Another Winner: Ole Henriksen Nurture Me Cleansing Cloths

 

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.

 

Ole Henriksen Nurture Me Cleansing Cloths Review

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.

 

Ole Henriksen Nurture Me Cleansing Cloths Review

 

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?

  1. I think I’ve used a sigle pack of makeup wipes in my life… I just don’t seem to agree with them! Even the Yes to (cucumber?) ones that I’ve seen mentioned a lot irritated my skin that is almost never sensitive to anything. And the MAC ones? A disaster! When I go to their lessons I always ask for something else to remove my makeup to avoid having to pile on the foundation to cover bright red skin. I stick to my micellar water as my first cleanse and I try to carry a mini one with me with the last cotton rounds in the pack for an emergency cleanse if I know it may be needed! You’re making me so curious about this brand though… And they seem to smell really lovely too! 😉 xx

      That sounds horrible! 🙁 I don’t like the Yes to Cucumbers either…they irritate my skin as well! And I’ve actually heard that from quite a few people (they made my cousin’s face break out in hives). I should have clarified in my post that I use the Yes to Tomatoes or Blueberries which don’t seem to do that. It’s funny because the Cucumber is meant for sensitive skin, go figure. Never tried the MAC ones. My go to wipes are the Yes to Tomatoes, Neutrogena and Ole Henriksen. Sometimes I use Olay. But I don’t discriminate, I like oils and cleansing waters for removing makeup as well. The cleansing water by Koh Gen Do has been my favorite so far (yet to open the Bioderma!). xx

  2. Hello,
    I barely used face wipes….but sometimes, they can be handy. Have you tried the one from Acure organics?

      No I haven’t! I will check them out. Do you have a review on them? 🙂

  3. I’ve heard great things about these! I tend not to use wipes but use them prior to cleansing if I’m wearing heavy make-up 🙂

    I do use cleansing wipes only in dire situations. I prefer to do a full cleanse. However, I love the Koh Gen Do Spa Water Wipes. Heavenly. But any wipe when you cannot wash your face is better than not washing at all!

      I’ve never tried the Koh Gen Do water wipes (just the cleansing water). They’ll be added to the list for sure!

  5. I’m not a fan of make-up wipes. They always irritate my skin, even the most gentle ones. But these sound pretty good, glad you like them.

      Sometimes it’s hard to find good ones but these definitely are. I guess I’m pretty lucky I’m not too sensitive to wipes, but I’ve encountered some bad ones in my time. 🙂
