Beauty: Product debunk What's the fuss about... quick wipes?

These little pre-doused pads cleanse, tone and moisturise in one, but can they replace our beloved bottles and jars? In short, no. To do so they'd require a fair few chemicals, and they can't replace the hands- on massaging action of a dedicated regime. But wipes are great for occasional use: handy on-the-move make-up removing tools that will freshen you up in a flash. Keep them by your bed for those nights when the cleanse, tone and moisturise routine is too much hard work.

Johnson & Johnson Facial Cleansing Wipes, pounds 3.49 for 25. With a lovely Baby Lotion aroma, these are the kindest wipes. Suitable for sensitive skin and great value. lllll

L'Oreal Plenitude Cleansing Wipes, pounds 4.50 for 24. Enriched with Vitamin C, it's the only wipe with pretensions to improving the skin. Not convinced it's worth the extra expense. ll

Laboratoires Garnier Synergie Express 3-in-1 Cleansing Wipes, pounds 3.99 for 25. Effective cleansing action, with little residue left behind, probably due to the toner action. lll

Nivea Cleansing Wipes, pounds 3.99 for 25. One of the original wipes, these remove eye make-up, and cleanse and tone. Efficient, but perhaps too astringent for sensitive skins. llll
