Help the environment and get free make-up remover


by Yours |

Fancy free make-up remover and the warm glow of knowing you're helping the planet? Then pledge to stop using disposable make-up remover wipes.

Call the Midwife favourite Helen George has launched a nationwide Sanctuary Wipe Amnesty campaign encouraging women to banish wipes from their skincare regime for good.

In the last year, a staggering £117m was spent on cleansing wipes in Great Britain (Kantar WorldPanel 2015) yet in independent clinical studies, Sanctuary found that their new Micellar Water (£8/200ml) removes foundation 50 per cent faster and more effectively than a leading cleansing wipe as well as being 46 per cent more effective at removing everyday grime.

“A cleansing routine that was once acceptable ten years ago is no longer enough for skin," says Jacqueline Burchell, Sanctuary Global Product Development Director. "Every day, skin is exposed to potentially damaging elements. From sunlight and pollution to wind and central heating. A real cleansing regime is a vital step to the extra TLC skin now needs. The main aim of cleansing is to clear the skin of all dirt, impurities and dead skin cells which will allow your skin to breathe and leave skin looking and feeling fabulous.”

The Sanctuary Wipe Amnesty will take place over March 19 and 20 in Boots stores nationwide. You can exchange an old, new or unwanted pack of wipes for one of 50,000 free 50ml samples of the Sanctuary Foaming Micellar Cleansing Water and some cotton pads.
