I really like these face wipes - finally face wipes that I don't need to feel guilty about using, as they're biodegradable! I found these really effective at cleansing away stubborn make-up, and actually just as effective as the regular Swisspers face wipes which I use regularly. They don't have a tonne of scent, which is great if you have more sensitive skin or are more sensitive to scents in skincare products. I was a little worried that the wipes might be thin or tear easily, but I found the durability and texture of the wipes to be very similar to other, non-biodegradable, wipes that I've used in the past. Overall I'm really pleased that I've had the opportunity to try these out, and that I can now continue using make-up wipes guilt-free!

Swisspers ECO Wipes Review
Designed to be Earth kind, these luxuriously soft and large biodegradable wipes are a small step in the right direction to reducing household plastic consumption. Biodegradability tested in accordance with AS4736.
Gently cleanse and moisturise skin with one easy wipe
Available in Aloe and Sensitive.
Tips: Make sure you keep the pack tightly sealed, so that the wipes stay fresh and don't dry out!
I love these wipes. I use tons of wipes and I thought these would be more of the same, but they're far superior.
The first noticeable advantage is that the top is solid so the pack closes properly and the wipes don't dry out. Secondly they are big enough, thick enough and damp enough that they come out easily and separately and you don't end up with a big a handful that you don't need.
I have been using them to clean off my make up at nights and my skin finishes up clean and fresh without any sensitivity, which surprised me. It's also a big plus that they are biodegradable and the pack I was given to trial has aloe vera - which is lovely and soothing on my skin.
I note they retail around $8.50, which is a bit pricier than others, but for the easy of use, lack of waste, biodegradability, and gentleness on my skin, is worth the extra pennies.
I most definitely recommend these to others.
Tips: Keep a pack at work to freshen up during the day.
I was lucky enough to be on the trial team for the swisspers eco wipes. I received the Aloe Vera wipes. I typically don't use wipes on my face due to them being bad for the environment but i've been using these recently to remove my makeup. First impression i loved the scent, they smelt so fresh and pleasant. Using them on my face was so nice they felt good and i could remove all my makeup easily. I would most definitely be using these again in the future. I love the fact that they're biodegradable. Makes them so appealing to me !!
These eco-friendly, biodegradable, plant-based face wipes with Aloe Vera come in cute green and purple packaging. I was intrigued when I saw this sentence on top of the cute lift-up lid on these wipes: 'A soothing cleanse, leaving all skin types feeling as rested and calm as a rainforest'. If that doesn't entice you to lift the lid, I don't know what would! To me, that sentence conjured up thoughts of gentle skin pampering while on some kind of holiday in a tropical rainforest! And, hey, in the age of Covid, dreams are for free guys… Anyway, I for one couldn't wait to try these out.
The first thing I noticed was how strong and durable these large, generous wipes are. Some wipes feel like they could rip apart very easily while you’re using them, in fact - some actually do, but not so with these ones. I absolutely loved the thickness of them! They also feel lovely and moist - not too much so, but enough to know that these wouldn’t dry out too easily. The smell is very mild and subtle - definitely not too strong or fragranced like some face wipes can be. And the feel of them on my skin was gorgeously refreshing, gentle and mild - there’s no harsh cleansing feeling when using them, and they do not irritate my skin. It does feel quite pampering and enjoyable to use these.
How effective are they at removing makeup though? Well, here’s where this review becomes a little more tricky… They do an adequate-enough job, but I find that, compared to some face wipes I've used in the past, these aren’t quite as effective for that specific purpose. How do I know this? Because I had to wipe at least 2-3 times over the same spot to get rid of my makeup completely. I noticed there were slight smears of make-up around my under-eye area in particular, so I had to wipe over the same spot to completely remove it. I don't wear a lot of thick makeup either, so this was surprising and a little disappointing, because I do have to go to a bit more effort than usual to remove makeup when using these wipes. If you wear heavy eye make-up (which I do not), then you might actually need an additional eye makeup removal product handy, because I'm not sure how well these wipes would cope with heavy eye makeup... To be fair on Swisspers though, they don’t appear to be overly marketing the makeup-removal aspect on the packaging, they have said these ‘gently cleanse’, and this is accurate wording, in my opinion.
