Wet Ones - A Beauty Bloggers Must Have?

A little while ago I was sent a press release about Wet Ones we wipes, in the vague depths of my memory I remember specifically Wet Ones being specifically for little people. Yes they still make lines such as Wet Ones Little Bottoms RRP £1.99 and Wet Ones Sticky Fingers RRP £1.19 but more interestingly for me they have also moved into the Antibacterial market.

I was very kindly sent two packets of Wet Ones Antibacterial Wipes to try out. Wet Ones claim that these wipes kill 99.9% of all germ causing bacteria whilst at the same time keeping the hands and body moisturised. I have to say I am a bit of an obsessive with the anti bacterial hand gels, and sprays but more often then not they can leave your skin feeling quite dry, and even a bit irritated. I was keen to try out the wipes and see how they compared.

I was sent two variants of the wipes, first of all I was sent a pack of 12 Wet Ones Be Gentle Sensitive Antibacterial Wipes.

These are unsurprisingly the most gentle of the Wet Ones antibacterial wipes. Containing Vitamin E and Aloe Vera you can even use them on your face.

The pretty much look as you would expect them with a light woven texture

These wipes are unfragranced but there is a slight chemically smell there. I have to say I tried these wipes on both my hands and my face and there was absolutely no tightness or irritation on my skin, my skin was just left feeling clean and fresh

I was also sent a pack of 12 Wet Ones Be Cute Delicate Antibacterial Wipes

Although you can't use these ones on your face, they also claim to be for delicate skin. As you would expect these wipes are probably aimed towards the female market. As well as the pink packaging, they also have a delicate fruity / floral rose fragrance which I have to say I really liked. Again I noticed no dryness or irritation just clean skin :)

I have to say I think wipes are super useful, whilst I can't comment on the germ killing abilities they are great for keeping your hand fresh and clean, whether your travelling, just before eating, or just out and about - the 12 packs are great for your handbag and because they aren't a liquid they are safe to take on the plane - just make sure you close the packet properly to stop them drying out. I have to say though as well as all the more general uses as a beauty blogger these wipes have proved invaluable, not just for removing swatches from the backs of my hands but also for keeping my make up kit clean.

Come on admit you have a pot or tube somewhere in your collection that looks a bit like this. no matter how careful we are in our make up kits something always spills, or we end up with foundation covered finger prints all over out compacts. I have to say I do make a habit of giving my make up a wipe over every now and then, usually with a face wipe to keep it clean, but I decided to try the Wet Ones  because of th4e antibacterial properties and I was super happy with the results, one clean, sanitised foundation pot :)

All in all I can't think of anyone beauty blogger or mere mortal who wouldn't find a use for these wipes, I will definitely be picking up a packet every now and then for my handbag. Wet Ones travel packs of 12 antibacterial wipes are available in 4 variant, Be Zingy, Be Gentle, Be Cute and Be Fresh and retail at around £1.19. Be Fresh Wipes are also available in a 40 pack for around £2.29. For more information and stockists check out the Wet Ones website

  1. I've never seen the be cute ones before, I wonder how these would compare to superdrugs own brand? As much as I love hand gel these would be a less messy option, I think I might have to give them a try for when I go to wacken festival next month. Thank you for the great review!

  2. Love the blog, I've recently started my own :) Please check it out if you get a chance:
