OK – I’ve made my feelings clear on cleansing wipes in the past. Strong feelings. However, if someone takes the initiative to take something and do it really well – I’ll always pay attention.
Beauty Works West is a gorgeous medispa in Notting Hill and where I happen to have popped for a pedicure this week (which was BLOODY AMAZING by the way). It’s the kind of place where as a therapist, it ticks every box – clean, crisp, comforting, luxurious and most importantly, great staff – from the receptionists to the therapists themselves. Anyway, I digress.
Paying at the till I saw these on the side and reading the pack out of the corner of my eye instinctively picked them up. Why? I confess to keeping wipes in my bag through the whole of the Summer – when you’ve got small children they are a must-have – and refusing to put synthetic, alcohol-laden crap all over my babies faces I have struggled to find some I was happy with.
So bearing that in mind – this is what I read at the till:
- Soil Association Emblem
- organic cotton
- organic aloe vera
- organic pomegranate
- colour and fragrance free
- paraben free
- not tested on animals
- no harsh or synthetic materials
- no synthetic laureth sulphate
- no formaldehyde
You can see why I picked them up. So my question is: If wipes can be done in this way – why isn’t everyone doing them? Beauty Works West – I salute you.
CLEANSE cleansing cloths are priced at £6.99 and are available here.
And wanting to share the love – Beauty Works West have offered 5 packets of CLEANSE to BM readers. See? Told you they were nice peeps. Especially after seeing what I have previously said about wipes on this blog! (That still stands by the way if you’re talking about something that costs a quid from a chemist)
