Miconahex + Triz wipes at the moment. They seem to work well for wrinkle cleaning every couple days.
My vet recommended a warm wet washcloth once or twice a day for her deep wrinkles and it has made a huge difference in the skin on her face. She seems to like getting her face washed. Every now and then we use Malaket wipes, but she hates those.

I use unscented baby wipes to clean the face and wrinkles. Washcloths are way to rough to use on the face. I also use Mal-a-Cet wipes to clean the wrinkles.
Clean with soapy water mixture of warm water mixed with a medicated dog shampoo. Wipe dry and dust with Gold Bond if needed to help with moisture. If red and raw looking medicate with Desitin diaper rash ointment. Desitin also works well around the tail as well
I use unscented sensitive skin baby wipes for Betty's wrinkles. She still has tear stains though (they don't smell funny or look irritated). She gets Brita filtered water because I heard that unfiltered water can sometimes cause tear stains. Any tips for getting rid of the stains? Does witch hazel do the trick?

Has anyone use Well& Good Hypoallergenic Deodorizing wipes for their Bulldogs to cleans the wrinkles on the head and face? I also brought Well & Good Eye Wipes to wipe her tear stains does anyone know if these are okay to use??
I currently use Dechra Miconahex+Triz wipes. I get it from Amazon for $10! After wiping & drying, I also use Tritop, it helps protect & heal from all the cleaning that nose gets - poor guy used to get so raw from our twice daily cleanings. I also have a spray version of the wipes that I have to spray under his front paws (he has allergy issues that we currently are trying to figure out).
I used to use Malaket wipes & Chlorohexidine (Duoxo), which each worked at first but then became ineffective. Don't be afraid to try different wipes or even the household products others have listed - it all depends on the dog, I just have an allergic yeastball of a dog so we stick to the medicated stuff
After years of trying every product on Amazon I have found this to be most effective balance but every dog is different & both my dogs have skin allergies / sensitive skin:
1. Dry tissues daily used gently for eyes, nose, ears, & tail pocket. Keeping them dry + maintaining natural skin barrier is key...The longer a folded area is wet/moist, the more chance of yeast/ irritation/ tear stains.
2. MalAcetic Wet Wipes (cheaper but smell like fake peaches) OR Douxo Chlorhexidine Wipes (slightly more expensive but smells more neutral) weekly-ish depending if anything looks/smells funny, in between toes, nose, ears, tail pocket + extra special treat for putting up with it. Tater runs when he hears the MalAcetic wet wipes lid pop open but we don't blame him for not wanting to smell like "sh*tty peaches."
3. Douxo Antiseptic Chlorhexidine & Climbazole Mousse for yeasty flare-ups in toes or nose rope once a day for a week + extra special treat for putting up with it. This help restore the natural skin barrier that keeps out yucky irritations.
4. Snout soother for dry nose when needed, although this isn't a wrinkle, it's part of the routine.
Someone once said to me you have to think of cleaning routines for bulldogs like human babies & they were right!
