Review: Nivea Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes + a giveaway!

So in one of my recent posts, this one specifically, I told you all about how much I loved the Nivea 3-in-1 Daily Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Wipes. I also mentioned that there were two variants, right? Well, I’m here to review the second one, which is the Nivea Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes!


Daily Essentials Gentle Face Cleansing Wipes specially developed to care for the needs of dry & sensitive skin softens & soothes your skin.

Dry to sensitive skin needs to be especially well hydrated, nourished and protected, because it usually lacks moisturising elements and resistance against external factors. Replenishing the skin with moisture is essential for skin to feel hydrated and look radiant all day long. This is why NIVEA has introduced revolutionary Hydra IQ moisture technology.

Enriched with Natural Almond Oil & Hydra IQ the Gentle Facial Cleansing wipes:

  • Gently cleanses, removing make-up and waterproof mascara
  • Leaves skin feeling hydrated
  • The formula with Natural Almond Oil is mild and caring and it suitable for dry & sensitive skin.
  • Formulated with Hydra IQ technology to enhance your skin’s natural moisturisation.

The skin is mildly cleansed & moisturised looking radiant and feeling soft all day long.


In terms of the size of the sheets, they’re the same as the exfoliating wipes in that they’re quite big. Basically as long as a cleansing wipe is bigger than my hand, then I’m happy. The biggest difference between the two though is that these don’t have the exfoliating bumps; it’s completely smooth on either side.


To show you how effective these wipes are, I’ve generously swatched different kinds of makeup on my hand. I have on foundation (light-medium coverage), eyeshadow, concealer (cream), lipstick (long-lasting and semi-matte), lipgloss, liquid eyeliner (waterproof), and mascara (waterproof).


Before I start, I’ll show you how I use the wipes to get the most out of them. I fold every sheet into quarters and use each ‘square’ for each area of my face. So one for my left cheek, right cheek, t-zone, then the upper lip and chin. That’s all from one side of the sheet. I finish off by repeating the same process with the other side. This helps make sure you use as much of the sheet as possible!


Alright, now to get to work. After just one swipe using one ‘square’, you can see how most of the makeup is gone already. Yes, that was from only one, gentle swipe! So far, it’s only the waterproof eyeliner, and a mix of the lipstick and lipgloss, that’s really trying to hold on for dear life.


This is the result on the sheet from that one swipe. I didn’t even use the entire square, just half!


I flipped the sheet over to another, clean square and again swiped the back of my hand only once. Now look, the makeup is all but gone already! All that’s left is a hint of the lipstick and eyeliner.


I finished the job by using the remaining, clean sides of the sheet all over my hand and employing a mix of swiping and gently rubbing. In less than a minute the job was done and the back of my hand was ready-for-bed clean. I even ran a cotton ball soaked with astringent all over and not a trace of makeup could be found on it. Not only that, my skin felt a little smoother and more supple too!

If the back of my hand was my face, and I didn’t have the time or the energy to wash with a cleanser, I can go to sleep completely confident that my skin was clean enough for me to not worry about clogged pores causing breakouts or damaging my skin in any other way the next day. In fact, that’s exactly how I feel on days (or should I say nights) when I suddenly fall asleep and don’t get the chance to wash my face because I’ve made it a habit to wipe my face clean with the Nivea Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes as soon as I get home everyday. Plus, my dry skin only benefits from the extra moisture the wipes give!

I’m sure you’re now wondering which variant I prefer. Honestly, it’s difficult choose! I like to use both interchangeably. But if I really had to pick just one, it would be the Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes. For me, it offers the same deep cleaning action but with the added hydration that my skin also needs.


  • Deep cleans the skin.
  • Provides extra hydration to my face and makes it feel more supple.
  • The wipes aren’t thin and flimsy like with cheaper brands.
  • They don’t leave any residue behind.
  • Affordably priced.


  • Has a light, floral scent. Just something to take note for those of you who are particular when it comes to fragrances in beauty products.
  • Even if you don’t have dry skin, you can certainly still use this variant. Just remember to still exfoliate 1-3 times a week, depending on your skin’s sensitivity, because exfoliation is very beneficial to oily skin. If you want to know why, have a read of my review on the Nivea 3-in-1 Daily Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Wipes here.

    • Hi Glorie, I’m referring to blogs that are only used to post about other giveaways the owner wants to win. Basically it’s not a legit blog and they don’t have any true entries of their own. I mentioned them because sometimes one of the optional choices in the raffle widget is to make a post about my giveaway :)

  1. I got this from my bdjbox subsription, and it’s very effective especially if I use makeup and it does the job for me. I wanted to win this because my oldest sister is buying makeups for the first time, and I told her about this wipes that it can easily remove all your makeup and exfoliate her face at the same time, since she had oily skin. :)

  2. I want to win this, because I want to ring in 2015 (or at least the 2nd month of 2015 hehe) using some of Nivea’s new offerings. There are some Nivea products that are absolute keepers and repurchases for me, so I’m hoping the wipes will be the same! :)

  3. honestly, I never tried a facial cleansing wipe that satisfies me a lot , most of them don’t cleanse my face after all. I want to try the Nivea Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes like you do :D I always saw this to my favorite make up gurus. I am a newbie in terms of make up and I am really interested to try new makeup brands but the problem is how can I erase it easily. and now, I read your blog post and I am quite satisfied about the effect (specially when you erase your make up in your hand) and I will be more satisfied (I think) if I can have it on my own :D Thank you very much for this giveaways :)

  4. I want to win these goodies because I often experience breakouts when I have not removed my makeup completely. Having a good makeup remover wipe would help me encourage in exploring makeups without being scared of having a breakout because the makeup was removed properly.Thanks!

  5. I want to win this coz i wanna try it! Been having a lot of breakouts lately and i dunno if its because of my makeup remover or what..
