A face wipe will only remove the makeup and dirt that is visible on the surface; it will not remove the dirt and makeup that's sitting within the upper layers of skin, causing spots, irritation and blocked pores. The perfect experiment to illustrate how utterly useless face wipes are is to wipe your face as you would normally, then taking a cleanser and toner to skin to really remove the nastiness - the horrific amount of dirt, grime, makeup and grease that comes away from your skin will have you dumping the face wipes for good.
Don't get me wrong, face wipes have their function in life (I'm talking 3am after the pub and festivals when you're living out of a tent,) but on the whole they should be kept as a last resort rather than the crutch we lean on daily. Start a new month with a new routine, and make that routine based on cleansing, toning, exfoliating and moisturising your skin... Your face will thank you for it.
