What is Wingman?

Wingman is a premium wipe designed to remove dirt, oil and bacteria that accumulate on the skin’s surface during the day. Each wipe is comprised of a mixture of soothing Aloe Vera, Fresh Peppermint Oil and Invigorating Ginseng.

What we thought?

When the term ‘wipe’ is used, you instantly think ‘lightweight, flimsy’ medicinal wipes that tear on impact. The whole ethos of the Wingman brand is built around man, and the Wingman wipes take into account the unintentionally ‘heavy handed’ approach (which will undoubtedly be the method of use for most men), by making the wipes reassuringly thick, probably best likened to a featherweight towel, than tissue.

Another clever feature of the wipes is that despite their cleansing attributes, they don’t leave the skin feeling parched and dry, a trait normally associated with wipes. I myself having dry skin have always been cautious with wipes, but had to admit that after using Wingman, my skin felt at least as moisturised, if not more than prior to use.

The final test for Wingman was the smell test; a) did it deodorise and b) was the smell left a ‘masculine’ one. Again Wingman scored top marks of both accounts; the scent left is one reminiscent of the lightweight summer fragrances, exuding an air of cleanliness that we associate with summer. Perfect for the gym bag, as a travel companion on holiday’s to hotter climates, or for troublesome hard to clean areas such as behind your ears, between your toes etc.

So Wingman has passed the Ape to Gentleman test, but we want to give all of you the chance to try Wingman out for yourself. Wingman have kindly given us 50 wipes to giveaway to you our loyal readers, so each day this week (Monday 6th – Friday 10th December) we will be giving 10 of  you the opportunity to try out this new cleansing phenomenon for yourself.
