart, because it was folded up I hear more bubbles popping and the smell of t-tree is quite strong and refreshing. This wipe is quite thick and soft, no patterns on this one just plain and white and 7 inches by 8 inches. It is quite tough but does rip if you try to pull it apart, but I'm only using it to wipe my face and maybe take makeup off, nothing too heavy.
What does it feel like on my face__
It feels cool and refreshing, as I wipe all over my face I feel a slight tingling that doesn't last for long, this feeling to me means it is doing its job, if I am rite or not remains to be proven. There is no stinging or anything on my face and I feel very clean afterwards. My face was left feeling quite smooth.
Does it work__
It defiantly does its job, they remove the excess oil and dirt, after I had wiped my face there was a small amount of dirt left on the wipe but nothing to shout about, the average amount you would expect with no makeup on. My face is not shiny anymore. As for preventing breakouts I will have to let you no if I have any problems but none so far. The makeup came off but a little bit of a problem when I came to my eyes, not wanting to get too close and get the stuff in my eye.
T-Zone active ingredients__
Organic T-Tree; A natural antiseptic which actively kills bacteria. Sourced from a native Australian plant and from renewable plantation only.
Organic soy: Rich sources of protein which nourishes and helps maintain healthy skin.
Organic Ginger: Stimulates the blood flow to the skins surface, eliminates toxins and purifies the skin.
Remove a single cleansing wipe from the pack and gently wipe over your face and neck. Repeat until all traces of makeup and dirt have been removed. No need to rinse. Take care to reseal the pack to prevent the wipes from drying out.
Avoid the delicate eye area. If irritation occurs, discontinue use.
Against animal testing.
So far so good I like the smell, some may think it is too overpowering. They make my face feel clean and refreshed, I haven't had any irritations or bad reactions to them, and my face no longer gleams with grease!! As for the removal of make up it came off easily except my eye liner which I found hard as they said on the packet to avoid the delicate eye area. Well to remove all of your makeup you need to go over your eyes. I don't wear mascara so I don't need to worry about that. I will update and let you no if it gets rid of my little spotty rash I have. I just hope the resalable sticker stays sticky because usually these things have a habit of curling up and loosing their stickiness, leaving the wipes to dry out slowly, not good. I would recommend these wipes for a cleanser and toner in one and for the prevention of brake outs, but not for the removal of make up, lets face it you don't want something that might irritate if you get it in your eye to remove the makeup that you have put on.
