3 Reasons to Wipe Your Face + GIVEAWAY (closed)

I’ve been blessed to receive many compliments on my skin over the years and am often asked what I do. I keep my routine very simple, I stick to what works, and I drink as much water as I can. For many of us, we simply don’t have the time or energy for a long bedtime routine, so the quicker it takes for me to get into bed, the better. That’s why part of my bed time arsenal is my Johnson’s Daily Essentials Facial Cleansing Wipes. I can’t go to sleep without two things: my headscarf and my wipes. Having used them pretty much every day for years, I’ve discovered some other ways to use these little helpful packs.

Here are 3 occasions that I wipe my face:

  • Before bed – This is hands down my number one way to use my wipes. Apparently as many as a third of all women don’t remove their makeup before they go to sleep. If I don’t wipe my face before bed time, I usually wake up feeling haggard and with a bit of a breakout. Not cute. What’s also not cute are the stains my makeup makes on my pillowcase. These wipes remove 99% of makeup, so they work perfectly to get my face clean for the night.
  • Before gym – When I do my beauty shop, I buy 2 packs of wipes; one to keep on my bedside table, and the other stays in my gym bag. My gym workout is after work, when I still have a full face of makeup on.The few times I’ve forgotten to pack my wipes I’ve had to resort to dancing with my makeup on which is worst feeling. I feel gunky and clogged up – sweat and mascara don’t mix well at all. To make my class on time, I need something that quickly and effectively removes my makeup so I’m ready for my workout.
  • When applying my makeup – These are also so handy when I’m actually applying my makeup. They’re especially useful when I have a heavy duty face, for example, if I’m shooting a video on that day. I keep my wipes nearby just in case I apply too much of something, make a mistake, or that lippie and shadow combo just doesn’t look as good as I thought it would. They’re an easy way to fix that particular spot on my face rather than washing my entire face and starting over unnecessarily.

    As a teacher, I often have to spend long days at school and end up coming home at 9pm 10pm in the evenings. This would save me in the late afternoons after a long dag when i need to carry on until the evenings.

    I would use it to remove my make up it will be convenient and easy seeing as I’m very lazy to remove make up before bed. This would make my life so much easier! Also I love all Johnsons products from face washes to creams you name it I have it.

    I have a pack next to my bed and a pack next to the couch AND a pack in my handbag!!! Best for removing make-up before bed, and I always have them handy for my brother who has down syndrome, to clean his face and hands – we use the sensitive wipes because we both have really sensitive skin! Can’t live without them!

      I have very sensitive and dry skin, so I continuously need to keep my face hydrated. So these wipes will help me to avoid having to wash my face at public bathrooms to stay hydrated but instead use wipes to do the awesome effortless job.

    Three ways how I use wipes

    I am a lover of make up. Whenever I step out of the house. I make sure my eyebrows and eyeliner is on fleek! After the late night grooves and coming home happy but tired. I always make sure I use wipes because they are convenient and fast to remove make up. I don’t want to that girl that goes to bed with make up on. My natural skin has to glow even when i don’t have make up!

    For hygiene purposes I use wipes for my hands when I don’t have hand sanitizer or when there isn’t a nearby tap.

    And my two year old niece always makes a huge mess whenever she has her favorite yoghurt. Wipes comes to rescue to wipe her mouth and hands.

    As my child is growing we constantly learning, playing and eating which is never neat with a 2 year old. I’ll use the wipes for a quick, easy and refreshing clean up means more time bonding with my son.

  7. August 29, 2017 / 6:23 pm

    I would use it all 3 ways because that’s what I currently do.

    After a long day of working hard and slaying all day sometimes the “get into bed routine” needs a bit of assistance. 💤

    I’ve got a pack of these babies by my bedside. Don’t need a mirror because I know how effective they are. I also have a pack in my car for every other occasion. 🚙

    They’re my go-to’s for my sensitive skin. My ride or dies. I always get excited if I know I can offer a wipe to another girl in need ❤️

  8. August 29, 2017 / 5:50 pm

    Remove my make up…. I’m really lazy to do my cleanser every night. This will be so helpful and easy

    wipes are amazing at getting out stains from any surface.crayon drawings on walls are most common at my home, i just use a wipe and go over the drawing and it instantly is remove.

  10. August 29, 2017 / 2:06 pm

    I like to wipe my face before taking a bath. It feels clean after using the wipes.
    Also very useful if you are away on holiday.

    I would love to win this because my pregnancy is making me very tired and that helps to go to bed with a clean face. Very easy.

    To remove makeup at night especially on lazy party nights, they are such a lifesaver.

  12. michell klopper
    August 29, 2017 / 7:20 am

    I will use them to wake my skin up in the morning and to take my make up of in the evening before bedtime…and I will also take some with me to work to refresh my skin and stay fresh and awake at work.

