Run out of those wipes you use with wax strips - any ideas?

So I want to wax my tache again but have used up all the wipes in the pack.

What do I use for getting rid of any waxy stickiness? confused

Fwiw 20 facial wax strips and 2 wipes seems like a daft set up! hmm

Baby oil, bio oil, even olive oil. In short, oil!

I did that last time (neutrogena body oil I think) and got loads of little white pimples. The tache was a better look! blush

Would olive oil be better?

Hmmm, olive oil might be gentler. Or coconut oil maybe?

I actually never use those. I just wash my face with my cleanser afterwards (Cetaphil).

For future reference, I cut the wipe in half, then put half back in the foil pouch and seal it up. Works great.

I use baby oil on a cotton wool pad .

However last week in the yellow ticket bargain section of superdrug I got a 20pk of Veet after-waxing wipes for 49p. Bargain of the week grin