The verdict? These are nice, natural, eco-friendly, large, generously thick, moist wipes. They’re kind on the planet and feel lovely, cooling, gently cleansing and refreshing on the skin. I’d recommend these purely as pampering, refreshing facial skin wipes - for all skin types. But if you wear lots of makeup and were wanting to buy these specifically for makeup removal, I would think twice because in that regard, while they weren’t too bad, they weren’t great either at removing makeup.
Tips: If you wear heavy eye makeup in particular, you’ll need an additional eye makeup removal product at the ready.
These came in a smaller pack suitable for your pocket or bag.Swisspers Earth wise were mine.
They were a surprisingly tough, thick and larger than, so I have used, made with cotton and other renewable resources. They smelled lightly perfumed and were very gentle yet cleansed my face very well. Its says they have Aloe Vera to help soothe your skin.They were as stated on the packet soothing and leave you feeling rested too.I found them lovely and a handy pack.
Tips: At about $8 they are expensive but effective. Please read the wrapping well as I thought ECO meant you could recycle or even compost them but it says on the packet do not flush, place the wrapping in trash and you may recycle the tiny little purple lid but I suggest as it has no number it's best to bin it. Quite disappointing as I thought you could compost and recycle most of it
For a long time now I have used baby wipes to remove my makeup so I was extremely excited to try these!! These eco friendly facial wipes smell absolutely incredible!! I use one wipe to remove my makeup a second one to leave my skin feeling soft and cleansed. I always used to use three baby wipes as that’s what it took to remove it all completely but one of these facial wipes actually removes it all. I just like to use an extra one to fully clean and freshen my skin. I’m left with such soft skin. I love the fact these are plant based, eco friendly for the environment and contain the amazing soothing aloe Vera. All in all I am so happy with this product and will definitely be buying them from now on.
The packaging of these wipes is immediately attractive. If I saw this on the supermarket shelves, I would definitely pick them up. The bright green highlighted with purple is really lovely. Bonus points would be given that the wipes are plant-based and biodegradable. I also liked that there are a decent amount of wipes in the package, so it doesn't feel too mean.
Opening the sealed cover proved to be a little challenging, and it tore and crinkled at the sides, meaning it never quite sealed up again after first opening. The wipes inside were also a little difficult to separate when they're being pulled out.
The wipes themselves have a fresh and clean scent of aloe which was pleasant. They were nicely moistened which felt really nice and refreshing. Like most wipes, it took a few swipes to get my mascara off cleanly, but they are a generous-sized wipe, so one definitely does the whole job of taking a full face of makeup off.
All in all, this is a nice product that does a decent job, but it won't replace my favourite face wipes on the market.
Tips: Take care opening the sealed tag for multiple uses.
I will use these up because they get most of my makeup off, but I wouldn’t purchase again. They claim to get even waterproof mascara off, but my normal mascara didn’t really budge and when it did it was all over my face #pandaeyes. My boyfriend even laughed at me as I was removing my makeup at the end of the day. For me, I like the wipes to bottom line take my makeup off, and these didn’t. But if you don’t need that exactly, and are just after a refreshing wipe these would be great.
Tips: Have some Micellar water handy if you’re taking off mascara.
Thank you Beauty Review for providing me with these wipes to review. The packaging is bright green and purple with a hard plastic resealable top which I really like. The wipes have a pleasant perfume and are a good size. I like that they are ecofriendly and plant based. The wipes removed all my makeup easily and quickly and my skin felt clean, soft and moisturized, no irritation for my sensitive eye area.The addition of Aloe Vera is a plus, and I would highly recommend these biodegradable wipes.
Tips: Take these on holiday, very handy.
I really liked these wipes. I usually use baby wipes or facial wipes at the end of the day but am very aware of how much waste this creates as sometimes I have to use 2 depending on makeup.
These are a great idea and I would definitely buy again as they are biodegradable and earth kind compared to their counterparts. They smell lovely but aren't a strong smell just slight which is nice. The only issue I would see with these is that I would have to moisturise after using these even though they say they moisturise also. They didn't seem overly drying but I have combination skin so some dry areas so i still had to moisturise just to be safe.
The price point on these is pretty good considering they're biodegradable and still cost less than for example the Nivea wipes - I would love a larger than 25pack though.
Makeup (including eyeliner and mascara) came off super easy and they were soft. It is a relaxing smell too so no issues adding this into my daily routine.
Tips: Depending on your skin I would recommend moisturising afterwards if that is what you would normally do.