    So, I know this sounds crazy, but I discovered this a while ago. I usually dye my hair blue-black (self dye) hot mess. Anyway, Johnson’s facial wipes are the ONLY wipes that contain some sort of ingredient that actually gets the dye off my face without struggle (this is even after it’s left a stain)… try it! It works. I’ve tried it with other wipes but only Johnson’s works. Face wipes are imperative to my facial regime, I wear liquid eyeliner, eye pencil and mascara everyday of my life! 💕

    If this is not motivation enough, I have two sisters who inevitably use them too lol!

  14. Riétte
    August 28, 2017 / 9:50 pm

    To remove my make up, especially when travelling. I keep a supply in my car to freshen up during the day and keep my hands clean.

  15. August 28, 2017 / 9:30 pm

    I use them to take off my makeup if I am not at home and don’t have my face wash.

  16. Lynnith
    August 28, 2017 / 9:08 pm

    Hi! These are so handy! I am usually dead tired at bedtime that I often forget to take my makeup off, eek! I would definitely use these lovely wipes for my tired face, much better!

    As a single mother just getting home to a 6 year old ,making supper ,spending time with him its difficult to do the entire facial routine.. i would use it in the Evening yo not waste time to take off my make up n do facial .. i use it as it works and gives me extra time to spend with my son .

  18. Shantel Moodley
    August 28, 2017 / 12:21 pm

    I keep a pack at home , in the car and in my bag .

    Other than the normal uses , I use them when at work to disinfect my keyboard , workstation and even my cellphone . It is there where large amount of bacteria live .

    I used them to wipe the grumby hands of the kids before and after a meal and it works wonder soiling up a spill in the car .

    I love these wipes, I keep a pack in my bag and another at home. They come in so handy throughout the day. I wear glasses and find that the place where my glasses rest above my cheeks has an oily build up in the course of the day and I use the wipes to freshen up my face and remove the oily spots. I also use them to sanitize and keep my hands clean then at night I wipe my face again using them.

    I have sensitive skin. Excess oil on my face gives me a bad acne breakout. I use wipes to clean excess oil and dirt after cleansing my faith twice a day, use it as a makeup remover, sanitizer and good use in the toilet when you are constipated. Facial wipes are a life saver I tell you.

  21. Boeboe Theron
    August 28, 2017 / 12:19 am

    No girl can live without facial wipes..use it before bedtime, early morning & during day.. It’s refreshing and the best part it fits into your bag..Luv my wipes♡♡

    I work as a local model and artist and am always on the run, stashing 3 different makeup bags in my bathroom, my handbag, gym bag to stay prepared for that impromptu audition or shoot or general touch up. Doing my own makeup on the run in a work bathroom or gym can get quite messy, lol! My Johnson ‘n Johnson wipes are a great way to sterilise my my products and keep my cosmetic bags fresh without smudges.

    My best beauty hack! 🙂

    I love these Johnson wipes. theu have multiple uses, love using it for my face to remove makeup, even for hands as a quick sanitizer, use it for the kids when on the go, (to wipe their hands and mouths) , clean brushes to set blushers and foundation, to freshen up for that clean feeling and when out jogging.

    Hoping to win this! 🤞🏻

    I use my wipe’s to both remove oil from my skin during the day as well as to remove make up at night. I have a weird complexion that starts out super dry in the morning and then goes super oily during the day and your wipe keep me looking fresh.

    i have a baby and we rab our faces against each other. id use the wipes when i come back home to ensure a fresh surface for us to play squishy face and cuddle n kiss.

  28. August 26, 2017 / 11:03 am

    I would use the wipes on my face after a busy day at work and all I want to do is just pass out on the bed and don’t have the energy to walk to the bathroom to wash my face. Cool night stand accessory I say.

  29. Carolyn Augustus
    August 26, 2017 / 10:59 am

    I’d use it to keep my face and hands clean throughout the day. Our hands are more often than not a huge contributor to adding impurities onto our faces which in turn can cause breakouts.

  30. Fauzia
    August 26, 2017 / 10:53 am

    Hi, as I work in an environment where there is a lot of dust, I require the wipes to wipe my face now and then to avoid clogged pores and breakouts. Also it’s excellent when you have toddlers around, whose faces are constantly dirty and need a wipe, especially when travelling and you have limited excess to water and what’s amazing is that it suits sensitive skin so it doesn’t affect their skin

  31. Bianca Balutto

    I like to use them to wipe my makeup brushes clean before using them:)

  32. Elsie
    August 26, 2017 / 9:55 am

    Before bed will be the best time for me to ensure my face is clean from all the make up , to allow my skin to breathe .

  33. August 26, 2017 / 9:34 am

    I have 1000 uses for my wipes. I always buy a pack of 3 because I get real grump when I run out of them (ask the husband).

    Most importantly I use it to remove makeup. I wear matte lipstick everyday and we all know it is a biatch to remove. These wipes do the trick.

    A lazy Sunday where I really don’t want to shower (don’t look at me like that. We all do it lol) these wipes have me feeling fresh, so my husband can atleast sit next to me without giving me a stank face.

    Last but not least, I actually use it on my kitty to wipe his paws and little butt if he missed a spot. His name is Jon Snow (yes named after the character in Game of thrones) He is all white so he gotta stay clean.

