Beauty wipes, makeup remover wipes, cleansing cloths, facial wipes… they have a few names but the idea is all the same. These wipes are designed to clean your face sans the sink and water. Nearly every brand is offering a cleansing wipe. I discovered that many of the inexpensive drug store brands are made overseas. However, looking among prestige brands, I found that many makeup remover wipes are made in the USA.
For a busy day or during travel, facial wipes are handy. I would not ditch the traditional cleanser in lieu of the wipes but skipping a night here or there won't be a disaster when you have these on hand. Place a package on your night table for evenings you collapse into bed. Did you know that each night you sleep with your makeup on accelerates the aging process?!
Our favorite American-made makeup remover wipes:
With the popularity of the makeup removing wipes, companies have offered more of a variety instead of just basic cleansing cloths. They have addressed some specific skin care needs and tailored different wipes to accommodate us.
- For blemish prone skin try the Murad Acne Clarifying Wipes. Cleanses, fights bacteria and unclogs pores.
- Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes are formulated to be soothing and gentle on sensitive skin. The cloth is also natural, aloe is used to soothe and the wipe is fragrance free.
- Philosophy brand makes the Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cloths. This wipe is for all skin types using gentle and mild cleansing agents.
- Moisturizing Cleansing Cloths by Stila are another made for all skin types. This formula pays special attention to sensitive skin needs as well, and the wipe is biodegradable.
