Description: Lumene is a manufacturer from Finland. They use a lot of natural ingredients in their products including Arctic water. Lumene Sensitive Touch 3 in 1 Cleansing Wipes are irritant and fragrance free. These are intended to be used instead of cleansers with water or any time you don’t have time for a full facial cleansing. I like to use them after cleansing to remove the last traces of makeup, dirt and grime from the day.
I use them on actors and models to get the layers of makeup off both before and after cleansing with a regular cleanser. Wipes are a staple for me and are necessary for all makeup artists whenever you are on a set or location shoot without access to running water.
Lumene is a brand many of you may not be familiar with. I first discovered this brand over 20 years ago while traveling out of the country. Due to my fragrance allergies and sensitive skin, I am always on a quest to discover effective products that don’t cause irritation.
I have used many products from the Lumene line and have been impressed with all of them. I have also tried over two dozen brands of other wipes and I keep going back to these.
Lumene products used to be difficult to find but they are becoming much more mainstream and available from many sources.
Morning Review: The cleansing wipes do an effective job of cleaning my face without scratching, tugging or irritating my skin. The cloth itself does a fairly good job of providing exfoliation without any harsh abrasives or chemicals. They have very little in the way of scent and simply smell clean. I also use these on the neck and décolletage.
Morning Rating = 4 Stars
Evening Review: At the end of the day my skin does not feel tight or irritated. The wipes effectively remove makeup and the 3-in-1 description in the title refers to their ability to remove makeup from your face, lips and eyes. Some mascaras and gel eyeliners will still require a separate eye makeup remover to remove all traces.
Overall Review: These are very good cleansing wipes for all skin types, especially those with fragrance allergies and/or other sensitivities. My only complaint about them is the packaging, which is the same complaint I have from all makeup wipes. The resealable flap with the adhesive backing does not seal tightly enough on its own to keep the package tightly sealed and prevent drying. Upon opening, I immediately place my package into a heavy quart-sized, double-zipper bag and store them in there. If you let yours dry out, you will need to add some distilled or other sterilized water to them to rehydrate them. Tap water contains traces of bacteria, which is why I prefer to use distilled water.
These wipes are suitable for both women and men. I have used them on many male actors and models. No one has ever reported any sensitivity issues or complaints to me. (I even used one on my cat once and it left her coat soft and shiny, but I don’t recommend you try that, as some cats can get very hissy at the thought of any type of bathing.)
In general, I don’t think wipes are the best way to exclusively cleanse your skin, but they do serve a very good purpose in addition to your regular cleaning ritual.
