A few weeks back I talked about some new additions to the Ole Henriksen Cleansing Clothes line. I loved the Grease Relief ones so much I decided to order the Ole Henriksen Nurture Me Cleansing Cloths as well. Although all three cloths in in the line are designed for all skin types, each is also geared toward a particular skin concern: the original (the Clean Truth) for anti-aging, Grease Relief for blemish prone skin and Nurture Me for sensitive skin types.
These clothes claim to remove all traces of makeup including waterproof mascara. The Nurture Me Cloths are infused with Moringa Seed Oil, Borage Seed Oil and essential fatty acids “to nourish and unveil glowing, bare skin”.
According to the Ole Henriksen website the ingredient benefits details include:
Borage Seed Oil: A rich source omega-6 fatty acid to regenerate, firm, reduce inflammation, moisturize, soothe and tone.
Moringa Seed Oil: Contains antioxidants, nutrients, amino acids, and omega-3 fatty acids.
African Red Tea: An antioxidant-rich botanical that strengthens skin’s outer barrier and slows the aging process.
Pineapple & Papaya Fruit Extract: Provides advanced exfoliation and powerful enzymes to break down excess keratin to reveal softer, brighter skin.
Here’s my take. In terms of moisture levels, on a scale from 1 – 10, I would say this is about a 6 or 7 (similar to the Yes To wipes and Neutrogena Wipes, both of which I like). The cloths themselves are average in size (again, about the size of the Neutrogena wipes). Unlike the Grease Relief cloths which are textured, the Nurture Me cloths are smooth like traditional wipes. Very much like its counter parts, however, the cloths smell absolutely delicious. Like fruity goodness but not in an artificial way, with a hint of the fresh, floral wonderfulness that is Moringa.
I should reiterate that I use cleansing cloths/makeup remover wipes for two reasons: to remove makeup as the first step in the cleansing process of my skincare routine or to “freshen” my face in situations where I am not wearing makeup (after a workout if I cannot wash right away/on an airplane). I do not use any type of wipe/cloth as my sole method of cleansing.
Of the three offerings from Ole Henriksen, I would have to say that Grease Relief is my favorite, followed closely by Clean Truth and Nurture Me. But I love them all and don’t mind the little splurge. Anyway for me, where I live, the Neutrogena and Olay wipes/cloths cost about $13.00 USD, so it’s almost the same thing.
The full size (30 cloths) retails for $15.00 USD, while the travel size (10 cloths) retails for $8.00 USD. They can be found at Sephora or on Ole Henriksen’s website.
Have you guys tried these cleansing cloths? Do you use makeup wipes or cleansing cloths in general?
