From nowhere July has finally crept upon us, bringing forth holidays, festivals and time away from home. I love product that are simple and easy to use especially when it comes to going away. Things that make my life that little bit easier – who doesn’t? When I go on holiday I am forever packing too much, I then complain there is no room for other things. This means down sizing on thing that are important to me – skin care is a big one!
Recently I was sent some of the Dr. Organic Aloe Vera 2 in 1 Wipes to share my thoughts with you on. Being nice, small and in a nifty packet I thought these would be ideal for those people travelling. Here are my thoughts and what I found…
Firstly I’m a pretty big fan of Dr. Organic products, the brand is available in Holland and Barrett and not too pricey at all. So far I’ve tried several products in their range and all of them have been of a very high standard and I’ve loved them (Especially the Manuka Honey Skin Lotion!).
Here is a little information about the Aloe Vera Wipes by Dr. Organic…
Softening and refreshing natural wet wipes based on Aloe Vera, containing a unique gentle cleansing formula ideal for removing dirt and impurities from the skin. These wet wipes gently cleanse, soothe and refresh the skin at the same time as leaving it feeling smooth, replenished and luminous. Dr.Organic wet wipes are conveniently packed so you can take the wonderful benefits of Aloe Vera everywhere.
The packet is nice and small – only about 6 x 10cm in size so perfect for fitting into your handbag or suit case. Its quite a sturdy plastic, so unlikely to rip open. There’s a sticky label lid which I’m generally not a fan of, but so far this has remained closed thus keeping the moisture with the wipes and keeping them clean.
The wipes are about twice the size of the packet, so a good size for most jobs. They feel really soft, much like many wet wipes and not harsh on the skin at all. I found they were really good at removing makeup and making my skin feel clean and fresh after a long day.
The wipes are fragrance free, but have a natural fragrance to them due to the aloe vera and smell really lovely. My skin afterwards held this lovely scent and it made me feel quite awake and refreshed. Perfect for first thing in the morning when you’ve had a late night and need rejuvenating!
From a sensitive skin point of view, I didn’t have any reactions to these wipes. My eczema didn’t become inflamed on contact nor was it uncomfortable when using the wipes directly onto those areas. I can only put this down to the natural ingredients in this product.
The thing that surprised me most about the Aloe Vera Wipes from Dr. Organic was the price – £2.75 for 20 wipes from Holland and Barrett. I pay this for my Boots one I usually use and these were much better. The wipes are 100% natural, paraban free, SLS free and contain no artificial colours, fragrances or harsh preservatives.
At present Holland Barrett have an offer on these wipes (So, I’ll definitely be taking advantage!); Buy 1 get 1 half price – so it works out even cheaper.
Whether travelling away or just for taking your make up off and refreshing your face, these wipes are a must have.
Lots of Love,