    Yaaaay for wipes!!!!

  34. Minette
    August 26, 2017 / 7:46 am

    This would be a good idea to use on my face when the makeup has melted of my face around two everday (because I can’t seem to keep my hands of my face).
    Normally I would reaply my base at work on top of my half done face…which would look much better if I just took it all off and start fresh.

  35. Natasha
    August 26, 2017 / 7:22 am

    There is not a day that goes by where I don’t use Johnsons facial wipes. I use them every day as soon as I come from work to remove the makeup from my skin. Normally the eyeliner smudges and makes your skin look darker below my eyes , so I use the facial wipes to cleanse this as well . It really leaves my skin feeling refreshed and cleansed and prevents me from getting any breakouts . I just love Johnsons Essentials Daily Wipes . ❤️❤️❤️

    My life is so busy that every time after studying I just want to fall asleep meaning on some days I don’t wash my face. I would keep them by my bedside and just wipe my face before falling sleep and also in the car for those days when my face needs to look like it’s just been washed and moisturized as opposed to tired.

  37. Stavvie
    August 25, 2017 / 11:46 pm

    I love giving my brushes a quick wipe after doing my face. These daily wipes are gentle on the bristles but also effective at removing makeup so my brushes are fresh and clean for the next day.

  38. Lebogang
    August 25, 2017 / 9:57 pm

    I’ll use them every time I feel like my face need refreshment, I have a very oil skin most of the time my face become too shiny during the day so this wipes would really be helpful.

  44. Tracy
    August 25, 2017 / 3:59 pm

    I would definitely use it all day everyday, I gym daily and so difficult to spend time still cleaning off make -up in only an hour that I have for lunch and then still gym and re apply make-up. Cleansing wipes are so easy to use and quick to remove my make up it will be such an time saver. And over weekends we go away often so packing in the wipes will just be more convenient than wasting space and having bottles of make up remover that can spill.

    August 25, 2017 / 3:54 pm

    I don’t wear makeup so my face is directly affected by dust, sweat,and bacteria by having the Johnson’s Daily Essentials Facial Cleansing Wipes this will help to keep my face free of germ and fresh more than once a day so I will use the wipes to refresh and clean my face without worrying about my skin’s health.

  46. Brende
    August 25, 2017 / 2:46 pm

    I would throw it in my hand bag and use it for those days when your makeup goes in your eyes and starts burning and you end up with one eye smudged and one eye well….
    Which actually happens to me like every day 🙁

    August 25, 2017 / 1:24 pm

    I have 3 kids…. a 3 yr old and 8 month old twins … all boys…need I say more???
    My day is crazy busy as I look after the kids myself… so I barely make it to shower everyday … also my twinsare teething so they constantly trying to suck.my chin or I end up with cereal on my face … I would really love the Johnsons wipes so I can feel refreshed , clean and revitalised and especially so that I actually look like I washed my face … and with 3 kids I barely have any money left to buy stuff for myself so this would be a real spoil and a great help…

  48. August 25, 2017 / 1:02 pm

    I have terrible skin and my pores get easily clogged when i apply foundation. Winning the wipes would result in an easy bedtime routine for me in terms of removing makeup

    Oh my gosh wipes come in handy after a long day. Most of the time I arrive from campus with all the pollutants of the environment on my skin and sometimes apply make up so I have those days that I am too tired to wash my face so I feel like I would use my wipes for this. Wipes are refreshing n feel good on the face,I mean every lady could use with a pair of wipes to exfoliate after a long day at the comfort of their own space at arm’s reach. Thank you. 😊😊 @pretty_gangsta_

    If i win this hamper i will use my wipes daily to clean my hands and face..We often forget that dirty hands can also lead to breakouts on the face because we touch our face without realising the amount of dirt we leave behind..
    Definitely using it as my cleaning routine daily.
    Cleaning my hands through the day.
    Removing makeup and dirt buildup at night before bedtime.
    *Beautiful and healthy looking skin boost a womans confidence☺

  59. August 24, 2017 / 11:12 pm

    Oh I would definitely use these before bed (I already do and just used one now). I’m addicted to wipes, I don’t know how I ever lived without them. I find these cleansing but not harsh on my skin. I’d also pop some into my handbag to carry around as they’re so refreshing for a quick wipe during the day.

    They’re also incredibly useful living in a part of Joburg that often has water outages!

    A very nice product.

    If I should win 6 months worth of Johnson’s Face Care facial wipes i’ll use it everyday to keep my face fresh and clean before, during and after work. I do not wear a full face of make up to work everyday so when I’m half way through the day and I’m feeling gunky due to all the days activities I could just pop on over to my bag, grab a wipe and freshen up my face as easy as 1, 2, 3 🙂

    Before Gym

    I am a gym fanatic, and because of time constraints and motherhood duties I can only go to gym during lunch time.
    As you can imagine, this is tricky as I wear make up daily, the wipes would come in handy in removing the make up before my training session.

    I hope to win, and put these into good use.
