Have you been to a fashion show before?

These are the things that people are most excited about:

Hair and makeup




Models getting ready to go on stage


They strut their stuff


They do the final walk out together


The esteemed designer takes the walk of honor


(Karl Lagerfeld’s 2014 Spring-Summer Haute Couture collection for CHANEL, held January 21st at the Grand Palais in Paris. Don’t think I don’t keep up with fashion trends just because I’m a beauty blogger hor. Hahaha. I absolutely LOVE this collection for its clean lines, fitted cuts, feminine lines, and eclectic embellishments.)


Everyone claps and leaves.

What happens then?

Have you ever wondered?


What happens backstage,

To the models?

Away from the blinding stage lights, down the flight of stairs lit by florescent bulbs, navigating through a maze of laminated corridors, into a sea of garment, sequins, hair sprays and stilettos, the model charges towards her seat and into her bag reaches for the one thing that puts a stop to the day’s work.

Ah, found it! In her hand, a pack of FACIAL CLEANSING WIPES.

At the end of the day, it’s another show over. Models want to remove their wigs and makeup quickly and retire for the day.

I haven’t been to a Chanel Fashion Show, but I guess this is what happens backstage.


We’re not all models and celebrities, but we do still wear makeup, don’t we?

There’s nothing more satisfying than a splash of water, but when we don’t have the time or tools to properly wash our faces with cleanser and water, cleansing wipes save the day!

NIVEA Facial Cleansing Wipes


For over 100 years, NIVEA has constantly provided high quality products at affordable prices. I’m sure every household has a little NIVEA-something. 🙂

NIVEA Facial Cleansing Wipes are perfect for those of us who are too tired/lazy/drunk/don’t have access to clean water to clean our faces before bed. For people who are traveling, hitting the gym or those with oily, acne-prone, or sensitive skin, using a wipe to remove grime on the skin is better than doing nothing.

Seriously, it’s the ONE STEP that decides if you are going to have clogged pores and dirty pillow cases or not!

Choose A Facial Wipe That’s Right For Your Skin

Skin Type: Oily-Combination Skin

Use: NIVEA 3-in-1 Exfoliating Wipes

If your face is oily or if you have breakouts, these wipes contain Magnolia Bark extract which has strong anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which eliminate bacteria that causes acne outbreaks. $9.90 for 20 sheets


Skin Type: Normal-Combination Skin

Use: NIVEA Refreshing Facial Cleansing Wipes

These wipes cleanse and tone the skin while keeping the moisture balance. Contains Lotus extract, Vitamin E, and Hydra IQ (A NIVEA-exclusive ingredient that ensures moisture is supplied to skin for over 24 hours). $9.50 for 25 sheets


Skin Type: Dry & Sensitive Skin

Use: NIVEA Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes

If you have dry skin, these wipes which contain Almond Oil, Calendula Oi, and Hydra IQ will make your skin soft and supple. $9.50 for 25 sheets


Skin Type: All Skin Types, Especially Sensitive Skin

Use: NIVEA Fragrance Free Facial Cleansing Wipes

Sensitive skin should use wipes that are alcohol-free, oil-free and fragrance-free since they will be less likely to irritate delicate skin. These wipes contain Vitamin E and Provitamin V5 which offer emollient and antioxidant properties, and soothe inflammation. $9.50 for 25 sheets

NIVEA Fragrance-Free Facial Cleansing Wipes



Nivea Fragrance-Free Facial Cleansing Wipes are great for sensitive skin as they do not contain alcohol nor fragrance, and do not leave an oily residue on the skin. They are gentle enough to use on sensitive skin without causing irritation or outbreaks.

I always bring these along with me for my workout sessions as they are a great solution to removing post-workout sweat and grime. I feel super yucky traveling home with an oily and sticky face!


Regardless of your skin type and wherever you are removing makeup from, your skin will feel clean and refreshed after using the wipes. Don’t rub too hard, especially if you have sensitive skin like mine.

I usually have a lot going on my face – foundation, concealer, loose powder, contour powder, blush, highlighter – so one sheet is barely enough. Two sheets, at least, for me.


I like that the NIVEA Facial Cleansing Wipes are tenacious and appear opaque even when stretched! Poor quality ones either tear or look holey, and start to shrivel and wrinkle during cleansing.


Sometimes life happens and it’s just not possible to do the whole stand-at-the-sink-put-your-hair-back-soap-and-water routine. So at least, at least, at least, wipe your face with a good facial cleansing wipe that helps to remove grime and keep your face moisturized.

Do bear in mind though that facial wipes are not a substitute for washing your face. Water and cleanser is still the best, but in times of need, I think wiping your face is still better than leaving makeup, dirt, and oil on.

If you’re worried about the side effects of using cleansing wipes, just use them in moderation, they’re safe to use from time to time and you won’t damage your skin as long as you don’t overdo it.
