Product Review: Nivea Fragrance Free Cleansing Wipes

Face wipes have two purposes: 1) Making things easier for me when I make a half-assed attempt at cleaning my face before crawling into bed on nights where I just can’t be bothered and 2) Making things easier for me when I make a half-assed attempt at cleaning my face when I’m on holiday. I love a dry wipe, and these ones by Nivea have just the right amount of moisture to suit my fussy face-wipe tastes. The Nivea fragrance free wipes are my holy grail wipes because they do a decent job of removing my makeup (although I am yet to find one that removes anything as well as my ol’ faithful – Cetaphil) and they cause no irritation or redness in my skin whatsoever. The Nivea Fragrance Free Facial Cleansing Wipes are currently available for purchase from Chemist Warehouse for $6.39 AUD.

Autumn Reading List (+ Summer Reviews)

(I’ve already finished Ten by Gretchen McNeil but I’m incluing it as an Autumn read anyway…)

What I Did by Christoper Wakling (4/10) – This was one of the designated reads for the book club that a group of my friends and I have together. It wasn’t something that I could see myself picking up of my own accord, which is one of the things I love most about being part of a book club. I started out really liking it, but it ended with a terrible anticlimax that made me change my opinion of the book as a whole leading more towards the negative.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (8/10) – I really liked this book, and I won’t say too much about it because it’s one of those books that the less you know about it the better it will be.

1Q84 (Book 1) by Haruki Murakami (6/10) – I enjoyed this but I found it quite obvious that it was part one in a trilogy. I didn’t feel like there was a complete story in the book, which was a bit frustrating but having said that I was captivated by the story enough to look forward to reading the other two books in the trilogy.

Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides (10/10) – A new favourite book. This was such a beautiful story, so fascinating and incredibly well told. It came highly recommended to me and now I highly recommend this to you.
