Wjcon is an Italian makeup brand that I heard about through Maltese beauty bloggers. In the UK I never had access to a store but this month, I had to make a trip to Paola (in Malta) to check out the store.
These makeup wipes were the first thing to catch my eye while I was walking in. I was running out of my Johnson’s makeup wipes and seeing that these wipes cost €3.90 for 72 wipes, it was a no brainer to give them a go. Due to the low price tag, I didn’t have any high hopes for these. If they remove my makeup — I’m happy.
These certainly don’t disappoint! I’ve tried makeup wipes from more expensive, more famous brands and they don’t do as good a job as these. The wipes are very moist, each wipe is drenched in remover. The remover removes my makeup very easily, possibly even easier than my favourite Johnson’s makeup wipes. After using any makeup wipes I always wash my face to remove the residue and I did the same with these. My skin is left feeling very soft and moisturised and I never broke out from these.
My only issue with these wipes is that the material itself seems to crumble while I’m removing my makeup. I never thought of myself as someone who’s rough at removing my makeup but this fact may prove otherwise. That said, they only start crumbling towards the end of my removal process and I only ever use one wipe to remove my whole face of makeup.
I really like these wipes, I’m enjoying them. I’m about half way through the packet so I can’t talk about whether they will dry out or not by the end. So far they’re going strong — still as moist as they were when I opened this packet, I think the plastic lid does a great job at ensuring this and I have high hopes for them not letting me down till the last wipe.
I would say that I still prefer my favourite wipes, the Johnson’s Makeup Be Gone wipes simply because these crumble. That said, these wipes are much cheaper and they do the job. If they remain moist till the last wipe, I’ll repurchase these!
