Review: TheFaceShop Herb Day Cleansing Wipes

I stumbled upon this the other day when I was buying a nail polish remover at TFS. I thought I would give this a try since it is on sale for IDR 39,000 (if I’m not mistaken). I have always favored the use of cleansing wipes because it is efficient to carry when travelling.
The larger version
Herb Day Cleansing Wipes
Saturated in the herbal cleansing complex formulated with Botanic extracts and Rosemary extract that purifies the skin, these convenient facial clenasing wipes purify the skin while cleansing it gently.
The travel size packet
Water, dipropylene glycol, SD alcohol 40, aesculus hippocastanum bark extract, saponaria officinalis leaf extract, alchemilla vulgaris extract, salvia officinalis leaf extract, fragrance, methylparaben, rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) extract, EDTA-2NA

How I Use It
I take a sheet and gently wipe it all over my face to remove any traces of makeup or to freshen up.

What I Like About It
·         The packaging is simple with a flap top sticker that adheres strongly to the pack. The material for the packing has a doff finish with flowers and leaves imprinted on it.
·         It removes any residual eyeshadow or eyeliner that I may have previously
·         The sheets are 15 cm x 20 cm, which is quite large and can fit my whole face at once
·         It removes excess oil on my face
·         It leaves my face feeling soft, smooth, fresh and clean
·         It doesn’t break me out

What I Hate About It
·         The price is too high for cleansing wipes alone IDR 39,000 for 20 sheets. I can get IDR 7,500 for 20 sheet from MITU brand
·         It has a strong floral scent that I still can’t get used to
·         It contains SD Alcohol 40 which might be a little drying for the face
·         It can’t easily remove waterproof makeup products.
